This is delicious served warm on a cold, winter’s day!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 can pumpkin
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 or 3 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup sugar (I use 1/4 cup sugar & Stevia equivalent for nearly 1/2 cup sugar – 7 KAL spoonfuls)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Mix ingredients together.  Pour in a greased baking dish.  Bake in a preheated oven at 450 degrees for 20 minutes and then at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.  Let cool for 10-20 minutes and then eat while warm.

Good served with frozen vanilla yogurt or whipped cream.

Here’s an easy recipe that’s great when you’re short on time.  Cooking the turkey breast in the crock pot makes it so moist and tender, and I think maybe it’s the best we’ve ever had. And the great thing is that it’s so easy.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3-pound boneless turkey breast
  • Can of chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (or minced garlic)
  • 1/4 teaspoon of minced onion flakes (or onion slices)
  • Optional:  your favorite herbs can be added such as fresh rosemary in place of the garlic

In the sink or a large dish, cut the plastic bag off the turkey breast with kitchen shears and also cut off the netting.   There will be a lot of juices in the bag that will make a mess, so be sure to have something to catch the juices.  Then place the turkey with the above ingredients in the crock pot.   Cook on high for 2 hours and then on low for 6-8 hours.

Have you ever wanted to eat a certain number of ounces but the weight of the food was given in grams?  Just remember this:
 

  • 1 Ounce = 28.35 Grams

I round the grams to 28 to make it easier to remember.  So, if I want to eat three ounces of meat, then I multiply 3 x 28 which means I need approximately 84 grams of meat.  Sounds like a  lot when the meat is measured in grams!
