Weight Watcher’s Beef and Broccoli

beefandbroccoli 015

Today, I’m posting 2 recipes just for the heck of it, because this recipe was sooooooooooooooooooo delicious. I couldn’t wait until tomorrow to post it! I was going to make a crock pot version of this same dish, but decided on the Weight Watcher recipe that I found because it didn’t take forever to cook. This meal comes together in less than 20 minutes. We really liked it. It’s different from what we normally have and the sauce is just delicious. Please use either beef broth or beef consumme instead of chicken broth. This recipe calls for beef not chicken! Don’t know why the original recipe had that as an ingredient in there? Serve with some rice!

Tonight there’s supposed to be a Lunar eclipse and I’m trying to decide if I want to stay up and watch that. Supposed to happen at 2:30am this morning. I’m going to set the alarm on my phone to get up and look outside to see if anything is going on. Lot’s of sky events happening this week.

Recipe from Weight Watchers

Points Plus: 5

2 1/2 Tbsp cornstarch, divided
1/4 tsp table salt
3/4 pound(s) uncooked lean trimmed sirloin beef, thinly sliced against the grain
2 tsp canola oil
1 cup(s) reduced-sodium chicken broth, divided

5 cup(s) uncooked broccoli, florets (about a 12 oz bag)

1 Tbsp ginger root, fresh, minced
2 tsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes, or to taste
1/4 cup(s) water
1/4 cup(s) low sodium soy sauce

On a plate, combine 2 tablespoons cornstarch and salt; add beef and toss to coat.

Heat oil in a large nonstick wok or large deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef and stir-fry until lightly browned and cooked through, about 4 minutes; transfer to a bowl with a slotted spoon.

Add 1/2 cup broth to same pan; stir to loosen any bits on food on bottom of pan. Add broccoli; cover and cook, tossing occasionally and sprinkling with a tablespoon water if needed, until broccoli is almost crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Uncover pan and add ginger, garlic and red pepper flakes; stir-fry until fragrant, about 1 minute.

In a cup, stir together water, soy sauce, remaining 1/2 cup broth and remaining 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch until blended; stir into pan. Reduce heat to medium-low and bring to a simmer; simmer until slightly thickened, about 1 minute.

Return beef and accumulated juices to pan; toss to coat. Serve. Yields about 1 1/4 cups per serving.

Weight Watcher’s Chicken Salad

I’ve been on a chicken salad kick lately. I must admit, I have never really had chicken salad until now. Was searching for low sodium recipes and chicken salad was one of those recipes that had a low amount of sodium. I’ve been trying to watch my s odium levels too, and it is Soooooo freaking hard too because there’s sodium in everything. For breakfast, I’ll have a greek yogurt with some granola on top, and for a snack I’ll have 6 Triscuit crackers with some string cheese. Sometimes I’ll eat dried fruit, love cranberries!

This chicken salad has almonds, grapes, dried cranberries, and apples in it and it is just delicious! I use light mayo for my chicken salad and it’s pretty low calorie and very filling. I could eat this with out any bread!

Oreo Fluff

oreofluff 015

Watch out! Once you start eating this you won’t be able to stop! It’s really addicting especially if you love oreos.

It takes no time to make at all.

Take one box of instant jello pudding (white chocolate) and whisk in the amount of milk it calls for on the box. Fold in a whole container of cool whip and crushed oreos. I saved some oreos to decorate the top of the oreo fluff with to make it look nice.

I see that Dairy Queen has Funfetti Cake batter in an waffle cone now. Pardon me while I go there to get some.

This dessert can be made Weight Watcher friendly too. See the recipe below the original. :)

This ice cream was made with only 2 ingredients. Healthy ingredients to be exact. Frozen bananas and strawberries. No joke! Here is how you do it.

See how after a couple pulses in the food processor it looks like soft serve ice cream? This is when you can add in whatever ingredients you like. I added strawberries.
