Slow Cooker Pork and Beans

Pork and Beans-7125

Adapted from Taste of Home’s Diet Comfort Food cookbook this is one of my faves.  Only 217 calories.  We love to eat this with southern skillet cornbread.


  • 3 lb boneless pork loin
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 6 cans (15 oz) pork and beans
  • 3 cups barbecue sauce
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder


  • Cut roast in half and place in 5 qt. slow cooker.  You can also use pork shoulder roast.  Top with onion.
  • Combine beans, barbecue sauce, brown sugar and garlic powder in a large bowl.  Pour over meat.
  • Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or until meat is tender.
  • Remove roast and shred with two forks.  Return meat to slow cooker and heat through.

Yummy, Yummy for your tummy.

Boneless Buffalo Chicken Strips

Hot Wings-5817

Here’s a good one.  It’s hard to believe it’s 21 Day Fix Approved, but it is.


  • 12 oz chicken tenderloin (9 strips)…I used chicken breasts and cut them into pieces
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Frank’s Hot Sauce


  1. Combine garlic powder, paprika, chili powder and black pepper in a medium bowl.  Season chicken with spices and toss to evenly coat the chicken.
  2. Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet.  Over medium-high heat saute chicken until center is no longer pink.
  3. Pour the hot sauce over the chicken, tossing well.  Serve with celery sticks and carrots with either blue cheese dressing or ranch.

About 3 strips of tenders equals 1 Red and 1 tsp on the 21 Day Fix meal plan.
