Salmon burgers. These are 4 points plus and can be purchased in the frozen food section at Costco.
Turkey Polish sausage. It's 1 point plus per ounce. I usually slice it thinly, cook it in a pan and then divide it into two-ounce portions to add to my meals. It's great on salads or with quinoa and veggies. This is from ALDI's Fit & Active line.
Frozen veggies. Most vegetables have zero points in the Weight Watchers program. I'm particularly fond of the vegetable mixes that you can steam in the bag. It makes meal prep really easy. Favorites: Broccoli snow pea stir fry mix, California vegetable medley. I get these at ALDI, Costco, Wal-Mart and Jewel.
Fruits! Most of these are also zero points on Weight Watchers. I eat at least three pieces of fruit per day. I prefer oranges, apples and bananas because they're highly portable.
Zucchini. A zero points plus food, I like it either as pasta-sauce topped zucchini boats or sliced using a julienne peeler. Then, it reminds me of spaghetti after I cook it in the microwave for two minutes. It makes a great side dish.
Spicy mustard. This is a zero-point condiment that I really enjoy on turkey burgers and salads (strange, but true). This particular brand is from ALDI.
Nonfat Greek yogurt. It's 3 points plus for one cup. Add a bunch of thawed strawberries and a touch of splenda, and it's a great dessert. This particular package is from ALDI (the dog in the background is all mine, not available in stores).
Unsweetened, plain almond milk. I drank almond milk before I started Weight Watchers and prefer it instead of regular milk. It's 1 to 2 points plus per cup, depending on the brand you purchase. I use it in my coffee, oatmeal and cereal. This is the ALDI brand.
Peanut butter, obviously. I love peanut butter so hard. I eat it every day. All peanut butters are 5 points plus for two Tablespoons, so I've been on a quest for the best. I'll write a whole post about my favorite peanut butters soon, but this one is from Trader Joe's. Browse my favorite peanut butter recipes (some are healthy, some are not).
Trader Joe's Extra Dark Chocolate Wedges. These are so super awesome. Each wedge is 1 point plus. It's the perfect evening treat if I have the points left at the end of the day. Browse my favorite chocolate recipes (some are healthy, some are not).
Thai Red Curry Sauce. This is another Trader Joe's favorite. It's 2 points plus per 1/4 cup. I usually use two Tablespoons (1 point) on top of a mixture of quinoa, tilapia and veggies for a super tasty meal. This jazzes up veggies and chicken nicely without being too spicy.
Mision Carb Smart Tortillas. I initially bought these for Tim and ended up eating many of these. They're 1 point plus per tortilla and are great for taco night. They also toast well, so I use these for breakfast often. I got these at Wal-Mart or Jewel.
Quinoa. This is another food I eat almost daily. It's 3 points plus for a half cup, which I use in place of rice or another starch. I make a large pot at the beginning of the week and add it to meals as needed. You can buy quinoa almost anywhere. I purchased a large container from Costco, which lasts our little family several months. If you're unsure what to do with it, here's how I prepare my quinoa. You can also browse my favorite recipes with quinoa.
Spaghetti squash. It's zero points plus on Weight Watchers, easy to prepare and an amazing pasta substitute. Here's how I prepare my spaghetti squash.
Oatmeal. How I love thee. Oatmeal is four points plus for 1/4 cup of steel cut oats and 4 points plus for a 1/2 cup of instant oats. I keep both around. If I eat breakfast at home, I like to make Bob's Mill Steel Cut Oats. If I eat breakfast at work, instant oatmeal rocks. I top my oats with sliced bananas and peanut butter, microwave-baked apples and nuts, or defrosted frozen berries. Browse my tried and true oatmeal recipes now.
Turkey burger. Yum. These are five points plus per burger. I buy my turkey burgers in the frozen food section at Costco. This is my go-to dinner.
Eggs. Three egg whites are 1 point plus and 1 egg is 2 points plus. I eat at least three egg whites, scrambled or hard boiled, every day.
