Let’s have a Healthy Day

Manic Monday Meals-1

As many of you know by now I’m really trying hard to make our meals better with calories and watch what I put in my mouth (and the amount I shovel in Winking smile).

Every morning I make Cole something warm to start him off, the other morning he asked for Blueberry Pancakes so I whipped these up.  They were very yummy and great with the applesauce and whole wheat.  The boys ate them right up.

<p>I love to send my son off to school with a good breakfast, but I don&#8217;t want to have anything to heavy or high in fat. This is the perfect blend of yummy breakfast &#38; Low Cal.</p>

Next for dinner I threw this 3 Bean Turkey Chili in the Crockpot.  Yes this is from my favorite site SkinnyTaste!  This was a very yummy chili that I paired with a low fat cornbread.  Cole loves chili and came back for 2 bowls Smile.

  3. Yummy the pancake looks like a heart.. Love the apples. Have a great day..

  4. Ohhh! All 3 are favorites! We LOOOOVE blueberry pancakes at our house. They work for EVERY meal. I'll have to try this version of it.

    And that apple crisp...mmmm...I can smell it now!

    I was just thinking this morning that when I put "personal growth" on my new Year's resolution list I wasn't talking about my arse!

  5. that chilli looks ahhh-mazz-ing!
    i LOVE chilli!!

  6. I am definitely going to try the pancakes and the chili!!! Yum!

  7. I love pancakes! As you know I'm trying to stay away from desserts (and failing).

    It was one of those weekends for me, too. I guess they all are.

  8. I like subbing with applesauce too. You can't even tell the difference. Your recipes look great!

  9. Blueberry pancakes are one of my favorite breakfasts! I like your recipe. I am the same way I always want them to have something warm in the morning. even if they want cereal I always add a warm dish to go with it. Blessings, Joanne

  10. Everything looks delicious. Healthy is the best way to go!

  11. Everything looks great. I try to do healthy when I can, although you can't tell this from the recipes I post lol. My family hates turkey and anything whole wheat besides bread. I always mix it up while baking which I don't do often.

  12. The three bean chili looks good. Im glad you are a tukey fan. I love turkey,but there seems to be so many people who dont. It has great flavor.

  13. Good job! Everything looks delicious! Thanks for the WW points. I am trying to get back to it!!
