The Game Changer

I’m a bit embarrassed to admit it, but I am sort of in a creative food funk.  I guess I got lazy.  Here’s why…

When I started this blog, I often asked my clients if they made any of the recipes I posted.  Very few people made them.  Most people didn’t have time.  After a long day of work, traffic, tending to the kids, etc. the last thing anyone wanted to do was cook!  Even though the recipes I share are easy, it was still hard for people to take the time to make them.  l also discovered that people get bored eating plain food (duh!) and that many people don’t know how to make healthy food taste great.

These are huge barriers to success on any healthy eating plan.

So I decided to find a solution.  Around the same time, an elementary school classmate of mine approached me to create a line of dry rubs for his website.  We hadn’t seen each other in almost 30 years, and the timing was perfect!

I introduce to you the game changer: aloha rubs.Aloha Group Pic4

And you can blame them for why my recipes have slowed down.  After months of testing and modifying the spice blends to come out just right, I still eat these all the time.  I have very little incentive right now to make anything else because they are so good (if I do say so myself) and easy.

There are 4 different spice blends: Cajun, Chimichurri, Chile-Cocoa, and Jerk.  I hope I can help you enjoy healthy eating because I know it is possible.  Coming soon, I will share some of the ways I have used Aloha Rubs to spice up my life!  But until then,  if you try Aloha Rubs, it’s simple.  All you have to do is come home at the end of your day, season the protein of your choice, and throw it on the grill or in the oven.  It’s as simple and quick as that.

Cajun, Chimichurri, and Jerk are all Phase 1, 2, 3, and 4 appropriate.

Chile-Cocoa is for Phase 4 only.

  1. Speaking of the go-to spice, Chimichurri on shrimp is quick and awesome.

  2. I just wanted you to know that I think your IP recipes are some of the best on the web. My wife is on the diet, but I do all the cooking. And I am a foodie, who is NOT on the diet. I certainly do resort to my go-to seasoning mixes when time is short, but I’d really rather make from scratch. So, thanks a bunch for your blog!

    • Wow, Tony! Thanks so much! Sounds like you and your wife have a good thing going– a foodie and healthy. It’s feedback like this that keeps me motivated to keep sharing. I have a few new recipes almost ready to go, so look out for them. Thanks again! So glad someone out there actually ENJOYS to eat the way I do. 😉

  3. I start the program Monday and was a bit worried that I’d never eat good tasting food again. Reading the recipes you’ve created has inspired me to a whole other level. I’m already committed to this program, but you’ve made it a lot easier — and I haven’t even tried one of the recipes yet. Can’t wait to get started now! THANK YOU!!

    • Hi Rebecca,
      Congrats on starting IP! I’m so glad you’ve found the blog and that it has given you hope and inspiration. That has been my goal all along, so thank you so much for sharing that with me. I think it’s all about shifting our mindset on how we view food. If you ever need a little cheerleading from the sidelines, feel free to reach out to me here!

  4. […] mentioned in my last post that I have started to take the easy way out when it comes to my cooking.  But taking the easy way out doesn’t have to mean bland and […]

  5. This looks really yummy and I can eat it even with all my food allergies. Thanks for sharing. I’ll check back for more recipes.

    • Thanks, Amy! Hopefully I’ll have more soon that will interest you. Even though my recipes are designed for people following my weight loss plan, I always try to make my recipes without some of the major allergens. Somehow I’ve found a way to make that challenge fun for myself instead of daunting.
