Good morning...and do I have a treat for you today!
A month ago, I decided it was time to loose a bit of weight and get back into shape. So I joined Weight Watchers. It was not my first time on this merry-go-round, but I heard they had a new program and a sale...so why not try again. I am happy to report, after five weeks, I have lost 6.8 lbs.
Similar to the points plus program they had before, we still give food a point value, now called Smart Points, to track our daily intake. The smart points are measured using calories, protein, sugar and fat. Veggies and fruit are zero points. I get to use 30 points a day.
I want to share with you, some of the great recipes, snacks and treats I am enjoying and how many points they are worth. Today I am sharing a recipe I made on the weekend for our house warming do. It's called:
Quick Vegetarian Chili
1 tsp canola oil
1 clove garlic, minced
14 1/2 oz stewed tomato(es)
15 oz canned kidney beans, rinsed and drained
15 oz canned yellow corn, drained
15 oz canned tomato sauce
1 tbsp chili powder
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 cup dehydrated onion flakes
1/4 tsp black pepper
4 tbsp low fat shredded cheddar cheese
