Weight Watcher 1 point snack idea
In December, I joined Weight Watchers. I'm down 16.4 pounds, and I'm not finished yet. The new Points Plus program is WONDERFUL and it makes it so much easier to follow and to lose, as long as you write down what you eat and keep track of your points. I even lost weight during CHRISTMAS break and never once felt left out or deprived! I found this recipe yesterday on the Weight Watchers website and tried it out. Then I hid them so I would have something to snack on. My kids loved them. (which is why I hid them!!) Sometimes, it's okay to be selfish. :) 2 crisps are1 Points Plus
Parmesan Cheese Crisps
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place scant tablepoons of grated Parmesan cheese on the paper and gently flatten. (I used a small soup spoon) Sprinkle with chives, parsley and pepper. I also sprinkled a little bit of onion powder on them. Bake in a 425 degree oven for about 6 minutes, until the edges are brown. I think it would be fun to substitute other herbs for different flavors, or just leave the cheese plain. They are great, crisp snacks or you can eat them with soup.
I am a working mother of two teens, spoiled dachshund and an effervescent Golden Retriever. AND I have a husband who is addicted to fishing. I love to cook, scrapbook, read, watch movies and hang out with my family and my friends. This blog is a place for me to store the extra stuff in my head!
