Roasted Yellow Beets – 2 Points +

Roasted Yellow Beets

On a whim, my 5 year old recently picked out some yellow beets at the market, and said “Let’s cook these, mommy!” Who could say no to that?! And having always used red beets in my cooking, I was thrilled to try the yellow this time instead. Roasting beets is such an easy task, and the result is deliciously, sweet and tender beets that take on an entirely different flavor during the roasting process, as opposed to boiling them or eating them raw. I love serving them as a simple, yet deliciously nutritious side dish recipe with many meals, but I always roast extra and save them as salad toppers for later in the week. This roasted beets recipe is a simple version that really beings out the perfect, natural flavor of the beets. A little bit of lemon juice, coarse sea salt and drizzle of olive oil is all it needs…these are excellent!

Salt and Vinegar Chip Crusted Fish Recipe – 5 Points +

Salt and Vinegar Chip Crusted Fish Recipe

Oh, how I adore salt and vinegar potato chips. I have loved these since I was a kid, and I now consider myself a connoisseur of salt & vinegar chips. But being on the Weight Watchers program, I sadly have tried to avoid them, as most of the healthier versions aren’t flavorful enough and the tasty versions are too high in Points Plus and/or loaded with a bunch of awful artificial ingredients. But then, I discovered Kettle Brand Bakes Extra Crunchy Sea Salt & Vinegar Potato Chips, and I was in heaven. Seriously…they are perfection, and I am over the moon in love. And while my favorite way to enjoy them is straight out of the bag on a direct route into my belly, I’ve recently been incorporating them into some Weight Watchers Recipes too! One of the best is this Salt and Vinegar Chip Crusted Fish Recipe. The mild, flaky cod is covered in a crispy coating of these bold and tangy salt and vinegar chips, and the result is total perfection.

Turkey Taco Soup Recipe – 7 Points +

Turkey Taco Soup

A taco in liquid form, this delicious Turkey Taco Soup is so hearty and satisfying! Each huge serving is 7 Points +, making it a perfect Weight Watchers recipe that’s great for just about anytime. It reheats and freezes well, so I like to double the batch and keep a good supply in my freezer. Feel free to get creative with your toppings, and enhance the flavors even more by adding low fat sour cream, jalapeños, diced red onions, shredded lettuce, fresh cilantro or reduced fat tortilla chips on top. All the fiber and protein make this a very filling dish, but if you want to trim this down a Point or two, you can cut out 1 can of beans. It’s just as delicious either way. Enjoy!

Cheese, Onion, and Vegetable Egg White Frittata Recipe – 3 Points +

Cheese, Onion, and Vegetable Egg White Frittata

Frittata is such a fancy word for what it really is – basically, Italy’s version of an open faced omelet. And don’t let that fancy word fool you into thinking it’s some complicated dish, because it’s one of the easiest egg recipes ever. I love to make a frittata for breakfast, lunch, brunch, dinner…whatever! It’s easy delicious and very low in Points Plus. And it takes just minutes to make. To keep my version light, I use all egg whites. You can absolutely use whole eggs or Egg Beaters instead, if you prefer. I also use a good, reduced-fat sharp cheddar for some extra flavor. The wonderful flavor of the onions and vegetables make a perfect enhancement for the mild egg whites too. You can really use any veggies you want in this frittata, but I chose bell pepper rings and cherry tomato slices because I love the touch of acidity and flavor they add. But I love to mix it up all the time with whatever veggies I have on hand. This is a great Weight Watchers Easter Brunch Recipe idea!
