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.
Sometimes, you just gotta have a big, juicy, manly, hearty burger. Last week, I had one of those days. So I put together this Blue Cheese Burger Recipe that was seriously out of this world. Each burger came out to just 9 Points +, which wasn’t bad considering how big and satisfying it was. I probably could’ve used a sandwich thin, or some other low carb hamburger bun, and shaved off an extra Point or two, but this time, I needed something BIG and carb-y. So I went with a thick, hearty, whole grain hamburger bun from Udi’s. The meat was so juicy and flavorful, and the pungent blue cheese was the most perfect complement. The next time you need a burger that is so divine it feels NOTHING like diet, food, this Blue Cheese Burger is your ticket!
Combine fresh cherry tomatoes and whole milk mozzarella with peppery arugula for a light and easy Weight Watchers Salad Recipe that is as delicious as it is lovely. This low calorie dish literally takes no more than 5 minutes to make, and it makes such a pretty and flavorful side salad that can accompany a variety of meals. The fresh and mild mozzarella goes wonderfully with the acidity of the fresh tomatoes, and tang of the vinaigrette…and it’s all balanced on a bed of piquant arugula leaves. You can even toss in a handful of fresh basil leaves for an added boost of flavor, if you’d like. Each serving is just 3 Points +, so this is a great way to add some extra pizzaz to your meal without using up a lot of those precious Points.
Perfect for a laid-back weekend breakfast or brunch, these adorable little Crustless Quiches are not only delicious, but they are just 3 Points + each! By eliminating the tradition quiche crust, this dish becomes a low carb, high protein Weight Watchers breakfast recipe that is flavorful and filling, yet still very light. Also, using egg whites instead of whole eggs makes a big difference in the nutritional content. I love and prefer the taste of egg whites, but these quiches can be made with whole eggs or EggBeaters if you’d rather. Serve with some toast, fresh fruit and a light salad for a complete, low Points Plus meal.
THIS.WAS.AMAZING. Words cannot even begin to express my love for these Bacon Ranch Turkey Wraps. Salty bacon, roasted turkey, smooth American cheese, creamy ranch dressing, and crunchy lettuce, tomatoes, and onions all rolled up into a low calorie, high fiber for wrap for just 6 Points +?!?!? YES!!!!! Not only were they easy and super quick to make, but they were unbelievably delicious. Everything about this wrap worked perfectly together. I just took the idea of a BLT and altered it a bit to make it more Weight Watchers friendly. I use Flatout flatbreads a lot when I’m making wraps because they are absolutely the perfect texture and taste for it. If you aren’t tracking Points Plus, feel free to use any kind of wrap you’d like and use the full fat American cheese – the taste is slightly better. And if you want to shave off another Point or two, you could make this with turkey bacon instead of the regular bacon, but I’d advise against that and encourage you to spend the Points with the real bacon. It’s such a big player in this dish that it doesn’t quite taste the same as the turkey bacon. If you like BLT’s, then this Bacon Ranch Turkey Wrap will blow your mind. Enjoy!
This Marinated Cherry Tomato Salad is one of my go to Weight Watchers side dish recipes whenever I have an abundance of cherry or sugar plum tomatoes on hand. I often buy a lot of those little tomatoes under the assumption that I’ll eat them all up by enjoying them as a healthy snack, but instead, I usually end up ignoring them. Therefore, I am always left with extra tomatoes. But I like to use them in this super quick and easy salad recipe, and they make a perfect side dish for a variety of meals. I just throw it all together in the afternoon, and then it’s marinated, flavorful and all ready for dinner that evening. Which is AWESOME, because that’s one less thing I have to get done before dinner. And it’s just 1 Points + per serving, which is fantastic if you are watching those Weight Watchers Points. If you want to bulk this salad up more, try adding some red onions and serve over a bed of fresh iceberg lettuce. Or for an extra point or two, toss is some fresh mozzarella cheese – delish!
This deliciously healthy and low calorie Stuffed Cabbage Saute is a variation of traditional stuffed cabbage rolls, which is a popular Polish recipe. However, making stuffed cabbage rolls can be a pesky and time consuming task, but my simpler sauté version in all prepared in one pot making it an easy Weight Watchers recipe that anyone can successfully prepare. It’s low in fat, high in fiber and protein, and has that wonderful sweet and sour taste that I’ve always adored in stuffed cabbage rolls. And at just 4 Points + per serving, it’s a great way to fill up while still staying within your Weight Watchers Points budget. This easy and flavorful dish was a huge hit at my house and something I’ll be making again and again. Enjoy!

An all-in-one meal, these Crock Pot Chicken Taco Bowls are truly a satisfying dish. Each bowl is loaded with quality ingredients that taste AMAZING and will help give you energy while keeping you full. By cooking the chicken in the crock pot with salsa, it allows for the chicken to become, tender, juicy and oh-so flavorful. Each bowl is 9 Points +, which isn’t bad when you figure all that’s packed inside that bowl. And because it’s so filling, you really don’t need any side dishes with this. It also freezes really well!

Gyros. I ADORE them. And when I used to live in Los Angeles, my husband and I used to go to this amazing little restaurant that sold the most delicious gyros. It was right around the corner from our apartment, and we used to walk there VERY REGULARLY for dinner. I remember how I used to stand there and literally salivate as I watched them slice that beautifully tender meat off the rotisserie. But now, being a Weight Watcher, I’d have to seriously limit my gyro consumption if I wanted to actually lose any weight. So when my friend told me about this yummy Chicken Gyros Recipe she tried from Annie’s Eats, I decided to give it a try myself and see if it would truly have the flavors and satiety to satisfy my gyro craving. Using chicken instead of lamb meat was a good start to keeping it light. I just had to add in a few more spices to give it more of an authentic gyro taste. And then I served it on whole wheat pita. I also used much simpler Tzatziki sauce method, and was very pleased with how excellent (and easy!) and was. The gyros were fantastic. If you are a gyro lover, add these Greek Chicken Gyros to your ‘Must Try’ list, asap.
What a gorgeous salad to serve with any meal! I love all the rich colors and textures in this Roasted Eggplant Salad with Goat Cheese….perfect for any season. The smoky taste of the roasted eggplant combines wonderfully with the acidity of the tomatoes and the creamy and tangy goat cheese. This salad could be enjoyed as a side dish or even as a main course (just double the serving), as it is incredibly filling. Each serving is just 4 Points + and has over 7g of fiber! It’s a great way to help you feel full without spending a lot of Weight Watchers Points. This beautiful salad is as nutritious as it is lovely, and definitely a healthy salad recipe I recommend trying.
