Default ~ Point Help Needed ~

Good morning all! I am wondering something. I know that butter adds points but I am not sure how to do this.

For dinner last night I made frozen green beans... I beleive it was a 2 pound bag... it was a family size bag. I put 2 tablespoons of butter in the bowl of all of the beans.

How would I count that as points? It was the blue bonnet tub of butter. So I know there is points to it.. I am sure. But I am thinking it is such a tiny bit (once a day) that maybe it don't add up to anything. But I am not sure. What do you think?

is it the full fat or the low fat version of Blue Bonnet?

If it is full fat that would be 8 points for 2 tablespoons divided by how many servings you got.

If it is the low fat version it is usually 4 points for 2 tablespoons again divided by how many servings you got.

Tracey,
Have you tried "spray butter"? For 2 Tbs it is only 3 points and adds that butter flavor. Maybe you could try tsp instead of tbs. If you add the liquid butter after they are cooked....it coats them and flavors them. Just a thought.

actually it does......a while back KellyS put out the tally on THAT one lol. I too was using it w/o calculating points BUT it is MUCH friendlier points wise than the other stuff. A TB is 1.5 a tsp is .5 I think. If you do a search it should come up. Good luck!
and HEY CONGRATS ON THE SMOKING!!!!!! You ROCK!

Thanks for the congrats! It has been a wild ride lol. But well worth it!


I didn't know about the spray butter. I am going to have to do some searching and reading. I will have to look thru the WW site too! There is probably lots of info. on that in there too. Thanks again for the heads up!
