I ordered my TM at about the same time as I joined WW so I too am very keen to see this get off the ground instead of having to run all the TM recipes through the WW recipe builder to figure out the SmartPoints, then figure out how to get them down to manageable points levels 🙄. However for those of you who are still on WW - if you search the food index for Thermomix - I've saved any of the recipes I've run through the recipe builder and prefaced them all with the word Thermomix - I don't know how it works exactly, if anyone who is logged in can see them, or it's just me, but you could give it a try.


I love you! Thank you!
WW points on Thermomix recipes. Helpful.


Hi, I too am a newbie to WW, I tend to convert the WW recipes to the Thermomix, for example, use the WW ingredients but instead of cooking in a frypan or saucepan use the tMx. For example, I made lasagne tonight but instead of frying the garlic and onion in a frypan, did them in thermie,, then added all the other ingredients and then cooked for the same time as the chunky spaghetti Bol on the Skinnymixers website. Turned out beautifully.

I would like a recipe chip for the Qirky Cooking recipe book.

 


I have actually been following the 5.2 diet..and with the fact that the my bimby (thermomix) wieghs everything is a fantastic thing... cutting out the sugar in the recipies, which I have done by half..especially the spanish recipies which a very sweet, seems to work.... I am amazed at the results!

 

I have a good rice pudding recipie which I shall add on soon..amongst others!

Hi all, I have a blog which is dedicated to healthy, low-fat recipes, all of which are Weight Watchers friendly and would probably interest everyone who has posted here. I have calculated and state the ProPoints for each recipe. Subscribe at www.mythermomixkitchen.com, or follow My Thermomix Kitchen on facebook for regular updates Smile


I am also looking for some ways to use my Thermomix with thhe weight watchers diet.  I have seen some posts where people mention recipes but I haven't really been able to find anything useful.  I would appreciate any practical ideas!


I would love a weightwatchers cookbook for the thermomix. I am struggling converting as it takes a lot of time to get on the computer and work out everything with 3 boys aged 8 weeks, 2 and 3.

Would love a cookbook based on the principles in the books "Sweet Poison" and "Diet Delusion" so that others can finally shift their weight for good without feeling bad about lack of will power or paying huge $$$ to the likes of WW to turn up for the torturous weigh ins. Hope this helps even just one person get off the dieting wheel because I hated being on it and i'm so much happier now and healthier than ever. We have been scammed for years by these diet companies.

 

Im following this also, today is day 1 Smile


Sarah Wilson has a good website... she follows the David Gillespie way and owns a TMX too Smile

A WW cookbook is a definite must have!  Just wondering if there is any more progress on this since it was back in October 2011 when Thermomix head office replied??  


Hi Tanya, would love to see the conversions you've made to make recipes ww/tx friendly.  Would you be ale to send me some of them?

thanking you in advance:)


So agree with everyone here.  Has any progress been made on a ww tx cookbook? Smile


I have just bought my Thermomix and woulld love to have the propoints values you have worked out....trying to get my head around it and still try to make point friendly meals...Thanks


I agree have just got my Thermomix and with 7 kgs to go and really struggling a cookbook woud be fantastic.....


Love the idea of a WW Thermomix cookbook - really hope it eventuates  Smile


I have just receive a Thermomix for my birthday! In love with it already.  Have lost 10kg on the Weight Watchers Pro Points but still have a few to go.  Would love a WW Thermomix Cookbook - great idea.  I'm all for it - would  make things so much easier!


I love the idea of having a meal planner and shopping list in the book too.


Super idea! I would definitely buy one!


Super idea! I would definitely buy one!


I agree that would be great! Smile


I love this topic Smile I have just got my TM and have been doing WW for a little while now.. A tm/ww cookbook would make it sooo much easier Party


Are you able to share what the healthy eating plan is or who it's with that your hubby lost weight on?


Yes, Nosugar, I am also following the principles in 'Sweet Poison' & have never been happier. I lost weight with WW three times, put it back on three times, but have now kept it off using no sugar. Easy to convert Thermomix recipes - just use dextrose/glucose in place of sugar!

 


This is really interesting! I would love to see this happen also!!


Has anyone sorted how to figure out how many 'points' are in our home made cooking anyway?  It would be a great way to check what sort of food I'm putting on the table each day.. as to whether it would be adding to waistlines or not... !


I love that all the weight watchers cook books have weights so you don't need to spend time converting cups to grams.


I got my Thermomix last week. I am working my way through the EDC and find that yes there is a lot of butter, sugar etc but you can reduce the amounts you use.  However a dedicated book for weight watching would be excellent.  It would make life so much easier.


I also think that it would be amazing to have a weight watchers book incorporated with the thermomix  :D Cooking 7

I am doing weight watchers, and also find it hard to convert the recipes for use with the TM. I will look forward to a low fat cook book coming out to get the most of the TM.  That also gives you serves and maybe even points if that is possible. Smile

Hi Thermomix in Australia,  has there been any progress on this from head office.  So many people are asking, it would be great to have an update.

Thanks


Weight Watchers is HUGE, and unfortunate our thermomix's are a bit small as far as brands go.I think it would be great to see people enjoying these bad boys more, but it would be great to see some "approved" recipes at any rate Smile 


I was so happy to find this thread. I to love the weight watchers recipes and do not have the confidence to convert them so find I am not using my thermomix as much as I should. 

I to would love any converted recipes for ww.

Great idea....

Why not link up with Weight Watchers and get them in on the work end....the Thermo Mix goes so well with the entire Weight Watchers ethos....healthy eating and all...

 

 

 


Cooking 7   hi I am alsos a new thermomixer and I  am on weight watchers , any recipes  converted to points would be appreciated .. happy mixing

 


Me too! I have been doing Weight watchers for about 2 years and have just bought my thermomix. BUT I am finding it very hard to cook WW friendly foods in the thermomix because I am not used to being able to adjust recipes myself!

 


Hi Tan, Smile

can you send me copies of the receipes that you have converted please? I love to use my TM but have been struggling with doing the points convesion thing!

Any thing you have converted would be great.

Cheers

Tracy
