Green Mango Smoothie


I love this, it’s refreshing and low on calories, while it still tastes amazing. It certainly has a freakish color too.

Banana Casserole

I’m not sure if Casserole is the right term here. I came up with this when I had already spend most of my WW points on potato tortilla dinner but still desperately wanted dessert.
I know mixing potatoes and bananas seems a bit weird at first, my family thought so too, but they all liked it in the end.

Beetroot Risotto

Just another version of the basic risotto recipe. Has a nice color and tastes a bit sweeter.

Mixed Berry Smoothie

Smoothies are good for really everything. Breakfast, Lunch, Dessert or just in between they’re always great. This recipe is nothing special just a basic berry smoothie, as I always do them.
It’s quite heavy for a smoothie so definitely more suitable as full breakfast or lunch.
For Weight Watchers, my Smoothies had 3 points (1 for yoghurt, 1 for milk and 1 for beetroot juice) and I made 2 servings out of it. If you want to add oatmeal and raisins you will be roughly at 6 points

Summer Pudding


This was the first time I ever made any kind of pudding. I think it turned out quite well, but was a bit below average when it comes the appearance. It tastes amazing though, so give it a try.

Honey – Mustard mashed Sweet Potatoes


I’m not quite sure of weight watchers policy with sweet potatoes, but apart from the potatoes, the dish barley contains any other points. Serve with vegetables of choice and maybe some meat or tofu and you get a great low points dinner

Cantuccini

I love this one. It’s delicious and you can store it for 2 – 3 days. Great for lazy afternoons and evenings, with some wine. It’s not really a cake, I guess, but I categorized it as one for a lack of a better term.

Risotto

I used a traditional Risotto recipe (just with a bit less fat) for this one and added green peppers, tomatoes and thyme but you can really use whatever kind of vegetable and spice you like, just have fun with it

Coconut – Couscous with Mango

Originally this was intended to be a dessert, but as it is so filling, it may be better suited as a main dish. I ate some of it again for breakfast the next morning and that was great too.

Onion baguettes with tomato – rosemary butter

The baguettes are great, but I particularly love the tomato butter, because it’s so simple to make and taste delicious. Works great as side dish or as lunch just by itself

Melon scoops in frozen yoghurt


It’s a great, healthy, substitute for ice cream, just be sure to use a very ripe melon. Low fat, low-calorie and easy to make.

Lentil Soup

Gosh, it was so hard to make a good picture of this. As you can see, I didn’t really succeed with that. But while it doesn’t look good this soup is delicious, simple to make filling, full of good proteins and extremely inexpensive. I paid 0,68€ for the lentils, 0,10€ for vegetable stock, roughly 0,80€ for potatoes and 0,80€ for carrots, so that’s a total of 2,38€ (3,04$, 1,97 £) for 6 – 7 servings of soup. Depending on how much vinegar and sugar you decide to add it may end up to be a bit more than that. But even if you decide to add a whole bottle of vinegar (roughly 1,19€) and 1 lb of sugar (roughly 0,89€) it’s still fairly inexpensive. Prices may vary from country to country though.
My grandma likes to add bacon and smoked pork chop to it, but I haven’t seen anyone do that in years and I prefer it without any meat, but if you like you can add some of that

Lemon Potatoes

Another great summer dish. Inexpensive and easy to prepare. I categorized it as dinner but it works great as lunch too. You can easily store it overnight and add to your lunchbox the next morning. It’s extremely low on weight watchers points too, with only 2 points for the potatoes itself and none for the marinade.

Apricot Meatballs with Mediterranean Dinner Rolls and Salsa

I’m not sure if it’s actually spanish but at least I got this recipe from an spanish exchange student. It certainley tastes kinda mediterranean and is great for warm summer nights, along with red wine.
My favourite part of this dish are the dinner rolls that go great with a lot of other dishes too

Papas Arrugadas with Vegetable Pancakes

If you’ve ever been to the Canary Islands, you will most likely have tried this dish. Traditionally it’s made from small potatoes that are boiled in sea – water, I like to add some onions and garlic though. The potatoes itself contain only 2 weight watchers points, the vegetable pancakes 2 or more each, depending on how much cheese you decide to add

Austrian Topfcreme

One of my favourites. Tastes delicious and takes less than 5 min to prepare. With the right ingredients it can also be a great Weight Watchers dessert. My dish had a total of 5 ww points, I made 2 servings of it, so that’s 2,5 points for each.

Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte (Black Forest Cake)


Very traditional german recipe and my fathers favourite. Unfortunately it’s usually very fattening but I tried to switch it up a little so it becomes a bit more healthy.

Avocado – Arugula Pesto


Very simple and low-calorie recipe. If you leave out the feta cheese the pesto itself does not have any weight watchers points and if you combine it with whole grain pasta you’ll have a great 3 points meal that takes less than 10 min

Pear – Apple Compote (on Yoghurt)


Very simple and healthy dessert. The kids I babysit always love it and its way better than the ones you can buy. The compote itself consists of fruits only and thus contains 0 Weight Watchers points.

Rhubarb Crumble

A bit different from the classic apple crumble but tastes just as good.

Asparagus – Gorgonzola Quiche

Ok, I have to admit,by definition, this is not actually a Quiche. But I don’t know what other name to use for this, so I just used Quiche, hoping no one would mind. I’ve been told it sounds very fancy, is very easy to make though.
Once you have dough settled you just mash the other ingredients together and but it in the oven.

Zucchini – Lemon Spaghetti


This is one of my favourites. It tastes kinda refreshing, like summer, is easy to make, very healthy and low on Weight Watchers points. Assuming you eat all of it alone, do not add parmesan and use whole grain spaghetti you will end up with only 7 points. But you can easily share it with 3 or 4 others and/or add less oil so you will have end up with fewer points.

Lemon Avocado Cake

When I was kid my favourite color was green, so for my birthday parties my Mom tried to make green dishes only. The cake actually does have quite a nice color but you can’t see it through the crust I added, so may want to leave that out. It also makes the cake very sweet so if you don’t like that add lemon icing instead or just leave it way it is
