Weight Watchers Grilling Recipes are crucial to my success almost year round! Now that summer grilling weather is returning, I wanted to share some of my favorites! I am sure it won’t be a surprise my go-to year-round is grilled chicken breasts; I mean, a zero-point food grilled, can you get any better than that??

The flexibility of WW aka Weight Watchers allows you to enjoy a steak, and really anything. I like to pair my steaks up with zero smart point vegetables to help me stay on plan. Another perk to grilling is not heating up the house during the summer months as well!! Plus Weight Watchers Dinners are made of foods that you and your family already love, I mean total wine right?
WHAT IS Weight Watchers?
When starting a new weight loss program or diet change, consult a doctor or physician about personal health concerns. It is a good idea to have blood sugar levels, blood pressure, and hormones checked at a physical before and during being on the WW program.
New to Weight Watchers?? Also known as WW, a weight loss program uses points assigned to food to track and lose weight. When you sign up, you take an assessment that will assign you a point value to eat daily and a weekly allowance. You can carry over 4 points from the day into your weekly budget, which is handy when you need more points.
I have been on Weight Watchers since 2011. They have had Points Plus Value, WW Smartpoints, Blue Plan, Green Plan, Purple Plan, WW Personal Points, and now Weight Watchers Points. The new Weight Watchers Simplified plan is the new program launched in November 2022, similar to previous plans like WW Smartpoints, with some color plans. ( You can see the Weight Watchers Zero Point Foods 2023 -> here)
No matter the WW plan, they work to help you learn healthy eating habits. I have hit lifetime goal weight several times but stopped operating the plan and tracking, so the weight does creep back on.

Low Point Weight Watchers Food To Grill
Now almost any food can be cooked on the bbq or the grill. Also, you can smoke 95% of the food as well! Part of Weight Watchers that I love is the food I eat is the food I want with either a small tweak or just in moderation! And let’s face it, cooking in the warm summer weather is amazing!
- Using oil on foods will increase the point values. Instead of drizzling oil, use a brush to make less and more even on your food for seasonings or nonstick. You can also use sprays that are zero points for the same effect; a little goes a long way.
- Basing the meal around a low protein allows points to be used on side dishes with a higher point value, aka potato salad, pasta salad, and dessert! (you know the best stuff)
- Most seasonings won’t have points but do scan in case it has sugar that will add points if you use a lot of seasoning in some cases.
- Look for low-sugar marinades and sauces to lower the point value of the dish.
Low-Point Weight Watchers Protein To Grill
Fish Fillets– Most fish is zero points; if you add oil to the fillet, it will add points, but you really don’t need a lot of fat. This is great to use in other dishes or just as leftovers since it’s also a good source of protein. Salmon Fillets, Cod fillets, Halibut fillets, and Tilapia fillets are my family’s favorites!
Shrimp– Shrimp is easy to put on a skewer and cook on the top rack of the bbq. I like to serve mine with a steak and zero-point veggies for surf and turf dinner.
Chicken Breasts– Using boneless skinless chicken breasts on the grill is perfect for a filling dinner! I will meal prep by grilling extra chicken breast to use in chicken salad, on salads, or just to snack on during the week.
Pork Chops– You know, the other white meat. Boneless pork chops work out to 3 ounces, being 3 points, which for meat is not a bad point value
Turkey Burgers– Make turkey burgers using ground turkey or use your app in the store to find low-point patties, these are a great variation on ground beef burgers but for lower points!
Vegetables To Grill
- Grilled Corn On The Cob
- Grilled Portabello Mushrooms
- Asparagus– Also bacon wrapped asparagus is fantastic on the grill
- Sweet Potatoes
- Baked Potatoes
- Vegetable Skewers– Use zucchini, mushrooms, onions, and bell peppers to make the side dish, or alternate with a protein source.
Fruits to Grill
- Grilled Peaches
Weight Watchers Grilling Recipes
