Skinny Kitchen Takeover!

Like so many these days, rather than attending classes I maintain my weight loss by following Weight Watchers at home. The amount of support available in various online communities really helps  you to feel like you aren’t going at it alone and helps to keep your head in the game.

The Weight Watchers Community Pages, Weight Watchers Facebook Groups and Instagram are full of lovely people who every day make it a little easier for someone following the plan at home whether it be through a supportive comment, answering a quick question, or my favourite, through sharing their own recipes and ideas to make losing weight tasty!

That’s why I decided to create a new section of my blog which will be dedicated to sharing some of my favourite recipes and ideas I see from those in the online community. So I present to you Skinny Kitchen Takeover!

First up we have Louise who I’ve been following on Instagram for a good while now (lou_wwgoldmember). Louise regularly shares her amazing ideas for meals and recipes to the delight of her many followers and this is one of my favourite recipes of hers. So without further a do….

Hi my name is Louise , currently a Weight Watchers  gold member after losing a total of 30lbs. I’ve been successfully maintaining my weight now for nearly a year. I’ve found a love for cooking whilst being on Weight Watchers and I love to create new recipes.

Banana Chocolate Ice Cream – 2pp

Whilst Manchester might not get many sunny days, when we do, the temptation to indulge in a lovely cold iced treat is always strong. That’s why this ice cream is the perfect solution. You can make the ice cream itself 0pp but replacing the nutella with fruit such as raspberries and blackberries however just a little nutella and a few little extras make this 2pp treat feel rather indulgent!

BBQ Pulled Chicken Burgers with Sweet Potato Fries – 11pp

As soon as I tasted how good this BBQ sauce was in my BBQ chicken Quesadilla recipe, I knew it would also go perfectly in a burger, especially in one of Aldi’s amazing Brioche Burger buns which are only 4pp each!! Sweet Potato chips are the perfect accompaniment to this recipe to and add a real pub grub feel. If you fancy reducing the points further you could make BNS fries instead of sweet potato. This would make the dish 9pp per person.

Chorizo Baked Eggs – 7pp

This is one of my favourite recipes to whip up for Sunday brunch or even for a late supper if you aren’t feeling too hungry. It’s so quick and simple but the flavours are amazing. My OH was practically licking the plate! You can customise this recipe til your hearts content. I’ve added pepper with the onion before or even a large handful of spinach. Continue reading
