    I'm a HUGE fan of this website: www.eatingwell.com I also get the magazine.

    I made the vegetarian lasagna in a crockpot. Yes, lasagna. :happy:
    And no, the noodles were not purchased pre-cooked and were whole wheat. :bigsmile:

    I make a lot of crock pot meals, but this is one of the most filling, easy and healthy I've made thus far.

    Good luck on your journey. :happy:

    this is my favorite recipe when i'm short on time but still don't want to heat up the oven. it takes 2-4 hours in my crockpot depending on what setting i have it on. also we only put 1/2 tsp of chili powder, the 1 tblsp is WAY too much for us! and i usually add in some chopped up bell peppers. it's vegetarian so it's pretty low cal but you can add some ground beef or turkey if you want.

    I like curry beans, vegetables, and chicken. I don't usually measure when I cook but here are my guesstimates:

    1 cup dry black beans
    1 onion, 8 oz diced mushrooms, 1 bell pepper - all diced & pan sauteed
    4 finely diced celery stalks
    2 oz boneless skinless chicken
    jamaican curry powder (add 1 or 2 hours before the end)
    black pepper
    chicken broth cube
    salt to taste

    put pot on low for about 5 or 6 hours. If not done to your liking, keep checking & cook & season as you like. sometimes I dump in some diced spinach with the other veggies.

    I am supper excited about these recipes. Just got my crockpot for Christmas. I will also be starting at 21 day fast starting Jan8 (as I do at the begining of the year, for the last 3 years) Spiritual reasons but of course i reap the added benefits of weight loss.

    So these recipes are awesome, my first week will be no sweets, no meats, not bread, second week I can add one type of meat . I think I will go with turkey., But still no sweets, or breads, and then the third week I probably will no back to no meats, sweets or bread.
