Good Morning Everyone!
This recipe comes to us from a very successful Lifetime member who attends my 10a meeting in Schaumburg on Tuesdays. She’s been at her goal weight for several years and rarely misses a meeting. She will tell you and we know it to be true…the key to keeping the weight that you work so hard to lose off is to KEEP COMING TO MEETINGS! Besides, with all of US there, they are FUN, so who wouldn’t want to attend???
I left the recipe just as Ceil sent it to me, but you could certainly lighten it up even more, if you’re looking for a 1 or 2 PointPlus value alternative to mashed potatoes. As it is at 4 PointPlus values, it’s still a great value…Parmesan and real cream cheese…YUM! Either way, ENJOY!
Thanks for the recipe, Ceil and for all you share in our meetings to help others. I will see everyone in Schaumburg today for BOTH the 10a and noon meetings.
My Weight Watchers schedule is below incase you’re thinking about returning to Weight Watchers or know someone who you think would find weight loss success by attending the meetings I lead. Please spread the word:-)
