This is my absolute favorite meal to eat. Egg in a Cup!!! I actually run around the house singing egg in a cup bup bup bup egg in a cup. that is how excited I get when I make this simple dish. This is another dish I modified from the Hungry Girl Cookbooks. I am not a big fan of oil, butter, low fat butter flavour spray so when i am able to avoid this ingredient I do. This entire recipe is 2 weight watcher points (old) so feel free to add a side like a nice bowl of fruit or what ever your heart desires.
3 egg whites
1 strip of low fat turkey bacon cut into pieces (the type I use is 30 calories and 1g of fat for one piece)
1 low fat laughing cow wedge cut into a few pieces
1 chopped green onion stem or any other veggie you might like such as onions mushrooms or peppers.
Put 3 egg whites in a microwave safe mug it has to have some depth to it as the egg whites will grow and can spill over the cup. The christmas mug in the picture above is my dedicated egg in a cup mug it’s the perfect shape and size.
Place mug in a microwave and cook 20 seconds at a time until the egg whites are cooked. Stirring occasionally.
Add the chopped green onion, laughing cow cheese bits, turkey bacon and stir until nicely combined.
Place in microwave for another 15 seconds to set, remove and enjoy.
Note: It’s a good idea to soak the mug in some hot water once your done so the egg is easier to wash off the mug.
The plate used in the picture below is the same picture used in the first picture above. It’s quite a lot food for a low point value.
Here’s another great pizza recipe that my hubby came up with. We were in the fish area in the grocery store and he said hey, what if we made a smoked salmon pizza. It was a great idea and together we came up with this amazingly delicious pizza recipe. One quarter of the pizza is 5 weight watcher points (old). When we have pizza night I always eat a half of the pizza it’s way too good not to.
NOTE: I always use a pizza stone when baking. I received the Pampered Chef pizza stone as a gift a long time ago and it is still going strong. It never burns the food and it always comes out golden brown from pizzas to cookies to absolutely anything.
1 12 inch multigran thin pizza crust (1/4 cust 150 calories, 3g of fat, and 2g fiber, this is the same crust used in the Laughing Cow Cheese Pizza recipe I posted early in my blog)
3 Tablespoons non fat sour cream
4 Low fat laughing cow cheese wedges
1-2 Teaspoons of dill (I like to use fresh but I am sure the dried stuff would work just as well)
.5 a teaspoon of lemon juice
a pinch of pepper
1 85g package of smoked salmon give or take a few grams
half a small purple onion thinly sliced
Place flat bread in the oven a 300*F just to warm. About 10 – 15 mins.
While the crust is warming in the oven place the 4 laughing cow wedges in a bowl and heat up in the microwave and heat up slightly.
Add the sour cream, dill, lemon and pepper to the slightly melted cheese and stir.
Thinly slice the purple onions.
Open the package of smoked salmon
Remove the crust from the oven and top with the cream sauce.
Top with the purple onion and then add the smoked salmon.
You can either pop the pizza back in the over for a few minutes or just eat it right after the toppings go on.
This was a fun and easy dish to make. Not to mention super healthy, 3 weight watcher points for the whole recipe (2 zucchini halves). My husband each had one half and were super full once we finished eating. Feel free to pair this with some chicken or for a vegetarian meal omit the turkey bacon.
1 tbsp non fat sour cream
1/4 to 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp curry powder
1/2 small green pepper
1 tsp thyme
1 small onion
2 wedges of low fat laughing cow cheese
2 slices of blue menu turkey bacon from super store (optional)
Preheat your oven to 400 (200C)
Wash the zucchini’s and slice them in half length-ways
Spoon out the guts, leave about 1/2 an inch in until you end up with boat like shells.
Chop up the scooped out zucchini bits and place in a bowl.
Add the remaining ingredients in the bowl with the zucchini bits and stir
Scope mixture in to the zucchini boats and bake for 20 mins.
OK who doesn’t like pizza? I have searched and searched for a great low fat pizza recipe ever since I started my weight loss journey 4 years ago. I was in the super market in the bread aisle. I happened to look down and noticed this package that said pizza crust. I was intrigued so I pulled out my WW calculator to see what the points value was. I could not believe my eyes 3 WW points for a quarter of this huge pita pizza crust thing. I thought to myself why not, lets try it out for supper and see what happens. HOLY COW this is an amazing substitute for any pizza lover and it only takes 10 mins to cook (minus the time it takes to cook the chicken). The recipe and ingredients are below.
Step One: Buy this crust at superstore
Step Two: Cream 4 low fat Laughing Cow Cheese wedges with half a can of Tomato Paste. The one in the picture is Herbs and Garlic Tomato Paste.
Step Three: Add zucchini and mushrooms
Step Four: Add red pepper and purple onions
Step Five: Add 8 ounces of cooked chicken thighs and cook in oven at 425 degrees for 10 mins. I cooked these in the oven with a little bit of BBQ sauce.
Step Six: Take out of the oven and dig in. I will not lie, I had my one full quarter and enjoyed it so much I shared a quarter with my hubby. I could resist it’s that good. So good I danced around my kitchen in full enjoyment that I created a low fat substitute for Pizza.
Ok so sometimes I see a picture of a dish and it inspires me to create a healthier version of it. Here is a simple dish and if followed correctly will provide you with 3 WW points of happiness. The image above is my Egg Muffin Omelet. Here’s what you will need:
A greased muffin pan (I greased the pans with low fat becel margarine the one in the blue packaging)
A Rolling Pin
An oven set to 375 degrees
2 Egg Whites (for my Hubby I made his with one whole egg)
1 Green Onion
1 slice of low fat turkey bacon (I get the blue menu package from superstore)
1 Laughing Cow Cheese Wedge (the low fat one. It’s in a light blue packaging)
1 slice of weight watchers bread (I used the one that is 1 point for 2 slices according to the old points system)
A dash of Pepper (My husband got a dash of chili flakes to spice his up)
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. While the oven is warming grab your slices of bread and roll them out with a rolling pin just to flatten. Creatively place these is a well greased muffin pan so it forms a cute little cup. Don’t worry it will not be perfect and you will have a fold or two. Grab a small bowl and add your egg whites, green onion, turkey bacon sliced into little pieces, pepper and any other spices you wish to add. Stir. Grab your laughing cow cheese and cut into small pieces. Add to you egg mixture. One last stir of the egg mixture and pour into your bread cups and place in the over for about 20 – 25 mins. Once cooked pull from oven and carefully removed from muffin tins. Place on a plate, serve and enjoy.
NOTES: This was my first time baking these and they exploded as you can tell from the pictures. You could easily use two slices of bread and fill them half way up so the egg does not spill over as ours did. If you add that extra bread slice just make sure you count the points. The bread I use would only add an extra half point so no big deal. Below is a picture of my Hubby’s Egg Muffin Omelet (5 WW points) Full Egg and different cheese.
