Oatmeal Pancakes With Cinnamon Apples
Banish the Bisquick! Oats and wheat flour give these pancakes a fiber and protein boost, helping stabilize your blood sugar levels as your body absorbs the rush of carbs that comes with a stack of flapjacks.

Black Bean Omelet

Takeout-Level Chicken Fried Rice
Our recipe turns fried rice on its head, relying on a ton of fresh vegetables, considerably less rice, and a bit of oil for crisping it up.
“Cheeseburger” may not seem like a term that should be in a list of healthy recipes for weight loss, but thanks to this keto casserole, it is. If you grew up loving the taste of Hamburger Helper, you’ll enjoy this keto cheeseburger casserole that can feed a crowd. Made with ground beef, spices, no-sugar added marinara, heavy cream, and shredded cheese, this crave-worthy casserole is sure to become your go-to keto classic.
Air Fryer Breaded Pork Chops
How do you make crispy breaded pork chops in a health-conscious way? Using an air fryer, of course! It will cut down on prep and cooking time as well as a substantial amount of calories and fat. Because the pork chop isn’t fried in oil, it doesn’t feel heavy and fatty like the one you’re frying in pan.
