Healthy Kitchen MashUp!

So on one of my last posts I mentioned eating healthy while not going broke,  … so here we are

I was making a soup for my mom, using here “prepper” food, when I thought, hmmmm, cornbread muffins would be good with this!

I looked up a couple of low carb recipes and they call for all sorts of expensive flours, which I don’t have.

Soooo, I went to my pantry, pulled out my oats, and blended 1 cup of them.  Then I pulled up a standard recipes for Corn Muffins….

  • 1 Cup flour = 3/4 of my standard flour mix (right now consists of mostly white and wheat with a little soy) and 1/4 cup of my just blended oat flour
  • 1 Cup Corn Meal = 3/4 corn meal 1/4 just blended oat flour
  • 2 tblsp Flax meal = need those fibers to lower the carb count
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt = couple grinds (to much salt is not good for you)
  • 1/4 cup oil = 1 blended apple (peel and all)
  • 1 egg –
  • 1 cup milk = had non-fat in fridge that is what I used
  • I had some corn on the cob left over from a BBQ so I cut off the kernels and added them 🙂
  • Pour in muffin pan
  • Cook 400 11-17 minutes

Well, Yummy, they aren’t to sweet (next time I may add some honey) but they are good with a nice texture and you can eat 2 for 6 WW points…because really, who eats just 1???

So a nice healthy muffin without spending a fortune!

WW tips – potato

so I love potatoes, some I got a bag of the small fingerling ones,   for breakfast I cut one up and fried it, plus an egg.

Only 2 pts, it is still big enough for my potato craving, but small enough not to use up a bunch of points!

You can also add to soup or make up small batch of potato salad without using lots of points!

WW + kitchen toys = Delish!

HA…..I love the WW app, the bar code scanner is a life saver!

The other day I spiralized some butternut squash, and yam, zero pts, then I put them on the T-Fal grill and made hash browns out of them.  Boo freaking YAH!

Grilled up some tofu (3 oz) 2 pts and goat cheese (3oz) 3pts, in skillet, warmed up some flatbread 1pt, and nice breakfast for 6pts.

In case you are wondering, on points system I have 30 daily points and 28 weekly (oops) points.  The daily reset every day to 30, the 28 don’t, they reset weekly.
