Weight Watchers (WW) is known for being super easy to follow and is a realistic plan to stick to.
Now, it’s even easier with its digital access app and these incredible Weight Watcher recipes.
If you’re new to WW or if you’re on the fence, I get it. It can seem like a lot of work to figure out the points of everything you’re eating.
But when you think about it, how often do you eat totally new meals during the week.
Don’t we all stick to a few key dishes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner?
And if you make the switch to some of these recipes, you’ll find getting started a breeze.
Healthy Weight Watchers Recipes for Weight Loss
One of the best things about Weight Watchers is that it’s not restrictive.
Unlike some other diets where you cut out whole food groups, WW allows everything from tacos to pizza.
The trick is to plan ahead. So, if you know you’re having pizza for dinner, maybe opt for something with fewer points for lunch.
But if you know dinner is a healthy chicken salad, then you can easily indulge in a portion of these yummy pancakes.
And don’t forget, most fruits are pointless, so you can top these with all kinds of berries.
Muffins are a terrific way to start your day, but they’re not very ‘diet’ friendly.
Luckily, this Weight Watchers recipe will fill you up and satisfy your sweet tooth without using all your daily points.
Loaded with real apples, oats, and brown sugar, this tastes more like a thick oatmeal cookie. There’s also plenty of warmth from the cinnamon.
Depending on your plan, these are worth between 5 and 7 points, so to keep your breakfast low, maybe skip the creamer in your coffee on this day.
The beauty of choosing Weight Watchers is that you can devour all the fruits and veggies you like, and it doesn’t even count towards your daily points.
I don’t know about you, but any diet that tells me to cut out berries, bananas, and fresh veggies doesn’t sound that effective to me.
But in this case, the list of zero-point foods is longer than a CVS receipt.
So feel free to top this soup up with any leftover vegetables you might have in the fridge.
Let’s be honest — pizza is the thing we miss the most when we’re trying to eat healthy, right?
With the soft, tender base and the lashings of sauce and cheese on top, I end up dreaming about it.
I don’t think there’s a more perfect food than pizza!
This incredible two-ingredient dough is the same one used to make skinny bagels. All you’ll need is Greek yogurt and self-rising flour.
If you just want to try this before committing to a big bag of flour you might not use again, try making your own.
Just add 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon of salt to one cup of all-purpose flour.
Crunchy chicken usually involved dredging it in flour and egg followed by a blend of breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese.
I like to butterfly chicken breasts so they cook faster, but feel free to keep them whole if you prefer.
Either way, you shouldn’t have any problems keeping the coating in place without any egg. Just don’t handle the chicken too much after it’s dipped.
After years of being told carbs are the enemy, doctors are now saying that cutting carbs can negatively affect your health.
Carbs and gluten are not bad for you like we’ve been made to believe. Instead, just like any other food group, you need to moderate how much you eat.
So please, eat the bread! It’s delicious, soft, and perfect with a smear of salted butter. And at just four points, it’s worth every second.
I adore chicken salad, and I’ll happily eat it in a bowl on its own.
Usually, I’ll make it with bacon bits, mayo, and maybe chopped boiled eggs for added protein.
This recipe has a clever trick to cutting down on those calories.
Rather than adding mayo, you’ll add fat-free plain yogurt and olive oil mayo for a wonderfully creamy and equally as rich finish.
The grapes, apple, and nuts will give you plenty of texture and lovely sweetness, and you can add boiled eggs, too, if you want.
French fries might not be the best choice when you’re watching your weight, but roasted potatoes are fantastic as a side dish.
They’re tender, crisp on the edges, and being baked, they’re practically healthy. So much so that they’re on the zero-points lists.
Of course, these also include olive oil, garlic, rosemary, and salt & pepper, so this isn’t a totally zero-point dish.
Corn fritters are sunny, sweet, crisp, and go well with everything from salmon to roasted pork.
These also include zucchini for an added kick of zero-point goodness.
Stary by whisking the eggs with melted butter and milk, and remember to use skimmed milk to cut down on the calories.
To that, you’ll add the dry mix followed by corn, cheese, and zucchini.
To keep the zucchini from making these too wet, try sprinkling some salt over the top and leaving it in a strainer to drain.
Then, lightly squeeze it with a paper towel.
In my opinion, takeout always tastes so good because someone else made it. It’s naughty, cheap, lazy, and just what you’ll need after a long week.
But even if you’re trying to watch calories on Weight watchers, you can still indulge.
Beef and broccoli are pretty healthy, after all, and since this isn’t coated in a thick batter and then fried, you can have an extra spoonful.
This tuna salad is healthy, filling, and comes together in less than ten minutes.
Just blend fat-free mayonnaise with non-fat sour cream and dill until nice and smooth.
Then, stir through some diced onion, roasted red peppers, and water-packed tuna fish.
I’m not a fan of dill, so I opted for thyme and scallions instead. Also, this would work with plain, non-fat yogurt, too.
Authentic Italian pasta doesn’t rely on thick, heavy sauces to make its meals bright and tasty.
You’re more likely to see a big bowl of pasta or spaghetti with nothing more than olive oil and garlic than a creamy alfredo sauce.
