Oh how I love Weight Watchers crock pot recipes. My days have been SO hectic lately, and the crock pot saves my sanity.

I get the food in the crock pot in the morning, after I’ve had coffee and am full of energy, then come dinner time, when I’m often worn out and exhausted I have a healthy dinner, ready to go.

Traditional mashed potatoes are the ultimate comfort food. But they can be laden with a lot of extra fat, calories, and carbohydrates.

In this Cheesy Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes Recipe, I used cauliflower instead of potatoes. Surprisingly, it tasted pretty similar to actual potatoes but lacked that pasty feel. Using the cauliflower allowed the dish to require less fat or oils in order to taste good and blend well, also, cauliflower is lower in calories and carbs than potatoes, so I was able to create a dish that tasted very similar to cheesy, garlic mashed potatoes, but for just 2 Points per serving.

Using the cheese and the garlic in this low-calorie side dish recipe really helped to add some incredible flavor and help the cauliflower take on a similar texture to mashed potatoes. It was a delicious and low-calorie side dish recipe that is definitely something that I’ll be making again and again! Even my super picky husband liked it.

These Cheesy Cauliflower Mashed “Potatoes” are made for a very filling, and very tasty Weight Watchers Recipe that I would highly recommend trying.


I’ve always known that the health benefits of salmon are substantial, but sometimes salmon just tastes too fishy and so I tend to find myself shying away from it.

This Ginger Soy Salmon recipe, however, is one of the best-tasting and easiest salmon recipes I’ve ever tried.

The basics of this recipe have been around for a while and are mostly well-known, but I created my own version and wanted to share it with all of you in case any of you aren’t familiar with this popular salmon recipe. The ginger, soy, and garlic marinade really work perfectly with the salmon and give it some amazing flavor without affecting the Points value.

Each serving is just 5 Points, making this an excellent Weight Watchers dinner recipe choice. Pair it with a salad and some quinoa or rice, and you’ve got one insanely healthy and light dinner that is also pretty filling.

If you want to incorporate some more salmon into your diet, then this Ginger Soy Salmon Recipe is a must-try.

The incredible flavors of fall/winter are featured in this savory Braised Sage and Rosemary Chicken Recipe. Simmered in white wine and tomato based broth, this low calorie chicken recipe is light and flavorful and boasts just 4 Points per serving.

It makes a wonderfully easy weeknight dinner idea but is also lovely enough for me to suggest it as a Weight Watchers Christmas dinner recipe. I like to serve it over polenta, but it would also work really well on pasta or roasted vegetables.

Each serving is just 4 Points, making it a fantastic Weight Watchers recipe that delivers a lot of flavor and protein, with very minimal carbs and fat. Enjoy!

One of my favorite things about entrees from a Mexican restaurant is the sides of rice and beans that come along with them.

Since I’m a huge fan of Mexican food, I’ve pretty much become addicted to these popular side dishes. However, the restaurant version of Spanish rice isn’t so Weight Watchers-friendly. It’s actually a pretty easy dish to makeover, and the end result is a delicious and incredibly flavorful low-calorie Spanish Rice that tastes just as good as the kind you’d get in a restaurant, but less greasy and a lot more fresh tasting. And just 4 Points per serving!

So instead of indulging at your favorite Mexican restaurant, make this healthy Spanish Rice at home yourself, and save yourself some Points and some $$.


This amazing Light Beef Chili Recipe has become one of my staples in the winter and fall seasons.

By using extra lean ground beef (96% lean and 4% fat), and bulking the dish up with hearty vegetables, this chili comes in at just 4 Points per serving. It’s so incredibly flavorful and is loaded with fiber, protein, and Vitamin C. It’s the perfect Weight Watchers Chili Recipe to help warm you up (and fill you up!) on a chilly day.

Garnish it with some green onions or low fat cheddar cheese for even more deliciousness! I also love that this is such an easy chili recipe to make and it makes enough for lots of leftovers. Oftentimes, I will make this chili, then measure out a few individual servings and place them each in a Ziploc bag and then freeze them. That way, when I need something hot and hearty, I just have to pull one out of the freezer and heat it up. This is a LIFESAVER on days when I’m tired/cranky/busy/lazy or all of the above.

