Finally!We’ve talked about it enough without really saying anything, this week this is IT! We are introducing the new Weight Watchers program. Are you ready? Excited? A little worried? We’ve been dying to tell you all about it for months now.
This week we are bringing you a new complete, livable program that has been thoroughly tested for 3 years before we even heard about it! We know it works, we know it is a great program, and we’ve been living it for almost 3 months now.
Finally we can share it with you. You don’t want to miss your meeting, you want to get all the details and find answers to your questions. A Holiday gift for all of us! YAY!

In the Kitchen
This is a soup that I found on fatfreevegan.com years ago and to this day I don’t think I ever followed the original recipe. It’s an awesome base for a very filling and healthy soup that you can modify endlessly. I have added sausage or chicken to it (even beef once), I changed the spices, I changed the grains, you get the picture.
With the cold this last week, I thought it was a perfect recipe to share! It reheats very well; you might have to add some brothe though, as the grains tend to soak up the liquids.
4 Grains Tomato soup
2 meals (5p+) or 4 starters (3p+)
2 tablespoons each: barley brown rice, millet, and bulgur wheat
2 cups canned, diced tomatoes w/ juice
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon onion powder and dill
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, basil, and salt
1 carrots, chopped (1 to 2)
1 onion, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
3 cups vegetable broth
In a medium saucepan, sauté the vegetables in oil over medium heat until soft - 5 to 10 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to minimum, cover, and simmer for about an hour until grains are tender [pot barley takes the longest to cook]. You may need to add some extra water toward the end of the cooking time.
I have even made this with curry powder and added cumin. YUM!!
A week of change
This is it my friends! We are finally going to go over what's new and exciting for the 2011 version of Weight Watchers. I know not everybody is as excited by change as I am and that's ok. We will review this together, and I will be there to answer questions in the meeting room and by email.
Some of you might want to take a week to read the new plan and understand it before you switch to it and that's ok. The Momentum plan as not magically become a bad or unhealthy plan. We just have a better one now more in tune with what science has learned in the last 10 years.
Note that Etools will be changing to the new plan Monday (tomorrow) so most of you will have a preview of the new plan before you even come in the meeting room.
Take a deep breath, take time to read, note your questions and we will get this figured out together.
I am so excited!!!!!!
Have a good week!
As always I'm there for you. I will be bringing a lot of stuff in the meeting rooms, your favorites are back, new stuff is out, even a new cookbook!!
Email me if you need anything!
P.S. I have re-faced my blog, added adjacent pages etc. Constructive criticism is absolutely welcomed!
