*Johnna’s tip: Weight Watchers has some pretty good recipes for healthier eating. We did not want to trust them when we first started skimming over the recipes they would send to our inbox, but after trying a few of their recipes, we must say, we do enjoy. They seem to balance what’s good and what will actually work with you trying to achieve your weight goals. Since we have no sense of discipline when it comes to food, trying a few of these recipes could unconsciously help us to drop a few pounds…Pair with your favorite raw veggies such as carrots and/or cucumbers.
