What To Serve With Chicken Fajitas?

Chicken Fajitas can be an easy family recipe and you may wonder what to serve with this healthy dish? Well there are a number of options, the most popular being Tortillas.

As this is a Weight Watchers friendly meal you will need to count your points when adding any side sauces but chicken fajitas go very well with Sour Cream and Guacamole.

You may want to find a low fat version of Sour Cream to make to help keep your points as low as possible. If your really busy and don’t have time to make your own sour cream then you might want to purchase the Weight Watchers Sour cream available in your local supermarket or a similar low fat sour cream that is easy to point up.

If your eating these as a family meal, you may want to have 2 Fajitas with a zero point side salad. Healthy Chicken Fajitas would go well with some lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes and other salad items.

If your going more for a buffet style meal or your looking of ideas of what to serve with fajitas at a party you may want to try making Grilled or Vegetable Stuffed Peppers or maybe some Zucchini Pizza Boats. I have a fantastic recipe for those that you may just love.

Vegetables Full Of Vitamins And Nutrition

The ingredients for this Healthy Chicken Fajita recipe are very colourful. The more colour you add to your family meals the better for your health. Yellow, Red, Orange purple and green veg are full of nutrition and micronutrients.

Sometimes It can be easy to eat “anything” on the Weight Watchers plan, so long as you count the points. However the more nutrition you can find in your food the better it will be for your body and the more filling the meal with be.

Protein found in chicken is a zero point food on the UK Flex plan and the US Freestyle plan and when bulked out with healthy zero point vegetables this easy recipe will leave you feeling full and satisfied.

Tips For Following The Weight Watchers Freestyle Plan

I thought it would be great to share a few tips for following the Weight Watchers Freestyle plan.

  • Measure and weigh all your food. This is super important to ensure your counting the food correctly and not getting your portion sizes wrong.

 

  • Plan your meals when you can. Making a meal plan each week, especially for those days when you will be home and cooking can really help to make healthy choices easier especially when your tired at the end of the day and wondering what to make.

 

  • Have some ready to eat low point snacks. You may feel hungry and need something to keep you going from time to time in between meals. What I’d recommend is having a box of low point treats which you can easily access and which will keep you on the straight and narrow, preventing slip ups and reaching for those foods which are not as good.

 

  • Record Everything You Eat. It may sound simple but I find when I keep a physical record on my cell phone or in a diary it makes it so easy to keep on track and stick with the Weight Watchers plan I am following.

Whether your following Weight Watchers or simply looking for an tasty, delicious family meal then this is a great recipe to try. I really do hope you enjoy it and do let me know how it goes in the comments below.
