Dieting is tough stuff.  You want to eat good tasty foods but those calories and WW points get in the way.  Stick to the plan and make it work has been my mantra.  A few keys have been:

  • Every calorie counts so make it good for you and delicious.
  • Actually journal what you eat all day. This has been an eye opener and a valuable tool.
  • Portion control.

With this in mind, I share with you a favorite recipe. It’s healthy, low calories and 0 points for Weight Watchers.

Peruvian green sauce
Serving size: 2 tablespoons

  • 2 cup(s) Iceberg lettuce
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice, (1 whole lemon)
  • 2 tbsp drained Pickled Jalapeno Slices
  • 1 tbsp juice from pickled jalapeno jar
  • 2 tsp table salt
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 cup(s) water
  • 1 cup(s) Spanish onion
  • 1 cup(s) cilantro, (1 whole medium bunch with stems) washed / cleaned
  • 1/2 cup(s) avocado

Put all ingredients in blender and puree till very smooth. Adjust for salt, cumin, lemon. Adding more lettuce will smooth out the flavor. Put in container with air tight lid. Will hold in fridge for up to 1 week.

Great for salad dressing, topping for cooked meats, chicken, veggies. Also use as base for green rice dish.
