In this installment of 'Junk Food to Joy Food,' Joy Bauer lightens up Rice Krispies Treats and chicken enchiladas. See below for Joy's take on Rice Krispies Treats — that favorite after-school special. Her version gets a boost of nutrition when you use popcorn instead of the usual rice cereal. The whole-grain popcorn adds fiber and volume to give your treat more staying power.
When it's time to plan dinner, head over to Joy's website for the recipe for her low cal but seriously satisfying take on chicken enchiladas — the slow cooker does most of the work, so they're so easy. Let the filling for the enchiladas simmer to perfection during the day. When you come home, it’ll take mere minutes to roll tortillas with the juicy shredded chicken, add enchilada sauce, and melt the cheese to ooey-gooey awesomeness.
