KMU – Veggie style – WW 3pts

hmm, lots of squash, soooo much squash….

Ok, I sliced it with the slicer, then sliced an apple, then layered them in a pan,

squash, mix of oats, flour, cinnamon, walnuts, brown sugar, Apple, squash, mix of oats, flour, cinnamon, walnuts, brown sugar, Apple, squash, mix of oats, flour, cinnamon, walnuts, brown sugar, Apple mix of oats, flour, cinnamon, walnuts, brown sugar.       Then I baked it for 30 min at 350.  only 3pts for it.

It is ok as is, but it is AWESOME with cool whip or ice cream!


WW KMU Low Carb Veggie style

Yea, I know, I am on WW, but I also eat low carb and mostly vegetarian, but I don’t like onions and peppers, aaauuuggghhh!

So, hmmm, I have a squash from a neighbor, no idea what kind, I have canned tomatoes and some mushrooms???  And, oh , hey, Veggie Meatballs……..(light bulb!)

I pull out the can of tomatoes, I blend about 3/4 of can with some garlic, I put it in a pan and add the unblended tomatoes.  I add the veggie meatballs (3 pts for 3), while simmering I add some mushrooms.

Then I pulled out the veggie spiralizer, I cut off the neck of the squash (narrow part) and made a LOT of noodles!

I put those in a pan with some garlic and cook those up, then after a few minutes I added the veggie marinara sauce.  BOHYAH!  Huge plate of food, very low carbs and only 3pts!

You gotta think out of the box, can, bag, and yummy things happen!

KMU – Corn Bread muffins with a twist..

So as you know, I make tweaks to recipes so I can eat as vegetarian and low WW points as possible, while using items I have in the kitchen at that moment….so without further ado….

Corn Muffins with Corn and Black Beans & Corn Muffins with Pineapple….Yeah es good!

  • 1 Cup flour = my current flour mix includes whole wheat as the base, 50-60%, then almond flour, soy flour, Flax Seed flour…..yummy and less carby
  • 3/4 Cup corn meal
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • couple shakes of sugar or splenda, maybe 1/8 of a teaspoon at most
  • salt = couple grinds (to much salt is not good for you)
  •  1 blended apple (peel and all) – instead of butter
  • 2 egg –
  • 3/4 cup of juice from can of corn + 1/4 unsweetened almond milk –
  • 1 can of corn

Halve the mixture and add 1/2 can black beans to one half and 1/2 can crushed pineapple to other half.

Pour in to muffin tin ( I use silicon cup liners) and bake at 350 for 25 min

2 WW pts per muffin!  I am telling you the corn and pineapple is YUMMY!



WW Frittata recipe adjustment …

You can find recipes all over that you can adapt for WW or any reason…like…oh….you don’t have what it calls for???

  • 1 large handful baby spinach leaves, shredded – *Yeah, didn’t have these, so I used basil from my garden
  • 12 cherry tomatoes, halved – I grow tomatoes, they be very small, so I didn’t cut them up
  • *I added 2 Morning Star Sausage Patties cooked then broken up (WW 1 pt for 1 patty)
  • 10 large eggs
  • Salt and pepper, to taste – *I used Italian Seasoning instead
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped – didn’t use cause I didn’t have it

Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Lightly spray a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray ( I use silicone muffin cups for all my baking, so much better!).

Evenly distribute the spinach or Basil 🙂 between the 12 muffin cups and top with two cherry tomato halves (to much work, just dropped them in whole).

Whisk together the eggs, salt, pepper and parsley (or in my case seasonings) in a large bowl, until blended. Transfer this mixture to a pouring jug. Carefully pour the egg mixture evenly between the 12 cups and bake for 15-20 minutes until firm and lightly golden.

*I will either do 12 eggs, since eggs are ZERO points, or only fill 6/9 cups, as they are slightly small.

** I would say, even with the Patties at most this is WW 1 pt  per 2 frittatas.

Once cooled, you can store the frittatas in the fridge.

Fruit and Veggie exchange…

I have started a fruit and veggie exchange in our neighborhood.  I was walking the dog and also when we drive, I see all sorts of fruit trees, so I went on Nextdoor (kind of like a facebook for neighborhoods) and did a shout out.

Now I am trading, mint (with is a monster, tries to take over my whole garden), basil, tomatoes, for squash, lemons, garlic and apples.

We are adding more people for more variety.  You should try it in your neighborhood.

Great way to meet new people too!

Jackfruit….my new fave…

so I went and bought a bigger slice of the fruit, takes a while to get all the goodness out.  But then I found a can of crushed pineapple in the cupboard, so I made Jackfruit and Pineapple muffins and jelly butter.

I call it jelly butter because the pineapple and jackfruit are kind of chuncky and chewy so i blended about 75% of it and then mixed it up, it is sooo good on waffles!

Since nothing but fruit, water, banana (to thicken), and vanilla it is a 0 point food on weight watchers, and it freezes well.

Jack fruit OMG good!

So I know of jack fruit for it being used as a meat substitute.  I found out that it is the green unripe ones they use for that.

But ripe jack fruit is the BOMB! It is however very big and intimidating, so lucky for me, my local grocery store was selling slices of it.  So I picked up a slice to check out at home.

I of course went to Youtube for how to peel it, because, lets face it, everything is on youtube.

It was very easy to get the fruit pieces out, and even the “seed” is edible, however, I am still working on that one.

So, check out your local market, if they have slices of Jack Fruit take one home, you won’t be disappointed!

So I had some strawberries in the freezer

I pulled them out to cook with later this week, but when I went in fridge I noticed “juice” at the bottom of the bag….then light bulb…..I poured the juice in my tea and it was tasty!

So I mushed them up and sieved out the seeds and know I have ZERO point sweetener for my tea!   Plus all the goodness of the strawberries with no additives!  SWEET!

Aauugghh……so the little shit strikes again

the consensus is either a Rat or a Raccoon is the culprit (prior post of 1/2 eaten peaches in a “nest?”.

So the little shit got in my covered area and started eating my ripe tomatoes!

Some bitch!  why doesn’t it eat the mint instead, it keeps trying to take over my whole garden!

OMG…WTF…..half eaten peaches….

so I was in my garden area, and I have a table that I have two grow boxes on, I look underneath and there is a “nest” it is filled with 1/2 eaten peaches.

Now there is a peach tree in the NEIGHBORS yard, but the peaches do NOT fall in my yard.

Something is getting the peaches, bringing them into our yard and eating them.  But why only 1/2 get eaten?  Also, I think the little shit is the one eating my tomatoes!!!
