Weight Watchers Simply the Best: 250 Prizewinning Family Recipes (Weight Watchers)
Synopses & Reviews
Simply the Best How do you find the very best, most appealing, low-fat recipes that actually taste great? By asking the experts. The 250 tempting recipes here are all prizewinning ideas from Weight Watchers members and staff—the people who understand the healthy eating guidelines of the Weight Watchers Program and experienced success firsthand following those guidelines. What's more, these blue-ribbon recipes have been tailored to Weight Watchers latest transformation for its Program 1 2 3 Success weight loss plan. This just-released, ground-breaking way to lose weight is designed for busy people who want to eat and cook delicious meals without the guilt. 1 2 3 Success is a breakthrough for Weight Watchers. It's easy to use and there are no forbidden foods. The luscious dishes in this book prove that healthy meals don't have to be a bore—or a chore. From all across the country, Canada, and even England, Weight Watchers members and leaders cook up fabulous fare that's welcome on any family's table. Sample Blueberry-Cashew Pancakes from Palmdale, California; a Grilled Portobello Sandwich that hails from Hendersonville, Tennessee; homey Scalloped Potatoes from Scarborough, Ontario, Canada; and a light repast of Angel Hair Pasta with Plum Tomatoes and Fresh Basil from a redheaded Duchess who loves her results with the 1 2 3 Success plan. Perk up your dinners with hearty entrées such as Chicken with Apricot Sauce, a Texas recipe that tames the heavy sauces used in French cooking or the easy One-Dish Turkey with Stuffing from New York. If it's beef you've been craving, satisfy the urge with Mushroom-Stuffed Beef from Reno, Nevada or Braised Lamb Shanks from Bakersfield, California. But Weight Watchers doesn't stop at entrées—the book is full of luscious side dishes that make your meals complete. We didn't forget dessert, either. Savor a creamy Chocolate-Amaretto Cheesecake from Phoenix, Arizona; heirloom Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies from Brooklyn Park, Minnesota; or a decadent Brownie Pie from Ivoryton, Connecticut. There's nothing like having your cake and eating it too! Because you are busy, we've added useful icons so you can see at a glance recipes that can be made ahead, prepared quickly, or microwaved, as well as meals complete in one pot, vegetarian entrées, and ones that are spicy—you can adjust them to suit your taste. So take advantage of the expertise of the Weight Watchers family, and enjoy the wonderful recipes here—each one is a winner!
