Recipes I've Shared:

Kate's Morning Muesli

Easy for on-the-go and quick a.m. meals. Lots of fiber. I like to let it soak in milk overnight and add sliced banana. Enjoy!

Crustless Mini Yogurt-Cheesecakes

Seriously? At just 90 calories, how can you say "no"? :)

Made from homemade yogurt cheese; sweetened with honey. So good on their own, but I also like to top with preserves or apple butter. Enjoy!


Incredible! (4 ratings)
Slowcooker Lentil, Black Bean and Sweet Potato Chili (Slow Cooker, Crockpot, Crock Pot)

Super easy and flavorful crock pot recipe that's high in protein, low in fat, and wonderfully filling. Enjoy!

Slow Cooker Apple Butter

This is so easy, and the result is a wonderfully sweet, smooth apple spread that's low in calories and basically fat free. You can bake or cook with apple butter, top your favorite frozen dessert with it, add it to yogurt...the sky is the limit! :)

This recipe calls for considerably less sugar than most, but believe me: it's plenty sweet, especially if you're using a sweet apple variety. (You might increase the sugar if using tart apples depending on your preference.)

Granola with Sunflower and Pumpkin Seeds

This is a fairly mild-tasting granola sweetened lightly with honey and fresh bananas. You can add whatever you desire -- nuts, dried fruits, etcetera. I like this as-is with yogurt, banana, and flaxseed in the morning. The best part is that it makes a lot, so I only have to make a batch every couple of weeks or so!

Slowcooker Yogurt (Slow Cooker, Crock Pot, Crockpot)

A super easy, cost-effective and healthy way to make your own yogurt. I use whole milk and have not tested this recipe with low fat or skim. I assume that would make a thinner batch of yogurt, but you can always strain off the whey to thicken if you like.

Slowcooker Applesauce (Slow Cooker, Crock Pot, Crockpot)

Yummy, easy, fresh! So good warm with yogurt and nuts. Enjoy!

Chickpea/Garbanzo Bean

This is one of my favorite recipes. It's a crowd pleaser, even for meat lovers. It's super hearty and filling, high in protein, and very versatile, plus I pretty much always have the ingredients in my pantry!

Top with a nut sauce (like peanut butter or almond sauce), marinara, gravy, cheese -- you name it!

Serve on a bed of spinach, quinoa, or whole wheat pasta.
