15 Weight Watcher Recipes for a New Year

I want to be honest, I’ve done this post today more for me than you. It’s the new year, so it is time to get serious about dropping a few pounds. Like most people, I think I say that every year after the holidays. After plowing through Peppermint Desserts, Pumpkin Cake, and endless cookies, it’s time to buckle down and just stop. Eating so much junk, that is.

Since I was about 16, I’ve tried every diet in the book over the years. Cabbage soup diet, Adkins, the Military Diet (that one was short-lived!), Special K diet, Slimfast, Weight Watchers and just plain starving myself (another short-lived attempt!) were among the few to try to lose that 10-15 lbs that is always hanging around. The only thing that has ever shown me true results has been Weight Watchers because it allows me to eat like a real person. I’m not big on cutting out an entire food group because basically I like food too much. Plus, if you tell me that I can’t have sweets or dessert anymore – I might just die. Just kidding. Kind of.

I’m going to get back on the Weight Watchers wagon this month. I’m not ready to jump into it with both feet yet and attend all the meetings but I’m going to start planning our dinners with Weight Watchers in mind.

So, this post is basically to round-up some great ideas to get me started. I’m the WORST with dinner planning. I can only ever think of 3-4 of the same things to make every night. I have no creativity when it comes to dinner planning whatsoever and this year I plan to change that.

I’m going to plan ahead and have an arsenal of great Weight Watcher (WW) friendly recipes ready to go. Whether you are following the Weight Watchers plan exactly, toying with the idea or just want some healthy options for the family, there are 15 great recipes below to choose from.

NOTE: Some of these recipes are listed with the old WW point system so you may have to convert to see how they match up with the current WW program.

Sure, I’d like to dip these bad boys in chocolate but they are also tasty as they are with only 3 WW points for 4 bites.  Plus, they make a delicious post-workout snack.

Spaghetti Pie

This is a twist on the traditional spaghetti that I can get behind. Stuffed with meat, cheese and pasta and it is still WW-friendly.

This is cheesy, meaty, saucy pasta bliss. I love a good meaty tomato sauce and when it’s spooned over a thick, hearty wedge of pasta with four cheeses?
