Earlier in this week, I blogged about my short-lived fall off the weight loss wagon and outlined steps I’ve taken to get back on board.  One of those steps included searching for satisfying, delicious new recipes that will reinvigorate your commitment to healthy eating.

You don’t need to go any farther than this blog to find all sort of inspiring recipes that will fit the bill.

How about Healthy, Zero Point Egg Salad? Or 3-Point Ricotta and Orange Crepes? 6-Point Chicken Parmesan? Or, one of my favorites, 4-Point Gruyere, Canadian Bacon, and Corn Frittata? Every one of these recipes is a winner – delicious, healthy, and oh-so easy to prepare.

But there was a catch.

How do I make something delicious that everyone will love without blowing all of my Weight Watchers Freestyle points for the day? It also needed to be easy, quick, and not too many crazy ingredients that I couldn’t find at my local supermarket. Also, when you are cooking for various palates, like your grandkids, it’s safest to stick with the basics.

But basic is boring! So I decided to take a risk.
