MyWW Healthy Fats Recipes that I Used to Lose 30 Pounds

If you haven’t already read about my amazing, yet simple, Weight Watchers hack that helped me lose 30 pounds in 2 months, you can read the entire article here.

WWs new program called myWW has, for the first time in their history, allowed customers to choose their own plan. On this new plan, customers have the choice between 3 different options. One such option is the Purple plan which increased the zero points food list to over 300 items. The list includes things like whole grain pasta, potatoes, and rice.


Healthy Fats

While allowing for this freedom of choice is commendable, I still believe they missed the mark when it comes to allowing healthy fats on to the zero point list.

One of the worst side effects of WW's plans not promoting healthy fats is the feeling of actually being penalized for eating them. For example, you could eat your weight in carrots (and probably turn slightly orange) without using a single point. But one little tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil to stir fry your carrots costs you 4.

Avoiding unhealthy trans-fats is advisable (deep fried foods, frozen foods, such as pizzas and pies, baked goods, margarine). However, consuming the proper amount of the right kinds of fat can fuel your body and your brain. Many studies have shown that people who eat more fat don’t gain more weight (in the form of fat on their bodies). Nor do they have higher rates of other health problems like cancer or heart disease.

Incorporating healthy fats into your diet can help you feel full for longer stretches of time, protect your immune system, and contribute to the health of hormone functioning.

What do I mean by healthy fats? I’m talking about:

  • Avocados
  • Coconut oil
  • Real butter
  • Organic Grass fed beef
  • Eggs Fatty
  • Fish (like salmon)

Technically, only eggs and fish are on the list of 300 “free” foods. However, I added at least one of these sources of healthy fats to my meals and really boosted my weight loss.

  • Roll the parchment paper around the lettuce as tightly as possible and tuck in the ends
  • Using a serrated knife, cut the sandwich in the middle

3. Shrimp and Avocado Salad

This is more of a salsa than a salad, but I made it into a salad by serving it on a bed of mixed greens. This recipe makes three servings, so you can share with someone you love!

  • 1/4 of a small red onion, diced

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Once oil is hot, add the shrimp (in a single layer) and cook on one side for 2-3 minutes. Flip shrimp and repeat for another 2-3 minutes
  • Transfer shrimp to a cutting board and chop into pieces when cool enough to handle. Place shrimp pieces in a large bowl
  • Squeeze the juice from one lime over the shrimp and stir
  • Add the tomato, cucumber, and avocado to the shrimp and mix
  • Add the onion and cilantro and stir
  • Serve over a bed of lettuce or mixed greens

4. Avocado Tuna Boats

These taste so good, even my kids love them. I think they are kinda fun to eat because they come in little avocado “boats”. These are a great snack or even make an easy “to go” breakfast. Each half of the avocado is considered one serving, so this recipe serves two. One serving has 6 net grams of carbs, 2 grams of sugar, 15 grams of fat and two grams of saturated fat.

5. Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers

The Philadelphia cheesesteak sandwich gets a makeover in this recipe! Doesn’t the name alone make your mouth water? I like to make these the night before and simply reheat them for dinner the next day.

myWW Freestyle Hack Recipes: Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers

  • 1 Small onion, diced
  • 1 Cup of diced button mushrooms
  • 1 Tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce (or steak sauce)
  • 1/2 Cup of crushed tomatoes

  • Cut off the tops of the bell peppers. Remove the stem and chop up the bits of pepper on the top for the filling. Remove the seeds and ribs from the inside.
  • Put the peppers in a microwave safe dish with a bit of water on the bottom
  • Microwave the peppers for about 4 minutes or until they are soft. Drain the water.
  • In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of butter and cook the ground beef until it just begins to turn brown. Pour beef into a bowl
  • Using the same skillet, put the remaining tablespoon of butter along with the mushrooms and onions. Cook for a minute, then stir and add the diced bell pepper tops. Cook another minute and stir again.
  • Place the beef back in the skillet and add the Worcestershire sauce and crushed tomato, along with any salt and pepper you want to add
  • Stir a few times, then add in the shredded cheese
  • Cook for another minute or two or until the cheese has started to melt
  • Fill each bell pepper with the cheese and beef mixture
  • Garnish with parsley if desired and serve

