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.

Chicken Bacon Ranch Pasta Recipe – 6 Points +

Chicken Bacon Ranch Pasta

This Chicken Bacon Ranch Pasta tastes so unbelievably good, it’ll be hard to believe that each serving is just 6 Points +. I mean, come on….look at the title of the dish…Chicken. Bacon. Ranch. Pasta. What’s not love here?!? The creamy, ranch flavored cheese sauce brings together the flavors of the crisp, salty bacon and the juicy chicken breast, which is sautéed in a bit of bacon drippings. DELICIOUS, I tell you! Yes, this dish “costs” a bit more than I’d like at 6 Points + for a 1 cup serving, but it is so heavenly, I feel like I’m being bad, and, well, that makes me feel pretty good. :) Increase your serving size, if you’d like, and make this a 4 serving recipe and then each serving would be 9 Points +. If you pair this Weight Watchers pasta recipe with some 0 Points roasted veggies and a very light salad, then this would be an amazing, guilt free meal!

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!

Enlighten your tastebuds with this incredible Garlic Shrimp Linguine Recipe! This was seriously SO GOOD, I did not want to stop eating it. The wonderful simplicity of the ingredients allows each element to shine through and add it’s own flavor boost. In one bite, you’ll get the taste of the lemony garlic shrimp, the peppery basil, and the slightly sweet and tangy sun dried tomatoes. And the red pepper chili flakes turn up the heat just a tad. It was truly a mouthful of perfection. The next time I make this, I’m going to have to double it so I can have leftovers. Even my kids ate some (though they did push aside the shrimp), and my son asked for seconds! So happy to share this amazing Weight Watchers pasta recipe with you all…it’s a MUST try.

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!

Buffalo Chicken Meatballs Recipe – 4 Points +

Buffalo Chicken Meatballs

The only food other than pizza that I absolutely obsess over, is buffalo chicken wings. Mostly, it’s the sauce that I crave, and I will pretty much eat buffalo chicken flavored anything. I simply CANNOT resist. So at home, I love to experiment with new buffalo chicken recipes that are delicious but still Weight Watchers friendly. Recently, I whipped up some of these Buffalo Chicken Meatballs and they were truly out of this world! So easy to make, and a lot less messy than wings! Plus each 4 meatball serving was only 4 Points +! I actually made these for my husband and I for dinner one night, so I made 24 large meatballs. You can make this into a low calorie mini meatball appetizer recipe by forming the meat mixture into 36-40 mini meatballs instead of 24. Serve them with toothpicks, and they will for sure be a guaranteed hit at any party! While Frank’s Red Hot Sauce is my hot sauce of choice for this Weight Watchers Recipe, feel free to use any kind you’d like, as long as it has no fat or carbs like Frank’s. If you are a fan of buffalo chicken wings, I highly recommend giving this Buffalo Chicken Meatballs Recipe a try immediately!

Cabernet Beef Pot Roast Recipe – 4 Points +

Cabernet Beef Pot Roast

There’s something about pot roasts that just take me back to my childhood and coming in from a chilly fall day to the aroma of a juicy, tender roast in the oven. As a Weight Watchers member, I try to avoid red meat most of the time due to it being higher in Points Plus and higher in cholesterol. But every now and then, I reward myself, and this Cabernet Beef Pot Roast Recipe is a perfect treat. The key in this dish is REALLY getting that roast trimmed of fat. I usually have the butcher trim it for me at the store, then I spend about 10 minutes going over it really well myself and trimming as much fat as possible. Occasionally, I’ll find some really good lean, pre-packaged ones at the store that don’t need trimming at all – like the one I used for this post. And the bonus is that the nutritional stats of the meat were on the label, so I was able to see how much fat was in the meat. The one I used had just 3.5g of fat per 4oz, which was AWESOME. The roast is seasoned and then braised in a red wine broth. It’s very simple, allowing for the true flavor of the beef to shine through. I’m thrilled to have found a healthy pot roast recipe that allows me to enjoy red meat more often!
