    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 found this recipe in the March/April 2008 issue of Weight Watchers magazine. It is a CORE recipe for those following the CORE plan and it is a points value of 5 for a serving of 1 cup of chili with 2 tablespoons sour cream and 1 tablespoon of scallions.

    Recipe #313760

    I saw this on a cooking blog website and after having bought way more butternut squash than I needed, it seemed like a great solution. It's really good; the roasting of the squash brings out its flavor a lot. I think Next time I'll try replacing the thyme with basil. Prep time includes dicing the vegetables.

    Recipe #294529

    My rendition of a Weight Watchers classic. This is yummy and you can happily serve this with vegetables and pita chips to family and guests who will never know it is both Core and points friendly. If your sun-dried tomatoes are very dry, soak them in boiling water for 5 minutes before chopping. A word of caution: this recipe does not do well over time as after two or three days the lemon becomes too pronounced and spoils the balance of flavors. My suggestion if you want to enjoy this over many days is to reduce the amount of juice and zest by half.

    Recipe #325071

    This is so flavorful with the fresh rosemary and lemon. I make this when my garden is growing so I have the fresh rosemary. You can substitute dried rosemary for the fresh, just use 3/4 tsp. I usually serve this with a rice pilaf and veggies.

    Recipe #312186

    Yes, yet another vegetarian chili recipe. The beauty of this one is it is REALLY yummy, has a decent amount of protein, and only simmers 25-30 minutes! It is definitely a favorite in our house, especially with cornbread. From Best Kept Secrets of Healthy Cooking by Sandra Woodruff.

    Recipe #257017

    From the TVP cookbook

    Recipe #203976

    I know I have already have a rice pilaf posted, but I couldn't resist changing it up a bit. I came up with something that is quite different from the one I have, and it was a big hit in my house.

    Recipe #207911

    Yogurt thickened by draining overnight and then seasoned with fresh herbs. If you have an herb garden this is outstanding! (Still good if you pick your herbs from the produce section at the grocery store) "Cooking" time includes overnight draining of yogurt.

    Recipe #310044

    I first had plantains when I moved to the UK and to an area that has a large Caribbean and Nigerian population. They are yummy and sort of like a banana but not exactly as they need to be cooked. This is a really easy way of trying out plantains without being afraid of what to do with them. You don't really need the cooking spray but it wouldn't let me post a recipe with just one ingredient.

    Very yummy and diet friendly.

    Recipe #231333

    The creamy blend of rhubarb and strawberries makes this an irresistable guilt-free treat in the summer heat. If you don't have strawberries on hand just use all rhubarb. Excellent for diabetics: Only 41 cal, and about 9g carb per serving. From Company's Coming Diebetic Cooking.

    Recipe #125031

    Smoky, spicy and comforting this easy dish is my adaptation of a recipe found on weightwatchers.com. My favorite preparation is used here: chop, dump and simmer. The onions and leeks melt down into the base of the soup giving the liquid both body and flavor. As presented, this recipe is 5 WW points per serving and Core.

    Recipe #306910

    These green beans will put a pucker on your face! They definitely have a whang to them. My uncle Don is a very VERY picky eater and he ate half the pan, so they must be pretty good. You can also adjust the heat to these babies and if you happen to catch canned vegetables on sale (if you're not into canning your own), it's a great way to serve an alternative to plain ole green beans or that mushroom casserole everyone makes at the holidays.

    Recipe #138660

    From Good Housekeeping magazine. I am cooking it right now, so I haven't tried it, but it sounds so good! I substituted chicken breasts for the thighs and 1/2 tsp of chipotles in adobo for the paprika.

    Recipe #253599

    The proverbial statement "You know you are a Weight Watcher when..." could easily be completed with you have heard of or tried chicken simmered in a sauce made of equal parts ketchup and diet cola. While I love the dish for it's simplicity, I find it too sweet for my tastes. Inspired by Recipe #219157 and the addition of onions to add a savory note, I decided to play with the classic and developed this version. Though there are a few more ingredients, it is just as easy to prepare as the original. (WW 4 points per serving and Core)

    Recipe #303856

    In my quest to lose weight and keep it off, I've been eating a lot of salad. I usually eat it twice a day which means I have to vary my salad dressing to keep from getting bored. I found this recipe on www.mizfrogspad.com and have altered it slightly to fit my taste. This recipe will fit into the WW Core Plan or counts as "0" points on the Flex Plan. Makes about 1 cup = serving size equals 2 tablespoons.

    Recipe #298244

    Recipe #234253

    I need to lose weight and I thought that, come on girls, if we can't come up with delicious, low fat, low cal food then who can? I made this last night and my slender DH declared it my best chicken recipe ever - not sure if I'm pleased about that!!! Please try it, packed with flavour and goodness and even yummy.

    Low cal, healthy, frozen dessert. Use whatever berries you can get. No cooking just freezing for 45 minutes 3 X's.

    Recipe #152233

    A great recipe for moist, flavorful chicken. I eat a lot of chicken, so I like to experiment a little. This is a wonderful recipe to mix up ahead of time, or even the night before, and have dinner on the table 30 minutes after you get home.
