I recently created some new recipes inspired by the Mediterranean Diet, and included them while tracking my Weight Watchers points.

I incorporated lots of fresh ingredients, ditching the processed foods, and included heart-healthy fats and oils.

The best part is they are quick and easy, and share lots of the same ingredients, so I could shop once and make lots of different variations with the same foods.

Here’s one I came up with (still working on the photos):

Mediterranean Shrimp and Artichoke Salad


  • 11 medium/large frozen pre-cooked shrimp, thawed
  • artichoke hearts, canned in water (to taste)
  • baby spinach
  • 1 Tbs. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbs. lemon juice (more or less to taste)
  • fresh ground black pepper (to taste)


While thawing shrimp in cold running water according to package directions, make a bed of baby spinach on your serving dish. Add the olive oil, lemon juice, and black pepper and toss. Top with thawed shrimp and enjoy.

Entire serving: 6 Weight Watchers Plus Points
