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 Tropical Chicken Medley Ingredients

  • 2 lbs Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast Sliced
  • 3 cup Broccoli Chopped
  • 11/2 cup Red Bell Peppers Chopped
  • 11/2 cup Yellow Bell Pepper Chopped
  • 1/2 cup Light Lime Vinaigrette Dressing
  • 2 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1 tsp Garlic and Herb Seasoning Blend
  • 1/2 oz Pine Nuts

Lean & Green Tropical Chicken Medley Instructions

  1. Coat chicken breast (sliced into strips) with salad dressing. Sprinkle seasoning blend and onion powder on chicken strips. Let the strips marinate for at least 30 minutes. (1 to 2 hours preferred)
  2. While chicken is marinating, saute peppers and broccoli in a large, lightly-coated saute pan until al dente (tender-crisp). When cooking peppers, frequently add a little water so peppers do not burn. Set sauteed peppers and broccoli aside.
  3. Add chicken to a pan, and cook until no longer pink.
  4. Meanwhile, place pine nuts on a tray in (Toaster Oven or Oven) and toast until brown.
  5. When chicken is done, add peppers, broccoli, and pine nuts, and serve immediately.

This looks amazing! I am new to Optavia. Just started my third week. How much is a serving size?

It really is very confusion and frustrating that the recipes don't seem to match the images. I see in this image what looks to be mushrooms and possibly beef...neither of which is in the recipe. I appreciate the effort you must put into these recipes, but it's frustrating (especially to a newbie) to see an image, click & the recipe doesn't match. I will still try it because it sounds delicious. Peace :)
