Supercharge Your Slim-Down

Diet doesn't have to be that kind of four-letter word. Ours lets you eat five times a day, which means you'll feel satisfied, not starving. And because every meal and snack contains at least one energy-boosting superfood, you'll have more than enough get-up-and-go for your workouts. Follow the plan and do the moves and you'll drop 10 pounds this month. Except for a celebratory "Hell, yeah!" there will be no more swearing as you slide into your skinny jeans.


Each recipe clocks in around 300 calories. Get your morning started the right way.

Banana-Walnut Pancakes

Combine 1/3 cup just-add-water whole-grain pancake mix and 1/3 cup water; stir in 1/2 banana, diced, and 5 chopped walnut halves. Mist a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Spoon batter into skillet to make 2 pancakes and cook for 2 minutes a side, or until golden. Top with 2 tablespoons 2 percent plain Greek yogurt, 2 teaspoons maple syrup, and 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon.

Mango-Oat Smoothie

In a blender, puree 1 cup water, one 6-ounce container 2 percent plain Greek yogurt, 1/2 cup fresh or frozen mango chunks, 1/2 cup fresh or frozen sliced strawberries, 1/2 cup chopped kale leaves, and 1/3 cup rolled oats until smooth.

Avocado Eggs Benedict

Mash together 1/3 avocado, juice from 1/2 lemon, and 1/8 teaspoon dried dill. Top 1/2 toasted whole-grain English muffin with avocado mixture, 1 tomato slice, 1 slice warmed Canadian bacon, and 1 poached egg; season with salt and pepper.

Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

Stir together 1/2 cup warm cooked quinoa, 1/2 cup chopped pear, and 2 teaspoons honey or agave nectar. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon.

Kale-and-Egg Breakfast Wrap

Mist a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Saute 1/4 cup chopped onion and 1 cup thinly sliced kale leaves for 4 minutes. Beat 1 egg with 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes and a pinch of salt and pepper and pour over kale; scramble until eggs are set. Spoon egg mixture into center of a warmed 8-inch whole-grain tortilla. Top with 2 sliced cherry tomatoes and 1 tablespoon crumbled goat cheese and fold like a burrito.
