    Question:Quinoa- Stuffed- Butternut- Squash

    Quinoa Stuffed Butternut Squash

    I just don't see how you got the nutrition numbers you have posted. I'm looking at the numbers and using Weight Watchers Points Plus to evaluate the recipe. The only things that aren't free are the quinoa and the olive oil.

    Unfortunately the nutrition tables are quite often wrong. (This is probably done automatically -- we hosts have nothing to do with those calculations).

    I looked at the recipe, and it seems very healthy to me. But no ways can a portion have 112 g carbohydrates ... !! (I have no idea about the rest of that table! icon_eek.gif )

    We have a long list of forums. If you scroll down them you get to one called "Customer Support". You could report the this inaccurate nutrition table there. When you post, give a link to the recipe.

    Nutrition info is generated automatically using the USDA database. Customer Support can help you out; there's a sticky there for this purpose. Weight Watchers does not allow other websites to post points, so you are best off using the tools they gave you for that purpose and making your own calculations.

    Note that it says a serving is over 750 gm - that's nearly 2 lbs. No one would eat that much. However, both butternut squash and quinoa are loaded with complex carbohydrates. I have no trouble believing that 15% of this dish is carbs (112 gm / 756 gm). If the serving size were more accurate, the carb count wouldn't look so high.
