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 new to OPTAVAIA, weighing your food is an important part of the OPTAVIA 5 & 1 program; in fact, it's one of the key elements. If you want to be successful, you need to make sure that each meal has been weighed exactly to the guidelines. And we're not talking about "close enough." We mean EXACTLY those amounts! So forget about using a measuring cup or even eyeballing it—you need a food scale!

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 Pork Tacos (Tostadas) Ingredients

  • 3 oz Avocado Diced
  • ¼ tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 cup Cilantro Chopped
  • 8 cup Romaine Lettuce Chopped
  • 12 oz Pork Tenderloin Sliced
  • 8 oz Reduced Fat Cheddar Cheese
  • ¼ tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 tbsp Low Sodium Taco Seasoning
  • 2 cup Tomatoes Diced

Lean & Green Pork Tacos (Tostadas) Instructions

  1. To make taco shells:
    Divide cheese into 8, (1-ounce) portions.
  2. Turn on the broiler in an oven or toaster oven.
  3. On one side of a sheet pan lined with parchment paper, spread one portion of cheese into a 6-inch circle; repeat to make a second, 6-inch circle on the opposite side.
  4. Turn on the broiler in an oven or toaster oven.
  5. Broil until crisp about 5 to 7 minutes.
  6. Suspend a wooden spoon or measuring stick over 2 cans or boxes. Drape a piece of foil over top, pressing lightly to form a taco shell shape.
  7. With a spatula or knife, carefully lift each cheese circle and drape over foil to form taco shells. Allow a few minutes to harden.
  8. Repeat with remaining cheese portions.
  9. To make pork filling:
    Heat a non-stick pan over high heat. Coat with non-stick spray, and add pork and taco seasoning. Allow pork to brown on one side before stirring. Sauté pork and adjust seasoning to taste with salt and pepper.
  10. For one portion, top 2 taco shells with 2 cups lettuce, ¼ cup cilantro, 3 ounces pork, ¾ ounce avocado, and ½ cup tomatoes.
  11. To make tostadas instead of taco shells, skip steps 2 and 6.
