For those people on Weight Watchers, sometimes a zero point recipe can save from what otherwise would have been a disaster of a day. I make zero point recipes part of my daily routine, but there are certain times I rely on them more then others. First of all, I almost always rely on a zero point breakfast and/or lunch when I know I have a fun evening event where I may want to indulge. Saving those points for a glass of wine, dessert, or heavier dinner allows me to indulge without too much worry. On the flipside, when I realize I have eaten almost all my daily points and it's only 3:00 PM, believe me that I pull out some zero point recipes for dinner. Sometimes this means a simple omelet, but when I have time I like to cook an actual dinner.
Even if you aren't on Weight Watchers, these recipes are still great options for dinner. They all are made with lean proteins. plenty of veggies, and fiber filled legumes and pulses. They are clean eating friendly and gluten free.
Soups, stews, and salads are one of the easiest things to make when you need a zero point meal or side dish. When it comes to salads, usually I just pile in whatever veggies I have at home with either some leftover cooked chicken or canned beans. Since dressing can be high in points, I will use lemon juice or a drizzle of balamic vinegar. You can also make some pretty delicious zero point dressing using nonfat Greek yogurt, fresh herbs, and lemon juice. I look at soups and stews the same way. All you need is some fat free chicken broth, veggies, and lean protein or beans. Consider adding a can of diced tomatoes for extra flavor. The combinations of virtually endless.
On the new Weight Watchers plan chicken breast, turkey breast, ground chicken breast, and 99% lean ground turkey all having zero points. That makes them a no brainer when it comes to building zero or low point meals. Think about flavoring the chicken or turkey with spices and fresh herbs that are also free. Then you can use cooking spray for cooking without adding points. Then add some veggies, a big salad, beans, or lentils to finish your meal.
Another option for an easy zero point meal is reaching for seafood, legumes, or pulses. Virtually all fresh fish and shellfish has zero points. One of my personal favorites is salmon since it is filling and works with all different flavor combinations. Usually I will throw it on the grill with some homemade blackening seasoning. Then I just throw some veggies alongside it and dinner is ready. When it comes to vegetarian meals, lentils are definitely my favorite. I love using them as a substitute in ground beef recipes since the texture is similar.
On some days, you may just need a zero point snack or dessert to get through the day. I love making zero point hummus using chickpeas and nonfat Greek yogurt. It is filling and you can make so many different flavors. When I don't have time to make a snack, I usually reach for nonfat Greek yogurt with a bunch of fruit or hard boiled eggs.
