Since I’ve started weight watchers, instead of trying to figure out the point value of dinner I just use a weight watchers recipe instead which tells me the exact serving size and the point value. It’s super convenient, and I love e-tools recipe finder, but let’s be serious, THERE ARE SO MANY FREAKING RECIPES!!!!!! Usually Sunday morning I figure out what I’ll be making that week, print the recipes out, compile my grocery list, etc. but sometimes it is hard for me to just pick what I want to make that week!
So do you guys have a favorite weight watchers recipe? Or just a favorite recipe that you’ve already calculated the points for? Please share!
PS – last night I made “Chicken and Sausage Gumbo” (the one that is 4 servings and 7 points per serving) and it was DELICIOUS!!!!! Not only was it delicious, it was SUPER easy (it uses a frozen mix of veggies instead of having to chop up veggies on your own). I totally recommend it, and look forward to eating left overs for dinner!

I’m not on weight watchers but I make this regularly. SO good, and good for you. And it freezes well (we only need 2 servings at a time, not 9!). I made it for my friend who is on weight watchers and froze it so she could eat it whenever she wants, and she loved it.

when im in a rush, i use those veggie steamers and grill chicken up and mix it together with some rice! (they have steamers with rice and veggies too!!) the points values are diff for each one but they are quick and easy! and since fi and i work diff schedules its great for me to be able to just whip something together in 10 minutes.

The Weight Watchers baked eggplant parm with whole grain spaghetti is really good (the one where you bake the oatmeal-coated eggplant slices). It’s excellent.
I also (try) to plan our dinners for the wdeek and I figure out my own serving size and assume my FH will eat the rest (which he will). Sundays I tend to cook bigger meals – fish for him, chicken for me, veggies, starch, etc.
Some things like pasta and veggie burgers and veggie tacos (I make a salad) are staples for us. Even naan pizza is a WW friendly recipe if you put it in your recipe builder…

I do a lot of the cookinglight.com dinners. I print them out and if they don’ turn out well (in that my FI will not eat them and he eats everything) I throw the paper away and never make it again. I also add cheese or butter to his as of course he looks great!
