I'm going to make these-MADE THIS AND IT SUCKS!

Dr. Oz's Butt-Busting Brownie

If you think brownies are off-limits when you’re trying to get fit, think again! 

This no-bake brownie is not your typical dessert. 

The cayenne revs up your metabolism to get your body moving and

 the cinnamon helps process sugar intake, which helps keep fat 

from being absorbed into your bottom. It’s a win-win!


1 cup raw cacao powder 
1/4 tsp cayenne 
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup low fat milk
1 cup organic raisins
1 cup oats

In a food processor purée the cacao, cayenne, cinnamon, milk and raisins until a smooth paste forms.
 Add the oats to the food processor and quickly pulse to incorporate them.
Transfer the mix into a square or rectangular container lined cross wise with wax paper.
 Press down to form the ‘brownie' base.
 Refrigerate until firm.
Cut into squares before serving. Enjoy!

This goes on sale at Caputos often- print it now .75/1

click HERE use zip 30303

This is so good and easy and HEALTHY (if you leave out the Blue Cheese, which we do)

Buffalo crock pot chili
 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup sliced carrots
1 cup sliced celery
1 cup chopped apple
1-28 oz can diced tomatoes (un-drained) I only use 1 can
1-15 oz. can black beans ( I use 2 cans, it's personal pref.)
1 cup chicken broth
2-teaspoons chili powder
1/2 cup Buffalo wing sauce or less depending how hot you like it~
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese (to sprinkle on before serving) I do not use this because the healthy recipe instantly becomes un-healthy!

Put all ingredients in crock pot EXCEPT wing sauce and cheese. Cook on high 4-6 hours, stir in Buffalo sauce at the end.

Okay I'm on a bit of a break from shopping, but Thursday will be great at Meijer!

I'll post what I buy at Meijer Thursday.
