I recently checked out a couple of Weight Watchers’ Smart Ones frozen foods. I am following the Weight Watchers Program.
I tested out the French Toast with Turkey Sausage first. I’ve always liked the Smart Ones Smart Beginnings Breakfasts. I usually buy the ones that are egg based. The French Toast with Turkey Sausage is has a Points Plus value of 7, 280 calories, 8 grams of fat, 2 grams of fiber and 14 grams of protein. Verdict: I liked it, the french toast (while on the thin side) was tasty and the turkey sausage had a nice, smoky flavor. However, in my opinion, 7 points for a Weight Watchers Breakfast is a lot, so this is something I would only probably have once a week, not as an everyday breakfast. Considering that French Toast and Sausage from Friendly’s Restaurants is 28 points, Smart Ones’ French Toast and Sausage is a MUCH better choice.
I also sampled Smart Ones Ziti with Meatballs and Cheese. This is meant to be a dinner, with a Points Plus value of 10.
Verdict: While I liked it, even with the “bigger portion size”, it didn’t really fill me up. The taste was good, but it wasn’t the best ziti with meatballs and cheese I ever had. However, you could pair it with a garden salad to bulk it up a bit. Considering the homemade or restaurant version of Ziti with Meatballs and Cheese is going to be many, many more points (even in a small portion) the Smart Ones version is the one I’m going to reach for.
