10 Delicious Weight Watchers™ Meals

I started the Weight Watchers Freestyle Program™ at the beginning of January, 2018.  These Weight Watchers Freestyle™ Meals were (are) my saving grace.

I got a little too fluffy when I was pregnant. 

I’ve lost most of the “baby weight” but I’m not at a weight that I’m happy with, so off to Weight Watchers™ I went. 

At the time, they had recently started a new program called Weight Watchers Freestyle™, and I have to say, I like it. 

I thought it would be difficult when I first started because anything with carbs in it equals higher points. 

However, you get extra points per week to splurge with or to add to your daily allotment. 

I also exercise quite frequently, and exercise equals extra points too, so that way I can have a few carbs and not feel deprived.

I struggled a bit the first week, but then I started to get into the groove and find foods that satisfied me.

I would say that the most important part in being successful on this program is having a plan in place and being prepared. 

Before I started, I did a search for Weight Watchers Freestyle™ recipes on the internet and found about 25 recipes I wanted to try. 

I’ve tried 19 of them so far and I’ve made a list of my top ten favorites so far.

10 Best WW Freestyle Meals

These recipes have really helped me stay on track. 

For me to succeed on any weight loss program, I can’t feel deprived. 

The minute I feel deprived I start to lose focus and usually end up falling off the wagon. 

These recipes not only kept my point intake low, they satisfied me and made me feel like I wasn’t on a “diet”. 

Weight Watchers™ really is about a lifestyle change, and with these recipes it’s been fairly easy to change my lifestyle.

I’ve included links to each recipe. 

Most of them you can make ahead, and my ultimate favorite ones are the ones you can make in the instant pot or crock pot. 

Who doesn’t love a hot dinner when you get home after a long day?

It also gives me more time to exercise as well. 

Instead of spending the time cooking dinner, I can spend that time sweatin’ to the oldies. 

The best part…I’ve had leftovers every day!

Do you have any must-make Weight Watchers Freestyle™ recipes?

I’m always ready to try a new recipe!


My Top 10 Favorite Weight Watchers Freestyle Meals

Weight Watchers Freestyle Meals♥ Chili!

Who doesn’t like chili on a cold day?

We’ve had some serious cold (and not so cold) days here in Wisconsin this past month.

This chili is so filling and delicious.

Here’s the best part…IT’S ZERO POINTS! Yes. Zero Points

That doesn’t mean you can eat the whole pot and still count it as zero points, but at zero points per serving, that leaves you with extra points for later in the day or week, or…you can have a piece of bread or crackers with the chili!

I use ground chicken because I prefer that over turkey, but I’m sure the turkey in the chili would be tasty too. 

Visit DIY Candy for the chili recipe here.

Weight Watchers Greek Chickpea SaladGreek Chickpea Salad

I don’t care for beans, but I love chickpeas. 

This salad is light but filling and tastes just like the food did when I was in Greece!

I love it because it is healthy and doesn’t take much to fill you up. 

A batch of this salad lasted me nearly a week.

It was nice because I could split up the portions to have ready for lunches each day. 

At zero points per serving, you can’t go wrong.

Chicken sits on top of an indoor grill pan browning.Balsamic Chicken with Mushrooms and Thyme

This recipe is easy to make and is DELICIOUS!

It almost tastes better reheated the next day too. 

The recipe calls for low sodium chicken broth, but I always use the no sodium broth and add my own amount of salt with each serving. 

It helps reduce water weight which equals a lower number on the scale. 

At one point for 6 ounces of chicken and a half a cup of mushrooms, this recipe is one you’ll keep coming back to.

Weight Watchers Freestyle MealsSloppy Joes

Made with extra lean ground beef, these taste just like the real thing. 

I get some low-calorie buns and enjoy them with a side salad.

Weight Watchers Freestyle mealsCrock Pot Jalapeno Popper Chicken Chili

Straight from the husband’s mouth, “This doesn’t taste like diet food.” 

This is so easy to make and is a great meal for those cold winter days. 

This is a wonderful example of comfort food lightened up. 

Make sure you wear gloves while chopping the jalapeno. 

I did not and ended up with a burning eyeball, but at least I had a full belly. 

We love this soup and you will too. 

It’s only 3 points for one and half cups, which is a good amount that will make you feel satisfied.

Sticky Buffalo Chicken Tenders

This is another comfort food that makes you feel like you’re cheating when you’re really not! 

This recipe calls for Frank’s Red Hot Sauce which is the only hot sauce I eat, but I’m sure it would be fine with any brand of hot sauce.

These almost make me feel like I’m eating chicken wings. 

You will not be disappointed!

♥ Steak!

Who doesn’t love a juicy steak?

There’s not much to say about this delicious recipe except that it’s easy and won’t disappoint. 

Visit Pointless Meals here for the steak recipe. 

♥ Easy Oven Fajitas

These fajitas are very simple to make and the batch is huge. 

We ate for almost three days off of the batch that I made. 

My husband is already asking when we’re going to have these again. 

The chicken mixture is one point per serving and we use flour tortillas which are three points each. 

You can use corn tortillas which are fewer points, but I like the flour ones the best. 

Add a little lime and cilantro and yummy!

Visit Budget Bytes for the fajitas recipe here.

Broccoli Cheese Soup

This soup uses chopped broccoli, chicken broth, Rotel and Velveeta. 

It’s only 3 points for a cup and delicious. 

This recipe makes a huge batch and lasts almost a week in this house. 

Visit Skinnypoints for the Broccoli Cheese Soup recipe here.  

Loaded Cauliflower Bake

I made this as a side dish one night when I baked some chicken breasts and we were instantly hooked!

The creamy goodness of this dish tastes a lot like loaded baked potatoes and is a healthier alternative to that. 

Who doesn’t love cheddar, chives, bacon and butter?

At two points for a 3/4 cup serving, why not have two?

Ole Mexican Xtreme Wellness High Fiber tortillas are only 1 pt and very tasty. I'm not a corn tortilla fan either so I get these and they are a good size.


Friday 15th of June 2018

Thank you Miranda! I'll have to see if my grocer carries them! Tortillas are versatile and I could use them in so many other recipes. Can't beat 1 point! Carissa

Your picture of that steak looks wonderful. To bad it's nowhere in your favorite thing to eat. It's a little decieving.


Wednesday 23rd of May 2018

Hi Denise! Thanks for stopping by. I'm sorry you missed the recipe but it's in there if you look a little harder. I hope you enjoy it! Carissa
