Weight Watchers 5 Point Taco Salad

I’ve been on Weight Watchers just over a year and I’ve lost a total of 55 lbs. I’m really pleased with my progress and now that I’m less than 10 lbs to goal, it hardly seems real.

Haven’t posted in a while but wanted to get this out there as an example of a low-point lunch that is very filling. It is a good example of how to use foods to fill in a meal with things that are zero points but very filling. This is a very fast lunch for me because I usually have most of the elements already made in the fridge. I usually cook everything on Sunday or Monday and then make my week’s lunches each day from the ingredients I cooked up previously. The ingredients make a nice wrap which is what I usually have each day. The salad is a nice change of pace and saves me two points on the tortilla to use later in the day. Like on wine maybe. 🙂

Lunch as pictured is five points which break down like this:

  • 3 cups mixed greens – zero points
  • 2 ounces Stupid-Easy Bean Dip – 2 points
  • 2 ounces lean ground beef, browned with sauteed onion and spices – 2 points
  • 2 tbsp of Lowfat Spicy Ranch Dressing – 1 point
  • 10 grams shredded lowfat cheddar cheese – zero points
  • Sauteed red bell pepper and onion – zero points
  • 1 chopped tomato – zero points
  • 1/3 cup salsa – zero points

Enjoy y’all!
