Do you want to find Weight Watchers-friendly recipes? Tasty recipes? Simple recipes? Add these 14 slow cooker dinners with low points to your menu plan.
When you’re using a weight loss program like Weight Watchers, it’s important to find foods that list nutritional information and Points values. Sure, you could purchase packaged foods that clearly define Points values–and they might seem like a healthy, convenient option. But listing a Points value doesn’t necessarily make a food healthy.
For example, some packaged food manufacturers remove fat and excess calories but replace them with sodium and/or artificial sweeteners that may be just as harmful to health. Learn more in The Truth about Artificial Sweeteners and Weight Gain.
