Recipes from WW Magazine

Recommended Posts

I just received WW magazine and tried one of the recipes.

It's called WWM's Pizza Hot Dish in the Jan-Feb issue. :bcb_confu I don't know.

I won't repeat it. It tasted fine but it was a small portion for 5 points and was loaded with sodium. They transformed it from 12 points. Maybe if you just need to taste decadence OK, and with Superbowl it's a great education on how to reduce points and keep flavor, but not for me. I am used to being satisfied with recipes that have lots of veggies. Maybe I have been trying Core for so many weeks it seems "unclean." Ingredients include 5% fat ground beef, reduced-fat spaghetti sauce, can of reduced fat cream of chicken soup, reduced-fat cheddar, turley pepperoni and olives. As I said, it tasted fine, but if I wasn't on such a roll with weight loss, I could have eaten 4 portions. And I don't binge.


Would be interested to see if anyone else has tried it.

I haven't tried this one - but I find in general that WW recipes are very hit-and-miss. I have found some recipes that are surprisingly tasty and filling, while with others either the portion size (for me) is a bit of a joke or the recipe is bland, bland, bland...


I have also begun inputting some of my old non-WW recipes into Sparkrecipes.com. I was happy to find that I could ressurect some old favorite "non-diet" recipes that happen to be lower point.


Thanks for posting. I will put this one on my "do not try" list. :bcb_bigsm

I think we all have our threshold of "diet" foods. For some fat free sour cream is loved and used, for me, I use regular. I use Splenda in my coffee but I use sugar elsewhere. I think if you've been doing Core, you probably will be disappointed with some of these foods. Hang in there. I'm sure you could conjure up something more to your taste.
