Old Favorites with a New Twist
These recipes take good old fashioned comfort food and give them a healthier twist. Let's be honest, food makes us happy.

Your family probably won't even notice a difference! In fact, they might like it even more than the original!
As the old saying goes, "breakfast is the most important meal of the day." We've come to find that, across all facets of research, that it really is a critical component of a lean and healthy lifestyle. People who eat breakfast are less likely to overeat later in the day. Plus, having breakfast within 30 minutes of waking up takes your body out of starvation mode, boosting metabolism. Who doesn't want that? ;)
Light & Lean Lunches
With our hectic lives, putting together a healthy lunch to take to work is often put on the back-burner on the to-do list. Here, I'll show you how to make grab-and-go lunches throughout the whole week to help make your life easier and keep your healthy eating on track. No more running through the fast food drive-thru because there isn't anything else to eat or just grabbing some pizza and wings the rest of the office ordered-in. This takes out all the guesswork and gives you a lunchtime game plan.
