Pan Seared Tuna Patties Recipe – 4 Points +

Pan Seared Tuna Patties

These yummy, Pan Seared Tuna Patties are the perfect way to put a unique twist on the traditional tuna sandwich recipe. Just two of these tuna patties are only 4 Points +, which makes it an ideal Weight Watchers lunch. I served mine with a side of salsa, but next time, I’m going to melt some reduced fat cheddar over them for an added flavor boost. They were super easy to make too. They come out crisp and golden on the outside, and warm and soft on the inside. They made a great lunch for my 20 month old…a lot less messy than tuna salad! Loaded with protein and tons of flavor, these Pan Seared Tuna Patties are delicious, healthy and a great low Points meal. Enjoy!

Doing this is an incredibly helpful tool in getting you to your weight loss goals, and a recent study by the American Journal of Preventative Medicine found that people who keep a food diary enjoy twice the weight loss of those who rely solely on dieting and exercising.

It’s very easy to use — simply write down the food that you eat and its Points value, and then deduct it from your daily Points balance. You can even track your Flex Points used! I also included little check boxes that will help you make sure you are consuming your recommended portions of water, dairy and fruits & vegetables. Using this Weight Watchers Food Diary couldn’t be easier!

I hope you’ll find this daily food journal as helpful as I have and that it will help you stick to your Daily Points Range and be aware of what you are eating everyday.

Fried Fish Sandwich Recipe – 5 Point Value

Fried Fish Sandwich Recipe

Fried fish sandwiches are SO incredibly good. But typically, they are dripping with grease and loaded with extra and unnecessary fat and calories. So when I found this Weight Watchers Fish Sandwich Recipe for the Momentum Plan, I was really excited to give it a try! I made a few alterations to it, knocked a whole Point off the original recipe and added more fiber. And it turned out really, really GOOD!!! It’s technically not “fried” – it’s a baked fish sandwich recipe. But it delivers a very similar (if not, better) taste and has a LOT less fat and calories. Plus the fact that it packs in so much protein and fiber makes it an excellent Momentum Recipe to incorporate into your Weight Watchers New Year’s Diet Plan!
