WeightWatchers® Tip: Meal Prep When Possible Tip: Cut the Fat 

Snackers, take note! Get the crunch you’re craving by making pita chips in an Air-Fryer if you have one handy. Though butter and butter substitutes are a staple in American cuisine, why not lean into the most sacred Mediterranean kitchen principle by opting for olive oil. 

WeightWatchers® Tip: Meal Prep When Possible Tip: Use Fresh Flavors

Vegetables: tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, cucumber

Fruits: oranges, lemons, apples, avocado, zucchini, watermelon

Poultry: turkey, chicken, 

Seafood: salmon and shellfish, particularly mussels and shrimp

Fats / Proteins:  olives, avocados, nuts, legumes such as chickpeas

Simple Yet Satisfying Dinners

Pineapple Teriyaki Salmon Dinner

There are plenty of tasty ways to cook with seafood. For a tangy treat, whip up a Pineapple Teriyaki Salmon Dinner, compliments of @Lightenupwithlaura_ww 

Pineapple Teriyaki Salmon Dinner
  • 1/4 cup dry Success® Rice – 3 points 
  • 4 oz sockeye salmon – 3 points 
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce / teriyaki blend – 1 point
  • 1 cup cooked green beans
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds

WeightWatchers® Tip: Meal Prep When Possible Tip: Choose Quality Over Quantity

Depending on the seasoning, salmon is a protein that pairs well with both indulgent sauces and neutral sides. Why not level up your meal by selecting a richer variety like vibrant sockeye salmon? When you opt for more flavorful protein, you can simplify your recipe by reducing the amount of sauce and dressing needed. Cooking Tip: Adjust cooking time as sockeye salmon filets are generally thinner.
