This is a creation of mine that was created with the intention of adding some nutritional value to a very fattening recipe. The calories will change depending on what you add or take away from this recipe. It is a template for your own needs. I set the recipe up as something you can make for one; however, you can make a lot of potato wedges at once for more servings.
This recipe comes from the Hungry Girl cookbook. It weighs in at 4 points if you use the ingredients as listed. When I make this recipe it is 5 points due to the fiber content of the tortillas I use. It is a delicious, hearty way to break-the-fast.
This is a spicier variation of Recipe #15073 I posted a couple of years ago. I did not have any onions or frozen peas and got creative with what I had available in my pantry. Great with just about any Mexican meal or eggs. Enjoy!
This was found in the August/September 2005 issue of Taste of Home. I have modified it for convience and reduced calories. This is a great way to dress up a prepared angel food cake and a great dessert recipe for beginners.
This is a nice way to sneak some fiber into your diet and also have a healthy breakfast. I do not make this oatmeal too sweet, but you could adjust the sugar/splenda amounts if you prefer sweeter oatmeals. This would be great with some chopped walnuts or pecans also.
This recipe is from Taste of Home's Light & and Tasty Holiday Recipes 2004. These are not very sweet, but are a refreshing change of pace from the usual holiday baked goods, fudges, and candies. If you prefer a sweeter treat be sure to add sugar or sugar substitute to the mixture before rolling. I know there are many of us here at Zaar looking for good holiday treats that work with our eating plans. One snowball is 2 points.
This is a sandwich I created directly from cravings and guessing that this strange combination would taste good together. Also, I do not like when mayonnaise makes my sandwich soggy. I think this recipe could be a basic formula for substituting many different combinations of toppings, cheeses, and meats. You could also pre-mix the cream cheese with the dried cranberries and Gorgonzola for a faster, easier construction. The recipe as written is 6 points per sandwich. I use Aunt Hattie's Light 9 grain bread.
I clipped this recipe from the Wednesday, May 26th, 2004 edition of the Arizona Republic. This recipe is great because it uses black beans and is a fancy twist on traditional baked beans. Some may even call it "fusion cuisine". This dish can be mixed up, covered, and refrigerated up to 2 days before baking. I think this would be very good with seafood or chicken. This recipe is 3 points per serving. Ya Mon!
Very flavorful and fun. I clipped this recipe from the Food and Drink section of The Arizona Republic, Wednesday, July 16, 2003. I like to try new dishes and keep my dinners varied. This is 7 points for Weight Watchers. Serving size is one pita half.
This recipe was clipped from an insert that came with one of my cooking magazines. I think it is a good recipe because it uses ingredients that most people generally have in their pantries and fruit bowls (except the seafood of course).
This recipe is one of those "gee that looks good" as you flip through your cookbooks looking for meal ideas. When you actually do make it, the recipe, to me, is a wonderful treat. I found this recipe in a Weight Watchers cookbook. 6 points
This recipe I offered to post for Spooky Girl. We both have lower fat eating in common. I got it from a recipe card Weight Watchers used to hand out before flex points. These cookies are 3 points for two of them. Should make 24 cookies and yield 12 servings.
Very good and a nice change. I am not a big fan of cauliflower so I use a bag of fresh stir fry vegetables instead. The presentation is very colorful. I adapted this recipe from a Weight Watchers cookbok. 1 point per 1 cup serving.
