My favorite Weight Watcher's recipes

I've blogged in the past about cooking for the local shelter, including a blog about one of my own recipes. Often though, the dishes I prepare are based on [relatively]healthy Weight Watchers recipes. As a co-worker recently asked me to share some of my favorites, I thought it made sense to post them to my blog, just in case anyone else is interested (or wants to share them with others). Here they are:

  • Roasted Vegetables (This is one of my FAVORITE recipes, easy and delicious, and it goes with practically anything. Here's a pic.)
  • Spaghetti Pie (Note: I use whole grain spaghetti to make it healthier, and I substitute egg beaters for eggs and also substitute a little butter-flavored cooking spray and an extra 1/4 c, of egg beaters for the margarine to make the recipe even more low-fat. Here's a pic.)
  • Pot-Luck Pasta Salad (Here's a pic).
  • Sweet Potato and Squash Bake (Here's a pic).
  • Shrimp and Sausage Jambalaya (Note: I substitute butter-flavored spray for the margarine, and Uncle Ben's Converted Brown Rice for the white rice to reduce the fat even more and make it healthier)
  • 15-Minute Chicken Gumbo (A recipe I like to make in advance and keep individual servings of in the freezer as a quick warm-up after cold Fall and Winter outdoor astronomy observing sessions).

PS: Here's a tweet you can use if you'd like to share this recipe blog with others via social media:
