It's the time of year when we see new faces around here and those of us who have been here awhile find our way back to cleaner eating. There are a lot of great recipes here but I know I forget some of the old favorites. So let's share!

What are your favorites? If you can add a link that would be even better :)

Kalyn's soups work for me :)

Of course creamy Mexican Caserole and Wendy's Chili from the recipe boards are two of my favorite go to meals

I love the Savory bean and spinach soup (http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/crockpot-slow-cooker-phase-2/255537-savory-bean-spinach-soup.html). It's so easy. Just leave out the rice.

Just a few favorites around here: Stewed lentils (http://www.food.com/recipe/stewed-lentils-tomatoes-barefoot-contessa-377484), sausage and kale mock lasagna (http://www.kalynskitchen.com/2012/01/recipe-for-sausage-and-kale-mock.html) with extra veggies, buffalo ranch roasted chickpeas (http://kidtestedfirefighterapproved.com/2012/08/05/buffalo-ranch-roasted-chickpeas/)(have to have snacks!), hummus of all kinds, this black bean soup (http://blog.fatfreevegan.com/2006/10/stormy-black-bean-soup.html), and Kalyn's cauliflower crust pizza, Mexican baked eggs, and spicy seafood stew just for starters

I really like the bean muffins that were created by pearshape and are in the breakfast tab for a change from eggs for breakfast.

The taco bake is a fave for dinner. Also fireside white bean soup I think it is called. A lot of times tho I will just make simple things that aren't even listed such as:

Steamed spaghetti squash w marinara & 97% lean beef browned & added

Baked fish w lemon & herbs

Roasted chicken w skin removed

A lot of times the first couple days when I start back I don't have as much energy to execute a full-on recipe so I'll make a most basic thing first.

My favourite meal is meat balls (homemade, no bread crumbs) in nsa marinara with fresh parmeasan served with a caesar salad.

This time of year though, I can help but reach for chili, whether veggie or meaty.. all are delish and warming.

I love sauteed zucchini and onions with meatballs or LF turkey italian sausage on top and NSA marinara or bolognese sauce over it all...I am at the point where I love it so much I don't even crave pasta anymore while the family is eating it.

also love turkey chili or turkey tacos in lettuce leaves, plenty of hot sauce will help with my cravings!!

It's a tomato sauce with no salt added.