Gently heat some olive oil and stir in the parsley and garlic. Keep it moving until it’s fragrant, and then toss in the pasta.
Finish it off the heat with a generous amount of Parmesan cheese on top.
Between the cream cheese, bacon, and cheddar cheese, crack chicken isn’t the healthiest meal on this list.
But this recipe calls for fat-free cream cheese and dry Ranch seasoning. That cuts back on so many calories while still making this creamy and delicious.
Plus, you’ll use boneless chicken breasts, which are packed with protein and super lean.
Chili is one of my go-to meals when I need something easy, filling, and packed with protein. All you’ll need is ground meat, beans, and a few key spices.
Although beef is richer in flavor, you can easily use something leaner, like chicken or turkey, because you don’t really taste the meat so much as the seasonings and veggies.
Not only that, but you can bulk chili out with all kinds of zero-point vegetables too. I like to add squash or sweet potato along with corn and even cauliflower.
We all know that zucchini fries won’t taste like real French fries.
But when you crave something salty and crisp, they can satisfy you without all those pesky calories.
The important thing is to remember that you need seasoning and plenty of it. Salt won’t cut it along, so grab the cayenne pepper, salt, and garlic powder!
Also, adding Parmesan cheese to the breadcrumbs will add flavor and make the fries extra crunchy.
One thing many weight loss programs have in common is their seeming hatred of cheese.
And I don’t know about you, but that’s one thing I just can’t give up.
So the fact that you can not only have cheese on Weight Watchers but that you can have a whole chicken quesadilla for only five points is quite a plus.
Just remember to buy low or reduced-fat cheese. Or, if you don’t like low-fat cheese, try using mozzarella with a sprinkle of nutritional yeast instead.
If you’re looking for a side dish for one of the recipes above but don’t want to waste a bunch of your daily points on fries or heavy pasta, this zero-point dish has you covered.
With the new WW system, you’ll be given a color plan, and each plan allows for slightly different points and ingredients.
So, check what veggies are zero-points for your plan, and then roast them with cooking spray, thyme, salt, and pepper.
Not only is this only three points per portion, but it uses pantry staples and comes together in under 20 minutes.
Unlike some other Asian-style sauces that require rice vinegar or mirin, all you’ll need to make this sauce is ketchup, soy sauce, honey, ginger, red pepper flakes, garlic, and green onions.
Serve it with this three-point easy fried rice from Weight Watchers.
If you’re not a fan of clam chowder but have a craving for something warm and creamy, you have to try this corn chowder recipe.
Start by softening the onions and carrots in a Dutch oven and then make a roux with flour, garlic, and veggie stock.
Where other recipes use heavy cream, this lower-calorie version has you blitz some of the corn and potato soup to give it a rich and creamy finish.
Weight Watchers and brownies? Could it be true?
Not only are these chocolatey and delicious, but they’re only 2-3 points per portion! With that low number, you could even have two.
To keep these low in points, you’ll use almond milk, unsweetened applesauce sauce, unsweetened cocoa powder, and sugar sweetener.
It’s this last ingredient that helps to keep these low in calories.
Lakanto Baking Sweetener is well-reviewed, but try out a few options to find the one you like the best.
Apple crisp is already pretty healthy when you compare it to cakes, cookies, and brownies.
It’s loaded with fruit, and the topping typically has oats for added fiber.
Since this has a lot less sugar than regular apple crisp, I suggest using sweet apples, like Fuji or Honeycrisp, as the more tart apples will stand out more without the added sugar.
The other major substitution in this is the use of light butter or margarine. Since this doesn’t need to rise, it doesn’t need full-fat butter.
It’s just to help bind the topping ingredients, so you could even use coconut oil if you wanted to, making this vegan to boot.
This fluffy pineapple cake is just five/six-point and full of amazing fruity flavors.
It’s so light, thanks to the whipped egg whites, which add a ton of air to the batter. And again, you’ll use light butter to cut down on calories.
As it’s full of crushed pineapple, it doesn’t need any frosting of whipped cream on top.
I’m a massive fan of fried rice, but I think we all know it’s not the most healthy of meals.
Of course, using brown rice, chicken breast, and low sodium soy sauce will help with that.
Another clever way to keep this low in points is to only use the whites of the eggs, which are high in protein but much better for you.
If you wanted to make this extra healthy, using cauliflower rice would drip the points even further.
Guess how many WW points this sweet little treat has? ZERO! Can you believe it?
We all know that I have a pretty hefty sweet tooth, so cutting out dessert is not an option for me. With this tasty recipe, I can have dessert every day.
All you’ll need is 0% Greek yogurt and sugar-free Jell-O in whatever flavor you like.
To get that airy, mousse-like texture, whisk the yogurt for 5 minutes, and then whisk it with the prepared Jell-O for another 10 minutes.
If your daily allowance is around 27-29 points, chances are, you won’t want to ‘waste’ 15 points on an extravagant breakfast.
Instead, it’s best to stick to around 1/4 of your daily points so that you have enough left over for a hearty lunch and dinner.
Luckily, this overnight oat recipe is just five points, so you can even have a latte alongside if you want.
The magic ingredient in this is the powdered peanut butter, which has all the flavor and none of the fat.
