    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)

    I got this recipe from "Simple Vegetarian Pleasures" by Jeanne Lemlin. I LOVE asparagus and am always on the lookout for new ways to make it. This is such an easy and elegant way to serve it. The asparagus gets a slightly nutty flavor after roasting, which makes it even more yummy.

    This taco soup is quick and easy to prepare and has great flavor. I got it from a family friend.

    Recipe #40022

    You can eat as much of this 0-point Weight Watchers cabbage soup as you like. It's so good for you.

    Recipe #128956

    Raise the lowly cabbage to something extraordinary! This technique of sautéing brings out a wonderful sweetness you never knew existed in cabbage. You can add different spices to this recipe: curry, caraway seeds, or hot pepper sauce are just suggestions. But try it plain first! Adapted from The Low-Carb Cookbook by Fran McCullough

    A very healthy and exotic way to prepare chicken. Goes great with couscous and a fresh green salad.

    Recipe #15580

    From www.TopSecretRecipes.com I got this copycat recipe off of Top Secret Recipes site.I love Friday's Black Bean Soup because of its spiciness and I was so happy to find this! This is so easy to prepare! You can make this soup on the stovetop or in the slow cooker.I brought this soup to a boil on the stove and then put it in the slow cooker and let it simmer on low for 2-3 hours. If you like black bean soup, you're gonna love this!

    Recipe #102274

    A south of the border blend of textures and flavors. serve hot as a main dish or a side dish with grilled meat or chicken.

    Recipe #55768

    This is a fabulous recipe for oven fried tilapia slightly adapted from Paul Prudhomme's wonderful "Fork In The Road" lower fat cookbook. I served this for dinner with family and it got rave reviews. Even my picky 5 year old eater enjoyed it. The ingredient list here is long, but is mostly spices. Please don't be put off, this is wonderful stuff and once you get the spice mixture combined, quite easy to make.

    Recipe #99709

    I was surprised not to see this one on Zaar! Tyler Florence said, "Once you try this, you'll never have corn on the cob any other way." We agree wholeheartedly! The corn steams and cooks in it's own husk without any pre-soaking or anything. The corn's flavor is intensified right in the husk! After removal from the oven, just pull back the husk and use it for a handle. The silk comes off with the husk! Let me know if you like corn this way as much as we do!

    This is a REFRESHING, tangy Salad--low in fat. If you want it creamy and not so low in fat, just add 2 tablespoons mayonnaise. Be sure to slice the cucumbers and onions very very thin! Serve as salad or top open faced sandwiches with it!

    Recipe #51721

    This is a deceptive recipe: quick and easy to make with a simple ingredient list but which really delivers the flavor. What more could you want from chicken and potatoes? I find one large lemon yields just about 1/4 cup juice. This recipe makes 4 servings, but my husband and I eat this easily between the two of us.

    Recipe #93596

    Great for anyone going low carb OR who has so many zucchini, they don't know what to do!! :) We found the sauce to be very mild. I think it would be better with twice as much garlic. I boiled my zucchini slices for about 3 minutes so they were partially cooked. I wanted to make sure they were soft in the finished dish or I knew the kids wouldn't eat them. ;) The cottage cheese provides a slightly tangy note. I think we would have preferred ricotta, but that is personal taste. I use my 11x7 baking dish and got 6 pieces the size of what you see in my photos. Both of the guys ate two so it fed 4 of us, and I double the meat. Adjust the recipe accordingly for your family.

    Recipe #749

    This is great for a buffet! A marriage of couscous and fresh veggies held together by a Southwestern flavored dressing!

    Recipe #21843

    This is a quick and easy recipe that never fails to please even my picky DDs. Since chicken thighs are usually inexpensive it makes a economical meal. I like to serve these with some type of rice side dish and a green salad.

    Recipe #71557

    I think this is our #1 all time family favorite and it's often requested for birthday dinners. It's the 'Bestest' because my daughter described it as such when she was little. This freezes well and I've added directions for that and for reheating.

    Recipe #56366

    Love balsamic vinegar, hope you enjoy this chicken. Note; I have found that it's better with boneless, skinless chicken breast or boneless, skinless thighs. Baking time may be less due to size.

    Recipe #55673

    The ultimate mall fruity shake at home! I modified this recipe one day from one i found online. I have sensitive teeth so I don't like ice much anyway. Guaranteed not to give you "slushie headache".

    Recipe #24088

    This is my first recipe - please be kind! My kids love it and when I take it to a BBQ everyone wants the recipe. It is a variation on one I found in epicurious a while ago. It is very easy and very yummy!!

    Recipe #99156

    This makes for a pretty dish and is easy to assemble. If you don't have the fresh vegetables on hand, you can easily adapt with canned goods. I get requests for the recipe all the time.
