Just tested out an awesome recipe - tastes amazing, def adding to my dinner rotation. Enjoy.

Low Calorie Teriyaki Chicken
580 calories, 28 grams protein per serving,
4 servings

4 chicken breast - skinless and cut into 1 inch chunks
2 cups rice
1tbs cornstarch
1tbs cold water
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup (apple)cider vinegar
1tsp garlic powder
1tbs olive oil

1. Heat olive oil in large pan. Add chicken and cook until no longer pink.
2. In a small sauce pan combine cold water, corn starch, brown sugar, garlic, vinegar, and soy sauce. Stir until there are no lumps. Bring to boil. You will see light brown swirls on top, this means it is done.
3. Once chicken is done cooking, add the heated sauce to the chicken pan and stir over chicken. Cook on lowest heat setting for 30 seconds, stirring.
4. Let sauce and chicken sit until it thickens, about two to five minutes.
5.. Serve over rice and enjoy!

If cooking for only two use 2 chicken breast and cut all ingredients in half.

Healthy Pumpkin Muffins

you will need:

2 cups pumpkin puree
1 cup rolled oats (I had quick oats on hand, but you can use either)
2 cups white or wheat flour (or 1 cup of each)
1 1/2 cups sugar. (you can use less. I may only use one cup next time. and will probably experiment with brown sugar)
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp salt
2/3 cup applesauce (this was supposed to be oil, but applesauce is better for you)
3 eggs

Mix all ingredients together (the batter will be thick) pour into ,greased, muffin pans (makes 24 muffins)
Bake for 20-25 minutes. (Mine were done after 20 minutes)

Enjoy!

Molasses bran muffins

1 cup Bob's Red Mill wheat bran
1.5 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup dried fruit (I didn't have any, so I added 1/2 cup oats)
1 tsp. Baking soda
1 tsp. Baking powder
1 cup milk (I used 2 percent)
1/2 cup molasses (or honey)
3/4 cup applesauce (unsweetened)
1/4 chopped nuts (if desired...I omitted)
2 Tbsp. Oil
2 eggs, beaten

Mix dry ingredients together in large bowl.
Whisk wet ingredients in bowl until well combined. Add to dry and stir until well moistened. Bake in 400 degree oven about 15-20 minutes.

Soooooo good and only around 100 calories (depending on what you add)!
