Salty Sweet Goodness

Pardon the two consecutive Weight Watchers-related posts, but I’m high on them right now (as I always have been).  I just logged my first week (back) on the program and lost 3.2 pounds (yay).

Waiting in line to weigh in, they tempt you with all sorts of yummy looking foods to buy. So today I picked up one of their newer items – the Chocolate Pretzel Blast mini bars.  OMG.

These bars are 1 point each (for you non-Weight Watcher people … that is as low as a non-vegetable food goes), and they are delicious. I’ll go as far as to say every woman’s dream … sweet chocolate, salty pretzels, crunchy nuts, chewy caramel.  Tempted yet??

I am not sure if you can buy these in the regular grocery store or if they are available at meetings only. 

Diet or not, you are going to want to buy these.  They are great snacks and truly delicious to eat. 

If you cannot find them at either of the afore-mentioned locations, it looks like you can buy them at eCrater.com or on eBay.  Happy eating.

Turkey Joe’s

I have two big milestones coming up this October … my 30th birthday and my five-year wedding anniversary.  Naturally, I am trying to slim down for both.

In search of low-calorie/big-flavor recipes, I found a Weight Watchers recipe for Turkey Joes (think sloppy Joe’s with turkey instead of beef).

It was really good and didn’t taste like diet food at all.  Source: WeightWatchers.com

Here is the recipe.  Enjoy.

Ingredients

1 pound(s) lean ground turkey
1/2 medium bell pepper(s), chopped
1/2 medium sweet red pepper(s), chopped
1/2 medium onion(s), chopped
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1 cup(s) barbecue sauce
4 medium mixed-grain hamburger roll(s), sliced in half

Instructions

  • Brown turkey in a non-stick skillet coated with cooking spray, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain off liquid. Add peppers and onion and cook until tender, about 3 minutes.
  • Add barbecue sauce and cayenne pepper; heat thoroughly, stirring frequently, about 2 minutes.
  • Top bottom half of buns with turkey mixture; cover with top half of bun and serve.

Serves 4.  6 Weight Watchers points per serving. 15 minutes prep time.
