Slow Cooker Chicken and Sausage Gumbo

This requires some minor prep in a saute pan before you throw everything in the crock pot, but I think it's worth the effort. It's also a rather salty dish, so I don't eat this very often, but it's good occasionally, and it would have a lot less sodium if you use a low sodium chicken broth and/or low sodium sausage if you can find it. Gumbo is one of those things that most people just DO and don't really follow a recipe for, so I did my best here, but don't be afraid to make alterations. This recipe is also great with shrimp. Serve over brown rice with some corn bread or a fresh salad, whatever your calorie allotment allows you!

Pumpkin Cranberry Oat Bran Muffins

These are very soft and yummy muffins that just happen to be wonderfully healthy. When cranberries are in season, you can use fresh, but I use frozen ones during the rest of the year. Also, I find oat bran in the bulk bins at my grocery store, but wheat bran or even all whole wheat flour/oat flour should work. You could probably alter these and make blueberry banana or apple ones as well! I'd recommend using a good nonstick or silicone muffin pan for these; they stuck to my paper muffin wrappers a lot when we went to eat them, but everyone was trying to lick the paper clean nevertheless!
