Low Carb Pumpkin Chili Chicken


Submitted by Angelique

I love chili and this is the time of year when the slow cooker comes out for the warm comfort foods. I decided to make a low carb version with lean ground chicken and it turned out delicious!

Healthy Yam Casserole


Submitted by Angelique

I made this for Thanksgiving this past weekend, and you can pass it as dessert too! Although a sweet dish for dinner, it was really good.

Bake or microwave 4-8 yams, depending on how many people you are serving, until tender enough to mash. When yams have cooled, peel and mash. Mix with 1/2 cup egg whites and 1 egg, 1 tbsp butter, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp vanilla extract and stevia to taste.

You can add pecans or walnuts to the dish, or make a topping with oats, stevia and nuts.

Pour in dish and bake for 25 minutes at 350F.

Serve with turkey dinner or as a substitute for pumpkin pie.

Enjoy!

Healthy “Eatmore” Treats



Submitted by Angelique Kronebusch

I call these treats “Eatmore” because they taste exactly like an Eatmore bar, no joke!

I saw lots of similar recipes on the internet but I used peanuts instead of other nuts since I am allergic to tree nuts. I can’t even tell you the ratio of the ingredients because I literally dumped all the ingredients in the food processor, lol!

The ingredients you will need are: dates, dry roasted peanuts and 1 tbsp vanilla extract

Pour all ingredients in the food processor. If you measure, the ratio is 2:1 of dates to peanuts. Blend all ingredients in the food processor. If the ingredients don’t stick together, add more dates to make the mixture moist.

When everything is blended together, pour into a bowl and shape the mixture into bite size balls. You can even roll them in coconut flakes, chopped peanuts or eat on their own. Just be careful because these little treats are easy to chow down!

Enjoy!

Apple Protein Muffins


Submitted by Angelique Kronebusch

This is a delicious way to get in a quick and nutritious breakfast, especially if you are on the go!

  • 1 Cup Ground Oats
  • 1 1/2 Scoops Natural Vanilla Protein Powder ( I used Progressive Harmonized Vegan Vanilla Protein Powder)
  • 2 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Cup Egg Whites
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 1 Cup Unsweetened Natural Apple Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Apple Cut into Thin Slices (Set Aside to Top Muffins)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350.

Mix all dry ingredients together, then mix in all wet ingredients. Stir until smooth. Lightly spray muffin tin with non-stick spray. Place batter evenly in muffin tins and place 1-2 thin apple slices on top of each muffin. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Remove from the oven, gently remove them from the tin and place on a cooling rack. These are very fragile so only take them out of muffin tins when they are completely. Keep them in an air tight container. Makes about 8-10 muffins.

I like to use the silicone muffin trays, no tins or paper cups needed and when the muffins cool down, they can pop right out!

2 muffins per serving should be good!
