WHOLESOME PUMPKIN SPICE COOKIES - I came up with this recipe while trying to find a cookie that was not only 17DD friendly but one my diabetic DH could eat. My elderly mother who is thin, and can eat any kind of sweets, stashed 1 dozen away for herself!
I used leftover yams as a substitute for the pumpkin.

Winning Recipe from The Biggest Loser Tues November 8/11
Slimmer Slaw & Pork Medallions
The Black Team's winning recipe
This tasty, satisfying pork dish that comes in at only 210 calories per serving.
For the pork:
1 pound trimmed pork tenderloin
Olive oil spray (propellant free)
Garlic powder, to taste
Sea salt, to taste
Fresh ground black pepper, to taste
For the dressing:
1/4 cup + 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
2-1/2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
4 teaspoons nonfat Greek yogurt (the contestants used Fage)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste
Fresh ground black pepper, to taste
For the slaw:
2 cups shredded green cabbage
2 cups shredded red cabbage
2 cups bite-size red bell pepper strips (about 2 small peppers)
1-1/2 cups bite-size yellow bell pepper strips (about 1 medium pepper)
1/2 cup snap peas, thinly sliced on the diagonal
1/2 cup seeded, chopped cucumber
1 cup grape tomatoes (about 20 tomatoes), halved
Preheat a grill to high heat.
Lightly mist the tenderloin with the olive oil spray and season it with garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
Grill the tenderloin for 3 to 5 minutes on the 3 faces until it is just barely pink in the center (or a thermometer inserted in the center reads 160°F). Remove it to a cutting board or platter and tent it with foil. Let stand for 5 minutes. Then slice it into 1/2"-thick pieces.
In a small mixing bowl, whisk the vinegar, sesame oil, and yogurt until well combined. Whisk in the salt and season with pepper.
Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, toss the cabbages, peppers, peas, cucumber, and tomatoes with the dressing. Divide the slaw among 4 dinner plates, mounding it to one side of the plate.
If using, in a small microwave-safe bowl, mix the cranberry sauce and ginger. Microwave on medium power for 30 seconds, or until the sauce is slightly melted and warm.
Fan one-quarter of the pork slices next to the slaw on the empty portion of each plate. Spoon 1 tablespoon sauce on the side of each, if desired.

Soft-Serve Banana Ice Cream
Frozen bananas rival soft serve when given a whirl in the food processor. My brother and boyfriend loved this treat! Trust me, it's AMAZING: no fat, no cholesterol, no added sugar, just creamy and sweet bananas!
4 frozen bananas
Place frozen bananas in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse several times to break into smaller pieces, then turn on and run for about five minutes, stopping occasionally to scrape down the sides of the bowl. The bananas will start to resemble soft serve in a few minutes. Transfer to a bowl and place in freezer for about 15 minutes, if you'd like, or serve immediately.
I topped mine with a tablespoon of pure maple syrup mixed with 2 t dark cocoa powder (calories not included).

slightly pink) in the middle. Add in the garlic near the end, to prevent it from burning.

Chicken Salad Wraps
1 C finely chopped celery
1 C finely chopped grapes
1 C finely chopped green apple
1/2 C chopped green onion
3 Large boneless/skinless chicken breasts (grilled, broiled or baked then diced)
1/2 C to 1 C fat free mayonnaise (depending on how creamy you want it)

2 T parsley
1 T oregano
1 T basil
1 T onion powder
1 T garlic powder
Salt/Pepper to taste (EASY on the salt!)
Whole Wheat Tortillas
Mix the celery, onion, grapes, apples and chicken in a large bowl. In a small bowl combine the mayonnaise and vinegar with the herbs and spices. If the dressing is too thick, add some water or fat-free milk until you like the consistency. Pour the dressing over the chicken and veggies/fruits and mix well.
Serving size is approx 1 cup (recipe makes several good servings) placed in a whole wheat tortilla... wrap and enjoy!
One serving is approximately 300 calories (that's the high estimate)
Asian Chicken Wraps
3/4 c chopped mushrooms
1 can water chestnuts drained and chopped
1T grated fresh ginger
Cook 4 minutes then add about 8 - 10 oz leftover cooked chicken (or 1 very large chicken breast cooked and diced - sorry I rarely measure). Heat thru.
Sauce -Whisk together 2Tbl Seasoned Rice vinegar, 2Tbl teryaki sauce, 1Tbl low sodium soy sauce, 1/2tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp, crushed red pepper, 1 1/2 tsp, olive oil.
Take a bostom lettuce leaf like a cup and add the chicken mixture. Top with some julienned green onions, shredded carrots, and slivered toasted almonds.
Drizzle sauce on top.
Low fat Toasted Muesli - top with fresh fruit and yogurt It's the only "cereal" I like.
handful unroasted almonds
some sesame seeds (couple of tablespoonsor more it's up to you)
unsalted sunflower seeds shelled - handful
unsalted pumpkin seeds - handful
handful of flaked coconut (preferably unsweetened)
2T extra light olive oil
1/2 c apple juice
Stir everything together and roast on a cookie sheet for 30 minutes at 350 degrees, stirring every 10 minutes until toasted. Vary ingredients (except oats) to taste. I like coconut so I added extra of that. It's not very sweet so if you like sweet cereals drizzle in a little agave (maybe 1T?).
You can also add a little milk to the yogurt. It's really good with fresh raspberries mixed into the yogurt.

Oatmeal Cookie Muffin/Bars (C2) [Revised by Simmie]
2 scoops vanilla whey protein powder (sugar free)
¾ cup whole wheat flour
2 cups uncooked oats
10 pkts truvia (equivalent to 20 tsp of sugar) Stevia Extract: 7 tsp
2.5 cups unsweetened applesauce
2 tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking powder
3 Tbsp olive oil [to make them more moist]
350 oven for 25 minutes 12 muffins
Each muffin or bar: (see my math info at the bottom of the next page) (these are 17 Day Diet values)
148.5 calories ½ natural starch ½ fruit 1/3 fat
BE SURE to use muffin pan liners – batter is very wet.
Simmie note: I had a LOT of trouble getting the muffin pan liners separated from the muffins; the next time I do these, what I may do is grease and flour the muffin pans and not use liners.
To make BARS:
This can be made in a 6x9 baking pan and cut into bars. Per Alice, bake 20-25 minutes. Be sure and spray baking pan with Pam spray to prevent sticking. These may good sized bars and with the addition of the oil, they are very moist. BE SURE to FREEZE tho.
These MUST be frozen – too much applesauce to leave them out; otherwise, they will grow mold after 24-48 hours.
They’re great when removed from the freezer and microwaved long enough to defrost (between 45 seconds and 1 minute). Some have heated them up and put vanilla yogurt on top for a nice treat further into the day beyond breakfast.
