Why do some recipes on your website show one or two sets of Points® values, while others show three?
Weight Watchers has modified its Points plan several times since we began sharing recipes here on Simple Nourished Living. We decided to keep the previous plans Points information available for those who are not following WW most recent plan. Most of our recipes now include a link into the WW Recipe Builder so that if you are logged in you can easily check your points and/or track them.
Why do I sometimes get a different value when I plug your recipe’s nutritional info into the WW calculator?
We follow the same method as WW—using the WW Recipe Builder as opposed to the food calculator. Many foods have a value of zero and remain zero in recipes. Recipe values are determined by adding up the values of the individual ingredients, with some exceptions.
How can I determine the Points® value for an older one of your recipes (or any recipe)?
The best way to determine any recipe's SmartPoints® value is to plug the ingredients into the recipe builder set to your plan on the WW website. (from your My Day page, Click "Create" and select "Recipe.")
Where can I expect to see recipes with the current program’s Points® values?
All new Simple Nourished Living emails will include values that reflect the current WW® plan. To sign up for the daily emails and receive the latest recipes click here. Many of the recipes on our website are being updated to include the new Points® values. You can find our recipes here.

Why do you only provide select nutritional information for your recipes, but not sodium?
Simple-nourished-living.com, provides some nutritional information for recipes contained on this site, including calories, fat, fiber, carbohydrates and protein. This information, obtained from online calculators, is provided as a courtesy and is an estimate only. Although simple-nourished-living.com attempts to provide accurate nutritional information, these figures are only estimates.
Varying factors such as product types or brands used can change the nutritional information in any given recipe.
Other factors may change the nutritional information.
For example, when salt is listed "to taste," which is often done here on the site, providing a reliable sodium count is not possible. Therefore we don't include sodium values.
It is important to note that different online nutrition calculators can provide variable results.
To obtain the most accurate representation of the nutritional information in any given recipe, you should calculate the nutritional information with the actual ingredients used to make the recipe. This is the only way you can be sure the information is accurate for your recipe.
