Eating healthier can be a challenge but we know it’s all about making the right choices and substitutions. Today Chef Nick Stellino is back with the ladies and Nutritionist Meryl Brandwein for a little “challenging” fun in the kitchen. Last time they were together, Chef Nick showed them how to create their favorite comfort foods and beverages without sacrificing flavor using Born Sweet Zing. This stevia sweetener, made with only real ingredients has a delicious, sweet taste and in my opinion without a funny aftertaste…and today we are using the baking blend to make some very satisfying fruit and veggie muffins.

The ladies have learned a lot about substitutions so today Nicole and Rochelle along with Rochelle’s son will be given the opportunity to make their own healthy substitutions under the watchful eye of mission makeover nutritionist Meryl Brandwein.

Tune in to see what’s in store for the Core Four on the award-winning series Mission Makeover® in Episode 9 on Tuesday, April 7, 2015 at 7:30 am (ET/PT) on Lifetime, the encore presentation of Monday’s show.

What strategies are they using to maintain their momentum as they get closer to the finish line of the competition?


With help from these experts, the Core Four stays motivated to “keep on keeping on”:


  • Pears and Pumpkins – Eating healthier can be a challenge but it’s all about making the right choices and substitutions. Chef Nick Stellino is back with the ladies and Nutritionist Meryl Brandwein for a little “challenging” fun in the kitchen to bake fruit and veggie muffins ….using Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener and Zing™ Baking Blend made of Stevia and pure cane sugar….it bakes and browns like sugar! Rochelle finds a way to sneak some vegetables into the recipe for her son while Nicole substitutes based on her flavor preferences. Zing™ Stevia Sweeteners are made with only real ingredients – nothing artificial. After baking the muffins they will do a taste test…so watch to see who is declared the winner!


  • Eating fruits or their labor – Today… it’s time to garden! The ladies get to the root of matter and meet Susan Ralston from Healthy Weight Commitment in Nutritionist Meryl Brandwein’s own garden, who shows us some ways to engage the entire family with active gardening. The kids and ladies make container gardens that they can take home and tend to…. a great way to learn about variety and eating a rainbow of fruits and vegetables. Many interesting veggies can be easily grown and are inexpensive and fun to plant, grow, pick, and use in the kitchen! The Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation promotes healthy and active lifestyles for families.


  • “Walk a mile in her shoes” – The ladies will get some “life after the makeover” advice from last season’s contestant Victoria Brooks! What is she is doing now and what are her current digits? She repeats her Mantra “that no cheeseburger has ever made her feel as good as a size 6!” Victoria will share some prep tips for her runs, like having the right gear like Socks – so Vicky introduces the ladies to the Hidden Comfort Line from Balega International. They were designed by runners for everyone who would like to perform at their top ability in absolute comfort. The socks are seamless for greater running comfort and reduced risk of blisters. Her favorite thing about socks is that with every pair sold, some monies go to support great causes.


Success is not a Race – Meryl will share her thoughts brought to you by HairUWear Motivational Moments, with tips on how to keep moving toward your goals!
