I get asked a lot “what’s a good, low point breakfast?” My favourite one is the 1 point egg white omelette. It’s tasty, filling and good for you! I use my little rock fry pan almost everyday making this up for my brekkie!

Here’s how:

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup kale, chopped
  • 1/2 cup egg whites

Directions:

  1. Fry your mushrooms in your non-stick rock fry pan or use a spray to grease a fry pan.
  2. Add in the kale and sautee some more.
  3. Add in your egg whites and cook till you can flip the omelet.
  4. Cook both sides and then serve with a spoonful of salsa over top!
  5. Add a serving of fresh fruit on the side and ta-da, healthy breakfast!
  6. Note: you can have onions, peppers, ham, bacon or cheese to this if you’d like but be sure to count the extra points for the meat/cheese!
  7. I like to buy my egg whites in a carton as it’s so much easier then separating the eggs and I hate to waste those yolks!

Being a weight watcher I end to find recipes or create recipes that are slimmed down versions of my favourite foods. Feel free to convert this to anyway you like your spaghetti but I like mine thick with veggies and a bit of meat too! I like to spiralize a few zucchini and have my sauce over zucchini which keeps the point value low and my carbs to a minimum! I hope you like my slimmed down version of spaghetti sauce!

Ingredients:

  • 1cup(s)fresh mushroom(s)
  • 1cup diced carrot(s)
  • 1cup diced uncooked onion(s)
  • 1 cup red pepper diced
  • 1 cup celery diced
  • 16oz uncooked ground turkey breast
  • 4 cup(s)no salt added diced tomatoes
  • 2 cups Italian tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp oregano and basil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Pepper flakes to taste

Directions:

  • Brown your ground turkey with the onions, peppers, celery and carrots. If there’s any fat, drain it off.
  • Add in your tomatoes and sauce and spices.
  • Simmer until bubbly and thickened.
  • Serve over zucchini noodles (spiralized) or shirataki noodles or spaghetti squash for low points.
  • 3 Smart points per cup of sauce.

Salsa is a life saver for me! I put it on eggs in the morning, use as a dip for veggies or tortillas, have it on chicken, Oh I could go on but you get the idea! It’s 0 WW points so have at it! This is a super easy recipe too! You will need a food processor for this recipe, maybe a good blender would work, not sure! Here goes:

Ingredients:

  • 3 cans of tomatoes, diced or whole
  • 2 small onions
  • 15 cloves of garlic, peeled
  • 6-8 jalapenos
  • 2 red peppers, chop roughly
  • 1 bunch cilantro, washed
  • 3 limes zested
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Put all of the ingredients in your food processor in batches till all are finely minced.
  2. Place in crock pot and let stew for 6 hours on low.
  3. Have ready your jars clean sterile with lids sterile as well.
  4. Ladle into your jars, wiping the rim clean and seal with sterile lids.
  5. Wrap in a large blanket or sleeping bag for 24 hours.
  6. Enjoy as you would any salsa!
  7. 0 Smart points per serving!

Here’s a dairy-free caramel sauce that is healthy to have! Enjoy with your Yonana, or yogurt or however you use caramel sauce!

  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

  2. Put all of the ingredients in the food processor and blend till it’s smooth.
