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, OPTAVIA Coach 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 OPTAVIA optimal weight 5 in 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.

I love your website but I cook for one person. It would be so awesome if you had a calculation option for portion size. It's difficult to break down your recipes. Thank you so much.
