The lovely couple, Pat and Gina Neely, are well-known for building their southern cooking empire, and now they’re sharing some new secrets to creating a healthy lifestyle with the Eye Opener team.

At the annual “Atlantic City Wine and Food Festival”, the Neely’s demonstrated their southern-comfort recipe for success. Gina lost 20 pounds from changing her eating habits through the George Forman Weight Loss Challenge, and she is challenging others to do the same! By simply altering long-time recipes, reducing the use of butter and seasoning, and using smart shopping techniques, the Neely’s have discovered the secret to establishing a new love for food.

The Neely’s Food Network web page proudly displays some of their iconic recipes here. You can also visit Gina and Pat’s online home for more recipes, merchandise, cookbooks, and information here! Check them out on Twitter @GinaAndPatNeely.
