With so many family members proudly in the program, including my mom, I’ve been a real friend to her by always taste testing her snacks! I mean, it’s the least I could do, right? Since I’ve always been naturally slim, people assume I’m not interested in making long health goals, but they’re wrong. I’m not a kid anymore! I like to feel balanced and toned. Having a small frame only takes me so far! The rest is up to me. I have written about Weight Watchers snacks a few times in the past, and there’s a reason for that! I love the system with the point values and the variety of products. It helps keep me balanced.
I’m a snacker by nature, and it also fits into my lifestyle. While I like the idea of eating three meals a day, I think that has to be enhanced. I work long hours in my office and then I’m on the go for long hours. I’m also active and even if I WANT to take a few days off from that, my poor dog wouldn’t like that. So off we go! Weight Watchers has the new Freestyle™ program with zero Points® foods. Their products make choosing what you eat easier because you have smart options and flexibility to enjoy more delicious recipes and foods to help you reach your goals. I have so many favorite products too, like ICE CREAM!
Weight Watchers has a variety of wonderful products, but I’d love to tell you about a few of my favorites and why. First, I love Arnold® Sandwich Thins rolls endorsed by Weight Watchers®. They have multiple flavor varieties like Whole Wheat, Honey Wheat, and Flax & Fiber. I love 100% Whole Wheat, and they’re great for breakfast or lunch. They are 3 SmartPoints® value per roll and great for recipes. Remember how much fun I had with English Muffins earlier this month? I love to do the same here. I spread mascarpone on them, add sliced strawberries and bananas, then I drizzle honey and basil on top!
And, I also love JOLLY TIME® Healthy Pop® Popcorn endorsed by Weight Watchers®. They are non-GMO and gluten free. This is the only popcorn endorsed by Weight Watchers with 3 SmartPoints® value per serving. You all know I adore popcorn.
For a real treat, let’s talk Weight Watchers® Ice Cream Novelties. They’re individually wrapped items, rather than pints or quarts, so you get portion control. They have lower SmartPoints® value per serving than regular ice cream and other “frozen novelties”. They’re made from low-fat milk and the snack sizes are all under 100 calories. There are bars and cones, and they are 2-4 SmartPoints® value per serving. Plus, it’s ICE CREAM! I love Dark Chocolate Raspberry and Salted Caramel.
1 – Grab whole grain snacks. They can give you energy that lasts. That’s why I love my Sandwich Thins with fruit and cheese!
2 – Make snacks you can grab on the go. That way you’re not reaching for cookies or cakes or vending machine snacks.
3 – Eat mindfully. When you’re snacking, enjoy your snack and focus on it! Don’t eat while scrolling Facebook or watching TV.
4 – Eat nuts! They make a great snack and can combine with all the best Weight Watchers snacks.
5 – Try combo snacks. For balance, I pair snacks with healthy fats, proteins and fats.
