I am featured as a “Weight Loss All-Star” in the special commemorative edition of PEOPLE Magazine’s The Ultimate Diet Guide on pages 4 and 9.  The Guide reveals some of the nutrition and exercise tips that helped me lose 150lbs and keep it off for over a decade.  Plus, I share how weight loss inspired me to become a successful health & wellness consultant and author of Half My Size How I Ate to Lose 150lbs.

Also check me out in the April issue of Glamour Magazine where I participated as one of the faces of women that overcame emotional eating.

A merger of two things I love: Coffee and BBQ!!!

Most pre-packaged BBQ sauces are LOADED with sugar, corn syrup and preservatives that sound like they belong on Akeelah and The Bee!

As an alternative, I created this yummy recipe. This recipe could be used for baking or grilling.

Also feel free to use for shrimp as well!

This is Sunday Dinner Winner!!!

Look for ready-made tomato/pasta sauces in the grocery store that are refrigerated. The jarred pasta sauces that have a shelf life until the year 3012 are loaded with sodium and preservatives.

Again I add ground flaxseed to all of my meatball/meatloaf style recipes because it helps with binding and aids in digestion. Flaxseed is PACKED with fiber and is a healthier alternative to breadcrumbs!

I actually leave the zucchini noodles raw and serve at room temp. Cooking them can make them a little slimy and less spaghetti noodle-like.

I often use the pre-shredded cabbage/cole slaw as a replacement for rice or rice noodles when making stir fry with chicken or shrimp. (Cabbage is much, much less starchy compared to rice noodles and rice.)

The shredded cabbage/cole slow is located in the bagged salad section of the grocery store.

Feel free to add any seasonings or proteins you like. I have made this dish adding broccoli, salmon, basil, lemon grass and/or just one if Mrs. Dash’s seasonings. #carolinejhingoryrecipes

Any veggies that you have hanging around in the fridge are great for kabobs!!! It provides you with a bit of variety and of course there’s always something magical about eating food from a stick!

I used yellow bell peppers, Brussels sprouts, red onions and shrimp!!

Thanks to @CostcoWholesale and @Walmart ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Type “VEGETABLE SPIRALIZER” into Google and it will come up with numerous places to purchase the gadget used in this video!!!

Thanks to my vegetable spiralizer, I never EVER miss having pasta.

I pulled pieces of chicken from a pre-cooked grocery store rotisserie chicken for this dish.

Also, the large shrimp used were pre-cooked. Thanks @CostcoWholesale @Walmart and @WholeFoodsMarket

The picture on the left was taken at Macfarland Middle School where Ms. Jackson-Nesmith was my 8th grade home room teacher.

I appear to be “darker” perhaps because I was pre-diabetic which can cause skin darkening. Also the photo was taken with one of those crappy disposable cameras that you take to CVS to get the photos developed.

{VIDEO} Salmon Cake Pops by #CarolineJhingoryRecipes

I eat salmon quite often. Whenever I get tired of having salmon in filet form, I just take the leftovers and make salmon pops/meatballs.

Makes ya feel like you’re getting a bit of variety. Add any additional vegetables like green peppers, chopped kale or red bell peppers.

As a reminder, I buy my salmon in bulk from @CostcoWholesale and frozen. Saves money and prevents the salmon from spoiling before you get a chance to cook/eat it.

Randomness, I despise meatloaf topped with that tomato paste “frosting.”

As an alternative, I incorporate tomatoes by adding the ready-made pico de gallo that’s typically located in the grocery store bagged salad or fresh veggie aisles.

Adding turkey Italian sausage to regular ground turkey makes it more flavorful and moist.
Thanks @Walmart and @wholefoodsmarket for these ingredients;-)

a better view…{VIDEO} Zucchini Pepperoni Pizza #CarolineJhingoryRecipes

In Uncategorized On April 7, 2014 0 Comments

Some of you may know me from the cauliflower pizza crust recipe I shared on The @Dr_Oz Show. However zucchini is much more tasty (in my opinion.)

I don’t do this recipe with cheese for myself because when I entered by 30s, I became lactose intolerant.

Also keep in mind that even though cheese is considered a “low-carb” food it can create speed-bumps in your weight loss. Go slow with the cheese and have it once in awhile.⭐️

Ingredients
Raw Zucchini
1/2 cup of liquid egg whites
1 cup of almond flour
Toppings of choice (tomato sauce, cheese, turkey pepperoni, etc)
Pizza baking sheet
Dried oregano and basil seasoning

{VIDEO} SIMPLE Grilled Salmon & Asparagus aka My Dinner Most Nights #CarolineJhingoryRecipes

In Uncategorized On April 7, 2014 0 Comments

This is my dinner most nights of the week.

Three ingredients

(1) Costco WholeSale Kirkland Salmon
(2) Mrs. Dash Garlic & Herb {Purple Top}
(3) Asparagus (also from Costco)

Honestly, my weight loss success is attributed to eating a lot of the same foods. Having healthy go-to meals makes things less complicated…life is complicated enough.

Randomness, I have an allergic reaction to wild salmon versus Atlantic. When I asked my allergist why, he said one possibility is that our waterways are filthy
