Are you loving the Weight Watchers Freestyle program? They expanded their list of 0 point foods to include beans and that has gone a long way to helping me feel satisfied and lose weight. I like to try and incorporate beans into a number of recipes since they are filling and good for me. I made a yummy 0 Point Chili in the past, and today I am sharing this Weight Watchers 3 Bean Salad.
