Optavia is a diet owned by Medifast, a company that sells meal replacements for weight loss. Both of these are similar to the Keto diet in that they are low-carb. Optavia is a more structured plan in which you're mentored by an Optavia "health coach" who guides you and encourages you along the way.
A Lean & Green meal is comprised of 5 to 7 ounces of cooked lean protein, three servings of non-starchy vegetables, and up to two servings of healthy fats (depending on your protein choice). The idea is to limit the carbs you eat and capitalize on lean protein and veggies.
If you're on the Optimal Weight 5 and 1 plan, you're probably looking for lots of lean and green recipes. Here are some ideas for delicious-sounding recipes with lots of flavor so you can jump-start your plan. It could also help you build up a recipe book filled with nutrient-rich meals:
