Recipes with Weight Watchers Points

On this page, I am creating an index of meal ideas and recipes I love.  When I have, and since I have, Weight Watcher points Figured out for so many (Winning Points), I will share that information as well for anyone who would like some tried-and-true recipes to choose from.

I place easy-to-grab-and-go items in the Fab Grab category, so you should never have a reason to cave when you are short on time!

I'll note Family Friendly when applicable.  I am now working on a Cholesterol-Friendly category as well and plan to mark recipes with an asterisk for heart healthy recipes! Please keep in mind that I am learning about Foods and how they affect cholesterol, so I am therefore not a professional in this regard and welcome any professional advice!

I started Weight Watchers with the old Winning Points system and still use it.  I tried a newer program, but I had already invested so much time in Figuring out points for the old plan for my recipes, I'm sticking with that one. If you would like to share the points values for any newer plans, please do, and I will include that information for others here too!

I also include nutritional information whenever I am able to, so you can Figure out the points for whichever plan you use. If I don't provide it, I plan to at a later date, but don't hesitate to Figure them out for yourself. It's pretty easy to do!
