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 Baked Cod with Tomatoes & Feta Instructions

  3. Add the tomatoes and oregano, and simmer gently for 20 minutes, or until tomatoes reduce and thicken.
  4. While tomatoes are cooking, slice the zucchinis lengthwise on a mandolin to make 1/8-inch thick slices; set aside.
  5. When tomatoes are done, remove from heat and stir in green part of scallions.
  6. Arrange the sliced zucchini in an oven proof casserole dish, and place cod on top. Season cod with salt and a 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and drizzle with remaining olive oil.

According to OPTAVIA, 1 teaspoon of olive oil is considered a healthy fat serving. This recipe calls for 2 1/2 tablespoons which is about 7 1/2 teaspoons. Is this a mistake?

The recipe is called Baked Cod with Tomatoes & Feta Cheese, but the listed ingredient is Reduced-Fat Cheddar Cheese not Feta.  Which is correct?
