1 Point Recipes

I got these recipes from my WW meeting last night. They sounded so good so I thought I'd share them with those that are interested. Despite Thanksgiving dinner and pigging out on Pupusas I still lost 4.2 pounds. Not too shabby!!

Broccoli Cheese Soup
3 C chicken broth
16 oz frozen broccoli
16 oz frozen broccoli & cauliflower
10 oz light Velveeta
cook veggies in broth and then mash with potato masher. Add cheese and heat until melted.
1C=1 point

Fruit Salad
1 can crushed pineapple
1 box sugar free vanilla pudding
3 apples, cut up
1 C grapes, halved
1 C mini marshmallows
8 oz cool whip
Mix the pineapple with the pudding powder. Add apples, grapes, marshmallows and stir in cool whip. 1/2 C=1 point

1 can kidney beans
1 can black beans
1 can great Northern beans
1 sm can tomato sauce
1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 T sugar
1 C water
spices - basil, cumin or chili packet
Drain beans and then heat all ingredients.
1 C=1 point

Root Beer Float - only 1 point!! AND it counts as a dairy!!
1 vanilla WW smoothie
1 C ice
1 can diet rootbeer
Mix in blender.

I watched the Biggest Loser Where Are They Now? special. I saw that one of the previous winners gained all of his weight back. I felt his pain. I too gained almost of mine back too. But this time it's different. I'm glad that I've had this experience. I know that I can do it. And I know what it feels like to shop and have to get smaller sizes. I love my WW leader. And I know that I'm making a permanent lifestyle change!! I LOVE to eat (I know shocker huh?) and I'm so happy that I can enjoy cooking healthy again!! Ok...I'll stop my ranting!!

I'm pretty sure that pupusas do not count as any points. The euphoria they create is so intense that it completely offsets any and all calories and fat.
