Keep them coming, you two are inspirational

diona says:

Can I make this recipe with boneless skinless chicken thighs? And is this a good thing to make on a low carb day? And can I put broccoli or asparagus with it?

admin says:

You’d have to experiment!

Stephanie says:

Made this tonight for dinner! AMAZING! The only thing I added was I sprinkled seasoned bread crumbs on top. Thanks!

Nanci says:

I made this tonight it was great…you need to post more recipes

crystal says:

Just had it for dinner. So yummy. My hubby even liked it….he ate 2 portions!

Mari Patrick says:

I love your show. It has helped me, I was 425 4 years ago, now I am 260 and need to loose 110 more but I can into a bump in the road because of my illness. Please help!!!!! Love Mari

Cora says:

This looks so good and easy!I want to try this, but my 2yr old is allergic to Greek yogurt,but can eat regular yogurt would it still work out if I swapped?

admin says:

Possibly. It will have less protein.

Karen says:

Sounds wonderful. Will definately make this one for the family!

Tracey says:

going to try this tomorrow night, thank you. :-)

Shawnda says:

Trying this tonight with pork chops. It smells soooooo good!

Diana says:

There is just my mom and I for dinner, how could I minimize the recipe?

admin says:

Maybe cut in half. The leftovers are excellent!

Nolly says:

It sounds very nice and easy.
But what are you eating with it?
Vegetables or something else.

admin says:

you could add any kind of sidedish with it.

Gerri says:

What would be the modifications for using frozen chicken?

admin says:

Just defrost your chicken first. Then cook as normal.

Melissa says:

What do you have along with the chicken?

Admin1 says:

Add your favorite veggies :)

Carol says:

Is there any recipes that are good for you that do not have yogurt or pea’s or peanuts as I am allergic to all of them… :(

Stacy says:

How does this recipe fit into carb cycling? Low carb day, high carb day, reward day…?

emily says:

Amanda says:

This is dang tasty. I loved it! I didn’t have greek yogurt (I am not really a fan of it anyway) so I used a little mayo and sour cream. Awesome. I may try it nest time with cottage cheese and see if it turns out the same.. Thanks !!

Kim says:

Hi, really enjoy your website and just wondering which protein shakes are safe while pregnant? Thank you

admin says:

Most any shake should be. Just remember that you shouldn’t be “living” off of shakes only, they should be part of your meal routine, not your only meals. some shakes are meal replacements and others are meal supplements (still need other calories with it to make it a “meal) so read your labels and as always, check with your doctor.

Jackie Lund says:

Saving this recipe.

Jenn Delano says:

My husband and I started the Classic Carb Cycling this week, after being a fan of Chris’s show since it started. We made this chicken dish the other night and it was amazing! Thanks for sharing all of your tasty recipes!

Melissa Haley says:

Looks amazing. I will have to make this for my husband and I.

Tonya says:

Cant not wait to try this!!!

gina kish says:

Do you cover the chicken or leave open when baking it?

Admin1 says:

I leave it uncovered. :)

Heather Moody says:

Heidi, I follow you on facebook and saw you post this. I am going to be making it tonight for dinner, and I have to ask. Do you have a cookbook??? If you mentioned that somewhere, I’ve missed it. I think you should put out a cookbook! I’d buy it.

Bonnie says:

I think it would be awesome, if you both video taped every morsel of food you ate for an entire week! From a guys perspective, and a girls! That would be awesome!

Jenn says:

I’ve been doing this for years, except instead of yogurt, I use a much smaller amount of Hellman’s mayonnaise. Just a thin smear across the top works. Instead of the seasonings, I use a bit of seasoning. Italian, jerk, bbq, whatever sounds good at the moment.

Mary Miller says:

I made this earlier this week……it was SOOOO good! The only thing for me was that it was too salty….next time I’ll just leave it out or cut it back.

Jens says:

Why non-fat instead of 2%, isnt non-fat higher in sugar?

Wendy says:

Love the show. Love the book. Love living healthy and loosing 28lbs LOVE crushing my goals!!! Lastly, Love the motivation you all spread. Cheers (with water of course) to a healthier nation!!!

Tina Francis says:

Love this dish! Had it last night for Dinner and am going to have the leftovers tonight :)

Shelley says:

What is a healthy way to put a little weight on a child that isnt gaining and the doctor says she needs to put on some weight?

admin says:

I’d work with your doctor on that, but if you increase her foods, do healthy foods that increase her caloric intake. She’d need to eat more calories than what she is burning, but you want healthy foods, not just junk food. See what your doctor recommends for increasing her caloric intake.

Thanks Chris

tami winn says:

The food and family. The food so I can eat healthy. The family so I can have more fun with my family.

Jeff Allenton says:

Chris and Heidi, thank you so much for all you have done to inspire and teach people to have a healthy lifestyle. Your family is a blessing. I know you get thousands of posts, letters etc. Let me start by saying I have a terminal brain disease and live here in the Phoenix area. I have been over weight since the death of my daughter in 1982. I need some help so that I can be as healthy as I can for my family and myself for as long as i am here. I just started the bod-e drinks this last week as well as verve. My son is a brand partner and we had the pleasure of a brief hello with BK in Scottsdale. I have never asked for any help in my life but I find myself reaching out to you and Heidi. I am a patient at the Muhammad Ali Parkinson’s Center and am doing ok. I have Cerebellar Ataxia with probable Multiple System Atrophy. I wear a leg brace on my right leg at times and use walking sticks. Please contact me if you have time to help. Either way God Bless you and your family. P.S, I am 220 lbs. would like to be around 165 lbs. Thanks again.

paulette brochet says:

I am going to try this delicious recipe.I am printing allbyour recipes and keeping them in a binder. love that they are healthy and easy to use along with Chris’ books that are filled with great recipes.would love to have an autographed copy of his recent book.

Jennifer Baldwin says:

i love they way you work with people. the way you talk to them and not at them

Ali Burge says:

Dear Chris and Hiedi:
I would like to take the time to thank both of you for inspiration you keep giving (not to mention the good recipes that I have tried on my family like the chicken parmesan) For a while now I have loved to watch the show and always wished I had the will power to do this. But time went on and nothing changed. This last spring my sister and I found my father of 66 years had fallen asleep and never woke back up. Though my father was not an overweight man his lifestyle was not a healthy one and that is what ultimately took him away from us. My heart aches for him everyday, but it has made me rethink about everything you were saying. I was only seeing the change in the looks of the person, not the change in the way they live all together. I want to be here for my children as long as the lords lets me but I will not be able to do this without a change. I have started with just a diet change not for me everyone, I am the cook of the house they eat what I eat, The eight year old is the toughest, but we progress my starting weight is 278 lbs and just by changing eating habits in 2 weeks 12 lbs have disappeared. Thank you for being who you are and supportive in all everyone does. Wish me luck for this will be my lifetime.

Pamela says:

Follow – commented – shared and we watch……love you guys and what you represent by helping all these folks. God speed ahead!

Venus Ortega says:

I liked the blog post about National Video Game Day who knew. I was expecially interest in the stats of women who prefer Wii over other systems. I personally think it is because of Wii Fit that can get you started on a fitness program without leaving the house I personally think it is the best and have wanted one for years. The games areso interactive and keep you moving. If any other prgram would have come up with this first we might prefer them but the Wii was first with this.

Mark Warner says:

That chicken dish looks delicious. Looking for recipes to makes things taste better without a lot of extra calories and fat. Also substitutions that are healthy instead of a lot of extra carbs.

Randy D Maddox says:

I was truly inspired by last nites show……was really rooting for Mehrbod and boy howdy did he come thru in the end; and inspiration for all really–we all lose our way and have to fight back and get back up

Kim says:

Just found your blog! Love, love, love it!

I’m having your Garlic Parmesan Chicken tonite! It sounds sooo good.

I’ve got a lot of weight to lose but know I can do it! Thanks for being a part of my journey!

Sharon says:

Love the recipe, thanks for sharing

Dawn says:

Thanks for the recipe. I am defiantly going to use this one.

