Avocado Baked Eggs with Bacon Bits and Soldiers– 7pp

I ADORE avocado. I just can’t get enough of it but it is quite pointy. As a result, I’m always trying to find new ways to include it within my meals so that I can both enjoy it but keep the points low. This recipe is an ideal was to do this. By scooping out some of the avocado to make room for the egg you reduce the points by another half. I reserved the avocado I scooped out and have kept it for tomorrow’s salad!

Goat’s Cheese and Pesto Bruschetta – 4pp

This was the lovely starter that I made on my meat free Good Friday three course meal challenge. It’s something that I’ve had a few times in Italian restaurants and it’s always really satisfying. Making a light version seemed like a great way to start off my meat free 3 course meal however if you did fancy a bit of meat, pop a slice of prosciutto on top of the pesto.

Harissa Roast Salmon with a Fruity Cous Cous Salad – 14pp (6pp on F&H)

When presented with the idea of making a three course meatless meal on Good Friday, I knew I was going to have to get creative in the kitchen and after doing a little research I came across this lovely little recipe online. I made a few of my own amendments to make it both lower in propoints and to make sure it was packed full of flavour and the result was incredible. The smell of the dish was to die for a my sister, who has always been dubious about trying salmon, absolutely loved it.

Moroccan Stuffed Butternut Squash – 5pp

As you all no doubt know, we are blessed on Weight Watchers with the 0pp delight that is Butternut Squash. I’m a massive fan of it as a replacement for potatoes and even sweet potatoes so I’m always trying to find new ways to use it. Tonight, fancying something filling but low in points, I created this lovely delight which went down a storm. It tastes amazing and really is so filling and satisfying.

Ham and Houmous Salad with Cous Cous – 6pp

I get lots of folk who are doing Weight Watchers often saying that they struggle to find low pro point, filling but tasty lunches. As you all probably know, I’m a huge salad fan and this is one of the regulars in my repertoire. As it’s so filling, it usually stops me fancying an afternoon snack later on in the day! I use Aldi’s cous cous as it’s the tastiest one I have had and is only 39p per pack (each pack does two lunches too!). I vary the flavours between the spicy and the lemon and coriander but both work nicely with the recipe below. I usually make two portions in one go so I don’t have to be organised two days in a row.
