It would be a great thing if Food52 could pair up with Weight Watchers. Great food AND points!.. anyone else agree?

A lot of us probably follow it and would be glad to figure out a way to include point information to our contributed recipes!

That would be awesome! I'm always lightening up the recipes I come across. Plus WW does have some great recipes on it already...

OK I will confess - have been a weight watcher for YEARS - clearly the testing and developing days are often not points counting days (duck fat anyone?) I think some recipes you really don't want to know nor should you think about points, but there is also a lot of places where we COULD figure them out and add them. I will if you will!

I would hate to see that happen! This is the last place I want to see go from foodie loving food to weight watchers and the concept of "easy"! How about 20 min meals or calorie counting cookie baking! No!

Nutritionism?? What do you think keeps us alive and healthy? I love food52; I make my own judgements about nutrition and taste. Comments show that most of us are adapting recipes to our own preferences and standards -- I appreciate the inspiration I find here. Anyone who has been on Weight Watchers knows how to use a recipe -- if only to change portion sizes. Not necessary for food52 to provide points. I think they're overcommitted already!

I agree! Not to knock the decadent recipes, but I'm always on the lookout for good recipes that aren't calorie-laden, or decent substitutes that don't compromise taste.

I would like to see more information on storage -- how long can recipes be made ahead before they're not what they should be?