Linda says:

I really want Chris Powell’s book of my own. Right now, I am borrowing it from the library. I want to highlight the most important information and keep it in handy for the future. I do hope to win a book of my own to help me to lose 50 lb. Thank you!!!

Linda says:

I need someone like Heidi come to my kitchen and show me how to eat properly in order to lose weight. Have you thought of a cooking show “Heidi’s Cooking Show”? That would help thousands of people lose weight. Smile! :)

Linda says:

I love watching Extreme Makeover, I feel if that person can lose weight then I know I can do it. I need to be pushed and keep telling me I can lose 50 lb. on my own. I love Chris and Heidi because they are so friendly and really wants to help people get into a better shape. I hope to meet them someday!!!

Patti Pacer says:

I love how passionate both of you are not just about your own health but also about the health of others.

Kim says:

Your family is truly an inspiration to others. I joined you on facebook and love all the tips.

I have been working at losing weight and find it hard to find different meals

Lissette Ramos says:

Just found your site and I’m so excited to read through everything. My husband and I love Chris’s show and I love that you are a part of it too. Thanks for all your hard work.

Maria Young says:

We made this chicken last night, I am so excited for the recipes as food has to taste good. Thank you both for all you do.

Jen says:

This looks incredible. I can’t wait to try this. Going to the store today to get everything I need. I have yet to get bored with my eating because of the yummy foods you post!! Best part is my whole family will eat them :)

Stephanie says:

Love this recipe, my whole family will love it too. That’s the hard part about me being able to eat healthy…I have to make sure everyone will eat it. Thanks for being here

Cindy Nicholson says:

I follow you on Facebook and Twitter. I truly admire what you and Chris are doing. I am just begining my Carb Cycling journey. Your recieps will make my journey more tasty. Two quick suggestions? 1. Can you identify on the recipe if it’s a high carb or low carb recipe? 2. Is there a button you can add that will let the reader print the recipe? Just a thought.
Thank you for your passion. I wish you and Chris much happiness and success.

Tina Ramsey says:

Great recipe! Thanks for sharing!

Marsha Bashline says:

Just want to congratulatee how you handle your show. You are such a caring, personal trainer. You hurt, when the contestants hurt, you are happy when they are happy. God Bless you and family, and can’t wait to see the next shows.

Sonia Siopa says:

I love this recipe! Thanks! for sharing it. I have been on a journey of my own to lose a lot of weight and having a low metabolism was my biggest struggle. I have done so much better and finally under 200lb. I lost about 45 lbs in a year but am continuing to reach my goal. At the moment I am 160lb but being a 5′ person it is still overweight. I hope to reach an ideal weight goal by the end of this year. :-)

Dorothy Martin says:

Would you ever consider helping a person like me..I will be 59 years old in December. I have been battling weight problems all my life, I have lost and found over 1,000 lbs and so sick of this. I have had the lapband surgery and it did not help. If I stay with 3 protein drinks and 1 meal a day, I did very good but got very bored with that. I did watch the show last night and I’ll start trying again and I have to realize I am worth it but just wished I could get the knowledge to get this weight off and keep it off. I am the lowest I have ever been 213 but would just love to see 140..I just want to look good and feel comfortable in my own skin. I missed your chance to get your book…but would just love the opportunity to hear your opinion on what I can do and how can I get and keep this weight off.

Kathy Ippolito says:

I need Chris Powell’s help please. I am 57, out of work 4 years, and weigh appx 300 pounds. I suffer from arthritis, and other health issues, cannot afford a gym membership. Need to go to a health rehab or some kind of place to become who I should be.

karen mowinski says:

I am late posting here for the book -but thought I would anyway! I follow you on facebook & now twitter. I can only click on the links about me, food & fitness above – the living and and family link don’t work for me. I like to hear about fitness. It is inspirational to me.


Beth says:

Love watching how you can help people. I wish you were helping me or my neighbor :)

Gina says:

I have my grocery list made and on the road to a healthier lifestyle. Thanks to you and Chris for inspiring me to become a better person! Your encouragement makes it all worth the while! God bless you both!!

Belda Covington says:

Hi Heidi,
I made the garlic parmesan chicken last night and it was awesome. I am in the process of my weight loss journey and have 95lbs to lose. I know nutrition is a huge part of weight loss so I am always looking for yummy healthy recipes to help me through this journey and then for the rest of my life, so I really like the food portion of your website (I really like your whole website but you said just choose one :))Thank you for creating this site and I cannot wait to try some of your other recipes!

Patty Gonzalez says:

Any tips on eating out? I promised my 83 year old father when we took his car keys away that I would take him out to eat every day so he could get out of the house. In my efforts to keep him from losing any more weight I find that I am gaining! Help!

Charmaine says:

Looks delish! Love all your recipes but this one looks like my next to try… http://heidipowell.net/2465/skinny-pancakes/

Lori Beaupre says:

Hey Chris & Heidi. This recipe sounds and looks so good. I would love to win one of these books. I’m trying to lose the weight but I find it very hard. I go to the gym three to four times a week for an hour at a time. My doctor wants me to lose the weight and I myself know I would feel better if I did. My family has a very bad history of medical conditions that I unfortunately have. I love watching your show and seeing how motivated you make people. I do so well all day then at night I just have no control. I wish there was a switch you could just shut off. Well keep up the good work. Hope all is well with your family.

Jill cook says:

Working on losing weight and feeding my family healthier. I need all the help I can get! Thanks for this recipe!

My name is Meagan and I’m 24 years old. I married my best friend 5 years ago and gained 100 lbs. I got up to 350, I’m now 318. Food interests me now that I know more. Food can be medication, food can completely turn your life around. I’m really wanting to start a family and can’t right now because of this issue. I take your line of products with Vemma and LOVE it. It is working very well.

Karmalee Shaw says:

Looking forward to making this recipe!
Great motivational page! I Enjoy yours and Chris’s Facebook updates!:)

Donna says:

Love all the face book posts and the show(Extreme Weight loss) Thanks for all the inspiration!

Jessica Ward says:

I love your family and am so excited for you being pregnant! So, I also love your “family” tab on your blog! I have an 11 month old myself and get super excited when women are pregnant! At first I had no idea that your blended family was “blended.” A picture that Chris posted of him and Marley a while ago on her birthday was so sweet and they looked exactly alike! The same exact smile! That just must mean he was meant to be in your life! I also love the Powell Pack videos. You are both so inspirational! I flew with my baby for the first time last month and was so nervous. I had asked you for advice since you travel with your family a lot and someone from your team was gracious enough to message me back. It was a total success and it was a great experience to be able to fly with my baby! I hope you are feeling well and congrats on your soon-to-be bundle of joy!

Crystal says:

You both are such amazing people. I think of you both throughout my day when I am preparing meals or doing a workout i think to myself what would the Powell’s do lol I love watching Extreme weight loss and following you both on FB it helps to keep me motivated. Thank you so much!

Denise says:

Thank you for your blog! It is is hard to get inspired but your blog helps me go in the right direction! Thanks again, Heidi!

Carla Peterson says:

Just want to say how inspirational Chris’ show is to me. it keeps me motivated to keep my weight off. I’ve gone from 355 to 188 and have also had skin removal surgery. It is a daily struggle continue the lifestyle that will keep me healthy and happy. I love it when he brings people to your home because it shows how passionate you and Chris are and how you care so deeply for those people struggling to live.

Kelly Thomas says:

Love the motivational posts, tips & recipes!

