The Weightwatchers website have really nice recipes for everyone to use. You need to pay the subscription to get the full range of recipes - but what they have as freebies is really good.

If anything, and only if you're struggling, it might be an idea to use the meal plans to get an idea of healthy portion sizes and what kinds of foods to put together into a meal.

But it's really just most important that you meet your ranges, and if you can do that with the foods you eat yourself, then that's perfectly fine!

Timely topic. I've just got to week 2 of stage 2, and it's trying to tell me I need to use it's meal plans for a week. Yeah right. I had a look to see what it would tell me to eat, and it was all so unappetising. Either it wanted me to eat tuna with bread (shudder, that is one combination that I just can't stand the idea of) or spend 3 hours making lunch.
Is it really wrong if I just smile sweetly and keep on using my own recipes? I know how to cook already, sometimes I just need the gentle reminder of not eating all the yummy foods on one day that tracking gives me.

Believe it or not it goes both ways... I have many recipes from home that I can't get ingredients for here in the US, I have found some substitutions over the years for some things..... and maybe its a good thing there is no substitute for golden syrup here!

We all know how hard it is to use a site that's designed for an American audience, with American ingredients in most of the recipes available!

So here's a place to post links to great kiwi recipes that you like! They don't have to be sparkpeople's, but they DO need to use the metric system and foods available in NZ supermarkets.

It would be great to post recipes that you've tried and can let us know how they went!

To start us off, here's one from Healthy Food Guide that I *want* to try but haven't yet... Roasted Eggplant and Kumara Stew:
