I’m always on the lookout for delicious and healthy Weight Watchers Slow Cooker Recipes, because, let’s face it, cooking in a crock pot pretty much rules. With a toddler at home and a baby in my tummy causing horrible morning sickness, I LOVE the idea of throwing some food in a pot and calling it dinner! This amazingly yummy Mushroom and Black Bean Crock Pot Recipe was so good! Loaded with flavor, spice and texture, this chili was way more enjoyable than I anticipated. It’s also packed with protein and fiber, and very low in fat, giving it just 6 Points + per serving. It’s a great, healthy alternative to traditional Mexican foods, and still brings that authentic Mexican flavor. This is also a great dish to serve for a crowd or large party, and is sure to fool everyone into thinking it’s fatteningly delicious!

Full of fiber and flavor, this tasty black bean dip recipe is incredibly filling. Serve it as a dip with fresh veggies, baked pita chips, or baked tortilla chips as a delicious and healthy appetizer recipe. I also used this dip as a sandwich spread on a turkey breast sandwich. Deelish! This is really such an easy dip recipe, you can make it in no time, so it’s a great snack idea if you need to whip up something healthy – fast! Also, I am obsessed with spicy foods, so if you don’t like things as hot as I do, just take out the jalapenos in this recipe. :) Though this is not an official one of Weight Watchers Dip Recipes, it’s 1 Point Total servings, make it an ideal dip for any dieter.
A great alternative to traditional chili recipes, this Weight Watchers Turkey Chili Recipe has a wonderfully unique taste that even the most pickiest eater will enjoy! I first learned of this recipe through my good friend, and fellow Weight Watcher, Janice, who is the writer of the fabulous blog, Sew Girly. She prepares this white bean chili recipe frequently and after hearing about how fabulous it is, I decided to try it myself, and I was blown away! It is such a nice change of pace from the typical chili recipe! This White Bean Chili also makes a fabulous Weight Watchers Crock Pot Recipe and it makes great leftovers so it tastes even better the next day for lunch! I prefer to prepare this as a crock pot recipe, and then divide the whole thing up into individual portions and freeze them so I can reheat it in a pinch for a quick and easy meal. With just 4 Weight Watchers Points per serving, and TONS of fiber and protein, this dish also makes a fantastic Momentum Plan Recipe. Each serving is really quite large so it will fill you up and won’t be hungry. And there’s nothing better than feeling full when you are dieting!! So if you are following the Weight Watchers Momentum Plan, or if you are just looking to expand your collection of yummy chili recipes, you are gonna want to give this white bean turkey chili a try, ASAP!

This slow cooker recipe for Asian Spiced Beans with Rice, complete with Weight Watcher Points, is one of the best I’ve ever had. It’s thick and hearty, and loaded with fiber and protein, so you feel very full with just one serving. If you really want to amp up your nutrients, you can substitute brown rice for the cooked white rice. I also preferred to use black beans instead of the red beans because I like the taste better.
