My name is Martha McKinnon.
My mission is to balance my love of food and desire to live happy, healthy and slim and help others to do the same.
I’ve written several best-selling eBooks & eCookbooks.
I’m obsessed with food and cooking and cookbooks.
While most of the recipes I share here can be considered light and healthy, some are definitely NOT, because this is also where I chose to “file” all the recipes I have tried and liked. As an avid baker and kitchen experimenter, this includes a considerable number of cookies and other sweet treats. For me at the end of the day it is all about the balance 🙂
My slow cookers are my number #1 kitchen secret for eating well while staying slim.
If you’re currently working on eating better, losing weight or cooking more, I’ve posted many helpful (I hope) resources through the years, including articles, success stories, and tons of WW friendly recipes along with the occasional indulgence here.
Please enjoy my website until it’s no longer helpful.

Disclaimer/Please Note: I began including nutritional information and Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS values on my recipes in September 2012. I’m a longtime Weight Watchers Lifetime Member who believes strongly in their message that it’s not about dieting; its about embracing a healthy lifestyle. I love that fruits and vegetables are now zero Points foods on the new SmartPoints program. But this site is not affiliated with Weight Watchers in any way.
What I write here is about my personal experience on the plan. The views expressed are my own and do not reflect the views of Weight Watchers and the truth is that I don’t religiously count/track Weight Watchers PointsPlus myself.
I became a lifetime member in the dark ages back before points and never fully transitioned to them. Do I know how to calculate points? YES! Do, I do it with any regularity? NO! It takes too much ongoing effort for a slacker like me.
I’ve been living at maintenance for several years now and when I feel myself getting out of control I transition to the Simply Filling technique until my weight stabilizes. It’s what works best for me. I’m also really excited about WW newest program which is called Freestyle in the US and Flex in the UK.
