If you want to lose weight, you should know that Weight Watchers recipes are designed to help you melt off the fat. Weight Watchers is a U.S.-based corporate organization that provides goods and services that help with weight loss and nutrition.
You may have already learned that eating breakfast on the road to weight loss is closely related to losing inches. The essential morning meal will restart your metabolism, hook you up with long-lasting energy, stabilize blood sugar levels, and prevent you from overeating later. Not just any ole’s breakfast fits the bill.
If you want to see real results and give your lifestyle a big health boost, you need well-balanced meals with a proper nutrient distribution. Then again, to taste delicious and qualify as good, breakfasts need not be fancy and time-consuming. Up next we’ve got a fantastic brunch recipe for you.
Should Watchers Eat for Breakfast?
The Weight Watchers program provides its members with the freedom to eat anything they choose for breakfast. The plan encourages healthy choices through the SmartPoints food plan, although no particular food is off-limits.
From southwest slow cooker breakfast casserole to smoothies and sandwich breakfast recipes, you’ll find it all in the Weight Watchers SmartPoints program. Some of the favorites include omelet muffins, WW cooked oatmeal, and Low Fat Peach cookies.
Best Weight-Watchers Friendly Brunch Recipe: Individual Egg & Spinach Bowls
These individual bowls of eggs and spinach really take the guesswork out of portion control. Each serving provides balanced nutrition to fuel you with what you need to start your day off right. They’re also super easy to prepare, making dealing with busy mornings a snap.
On the weekend, you can bake them and have breakfast ready to grab-and-go over the whole week. By swapping the spinach for kale, you can easily customize your dish (or choose another one of your favorite leafy greens).
SmartPoints per serving: 1
- 8 large egg whites, (recommend free-range)
- 1 whole egg
- 1 cup baby spinach, torn or chopped into small pieces
- 1/2 cup diced tomatoes
- 1/4 cup feta cheese, fat-free
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- Kosher or sea salt to taste
- Preheat the oven to 350° C.
- Whisk all of the ingredients together in a medium mixing bowl. Lightly mist 4 (1/2 cup) ramekins with nonstick cooking spray and divide the mixture of eggs equally into bowls.
- Place ramekins on a cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until the eggs have puffed and are nearly in the center. Serve moist.
Cooking with Egg Whites
A lot of egg whites and one whole egg are required for this recipe. We like using lots of egg whites to keep the fat content down, but adding some egg yolks into the mix is alright. You see, the egg white contains almost all the protein, while the yolk is higher in cholesterol and fat.
Eating yolks definitely has benefits, as they are also high in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. You can also save your egg yolks to use in another recipe like a hollandaise sauce or for baked goods.
You can also buy a carton of egg whites from the store if you don’t want to bother figuring out what to do with the yolks. The organic brands tend, in our experience, to act almost like freshly separated egg whites when baked.
What You Should Know Before Going on a Weight Watchers Diet
What’s refreshing and daunting about Weight Watchers is that you get to find out what’s best for you so nothing is off limits. The key here is to have portion control.
You might also want to get a few tools to make your Weight Watchers journey easy. One of the greatest investments is a food scale which will help you measure things accurately so you are sticking to the points system.
These little spinach bites are perfect for breakfast any day of the week. To be successful with this diet, it’s important that you have the right foods on hand when you need a quick bite. Keeping low-point foods on hand such as PB2 powder, Kodiak cakes, Western Bagels, Quaker Oatmeal packets and tuna can help.
