Points Plus

If you are not a Weight Watcher's member, or if you live in a cave, you may not know that the Weight Watcher's system is based on how many points you are allowed to eat in a day to lose weight at a healthy rate while also learning portion control and a proper well balanced diet. So I will be talking a lot about PointsPlus values. Every food has a PointsPlus value based on .....

a) Protein
b) Carbs
c) Fat
d) Fiber

One of the things I love most about the meetings are all of the members and the new recipes they bring into the meetings, or the products they find while shopping. I get bored REALLY easy, so I love to try new things. I'll try just about ANYTHING for zero, or little points.

Newest find? Kale Chips! That's right! It's green and leafy and you can turn it into a CHIP!!! I LOVED it!


1 head of Kale, cleaned and patted dry, torn into bite size pieces
1 T. Olive oil (or Olive oil flavored cooking spray)
1 t. kosher salt (or seasoning of your choice)

Put kale on baking sheet covered with parchment paper, and bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes, or just until the edges begin to turn a little brown. Don't burn it!

Let cool, and enjoy!
