Poblano peppers  are just a mild chili that goes great with any type of Mexican or Southwest cooking.  It makes a wonderful vegetarian side dish to accompany my chipotle chicken with mango avocado salsa...yum!!  If you are a vegetarian or participate in meatless Mondays, this dish is great as a meal.  The prep is quick & easy, so you can prep earlier in the week and just bake it off when you want.  It last for about 3 days prepped in the fridge.  So, all you have to do is after putting cheese on the top, cover and store in fridge for later in the week.   This is a great vegetarian dish that packs in the protein!  Enjoy &  Happy Eating!  🙂

I try to make a breakfast pie or Quiche on Sundays, this way I have a grab & go healthy breakfast waiting for me to take to work on Monday.  This breakfast pie is a healthier Quiche since I use hash brown potatoes as a crust.  I picked up that idea up from a cousin that is a registered dietician…you can check out her site HERE.   This 140 calorie & low points breakfast is an easy go to while doing weight watchers or if you are trying to get your waistline ready for the summer.   Enjoy!!  Read More…

Skinny Eggplant Parmesan

Nutrition Facts: 1 eggplant stack: Weight Watchers Points + 5 ~ Calories 202.5 ~ Fat 4.6 g ~ Carbs 33.1 g ~ Fiber 6.5 g ~ Protein 10.4 g

 I love ordering Eggplant Parm when we go out for an Italian meal.  However, as we know it is not the healthiest option.  My son and I occasionally go out to Olive Garden for lunch and their Eggplant Parm Lunch portion is 16 points!! whomp whomp ….and all this time I thought it was a healthier option.  Weight Watchers made me realize otherwise.  So, now I just make my own eggplant parm at home and I don’t have to feel guilty.  I used panko for a crispier texture; but feel free to use regular breadcrumbs.  Next time I may add a little Extra Virgin Olive Oil to the panko just to get it a little crispier.  I enjoy my eggplant parm with a side of angel hair pasta. If you are not in the mood for pasta, try it in a crusty loaf of bread or a side of salad for a super low point meal.  ENJOY!! Read More…
