Crock Pot Sweet and Sour Cabbage Soup

(Weight Watchers Friendly Crock Pot Cooking Day 94) For a long time I resisted recipes for any kind of cabbage soup. I automatically associated “cabbage soup” with the boring bland Cabbage Soup Diet recipe. And I decided years ago that life was too short to subject myself to boring bland food in the name of weight […]

I hope you’ll try this slow cooker corned beef and cabbage for St. Patrick’s Day! For many of us, it wouldn’t be St. Patrick’s Day without indulging in a plate of corned beef and cabbage.

Here’s a simple shredded cabbage soup that is perfect when you want a nourishing way to compensate after several days of overindulgence.

Simple Weight Watchers Cabbage Bean Soup

I love soup. Eating a bowl of soup for lunch and/or dinner several times a week is one of my favorite strategies for staying slim. Studies show that people who eat a broth-based soup as part of a meal, especially a chunky one, eat less at the next meal, and fewer total calories throughout the […]

Slow Cooker Cabbage Soup with Chicken Apple Sausage

This slow cooker cabbage soup with chicken apple sausage is adapted from a recipe for cabbage soup with kielbasa that caught my eye in the Weight Watchers cookbook,  Simply Delicious : 245 No-Fuss Recipes–All 8 POINTS or Less.

Weight Watchers Apple Slaw

Here’s a fresh and crispy take on coleslaw perfect for fall.  Featured in the 10/21-10/27/12 Weight Watchers Weekly, its flavors and textures are a delicious combination of tangy, sweet and crunchy. I usually don’t think about coleslaw much after the end of summer barbecue season. But seeing this recipe caused me to reconsider. Brimming with ingredients I […]

Quick & Easy Low Fat Asian Slaw with Pineapple

Shredded green and red cabbage, carrots, chopped scallions, toasted sesame seeds, and pineapple tidbits tossed with a zingy low fat bottled Asian vinaigrette. To keep this Asian-inspired slaw, super quick and easy, I used already shredded red & green cabbage that I picked up at Fresh & Easy, since they didn’t have pre-shredded coleslaw mix […]

Skinny Leftover Corned Beef and Cabbage Soup

I used the leftovers from our St. Patrick’s Day corned beef and cabbage dinner to make this skinny leftover corned beef cabbage soup. I get such a kick out of turning leftovers into soup; transforming them into a completely different meal. There’s something so satisfying and frugal about it. Some of my best soups have […]

Corned Beef and Cabbage

      
Corned Beef and Cabbage

Although many people associate corned beef and cabbage with St. Patrick’s day and Ireland – and we enjoyed it yesterday for St. Patrick’s day –  it’s really more Irish-American than Irish. Corned Beef and Cabbage or New England boiled dinner (which is what my mom and grandmother always called it) is a simple traditional one […]
