I have a reallyyyyyy old one from Diet Workshop from like 20 years ago, but I still make it and just love the taste and texture of it. Take a jar of Not So Sloppy sloppy joe mix (they apparently still make it because I have seen it since I moved to Illinois last summer) or Manwich sauce and add to 1 pound of ground turkey which has been browned and drained. Take a bag of coleslaw mix and I usually add about a half a bag to the mixture. Stir in until the cabbage/carrot mix is coated with the sauce. Cover and let it simmer for about 15 minutes or so. Serve on a bun of your choice. I love the crunchy sweetness of the cabbage mix, and it adds fiber to your diet as well. Have no idea how that calculates into points on WW, like I said this is from at least 20 years ago. If you try it, let me know what you think.

PS I have also put this over baked potatoes and I like that too!!!

Default Weight Watcher Friendly recipes with points plus values

Pan seared Shrimp


16 large shrimp peeled and deveined tails left on
juice of one lemon
1 tsp parika
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp Kosher salt
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp garlic powder

Pat shrimp dry with paper towel, season both side with paprika, salt, garlic powder, red pepper flakes and Italian seasoning. Pre-heat large fry pan to medium high heat. Cook shrimp on both sides for 2 minutes each. Pan should sizzle when you add shrimp. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over the top and serve immediately. I made this last night and served it with rice and sauted fresh spinach W/garlic and oil. Serves 4 people or 2 very hungry people.
serves 4 people, 4 shrimp per person. 2 Pts plus per serving


Ginger Lime Chicken
1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
1/4 low sodium soy sauce
3 Tbsp fresh lime juice
2 tsp lime zest
2 Tbsp fresh ginger minced
2 cloves of garlic minced
1 Tbsp honey
2 tsp sesame oil
2 Tbsp scallions
1 Tbsp olive oil
In a large non-reactive bowl, combine soy sauce, lime juice, lime zest, ginger, garlic, honey, oil , mix well. Remove and reserve . Add chicken to bowl, tossing to make sure each piece is coated; refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours. Pre-heat a non stick skillet or you can grill these outside on your Grill until chicken is no longer pink. DO NOT over cook or chicken will be dry. You can also broil them under your broiler.

Serves 4 people and it's 1 chicken breast per person for 5 Pts plus.


Zucchini Fries

This is a baked version of the traditional fried zucchini sticks.

2 large zucchini's cut lengthwise and cut into zucchini sticks
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
2 eggs beaten with about 1/4 water added
salt and pepper
1 cup flour

Pre-heat oven to 400

Season beaten eggs & water with salt and pepper

dredge zucchini sticks in flour, then egg, then bread crumbs

Keep repeating until all zuchhini are coated.

take a cookie sheet lined with foil and place a cookie cooling rack on top. Spray rack with nonstick spray, place zucchini sticks in a single layer on rack. Spray with a little olive oil. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until zucchini is tender and crispy. no need to turn them because they will get browned on both sides this way. Serve with ranch or horseradish sauce.

Serves 4 people and it's 8 fries per serving . 3 Pts plus per serving

Balsamic Chicken with Mushrooms
1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
3 Tbsp balsamic Vinegar
2 Tsp Olive Oil
2 tsp dijon mustard
1 clove garlic chopped
1/3 cup low sodium chicken broth
1/4 tsp dry thyme or fresh if you have it
2 cups slcied fresh mushrooms, I used portabella.


In a nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon of oil.
In a medium bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of vinegar, the mustard and garlic. Add chicken and turn to coat.
Transfer chicken and marinade to skillet. Sauté chicken until cooked through, about 3 minutes on each side. Transfer chicken to a platter and keep warm.
Heat remaining teaspoon of oil in skillet. Sauté mushrooms for 1 minute. Add broth, thyme and remaining tablespoon of vinegar. Cook, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms are deep brown, about 2 minutes longer.
Serve chicken topped with mushrooms.

I got these from the WW E-tools website. I have made these many times and you wouldn't know they are low calorie and fat. serves 4 people and it's 4 Pts plus per serving= 1 chicken breast with mushrooms.

I am down gulp.....about 200lbs. Yes, I was a very large girl - decided I wasn't ready to die yet and got off my big fat tuckus and started over. It was my last hope - truly - and it saved and changed my life. My only regrets were allowing myself to get in that shape in the first place, and waiting so long to get the help I needed. Never again......
