Crock pot (slow cooker) Applesauce Recipe

My good friend Stephanie over at The Mommy Place  posted a recipe for crock pot applesauce awhile back. Since I can eat everything in it while on my cleanse I decided to make some today. 

Here is her recipe:

  • 10 lg. apples, peeled, cored & cut in chunks (we buy organic)
  • 1/2 c. water
  • 3 + tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 to 1 c. sugar (optional)I'll be making it without sugar or possibly substituting Organic Raw Blue Agave instead. 

Put all ingredients into your crockpot. It should end up being about 3/4 full.
Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or on high for 3 to 4 hours if you are in a hurry. 

Although I'm doing pretty well as far as cravings are concerned I'm thinking this will appease my sweet tooth if/when it shows up.  

So, I know you're just dieing to know how my cleanse is going thus far? The short answer: great. 

But, if you know me at all the short answer is never enough for me *smile*. As mentioned yesterday I had a terrible headache on day 1. Yesturday was much better. I discovered though I'm going to need more protien then I was eating. I was W.I.P.E.D. out! Being wiped out for me means not being a very nice mommy. So, while the idea of not having much protien sounds good it's just not gonna work for this nursing mommy. Once I ate some eggs I was doing much better. 

This morning I woke up with another headache but once I drank a smoothie it was gone. For lunch I decided to make an omlette. Having never made an omlette before it turned out more like scrambled eggs with veggies. It was delish though!! Nothing fancy but....
Heres how I made it:

2 eggs
1/2 green pepper, diced
1/2 tomato, diced
1 carrott, grated
sea salt to taste

I just ended up scrambling it all up together. Now I'm wondering why I've never thought to do that before! It was so good!

Last night my sweet husband encouraged me to weigh myself. I really didnt want to, didn't want to get discouraged if I hadn't lost any, but I did. I've lost 3 1/2 pounds since I weighed in on Tuesday night! My clothes don't really feel any looser but apparently I have indeed lost some! Yippe! It makes it all worth it if I'm already seeing some results!   

Tonight we're going to dinner at a friends so I'll be bringing roasted red potatos and carrots! I'll post the recipe once I've modified it to something I can have.


  1. I'm just getting around to reading some comments from the UBP and checking out blogs...yep, I'm slow! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Congrats on the weight loss! That is an awesome start... Gonna have to try the recipe - sounds good!

  3. My local fruit stand sold me a bunch of beautiful apples for 59 cents a pound. I was going to search for a crockpot applesauce recipe today!

    I left you an award on my blog:
