I love a good stuffed chicken dish. Since chicken is now free too, it can be stuffed with a whole host of goodies and the points still remain nice and low. The result is a dish packed with flavour that provides real satisfaction and ‘value’ for your overall points total.
As most of you know, one of the easiest cheats I employ when it comes to cooking up home cooked meals throughout the busy working week is to roast an extra-large chicken on a Sunday, shred it up and pop into a container in the fridge when cool. I then use it throughout the week for both salads and wraps at lunch time and quick and easy evening meals.
Picadillo, or spiced ground meat as its more simply known, is a dish that usually appears in Cuban cuisine. There are many different ways to make Picadillo but its usually made with either beef or pork mince. I’ve used pork mince here as I had it in the freezer.
Turkey mince is a great addition to any freezer when you are trying to keep healthy. Not only is it low in fat but it’s also really cheap. The selection of recipes out there which use it however are rather meagre if you don’t fancy going to the effort of making meatballs or burgers. That’s why, this week, I decided to try something a bit different….stuffing it into some peppers!
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.
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 kept it a salad the next day!
I love eggy bread and this morning I really had a craving for something a bit sweeter. This was the perfect solution, nice and low in points but full of lovely fresh flavours. It’s the perfect summery weekend breakfast.
As you all no doubt know, we are blessed on Weight Watchers with the 0sp 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.
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.