Karen Calhoun says:

Thank you Chris Powell for opening my eyes to the science behind how our body’s work. I have been dieting on and off (mostly on) for more than 30 years and never understood how our body’s processed calories and the importance of eating enough nutrients each day. I FINALLY GET IT!! I love to watch you each week as you challenge and encourage others on Extreme Makeover. You truly are changing America, one person at a time. I enjoy the FOOD section on the blog. Variety is important in many areas of our lives, so the more healthy recipes I have the more able I am to succeed. I have always had a passion for cooking, but it was not in a healthy way. Now, I am using the tools provided by you and your wife to learn a new way of preparing meals and hopefully teach my children how to make good food choices too. So you are not only helping this generation, but generations to come. Thank you….thank you

Laurie Tangney says:

This looks amazing – can’t wait to make this – you and your husband are so amazing – I wish you guys lived with me to kick my butt every day

Ashley Glover says:

I love reading the posts that Chris leaves ..because he always has something motivational to say. Even though sometimes they are quotes from other people..becasue Chris put it on Facebook..it gives the words more power because i trust Chris and i believe that he could make a difference in my life.;and i know that he cares enough to not give upon me. Something i have a hard time not doing. I have gained and lost weight many times. I just want to feel beautiful again and have energy again so i can play with my daughter. I feel like just reading Chris’s words would encourage me to get that drive back in my life to reach my goal of 145 pounds and to never give up.

Amy Dowding Blakewood says:

Laura Causgrove says:

I love to follow both of you guys. I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and have struggled with my weight for years. I really want to loose at least 75 more pounds, but am having trouble. I feel like everyone is giving me their opinion about what diet is best for me. I feel like you guys are straight forward and keep everything simple, not jump from fad diet to diet because someone is paying you to push their products. Thanks for inspiring so many. I may not be able to move like a lot of people right now, but you show me that there is hope for even me.

Sabra says:

I love how the two of your are truly a team. You motivate and inspire. The gifts that God gave you – you are paying forward. You post inspiring and motivational blogs. You make me laugh and give me ideas to try and recipes to use. Thankyou.

Dawn Oashgar says:

Food & Excercise

How to handle plateaus…I’v lost about 25 lbs, started at 175 and am at 150ish…I haven’t been able to go below that no matter how hard i try.

Dianne Shepherd says:

You are your husband are so inspiring. I have lost 160 lbs. in 2½ years, but still have about 100 more to go. I need help in passing a very frustrating plateau. Love your blog and the great recipes you share.

Caroline says:

Following you and Chris on FB. Recipe above looks great, gonna try soon :) Thanks for all you all do for living the healthy lifestyle

rebecca turner says:

You guys are so great, and such an inspiration to all. Thank you for doing what you do, and just for being you!

Laura Bonenfant says:

I love to follow you on Facebook and read through your blog. My favorite posts are about you and Chris’ appearances and your wonderful blended family. Thank you for opening your life to inspire and guide us.

Sandy miklush says:

I am so thankful that you and Chris are Soo willing to help all of us through your love of fitness and healthy life habits. I am down over 100 lbs since learning about you two and using your ideas and help via online and tv. Thank you from the. Bottom of my heart for helping me choose the right things.

Annette Sullivan says:

Chris I think the work that you and Heidi is remarkable! So many people come to you for help and are truly broken inside and you instill a sense of confidence where there had been none, determination & self worth in these people who now cannot imagine their lives without you. I too have struggled with my weight all my life and currently follow Weight Watchers. I know it is not easy, and it’s something you need to follow for the rest of your life. You get out of it, what you put into it. For me, I want to be the best of me that I can get, and 1 short year ago, I couldn’t walk for 10 minutes without becoming tired and short of breath. I am not up to 7 kilometers ( approx. 4.5 Miles) now and am working my way to 10kms. Walking really makes all the difference in how I feel, having Fibromyalgia, and it keeps me flexible and relieves pain. This is a lifelong battle those of us struggling with a weight problem have, and I am so very glad we have you and Heidi Chris! You guys are truly an inspiration!! I would really love a copy of your book, and pray that your contest is open to residents of Canada!! Halifax, Nova Scotia!! Thank you for everything you do Chris Powell.

Sharon Johnson says:

I believe you and Chris are awesome ! I love how you help people ! I wish I was young enough to get your help! With you guys coaching me I would never be able to fail !!!

Kara Keithley says:

I follow you and Chris wonderful what you guys do thank you

charissa pacheco says:

I’m actually going to make this recipe for dinner tomorrow – I already have everything I need :D


I love all the recipes , exercises, and most of all the inspirational stories. Your family makes you feel like we’re a part of the Powell Pack and all of you care so much and are so AWESOME.
May God bless you all and thanks so much.
With love <3 Carolyn Mabe

Lori Quimuyog says:

Food: I need a more nutritional way of eating, and excited to come across your website to help educate me.

Started following you on FB, working on loosing weight and changing our family to healthier options. Your recipies look great and easy to try!!

Heidi: Thank you for sharing all of your ideas and encouragement. I am so delighted to see you and Chris and your beautiful family doing well! I have been waiting here in Washington a very long time to be picked by Chris to undergo a transformation. I dream about and pray about hearing the words “I choose you” so that I can help my son Gabriel and help others on reservations and communities where so much of what you teach needs to be shared. I guess in the final analysis I need to choose me before my time runs out. Thank you for all you do for so many people. You are such an inspiration and blessing to our world.

Lisa reeves says:

Hello Heidi,

I am thankful for how you and Chris are so passionate about helping people get their life back. I want to thank you for sharing recipes and your family with us. Chris is so genuine when he’s working with these people chosen. I have been a fan of his for a very long time since he use to do the spots on Channel 3 News. I would love to win a copy of the book autographed. I live in Phoenix and would like to know if you guys are making any appearances anywhere? You have a beautiful family. God bless you guys and much continued success to you both.

Crystal says:

This looks delish! Can’t wait to make it! You & Chris are so inspiring & could you have a cuter family?!?

Michelle Horst says:

Loved tonight’s episode, love them all actually! Such hard work, love, dedication and transformation! I’m going to stop making excuses and get it gear myself!!

Mary says:

Hello from Iowa :)
I’m on my journey to lose 75 pounds… For me the hardest thing is knowing what to eat. It seems that whenever you turn on the TV whether it be the news or a talk show there’s always a new diet that’s supposed to be the best, or something that we shouldn’t eat and then the next week it’s good for us. It gets very confusing knowing which foods or which plan is the best to follow with all of the conflicting information. I have given up several times because I’ll tell a friend or family member what I’m doing and they will tell me that I shouldn’t the following that plan… I should be doing XYZ.

I love the posted recipe and I will be definitely trying it. I also need to work on working out but I feel like I should get my eating plan in order first. I absolutely love your show it is so motivational. I have also loved the Facebook posts showing which exercise to do during the commercial breaks…. PS: I have lost 17 pounds so far

Penny says:

This is a wonderful recipe! Can’t wait to make it and perhaps make a mango or some type of clean chutney to go on top. I have ms and Epstein Barr so I eat very clean and very healthy…no junk in our house.

Karen says:

I love the whole blog, but I’d have to say the “Family” section is my fave. It is so endearing and refreshing to bear witness to a celebrity couple who keeps it real. For example, your “35 Reasons I Love You” section was great, complete with Chris playing piano for you amongst the toys and baby gated area! You could feel the authenticity through the screen! I looked around my house, scanning the toys, laundry and unfinished dishes and thought to myself, “these guys are my kind of peeps!” I love the show, and maybe I’m a sucker, but both you and Chris seem very “what you see is what you get”. You guys have such a genuine kindness about you. I pray that Hollywood never overtakes you and you guys will forever be a testament of what hard work and love is all about. God bless your sweet family and all your endeavors!

Jackie Miller says:

I love reading your posts! I know we’re supposed to pick just one, but really it’s the combination of them all that make your site so appealing! I enjoy seeing the recipes and learning about healthier cooking options and I am inspired by the fitness posts to kick my workouts up a notch. I think learning about your family and how you’re a mom & wife make me feel like you’re a REAL person… just like all of us. :) If you can keep all this together and still make time to take care of yourself, all of us can! Thanks for all the motivation & inspiration to be healthy! Would love to win this new book! Pick Me!!! ;)

Crystal says:

I actually picked This one! I love finding new recipes that are yummy yet healthy too!
Right now I struggling with losing weight, and would love to have a copy of Chris book!

Rebecca Bot says:

FOOD. I work out consistently but am not sure how to fuel my body properly. Please help!!

Angie Hodge says:

I get bored of cooking the same meal but I love cooking! I would like to eat pasta in the most healthy way possible. .with a recipe book, you can make better choices and know you are doing the right thing! You just can’t go wrong! Thank you a bundle for caring enough to make this book for people who struggle with making good choices! I hope I can get one:)

I am 34 and have struggled with my weight all my life. I enjoy each episode I can manage to see and have been trying to put the things I see into practice. I would love to have the same chance some of the men and women you both have helped but have no clue how I could financially manage. Even if I were to not win an autographed copy of Chris’s book I will be purchasing one. Thanks for the opportunity and encouragement I get from watching these awesome transformations.

Yours truly,

Sara Van Der Linden

Heather Rohlf says:

I would love to win this book! I have followed Chris from the start of the Biggest Loser and now Extreme Weightloss! He is an inspiration to me and that there is light at the end of the tunnel for me, that I can lose this weight. I have 30 lb s I want to lose. Again, it would mean a bunch to win this book! Learning to eat cleaner is a big step!! Thanks for being you! Heather

Jennifer Hall says:

Really, all four of those topics is what I want to work on. I want to work on cooking healthier meals for my family. Figuring out a fitness routine to get me moving and staying active. I know I would be the example to my family to help them live a healthier life as well. Living a healthier more active life style is my goal and I would love any help I can get. Thank you!

Erica Ramirez says:

Fitness, I want to exercise for my own health but most important to be a role model for my kids for them to make exercise part of their daily activities.

Christy says:

Can’t wait to make this!! Thanks for all the wonderful recipes :)

Shelley Carley says:

First of all I would like to say that your show inspires me so much. My Son and I are eating much better because of YOU Chris. We are getting out more and doing activities together. We love you. We are a low income family, but do our best to get nutritious foood. I would really love a copy of your book. Thanks.

Stephanie Townsend says:

I love your recipes that you post! This is definitely one I am going to try. My family has went from a regular diet to a 99% gluten free diet in the past year. It has helped my family so much. Especially, my daughter who I have always suspected of a gluten sensitivity from birth! I was having thyroid problems and had recently read an article on gluten sensitivity with the thyroid. 2 months into the gluten free lifestyle and my thyroid is correcting itself, I have more energy, and I dropped 40 pounds! Of sourse, I exercise too! I am always looking for new ideas. Thank you so much for your posts! Garlic parmesan chicken is on our dinner menu this week! I love when I need a fresh idea for dinner that I can just look at your posts!

Casey Butler says:

LIVING for me! Love watching how you both change so many people’s lives. I faithfully watch Extreme Makeover every week and could only wish to ever be so lucky. I save my favorite episodes to refer back to when I need some extra motivation! In the last 2 years I have lost 80 lbs and am continuing to work towards my goals. I’m choosing to LIVE for my daughter and family. You’re both a HUGE inspiration to those of all sizes! Looking forward to watching as you both inspire and touch people’s lives. xoxo

Cori says:

I can’t pick just one!!! I love following your family stories and how you combine food, fitness and family in a healthy way. Thanks for being such an inspiration!!

Tina Hoffman says:

I’m currently out of work & went back to college to become an addiction counselor & behavior treatment & can’t afford your book…. I tried entering to win a free book. May God Lay His Blessings Upon You all for the help you give. Thanks

Lisa says:

I would love this book. I am always looking for different dishes for my family. I have been dealing with health issues and I eat as healthy as I can and am always looking for more.
Actually I’m interested in all…Food, Fitness, Family and Living, they are all EXTREMELY important to me and staying healthy for myself and my family and my family staying healthy for themselves is very important. There aren’t enough words to describe how important.

Chantal Taylor says:

I love watching Chris!!! He is the motivation I need!!! I saw so much of myself in this last episode that I need to get it together finally and do my own transformation once and for all!!!

Melody says:

I now follow you on fb and instagram. This is the blogpost that interests me most, because like you, I’m a busy Mom. The thing that brings me the most joy right now, as well as the best time spent with my children, is making a meal that we can all sit down and enjoy. Sometimes I don’t get to enjoy it with them. But I love when they call out, “Mom, what’s for dinner.” I am interested in providing them healthIER options, and this recipe is a nice healthIER one that I am going to make for dinner tomorrow night. Thank you Heidi Powell!

Heidi, I’m so glad you are offering this contest on your facebook page. I have been following you and Chris for awhile now! (And, have submitted a video for help). But, I did not realize you had this website! I love it already! I know when I get more time, I will be spending hours getting caught up on the entire site! Thank you and Chris both for offering all the tips and help you do for people like me (overweight). Just wish I could come spend time with you and your precious beautiful family, to see how you all live a healthy lifestyle and learn from the best!! I would love to own and read Chris’ book :)

I have applied to be on your show to see what I could become with your and Heidi’s help. and always try to do the right thing any help would be helpful.

Val Petrolay says:

I really like this recipe I am going to try it and am passing it to a friend who has lost 450 pounds by watching what he eats and working out because he was inspired by what he has seen Chris do. I want lose I workout just don’t watch what I eat. I hope with recipes that are shared on here can help me eat better.

I am learning how to cook good food that will be good for my body but also that the kids will eat. They are so used to processed and high fats and high calorie foods that it is great to learn how to feed all of us better. Thanks

Thank-you for all the healthy recipes! My daughter has Celiac Disease and I appreciate the Gluten Free recipes! Thanks again! Janice :)

Heather Ibarra says:

Hi! First of all I admire you’re family so much for all that you give of yourselves to enable another person a chance of a life worth living. I have 4 kids, 2 died when they were babies. I have a 26 yr old son and a 16 yr old daughter. I used to pray just to let me live till they graduate. I am 43 yrs old, single mom, and am now on disability. I have been diagnosed with RA, I have arthritis from the injuries of being hit by a truck when I was younger. I am over 500 lbs and I am not living, just still alive. I cry every day wanting a so called normal life. Just a moment without pain. I can’t walk anymore so my daughter has to do without a mother. I can’t go shopping with her, I can’t help her pick out clothes. She goes in to the stores for me by herself and she hates it. We fight constantly about it. Now she is over 200 lbs and feels like she isn’t pretty or good enough to even wear shorts. She is beautiful! I think I am making her like this because how I see myself. I don’t want to ruin her life also. Am I too old to get help? I have always felt bad about myself. I was molested by my older brother, put down constantly for it by my mother, my father told me he didn’t want to meet me, my husband would beat me if I would gain any weight, even when pregnant. So I never remarried after leaving him when I was 20. I have felt love from someone. I know you have to love yourself first and I have even taken classes, passed with honors, on how to value your self worth. But inside I am dead. The only thing that keeps me here is my daughter. But I am ruining her life also. I know I could never be on your show, but I sure could use some of your help. I don’t know what else to do. I don’t want to die!

I love your show Chris and watch it every week! I wish you had maybe a 3 mo. training session for me to tone up, learn to get better and lose about 10 good lbs. I have always had problems with my weight going up and down with thyroid, stomach problems and just had a pacemaker put in last April 3, 2013, so I would have to start at square one; used to exercise all the time and miss it; just need a trainer to push and guide me in the right direction! Thanks for all you do! You are great!

I am loving this blog you share with all of us. I especially love the menu ideas/tips that you share. Thank you both for sharing your wisdom with all of us.

I really enjoy the show, and how you help people to choose a healthier life and to have a healthier MIND, not just their body. I find Chris’s compassion to be so heartwarming. You are both doing God’s work and helping people help themselves.

This dish loos so delicious, and the fact that it is healthy is so much more appealing! I will be making it this week! I will let you know how it comes out!

Shelly Wistie says:

I’m just starting the 90 day Challenge here in Tempe at Lifetime Fitness. I am a 265# cycle instructor at LA Fitness. I love to exercise, but I love to eat. I “Chose” Chris Powell to help me win this 90 day challenge as I know 90% of my success is from my nutritional choices. Hence, I am interested in your food blog. I am interested in good examples of Low carb/high carb day pairings. I’m studying, learning about these changes and the transformation begins August 5th! Keep an eye out for me AZ. I’m winning the Lifetime 90 day challenge on a national level to win my life back (The 10K and the trip to Vegas is just the bonus ;).

