Meatless Monday Slow Cooker Bean Soup
I make this in the slow cooker, but it can be simmered in a heavy pot on top the stove, stirring often, or in a 350 oven. Both these alternate method will take about 2 1/2 hours. They will take more water than the slow cooker, so check frequently to make sure they don't cook dry and burn.
Whole wheat Veggie Pizza
This is a healthy high fiber guilt free pizza that tastes great! I regularly make this for myself and my daughter. We usually eat two slices for dinner (which comes in at less than 500 calories) and save the other two pieces for breakfast the next day.
Carrot and Tropical Fruit Muffins
I adapted this from the 'Glorious Morning Muffins' recipe I found on the back of a Pillsbury flour bag. My version uses whole wheat flour and applesauce instead of apples. I've also changed the kind of dried fruit and nuts called for.
Lemon Chia Seed Muffins
These tangy muffins are made with white whole wheat flour, which is just as nutritious as regular whole wheat flour, but lighter in texture and taste.
