Even with a broth base of some sort. With the exception of the garbonso beans I would have to count them.... they are very inoffensive though.
no broth base. Just tomato juice and other listed seasonings. Our sommelier had to ask too.
All beans bother you or just garbanzo?
Wouldn't take alot to change the recipe up and move origin regions completely.
It really needed some squash and ifi make it again I'll try adding it.
All the ingredients are fabulous.... including the Garbonzon beans. or any beans. Starchy veggies like beans and potatoes have to be measured for Weight watchers..... So you know how much you are eating..
The way it works in a very simple manner is according to your current weight age and height you are given X amount of points you should eat for the day. its like money in the bank. But it represents the calorie count that puts you in a deficit in order to loose weight. I think they keep you at 500 calories under maintenence. My deficite calory count is around 2300 calories per day. right now
1/2 cup Garbonzo beans = 3 points
in my case I get 50 points per day for food. Believe me its hard to get it all in. The point value has gone down since I started. I stared at 58 and when I stick to it I loose weight at the rate of about 2-3 pounds per week.
I need to monitor fats and starches simple sugars and protiens. Protiens are good. I approach the fats and starches as if they were seaonings
But there is NOTHING that is not allowed. All you have to do is count it. and trade off wether its worth it...
To give you an example an In and out meal.....
Cheese burger= 14 pts
Fries = 11 points
Milk shake = 14 points
grand total 39 points
leaves me 11 points for my other meals. I could do it but dang.
Veggies and fruit are unlimited thank goodness because i love em.... they are filling and good for you.
