Some of our favorites...

*Breakfast/Lunch FAVORITES!*
Now that my husband is almost at a 90lb weight loss-YES, THAT'S RIGHT, 90 lbs!
(Don't worry, this Momma is trying to keep up but its FLYING off of him)
I have had so many people ask, "what do you cook and what are your favorites?"
So, here are a few...These cinnamon-raisin biscuits served with a slice of turkey bacon and scrambled egg whites are a family favorite-my boys LOVE these biscuits and I bake 'em, stick the rest in a freezer bag and thaw as I need them :) Keep in mind, PORTION CONTROL! We eat one biscuit, one slice of turkey bacon and about 1/2 cup egg whites!
You'll Need:
1 1/2 cup any baking mix-I used Bisquick
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup skim milk
1/3 cup sugar-I use a little less
1/3 c raisins
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbs flaxseed meal-once this is added, I add a little water because the batter will get thicker!
Bake at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes!
Whole Wheat pumpkin muffins-
sorry, no pics of this one but it's SO good!
You'll Need:
1/2 veg oil
2 eggs
1 2/3 c whole wheat flour
2 tbs. flaxseed meal
3/4 c sugar
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/3 c water
1 c canned pumpkin puree-I use almost the whole can!
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Mix eggs, pumpkin and oil, until well blended
mix dry ingredients and then slowly add to other bowl
Mix well, bake at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes!
These freeze well and are perfect for FALL!! SO good for the whole family!

Grilled Cheese w/ a TWIST!
*Our boys LOVE these too :)
You'll need:
100% whole wheat sandwich thins
apple slices of your favorite apple!
sliced 2% cheese of your choice
small amount of tub margarine

I use the small amount of margarine to coat the inner side of the sandwich thins, so you don't lose the sprinkled grains on the outside, add my cheese and layer of THIN apple slices
and that's it! It's actually very filling and taste great too!
*Added bonus, I sprinkle 2 tbs. flaxseed meal that I told you about in THIS post
to the top as its grilling...gives added fiber and omega 3's!

Hummus Wrap!
Wow, does this have good flavor and its filling too!
You'll Need:
Whole Wheat, Low Carb Tortillas-we use Mission brand
Romaine lettuce
and my hummus was SOOOOO easy to make!
1 can 15 oz garbanzo(chick peas) drained and rinsed
2 cloves of fresh garlic, chopped
2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp salt
Mix all in food processor in mini-chopper is what I use! Mix until well blended and almost a paste texture! This stuff is G-O-O-D! trust me!!! The garlic adds GREAT flavor!

Ok, later I will share (and hopefully take pics) some of our favorite dinner recipes! As for snacking, my husband and I love a small apple with peanut butter or
grapes with a slice of string cheese!

Eating healthier will help you feel good throughout the day,
have more energy and hopefully start to see results!
Since our weather in Texas has FINALLY cooled down a bit...
a family walk, bike ride or jog is a perfect way for us to be together as a family after dinner!
