WW Points Plus Sandwich Ideas

Last week I posted a starter grocery list for the weight watchers points plus program along with a guide to some weight watcher points plus recipes. Today I thought I'd so something similar by going over some sandwich ideas that would be good for the weight watchers new plan. You may or may not realize that there are a lot of ways to pull together a low calorie sandwich.

tomato spinach rolls
Yummy Tomato Spinach Rolls
These are as interesting as they are tasty. If your co-workers see you eating a tomato spinach roll, they might think you are eating take-out since these colorful rolls look so of fancy. They are actually fairly easy to make and with fat-free cream cheese, and only 88 calories, they are only 3 WW points each. That has to be one of the most low-calorie sandwiches around!

grilled cheese sandwich

Low Calorie Grilled Cheese Sandwich
I posted about how I make a low-fat grilled sandwich a while ago.  You can make it even more interesting by choosing from an unbelievable 8 flavors of super delicious fat free cheese. Weigh out a 1 oz. portion of cheese and sprinkle over the bread. If using a microwave, the cheese will only need about 20 seconds to melt. Once the cheese is melted, add some fresh sliced tomato, grilled peppers or onions to make it even more delicious. A cheese andwich comes out to about 155 calories and 3-5 WW point, depending on exactly how you make it.

boca chicken
Chicken Sandwich or Chicken Burger
When you really don't want to think too much, it is nice to be able to pull out a burger, or for more zest, a spicy chicken burger spicy chicken burger. These Boca chicken patties are vegetarian but you could also used leftover grilled chicken. I like using flax seed bread  or an english muffin. Top with fat-free cheese and melt. At the end of cooking your burger or give it a few seconds in the microwave for pre-cooked chicken. Using the flax seed bread and the boca chicken burger, the sandwich comes out to 260 calories and 7 WW points. With the same bread and 3 oz. grilled chicken breast, it is 240 calories, or 6 WW points.
