WW Recipe of the Day: Slow Cooker Broccoli Corn Casserole
(124 calories | 5 5 5 myWW *SmartPoints value per serving)
I served this yummy slow cooker broccoli corn casserole with my first ever slow cooker whole chicken a couple weekends back.
Easy, creamy and delicious, this comforting casserole reminds me a lot of the vegetable casseroles Mom used to make for Sunday dinners when I was growing up.
The Skinny on Broccoli Corn Casserole
Most of the time these days I eat my vegetables either steamed or roasted.
So this quick and easy slow cooker broccoli corn casserole was a fun and tasty change of pace.
Here's a picture I shot of the leftovers the next day, which obviously are not as photogenic as they were the night before...
But, I don't think I'm ever going to be one of those bloggers who's willing to hold up sitting down to dinner with her family trying to capture the perfect shot. Especially when I'm hungry!
To shave a few calories and points from my slow cooker broccoli corn casserole and make it a bit more Weight Watchers friendly, I increased the amount of broccoli by ½ cup and decreased the french fried onions by the same amount.
According to my calculations, each serving has 124 calories and:

Today's food for thought…
"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined."
~ Henry David Thoreau
And weight loss tip…
Always portion out your food and put it in a dish. Studies show that when people pre-plate their food, they eat about 14% less than when they take smaller amounts and go back for seconds or thirds. Put everything you want to eat on a plate before you start eating - snacks, dinners, ice cream, and even chips. Your stomach won't have to count and you won't have to remember how much you took. Instead of eating directly out of the package or box, put your snack in a dish and put the box away. You'll be less likely to eat more and more and more!
