When Weight Watchers revealed their Freestyle program in the US, I have to admit that I was a little nervous about it.  I wasn’t sure how it would work, if it would work and the idea of updating all my recipes made me want to squirm.  But I think the new program will work well, as long as you don’t over-indulge in the new zero point foods.  

Trying to come up with new recipes to make (no matter what kind of cook you are) can be a challenge.  Meal prepping and meal planning take time and energy, and sometimes it’s not worth it or doesn’t work that week.

These ten easy Weight Watchers Freestyle recipes below have all been updated to include the new Freestyle points (Blue plan), and are all easy to make.

Ten Easy Weight Watchers Freestyle Recipes:

Instant Pot Salsa Chicken

This recipe is one of the most popular recipes on Dash of Herbs and it’s only 3 Freestyle points per serving (it used to be 8 Freestyle points per serving).  It’s one of the easiest recipes you will ever make for yourself and your family.  Even the kids will love it.

If you don’t have an Instant Pot, don’t worry!  You could make this in the slow cooker instead (add the beans and corn near the end of the cooking).

Skinny French Toast Muffins

  1. Thank you! I’m so glad that you are enjoying the recipes and are excited to continue with Freestyle. I lost and maintained about a 40lb weight loss (not currently since I am pregnant), but it was so easy to maintain it after I lost all the weight. I love WW for how easy it is to incorporate into your daily life.

  2. I can’t wait to try the spaghetti sauce. Thank you for providing the new WW Freestyle points. I’ve been doing WW for 6 months and I’ve lost 35 pounds…only 10 more until I reach my goal but I’ve drifted away from counting points for the holidays.

  3. Thank you Kathy, I really appreciate that. The recipes will be coming more in the new year, and I’m always available for encouragement. 🙂

  4. I really appreciate these recipes! I plan on starting WW (again) in the new year and will be making your yummy looking recipes for sure! Keep them coming, along with the encouragement! Thank you!
