Reuben Casserole Recipe – 7 Points +

Reuben Casserole

For as long as I can remember, Reuben sandwiches have been one of absolute favorite deli sandwiches. But as tasty as they are, they are CRAZY high in Weight Watchers Points. Remembering a Reuben Casserole that my mom used to make, I decided to try and put a lighter twist on it and see if I could come up with a delicious reuben casserole that had the same flavor profile as the traditional sandwich, but was a lot lower in Points. It ended up being pretty easy to do, and my light reuben casserole was absolutely delicious! The only thing I might do differently next time, is use shredded swiss cheese instead of the slices, just for aesthetic purposes. But at least using the slices makes it really easy to divide the servings. :) If you love a good reuben sandwich, this Weight Watchers Reuben Casserole Recipe is a must try.

Red Cabbage Salad with Walnuts and Raisins – 4 Points +

Red Cabbage Salad with Walnuts and Raisins

My Red Cabbage Salad with Walnuts and Raisins is one of my good old reliable Weight Watchers Salad Recipes that I’ve relied on for whenever I need a pretty and tasty salad in just a few minutes. You get the crunch of the fresh cabbage combined with the sweet, chewy raisins, salty blue cheese, and the nutty walnuts, all just exploding with deliciousness in each bite. This salad also offers a great way to get in some heart healthy fats from the incredibly good for you walnuts. Each nicely sized serving is just 4 Points +, and it goes great paired with variety of meals. I’ll often add some chicken, hardboiled egg whites, and a slice of crumbled bacon if I want to bulk it up and have it as an entree salad. But it’s really versatile and works well with a variety of main courses. I highly recommend giving this cabbage salad a try!
