boy, did I just make a mistake

I looked up meatball muffins on a WW recipe pinterest board. I THOUGHT they seemed like they'd be more than 2 points with all the hamburger, and I think I just cooked the wrong ones


they were awesome though!

chopped onions, red pepper, corn meal, egg, salsa, corn....they were yummy

sure think they were more than 2 points though

All these recipes were posted before LC WW was released. Can you give some details about the guidelines of LC WW?? Daily limits/requirements, etc?

I do not think there are any LC plans for WW. They are promoting a healthier whole foods option. For those that do the LC, it's just a matter of preference, I believe.

In the new program book they show the options you can choose for lower carb, gluten free, nearly no cook, vegetarian and simply filling. So no, not a totally low carb plan but thankfully finally, hopefully a step in the right direction.

I'm doing my own LC version of WW, because I know what a lot of carbs can do to me

Thanks! Maybe I should go back to meetings for awhile (I'm a life-timer who let life get in the way!). ..

I'm a lifer too, since 1972 who let life get in the way many times. I'm blessed to say for the last 15 years I've weighed in monthly and never gone over my goal. I don't eat WW style, I eat low carb, but the weigh in helps me be accountable to myself.

Hi Tammy
Nice to see you again. I am going to WW too. I really like it. My losses are slow due to my bad thyroid & it is getting worse it seems. Dr. says it will be extremely hard for me to loose. But I have lost 27 lbs since joining WW.

I have my ups and downs. Two down, one up, or one down two, one up, so on and so on. But I am not quitting this time around
Hugs to you my friend

Berta 27lbs is great! It all adds up and makes a difference. I'm thinking of trying to start up another support thread for WW since the last thread was June 2015. Not sure if there's enuf people interested to carry another thread. I've lost right at 10lbs in just over a month, so slow but sure for me also and I'm making lots of lifestyle changes.

These are really, really good and only 2 Smart Points each. Recipe makes ten.

Strawberry Banana muffins 2 SP per muffin

150 grams(one reg. container) nonfat Greek yogurt(any brand), plain, strawberry or vanilla would work.
1 egg
1 egg white
1 TBS brown sugar
1 large banana mashed
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup strawberries cleaned,and cut into tiny pieces

1. Preheat oven to 350 F. spray a muffin tin with nonstick spray. Spray ten holes.

2. In a bowl beat together the egg and egg whites, and brown sugar.
Add in yogurt, mashed banana and vanilla and continue beating for one minute.

3. Stir in the flour,baking powder and baking soda. Gently fold in your diced strawberries

4.Divide into ten muffin cups and bake for approx. 25 minutes.

5. Let cool 5 minutes. Makes 10 muffins at 2 Smart Points each.

I haven't the nutrition on these, but the recipe was put into the WW recipe builder for the amount of Smart Points.

Hi Sue
I would love that! It only takes a few to start. Go for it
I have TONS & TONS of recipes that are WW friendly.

How are you liking the new plan?
Myself I am not losing as well.BUT I have a very bad thyroid and Dr is going to up my doses.So maybe that will help? We'll see. I lost much better on the old Points Plus.
I know this SP is much healthier way of eating.I have diabetes 2. So I know it is much better for me. But I like sweets so actually that is the only reason I like the other plan better.

Let me know if you start another Weight Watchers Board.
My weigh in is Tuesday evenings. When are yours?

I hope you have a great on plan week

I did this last night, MMMM!!

I made a few changes, or should I say I left stuff out

I didn't use lime zest.
I also didn't use the jalapeno

GRILLED CHICKEN WITH STRAWBERRY AND JALAPENO SALSA
1 medium lime
2 tsp. minced garlic
2 tsp. olive oil, divided
1/2 tsp. salt
freshly ground pepper
4 (1/4 lb.) skinless boneless chicken breasts
2 cups 1/2-inch diced strawberries
1 cup 1/2-inch diced fresh pineapple
1/4 cup minced red onion
2 Tbsp. chopped cilantro or basil
2 tsp. minced jalapeño pepper
1 tsp. sugar

Preheat grill or grill pan. Zest lime; set aside. Juice lime; set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine 1 Tbsp. of the lime juice, garlic, 1/2 tsp. olive oil, salt and pepper. Add chicken, turn to coat both sides and set aside.

In another medium bowl, combine strawberries, pineapple, red onion, cilantro, jalapeño pepper, sugar, remaining lime juice, the lime zest and the remaining 1 1/2 tsp. olive oil. Taste for seasoning and add salt and/or extra minced jalapeño if you like it spicy.

Grill chicken breasts and serve with salsa spooned over top.

Serves 4
WW SmartPoints per serving: 3 (1 chicken breast and 2/3 cup salsa)

There is a lot to like about this recipe. I used lemon cake mix, and it is so good. I'm already trying to decide what my next flavor will be. Yummy.

WEIGHT WATCHERS 3 2 1 MICROWAVE MUG CAKE
2 PointsPlus or 3 SmartPoints
(Makes 46 individual cakes.)

For the 3 2 1 mix:
1 box (16 onces) angel food cake mix (The 1-step kind that only needs water.)
1 box (15.25 to 18.25 ounces) cake mix (any flavor)

For the Cake:
3 tablespoons of the 3 2 1 mix
2 tablespoons water

In a large airtight container or sealable plastic bag, whisk the two dry cake mixes until blended and free of lumps.

To make an individual cake: in a mug, use a fork to combine the 3 2 1 mix and water until blended and smooth.

Microwave on high for 1 minute, or until the center is just set.

Let cool slightly or entirely in the mug.

Serve plain or with desired topping.

Eat directly from the mug or gently remove onto a small plate.
