  1. I am on the new point system. but if the nutritional info is provided I could calculate it myself. Thanks for the reply.

    • This is one of my older recipes that I unfortunately didn't post the nutritional stats for. Back when I started my blog, it was just to provide recipes with the Points value. Little did I know that posting the nutritional stats would come in handy much later when Weight Watchers overhauled their whole system Grrr!!! I could seriously kick myself. I am working on re-building each of my old recipes in order to figure out the new Points +, and when I do, I will make sure to update them all with the nutritional info as well as the new Points Plus values, so readers can still calculate the old Points, if they are using that plan.

  2. Looks great! Is that based on the old point system? If so, what is the WW + points value?

    • Most of my old recipes still have the old Points, but I am doing my best to convert them over time, however, it's taking me a while to gather all of the nutritional information for them. This particular recipe is still based on the old Points plan. You can tell whether the recipe has the Points or PointsPlus by looking at the title. If it says "Points +", it's the new PointsPlus, and if it says 'Point Total", then it's the old Points system. Everything after the 1st of the year has Points + values, as well as nutritional stats, so either the new Points Plus can be used or, if you are still using the old Points plan, you can use the nutritional stats to calculate them.
