Rajma (Indian Style Red Beans)

Makes approximately 5 servings of 1 cup each. Nutrition for 1 cup of Rajma: Weight Watchers Points + 2 ~ Calories 103 ~ Fat .2g~ Carbs 35 g ~ Fiber 20 g ~ Protein 11 g

Rajma is my 3 year old’s favorite food.  Whenever I ask him what he wants for lunch or dinner….he always replies “beans and rice; the red ones”  So, needless to say that this is probably the single most cooked food in my house.  It is my go-to food when my son feels like being picky.  It is not his fault that he loves this dish; I think all children of North Indian descent grow up very fond of Rajma.  I know that I used to (and still do) ask my mom to make it as well.  It a a healthy comfort food that I hope you will enjoy as much as we do.  This low point, low fat, high fiber dish is a staple in our house.  Serve it up with some basmati rice & raita  for a low point  lunch or dinner.

Garden Tuna Salad

Weight Watchers points + 2 ~ Calories 75 ~ Fat 2.6 g ~ Carbs 3.9 g ~ Fiber 1.3 g ~ protein 10 g

Tuna Salad is so healthy & versatile, you can eat as a sandwich, or a wrap.  How about  on top of a big healthy salad; or crackers.  My low point alternative is to fill inside of  celery sticks, endive or make  fresh lettuce/spinach cups for a delicious lunch to go!  Sprinkle a little Italian seasoning and cracked fresh black pepper on top for increased flavor.   Make it on a Sunday and enjoy at work for the next few days.
