Winter – Berry Muffins

Those are to die for. And they aren’t even that unhealthy, with close to no fat and fairly little added sugar. And they take less than 10 min to prepare. Now that they are selling all those huge christmas chocolate boxes I find this to be a better alternative if you’re craving something sweet. If you want to make it a bit sweeter you can add some chocolate drops and make sugary icing.

Honey Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Halloween is coming up and all of us are probably going to interact with pumpkins one way or the other. When you prepare food that includes pumpkin don’t waste the seeds. They’re so easy to process and make a great snack

Low Budget Homemade Granola Bars

The dried fruits and nuts in homemade granola bars can often make them rather expensive and bought ones are full of sugar and chemicals. So I tried to come up with a healthy alternative.

Healthy Dessert Wraps

 

Lovely dessert, but works well as lunch or snack too. If you feel like eating chocolate, eat this instead it’s really sweet but doesn’t contain as much fat or added sugar as chocolate

All natural & Vegan apple pie cookies

Granted, they are not as good as real apple pie, but considering how much of the unhealthy stuff you leave out, they’re a worthy alternative. Almost no fat or added sugar.

Celery Schnitzel

I put this into the German, Austrain&Swiss category, because Schnitzel is a pretty austrian dish, even though this has little to do with the original. The idea is simple. Instead using meat you just take slices of celery

No Sugar, No Butter, No Flour Banana Breakfast Muffins


They are a bit more chewy than normal muffins, so you have to eat them slower and get full sooner

I love this, so fresh and tasty. Try it out!

Bean Dip

If you like hot dishes this is amazing. No fat, no sugar just veggies. I guess this wouldn’t really be a zero points dish because canned veggies do have some points, but I honestly don’t see why. Of course you have to be carefull with canned food, but the cans I got contained beans/peppers and salt only. I don’t see whats wrong with that. They are a great alternative if you don’t have a lot of time. I’m also a big fan canned, peeled tomatoes for i.e. tomato soups. It’s just so much faster and I suck at peeling them.

Banana – Cherry Breakfast Milkshake

I literally lived off those the whole day today, but that’s alright because they contain almost everything you need during the course of a day.

Bean Taco Filling

I tried something different here and it worked out quite well. The filling itself also doesn’t have any weight watchers points, which makes it a great low-fat alternative to meat

Nordic Berry Muffins

Those are definitely a bit more “edgy” than the average muffin, so give it a try. They are less sweet but the cloves give them a very unique taste and I love it. On top of that they are also vegan and more healthy than the average muffin.
This probably isn’t a Scandinavian recipe, but I thought it tastes kinda nordic, so I put it into that category

Ice Cream Caipirinha

This is such a great and easy to make summer drink. I’m not sure if this is a traditional brazilian recipe but at least my friend Lisa who spend a year abroad in Brazil, back in grade 11, said her host parents often did this

Strawberry – Chilli Spring Rolls with Lemon Mascarpone dip

I had this for dinner but as I made very small spring rolls, they would have been great as snack or for some kind of Buffet too. I’m not quite sure how many WW points the dough has, but the filling doesn’t have any at all. For a more WW friendly dip simply replace mascarpone with yoghurt or quark.

Strawberry – Kiwi Smoothie

Strawberries were on sale this week, so I bought 3 lb of them. I also made delicious Strawberry – Chilli Spring Rolls out of them. The recipe will follow tomorrow.
This is a fairly thin smoothie but still pretty good. With 0 Weight Watchers points it’s also very healthy and contains not too many calories.

Egg Tuna Salad


Pretty cool high protein dish. I made this for BBQ party and it was quite a success. It’s not super healthy, but won’t ruin your diet either.

Coconut Treats

Those are just delicious. Full of sugar but still delicious.
unfortunately I forgot to take pictures of mine but I found one on the internet that looked exactly like mine, although they used quite a different (and more healthy recipe)

Gorgonzola Dressing

Dressing are often full of fat and so is this one. I didn’t use any oil but the gorgonzola itself is quite fattening.It’s still a lot healthier than the ones you can buy though and doesn’t take too much time to prepare.

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.

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

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.

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
