Planning meals is so important to staying on track with your weight loss goals, and crockpot meals can be very helpful. You can even program or turn your crockpot on before bed to have lunch already prepared the next morning. Summer peppers are in now and fajitas are a flavorful way to incorporate them into your menu. Using lettuce instead of tortillas as a wrap, you can still enjoy Mexican flavors without compromising your waistline. Eating the fajitas with a fork is also a perfect option, especially if you are taking leftovers to work. This recipe makes 8 servings. Each meal includes one serving of protein and two servings of vegetables (one cup cooked). If you include avocado or black olives, you can cover your fat, as well.

  • I can’t begin to tell you how much appreciation I have for the Tanzar’s and this program. Truly a life changing decision when I invested in this program. Genesis is a very apt title but it’s also like a rebirth. I’m on my second life which is healthy, happy and pain free. I lost 85 lbs in 4 months, maybe less time. That is about 15 lbs more than my goal. So excited about the rest of my life!
