This post was created as part of a relationship in which I was sponsored by Weight Watchers and given a free three month subscription to try their new Personal Coaching product and write about my experience. Though I was compensated for my time and commitment, all views, positive and negative, are my own. #WeightWatchers #WWsponsored
I am LOVING getting healthy, eating better, and losing weight with Weight Watchers…especially with the help, guidance and support of my Personal Coach.
When I first signed up for Weight Watchers, I was asked to list a few of the foods that I “couldn’t live without.” The very first thing that came to my mind was CHEESE. I love cheese. I realized as I analyzed my eating habits that I was snacking throughout the day on cheese, and while I realize that there could be worse things to snack on, I also realized that the amount of fat I was consuming regularly from just that one snack habit was not conducive to losing weight.
I also mentioned to my coach that I felt like lunch and midday eating were where I had the hardest problem. I was already in the habit of eating a decent breakfast and I cook a homemade meal for my family almost every night. But at lunch time…that’s when I crave fast food or I snack on whatever happens to be in the house. My coach and I decided that lunch would be a focus area for me and an easy area to improve right away.
On one of my recent chats with my Weight Watchers Coach, she mentioned one of her favorite lunches, and now that I’ve tried it, I’ve become officially (and happily) hooked. I love these lettuce wraps so much that I’ve told my daughter at college about them (they’re healthy AND portable!) and convinced my husband to try them out, too.
Easy lettuce wraps in less than 5 minutes!
- 1 large leaf of Romaine lettuce (0 points+)
- 2 slices of lean deli meat (2 ounces/slices = 2 points+)
- 1 triangle of Laughing Cow light cheese (1 points+)
- Fresh spinach, optional (0 points+)
- Rinse and dry Romaine lettuce. Carefully remove the thickest part of the lettuce/stem from the bottom of the leaf. If necessary, split the center vein partially in half to help it roll more easily.
- Spread Laughing Cow cheese over the lettuce. Lay deli meat out on lettuce. Top with a handful of fresh spinach, if desired.
- Roll lettuce up and enjoy!
