    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)

    Texas has some great steak houses. One of the most colorful in the state is Big Texan Steak Ranch in Amarillo. If you can completely eat a 72 oz. steak, along with a baked potato and shrimp cocktail, you get it free. Their recipe for Texas Caviar is also very good. Try making it sometime.

    Recipe #18894

    A quick and easy recipe to prepare. Can be used as a side dish or salsa.

    Recipe #27778

    A different way to prepare baked sweet potatoes. The recipes comes from "Cooking with the Diabetes Chef".

    Recipe #96042

    This recipe is from some magazine. Makes delicious roasted carrots. Very simple! See the maple glazed version I posted as well!

    Recipe #59278

    This is from Eating Well, Fall 2004 issue. I have always despised cooked carrots, but have found it's because I don't like them with added sugars or brown sugars and I really hate them mushy. This is the first cooked carrot recipe that I really like and have made it repeatedly. I modified the original recipe so that the carrots are cooked to the bare minimum, and I've bumped up a couple of the seasonings to my tastes. I use a smoked paprika that's a little spicy, which is wonderful in this, but you could use whatever you have on hand. I've also just used "baby" carrots as a timesaver.

    Recipe #109803

    The humble carrot served in an exciting way. This is an excellent side dish to roasts and steaks. I didn't have fresh parsley on hand, so I omitted it and it still turned out great. I will try the recipe with the addition of the parsley next time, though. Recipe source is my favourite Swiss cooking magazine called 'KOCHEN' (December 04). I included this recipe into my African cook book for the Zaar World Tour, as all ingredients appear in Middle East dishes.

    This is a Weight Watchers core recipe. Serve with frozen yogurt or whipped cream - you have to add the points, of course!

    Recipe #206491

    I took left-overs from fajitas and added a few goodies to get this core friendly chili.

    A hearty, satisfying stew, made with colorful, autumn bounty. I love the bold taste of fall veggies!

    Recipe #330889

    This was distributed at my WW meeting this evening and I came to the site fully expecting that it had been posted and I could save it to one of my cookbooks. Lo and behold, I am the first and while I have not tried this I don't want to lose is as I am apt to do with the card.

    Recipe #329876

    From The 99% Fat-Free Cookbook. I made this over the weekend to rave reviews from family. Very simple (4 ingredients), but very good side dish, especially if you like acorn and butternut squash.

    Recipe #91976

    Tired of mashed potatoes? This offers a delicious change of pace with a tasty blend of flavors and textures.

    Recipe #327974

    A recipe that I got out of a cook book but made some changes. A great meal for the whole family

    Recipe #310373

    The appeared in Womans Day Magazine and the photo set my heart aflutter. Need to do a little decluttering so I wanted to type it up and decided to take a chance and post it untried. Great ingredients combined with easy preparation and a short cooking time. What's not to love? Even better it is WW Core and just 5 points on Flex.

    Recipe #326516

    These are great with burgers or hotdogs. Have great mounds of them for the guys while watching football. Adjust the spices to your liking. Taste good and next to no fat!

    Recipe #11155

    Recipe from Texas chef Dean Fearing of Mansion on the Turtlecreek. He recommends serving it with a barbeque rubbed chicken breast. It is also terrific poured over a block of cream cheese and served with crackers for an easy appetizer.

    Recipe #169316

    Just what the name says, but the name still doesn't do it justice! It is one of my family's favorites! This is one of those desserts that is so simple and delicious at the same time!

    Recipe #63648

    10 Reviews |  By I'mPat

    From super food ideas. Totally suitable for diabetics.

    Recipe #178208

    I borrowed this recipe from Epicurious. It has all CORE ingredients and is delicious!

    Recipe #183638

    This is really simple with only 5 ingredients but tastes great. I usually use breast fillets & just pour the whole jar of salsa over them with the other ingredients then add a little cheese sprinkled over towards the end of baking. Mmmm Mmmm! Recipe from Masterfoods.
