Hello,
Can anyone recommend a weight watchers recipe book with ideas in for all meals and simple quick recipes?
Thanks

I don't bother with specific WW recipe books. Alot of people on WW seem to like the Hairy Bikers recipe book - you just need to use the recipe calculator on the app/website to get the points values. I love recipe books and have a very large selection of them but I tend to only use them to give me ideas and then I just make my own stuff up!

I have found that just by making some simply switches to my favourite recipes I can make them more points friendly so for things like shepherds pie I use half very low fat mince and half quorn mince and for the topping I substitute half of the potato for butternut squash and use less butter and milk. Most recipes can be made lower in points but obviously things with pastry/cream etc will be high points so maybe just adjust the amount of it you have to make it fit in your points allowance and have it with lots of no point veggies to bulk up the meal.

I love the No Count cookbook. The recipes are all pointed as well so you can use them on both counting and no count days. The SmartPoint one is also good. There are loads of recipes on the website too and Pinterest has a lot of WW recipes,
