WIW: Skinny Taste

Sharing is caring!

Do you know Skinny Taste?

 A huge THANKS to whoever recommended this site to me and second of all, HOW did I not know about this 128k+ readership site??  I feel sheepish.

I have only spent a short time on there so far, but I think many hours will be spent on this site.  The author, Gina, shares her recipes which she has ‘skinni-fied’ to be healthier.  The greatest part is that for each recipe, she shares the WW points (old and points plus) and the other nutrition facts.  Makes it SO easy for me to count my points.

So the WW site actually has a ton of recipes too with all the points calculated, but it’s been hard to navigate and I haven’t found many recipes I liked yet.  I went onto Skinny Taste and found a ton of recipes I liked right away.  I wrote them down along with a shopping list and this is what I’m making this week:

Tuesday:  Healthy Baked Chicken Nuggets

Wednesday:  Broccoli Mac & Cheese

Thursday:  Santa Fe Crock Pot Chicken

Friday:  Chicken Pot Pie Soup

Saturday:  Taco Dip

Sunday:  Chicken and Mushrooms in Garlic White Wine Sauce

These are the chicken nuggets I made tonight.  Here’s my review:  They were fairly easy to make, but I couldn’t get them to be very crispy.  I’m no wizard in the kitchen so I’m wondering if I broiled them they would be crispy.  They tasted good though.

The goal here is to make and review each item on my weekly list.  If I can do this, then I will stay away from restaurant food which is always like 4,000 points.  And expensive.  My hub and I like to cook together when we can, and we’ve been doing it more lately.

So here’s my weight-loss challenge for YOU:  Go visit SkinnyTaste.com and find seven recipes to make for each day of the week.  Then cook them and write down what you thought (whether in a blog, FB, or a notebook, just to remember.)

  2. Thanks for sharing this site! I think I am going to join you in your challenge, but I will probably wait until next week since I just went grocery shopping and have my meals planned for this week.

      Yay! Totally join me on the challenge for next week! 🙂

  3. I noticed I had been pinning a lot of her recipes so I decided to start browsing the site. Her food is awesome! You are going to LOVE the santa fe crock pot chicken! Super easy and full of flavor! With a family of 4 (a 3yr old and a 3 month old) this meal makes enough for dinner and left overs the next night! Can’t wait to hear your reviews about other recipes!

      Yay I am actually making that one tonight. Ironically I wasn’t pinning recipes straight from her site–that was just a coincidence!

  4. What a find! Thanks for sharing. I can’t wait to browse the recipes!

  5. Thank you for sharing this site! We are in a process of trying to eat healthier and any ideas help at this point!
