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.

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

The recipes on this site are intended for the OPTAVIA 5&1 Plan; however, they can easily be adapted to a low carb or keto lifestyle. If you following a ketogenic diet or low-calorie diet you can enjoy many of the recipes found here to help keep you on track for your weight loss efforts.

Lean & Green Philly Cheesesteak Peppers Ingredients

  • 4 medium Green Bell Peppers
  • 1/3 cup Yellow Onion
  • 2 small Garlic Cloves
  • 1/4 cup Low Sodium Beef Broth
  • 6 oz Baby Bella Mushrooms
  • 1 lbs Deli Roast Beef
  • 4 tbsp Low-Fat Cream Cheese
  • 4, 1 oz Provolone Cheese

Lean & Green Philly Cheesesteak Peppers Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Slice peppers in half lengthwise, remove ribs and seeds and set aside.
  3. In a large skillet, sauté the onions and garlic in broth over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes, or until onions are translucent. Add the mushrooms, and continue to cook until mushrooms are tender.
  4. Mix in the roast beef and heat through, about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove skillet from heat, and stir in cream cheese.
  5. Line the inside of each bell pepper with a quarter slice of cheese. Next, fill each pepper with an eighth of the roast beef mixture, then top with the another quarter slice of cheese. Repeat for remaining bell pepper halves. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until peppers are tender and cheese on top is melted and bubbly.

The difficulty of eating healthy at my house is finding recipes the kids will eat also. This is definitely one of them and will remain in the rotation. I substituted red and orange bell pepper (b/c I can't eat the green) and everyone enjoyed this one! My 12 yr old even added it to her all time favorite dishes list. I didn't know I liked roast beef until I tried this! It was quick and easy to make and soooo good!
