If you love Mardi Gras recipes as much as I do, you’ll love this Chicken Jambalaya Recipe!

It’s the perfect meal to serve at any Mardi Gras feast, and it’s a lot healthier than the traditional Jambalaya recipe, so you can enjoy yourself, while still staying on track with your weight loss plan.

Red Velvet Cake and Red Velvet Cupcakes are my, hands down, absolute favorite desserts. I ADORE them. But the typical Red Velvet Cake Recipes are full of fat, calories, and of course, extra points.

So when I came across this recipe for it, I was beyond excited and couldn’t wait to try it! When I read through the recipe, I was concerned about the icing because I REALLY like a thick buttercream, cream cheesy icing on my red velvet, but it turned out to taste pretty darn good!

The icing is definitely lighter and fluffier than I’m used to, but it still tastes fantastic, and it’s a fair compromise. This is the perfect low calorie dessert recipe to take to any party or dinner and of course, it’s a great treat to make at home as well!

When I made this recipe, I made 15 Red Velvet Cupcakes from the mix, so that I had my portions already divided out. If you love Red Velvet Cake, you’ve gotta give this Red Velvet Cake Recipe a try and satisfy your sweet tooth without the guilt!

The classic Tuna Nicoise Salad Recipe seems harmless, but the truth is, it’s often drowning in fat and excess calories. This Weight Watchers Tuna Salad Recipe has been dramatically lightened up, simply by creating a different dressing with chicken broth vinegar and mustard, and just a touch of oil.

It’s light, delicious, and incredibly easy to make. Plus, with so much protein and fiber, this Weight Watchers salad is very filling and makes a wonderful Momentum Plan Recipe to add to your collection.

It’s a perfect healthy lunch salad recipe that will fill you up, but still let you feel like you are indulging in a fancy, gourmet salad!

I don’t know what’s gotten into me lately, but I am craving sweets ALL the time. And being a Weight Watcher, this can be a deadly path!

Sure, I could let myself be bad, go buy a box of chocolates at the store and indulge myself. But instead, I chose to try this rockin’ Chocolate Marshmallow Fudge Recipe, and I am SO glad I did!!

No matter what diet you follow, it’s important to have those recipes that you know you can satisfy your cravings.

One of those recipes, at least for me, is a delicious, chewy chocolate chip cookie recipe. I don’t know about you, but good, old-fashioned chocolate chip cookies are about the best. There is nothing like them. They’re comfort food, a treat, a snack, a dessert – all rolled into one.

For those of you following the Weight Watchers Program, you should be logging your daily food intake. Doing this is an incredibly helpful tool in getting you to your weight loss goals, and a recent study by the American Journal of Preventative Medicine found that people who keep a food diary enjoy twice the weight loss of those who rely solely on dieting and exercising.

So, I’ve created this awesome Weight Watchers Food Journal that you can download and print – for FREE! It’s very easy to use — simply write down the food that you eat and its Points value, and then deduct it from your daily Points balance. You can even track your Flex Points used!

I also included little check boxes that will help you make sure you are consuming your recommended portions of water, dairy and fruits & vegetables. Using this Weight Watchers Food Diary couldn’t be easier!

I hope you’ll find this daily food journal as helpful as I have and that it will help you stick to your Daily Points Range and be aware of what you are eating everyday.

So I’ve decided to devote this week’s posts entirely too yummy Fourth of July barbecue recipes! If you are looking for healthy barbecue foods to take to your holiday celebration, you’ve come to the right place.

When I think of beef and broccoli, I always think of traditional Chinese stir fry. But this tasty dish is made in a slow cooker or crock pot, and offers a whole new way to enjoy it!

I really just adore crock pot recipes because they are so incredibly easy and so tasty, and this beef and broccoli recipe is no exception.

The first time my fiancé made this dish for me, I was blown away by how incredibly healthy and low calorie it is. Shakshuka is a hot and spicy traditional dish that originates from Israel and consists mostly of tomatoes and eggs.

But my fiancé has enhanced the traditional Shakshuka recipe with some tasty (and healthy) additions. His version of Shakshuka is astoundingly low calorie, and the nutritional statistics make it one of the healthiest home-cooked meals I’ve ever had.

This gloomy weather we’ve had in LA over the weekend has got me craving some hearty comfort food. And when it’s cold outside, nothing is more satisfying that a nice, hot bowl of soup.

My tasty Autumn Vegetable Minestrone soup is a great low calorie soup recipe to keep on hand. It’s a dieter’s best friend!
