In the mean time, here are my top 10 favorite smart point foods and recipes:
Premier Protein Drink – 2 SmartPoints™
I couldn’t believe that my favorite breakfast drink is only two SmartPoints™ when I scanned it in my Weight Watchers app. You should’ve seen my happy dance! Not only does it make a quick breakfast, but it also replaced my coffee creamer. Yup…my old favorite uses up two SmartPoints™ per tablespoon and I just couldn’t justify using four SmartPoints™ for coffee in the morning. So I switched to chocolate and vanilla Premier Protein Drink.
Even if I use ½ the carton my drink is still only one smart point! Give it a try – it’s worth the switch. Plus you get 30g of protein in each carton. You can get it at your grocery store or online. I buy mine from SamsClub and Walmart. Oh…and if you have Walmart grocery, you can get $10 free by using my referral link.
Starkist Tuna Deli Style – 2 SmartPoints™
I love this Tuna pouch so much that I wrote Startkist to tell them never to discontinue it! I don’t do this often, but when I find something that’s amazing, I can’t help myself. My family loves this and I love that I can eat it right out of the pouch without any prep! It’s fast and easy.
The best price that I’ve found on this is .97 each from Walmart. I’ll typically order online and pick up because sometimes it’s out of stock in the store. This tuna on opchips or 45 calorie Sara Lee bread (1 smart point per slice) makes a filling meal or snack.
Sara Lee Delightful 45 Calorie Bread – 1 SmartPoints™
I found this one smart point bread at Sams Club. It comes in a two-pack for under $5. The jalapeno cheese wedge from Laughing Cow makes this a yummy low smart point breakfast or afternoon snack. I’ve also made tuna melts with it by adding Starkist Deli Tuna and 1 Tbsp of cheese. Another favorite of mine includes 1Tbsp of peanut butter topped with bananas. So good!
Egg Whites – 0 – 1 SmartPoints™
Egg Whites are 0 smart points for 1 or 1 smart points for 3. I cook them for breakfast, lunch and sometimes dinner! When I add 1 oz of ham and 1 Tbsp of cheese, I get a low smart point meal for only 2 smart points!
DelMonte No Sugar Added Fruit – 0 SmartPoints™
I found these at my local Dollar Tree, but I’m sure you can find them at the grocery store. My Dollar Tree had no sugar pears and mangos and both flavors are pretty good especially for zero smart points!
