Loaded Baked Sweet Potato- W.W. 8 pts.

Image

Happy sunday everyone! Today’s recipe is from Skinnytaste.com.  Yes, I know I keep using this website but this recipe was done by a guest blogger from ThePickyEater.com. It was so good, a little light but perfectly portioned. The recipe only takes about 25 minutes, but mine took around an hour.  The author used a microwave to bake the potatoes where as I baked them in the oven so the potato would have some caramelization taking place. SO GOOD!  

Leftovers side note:

Of course I save all left overs to take to work for lunch or as dinner during the week.  The only thing I suggest is to keep the potatoes and the mixed veggies separate until you prep your lunch or dinner.  

I hope you enjoy this recipe! Happy Eating!

Crock Pot Santa Fe Chicken- W.W. 4 pts

Lately I have been stalking pintrest’s “healthy food” posts and researching where they came from.  The only downside to  this is you will be preoccupied for hours.  Every picture I saw was so seductive I had to click on it.  But, I finally stumbled upon this gem from SkinnyTaste.com.  Crockpot recipes are the best.  Especially if you work or go to school and you just can’t be standing in your kitchen for 6 hours watching the oven.  If I had that luxury then I would be an AMAZING chef.  This recipe was very simple and too the point, and even weight watchers approved! Check it out below.