I would love have this book so it help me to lose lot of weight. I really love the show y’all do to help people to lose weight. I used to weight 345lbs then i went down to 328I but now i probably in 330 now. So I hope I win this book to help me to lose more so that i can be healthy n wear better clothes also and other problems too. I love y’all do for other people.

You and Chris have inspired me. I love the show it has made me a better person to myself. I am always doubting myself. I am really hard on myself on how I look and feel. I want to be healthy so I can take care of myself and my family. I want to show them the best way on what to eat. My boys are old enough that they want to bike ride with me and do more activities. I love to have that boost and have Chris in the back of my mind pushing me to the max. I want to show my kiddos what they can do when they are eating right, being healthy and strong. Thanks!!

Hi Heidi, your recipe above sounds absolutely amazing!!! I make a wonderful Parmesan Chicken (you know the breaded, unhealthy stuff) So I am very anxious to try your recipe for a healthy alternative. One of my weight problems is I love to cook, but unfortunately it isn’t always very healthy, so now I am always seeking healthy alternatives to my fav dishes! Thank you so much for sharing! I really enjoy following your blog and facebook posts!

Jacquelyn says:

Carrot*Cake*Protein*Bars… ((((WHAT NO WAY)))… Yeah this got my attention!! I am a huge fan of carrot cake but I don’t make it ever because none else in my home likes it, so to make it into a good for me bar…well now I can HAVE MY CAKE AND EAT IT TOO… with out guilt.

The AZ monsoon caused the power to go out in Scottsdale half-way thru baking the chicken tonight, so my boyfriend & I finished it up on the grill with cous cous and an artichoke. Now that’s a candlelit dinner! It was delicious!

Tammy Drummond says:

Food because I hate to cook. I need to know if the receipe is a low or high carb. Hoping the book tells. Post your simple food recipes each night and make them simple. Hoping to win the book. Would be awesome.

Debbie says:

I love the recipes!I live alone and used to eat mostly processed foods (I didn’t think I was worth the time, money or effort for anything better) Now I have started eating REAL food and I make my own frozen meals. Not only are they healthier but they taste great too! Thanks for all the great recipes Heidi!!!

I LOOOOOOVE this recipe! Or should I say…it looks so yummy! I cannot wait to try it! We eat a lot of chicken in my house, because none of us (me, hubby and 8 year old twins) eat fish of any sort. I love that this is made with yogurt (I never would have thought to try that!)

Can’t wait to try this garlic chicken recipe! Sounds easy and delious! Thank you!

Brian Lindsay says:

Deb Reamer says:

This recipe looks delicious and is something my very picky husband would eat!!! I love new and different healthy recipes-keeps us out of a rut!

Hi Heidi, I love the “Family” section because it reminds us that you are not a super hero but a regular person like the rest of us with a busy schedule, a family that has needs, a traveling husband and we’ll assume you need to run to the grocery store and drop kids off at different places while also helping Chris with transformations and to boot, making time for yourself and your own exercise needs – and all while pregnant!!!! Sometimes we (the outsiders looking in) assume it’s all done for you and that you have it made, but at the end of the day, you make it happen!!! Thanks for sharing insight into your daily life.

Kim Lanci says:

I enjoyed the blog on blueberries. It’s one of my favorite fruits and it was good to learn about all the nutritional content of them.

These areas interest me because I’ve been on a diet as far as I can remember. My weight goes up and down. I love trying new healthy recipes and getting fitness tips to change it up!! Thank you!!

Cins says:

Keep the great food posts coming. I’ve lost about 38 pounds since November and am excited to keep going and improve my health and my life!

Initially it was the fitness advice that prompted me to follow you Heidi, but I’m loving the recipes too. More vegetarian ideas would be great! X

jackie mehringer says:

Hi, This is the first year I’ve watched Chris’s show and I just love it. I’ve been overweight since I had my kids the youngest is 19yr old lol. Two yrs ago I decided to have gastric bypass surgery and it changed my life. I’m in a size 12/14 now and feel great. I still need some help to keep me on track and I think Chris’s book would help me. I wish you and your family the best on the new baby you all are a beautiful family.

Rob M says:

This website as a whole is great. I will be using this website as I begin my journey to lose weight and get healthy. I am hoping that once I lose my goal of 80lbs, I can use my knowledge and information to help today’s kids lose weight and stay healthy.

i love watching extreme weight loss. chris is the best mentor

Deborah Sirdoreus says:

I love this page and EVERYTHING on it. I have my 1st book signed by both you and Chris from the 12 week challenge with Vemma. Chris inspired me along with the challenge and I bought my own fitness club. I love being fit and love helping other set/reach their goals as well. I would love o win this new book. Oh yes by the way you look so cute being pregnant. Can’t wait to see you give tips on gettg back in shape after the baby boy comes. Thanks again for everything you and Chris do. Just FYI I’m maintaining my weight(lost 43 lbs) and increasing muscle a well.

Jeff Taylor says:

Lost 54 from 3 years ago and am a self-proclaimed fitness fanatic. CrossFit 5 days a week and run 7 days a week, about 120 miles a month. I eat better but not great! Fresh produce and fruit, along with loads of water and protein shakes. I feel like my diet is boring and need an influx of support…new recipes and protein shake ideas???

Book looks great! I’d love to win one! best wishes!

Susan says:

I have lost a lot of weight already, but I still have a long way to go. Cooking is not easy for me, and I eat way more processed foods than I should. Learning to possibly doing something new with chicken, that might taste good is a great thing for me.

Eddie says:

I took a look at the food section because I have been working on my meal plan and look forward to new recipes. After looking at the healthier 4th of July BBQ (It is past the day obviously but I love BBQs), I am excited about trying the deviled eggs. I love deviled eggs! I have used Greek yogurt for a lot of other things (ranch dressing, dip with carrots, substitute for ricotta (with Parmesan and mozzarella) in lasagna to name a few) but have never thought to use it with my favorite BBQ side dish. Thank you!!!


Kelly Womer says:

This sounds so yummy and how easy! I LOVE recipes when there are ingredients that I actually have in my house! On the menu for this week! I really need some more ideas as I am so tired of the same stuff and want us to continue to eat healthy in the process not to mention having picky children, makes it more challenging. This is going to go over well at my house! thanks!

Naomi says:

OMG, these seriously look delicious! I have all the ingredients so I’m making them tonight. I love ALL of your recipes. They look good, easy to make and fast. My kind of meals! :)

Kelly says:

I love to see both recipe ideas and workout ideas, wether they are longer workouts or just how to fit in quick bursts of activity into your day.

Lori Vasquez says:

I would love this book. I am a gastric bypass patient and I was doing good until about 4 years ago. I have since put on 35 lbs and trying to get it off. I love this recipe and I can’t wait to make it. I love to cook and bake so I know this book will keep me motivated to get the weight off and eat healthy. I wish there was somebody to help and to teach me how to eat when I was a lot heavier.

Nikki R. says:

My favorite post of yours is your Pre-flight workout. It features deadlifts and I think that is one of the most effective moves a woman can do than most women don’t do! Thanks for sharing, great workout!

Beth Rudy says:

Thank You for inspiring us to get healthy and stay healthy. I wish this was instilled in me when I was a young athlete. I took my health for granted. Then life happened and I feel like everyday I have to work harder and harder on myself. With your inspiration and love for health it helps to keep my focus on why the hard work is all worth it. God Bless you and your family !!

Aimee Tucker says:

I’m actually looking for something to make for dinner tonight and it looks like I found a winner. You and your husband are so inspiring!!

Amanda Leavy says:

I love looking over your recipes I am always looking for inspiration and hints for eating better and moving more as a family. We have a blended family with 4 kids and both work full time. Its usually crazy and we don’t always have time to cook healthy meals and sit down all together so any quick easy (as in my hubby can start them for me) are perfect!

