About Chris Sloan

Chris Sloan 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 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 5 and 1 recipes, so I was so inspired to build this website to help compile some of what I felt are the best recipes around. I'm happy to share it with you as well!

For those new to the plan, weighing your food is an integral part of the program; it's one of the critical elements. If you want to be successful, you need to ensure that each meal has been weighed according 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 recipes listed are approved for the plan.

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

Lean & Green Spinach & Pepper Jack Breakfast Burrito Ingredients

  • 2 medium Eggs
  • 4 medium Egg Whites
  • 2 tbsp Whole Flax Seeds
  • 3 dash Light Cooking Spray
  • 4 oz Reduced-Fat Pepper Jack Cheese Shredded
  • 2 cup Baby Spinach Chopped
  • 1 cup Tomatoes Diced
  • 1/2 cup Green Bell Peppers Diced
  • 1 medium Jalapeno Peppers Diced
  • 1 tbsp Red Onion Chopped
  • 1 tsp Garlic Cloves Minced
  • 2 tsp Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/8 tsp Salt (optional)*
  • 1/8 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/4 cup Fresh Cilantro Chopped

Lean & Green Spinach & Pepper Jack Breakfast Burrito Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the tortilla. (2 eggs, 4 egg whites & 2 tbsp whole flax seeds)
  2. Heat a small skillet over medium high heat, and lightly grease with cooking spray. Pour half of the egg mixture into the skillet, and swirl to evenly distribute the eggs on the surface, forming a thin, tortilla- or crepe-like shape. Cook for a couple of minutes until the edges and bottom of the tortilla are firm. Tilt the skillet from side to side to make sure eggs are no longer runny. Gently loosen the tortilla from the surface with a spatula, and carefully flip. Continue to cook until eggs are fully set. Repeat with the other half of the tortilla mixture. Set tortillas aside when finished.
  3. Lightly grease the same skillet, and sauté the spinach 2 to 3 minutes, or until wilted, over low to medium high heat. When done, remove from heat and set aside.
  4. Combine all of the salsa ingredients in a medium-sized mixing bowl. (diced tomatoes, bell pepper, jalapenos, red onion, garlic, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper & cilantro)
  5. Place tortilla on a large plate. Add half of the spinach, cheese, and salsa to the middle, and then roll into a burrito. Serve immediately.