Truly, this is an awesome low calorie chili recipe that you must try.

If you have ever seen this odd-looking, alien-like vegetable in your produce aisle, you may have wondered what it is and how on earth you eat it.

Well, it’s called romanesco, often referred to as Roman Broccoli or Roman Cauliflower, and it’s a variant form of cauliflower.

I just recently received two heads of it in my CSA package, and I was extremely eager to try it out! Romanesco is a great diversity for fans of cauliflower who ran out of ideas on the different ways of preparing it. Roasted romanesco may be prepared similarly to cauliflower, but it is more easily digested.

And are you ready to hear what nutrients you are getting from this beautifully strange vegetable? It’s loaded with: Vitamin B1, Thiamin, Vitamin B2, Riboflavin, Vitamin B3, Niacin, Vitamin B5, Pantothenic Acid, Vitamin B6, Pyridoxine, Vitamin B9, Folate, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Dietary Fiber, Manganese, Magnesium, Protein, Phosphorus, Potassium, Tryptophan, and Omega 3 Fatty Acids — impressive!

To get full appreciation for the flavor of the vegetable, I decided to do a simple roasting of it. I broke it down into florets, lightly misted it with my olive oil mister, sprinkled some sea salt on top, and popped it in the oven. It was absolutely delicious. It tastes like a combination of cauliflower and broccoli.

I admit that the shape of this vegetable is a little off-putting, but don’t let that scare you away! It’s so delicious and so easy to prepare and makes a wonderful 0 Points side dish. Plus, it will make one heck of a conversation piece at the dinner table.

Give it a try!

Oh Em Gee…these hot and sweet meatballs were amazing! Just a few simple ingredients and they made the best mini meatball appetizer ever.

I prepared these for a holiday party recently, and they were a huge hit. After I cooked them on the stove, I transferred them to a crock pot and set that out on the food table with toothpicks. That way, my guests had access to tasty, hot meatballs all night. But they were so good, they didn’t even last long!

I served them as an appetizer, but you could easily serve them over rice or steamed veggies as an entree. The sauce is DELICIOUS.

A saucy six meatball serving is just 7 Points, making this an excellent Weight Watchers Appetizer Recipe. It was so good, it’s going to make its way to my list of Weight Watchers Super Bowl Recipes too.

So easy, and so good. These are a MUST make.

This traditional Chicken Piccata Recipe got a much healthier makeover! If you love this popular Italian dish but are afraid it may be too many Weight Watchers Points, then this healthier version will make your day.

Just by using less butter, and a lighter version of it, this Chicken Piccata still maintains the buttery flavor, but for a lot less fat and calories. It’s also bulked up a bit with some mushrooms.

Ok, if you have tried my Vegetarian Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich Recipe and are a fan, then you will be very excited about my new version of it….my Vegetarian Cheese Steak Stuffed Pepper Recipe!

It’s basically the same idea as the sandwich, but the cheese”steak” is stuffed into a green pepper half instead of a roll, shaving a Point off the original Vegetarian Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich Recipe. It’s also a great way to eliminate carbs, and it tastes truly amazing.

My picture isn’t so pretty, because I was rushing – I was dying to eat it!! And if you eat both halves, it’s just 6 Points and very satisfying.

Pair it with some baked sweet potato fries and you’ve got one amazingly delicious and very healthy meal that gets in a TON of veggies.


On Christmas morning, wouldn’t it be nice to wake up to a healthy, Weight Watchers breakfast that was cooked for you, hot and ready? Well, this easy Crockpot Breakfast Casserole Recipe does just that!

Full of protein, but lower on carbs, this breakfast casserole packs in everything you need for a filling and satisfying meal. Just prep it and put it in the crock pot the night before, and it’ll be ready when you wake up!

I topped mine with some reduced fat sour cream and salsa for extra oomph. I’ve also made this dish with turkey bacon instead of sausage, and that works really well too. And each serving is just 6 Points, which isn’t bad for a delicious casserole filled with sausage and cheese.

This breakfast casserole recipe is perfect for the non-morning person who still wants to put together a healthy and tasty breakfast for the family.