Tracy Finzel says:

Looking forward to seeing what healthy recipes I can make for my family!

Sherri says:

I love reading your recipes. I eat clean, always eating by the motto if you can’t kill it or grow it, don’t eat it. I sometimes need some inspiration. Your food blog gives me that inspiration.

I love all the recepies you post! I’d love to enter and win, my loved ones and I would benefit a lot from this book!

Christine says:

I really enjoy your living blog because not only do you discuss what you and your fsmy are up to on a daily basis but you also continue to cheer on the clients from the show after their success and send them such meaningful heartfelt sentiments! It’s like you make each and everyone of them a part of your family not only during but after their transformation! You and Chris are truly inspiring people!

Amanda Thornton says:

Hi Chris,
I love to watch your programmes her in the uk as you are such a true inspiration to all that you meet. I have struggled with my weight for the most of my life and even although I have a Gastric Band I still find it very hard as my restriction is still being tweeked. I would absolutely love a copy of your book as I am desperate for a child of my own and being in my forties I feel that my dream may just be a dream now. I am due due go through another intense course of fertility treatment by the end of Oct this year and I’m not sure if your aware that before you go through it your weight must be 35BMI or below in the UK. I would really love to have this book purely for the reason that I would love to wake up in the morning to the sound of a baby in my room looking for the eternal love I can give.

Karen Lambert says:

I love all your blogs lol but recipes the most, thanks for sharing with us :D

Cheri Leete says:

Thank you for having such a great website to help families work towards a happy life together!!

Beverly Burnette says:

Chris and Heidi, your my hero.

Chantal Boutet says:

The chicken recipe sounds very good and I’ll try it for sure

Beverly Burnette says:

I love the daily inspirational quotes that Chris and Heidi’s facebook pages. They mean alot to me, and they even respond to me personally. I can’t tell you how much it helps me. I was about to give up until he told me to just drink water and stay hydrated. Christ sent me a video on the fact that 90% of people are dehydrated and don’t even know it. I was one of those people and have lost 10 lbs. since I have started drinking my gallon a day. Doing it has kick-started my organs to work better. I am so happy about my 10 lb. weight loss. Now I am motivated.

Samantha Barber says:

All the healthy food and how to make it healthy.

Kim says:

Looks so good must try! :)

Angie loring says:

Biggest interest is being a mom & still fitting in healthy lifestyle (diet & exercise)

Ashley Clupny says:

You both are so inspirational and amazing!! Your recipes are so great and look so delicious! Thank you so much!

Any of the food post right now. Trying to eat better is a struggle and I need to start getting some recipes that will work for me.

Wendy H says:

I’d have to say food. I love the recipes because it gives me ideas on how to mix things up and not eat the same old stuff. Keep them coming

Kathy says:

This looks amazing. I am sitting here at work salivating over the picture of this chicken. I am going to make this this weekend. Thank you. Can’t wait for the book I bet a whole lot a good recipes in it as well.

Shannon says:

Thank you for the recipe idea! We struggle a lot of the time with finding new, healthy recipes that everyone will love. Then we get into a rut and end up eating the same things over and over, which can get super boring. So, THANKS!

Amanda says:

Love healthy meals my kids will eat.

The recipes are my fave! Love to see healthier items that are delish!

Shelly says:

Love all your recipe ideas!!!!!!!! And your support when I ask questions!

Emily says:

Your recipes are fantastic! There is so much junk food out there that it is hard to decide what is truly healthy to be putting in my body. Your recipe blogs help guide me in making healthy choices. Now it is easier to ignore the “bad” food that is kept in the house and choose the “good” food. My diet is where I need the most help, and your food blogs are simple enough to motivate me to cook and delicious enough to keep me sticking to my diet!

Beth Copen says:

Your recipes interest me the most (not that everything else isn’t great, too) because I’ve had to give up gluten and had a hard time finding recipes that are gluten free and easy/realistic to make. This recipe sounds wonderful and the ingredients are going on my shopping list. Can’t wait to try this!!

Megan says:

So excited to try this! I have 4 chicken breasts waiting to be used and I am so tired of all my boring recipes I’ve made to many times!!

Kathy Bedard says:

I love recipes for healthy eating!! Growing up in an Italian family,
I learned to cook all the unhealthy foods!! Now my boys are asking
Me to cook healthy, and I love watching Extreme makeover to teach me
Things, about food, exercise, mental health in relation to
A healthy lifestyle!! So please keep giving me healthy recipes!!
I love all the stuff you post and read it all!!
And I started using BodE meal replacements also!!
Thanks Guys!!! Xo

Debbie says:

I would like information on who to know to believe when it comes to nutrition. One hears we need whole grains and then when I went to a talk from a chiropractor, he says it’s a lie and gave reasons why. How are we to know who is right?

Tia says:

I just love all the recipes and tips for eating healthy here on our blog. With a family that seems to CONSTANTLY be hungry, it’s nice to have some low calorie, good for you options to offer them. Thank you so much for all that you and your husband do to help and motivate others to reach their potential. You guys are terrific!

I have to say I commented on the post about staying hydrated, titled Reluctantly Healthy. I have been following Chris for some time now and have the first book. Used it to lose 20 pounds and 17 inches in 3 months but I would veto continue on this journey to health and I am pleased to be following your blog and Facebook page now too.

It’s heartwarming to see the pics and read about how close you and Chris and your children continue to be even though you are often separated for periods of time.

Just started following you and really excited to getting new ideas that are healthy and good for me and my 4yr old daughter…

Caroline Lisby says:

Might have to try this recipe. Looks good!

Rita Drake says:

I have been overweight my whole life—literally!….but I refuse to let it get the best of me….I continue to try to lose the weight each and every year. I have no problem pushing myself during my workouts, but nutrition seems to be my downfall. Especially since I don’t like (nor do I have a lot of time) to cook :/
I enjoy seeing the FOOD recipes, but also the FITNESS suggestions.

kim says:

This looks like an easy summer recipe that will taste delicious! Thank you for a recipe that allows people to see how easy and delicious easting healthy can be!

Sharlene says:

Definitely the Food / recipes! I’m not a nutritionist and don’t even like to cook so finding ‘healthy, fast, easy’ recipes that meet the Powell Carb Cycling thumbs-up is great — I can stop fussing and just fix it, practice portion control and lose the flab. Thanks so much, Heidi!

Charla Peeks says:

I enjoy the food section because after a year and a half of watching your husband Chris Powell help so many people on Extreme Makeover Weight loss Edition I have set a new goal for the next year and a half to lose 150 pounds. By losing the weight I will walk across the stage a brand new person that has waited now over 20 plus years to get out, and I know that you have helped Chris with his success so I am now adding you to my support team to give me the healthy alternatives that I will be needing to succeed. Thanks for your dedication to helping me with so many aspects in living healthy I look forward to sharing your vision of health.

Kimberly Whitney says:

Kristal Sherman says:

I am always looking for recipes that are healthy for me, yet family friendly for my 5.5 year old. Yours hit the mark! Thanks!

Amy Limberg says:

Thanks for the recipe! Always looking for easy, healthy, yet kid approved meals! And using my toaster oven, won’t heat up my house! YAY! Love your blog and what the Powell Pack does for people every day. :)

Eve Garibay says:

Thanks for this opportunity, I’m from México and I really enjoy all your tips and recipes.

Melody Jones says:

This looks great, can’t wait to try it, thanks for the recipes

Hannah Scott says:

This looks wonderful. I make a similar parmesan chicken recipe, but with olive oil instead of greek yogurt. I’m looking forward to making it this way – sounds delicious.

This seems to be quite a bit of seasoning salt though – I will definitely leave that out. Do you not watch sodium or is it because it’s only a 4 oz serving that the amount doesn’t make that big of a difference (436mg)? I am curious because I’ve been watching sodium quite a bit lately, and it seems to be pretty popular to get “no salt added” foods.

