Cookbook creator says: Over the past few months, I have been trying to change the way I cook and eat. More whole grains...more veggies and fruits. These are the recipes that I have found successfulSubmitted by EMERGENCYRN11
This is a whole grain, low calorie version of the Fannie Farmer cookbook muffin. Oatmeal, whole grain four, and Splenda is used instead of pastry flour and sugar. You could further cut it using egg substitute and oil instead of butter. I raised my kids on this muffin recipe - and have since made it a bit more healthy. Submitted by LLCURTS
Crisps are a quick and easy dessert. I like to use whatever fruit is in season: blueberries, strawberries, peaches, cherries, plums, pears, and apples.
I use two cups of fruit in this recipe so that each person gets a full serving of fruit, but when you buy berries they come in pints. One pint of berries yields about 1 1/2 cups. That means you're either a half-cup short or you need to buy two and have a cup leftover. Save the extra berries for your morning cereal, freeze them for smoothies--or just add them to the crisp. The more fruit, the merrier.
You can use frozen (no need to thaw before baking) or fresh fruit in this recipe.
Serve any leftovers atop plain yogurt for breakfast. Submitted by STEPFANIER
I find this a really filling meal, the goat cheese I use has a bit less fat then the one in the recipe. You can substitute a Low Fat Goat Cheese if you want to bring down the fat content more.
Also, you can substitute fresh beets, I use the canned kind when I don't feel like peeling beets.
You can also add potatoes, zucchini, carrots, or any of your other favourite veggies!Submitted by TABIRI
