  1. There are points for the lentils & oil

  2. I have a question regarding the points calculation – It is 8 points if you just do a recipe analysis – but since it is all vegetables that are zero points and spices that are zero points – why are the points so high? I could understand if it had coconut milk or olives or something that was high density calories – but I don’t get why this very good for you curry is so high in points? What are your expert insights to this? I am not new to the WW+ plan , but still inexperienced with it in figuring out the system.
