Weight Watchers Meeting - Week 13

Helloooooo Weight Watchers!

Congrats on your Winter Session Running Academy Start Up classes! What a great way to kick off the New Year!!

Weigh In will begin at 7:15 and the meeting will begin promptly at 7:30.

This week's topic: Success Secret #2 You Can't Eat it if You Don't Have It!

Recipes of the Week: Whole-Wheat Chili-Mac

6 PointsPlus Value

Prep time: 18 min

Cook time: 30 min 

Serves: 6

This one-pot hearty meal can easily be altered to meet your family's tastes. Try subbing ground turkey breast for the beef and whole-wheat spirals for the elbows.

Ingredients 12 oz uncooked 93% lean ground beef   

1 medium uncooked onion(s), chopped   

14 1/2 oz canned stewed tomatoes, Mexican-style, undrained   

1 1/4 cup(s) canned tomato sauce   

2 Tbsp canned green chili peppers, diced, drained  

2 tsp chili powder  1 tsp ground cumin   

1 cup(s) uncooked whole wheat elbow macaroni   

15 oz canned kidney beans, rinsed and drained  


In a large skillet, cook beef and onion until meat is browned, about 10 minutes; drain off fat. Stir in undrained stewed tomatoes, tomato sauce, chili peppers, chili powder and cumin; bring to a boil.

Stir in uncooked macaroni and kidney beans. Return to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer until macaroni is tender, about 15 minutes. Yields about 1 1/4 cups per serving.


Serve with grated parmesan topping, fat-free sour cream and low-fat or fat-free shredded Mexican cheese, if desired (could affect PointsPlus values).

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
