Low Fat Dinner Recipe #3

Savory Sausage Stew

Savory Sausage Stew

This is one of the low fat dinner recipes that I consider ideal for a winter evening.

Sausages are normally very high in fat, but this recipe uses turkey sausages, which are relatively low in fat (compared to other types of sausages).

This is what I call a "moderately lite low fat dinner recipe".

Considering that under the Weight Watcher's Points System (TM) a woman is supposed to consume 22 points per day, and a man 24 points per day to lose weight, 5 points is not a biggie. Yet, it is about 20% to 25% of your allowed daily intake.

But that depends on what you eat for breakfast and for lunch.

During my peak performance under WW, I used to have 1/2 a point for breakfast, plus one point in skinny white coffee.

Now a days, however, I'm consuming about 5 points for breakfast and I still manage to lose a bit of weight by walking regularly.

Now, you may make this meal an 8 pointer. Just add a cup of steamed rice (2 pts), and 10 rice crackers (1 pt), and you have a complete meal for dinner. And you could even be good to yourself and add a low fat salad recipe for a truly healthy and fat melting meal.
