Sometimes the hardest part about being on Weight Watchers — for me — is I find so many amazing foods I have no clue what I want to make. I know that sounds stupid — but, I’m serious!! I’ve done Weight Watchers a few times before, and my recipes usually had to come from cookbooks I bought at the meetings…and they didn’t even have the kinds of food I see now in the WW cookbooks.
On this current journey, there are ENDLESS blogs that calculate points, calories and nutritional content so tracking amazing food is easier. I wrote an article about just some of the great blogs I use — of course, one of my most favorite is Skinnytaste. I know most of you already know about these blogs, so I wanted to write one that showed people you can have delicious food without going overboard on calories.

My current obsession is Eat Yourself Skinny. I love the layout of her blog, the breakdown of recipes and points and just the variety of dishes she makes. I am definitely going to be making that amazing Funfetti Cake Dip. I mean, really? At only 3 PP for a serving, I will certainly enjoy it as my after-dinner snack. You really need to check out this blog!!
Last week I bought fresh mozzarella for a BBQ chicken pizza I made using a recipe from Cooking Light, and I had about 1/4 of a block of the fresh cheese I really didn’t want to throw away. I looked through Eat Yourself Skinny and found a perfect recipe to use up my cheese and a few random tomatoes I didn’t want going bad.
Score!!! Margherita Pizza. It was tasty, fresh and easy to make.
Here’s how it turned out:
Great fresh flavors for a warm (almost) summer day!
