I know, actual cooked quinoa IN the muffins... but really give them try, it's great way to add some whole grains into your diet. It's also best to make sure you cook the quinoa well so that it's not too moist and sticky.
Strawberries were on sale so I bought a bunch and have been trying lots of different ways to make them. The kids weren't sure what to make of these but in the end they enjoyed them. I actually couldn't get a picture of them because my 4 year old took the container out of the fridge (and knocked them about!) before I got a photo.
"Cabbage Soup Diet" many trips to the bathroom, but you can lose weight on this. I have the entire 7 day diet plan for this posted here in the Special Diets Forum in the Talk Area of Recipezaar: http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=12206
These are the HEALTHY brownies from Jessica Seinfeld's new book, Deceptively Delicious. She made them on Oprah last week and they looked great. The only change here is I made them with a mixture of wheat & white flour instead of oat flour and I used butter instead of trans fat free margarine as the original recipe calls for because that's what I have in my kitchen! To puree veggies, I used microwave then ran through the food processer. I would guess about 1 1/4 cups of carrots made the 1/2 cup puree and almost a whole bag of pre-washed baby spinach for the spinach puree. They are not overly sweet OR chocolatey but for being healthy, they are not bad! My 11 year old just came in and said YUM, BROWNIES!
My husband's favorite turkey patties--and mine too! Good served with a green salad and baked potatoes. Be sure to use freshly ground pepper in these, as it makes a big difference. (Slightly adapted from a recipe on allrecipes.com.)
