An Amazing Weight Watcher's Recipe!

Pin It Now!

This photo from my iPhone does not do this salad justice but believe me when I say that it was AMAZING!  Even more amazing, it's a Weight Watchers recipe!  I had a feeling I would like it because it has some of my favorite things in it...spinach, bacon, chicken, blue cheese and mushrooms! 

I  made it Saturday night for Dan and I and then I made it again Sunday night for my daughter!  They both loved it too so I knew I had to share it with all of you!  I left the apples out the second time and I think I liked it better without them.  The only thing I did differently was use turkey bacon because I couldn't find any reduced-fat bacon which is what the recipe called for.  I think it would be great with some toasted walnuts on it but that would up the points value.  

The recipe is called Warm Spinach Salad with Bacon, Chicken and Blue Cheese. Click on that to go directly to the recipe.  (Edit:  I updated the link, it should work now)

I started back on Weight Watchers 3 weeks ago and I'm down 8.6 lbs!  It feels good to see the scale going back down again! In fact I'm lower than I've been in about 9 years!  I still have more to go but I feel so motivated now...especially when I can eat yummy food like this!

I'm toying with the idea of going back to WW it's the only thing that works for me! I clicked the link but I afraid it doesn't go to a recipe.

Thanks for sharing,

Cindy -- looks yummy! And for lower fat bacon, look at "center cut" bacon. It's cut from a less fatty part and therefore has less fat, but is still the great pork taste. Wonderfully crispy!

This looks so good! I started a super-strict diet this year and lost close to 20 pounds, but now that I have resumed my normal eating habits, the weight is creeping back up. I have been looking for new recipes that won't make me feel deprived, so I will have to try this one.
