When I found this Weight Watchers Beef Stew Recipe for the crock pot, I literally was drooling. Though I initially thought it was just a traditional beef and vegetable stew recipe, it’s actually a classic Jewish recipe for Tzimmes!

Weight Watchers Crock Pot Recipes are my favorite recipes to make…they are SO easy and taste SO amazingly good. And they are low in Weight Watchers Points, so it helps keep me on track to reach my weight loss goals. This fabulously yummy Canadian Bacon and Potato Chowder Slow Cooker Recipe is a perfect addition to any Weight Watcher Meal Plan. With just 4 Points per serving and tons of fiber and protein, it’s very filling, so you won’t be so hungry a few hours later. What I like to do with these crock pot recipes is separate out the individual portions and freeze them, that way, when I need a meal really fast and am too lazy to make anything, I can easily reheat one of these servings for a quick and tasty meal. This particular dish tastes really good reheated because the flavor of the bacon just oozes into the creamy broth…mmmmm!! This Potato and Bacon Stew Recipe is really so delicious that the whole family will love it — and they’ll have no idea it’s a Weight Watchers Recipe! Enjoy.
Who doesn’t love a rich and hearty beef stew? Unfortunately, the average beef stew recipe is loaded with excess fat and calories and is pretty much off the menu when it comes to dieting. But for a tasty, yet diet-friendly beef stew, try this beef stew crock pot recipe. So fast and easy to make! And the great thing is, this “manly meal”, is sure to satisfy any hungry fellow, but he’ll never know that it’s a low calorie stew and only 6 Weight Watchers Points!
This is a fabulous chicken stew recipe for a crock pot or slow cooker. And with only 4 Weight Watchers Points, it’s hard to imagine that stew with this much flavor can be made so quickly and easily! Plus, this stew recipe is packed with mostly vegetables and meat making it high in fiber and protein, and low in carbohydrates and calorie – perfect! I also found it to be very filling. It heats up well too, so it makes a great diet friendly lunch to take to work for the next day.
This sausage and chicken recipes is one of my fiancé’s all time favorites. And I like cooking it because it’s an easy recipe to prepare. Not to mention it’s delicious and a big serving is only 6 Weight Watchers POINTS! Gumbo, which is a local version of French bouillabaisse, has graced every proud Louisianan table at one time or another. And this lightened up version is just as tasty as the traditional delicacy of the bayou.
TIP: This homemade gumbo recipe can be prepared with fresh vegetables for a slightly more crunchy texture.
The first time my fiancé made this dish for me, I was blown away by how incredibly healthy and low calorie it is. Shakshuka is a hot and spicy traditional dish that originates from Israel which consists mostly of tomatoes and eggs. But my fiancé has enhanced the traditional Shakshuka recipe with some tasty (and healthy) additions. His version of Shakshuka is astoundingly low calorie, and the nutritional statistics make it one of the healthiest home-cooked meals I’ve ever had. Just one serving big serving (with 2 eggs) packs in about 3/4 of your recommended daily allowance of fruits and vegetables, and yet contains only about 200 calories, 8 grams of protein, 0 grams of fat, about 7 – 8 grams of fiber, which is equivalent to only 3 Weight Watcher Points!!! *Note that these nutritionals are based on not eating the yolk of the egg, which have more fat and calories, but only eating the white. I chose to not eat the yolk of the egg, simply because I don’t like the yolk, but that ended up making a lot more healthy and low calorie /low fat. And on top of all this, Shakshuka tastes INCREDIBLE!!! So many flavors, textures, and colors!
My favorite way to eat the Israeli Shakshuka is spiced up with some Frank’s Red Hot Sauce (best hot sauce EVER!!!), which adds a nice hot and tangy taste. YUM!!! The best part is, you can really pig out on this stuff with absolutely no guilt. So it’s a great way to really satisfy your hunger and pack in some amazing nutrients and vitamins, and stay within your Weight Watcher Points!!!
If you don’t really care too much about calories or you don’t diet then try this…my fiancé likes to eat his Shakshuka in a bowl over fresh Israeli hummus (that can be found at Costco) and wipe it with a warm pita bread. Trust me! He knows what he’s doing…
Nothing says authentic cowboy cookin’ luck Arizona Chuck Wagon Beans. I absolutely adore this meal, but I thought there was no way I could manage to eat it and still stay within my Weight Watchers Points Range for the day. So when I found this recipe online one day, I was ecstatic! I couldn’t wait to give it a try. It ended up turning out perfectly! Actually, it turned out so well, my fiancé didn’t even know it was low calorie! Ha!
If you like that good ‘ol fashioned western cooking, this is one recipe you’ll love!
