Summer is in full swing which means I am always looking for ways to save time while still making healthy choices! If you are in the same boat, let me introduce you to my delicious secret weapon to keep me on track all day, Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt is so easy, perfect for a hot summer day and can be used with anything from strawberries to a mayo replacement for your chicken, tuna or egg salads. If that isn’t already enticing enough I forgot to mention Greek yogurt in all its creamy goodness carries 12 grams of protein in every 4 ounces to help keep you full, satisfied and on that happy trail of health, happiness and weight loss.

Metabolic More, MRC's NEW weight loss program, offers more of everything, but by far one of the best new choices in avocado. I love guacamole; in fact I am almost obsessed with it. The fact that avocado is loaded with heart healthy fats are just an added bonus. I adore the creamy taste, the smooth texture and incredible versatility of the avocado. This guacamole recipe is simple and easy. It takes just minutes to prepare and can be used as a dip, spread on bread, or wrapped in a breakfast burrito.

Missing your Mexican food? No need, we have tons of ideas for adding a spicy kick to your meals; everything from fish tacos to tostadas. This recipe is devoted to one our favorites at MRC, the tostada. Start with a 50 calories corn tortilla, and where you go from there is up to you. You can top your tostada with ground beef or turkey or shredded chicken, then add diced veggies, roasted veggies, fresh salsa, or anything else you can dream up.

Spaghetti squash is one of our favorites in the MRC kitchen because it's delicious, healthy, and a perfect pasta swap. This versatile squash is also great served with a bit of garlic, olive oil and parmesan cheese...but today we eat Italian!
