Applesauce Oatmeal Muffins
Very Good 4.3/5
(2558 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: This was great! I just used Splenda instead of sugar and added ground flax seed. Make sure to use non-stick spray, because I made the mistake of just using paper cups and they stuck to them.
I'm adding blueberries for something different next time!

Cottage Cheese Oatmeal Pancakes
Very Good 4.4/5
(117 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: I add about a 1/2 tsp of cinnamon as well.
I find adding all the ingredients together and the blending works just fine (but I use a Magic Bullet-like blender).
I also like topping them with unsweetened apple sauce instead of syrup. Yum!

Recipe from the "Eat Clean Diet Cookbook". I put single servings in containers in the fridge and had breakfast/snacks for a week. You could also vary the dried fruit or nuts to suit your mood or taste. Really yummy!

Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches
Very Good 4.4/5

Cookbook creator says: I put about half a bottle of bbq sauce, 1/2-3/4 can of diet pepsi, and water so that the pork was almost covered. Cooked on low for 6 hrs, then drained some of the liquid (about half), pulled the pork apart, and added the rest of the bbq sauce and let it cook another hour.

When I get focused on losing weight....I buy spaghetti squash. This is so easy to make, and really filling. Add a baked chicken breast for a complete meal.
