This salad isn’t just beautiful – it’s delicious too. I just had to try this Strawberry Poppyseed Vinaigrette, and the combination of arugula and berries seemed like the perfect place. I’m so glad I did, it was wonderful. The vinaigrette is incredibly easy to make – just stick everything in the blender. I ended up with plenty leftover. If you’re looking to make this a main dish for lunch or dinner, just add a half a chicken breast for protein. You can also mix arugula and spinach instead of just arugula. Give this salad a try, you won’t be disappointed.
Breakfasts are wonderful at our house. Although, to be perfectly honest, during the week we just find our own simple breakfasts, but on Saturday, all bets are off. We’ll have pancakes, waffles, scrambled eggs, sausage or omelets. Omelets make a wonderful meal – breakfast or dinner. Add any ingredients you have on hand for omelet fillings – onions, peppers, zucchini, tomatoes, basil, cheese, ham and bacon are all wonderful fillings. Enjoy this delightful ham and veggie omelet for a filling and delicious breakfast.
Stuffed peppers were always a staple in my house, growing up. My mom usually made them once every other week, and I can still remember the taste of that delicious beef and rice filling! My healthier version consists of a quinoa and ground chicken filling. It’s mixed with a tangy tomato sauce, seasoned with Italian herbs and topped with a bit of mozzarella cheese. It’s delicious, filling, and just 7 Points + for 2 stuffed pepper halves! And I have to say, it is SOOOOO good. Even better than the one my mom makes — but please don’t tell her that. :) My kids love it too which is a HUGE plus. I also love how quick and easy this is to prepare, so it’s great for a busy weeknight dinner. I usually pair this with some fresh roasted vegetables and or a salad for a complete meal.
Summer is in full swing, and I’m all about healthy and delicious Weight Watchers Grilling Recipe that are quick and easy! This Roasted Garlic Cilantro Shrimp Recipe is just the ticket – it’s so fresh and light, yet absolutely bursting with flavor. The roasting of the garlic adds such a wonderful, slightly sweet taste to the sauce, so make sure to NOT skip that step! It’s a bit of extra work, but totally worth it. I also like to take the extra sauce and serve it on the side for dipping, or spoon it over some fresh Italian bread, then place face down on the grill – so incredibly good. For this recipe, I used my cast iron grill pan, but a regular outdoor grill works just as well. Enjoy!
I love gardens. It’s so wonderful to be able to grow and garden and go out to get fresh produce when you want to make something. Rhubarb is growing really well this time of year, and what goes together better than strawberries and rhubarb? Thankfully, fresh strawberries are also ripe this time of year, so it’s perfect. I made my rhubarb sauce fresh, but I make a huge batch and then can it, so I can have it all year on pancakes, ice cream and steel cut oats. However, it’s wonderful fresh and stores well in the fridge.
Lately, I just cannot resist buying those colored carrots at the market. They are so pretty, and my kids think it’s super fun getting colored carrots in their lunch box. So I’m always looking for fun ways to use them in new Weight Watchers Recipes. And this easy Rainbow Carrot Salad Recipe, is not only lovely and delicious, but it comes out to just 1 Points + per serving! So light and refreshing, it makes a perfect healthy side dish salad that pairs well with a variety of main courses. Sometimes, I throw in a handful of golden raisins, or shredded green apple for and extra kick! Enjoy.
This recipe was shared with me and it sounded so good that I just had to try it. It’s a delicious twist to the traditional roast chicken. Citrus works so well with chicken, that this is a wonderful addition to any roast chicken. Cooking the chicken and the potatoes is an easy way to have most of the meal prepared in one dish. If you’re someone who doesn’t like the twiggy rosemary – use the same amount of thyme instead. It’ll be just as delicious. I used a whole chicken for this dish, since that’s what I had on hand. It works well with either a whole chicken, or chicken pieces like thighs or legs.
Quinoa is one of my favorite grains. It’s naturally gluten free, so it’s something I know I can always eat. It’s packed with nutrients and protein, and has a delicious nutty flavor. I cook mine in my rice cooker with chicken broth (for a little added flavor), and then store the leftovers for a quick and easy lunch. This caprese quinoa is delicious and perfect for a lunch, since you don’t have to cook it. I also love to do a Mexican quinoa with corn, black beans, avocado, red onion and some lime vinaigrette. I’ll also do an citrus chicken quinoa or quinoa tabbouleh. Having quinoa for lunch is perfect for me, since my husband isn’t a huge fan, and it’s so simple for a weekday lunch. You can cook this on the stove, or in a rice cooker. Cook it just like rice, but if you use chicken broth in place of water, it adds a little more flavor. As a side note, I left my basil whole (since I thought it photographed better), but the recipe calls for it to be chiffonade (finely sliced), which adds a better flavor to the dish. For this, make sure to use fresh mozzerella in this recipe, the flavor is much better.
The dilemma is all too familiar….Orange Chicken…it’s DELICIOUS. But, it’s deep fried and then smothered in an indescribable sweet/sour/spicy/orange-y sauce. Therefore, it’s laden with extra fat, calories, and Weight Watchers Points, and we all try to avoid it. But we can’t. Because it’s sooooooo GOOOOOOOOD. And if you are a vegetarian, the smell of this entree alone is enough to make you reconsider not eating meat. What are we to do? After dealing with this dilemma on a regular basis, I decided to get experimental. And after a few Pinterest inspiration searches, and a few recipe trials and errors, the end result is this delicious Orange Cauliflower, a vegetarian’s version of orange flavored chicken. By subbing out the chicken with cauliflower florets, you still get all the flavors you love, but in a much healthier package. And for those of you who don’t like vegetables, this Weight Watchers Recipe is a FANTASTIC way to eat them! It tastes NOTHING like cauliflower. And while it doesn’t taste exactly the same as the restaurant version, it’s pretty spectacular. So for all you orange chicken junkies out there, and for you vegetarians who’ve always wanted to eat it, this Weight Watchers Orange Cauliflower is your ticket. Just 4 Points Plus per serving, too! Enjoy.
