WW Recipe of the Day: Favorite WW Friendly Ways to Use Salsa
Confession: Salsa is far and away my favorite WW friendly condiment. Low in fat and calories, most have Zero Points. While homemade salsa is great, I often turn to jarred salsa for its convenience. There are so many flavors and brands to choose from. Mild to Spicy. Red, green, with fruit or beans and everything in between. The options available on grocery store shelves are endless.
Back when I first used Weight Watchers to slim down and become a lifetime member, early in the 1990s before Points, the program was more restrictive than it is today. You had a limited list of "free foods" from which to select when you had used up all your food exchanges for the day. That's when green beans mixed with salsa became a go to healthy "free snack" that saved me when hungry. It's a combination I still enjoy all these years later.
