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]

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]

Chicken Bruschetta

By Blair Lindler So the other weekend, my house-mate and I were brainstorming what we wanted to cook for dinner.  We were hungry.  Our tomato plant had just produced a handful of small tomatoes, so we wanted to use those.  I wanted chicken. We decided on Italian.  But we just couldn’t seem to find a recipe we liked.  So we decided to make it up as we went!  And that, my friends, is how we came to ...[Read More]

By Jennifer Pittman The countdown to Bikini Boot Camp continues… only 5 days left! There it is. Your daily lunchtime salad consisting of the “same-old-same-old”…probably something along the lines of salad greens, tomato and cucumber. BORING! While salads are a super important part of living a fat-loss lifestyle, it doesn’t mean that they have to be hum-drum to eat. You’ve got to get creative ...[Read More]
