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 Maple Turkey Sausage Patties with Spaghetti Squash Hash Browns Instructions

  1. Prepare the spaghetti squash. Cut the squash in half, and remove seeds and stringy pulp.
  2. Place each spaghetti squash half face down in a micro-wave safe baking dish, and fill dish with about 1 inch of water. Microwave on high for 10 to 15 minutes, until middle is tender and pulls apart easily.
  3. While spaghetti squash is cooking prepare the turkey sausage patties. Combine all seasonings in a bowl. Mix seasonings and syrup into ground turkey with hands. Form turkey mixture into patties, and cook in skillet with olive oil, until cooked through and lightly browned.
  4. Scrape flesh of spaghetti squash with a fork to create spaghetti-like strands, and remove strands from the skin.
  5. Allow squash to cool, and then squeeze the squash strands in your hands a few times over the sink to release excess water.
  6. Mix together in a large bowl the drained squash strands, scallions, garlic powder, eggs, salt (optional), and pepper.
  7. Cook squash mixture in a large skillet with olive oil over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, for 10 to 15 minutes, until golden brown.
  8. Immediately top with the cheddar cheese, and serve with maple turkey sausage patties.
