My Fit Dupes

Did you miss last week’s giveaway? It’s not too late to enter!

A grocery list and instructions for making 3 cheap & easy dupes of My Fit Foods meals | The Slender Student

I’m really excited about this post. This is the kind of post that epitomizes what The Slender Student is all about: making healthy choices accessible and realistic for college students. While y’all occasionally humor my strange predilection toward creating some less-than-simple meals, I know that recipes like today’s are why you come here. Throw in the fact that these meals average less than $2.50 each, and I think you’ll keep on comin’ back.

  1. I loved the fit dupe on the lemon turkey dish. It’s my favorite thing they have and now I know how to make it so easily and cheap!

  2. Hi,

    My husband sent me a link to your blog because he is tired of me spending so much on My Fit Foods. So after perusing your blog, I have copied the grocery list you provided (I also added ingredients for the Avacado Black Bean lettuce wraps and the Slender Single Serving Mug Brownie…yummy) and I am excited to give your way a shot.

    I have one request — can you do a My Fit Dupe for the My Fit Foods Oat Bakes? No rush, but that would be seriously amazing since I am seriously addicted!

    Thanks and I look forward to following your blog!

    • Hi Kate! I’m so happy to hear you’re trying to many Slender Student recipes! I love MFF too, but it’s not always easy on my wallet. While I haven’t perfected a dupe for their Oat Bake (which, omg, I love), I do have a baked oatmeal recipe here: Mine is not quite as moist as MFF’s but is still delicious and has a bit better nutrition, in my opinion.

  3. LOVE this! I just finished the 21 day challenge at MFF and was about to start trying to re-create some of the food. So glad someone is ahead of me! Thank you!

  4. Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your
    article seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.

    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d
    post to let you know. The layout look great though!
    Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Cheers

  5. I just love these recipes. I want to try the 21 day challenge by My Fit Foods. But it is just too expensive. So thank you so much for these dish “remixes”. I just finished making all three for my 4 day dinner meal plan.. And they ALL ROCK!. I must add I am not a big fan of Turkey dishes.. but I LOVE every one of these.. :)

  7. I love your blog! I have been trying to dupe the MFF recipes but am a little challenged in the kitchen. Do you think your mashed potatoes recipe could be used for the mashed cauliflower?

  8. Great info. MFFoods is convenient , but not cheap. I wold add 1 cup of veggies for vitamins. For breakfast It is easier to measure 1cup yogurt, cereal, open faced turkey or smoothie.

  9. Hi Claire, love what you’re doing. MFF is awesome but from what I’ve heard from some of my clients (especially those with kids or tight budgets) it can be tough on the wallet. Anyway, I don’t know if you know this but MFF builds most of their meals on a 40/40/20 split, meaning 40% carbs and protein and 20% fat. This is the same split I put my clients on when they do any meal plans.

    Have you ever tried to alter your recipes to adhere to this concept? Thanks!

  10. Thanks so much for this! I love that you did a grocery list for THREE meals that share ingredients for MFF. Are there more recipes that you created with shared ingredients that I can prepare at once? I am a single working mama of 4, so EFFICIENCY is soooo helpful. Thanks so much and the best in your endeavors!
