I have always been a huge fan of Gardein’s amazing lineup of meat free products, but I practically did backflips when I recently found there Beefless Sliders and their new Crispy Chick’n Sliders. These entirely vegan sliders taste absolutely amazing, and with the bun included they are only 4 Points Plus for the faux beef sliders and 5 Points Plus for the faux chicken sliders!

We’ve been having some lovely weather over the past few weeks, so I convinced my husband to bust out the grill and cook up some of these Thai-inspired Cilantro Grilled Chicken Breasts for me. This is such a simple low calorie marinade recipe that adds such tremendous flavor and moisture to the chicken.

Chicken Fajitas have always been a family favorite around here. My son loves assembling his own fajita, and I love that he’s eating something so healthy. To make this dish Weight Watchers friendly, I made a few adjustments to how the dish is cooked, but I also put together a tomato, lime, and garlic topping to use instead of sour cream or guacamole.

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve enjoyed traditional BBQ faire, and coleslaw was always my favorite. But then when I learned that it’s a mayo based dressing and LOADED with fat, calories and cholesterol, I was disappointed. As a Weight Watchers member, I knew that I’d have to seriously limit my coleslaw intake.

Creamy, crunchy, flavorful and low calorie, this Corn Salad Recipe with Red Pepper and Dill has just about everything you’d want in a salad. You get the sweetness of the corn, the crunch of the bell peppers, and then a bit of crunchy tang from the pickles. It’s such a delicious and unique corn recipe that makes a very Weight Watchers side dish to go with a huge variety of meals.
