I’m still riding the cauliflower bandwagon like a champ right now. I LOVE cauliflower and I’m finding so many great ways to use it!
This Creamy Cauliflower Cheese Pasta Sauce Recipe is no exception…it’s smooth and velvety and makes a wonderful alternative to traditional Alfredo sauce. Don’t get me wrong it doesn’t taste exactly like Alfredo sauce, but it does taste very good.
There is still plenty of summertime left to fire up that grill and start cooking!
One of my favorite Weight Watchers Grilling Recipes is this Grilled Middle Eastern Turkey Kebabs with Cucumber Yogurt Dip. Having been to the Middle East a few times, kebabs are one of the most delicious foods I’ve had there. So I wanted to create my own lighter version, and the results are pretty fantastic.
My BFF, Janice, makes an amazing breakfast quiche recipe that her whole family loves, so, inspired by her, I created my own version. And wow, is it GOOD!
This Cheesy Spinach and Mushroom Quiche recipe is sooooo easy, and the end result is a beautiful, ridiculously delicious, mouthwatering treat. Though quiche is typically considered a breakfast food, it makes a wonderful dinner or lunch too.
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.
I love eating healthy fish recipes, and there’s question that salmon is a huge nutritional powerhouse, yet I’m not in love with the taste of salmon.
So when I eat it, I need a fabulous sauce to balance the taste of the fish. This Broiled Salmon in Wine Dijon Sauce fits the bill perfectly. It has just the right amount of butter that adds the silky base to the sauce but yet is still low in Weight Watchers Points.
Normally, one wouldn’t imagine a bowl of steaming hot chili as a meal on a sweltering summer day, but this Crock Pot Pork Chili is so light and fresh tasting, it makes a wonderful Weight Watchers Summer Recipe.
The pork is nice and lean, and the fresh lime juice really help give this low calorie chili a bright flavor boost and a summer-y feel.
Both of my kids are great sleepers, which is awesome at night, but means we are often struggling to get out the door on time in the morning to schlep my son to preschool. So sitting them (and myself!) down for a healthy breakfast is practically impossible.
I needed some new ideas for something that the kids and I could eat in the car, that was filling, and that was delicious, and overall nutritious. And I hit the jackpot with these Applesauce Oatmeal Muffins.
This Lemon Garlic Slow Cooker Chicken Recipe is so simple yet so incredibly delicious. I’d hardly even call it a recipe! The preparation is so minimal and it requires just a few ingredients, yet the end result is a wonderfully moist and succulent chicken breast.
When I’m REALLY hungry and REALLY craving Mexican food, I always opt for a burrito (usually from Chipotle) because it is incredibly filling and ridiculously delicious.
However, all the fat, calories and carbohydrates in those tasty burritos can really do a number on my Weight Watchers Points balance. So I decided to try and create an easy, slow cooker chicken burritos recipe that was still flavorful and filling, but for a lot less Weight Watchers Points.
Using the slow cooker allowed for my chicken to cook all day, getting nice and juicy and full of flavor. Then, I just assemble the burritos, top them with some enchilada sauce and cheese and give them a quick heat up in the oven.
The key to making these delicious burritos low in Points was using low carb tortillas and eliminating the beans and rice. I bulked it up a but with some green peppers and onions, which also added more wonderful flavor.
Feel free to add in some extra veggies if you want. If you don’t mind spending the extra points, by all means, add in some beans, corn, rice….whatever you fancy.
Top with some optional sour cream and fresh cilantro, and these light Crock Pot Chicken Burritos will blow your mind.
CROCK POT CHICKEN BURRITOS RECIPE
A Mexican food lover’s dream, these low calorie crock pot burritos simmer all day, so at dinner time you just assemble and heat quickly in oven to melt the cheese. The tender and juicy chicken is perfectly flavored, and the enchilada sauce and melted cheese give it an extra kick.
Place chicken, tomatoes, chiles, green peppers, onion, garlic, and taco seasoning packet into a slow cooker and cook on low for about 5-6 hours. Shred chicken with two forks and stir. Drain off excess liquid.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and spray an 11 x 13 inch baking dish with nonfat cooking spray.
To make burritos, spoon about 3/4 cup burrito mixture down the center of each tortilla. Top with 1 tbsp shredded cheese. Fold up burrito and place in baking dish. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
Pour enchilada sauce over burritos and top with the remaining 1/2 cup shredded cheese.
Place in oven and cook until cheese melts and begins to bubble, about 10-12 minutes.
