    Weight Watchers Core Recipes - WW

    When the Weight Watchers Core program was introduced, I immediately switched plans and began collecting recipes that fit well within the Core Food lists. In a nutshell, the program emphasizes meals that are rich in grains, legumes, vegetables and lean proteins (animal or soy). No flour, no sugar and no baked goods. All of these are Core, can easily be made Core with some minor modifications, or where the non-Core ingredient is a point or less per serving or easily separated from the rest of a dish (e.g., bread in a sandwich where the filling is Core. Some of my most common substitutions include using olive oil instead of butter whenever possible (will also reduce the oil to meet the 2 teaspoon allotment in most recipes); using arrowroot in place of flour or cornstarch in thickening sauces; yogurt and yogurt cheese instead of sour cream and cream cheese; Splenda for sugar; replacing white rice with brown rice or couscous; whole wheat pasta instead of regular; chicken broth for small amounts of white wine, and the use of flavorings and extracts in lieu of some ingredients (e.g, maple extract for small amounts of maple syrup). Where I've tried the recipe, see my review for the modifications made. Great flavors are key to being satisfied and these fit the bill. If you have questions about a recipe and how to prepare it with modifications, just z-mail me. (cover photo by PaulaG - Chicken and Barley Chili)

    This recipe was adapted by my mother and myself from meat chili. We fed it to my dad and only told him afterwards it wasn't meat - he couldn't tell the difference! This is a fast and filling meal and is even better, cold or warm, the next day! I serve leftovers with tortilla chips or in a wrap. Also good with sour cream and/or cheese on top.

    Recipe #54272

    The story behind this comes from a simple recipe I had found, then made changes to make our own. My husband loved it so much the first time I made it I literally had to say to him "Put down your fork or you'll explode". So from that point on we have called it by this name. The ingredients may seem bland, but combined together they taste great and present well. Enjoy.

    Recipe #108804

    These don't even have one gram of fat if prepared with the listed ingredients! If you prefer a sweeter taste add in some Spenda sweetener. In place of the freezer pop plastic molds use 18 (3-ounce) disposable clear plastic drink cups with 18 wooden sticks. To make removing the freezer pops easier from the plastic cup just run under warm water and it will pop out.

    Recipe #165274

    A soup for my special kids who had usually never tasted fresh veges. Canadian bacon is used because it is very lean.

    Recipe #169975

    I love one dish meals. This is just another example of that fact.

    Recipe #128046

    A quick, delicious comforting soup.

    Another quick and easy soup for a cold day.

    Recipe #282419

    Will fit into almost everyone's New year resolution to eat healthier. A great way to fit in your "5 a day".

    Recipe #50483

    A healthy breakfast. Throw it in the crock pot before bed time and wake up to a sweet smelling house.

    This salad will stay crisp in your fridge for up to 7 days. It is low cal and very tasty. It gets better as the days go by.

    Recipe #30910

    3 points per serving for Weight Watchers. Core people count 1 point for the tortilla.

    Very simple and easy to make. Spice it up if you wish or leave as is, and you can omit the meat and use chopped mushrooms.

    Recipe #23613

    Easy, fast, healthy and delicious! This perfect weeknight dish takes less than 30 minutes, so it's a regular in our house. You can vary the heat by the kind and amount of chile powder and hot peppers you use. Serve over hot cooked rice, if desired.

    Recipe #27815

    My mother gave me this recipe. She found it while clipping coupons. It is from S&W. This is the best stew I have ever eaten and my family requests me to make it quite frequently. It has become a "comfort food" for us. Perfect to make if you have leftovers after baking a large turkey or chicken. Can be made vegetarian or vegan if desired.

    Recipe #114558

    I learned how to make this in France from some Algerian friends. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

    I've been searching for a vegetarian sloppy joe recipe I really like, and I finally found it. This one is total comfort food! They remind me a lot of my great aunt's sloppy joes. If you've never cooked with TVP before, give it a try! I started using it recently, and it tastes amazingly like meat! It really takes on the flavor of whatever you cook it with. I got this recipe from Heather Van Vorous at www.helpforIBS.com.

    Recipe #88372

    Indian dish of rice and chicken. From the Food & Wine website, slightly altered.

    Recipe #161604

    This is not the typical pasta or fruit salad. Really nice and light for a summer day!

    Recipe #122781

    This potato salad was a revised recipe from a family favorite that was really fatty. Core or 2 pt. per 1/2 c. serving

    Recipe #111077

    Another entry in my collection of oatmeal combinations. This one is a little bit odd but the results are surprsingly good. I have presented it here to match my own desired consistency, but you should adjust to your own tastes.
