Weight Loss : Success Tips for Weight Watchers Freestyle

Success Tips for Weight Watchers Freestyle So, you started Weight Watchers Freestyle and you want to set yourself up for success as best as you can. Here are some tried-and-true tips others have followed that you can use: Plan your meals Armed with the 0-point food list, you want to plan out each meal, each snack, and each dessert. Planning ahead is absolutely key when it comes to sticking to your goals. It makes grocery shopping way easier, and ensures you never find yourself hungry and without an idea of what to eat. Some people really like planning, but if you aren’t one of them, set aside a time at the beginning of each week when you aren’t busy and stick to the routine. It will become a habit.  Include a lot of 0-point foods into each meal There are over 200 foods on the Freestyle 0-point food list, which is really good news. To take advantage, you want to plan meals that use as many of these foods as possible. This keeps the point count of each meal really low. For example, a lunch …

Weight Loss : Breakfast

When you start your journey to better health, odds are your breakfast routine needs a change.

Recipes : Butternut Squash + Turkey Sausage Breakfast Casserole

Butternut Squash + Turkey Sausage Breakfast Casserole
Serves: 4  Time: 45-50 minutes (20 minutes prep time, 25-30 minutes cook time) 
I like using turkey sausage in place of beef or pork because it isn’t as fatty, but can taste just as delicious with some seasoning. The turkey is joined by cubed butternut squash and spinach, so this egg casserole is bursting with satisfying flavors and nutrition. After cooking the sausage and squash, you add to a baking dish and pour over the eggs. Bake for 25-30 minutes. The whole thing takes less than an hour! Ingredients: 1 pound lean ground turkey sausage  2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil  2 cups diced butternut squash  ½ teaspoon garlic powder  ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning  ½ teaspoon salt  ½ teaspoon black pepper  4 cups fresh spinach  4 whole eggs  4 egg whites Instructions: 1.
