Now that the weather is cooling down (it has already snowed here three days) I am starting to use my slow cooker that I received last Christmas from my Grandmother. I never realized how easy it was to use a slow cooker, just throw in random things and leave it to cook for 6-8 hours and it comes out amazing!
I went to bed thinking about what I could make the upcoming week. I was so excited I had to pull my laptop into bed to get some ideas. I came across some great ones but they all had high calorie ingredients that sounded yummy but I knew would throw off my points for the day. Most included a can of cream of ... soup. Anyone who loves soup but counts WW points knows cream based soups are super high in points.
This morning I decided I would scour my kitchen for something that I could throw together with some chicken breasts. Here's what I found...
I threw each of these in with 3 large chicken breasts.
2 servings of frozen corn
3 servings of frozen green beans
and I plan on adding some chili powder before serving.
I have figured out that if I divide the results into 6 servings they will be about 3 points each. When each item is divided up into a serving the only items with points are the chicken and the beans because the others are so low in calories and small servings! I am hoping that I can freeze/store these in serving sizes and replace my frozen meals with meals like these. I had all of this on hand so I am not sure how much it would cost but I can't imagine it would cost that much per serving. Much cheaper than $2 or more per frozen meal.
I haven't tried it yet but I am hoping that it turns out good, it is starting to smell good. I will let you know how it turns out.