6. Butter Garlic Shrimp “Casserole”

I love seafood, can you tell? This recipe is great because you can make it into different meals by adding just a few things. Put this on a bed of lettuce or mixed greens and you have a buttery shrimp salad. Or you could mix it into some pico de gallo and eat it right out of the bowl.

I even poured it over some leftover cauliflower rice and it was SO GOOD! Keep in mind that if you use bread as a side, it will change the macro’s. This recipe serves 6 so share the love.

  • 4 Large cloves of garlic, crushed

  • Sprinkle the shrimp with salt and pepper
  • Bake for 6-7 minutes, then turn the shrimp over and bake an additional 7-10 minutes or until shrimp is done
  • Garnish with parsley, if desired, and serve as you like. I like to squeeze the lemon wedges over the shrimp just before serving.

7. OMG Steak Sauce

While this isn’t a recipe for food per se, it IS a fabulous healthy fat recipe that you can use with almost anything. I love to dip pieces of steak in it, but I’ve also used it for vegetables and even poured a bit over salad greens on occasion. Oh My Gosh steak sauce is a recipe your friends are going to beg you for.

  • 3 Large cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2-3 Tablespoons of prepared horseradish (use less if you don’t want this too hot)

  • 3 Teaspoons of fresh thyme, minced (2 tablespoons of dried if you don’t have fresh)
  • 1 Pinch of Cayenne pepper (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Allow the sauce to sit for 10 or 15 minutes, then whisk again

8. Garlicky Steak Bites

The only thing I love more than seafood is steak. I love this recipe because it’s not only tasty, but super versatile. I put leftover steak bits in my salad or mix them into some zoodles, I also like using the OMG steak sauce I have listed above. I use sirloin most of the time, but you can also use rib eye or tenderloin.

Be sure that your pan is really hot so that you get a nice crispy layer outside. You don’t want the butter to burn, however, so spray your pan liberally with some cooking spray or coat the bottom with some olive oil.

This recipe serves 4.

myWW Freestyle Hack Recipes: Garlicky Steak Bites


  • 1.25 Pounds of sirloin steak cut into bite sized cubes
  • 1 Tablespoon of olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons of real butter
  • 1 Tablespoon of minced parsley (dried parsley is OK too)
  • 2 Teaspoons of minced garlic
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • In a large skillet (cast iron is great if you have it) heat the olive oil over a high flame
  • Season the steak cubes with salt and pepper
  • Put the steak in the pan in a single layer. Depending on the size of your skillet, you might have to make two batches
  • Cook for 3 or 4 minutes, stirring occasionally until nice and brown
  • Repeat if you have more meat to cook
  • Add the butter and garlic to your pan
  • Cook for another 1 or 2 minutes, making sure all the meat is coated
  • Sprinkle with minced parsley and serve

9. One Pan Steak and Garlic Zoodles

I’m crazy about zoodles, aren’t you? If you haven’t tried them, you really must! Buy a spiralizer and use zucchini to make “noodles”. If you don’t have a spiralizer or you aren’t a fan of zucchini, you can use spaghetti squash.

You can save yourself some time by making the marinade the night before and letting the steak soak in it overnight. This takes less than 30 minutes to make and it’s one of my go to favorites.

Also, if you’ve never used zoodles before, the zucchini renders a lot of water when you cook it, so after using your spiralizer, sprinkle it with salt and allow it to sit on some paper towels to help absorb as much water as possible. Rinse it in a colander to remove the salt and let it drain. I usually blot it again with paper towels a second time.

Serves 4.
