Fish Taco Bowl – 2sp

This is an incredibly easy recipe that I threw together one night when I wanted something quick, easy, low in points and packed with flavour. You could serve these taco’s with taco shells (which are around 2sp each) or mini tortilla (3sp each – my hubby likes them this way), or if like me you love a good salad, you can serve with a mix of any 0sp salad ingredients you fancy (see my suggestions below).

Fiery Beef Madras – 2sp

One of my OH’s conditions for me getting my beautiful puppy was that we would have ‘curry Sundays’ which to be fair, we have mostly stuck too (with the exception of last night!). Last week, in an effort to keep things interesting, I whipped together this lovely curry and I have to say, it may be my favourite curry creation yet. I cooked this on a low simmer for an hour so the sauce was lovely and rich and the beef lovely and soft and falling apart. If you don’t have time to do this however, just pop it on a higher heat for anywhere from 15 minutes.

Boxing Day Leftovers – Asian Turkey Salad – 2sp

Christmas is one of my favourite times of the year but for us Weight Watchers, the joy of the festive season often comes alongside a side helping of guilt at the food we may consume which we usually wouldn’t allow ourselves.

Having savvy ways to use up leftovers is not only way the perfect way to keep your portions under control on the big day, but it will also save you a lot of time and money at a manic (and frankly rather expensive) time!! The lovely Asian salad is one of my favourite ways to use up left over Christmas Day turkey. Its packed with flavour and lovely and light and healthy. Best of all, its only 2sp. The perfect Boxing Day lunch!

This fabulous recipe was featured in the December issue of Weight Watchers magazine so if you have a copy, you can find it in there too!

If you fancy making this lovely salad even more filling, you could also fry up some egg noodles and spilt between the bowls for an extra 5sp per person.

Turkey Stuffed Courgette Boats – 2sp

This recipe came about after defrosting a pack of turkey mince and deciding to use up some of the contents of my cupboards. After scratching my head for a few minutes I got a few bits and pieces out and thought, lets see how this goes. Boy was I impressed with the result. Not only is it a quick and easy dish to put together, but the flavours are delicious. Best of all one portion is only 2sp!!

Banana Chocolate Ice Cream – 4sp

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 little treat feel rather indulgent!

Mussels in a Spicy Tomato Chilli Sauce – 2sp

Lots of people that I speak to often say they love to eat mussels when they go out but are a bit nervous to make them themselves. I would have said the same until I gave it a go for the first time and now they are a regular in our house.

Mussels really are one of my favourite, quick go to meals when I am looking for something both cheap and easy and low in points. You get a huge portion for only 2sp so you can add to it as you please. I’ve cooked some spaghetti and stirred it through the sauce at the last minute and then served the mussels on top or I’ve just served it with a warm WW petite pan. If you add either of these, be sure to add the extra points.
