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 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.

Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothie 675x450

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.…

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.

spicy cucumber salad

Spicy Cucumber Salad Recipe – 1 Point

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…
