I will be the first one to admit, I love the Pioneer Woman’s recipes. I have every cookbook and probably tried almost every recipe. Her recipes are super-duper delicious, kid friendly and did I say delicious? But, since they are down-home, cowboy type food – the recipes are full of calories. Which is fine, but not for someone that doesn’t get a lot of activity or does farm work daily. So…… I took my favorite Pioneer Woman recipes and remade them the Weight Watchers Freestyle way. These are super low point delicious recipes.
