The WW Guide to Winter

No matter what or how you celebrate, there’s something about right now that makes you want to stay inside and enjoy delicious food with your nearest and dearest. In our third annual Guide to Winter, we’ll help you cook up hearty, nutritious recipes; stick to your workouts (or get motivated to start!); and give back. Because #balance.

Season’s Eatings

PSA: You don’t need to eat sad, flavorless salads to boost your vegetable intake. “Winter produce can help you stay on track, and there are so many fun, delicious ways to get your greens—and reds and oranges,” says WW’s food director, Sherry Rujikarn.

  • Lean into the jewel tones of in-season citrus and fresh pomegranate seeds. Try Endive-Citrus Salad with Walnuts.
  • Think beyond broccoli and try Brussels sprouts, beets, kale, winter squash, collard greens, pumpkin, turnips, cabbage, and carrots. Try Kale Salad with Warm Bacon Dressing.
  • Explore clever tricks like using applesauce and puréed ripe bananas to add natural sweetness and moisture to baked goods. Try Banana Snack Bread.

Don’t Forget Dessert!

Sweet + spicy = the unofficial flavor of winter. Need baking tools? The WW Shop has what you need to make cakes, cookies, muffins, and more.

Calmness in a Cup

We don’t hop on every trend, but broth is having a moment—and for good reason. Soothing, warm, and easy to make, this simple savory liquid is surprisingly filling—throw in some non-starchy veggies to add Points® to your Budget too! Get broth in a bag, plus the veggie-prep tools you’ll need, all at the WW Shop.

Help Fight Food Waste and Insecurity

We believe healthy living is a human right, and together, we can change the course of food waste and insecurity in America. Join us as we call on Congress to amend the Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act.

By expanding and clarifying the existing liability protections for food donation, we can help provide immediate relief to the millions of Americans in our communities experiencing food insecurity.
