The new Weight Watchers Freestyle program allows a lot more freedom than prior programs. Sometimes I want to eat out, as most of us do. Boston Market is the first restaurant I’ve tried since starting Weight Watchers Freestyle. I was pleasantly surprised by the turkey breast dinner. It was delicious, and these were the points:
- Turkey breast – small or large 1
- Poultry gravy 1
- Rotisserie potatoes 4
- Steamed veggies 1
- Cornbread 7
Sure, that’s 14 points, but it was worth every wonderful bite. I still had 9 points left, and 4 rolled over to the next day.
I can’t wait to find other places to eat out. Oprah says you can eat anywhere. We’ll see!
1 lb ground turkey, 99% lean
1 14-oz can pinto beans
1 14-oz can kidney beans
1 onion, diced
1 cup celery, diced
1-1/2 cups chicken broth (I use Kitchen Basics unsalted)
1 6-oz can tomato sauce
1 15-oz can diced tomatoes
1 small can green chilis
1 Tbsp cumin
2 Tbsp chili powder
Salt and pepper to taste
Spray Instant Pot with Pam spray. Brown ground turkey. Add all other ingredients. Cook 35 minutes on manual setting.
My whole family loves this, and it’s zero points on Weight Watchers Freestyle.
I was feeling lazy, and hungry, this evening and not really wanting to cook. I just happened to have the perfect ingredients for a lazy dinner.
- Turkey meatballs, 1 bag
- 8 ounces whole wheat elbows – I used Silver Palate Low-Sodium Marinara
- 25-ounce jar pasta sauce
- 25 ounces chicken broth, no sodium added
Throw everything into the Instant Pot, put the lid on, seal, and set on 20 minutes manual setting.
Weight Watchers Points:
6 meatballs – 4
1/2 cup sauce – 3
1 cup pasta – 5
