I just purchased the complete ww cookbook (spiral bound) and so far that has been great.  also, in another similar post, someone posted the link to http://www.skinnytaste.com and I have used it a couple times already and found it to be awesome!

I don’t do weight watchers, but the Eat This Not That books have been a big help in figuring out what kinds of things to eat. You’d be surprised at some of the things that are good for you! They have a cookbook with tons of yummy recipes 🙂

The chicken taco slow cooker thing sounds great! How much chicken and salsa do you put in and for how long?

Yes–look up the Mashed “potatoes” with chives in the tracker. It’s not the same as mashed potatoes, but it’s still pretty good.

Also, if you don’t like vegetables, then consider buying one of those cookbooks about how to sneak in vegetables into your kids’ foods (I think Seinfeld’s wife did one)–that’s one way to help get in nutrients.

I was at a friends last night and she made a Mediterranean goat cheese dip out of a WW cookbook, It was awesome!  I just did a quick google thought and couldn’t find it to post for you.

Its not a WW recipe, but we eat well in my house and I just made for my FH some “mashed potatoes” half potatoes mixed with boiled cauliflower mashed together. it taste like the potatoes with way fewer calories and carbs and way more fiber!

@JennyW1: I know you say you dont like vegetables, but have you had all vegetables in all preperations? I find people who say that can usually find a few things they like. Like roasted red peppers, or roasted onions or marinated mushrooms etc etc. and then start there by incorporating them in your diet. Even homemade tomato sauce without added sugar and some shredded zuchinni and carrot so it disolves and you dont even know it is there.

@artbee: It’s funny that you say that you hate veggies & salads — b/c i was the same exact way before WW.  I wound up slowly trying things – for example eating a small salad before dinner & now i love it. The same w/ incorporating veggies into dinner (for example: making chicken fajitas andletting peppers & onions marinate forever with the chicken)… slowly little by little i’m actually enjoying some of these things… but in the meantime: This pulled chicken is probably one of my faves. perfect to take to lunch and reheat on a ff roll.  http://www.weightwatchers.com/food/rcp/index.aspx?recipeid=115291

Here are some of my go-to WW blogs/sites.  They have all kinds of different foods.  I’m sure that you’ll find some great recipes that you like.  Best of luck!~

I second the Hungry Girl website. She does a newsletter where she tells you the points plus values in restaurant foods and starbucks which is pretty cool.  Also, she’s a huge fan of certain products such as Laughing Cow cheese and Shirataki tofu noodles which I both love now!

@artbee: The baked eggplant parmesean with whole grain pasta is amazing – we half the pasta and honestly, the eggplant is awesome alone.  You could do it with summer squash, too. 

 

The Senagalese peanut and sweet potato stew is also fantastic, but my recommendation with that is to omit the spinach (doesn’t add any flavor, just wilts and turns grey ick!) and if you can, make it the day before.  I also add a serano pepper for a kick.  It’s amazing the day after.

The skinny taste web site recipe for tuna noodle cassarole is great – I’m making it tonight! 

One of the things I do to make mashed potatoes is to also add celeriac to it – makes to taste earthy and bulks it up.
