Which WW Program are these points for?
WW has definitely changed from 2020 to now. They went from three to one plan to multiple plans and back to one plan again. So in 2023, we have just plain old “POINTS.”
- Be sure to calculate the points value of the foods and recipes you eat in the app.
- Always add ingredients and serving sizes and don’t rely on the nutrition facts in the recipe.
- Accuracy will come from the information you input on the app.
As always, remember to recalculate if you are using different brands, amounts, or making substitutions because even small changes can impact your overall points!
This recipe is 6 servings of 1 cup each. If you want to lower the points you can try using fat free cream cheese, or less potatoes.
For a good, hearty meal that I can serve with veggies or a salad I don’t feel like this recipe is too bad. But if you need to make changes you can certainly do so, most of the points come from the cream cheese and the potatoes!
How to make this easy potato soup
This is a very simple recipe. As I mentioned, you can be done and ready to eat in about 30 minutes!
First we need to combine the broth, potatoes, onion, and spices in large stock pot. We will boil this mixture on medium heat until the potatoes are tender.
Next, smash just a few of the potatoes to release their starch for thickening the soup. Leave most of them whole or chunky.
Reduce the heat to low now and allow the soup to simmer, we’ll add the cream cheese and keep stirring until the cheese is melted and the soup is creamy and delicious!
