    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)

    An improvisation of a recipe from Vegetarian Times, modified to suit the contents of my pantry, my tastes and the WW Core program. I love that it captures the flavor profile of longer cooking dishes but can be prepared in less than 30 minutes. The optional garnishes are not Core and require WPA. (Flex=4 points)

    Recipe #339531

    4 Reviews |  By Brenda.

    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

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

    Recipe #327974

    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

    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

    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

    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

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

    Recipe #310373

    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

    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

    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.

    Recipe #306773

    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

    I stumbled across this recipe on the Weight Watchers Core board. It is absolutely 100% core. I have made it a couple dozen times since and have tweaked it to (my personal) perfection! It is so temptingly delicious and filling, I recommend taking a portion out and immediately freezing the rest in containers for lunches. It is great with a little No Fat Sour Cream as a condiment.

    Recipe #302218

    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

    One sixth of this recipe is 8 Weight Watchers points and contains 28g whole grains. All of the ingredients are Core. This was adapted from a recipe on the back of a Minute Rice box.

    Recipe #294560

    This was a reader's submission to the Fall 2004 issue of the magazine Your Diet. As the reader said, "When it comes out, it tastes like apple pie filling."

    Recipe #294442

    This delicous Weight Watcher core program recipe counts as 4 point per serving to the the core member. You can really add any vegetables to taste to this recipe.

    Recipe #293168

    A yummy alternative to pizza that follows the Weight Watchers Core program.

    Recipe #293167

    Weight Watcher Core Plan recipe. Serves 4, 1.25 points per serving. Great when served over brown rice.

    Recipe #292535