Thanks for your blog. I love getting new healthy recipes.

admin says:

Note that the nutritional data was updated. Thre are only 173.5 mg of sodium. Apologize for the confusion.

Jen Andrew says:

John E. Morrs says:

Hah hah! I’m a second-year culinary school student, so summer or not, I want to spend as much time in the kitchen as possible!

Having said that – this looks like a nice, simple dish. Though…I’d use bone-in chicken breasts because they don’t dry out like boneless, and toss in a squeeze of lemon and some chopped parsley at the end.

Brenda Janisch says:

I love the recipes and child friendly recipes that you post, I love your blog!!!

jen says:

I love Chris’ show I watch it for ideas and inspiration, I have bad knees that I cant kneel on or can send a sudden jolt if I land or shift my weight wrong, suffering from patella maltracking syndrome, so i watch for something I can do and not injure the knees worse. Sadly I also work over nights 10hr shifts so there is alot of sitting in my line of work, plus I have atleast a two hour drive round trip for work four days a week. But over all i need to loose this weight once and for all. Thank you for what you and Chris do to help so many people. You guys are amazing.

We find you and Chris an inspiration to our weight loss. i plan on looking through more recipes to make our diet interesting and fun. I would love to win a copy of Chose More, Lose Moe.

Looks delicious! I definitely will try this recipe; chicken is my favorite, go-to lean protein. I have been reading your blog and following you and your husband on facebook, since I caught an episode of Extreme Weight Loss, for great ideas and motivation as I started my lifestyle change and weight loss journey. Your food blog has been helpful with making healthy food choices and you always have a healthy twist on traditional favorites…pancakes, chicken parm etc. Hoping to get my hands on “Chose More, Lose More” to guide me through this journey!

Torri M says:

Rozi Beaver says:

Hey Heidi,
I would love a chance to win your book. I feel as though it would keep me on track with my goals, hopes and dreams as I recently just lost 110 lbs. My journey is not over and I have more to lose. Your book would give me insight and switch up my boring menu for my 4 year old and myself. I enjoy watching Chris transforms lives every Tuesday evening.That inspires me to do even more good for myself and my daughter so she does not have to go through what I went through!!

Tami says:

I love the show and its gotten me to start carb cycling!! Although I love everything you share, I really need easy family friendly recipes.

Erin Canseco says:

I LOVE THE RECIPES. Trying to change the way my grown daughters and I eat so we don’t all end up needing you to adopt us for a year but it is hard to find stuff we actually want to eat.
I have your first book and though it contains some recipes to get ya started I need more…also I’m interested in seeing what the schedule is for the folks you help in the first 3 months…you know like a hour by hour schedule of what they eat and what they do to move…etc

Lisa Mueller says:

Just found your blog today. I cant wait to try this recipe.
I would love the change to win a copy of the book. I really need help with this portion of weight loss. I have the exercise part down but need help or guidance with the food stuff.
Thank you.

Tammy Nelson says:

They all interest me. :) But I liked the recipe for the Greek Yogurt Pops. It is so hot here and that will make a great healthy treat for me an my kids.

Barb Keating says:

Always talking about fitness and health with my family and my students! Teaching middle school students about food science and the importance of good nutrition and exercise is just what I do! Love this excellent resource and will share the good news with family and friends, too! Always looking for healthy food choices and making it a lifestyle, and this site is fantastic!

Becci says:

I love the food blogs like this one. Oh and the fitness is fun too. But family and living are good too :) but the meal ideas are most useful cause I am always looking for new healthy ideas and if it passes the Powell family standards you know it’s good ;)

Ashley says:

Love getting exact recipes by the powell pack!

Janie says:

I have a big problem with the food on what to fix. I’m not one that can take anything and make something.

Khristina says:

Yum! I know my family would love this meal – esp. with steamed broccoli!

Karen Mason says:

Cant wait to try this!

Linda Gunger says:

I just started following you although I’ve followed Chris and your posts on Chris’s site for about a year. I’ve learned so much and I’ve seen your posts. Now, I am very interested in quick, easy, healthy recipes. Having lost 165 pounds at age 54, I’ll have soon lost the final 15 and am wanting good recipes for maintaining the weight loss. I am using the 9-minute videos to add strength training for the first time. So I guess food and fitness are my top two areas of interest. I am going to make this garlic/parmesan chicken recipe – my very first recipe after I go grocery shopping!

Marnie Sneddon says:

I started following both you and Chris on facebook, and look daily for your posts. I am just trying to finish Chris’ book and then plan to start on the turbo cycle myself, I would love to win an extra book for my dad so he can also benefit from all the knowledge you two have!!

Alicia Lovercheck says:

This recipe sounds so good. I would love to have the cook book.

Mary Beth Westfall says:

Love your recipes. Gives me great ideas for my family.


Stephanie says:

I love the fitness section of the site, because that’s the area I struggle with the post. The most useful post (so far!) has been: http://heidipowell.net/1330/mix-up-your-cardio-routine-with-intervals/, because I am CLUELESS when it comes to interval training, so I’m trying to learn all that I can.

michele s says:

I have been on a healthier eating life style for the last year and I am always looking for good dinner ideas and fitness tips

Rosa Macias says:

Hello, I just started following you on facebook a couple weeks ago and will be following on instagram as well. I enjoy your motivational posts and enjoy the blogs. I am interested in weight loss and recipes, your blog posts are very helpful for me to get new ideas for eating/exercise.

Lisa Hixson says:

Love all these delicious options for meals!

Karolyn Whatley says:

Love your food blog. I find it really hard to find healthy food that I will actually try and make. Going to try this parm chicken for sure :)

Kim Lechner says:

Love the Garlic Parmesan Chicken recipe. New to the blog but have followed Chris Powell and Extreme Makeover Weight Loss. You both are such an inspiration and have motivate me to start making healthy changes in my life. Keep up the great work.

Lyndsie says:

I’m so making this tonight. :) I love how easy your recipes (and the recipes in Chris’ book) are! My 3-yr-old son is actually trying them and liking them. Score!

Jen says:

I will have to try this. I am an odd duck because I don’t really like chicken unless it’s fried or covered with ooey gooeyness. This may just be perfect. Thanks

Jessica allen says:

I love all of your posts. Be it food, family life or workouts. It is great to see another mom in amazing shape while still being a good mom and wife. I love the look into your life that shows Anyone can do what you do. Busy moms like you inspire other moms to work harder.

Jenny Mather says:

Looks amazing! Wasn’t sure what to make for dinner tonight and BAM! Heidi Powell to the rescue. Thanks for helping my family’s table stay healthy and our bellies full and happy !

Sarah Danielson says:

I love your blog – I just found it last week and I now am checking it everyday! I love the recipes and the fact that you have a family of almost 4 kiddos — I have 4, age 3, 4, 6, & 7 so I love your family friendly tips, of food, exercise, family, just the whole thing combined!

Lana Shirey says:

I would love a chance to win an autographed copy of Choose More, Lose More for Life. I am most interested in health and weight loss right now, so all of your recipes, exercises and posts are very inspiring to me. Thank you

Venessa Reyes says:

I am a newbie but love the recipe ideas. Makes me realize its great for me and my son and I’m not just eating boring diet food on my own! Lifestyle!!!

Linda Jones says:

Your blogs with yummy gluten free recipes. I have been struggling to lose weight for a couple of years now. I am marathon runner, I have always tried to eat healthy but my weight just keeps going in the wrong direction. My Dr.recently discovered I have a hig. antibody count which is causing my normal hormones to fail. He put me on a gluten free diet. I was really depressed thinking of everything I would have to give up. Your recipes have encouraged me and helped me see that gluten free does not have to bland and boring. I have passes the two week mark of gluten free and feel so much healthier.

Sarah S says:

I really love the recipes/FOOD posts to keep it fresh!!! I can fall into meal planning ruts very easily!

