Fat Loss Friendly Deviled Eggs

By Blair Lindler Deviled eggs are one of my favorite foods – Grandma turned me onto them when I was just a wee one. But as I’ve grown up, I’ve found new and “improved” (read: healthier) ways to make one of my favorite finger foods to take to picnics, pot-lucks, or any sort of party (football games included!) As football season comes into full swing with its tailgates and rivalries, this seems ...[Read More]

Lazy Fajitas and Guac

Lazy Fajitas and Guac

By Blair Lindler   One of my biggest weaknesses when it comes to food is Mexican food. I love it. I love going to our local Mexican restaurant and savoring every bite. However, it doesn’t take a genius to know that it isn’t exactly on the “good list” for eating right or following a fat-loss lifestyle. So when I get the hankering for some Mexican, I have this one go-to dish. I love this dish b ...[Read More]

Gluten-Free Fruit & Oatmeal Bars

By Jennifer Pittman It’s a rainy morning here at my house today. My husband and I woke up to the sound of thunder and rain on the roof-top. It’s been a super rainy summer here in Eastern NC, but I don’t mind. I *love* the rain! Perhaps because Fall is looming around the corner, or perhaps it’s the gloomy weather…either way, I got an urge to bake-up some comfort food on this rainy September morning ...[Read More]

Metabolic Effect’s Quick Chili

By Blair Lindler Sunday’s always seem to creep up on me incredibly too fast – the weekends never seem to last as long as they should!  But one of the standing traditions in my life is food prep that gets me set up with “fast food” for the whole week that keeps me on track with my healthy diet and minimizes the need or desire for  junk food that does nothing positive for my body’s needs. This Sunda ...[Read More]

{Healthy Lasagna Recipe} Zucchini Lasagna

By Blair Lindler Healthy Lasagna Recipe?  Yes Please! I’m obessed with Pinterest.  No, really.  I love that website.  And I especially love it when I’m browsing and am surprised with a seemingly delicious and too-easy-to-be-true recipe.  This was the case when I found a recipe for Zucchini Lasagna.  Now, if you’ve got any experience with the recipes on Pinterest, you also know that they rarely com ...[Read More]

Easy Weeknight Dinner – Mesquite Chicken Thighs and Summer Tomato Salad

By Jennifer Pittman   When it comes to weeknight meals, I’m all about simple, quick and easy. Oftentimes, my husband and I don’t get home on weeknights until 6:30 or 7:00; leaving a small amount of time for supper prep. This recipe is my favorite weeknight “go-to” because it’s yummy, fat-loss friendly, cost effective for feeding a family and literally only takes about 15 minutes of true prep ...[Read More]

Peanut Butter Hummus

By Kate Horney From Snicker-doodle to caramel apple and (gasp!) chocolate chip cookie dough, any seasoned pinterester knows that “dessert hummus” is all the rage on healthy eating pinboards. But a “healthy” recipe is not necessarily a fat loss recipe.  Foods can be healthy (with lots of fiber, nutrients, vitamins, minerals and even “natural” sugars) but can do nothing to burn fat… and may even sta ...[Read More]
