How to Track Non-Starchy Veggies in Your WW App
One great feature of our PersonalPoints Program is the ability to add points to your daily budget. You can add Points by drinking 1.75 L of water, being active and by eating non-starchy vegetables. In this article, we are going to go over how to track your non-starchy veggies (NSV) to get those added Points.
How to track your non-starchy veggies to add Points:
Method 1: Using the Veggies “+” button
Tracking your serving of NSV can be as easy as tapping the + button right beside the "veggies" section on My Day, right under your Budget. Each time you eat 1 cup (or roughly 1 handful) of non-starchy veggies, tap the veggies "+" in your app to add your Point.
Method 2: Tracking WW recipes
If you track a WW recipe that contains non-starchy veggies (like a vegetable frittata or a salad) our database does the work for you by automatically calculating what you tracked, and adding Points.
If you get Points through tracking a recipe with non-starchy veggies, you don’t need to also tap the veggie + icon.
Method 3: Tracking veggie servings
You can also add your non-starchy veggie serving by tracking the veggies like you would any other food. Simply search for the vegetable in your search bar and add your serving size, if it is 1 cup or more the app will automatically add a Point for you!
Non-starchy veggie tracking tips:
- Make sure you are logging your veggies in the form you eat them. Making a salad with 4 cups of raw spinach? You’ll get 4 Points for logging those 4 cups. Sautéing that spinach to toss in an omelet and suddenly it’s only 1 cup cooked? We see you shrinking spinach. Log 1 cup to add 1 PersonalPoint.
- You can track partial portions of veggies. Let’s say you are having a meal with ½ a cup of tomatoes and ½ a cup of mushrooms. To add a Point you could either: A) tap the + button next to veggies (it automatically defaults to a 1 cup serving) or B) type “tomatoes” into the search bar and track ½ a cup. Then do the same with the mushrooms. The app will take those two partial servings within the same meal and add them together and give you a Point. If you are having ½ a serving at one meal and ½ at another, just use the + button
- Not sure what counts as a non-starchy vegetable? You can always check in your WW app by checking your list of 0 Point foods at the very bottom of My Day in the Explore section.
