Weight Watchers Elk Cheeseburger Casserole

This is a recipe from WeightWatchers.com that I had to fix.  If you make it as they wrote it – its WAY TOO DRY!  So I fixed it  We also had a freezer full of elk – and its leaner than beef so I adjusted the recipe to use elk!

Keep in mind – your ingredient changes always change point values.  The points were figured on WeightWatchers.com’s recipe builder.

Enjoy!

Weight Watchers Wabbit Wrap Recipe

Hee Hee – see that was me trying to be funny with the name….how’d I do?

I am more and more addicted to wraps.  It’s a salad, but in a wrap – so its not like eating a salad.  If you’re really tight on points, whip this up and leave out the wrap!  I don’t buy the low point wraps, though.  Can’t find them out here in boonieville, and I like the tomato and herb and Spinach wraps from Mission.  The wrap/tortilla thingies I buy 5 WW points plus each.  You could find something with less points.  Also – don’t skimp on the vinegar, it really adds a zip!

So – if you make this wrap as written – it’s 7 points.  But it’s REALLY filling.  The wrap helps fill you up – and drink a big glass of water with it and you’re set for the afternoon!

Wonderful Weight Watchers Wabbit Wrap

Ingredients

  • 1 Spinach Wrap (your pick here, I like spinach or tomato - 5 points per wrap)
  • 1 Wedge Laughing Cow Light Cheese (1 point per wedge)
  • 2 oz Oscar Mayer Deli Fresh Cracked Black Pepper Turkey (or your fave kind - just be sure you include the points. This turkey is 1 point per 2oz)
  • 1/2 C Fresh Spinach
  • 4 leaves romain lettuce, chopped
  • 1/8th of a cucumber, sliced
  • 4 cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 2 Kosher Dill Pickles, minced
  • 2 Tbsp Red Onion, minced/diced
  • 2 Tbsp Carrot, Shredded
  • 1 tsp Red Wine Vinegar
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Instructions

  1. Toss the Turkey, Spinach, Lettuce, Cucumber, Pickles, Carrots, Onions in a large bowl. Sprinkle over vinegar and toss, salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Spread the wedge of cheese over the entire wrap - there should be plenty to get a nice layer all around it.
  3. Place the "salad" inside the wrap and fold in the ends, then roll it up and cut in half to serve.
  4. Yum!

Raspberry & Cucumber Smoothie – 3 WW PP

Yum!  I’m back on the WeightWatchers – after many years off.  I’ve tried SCORES of other options for losing weight and they all suck.  I’m hoping some good choices and way better online interface will help me stay motivated.

I whipped up this treat today looking for Weight Watchers Smoothies with ingredients I actually have in the house.  I wanted something sweet and cool for breakfast.  You can swap out Raspberries for Strawberries (they’re both Power Foods) and use english or regular cucumbers.  I used stevia in the raw, but honey would work very well, too!  Enjoy!