Deborah Dunne says:

I can’t pick just one because for me they all go hand in hand. Last year I began my weight loss journey and was able to reach my goal in December. I have maintained it o far. I changed my lifestyle for the better. I write down your recipes because not only do they sound good but are healthy for you!! I started doing mini workouts during commercial breaks, as suggested. Who knew that at 52, I’d be healthier and fitter than when I was 20!! I’ve put all the fitness tips and recipes to good use!!!!

Tracy says:

I am new to your blog but I am loving all aspects. I love love love the recipe ideas (especially todays chicken parmesan looks yummy & gooey) but I also love hearing and seeing photos of you & Chris and your family (& the baby bump). I have loved Chris since first seeing him on EMWL as you can tell he is genuine and I love that about him. I wish you & Chris would come to Canada sometime! Love ya! Hugs

Christine says:

I love your blog, but I am really interested in the Food section of your blog. First, because its often difficult to come up with simple, healthy options for dinner and you make it fun, creative, easy and tasty! Also, because I really like the “What’s in my fridge” post because we know you are healthy and but now we can see what you keep in there too! Plus It gives me ideas of what I should be keeping stock of in my fridge.It’s nice to know you are real people eating real food! Maybe you can do a follow up with ” What’s in my pantry?” LOL

Jamie Mills says:

I’m the winner, I just know it! Tee Hee :)

Candice Quilty says:

Hi Powell Family,
My name is Candice Quilty and I am 28 years old. I went thru a difficult couple years with work, life, you know. Well, I found yoga and it saved me. It had showed me how to listen to my body and see what I need or might not need. I found out gluten free was a smart choice, I am seeing if dairy free might be another. Well, the reason I am writing to you because I decided to get my certification as a yoga instructor so I did. And now I am wondering who I want to teach, I love your show and what you do and how you help others and that is what I want to do. Maybe hopefully our paths will cross and maybe I can help you help others change there lives! Thank you for taking the time to read this!
Thank you
Candice Quilty

Jen Mooney says:

Kaelyn Elliott says:

I have been a fan of EWL since the beginning and have been following you & Chris on Instagram for quite sometime. In the last month, I have lost 18 lbs and right under 9 inches. Your positive posts on Instagram keep me motivated to post my own pictures to keep myself accountable. I love looking on your site at the recipes!! They are all so flavorful and easy- which is important to a full-time college student. Just wanted to say thank you to you & your husband for inspiring so many & truly being genuine people that care about the health and well being of others!

Lori says:

This sounds absolutely fantastic!!! I am always looking for new recipes that are quick and easy to make after work…and for it to be a healthy recipe…that makes it so much better! Thank you for sharing this!!!

Diane Neal says:

I love learning how to make healthy foods. Most of us have spent our lives growing up on processed and boxed foods and snacks and being an adult learning how to go the other way can be difficult. especially having to cook for others who don’t always feel the way you do. I think its amazing the work that you both do. You have inspired me and Ive lost 90 lbs already this last year and am going for 100 more! This way we can start our family this next year and I am so excited! So thank you again for being my inspiration and guide on this journey! -

Terrie says:

I can’t wait to make this! YUM!

Jamie Biasi says:

MMmm! This sounds amazing and looks easy to prepare. Always love your recipes!

Laura says:

I really enjoy your recipies as you are a busy mom as well you can appreciate the quick, easy, and HEALTHY recipies :)

E.S. Rios says:

I’m a follower, and I can post comments, and “like” the section I commented on, but there is no option to “share” or to tag Heidi in (as she is a public figure, it just doesn’t allow that.) Did what I was able to do, hope it counts.

Claudia says:

This looks awesome! Would have never guessed that Greek yogurt could be used for cooking…

If I win, would you please autograph the book as well? You guys are such a powerful team!

Susan Russell says:

I loved the post on healthy foods/meals for your kids. My girls are young but they don’t always eat the best.

Anna Ferrentino-Barroso says:

Sounds great but is the receipe missing the garlic?

admin says:

Its been updated.

Karen Albro says:

I am a follower already. Would like to have Chris’s next book for more information.

Darcy K says:

Looks yummy

I really want to win the book Choose More, Lose More for Life! I admire you and Chris, and not just as coaches, I admire you as a couple, both of you are really great!!

I really love when you post about recipes, and things we can do as a family to move forward.

susan mendell says:

looks yummy for the family

Sandy Rosser says:

I used to make this with mayo. The nutritional info on this sounds better!

Blake Maser says:

Hi Heidi!
Looks and sounds like a great recipe, but you forgot to add the garlic to the list of ingredients, as the name states its Garlic Parmesan Chicken. :-)

Amanda Holcomb says:

I like the post, What’s in my fridge. I like to see what you keep in the fridge on a day to day to give me some good ideas on where to improve my shopping. :) Trying to keep the whole family fit and on track with me is one of the biggest battles. I tweeted it @ajhcreative

Tatyana Haddock says:

@Heidi Powell, every recipe you post is SO “do-able”, even with a busy family! And for this one, the Chicken Parmesan, it packs a whopping 62g of protein! Can’t wait to make it for my family! Thanks for being such a wonderful role model for busy moms everywhere!

Lanny Erdman says:

I adore you and Chris!! Anyone that gives of himself to help others, I have the utmost respect for. The connections you make with people are so real and genuine, that’s hard to find these days:). I appreciate the recipes, the never ending, wonderful, positive words of hope, and that you share your family:) I have four kids that are all grown, so the pics of your kidos, brings back a lot of fond memories and makes my heart smile:). Thank you for all you both do!! Your a power couple, inside and out!!

Jessica Z says:

I love your food posts you always make low carb dishes I would have never thought if on my own!

Conner says:

My wife has been using your recipes for healthy snacks and they have been awesome. I loved the peanut butter protein bars, and the oatmeal muffins. Can’ wait to see what she will be making next. I know that I have a long journey ahead of me to make my weightloss goals but following your blogs, and drawing inspiration from the show has made this journey feel not so imposible. Thank you !

E.S. Rios says:

I think the food section is my favorite because I love finding new, but healthy recipes I can make for my family.

Cassandra Woods says:

With your facebook page listed as a Public figure it would not let me tag you in the posting.

Lauren Campbell says:

I love all of the recipes you post and all of the sweet personal posts about your family! The anniversary post where you put all the things you love about Chris was really adorable. I’ve watched your show for long time now and think it’s wonderful how much you two help people and transform their lives. Keep doing all the wonderful things you guys do, can’t wait to see what the new little baby looks like! Did you ever tell us if it’s a boy or girl?

Amy says:

Okay, silly question (or not!) but where is the “garlic” in the Garlic Parmesan Chicken?? Still sounds yummy, can’t wait to try it!!

Lori Freshour says:

This is definitely a recipe I’m going to try. Sounds yummy!!!

Cassandra Woods says:

Thank you for sharing these recipes. I tried some of the others this weekend with my family. They were easy, teen/kid friendly and easy to adapt serving size from the recipe to feed the crew.

Cyndi Harlow says:

Today is my first day of carb cycling. I’m excited to get started! I’ve been up for 30 minutes, I’ve done my Mission & had my breakfast. Off to the right start!
Is this recipe a LC or HC meal?

Shirley Blanchard says:

I am trying to follow the plan, but cant seem to remember ever thing, if i had the book i could read and read and read till it sank in, i have lost a few pounds and i thank you both. im on a limited income so i cant afford to buy the book, too many ahead of me at the library.Family is what intrested me the most. the way you and chris bring the children in to your ever day life, the way you and chris work together. you both amaze me. and i love you dearly for your caring loving hearts.

Laura Hagedorn says:

I would love to win this cook book! It would help me eat healthy!

Katie Mullin says:

Looks good but why isn’t there any garlic listed in the ingredients if its called Garlic Parmesan Chicken?

Kelli says:

Love recipes like this! Kid friendly for my toddler :) I look forward to any recipe you post!

kim Behrman says:

Food. I need a way to cook healthier for my family with foods they will actually enjoy eating. We are doing somewhat better, but have a long way to go. Watching Chris on Extreme Weight Loss has really inspired me to get fit and take better care of myself.
