Trying to lose weight?

We invite you to check out one of our Smart Loss Seminars to learn all about Carb-Cycling! The basic idea is that you alternate between high-carb days and low-carb days in order to rev up your metabolism. You will get a link to some great software which will help you plan your meals and incorporates recipes like the one below!

Serves 2 

2 salmon filets (4-6 oz each, your protein serving should be about the size of your palm) 
1/2 tablespoon olive oil 
2 tablespoons low-sodium chicken broth 
2 teaspoons lemon juice (or use fresh squeezed lemon) 
1/2 tablespoon butter 
Salt and pepper to taste 

SIDE DISH: Steamed green beans (unlimited veggies!) 

Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat. 
Add filets to the pan, adding salt and pepper as desired. Cook on both sides until done. Remove from pan and keep warm by covering lightly with foil. 
Add chicken broth to the pan and with a whisk, stir up brown bits in pan. Allow the mixture to reduce slightly. 
Whisk in lemon juice and mix well. 
Remove pan from the heat and whisk in butter. 
Spoon the lemon sauce over the seared fish and serve immediately with a side of steamed green beans.

If it’s a High Carb Day for you or you have family members who are NOT eating low carb: Serve over steamed brown rice (remember a serving of smart carbs is the size of your fist).
