Just in case you don’t know, Weight Watchers use a point system that’s very much like, counting calories, what I will do for the sake of confusion is list how many calories are in each recipe.
Weight Watchers Recipes #1
Baked eggs with smoked salmon and spinach
This is perfect for breakfast but just as tasty any time of the day. High in protein from the egg and smoked salmon and a good source of fibre from the spinach to keep you fuller for longer.
Serves – 6. Prep time – 10 minutes. Cook time – 15 mins. Calories – 193 per serving
- 6 eggs
- 3 tablespoons half fat creme fraiche
- 180g of smoked salmon
- 1 tablespoon of fresh dill
- cooking spray (preferably calorie controlled)
How to cook and serve
As always make sure the cooker is preheated, 180 degrees if the fan and 200 if normal, whilst waiting for the cooker to preheat put spinach in the microwave to wilt, squeeze out any excess water, stir through the crème Fraiche and dill and season as you taste buds require.
Grab some ramekins, if you don’t have any click this link to buy some, mist the sides of the ramekins and split the spinach between them, flake the smoked salmon over the spinach and make a well in each ramekin, crack an egg into each ramekin. add salt and pepper if you want.
simply pop the ramekins in the oven and bake for 15 minutes the whites should be set and the yolks runny. serve and enjoy this amazing meal.
Weight Watchers Recipes #2
Posh fish fingers with chive dip and potatoes wedges
I absolutely love fish fingers and when I come across this recipe couldn’t wait to to make them, believe me, they were mouth watering.
This Recipe is great for a light lunch it’s quite carbohydrate heavy compared to the baked egg and salmon option, however, its loaded with goodness and quality carbs that will keep you energised.
Serves 2 -. Prep time 10 mins – Cook Time 35 – Calories 311 per dish
- Cooking spray (opt for calorie control spray)
- 2 tablespoons of couscous
- 150g floury potatoes don’t peel and cut into wedges
- Grated zest, 1 lemon
- 2 tablespoons of fresh flat parsley that’s chopped finely
- 1 tablespoon of skimmed milk
- 25 grams of low-fat mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon of paprika
- skinless salmon fillet ( cut into 6 strips)
- 1 tablespoon of chopped fresh chives
How to cook and serve
if you’re using a fan oven preheat to 180 degrees or 200 if it a conventional oven, the first thing you want to do is put your wedges in a roasting tin and mist them with cooking spray, roast these for 35 mins until nice and golden turning them once.
Whilst the wedges are roasting we can prepare the fish, start with combining the couscous, paprika,lemon zest and parsley in a bowl, now simply place and roll the fish in the bowl until coated, wrap the fish in a baking paper and mist, pop them in the oven alongside the wedges for 10 mins, these should look golden and must be cooked through.
Now that the wedges and fish are cooking, we need to prepare the dip, this is really easy, just mix the milk, lemon juice, chives and mayonnaise add season if you wish and then serve with salad and the lemon on the side.
These are just two fantastic Weight Watchers recipes, there are thousands out there to suit every walk of life, they are simple and easy to incorporate into a busy lifestyle and food preparation is key to losing weight.
I know all to well how easy it is to just through something in the microwave, but we owe it to ourselves and our loved ones just to invest some time in ourselves, preparing our own food is so much tastier and healthy you don’t have all the added sugar salt and preservatives.
