    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)

    A good tasting curry. Leave the peel on the apples for extra color.

    Recipe #18933

    Core/not sure on the points Received from a friend, but also saw on www.weightwatchers.com message board

    From the Kitchen of JillyPie (via Tink's WW Journey). Some digidoctoring. WW Core recipe.

    Recipe #206485

    Don't remember where I found this, but it is not original. Make in foil so there is nothing to clean up!

    Recipe #120277

    This is a recipe I tried at a friends house once. The combination is actually really tasty, I have made it unsuccessfully and successfully. The difference being the chilli peppers. The heat works so well with the tuna. It's LOW FAT too!!!! Dairy free if served without sour cream. Just to clarify spring onions/scallions I consider to be the same thing.

    DH goes Bullhead fishing and brings me home fish to make so I figured I better find something good to do to it! Bullhead is not fishy tasting it's most like haddock. you really can use any fish fillet you want.

    ...and it's fun to say, too!

    Recipe #107620

    My husband wanted burgers and I wanted something a little more interesting, so I came up with this little gem last night! You won't be dissapointed!

    Recipe #32945

    My family loves this recipe (even my 4 and 2 year old!). I created this recipe when I started Weight Watchers. Hubby likes all ground beef and I like all Boca Meat (meat substitute). If you use Boca Meat 2 shells is only 3 Points. I love to freezer cook as well so make 2, one for now and one for later

    Easy way to make Tamales (or close to them). Good flavor. If you don't like the corn grit flavor go completely away from the Mexican version and use Bis-Quick on top. This would not be a tamale but some people may prefer it!

    Recipe #25889

    A yummy Weight Watchers chili recipe that you can whip up after a long day at work. Serve with my WW corn bread recipe. 5 points per 1 cup serving

    Recipe #87433

    My sister served this to us this summer when I visited her. It counts 2 1/2 points per cup of soup for Weight Watchers and was very tasty!!

    A litle different speed from Spanish rice.

    You must try this wonderful combination of flavors. It provides lots of protein for vegetarians, but it's also a great side dish for a simple grilled meat entree. I think you could substitute rice for the qunioa if it's not available to you. The next time I make this, I think I'm going to stir in some fresh chopped spinach just before serving instead of the parsley.

    Recipe #69106

    I have recently started the WW Core program which emphasizes whole grains, produce, and a little bit of good oil. Around the same time I started I also re-found a lovely little cookbook that a friend gave me a few years ago called "One Pot Vegetarian Dishes" by Amy Cotler. This pilaf is a modification of a recipe from that book. It needs a little salt and pepper but is a nice main dish or side dish depending on your eating style. The original recipe says it can be served either warm or cold though I have only tried it warm. And the original recipe called for red pepper. As I only had frozen green pepper that is what I used, but feel free to change it.

    Another way to use up some of those plentiful zucchinies. The barley adds fiber and is a tasty change to potatoes. Different liquids can give a new dimention to the dish. Beef stock, fruit juice, lemon juice in the water can be used with good results.
