As you may know, I am following Weight Watchers online, and have been posting some yummy Weight Watchers recipes along the way. I must admit, weight loss is slow by relatively steady.
We have been enjoying some great recipes from the Weight Watchers One Pot cookbook. I have a copy of this cookbook currently up for giveaway so stop by here and enter!
I had a bump in the road two weekends ago. At a family party, I went over my points. Let’s see, I had Chinese food, birthday cake and a couple glasses of wine. I guess I should be thankful I was only up by 1/2 pound!
I’m hanging in there, sticking to it, and by this coming Friday hope to hit a weight loss of 9 lbs. (It will be week #5).
I like to go to Trader Joes every so often and wanted to see what low-points foods I could try. The Champagne Pear Vinaigrette was recommended by someone following the program online as a low point salad dressing at one point per serving. Weight Watchers or not, this dressing is delicious – my new favorite!
I came up with this 7 ingredient salad that I thought was really yummy. If you give it a try, please let me know what you think!
Trader Joes Champagne Pear Vinaigrette Feta Pecan and Strawberry Salad
1/2 cup sliced strawberries
1/8 cup Feta Cheese (I used Athenos)
1/2 ounce Pecans, chopped
1/8 cup dried cherries (I used Mariani) chopped
2 Tbsp. TJ’s Champagne Pear Vinaigrette Salad Dressing
This salad is one serving and contains 7 Pointsplus. Enjoy!
Other Trader Joes low points foods I’ve tried
Chili Lime Chicken Burgers – 3 pointsplus per patty.
