It’s always good to shake things up every once in awhile, and one of the simplest ways to do this is to toast your oats. It gives the grain a richer, more nutty flavor and helps the texture of the oatmeal to be less mushy.

Top it off with your favorite fruit and you’ve got yourself an amazingly delicious breakfast.

Italian Chopped Salad [Good Choice]

Every sub shop features an Italian hoagie thanks to the rich complex flavor of the ingredients. But Italian subs are not slimming, thanks to the bread. This salad however, packages up all that delicious flavor in one tasty and filling salad.

Slimming Tip: Skip the salami and you can save yourself some fat and calories.

Greek Lentil Casserole [Best Choice]

Two things make casseroles irresistible: 1) they’re easy to throw together and 2) everybody loves them. And this recipe just took the slimming casserole top spot. It’s easy to cook – in fact, you just toss it in the crockpot so it can cook while you’re sleeping (or working). And it’s Greek – feta cheese anyone?! It’ll definitely be a crowd pleaser at dinnertime this week.
