5 Minute Restaurant Salsa

5 Minute Restaurant Salsa Recipe – 0 Points

Chips and salsa are such a beloved snack…I mean, come on…have you ever met anyone who doesn’t like it? And with so many salsa variations available, this is a food you can never get tired of! I really love all salsas, from the freshly made to the store-bought, and everything in between.

Avocado Toast

Avocado Toast – 3 Points

I’m not ashamed to admit that I’ve jumped aboard the avocado toast train. Yes, it’s a super trendy dish, and yes things that are super trendy tend to annoy me. But the thing is, I’ve been eating avocado toast for a long time now, way before it was a thing. The fact is, it’s delicious. DELICIOUS. And it’s packed full of fresh flavors and nutrition.

Mango Salsa

Mango Salsa Recipe – 0 Smart Points

Chips and salsa are a pretty popular snack in my house. The whole family is a fan, and we find ourselves snacking on it very regularly. When I’m busy, I’ll rely on store bought salsa, but when I have the time, there is nothing more amazing than freshly prepared, homemade salsa. Recently, I whipped up a mango salsa that was total perfection.

Baela Salad

Vegan Balela Salad Recipe – 4 Smart Points

If you’ve never had (or even heard of) Balela Salad before, let me fill you in. Balela is a Middle-Eastern garbanzo and black bean salad, tossed with a tangy, herbed vinaigrette. I typically make this delicious salad anytime I’m cooking for vegans or vegetarians. The beans offer a nice dose of protein, and are wonderfully filling.

Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothie – 4 Smart Points

I’m trying to increase my protein intake, and for me, one of the easiest ways to do that is to add a protein shake to my day. I’ve got a couple of favorite store bought ones, but I wanted to try and get the same flavors and textures at home. One of the downsides of protein shakes is that if you don’t do it right, you end up with a grainy texture – which I dislike. I also tend to have to adjust the ingredients slightly, and then again, so I end up with enough smoothie for the next week. I had a bunch of strawberries to use up, and added a ripe banana as well so that I could have the extra vitamins before my walk. The oatmeal adds some fiber to help me stay full longer, as well as being heart healthy. Almond milk is always an alternative…

Cauliflower Nachos

Cauliflower Nachos Recipe – 5 Smart Points

Notch-yo average nacho (see what I did there?), these healthy Cauliflower Nachos are an absolutely decadent treat that are completely guilt free. Nachos are one of my favorite guilty indulgences, and just by making a couple of healthy changes, I can enjoy a big heaping serving of them.

Basic Egg White Salad

Basic Egg White Salad Recipe – 2 Smart Points

When trying to eat a high protein/low fat diet, it’s no secret that egg whites can play a huge a role in your eating plan. I always keep a big bowl of prepared, hardboiled eggs stashed in my refrigerator for quick and easy access. Eating the yellow part of the egg does provide a lot of nutrients, healthy fats, and cholesterol, but when I want to keep my Smart Points low, I stick to just the whites. One of my favorite ways to enjoy them is in this Basic Egg White Salad Recipe. It has all the beloved flavors of a traditional egg salad, but with a lot less fat, sugar and calories. At just 2 Smart Points per serving, this egg white salad goes great on a sandwich, on top of a salad, or straight out of the bowl! You can’t go wrong with this reliable recipe.

Mint Lemonade Slushy

Mint Lemonade Slushy – 0 Smart Points

Arabic Peanut Butter Power Bars – 5 Points +

Peanuts are central to the Arabic culture. In my last visit to Saudi Arabia, I’ve been introduced to an interesting local Peanut Bars. I forgot the name of these bars, but it was delicious. I’ve talked with one of the local guys and learned how to do these bars- and created my version, which is Arabic Peanut Butter bars. While traveling to the Arabic world, I’ve been introduced to Daud who explained to me that these bars are one of the perks at their local business. So here are the Peanut Butter Bars recipes.

Zucchini Tots

Zucchini Tots Recipe – 2 Points +

We are all familiar with the deliciousness of tater tots. But the high amount of carbs and fat in a traditionally fried tater tot can make those tiny little tots rack up some serious Weight Watchers Points pretty quickly. So by using zucchini instead of potatoes and making a few healthier alterations, my zucchini tots are the perfect alternative.

Spicy Cucumber Salad

Spicy Cucumber Salad Recipe – 1 Points +

I am a spicy food fanatic. If it’s spicy, I’ll eat it. One of the good things about that, is that most hot sauces/spicy seasonings are relatively low in Points, so I can use a lot of them to really flavor up my foods without adding on many, if any at all, calories and Points. In fact, my vegetables are often just the vehicle for some spicy sauce or dressing that I love. And this Spicy Cucumber Salad Recipe that I’m sharing today is a pretty fantastic way to eat cucumbers. The siracha based dressing for this salad adds such tremendous flavor with a big kick of heat, but for just 1 Points + per serving. So this is a great Weight Watchers side salad recipe that helps to fill me up without using a lot of Points Plus. I love this salad so much, I’ll often even throw it…
