Recommended by a lovely young woman who I was speaking with while waiting for my car to be inspected. Some interesting recipes and she's converting them to PointsPlus. See the recipe I posted on the PointsPlus page.



Linda sent this article to me. It is certainly an eye opener. Who would have thunk? We think we're doing the right thing when we order a salad in a restaurant, right? Think again!

This is the website that I was talking about at the meeting on Monday. I have used it for Thanksgiving and It is great! There are so many choices to choose from, including desserts (my favorite :-)). When you get to the page look on the right hand side and the weight watchers links are located underneath helpful links and contact us. There are links under the holiday recipes. If you scroll toward the end of the page there are many other weight watcher links. I hope that everyone enjoys the recipes. Have a great holiday! -Erin

Erin, great find! You should all check it out. There are other WW recipes, not just holiday. Thanks, Erin!

Here's some info from Hungry Girl on the importance of protein for breakfast.

Protein... Yes, It ROCKS!

We've been singing protein's praises FOREVER. But now studies show that people who start their day with protein-packed breakfasts actually feel more satisfied and are more likely to stay on track throughout the day. Click for more on that. We're all about low-calorie, high-protein scrambles here at HG (go, Egg Beaters!). Click here for our Ginormous Oven-Baked Omelette recipe. And click HERE if you're interested in winning a Sunrise Surprise Party (a fully catered brunch bash for 25) at your very own home, hosted by Lisa, aka Hungry Girl herself. YEE-HAAAAAA!!!

You could order it used on Amazon for $2.82 + $3.99 S/H.

This one is from Sharon K:

Just surfing today and I came across a website call www.Slimtree.com. It is a free website where you can get short workouts by selecting what type of workout you want to do. I tried some today and it was great!

This is a great website to get nutritional info on foods that don't normally have a label, like fresh fruits or veggies.
