3 ZeroPoint foods to fill you up on myWW+ Blue
ZeroPoint™ foods are super-flexible and can be used in lots of delicious (and unexpected) ways. Here are a few ideas to whet your appetite.
ZeroPoint Hero: Tomatoes
Pro tip: Ripen tomatoes at room temperature. Refrigeration slows down ripening and decreases flavour.
Cherry tomatoes stuffed with feta make for tasty bites.

Try them grilled.
Grilling tomatoes releases their naturally sweet juices, which will flavour the rest of your meal.
Try it out: Herby scrambled tofu with griddled tomatoes
Go beyond beefsteak.
Tomatoes come in many shapes and colours. Scout out heirloom varieties at your local farmers' market.
Try it out: Roasted tomato tricolore salad
Most tomato varieties are red, although other colours are possible - including green, yellow, orange, pink, black, brown, white, and purple.
ZeroPoint Hero: Eggs
Whip 'em good.
Meringue desserts, like fruit-filled pavlovas are delicious low-SmartPoints sweet treats.
Try it out: Chocolate and cherry pavlovas
Put them on a pizza.
Add a flavour and protein boost to homemade pizza; top it with a scrambled egg.

Add them to entrées.
Eggs are a great addition to vegetarian bowls, Asian stir-fry meals, and soups. Pro tip: Boiled, unpeeled eggs will last up to a week in the fridge.
Try it out: Boiled eggs with lentil tabbouleh
Putting eggs in an ice bath immediately after boiling will make them much easier to peel. It also helps if you start peeling at the wider end.

ZeroPoint Hero: 0% fat natural Greek yogurt
Pro tip: The clear liquid in yogurt containers is naturally occurring whey. Don't drain it; stir it back in.
Dough it up.
Combine self-rising flour and yogurt to make a versatile two ingredient dough.

Chill it out.
Add yogurt to ice cream recipes for a smooth creamy texture.

Move over, mayo.
Swap yogurt for mayonnaise in salads and sides like coleslaw.

Sweeten the deal.
Pro tip: While Greek yogurt is higher in protein than regular yogurt, it's a little more sour. Stir in some citrus zest to sweeten the flavour.
