I'm so glad there are so many Weight Watchers Patriotic recipes. The fourth of July no longer has to be a worry now that we have these recipes we can eat while on the program.
You can enjoy the party food with everyone else when you bring a Weight Watchers dish! Just be sure to bypass those other higher-calorie choices.
You'll find some pretty red white and blue recipes as well as traditional picnic dishes here. Enjoy the holiday!
The Fourth of July is the perfect time to express your patriotism. Decorate your home in stars and stripes, host BBQ parties and end the holiday with a bang.
I remember my entire family going to my parent's house every Fourth of July. They lived right next to a huge pond in Maryland where the city shot off a huge fireworks display every year. My parents had a pool, and we could see the fireworks from the pool. Of course, growing up, all our friends would show up for the holiday.
Not only could we watch the fireworks without dealing too much with the crowds, but everyone would stick around for an hour or two after to avoid the heavy traffic leaving the pond area. It was a great time to throw burgers and hot dogs on the grill again or try a different dessert. Most people brought a dish to share, so there was always a lot of food. Those are some of my favorite memories.
The fear that some people have is that since they're on the Weight Watchers diet plan, they can't enjoy the delicious party foods. Luckily, there are plenty of recipes perfect for celebrating that work well for Weight Watchers, like the Paula Deen Mac and Cheese someone recreated to work within the points plan. Thank you!
So many people love this plan and have created delicious recipes that will have you so satisfied you won't miss those other foods at all. That means you can enjoy the festivities, picnics and BBQ parties just like everyone else.
