Weight Watchers Cheese

If you read my personal blog, you will know that I just lost 50 lbs (woohoo me!). In doing so, I have found ways to enjoy the food everybody else is eating, but do it with less calories (and not sacrificing taste either!). It can be so easy to over indulge during backyard barbeques. Before you hold the cheese on that burger, rest assured that it’s possible to enjoy your favorite foods without all the calories!

I recently was able to try some of the new Weight Watcher cheese. We even brought it a 4th of July party for others to taste also.  Here is what we tried:

  • Weight Watchers Jalapeno Pepper Gourmet Cheese Wedges – This spreadable cheese is perfect for spreading onto crackers, fruits, vegetables, bread and more as a quick, filling snack. Each rich and creamy wedge packs 2 grams of protein and 1 gram of fiber into just 30 calories, and has a PointsPlus® value of 1.
             This was Bill’s favorite mostly because he loves anything with jalapenos in it.
  • Weight Watchers Reduced Fat Whipped Strawberry Cream Cheese Spread – This decadent, fruity variety of the Original Weight Watchers Whipped Cream Cheese is the only one of its kind on the market – you won’t find reduced fat whipped strawberry cream cheese from anyone but Weight Watchers Cheese. With a fluffy, whipped consistency, each two-tablespoon serving has 60 calories, a PointsPlus value of 2, and is sure to freshen up the blandest of breakfasts.
             This is one of my favorites, because I love anything with strawberries.  Plus, it gives my plain bagels some flavor!
  • Weight Watchers Reduced Fat Whipped Onion and Chive Cream Cheese Spread – The new Weight Watchers Onion and Chive Spread is a savory whipped treat to enjoy at all times of the day, on bagels, sandwiches and more. It is also unique in its category – no one but Weight Watchers Cheese offers a reduced fat whipped onion and chive cream cheese. In a two-tablespoon serving, the spread has only 60 calories and a PointsPlusvalue of 2.
             We cheated and used this more as a snack than something to put on bagels!
  • Weight Watchers Reduced Fat American Singles – These individually-wrapped singles make it easy to enjoy the ooey-gooey goodness of melted cheese without all the fat and sodium of regular cheese singles. These singles are an excellent source of calcium with 25 percent of the recommended daily dose in every single along with 1 gram of fiber per single. Each slice has 45 calories and a PointsPlus value of 1.

This didn’t even make it to the 4th of July party.  We ate them at home.  We made cheese sandwiches, sub sandwiches, cheese and cracker sandwiches, etc with them!  I love cheese, and I love that they made this cheese,  so I can stay on my diet and actually eat it!

The number one comment we got yesterday was that everyone couldn’t believe that these cheese tasted as good as they did!  Everyone equated healthy with tasting terrible.  I am glad to see that Weight Watchers proved them wrong!  It is so nice to be able to find great tasting healthy food.  I know I am glad!

Healthy Steps Serving Set

The keys to eating right are easy; fill half of your plate with fruits, vegetables or salad and control those portions on the other half of the plate. If you serve too much food, you eat too much food. The Healthy Steps Portion Control Serving Set does all the work for you. Serve the perfect portion sizes of protein, vegetable and starch right from the stove.

The Healthy Steps Portion Control Serving Set stylish appearance is perfect for serving guests and family alike. Since portion sizes are tucked away on the heads of the tools, no one will know you are measuring! The Serving Set Contains: 1 slotted spoon for vegetables, 1 solid spoon for starches such as potatoes or rice, and 1 spatula for protein. For vegetables and starches, fill the spoon but do not heap. For proteins, use the spatula head as a guide for the proper portion size. Serve proteins in portions equal to the size of a deck of cards. These are also heat resistant to 400o F / 204o C. and also are dishwasher safe.

I love this serving set. With restaurant serving size distorting what a true “serving size” is, this takes the guesswork out of serving yourself and your family. Portion control is the best way to manage and maintain a healthy weight, and you want to make it as easy as possible. I also love that nobody would even guess this set is telling you the serving size!

The Healthy Steps Serving Set is super easy to use and love how easy it is to now tell what a serving size really is!
