The Lean, Mean (Fat Burning Machine)… Green Soup

By Kira O’Donnell  The weather is really starting to cool off which means it’s the perfect time of year for a hot bowl of soup! I do love my veggies but I must admit that I lack creativity when it comes to preparing them. I came across this recipe that was originally made using white potatoes… But I made it fat loss friendly by substituting with cauliflower! It goes great with a salad ...[Read More]

Gluten Free Turkey & Veg Meatloaf

Check out this slimmed down version of meatloaf instead. The recipe below cuts out the unnecessary fat by using lean ground turkey and gluten fre ...[Read More]

5 Minute Homemade Peanut Butter

By Kate Horney Confession: I’m a peanut-butter-a-holic. Yes, it’s a real condition… Unfortunately, like many man made products we consume, the peanut-butter on our grocery shelves today is far from natural or good for fat loss. Traditional peanut butter – the “normal” kind that we’re accustomed to – is often loaded with trans-fat. Trans-fat keeps the ...[Read More]

Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake

protein shakes, healthy snacks, fit moms

It’s pumpkin pie protein shake season!!! (Also known as, you know, just pumpkin season–but this shake is good enough to have it’s own season–trust me!) Ok, I might be a little too excited about pumpkin, but I just can’t help myself because…pumpkins are low in saturated fat and calories! Additionally, they provide so much fiber! And as a huge added bonus, pumpkins conta ...[Read More]

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]
