It’s that time of good intentions again! Are you doing it? Maybe you want to exercise more or lose a few pounds? I want to exercise a little more, because I’m going on vacation in a month. And the idea of putting on a bikini again after all the thick winter sweaters makes me a bit anxious.
Dieting is not for me but I do try to eat healthy and get enough vitamins, especially now in the winter months. I hear around me that many people are working on Weight Watchers, and with success! My mom and my aunt have already lost quite a few pounds with Weight Watchers. Although it is a diet, you are left very free with what you do and don’t want to eat, as long as you stick to the number of ProPoints.
ProPoints are values based on the amount of proteins, fats, carbohydrates and dietary fiber in food and drinks. Fruit and vegetables, for example, are 0 ProPoints and a pancake with bacon and cheese is 25 points. What I like about Weight Watchers is that they look at your age, height and weight and draw up a personal ProPoints plan. So the number of ProPoints you can have per day varies per person. And you can choose how you want to distribute and use the points. And if you have a dinner party, birthday or just fancy a piece of chocolate, you can use your weekly extra ProPoints, that’s nice isn’t it!
Especially for everyone who is (or wants to start) with Weight Watchers I have made a recipe that only contains 5 ProPoints, is on the table within 15 minutes and is also super tasty! An additional advantage is that you will not soon hear the men complaining about this recipe.
Steak with mushroom sauce
4 PORTIONS – 5 PROPOINTS PER PORTIONS
640 g steak 1 shallot 1 tablespoon margarine (vegetable) 500 g mushrooms, sliced 1 tablespoon flour 1 stock cube (low fat) Pinch of salt and pepper
Heat the margarine in a frying pan and brown the steak on both sides. Season the meat with a little salt and pepper. Remove the steak from the pan and keep it warm in a piece of aluminum foil. Please note, the steak will continue to cook slightly in this.
Chop the shallot and fry in the cooking fat. Add the mushrooms and fry them. Dissolve the stock cube in 250 ml of water and pour 200 ml of this into the pan with the mushrooms.
Stir the other 50 ml through the flour to a paste and add to the pan and bind the sauce with it. Serve the steak with the mushroom sauce.
Tips: – If you want to eat extra vegetables or a salad with it, this can be done for 0 ProPoints (note: the dressing or extra additions to a salad can contain ProPoints).
– Use these cooking times for steak: 3 minutes for rare, 5 minutes for medium and 8 minutes for well-done.
– 2 medium boiled potatoes are 2 ProPoints and a serving of pasta of 75 grams is 7 ProPoints.
– Add a little dried thyme to the sauce for a spicy taste.
