Here’s a great fish recipe I tweaked from a previous Weight Watchers recipe I found on line. The best thing about this recipe is it’s baked in a foil packet. Cooking in a foil packet allows all the juices and flavours to marry nicely together. Foil recipes can also be used while camping which my hubby and I do a lot of in the summer. It’s quick, easy and an all in one meal. Foil cooking also allows for a nice clean up after. Just toss the foil packet in the garbage when your done. This recipe serves 2 people (4.5 WW points/serving). When cooking for more guests make sure to adjust the ingredients for the right amount.
2 – 4 ounce snapper filets
20 small cherry tomatoes halfed
1 cup canned artichoke hearts without oil, drained and quartered
1 clove garlic sliced
2 tsp fresh lemon juice
2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp table salt
1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
Preheat oven to 450ºF.
Tear off a 12-inch long piece of aluminum foil and place it on your work surface.
Place one fish fillet in the center of the foil and top with half the cherry tomatoes, artichoke hearts and garlic.
Add half the lemon juice, oregano, thyme, salt and pepper to each packet.
Bring the two long sides of the foil together over the fillet; fold and crimp closed.
Make sure the packet is completely sealed with no leaks or holes.
Transfer both packets to a large baking sheet and bake until hot and steaming, about 15-20 minutes.
Cool on the baking sheet 5 minutes then transfer each packet to an individual serving plate.
Here’s another Hungry Girl inspired meal. Extremely easy to make and again the kids and hubby will love it. Once again I was lucky enough to find this recipe on the web. Please click here for the recipe. I say inspired because I had an extra ounce of chicken I had to account for and I topped it with a tablespoon of low fat cheese. The total point value for the picture above (and below) is 5 points. The recipe, if followed to the letter is 3 WW points. My husband loved it so much he made me mark it as a definite meal to make again. If you’re into the cook books, this recipe can be found in the Hungry Girls’s 200 under 200 cookbook. There was so much food I could not stuff it all in my pita so I deconstructed it to eat it. My hubby on the other hand stuffed what he could in the pita and used the rest as a side dish. Enjoy my foodie followers.
It’s after the holidays and time to get back on track. This is a simple recipe and takes no time at all to prepare. Plus it’s finger foods so the kids may enjoy this for lunch or dinner. These are my Dill-icous Egg White Lettuce Cups. Wash three large romaine lettuce leaves and pat to dry. Take 3 hard boiled eggs and remove the yolks. Chop eggs into little square pieces and add 1 tsp of low fat mayonnaise and 1 tsp of mustard. Add a sprinkle or two of Dill and a little pepper and mix. Place egg mixture on romaine leaves and enjoy. Total Point value 2 points for the cups, plus 1 point for the side of orange. This was so refreshing after a week of horrible holiday eating.
A Little Tidbit: 1 whole egg yolk and all equates to 2 ww points. 3 egg whites equates to 1 ww points. Needless to say, I gave up on egg yolks and no longer eat them.
Every now and then I get the urge to try something new. Here’s a simple healthy dish from my Company’s Coming Low Fat Express Great Taste in 30 mins cookbook. If your not scared to try something new and easy for dinner this week may I suggest this amazing dish. You can’t go wrong when a full cup and a half is worth 3 WW Points.
Due to copyright reasons I can not post the recipe on my blog. If your really into healthy eating I highly suggest you buy this book as it’s full of great recipes.
