Go, you! You’re taking the right steps toward making positive changes in your life. Whether you want to fit into that dream wedding dress or you want to be able to chase after your child or grandchild, it all begins with eating well. If you’re using the program to lose weight and get healthy, then this is the place to find low-point snacks for Weight Watchers.
The grocery store aisles are full of processed snacks marketed as “healthy” or “low fat.” The problem is that not all of those foods are the best choices for building a new and improved body. Manufacturers often add extra salt or refined sugar to processed snacks to make them taste better.
The other snag with processed “healthy” snack foods is that it’s harder to keep tabs on portion sizes. You open a bag telling yourself you’ll have just a couple of whole grain crackers. Before you know it, you’re an entire sleeve later you’re left with nothing but crumbs and guilt.
These ideas for low-point snacks for Weight Watchers will pack your body with the nutrition it needs and the taste you want. Put these delicious clean-eating options on your menu plan this week. (Note: We’ve included SmartPoints, but most of the recipe links include additional nutrition info.)
