Creamy Salmon Pasta with Herby Breadcrumbs – 9sp

One of my favourite changes brought about by Flex was that salmon, one of my favourite fish, became 0sp. I’d always eaten a lot of salmon anyway but, since the change, I’ve been using it in ways I may have avoided a little before, such as here with pasta and a creamy sauce.

This recipe came about one Saturday night when I wanted to make a quick and easy dinner with the ingredients I had in the fridge/store cupboard. I threw them all into a plastic bag, headed to my sisters and freestyled to see what I could come up with. The result was the delicious pasta dish which we both thoroughly enjoyed (I could have quite happily licked the bowl!).

Chicken and Chorizo Chilli – 3sp

There is nothing better than a classic chilli con carne and I’m always looking for ways to mix things up to put a little twist on an everyday classic.  Last week my friends and I went out for a few gins and the bar we were in served a small tapas dish with each drink. One of the dishes was a tiny bowl of the most delicious chorizo and chicken chilli and as soon as I tasted it I knew I needed to recreate it in my kitchen at home. The result was delicious and enjoyed by both my friends and family. I served the chilli with rice, homemade guacamole, a little light cheese and a sprinkle of jalapenos. Because the chilli itself is so low in points, you can have a little bit of what you fancy with it, whether that be rice, a jacket potato, chips, nachos or even a pita bread.

Bolognese Baked Gnocchi – 10sp

Batch cooking is a great way to prepare for the week ahead and, now I’m cooking for 4 adults on a daily basis, I’ve also found it’s the quickest way to also ‘prepare’ lunch for the next day. This recipe is a real quick and easy treat which tastes like it has taken a lot more effort to prepare than it has!

Homemade 0sp Berry Compote

One of my favourite, go to, quick and easy breakfasts is this delicious berry compote served with fat free Greek yoghurt (my favourite is Total 0% Fat Greek Yogurt as it’s lovely and thick) and a sprinkling of either Weight Watchers Strawberry granola (available in classes or in the online shop) or my current favourite, Grape nut (I get mine in Sainsbury’s) with a little honey.  It is such a simple recipe and for the grand total of 0sp, really livens up breakfast time.

Creamy Chicken Pie – 8sp

There are a few recipes that I get asked to make WW friendly a lot and chicken pie and chicken korma are two of the most popular. After putting it to a vote on Instagram, you chose the pie as the first of these two recipes you would like to see so, your wish is my command!

This is a lovely creamy pie filling recipe which feels really indulgent. I served the pie with a 50g garden peas per person and that was enough for me however if you have a very hungry OH, you could always serve with some mash too!

Poached Eggs with Romesco Sauce, Parma Ham, Wilted Spinach – 4sp

After I made my delicious Foil Baked Cod with Romesco Sauce and Greens recipe, I had a couple of portions of Romesco sauce left over. Whilst I could have used it the next night with chicken or steak, I thought instead I would try and incorporate it into a nice and simple breakfast recipe. This is just that. Low in carbs and points but packed with flavour, this breakfast can be a weekend treat or, since it is so quick to pull together, a weekday option too.
