Chutney Chicken

This dish balances a sweet and sour topping with the savory taste of chicken.  Rather than your typical side dish of white rice, pair this with a green vegetable or salad for a full color palate.

Nut Blend

I love this nut blend recipe! This was put together to provide the best qualities of each nut for a more complete nut blend. Omega-3's, vitamins and minerals. Sometimes its tough to find all of the nuts unsalted and uncooked however, check Trader Joe's or Whole Foods. Have a nut blend (1/3 cup) each day to help get your fat intake up which will support tissue repair among many other things!

Turkey Chili

This is definitely a Core Diet favorite!  Packed with nutrients and high protein, it's the perfect meal on those cold winter days.  Make a batch or tow and freeze for a later date!

Macadamia Crusted Sea Bass with Thai Red Curry Sauce

This dish will melt in your mouth!  While it takes some prep time, you will not be disappointed!  Great Core Dish to serve for company or that special occasion.


Serve with chopped vegetables, as dip with grilled chicken, or with pita chips in post-workout window.

Chicken Fajitas

This Core Diet alternative to the famous fajitas is much healthier with just a few adjustments.  Add more flavor via spices, use low carb wraps, less oil and high quality lean protein and this meal is perfect for when it seems your refrigerator is empty.  Keep low carb wraps, peppers and chicken in the freezer and you'll also have a go-to meal!  And of course you can substitute with any vegetables!   Use those that are on their last day... never waste! 


Wonderful light fish perfect for a summer dish!  Pair with a salad such as arugla.

Orange Curry Grilled Turkey Tenderloins

The love this dish!  Other than the time needed to marinate, its quick and easy and a nice change to your typical turkey dishes. 

Quinoa with Orange, Cranberries and Goat Cheese

Makes about five 1 cup servings.  

Spinach Salad with Spiced Shrimp and Mango

This is a great option for a dinner or lunch salad.  Split the recipe in half and it's a whole meal, looking for a smaller salad split the recipe by 4. 

Grilled Chili-Lime Chicken with Strawberry-Avocado Salsa

Grilled chicken is always a great staple lean protein, but if you like to add salsa to you dishes, then try this!  Perfect combination of flavors plus a bonus of omega-3s (avocado)! 

Baked Sweet Potato Chips

This is the easiest way I know of to make sweet potato!  Its also one of the best tasting in my opinion.  They end up being fry like snack to add to any meal!

Sweet Potato Salad

This salad can be a meal on it's own!  Perfect substitute for the traditional high calorie, low nutrient dense potato salad.  Sweet potatoes are low glycemic so don't worry if you are not in post workout window!  

Salmon with Citrus Sauce

I love the flavor of mustard and salmon!  This recipe has the added bonus of the citrus flavor.  For best results, I recommend buying Wild Alaskan Salmon - you won't be disappointed! 

Sauteed Shrimp on Warm Black Bean Salad

Not sure what to do with those cans of black beans sitting in your cupboard?  This is a great option for lunch or even as a side dish for dinner (smaller portion).  This is a fast recipe to prepare and cook! 

Black Bean and Sweet Potato Soup

A hearty winter soup, the sweet potatoes contrast nicely with the tang of the yogurt and the tartness of the lime. Aniseed provides a hint of licorice flavor, but can be omitted or replaced with fennel seed or 1 star anise pod (just discard the star anise before blending).
