Welcome to my Weight Watchers Friendly Weekly Recipe and Link Roundup
Encouragement and inspiration are critical whenever you're trying to change your habits. This is especially true when the habits involve eating better, losing weight and creating a healthy balanced lifestyle.
Sticking with the slow and steady sensible balanced approach to lasting change can seem dull and out of step when everywhere you look people seem to be swinging between overindulgent excess and extreme deprivation based diets.
Here are this week's hand-picked selections, as well as the newest and most popular recipes on Simple Nourished Living this week. Enjoy!

I have been indulging more than usual this summer. While the cheese curds, soft serve ice cream cones and other treats have been delicious, I'm feeling ready to lighten things up. For me that means focusing on slimming soups, salads, grilled chicken and vegetables for a while. Served up in various combinations, they make for light yet satisfying meals.
