If you’re headed to the pub for St. Patrick’s day, date night, or to meet a few friends for the game, you can enjoy your favorite beverage as long as you allocate points for it.
Although I’m not much of a beer fanatic, I do enjoy a diet root beer every now and again. It’s my zero point beer alternative. For everyone else. Here’s the Weight Watchers smart points in beer to help you stay in your budget.

Smart Points in beer vary depending on brand and size of your drink. If you don’t have the smart points in beer list above handy a good rule of thumb is:

  • If it’s a light beer – allocate 3 or 4 smart points
  • If it’s  a regular, larger or premium beer – allocate 5 smart points
  • If its a draft beer and you’re getting the 14 oz size – allocate 6 smart points.

I was excited to discover that the Sweethearts candy box is only 6 smart points. The smaller ones are even less, although I’d have to count how many come in these little bags to say for certain.  I think that’s what I’ll be spending my smartpoints allowance on this year. What candy from the Weight Watchers Smartpoints List for Valentine’s Day Candy will make it to your house this year? Will you be brave enough to refrain all together?

Taco Salad Recipe for Weight Watchers Only 3 Smart Points

I’ve been working hard on this taco salad recipe. I love taco salad and a fast-food taco salad without the shell can set a gal back by up to 22 Smart Points! That’s almost my entire daily Smart Points allowance. Instead of saying no to taco salads, I decided to try my hand at creating a recipe that’s only 3 Smart Points. It’s easy to make and takes 5 minutes to cook so you can have dinner or lunch ready by the time you’re stomach starts growling.

Taco Salad Recipe

3 Weight Watchers Smart PointsTaco Salad Recipe 3 Weight Watchers Smart Points

Serves: 6 people (1/2 cup serving of taco meat mixture each)

Ingredients:

  • 16oz Jennie-O Ground Turkey, Lean, ground and brown – 15 Smart Points
  • 1⁄2 cup(s)cooked onion(s) – 0 Smart Points
  • 1⁄2 packet McCormick Seasoning Mix, Gluten-Free, Taco – 2 Points
  • 1 head(s)chopped romaine lettuce, chopped – 0 Points
  • 2 medium fresh tomatoes, chopped – 0 Points
  • 2 Tbsp fat-free salsa, optional – 0 Points
  • 1 oz fresh mozzarella cheese – 3 Points

Instructions

  1. Chop the onion
  2. Brown the ground turkey and onion
  3. Add the taco seasoning mix
  4. Mix and simmer for 1 minute
  5. While simmering, chop the lettuce and tomatoes

Serve a ½ cup of the taco meat mixture on top of a bed of lettuce and tomatoes. Add fat-free salsa and sprinkle a few pieces mozzarella cheese on top for garnish.

You can omit the cheese if you want to. The reason why I sprinkle the cheese top of the salad is because I feel like taco salad needs to have cheese. If I don’t include it, then I feel like I’m missing out. By using the cheese as a garnish, I satisfy my “need” for cheese. Because I’m not using a lot of cheese, the Smart Point value is low.

This taco salad recipe is only 3 smart points. It’s a great healthy substitute for that taco salad you just have to have.
