Weight Watchers Points Plus Material Corrections

by DanicasDaily on December 8, 2010

Happy Hump Day all!  The message boards have been busy about changes to the Weight Watchers Points Plus Dining Out Guide, Complete Food Companion and Pocket Guide.  Thanks to one awesome reader, (Maura!), I have all the information you need to print out the corrected information and put it in your books.

Not sure why the meetings do not include these as handouts other than they probably want people to buy the books without a hitch.  Either way….The latest version I have is version 7 issued on 12/01/2010.  If you have a more recent one, feel free to send it along and I will post it for everyone.

Ok…..Product review catch up time!

Did you all know that Whole Foods is now carrying refrigerated Organic Almond & Soy Milk? 

I LOVE using Almond Milk in smoothies and when I just want something different from milk.  I first discovered Almond Milk during my Vegan Adventures and I LOVED it.  The ever AMAZING peeps at Whole Foods sent me a gift card so I could try it out.

The BEST part is its only 1 POINTS+ per cup.  So, if you are looking to make a super low point smoothie with FREE first, this is what you want Smile

It’s super thick and creamy with just hints of raw almond flavor.  They make sweetened and vanilla flavors as well.

The “secret” ingredients in today’s smoothie….Yup, I totally used my Biscoff Spread!

Eh, 3 points+ a serving is a lot for a 1/4 cup, but, it’s only 1 point+ by the tablespoon.

For those wondering who makes this Pumpkin Spice Granola.

1/2 c Frozen Farmer’s Market Organic Strawberries (0 pts+)

1 banana (0 pts+)

1 Tbsp of the BEST Spread you will ever eat – Biscoff (2 pts+)

1 cup WF Organic Almond Milk (1 pts+)

1 Tbsp Pumpkin Spice Granola for added crunch (1 pts+)

Deliciousness!

My smoothie actually kept me full for 3 hours before I busted into one of these FiberOne Chewy Oats & Strawberry Bars.  It’s been so long since I have had one of these bars and I couldn’t resist how good this flavor sounded when the FiberOne folks asked if I wanted to give them a try.

3 points+ a bar isn’t too bad.  4 is definitely my limit Winking smile

IMG_1943IMG_1944

These are as delicious as they sound ~ crunchy granola, nutty almonds and loads of chewy strawberries.  The strawberries are definitely my favorite part.

Lunch was some more leftover Baked Turkey & Bacon Macaroni & Cheese Goodness with an orange.  I have 4 cups today for (13 pts+)

New Trader Joe’s Product Alert!  Have you all seen these Social Snacker Crackers and Cheese Squares????

IMG_2980

3 points+ for 8 cracker’s isn’t too bad when you are eating a buttery, crispy, melt in your mouth sociable!

IMG_2981

I actually bought the cheese without checking the points+ first (I know, it was an impulse buy ~ I LOVE cheese and can’t help it LOL).  I am pretty darn excited to tell you that it’s only 1 points+ a slice! Open-mouthed smile

IMG_2983

I think I could “almost” sustain on cheese and crackers!  6 points+ and worth every one.

IMG_2988

I actually pondered added soup to make it a complete dinner, but, decided that since The Husband had to work late, I’d have fun in the kitchen.

I have honestly been wanting to make Cara’s Spaghetti Squash Torta ever since I first saw her guest post over at Dani Spies.  Ok, since I am being honest, let me just say I have like 50+ recipes from Dani bookmarked that I want to make Open-mouthed smile

It may sound intimidating, but, it’s actually pretty easy to make.

I whipped up all the ingredients while I roasted my spaghetti squash in the oven at 425 for 45 minutes.

Sauté your onions and mushrooms until soft and the water releases.  Add Italian sausage, garlic and crushed red pepper flakes.

Wilt in your spinach, season with salt & pepper.

IMG_2996

Whisk together 1 egg with a container of ricotta, parmesan, garlic salt and pepper. – Looks like cookie dough, huh?

IMG_2998

Add in the roasted spaghetti squash.  Stir to combine.

IMG_3000

Then layer it up using half of everything, then, repeating ending with CHEESE!

IMG_3002IMG_3004IMG_3005IMG_3007

Tadah!!!  I’ve never made a “strata” before but I consider it a success because it didn’t fall apart when I took the spring form off Open-mouthed smile

IMG_3015

Cara, you are AMAZING!  This has the flavor of lasagna complimented by the sausage and the crunchy spaghetti squash. 

I had TWO slices like this for a total of 7 points+ (spaghetti squash & all the veggies = 0!)

I know I am behind on your emails, comments and tweets, but, will catch up soon! 

Stay tuned for another AWESOME GIVEAWAY coming up tomorrow.  For now, I need some zzzzz’s!

Night all!
