Lean and Green Recipes don’t have to be boring. Try out one of these recipes to add some fun and flavor to your next meal.
While most start eating healthy for their New Year’s Resolution, there’s never a wrong time to work on eating more healthily.
A popular diet right now is Optavia which includes purchasing their snacks as well as a “lean and green meal” every day. The basics of “lean and green recipes” include five to seven ounces of high-protein meat alongside two to three servings of non-starchy greens. In the diet, you also have room for one to two servings of healthy fats. Usually, this is where your extra flavor and seasonings come in.
You can see more about the full rules of lean and green HERE.
While there are also many other options for a healthy diet, these meals would be healthy for almost any diet you want to follow. All of the lean and green recipes are high in protein and usually low in carbs, calories, and sugar.
Please note: I am not a physician nor do I have any stake in the Optavia company or any of its competitors. This post is to share the information I have gathered for myself and my family regarding lean and green meals as well as what I have learned when trying to cook these meals.

I just love your lean and green recipes, I’ve saved a lot already in my cooking list 🙂
These all look so delicious! I love these because they’re great meals even if you’re not following Lean and Green. Some eating plans are so weirdly specialized that you really can’t enjoy the recipes unless you’re following the plan.
We’ll definitely be taking some of the green recipes on board this month as we navigate Veganuary. I especially love the idea of the lemon pepper asparagus.
These sound like fun recipes to try. The pesto tofu sounds very interesting, as well as the greens recipes.
Nnniiiccceeee…I am sssoooo in for air-fryer chicken breast! I can never have enough of this lean goodie!
I agree it doesn’t have to be boring. It’s nice to have many options to try. I’m a person who loves to try new recipes.
This is exactly what I was looking for. Balanced daily meals between lean meat and vegetables is the way to go.

Thanks for reminding me that I have to try and use the air fryer that I got for a Xmas gift last year!
