About Chris Sloan

Chris Sloan, OPTAVIA Coach, 45lbs lost in 12 weeks comparison photo.

My name is Chris Sloan and I, like so many others struggled with my weight for years not realizing the toll being overweight was taking on my body. At the beginning of 2021 I began to take my weight loss efforts seriously and have lost 60 lbs so far on the OPTAVIA 5&1 Plan! It's been amazing, and while my journey isn't over, I'm well on my way!

When I started I had a hard time finding the top OPTAVIA 5&1 recipes, so I was so inspired to build this website to help compile some of what I felt are the best OPTAVIA recipes around. I'm happy to share it with you as well!

For those not familiar, OPTAVIA is not some fad diet but instead is a program designed to help those who are looking to lose weight make better choices with their health and wellness via better habits.

We've worked hard to make sure that all OPTAVIA 5 and 1 recipes listed are approved for the OPTAVIA 5&1 plan.

Lean & Green California Club Tacos Ingredients

  • 3 oz Grilled Chicken Breast Chopped
  • 2 slice Cooked Turkey Bacon Chopped
  • 1/2 small Avocado Diced
  • 2 tbsp Reduced Fat Ranch
  • 1/2 cup Diced Tomatoes
  • 2 cup Romaine Lettuce Chopped
  • 3 slice 2% milk provolone
  • 1 can Cooking spray

Lean & Green California Club Tacos Instructions

  1. Make provolone taco shells: Place 1 slice of provolone cheese on a paper plate (needs to be coated or leakproof) grease with the cooking spray or a microwave safe Taco rack holder. Microwave on high for 60 seconds.
  2. Remove from microwave immediately and, if necessary, reform cheese into a circle. Wait 5 seconds for the cheese to cool and then form into a taco shell shape on the edge of a dish or microwave safe taco rack holder. Let cool until set. Repeat for the remaining 2 slices of cheese.
  3. To make the filing: Toss the chicken, avocado, bacon, tomatoes, ranch, and lettuce to combine.
  4. Fill the cooled taco shells with the lettuce mixture. Serve any extra as a side-salad.
