Weight Watchers 5 Ingredient, 15 Minute Cookbook by Nancy Fitzpatrick Wyatt
I don’t even remember where I got this book or how long I’ve had it. I saw it yesterday and thought I’d go through it since I’m trying to eat healthier and eat less carbs and sodium. And if you’re like me, you like quick and easy, few ingredient healthy recipes. This book is loaded with them.
I love cookbooks that include photos. While I would have liked more, the book did have some bright colorful ones scattered here and there. I always like seeing how my food looks compared to the photo. Of course most of the time mine isn’t as pretty.
The book includes a No Stress Shopping List, Handy Substitutions, Microwave Cooking Chart For Vegetables, and Metric Equivalents. I very rarely use my microwave, but the chart would come in handy if I wanted to microwave some veggies and the substitutions and metric equivalents are ones I need all the time.
Each recipe has nutritional information, WW points and exchanges. My book is the fifth printing (2005) and is in like new condition.
I don’t know why I haven’t been using the heck out this book. It’s great for anyone who wants to eat healthier, not just for someone wanting to loose weight. I’ll be posting a few recipes from it soon.
Here’s one of the first ones I want to try:
Grilled Caribbean Chicken
4- 4 oz. skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon vegetable oil (I’ll probably use canola)
2 teaspoons jerk seasoning
Place chicken between 2 sheets of heavy duty plastic wrap and flatten to 1/4 in. thickness
Combine the lime juice and oil, brush over both sides of the chicken and rub both sides with jerk seasoning
Place chicken on grill rack coated with cooking spry, cover and grill 5-6 min. on each side until done
Exchanges: 4 very lean meat
Fat: 4.2 (saturated 1.0g)
