Still not sure? Here is what some of our current members have to say about the plans.

  • “I just want to say that I absolutely love your website and your meal plans.. They are very well done and you cannot beat the price. In the past I have subscribed to Fresh 20 and Emeals. Yours are far better, first and foremost because you have breakfast, lunch, and supper and because I can switch between meals. Please don’t change. I love the low carb meals (that is my resolution, to eat less carbs and sweets).”
  • “Got my husband to go with me to shop for the week! Love the shopping lists and choices for 2 or 4 and low carb options!!! I can’t wait to get started! I think my whole family will benefit from this! I also think this is the first time I have ever gone to the grocery store and finished without purchasing 1 extra thing or something processed!!! THANKS!!”
  • “Just wanted to say that I am loving the meal plans so far. We already saved more on groceries than the yearly plan cost! And my family is loving the food so far. The chicken parm with spaghetti squash is our new favorite! My husband didn’t even notice it was squash instead of pasta until he was halfway done.”
  • “I absolutely love printing the shopping list, checking my fridge and pantry and going to the store knowing I don’t have to go again for a week. I am loving the recipes. This has been such a time saver. I look forward to the new plan each week. Thanks for taking away the part I disliked the most about cooking — figuring out what to cook. Those Korean beef tacos were amazing!!”

Baked Veggie Egg Rolls

Baked Veggie Egg Rolls

Looking for a way to make an at home Asian meal really feel like take out? Why not add egg rolls to the mix? Since egg rolls are traditionally deep fried and sometimes packed with some questionable or unidentifiable ingredients, I have started making my own baked, veggie packed egg rolls at home. Not only do they taste delicious, but they are packed with vegetables and perfect for getting any non-vegetable eating family members to dig in. You can make them with any vegetable combination you like and even switch up the sauce to truly make them your own. This version is fairly traditional using cabbage, carrots, and mushrooms; but any veggie combination will work. Oh and did I mention they are under 100 calories and only 1 PointsPlus® per roll!!

Crispy Tofu with Salt and Pepper

Crispy Tofu with Salt and Pepper

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Nasoya. All opinions are 100% mine.

One of the most common questions I hear about using tofu is how to make sure it gets that nice crispy and crunchy outside that only seems to be achieved in restaurants. Many of us (myself included until I learned this trick!) find that every time we attempt to make tofu, we end up with soft, unappetizing tofu that just doesn’t make the cut. We eat it because we are looking for a meat substitute or know its healthy, but it isn’t something we crave or desire, and definitely isn’t something we could every serve to any meat loving friends. Well this trick for cooking tofu will change things.

First up, buy the right tofu. Look for extra firm tofu that is packed in water and fresh. Look for a late expiration date and make sure it smells and looks fresh when you open it.

Next, cut the tofu into smaller pieces. This creates more surfaces to crisp up. I usually go with cubes, sticks, or large “steak” rectangles, usually no more than about ¼ inch thick for sticks/rectangle or ½ inch wide for squares.

Third – press! This is the most important step for crispy tofu. You can use a fancy tofu press, but all you really need is a dry towel and something heavy. First, dry the tofu on both sides with the towel, getting it nice and dry. Then wrap it in the towel and place something heavy on top. Let it sit for 10 minutes. Dry it one more time and then you are ready to go.

The last step –pan frying. Add around 1.5 tbsp. of oil to a large skillet over medium high or high heat. Once the oil is nice and hot, add the tofu in one single layer, giving the tofu some room. Cook for 3-5 minutes per side until it becomes nice and crispy. Flip and cook the other side. If you need to, do this in batches to give the tofu lots of room. Crowding the pan will result in softer tofu.

That’s it! From there you can add your favorite sauce to add flavor. You can also marinate the tofu between step 2 and 3 if you want to add flavor.

Ready to try it? Here is one of my favorite simple recipes for Crispy Salt and Pepper Tofu.

Sunday Slow Cooker: Salsa Verde Chicken

Sunday Slow Cooker:  Salsa Verde Chicken

Salsa verde chicken is probably the first dish I ever made in a slow cooker. It really couldn’t be easier – a jar of salsa, some chicken, and 4 hours later a delicious, healthy meal that tastes better than you could ever imagine a recipe with just two ingredients could taste. However, over time, I have started to want more from my salsa chicken. So today I wanted to share some quick ways to doctor up traditional salsa chicken.

First, let’s start with the chicken. Although all chicken breast would work and has lower calories, I like a combination of breasts and thighs to keep everything nice and moist. A lean beef roast or pork tenderloin is also delicious. Next is the salsa. This recipe gives you three options for salsa – a simple jar, a doctored up store-bought salsa, or the most labor intensive but best tasting – the homemade version. Lastly, let’s consider making it creamy and even cheesy. Salsa chicken can be totally transformed by adding some reduced fat cream cheese or sour cream. De-lic-ious! Any of these would work with either red or green salsa.

Apple Pie Smoothie

Apple Pie Smoothie

Apple pie in a glass…count me in! OK so maybe it’s not exactly apple pie in a glass, but it’s a darn delicious smoothie that’s packed with protein and will keep you full all morning.

One quick tip, since apples and older blenders aren’t really friends, microwave the apple for 2 minutes first to soften it up. This will help everything come together so the smoothie has the right texture and isn’t gritty or chunky. Worried about it being cold? Just throw in a couple of ice cubes.

Quinoa Fried Rice

Quinoa Fried Rice

Fried rice is a mainstay in our house. I find myself making it almost weekly with leftover brown rice and cauliflower rice, throwing in whatever veggies I have around and adjusting the spices to match the meal. This week I decided to whip up a batch using leftover rainbow quinoa and loved the result. The quinoa adds a great nuttiness to the dish and holds up well with the spices. It also makes delicious leftovers. My perfect favorite is wrapping it up with lots of veggies in a low carb wrap or tossing it into a big salad. You can also add chicken, shrimp, pork, or beef to make a complete meal.
