Green Bean Lasagna
*Image may vary from completed recipe

This is one of those cheesy dishes that uses only cheese as the lean, but I never seem to mind those recipes because I am a cheese lover you just need to watch the sodium. I also love green beans so this dish tastes very delicious to me. I know it isn't the same as regular lasagna but it is definitely a good substitute if you are craving it. Keep in mind to try and use 2% low fat cheese rather than fat free cheese because it melts better and won't taste as rubbery. Another choice to add to your lean and green meals!

About Chris Sloan

Chris Sloan 75lbs weight loss

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 75 lbs so far on the 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 5 and 1 recipes, so I was so inspired to build this website to help compile some of what I felt are the best recipes around. I'm happy to share it with you as well!

For those new to the plan, weighing your food is an integral part of the program; it's one of the critical elements. If you want to be successful, you need to ensure that each meal has been weighed according to the guidelines. And we're not talking about "close enough." We mean EXACTLY those amounts! So forget about using a measuring cup or even eyeballing it—you need a food scale!

We've worked hard to make sure that all recipes listed are approved for the plan.

The recipes on this site are intended for those on plan; however, they can easily be adapted to a low-carb or keto lifestyle. If you are following a ketogenic or low-calorie diet, you can enjoy many recipes found here to help keep you on track for your weight loss efforts.
