How to Create a Meal and Build a Recipe in the WeightWatchers® App

It's so, so, so easy.
Published December 16, 2019

The Recipe Builder in the WW app lets you store your favorite meals for 3-tap tracking. Instead of adding up the PersonalPoints™ values for each ingredient (exhausting!) save it in the Recipe Builder. Here’s how simple it is.

Build a recipe in the WW app in 3 easy steps

1. Tap the Search bar

You’ll see the bar at the top of the My Day screen in your WW app. There will be a row of options to scroll through—choose “My Food.”

2. Tap "Create"

Choose “Recipes,” then click “Create” in the top right corner. Take note of this screen—your saved recipes will live under the “Recipes” tab.

3. Add ingredients

Fill in the details of your recipe: Add a name, ingredients, and any steps you want to refer back to in the cooking process. Tap “Create” in the upper right corner, track the recipe, and you’re all set! It will be saved in the “Recipes” tab for the future.
