Jenny Craig Diet Recipes

What You'll Eat

Your meals will literally land on your doorstep. At first, you’ll have three Jenny Craig prepackaged meals and one snack a day, plus two to three servings of your own fruits, veggies, and non-fat dairy. Prepackaged options have scored well on taste tests and include cinnamon rolls, pancakes, burgers, cheese steak paninis, pasta, and chocolate walnut brownies. Remember, though, that Jenny products are designed to teach portion control, so don’t expect heaping amounts. Once you’re halfway to your goal weight, you’ll transition back to making your own meals using Jenny’s recipes. No food is off-limits, and you’re allowed to splurge on your non-Jenny favorites from time to time.

Recipe Resources

Jenny Craig offers hundreds of free, low-fat recipes on its website, and you can search by meal type, preparation time, and the kind of occasion you’re cooking for. There are other resources, too. Here are a few:
