    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)

    You could even grill this chicken on the outdoor grill rather than broiling it.

    Everyone who has ever tasted this loved it!! I actually use expired buttermilk, because it just tastes better. Marinating time is not included.

    Only one pan to wash with this wonderful casserole type dish which combines potatoes, rosemary, onions and garlic with quartered boneless chicken thighs and fresh spinach.

    Recipe #78707

    This is a recipe that I developed from a mixture of recipes, adapting to our tastes. I hope you enjoy it :) Time to make doesn't include time to marinate. Cooking time is an estimate, depending on how hot your grill is and how big your chicken cubes are. :)

    Cooking for 2 can often be a challenge. This recipe is easy to fix, has a pleasing apperance and best of all is suited for 2. It was in the Diabetic Cooking Magazine for May 2004.

    Recipe #94671

    Very North African in flavour! Spice mix can be used with fish and a flavouring for rice. You could serve this dish with Couscous, rice, pilaf or even steamed baby potatoes

    Recipe #11020

    My husband has recently declared my kitchen a cilantro-free zone :( so unfortunately I haven't yet tried this dish, but I am posting it because it sounds good to me and thought it might appeal to others as well. The recipe comes from Ainsley Harriott, a British chef, and he cautions not to marinate the chicken longer than two hours as the lime juice will break down the chicken to the point that it will fall apart. Preparation time does not include marinating time.

    Recipe #91961

    If you've never cooked with tomatillos, this is a great place to start! This is a close adaptation from Steven Raichlen's "Big Flavor Cookbook" (great book!), and has been a favorite as it is fresh, easy to make, adaptable, and lower in calories and fats. I've served it on rice as well as in tortillas. It can be made ahead to reheat, and has contemporary feel in its fresh flavors. I like to use skinned, deboned chicken thighs, although Mr. Raichlen uses breasts.

    Recipe #118743

    This recipe is from www.kitchenmixes.com. It is a great substitute for the boxed onion soup mix. It equals one packet or about 1-1/4 ounces. You can add garlic powder or other seasonings if you wish. It also makes a great gift for cooks. Make up some packets of onion soup mix, add a soup ladel, soup bowls, soup spoons, recipes, and some non-perishable ingredients. Place in a basket or pretty box wrapped in a tea towel.

    This is so creamy and delicious. Measurements are approximate and you can substitute milk for the water and sugar for the Splenda if you aren't watching your calories. Add 1 TB. of bran to make this really healthy.

    Recipe #207039

    This is my Dad's recipe!!! Brilliant low fat & EASY roasted potato wedges with freshly ground black pepper and olive oil. I have also added garlic, lemon wedges, fresh thyme, fresh rosemary, cumin, chilli.......the list is endless! I have posted the basic recipe and it is obviously easy to add whatever you like, depending on the mood, season & type of meal you are serving. For example, rosemary is great with lamb dishes; thyme and oregano marries wonderfully with Italian & French cuisine; garlic and lemons are GREAT with roast chicken. The basic peppered recipe is still my favourite though - I use fleur de sel (local sea salt) in mine - but any coarse salt will be fine. I have given measurements for about 4 people......it is easily adapted up or down however!

    Recipe #193370

    Adapted from Easy Entertaining with Micheal Chiarello, this is easy and tasty!

    They do say that the more color a meal has the healthier it is. This salad tastes every bit as good as it looks. Be sure to pick peppers of a deep rich red. This is a wonderful summer meal.

    Recipe #147516

    I was experimenting in the kitchen the other day, and this is what I ended up with. I topped the tenderloin with sautéed mushrooms and served it with steamed asparagus and white rice. Prep time does not include overnight marinade.

    Recipe #30378

    This recipe makes 2 different meals. Use the leftovers to make Yummy Pork Fried Rice.

    Recipe #171149

    5 minutes is all it takes to make this creamy, smooth and yummy bean dip. It is similar to a hummus but different enough to be called MINE and ALL GONE! lol I found this recipe years ago on the Kraft website I think and changed it up to make it my own. Those who turn their nose up at it but then later try it become hooked instantly. Great with Pita crisps or veggies. Update: Changed the amount of salad dressing listed to 1/2 to 1 cup. Originally posted as 1 cup but some reviewers felt that was too much. Please start with 1/2 cup and add more to your taste.

    Recipe #141369

    Filled with lots of goodies - this ain't yo' Mamma's tuna salad!
