This is one of the easiest chicken recipes I’ve ever used. Man, I just love these crock pot recipes!! In less than 5 minutes, I’ve got everything in the slow cooker and there is nothing more I need to do! Plus, this low calorie basil chicken recipe tastes amazing and is a great meal for those following the Weight Watchers program. This is a great meal to cook for the whole family, or to divvy up into individual portions to be eaten at a later time (this is a GREAT way to have low point, ready made meals on hand).
This sausage and chicken recipes is one of my fiancé’s all-time favorites. And I like cooking it because it’s an easy recipe to prepare. Not to mention it’s delicious and a big serving is only 6 Weight Watchers POINTS! Gumbo, which is a local version of French bouillabaisse, has graced every proud Louisianan table at one time or another. And this lightened up version is just as tasty as the traditional delicacy of the bayou.
TIP: This homemade gumbo recipe can be prepared with fresh vegetables for a slightly more crunchy texture.
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 which 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. With just one WW point, it’s a dieter’s best friend!
This slow cooker recipe for Asian Spiced Beans with Rice, complete with Weight Watcher Points, is one of the best I’ve ever had. It’s thick and hearty and loaded with fiber and protein, so you feel full with just one serving. If you really want to amp up your nutrients, you can substitute brown rice for the cooked white rice. I also preferred to use black beans instead of the red beans because I like the taste better.
Arroz con pollo is a traditional dish from Spain and Latin America. It translates as “Rice with Chicken” in Spanish. There are many different ways to prepare this tasty meal, but below is my special Weight Watchers chicken recipe version, with lower calories, yet still with all the yumminess! Some people may use saffron in arroz con pollo, but I did not in this recipe. Though, feel free to add it to your version, if you’d like, as it will not affect the Weight Watchers Points Value. This is such an easy meal to make and is a great family Crockpot recipe!
In the world of Weight Watchers, this 0 Points soup has reached celebrity status. It’s yummy, easy to make, and has ZERO POINTS!!!
As a Weight Watchers member, this soup has been a staple for me. I find it best to make a large batch on the weekend, and then divide into 1 1/2 cup portions (these little plastic Ziploc containers work great for this), and store them in my fridge or freezer.
Nothing says authentic cowboy cookin’ luck Arizona Chuck Wagon Beans. I absolutely adore this meal, but I thought there was no way I could manage to eat it and still stay within my Weight Watchers Points Range for the day. So when I found this recipe online one day, I was ecstatic! I couldn’t wait to give it a try. It ended up turning out perfectly! Actually, it turned out so well, my fiancé didn’t even know it was low calorie! Ha!
If you like that good ‘ol fashioned western cooking, this is one recipe you’ll love!
I was looking for something fancy (yet cheap and easy) to serve at a dinner party that my fiancé and I recently hosted and this low calorie crock pot recipe I found for apples ‘n port really fit the bill! This slow cooker recipe is so amazingly delicious over ice cream or shortbread. I served it with Devonshire cream over scones. It looked and tasted amazing and my friends were tres impressed with my gourmet cooking skills. Little do they know how easy it was!
But because I am dieting, I ate the apples ‘n port desert over some low fat vanilla yogurt, so that I could stay within my Weight Watchers Points range for the day. Yay!
Yeah, this recipe tastes as good as it sounds! It’s the perfect mix of apple pie and bread pudding that’s great served hot or cold. This Apple Pie Bread Pudding Recipe is low fat, low calorie and an amazing dessert for anyone who is following the Weight Watchers plan. Made in your crockpot, this recipe is so easy and so delicious, it’ll please your whole family and impress your guests.
If you love southern cooking like I do, you’ll love my homemade apple butter recipe, complete with step-by step instructions. I worked really hard to make this tasty sauce with fewer calories so that I could stay within my Weight Watchers Daily Points range. And it turned out amazing! This is definitely a must try.
And for those of you who’ve never had it before, here’s a little background info… Apple butter is a highly concentrated form of apple sauce, produced by long, slow cooking of apples with cider or water to a point where the sugar in the apples caramelizes, turning the apple butter a deep brown. The concentration of sugar gives apple butter a much longer shelf life as a preserve than applesauce. Apple butter was a popular way of using apples in colonial America, and well into the 19th century. The term “butter” refers to the thick, soft consistency, and apple butter’s use as a spread for breads. Typically seasoned with cinnamon, cloves, lemon juice and other spices, apple butter may be spread on buttered toast, used as a side dish, an ingredient in baked goods, or as a condiment.
Alpine Chicken is Chicken slow cooked with ham or Canadian bacon, cheese, noodles, and seasonings. It’s a rich, hearty, southern dish that can typically be pretty fattening. But I came across this fantastic recipe that manages to still deliver all “YUM factor”, but with a lot fewer calories and fat! This dish is a must-do!
