Eating healthy isn’t the easiest thing to do, even with the best of intentions. Between juggling a job, being a wife, mothering, and let’s not forget managing homework and extra curriculars, oftentimes, I don’t have time to eat at all! However, if I want to continue to keep up with this crazy lifestyle, I will have to take the time to take care of myself. It’s important, and it starts with a healthy diet. If I am healthy then I can be fully present to be there for my husband, kids, job, and yes, the extra curriculars. Since I am always on the go, having snacks that are easy to grab on the way out the door is imperative. Even better if I can simply toss said snacks into my purse. A piece of fruit and a string cheese is usually enough to keep me full in between meals. If I choose wisely such as Weight Watchers Light Mozzarella String Cheese, made from milk, then I’m already winning. Amazing taste you have to try to believe, plus only 1 SmartPoints per serving = winning!
See? They’re individually wrapped, so they offer portion control!
This is my fave snack for when I am sitting in traffic. Living in Socal I find myself in this situation quite a bit, so having something to munch on that’s full of flavor, but that is also fun to pull apart, makes Weight Watchers Light String Cheese the perfect on-the-go (or sitting-on-the-freeway) snack option.

Skinny Mozzarella Sticks Recipe
If you have a little time to spare, use Weight Watchers Light Mozzarella String Cheese to make Skinny Mozzarella Sticks! This recipe for homemade Skinny Mozzarella Sticks isn’t just easy to make, but a deliciously healthy alternative to traditional fried cheese sticks. You’ll never guess that they’re baked! I can’t wait to whip up a few batches of these for the big game next month!
12 pieces of Weight Watchers Light Mozzarella String Cheese
1 large egg, beaten
2 tbsp oats (run 1/4 cup of oats through the food processor until a flour-like consistency)
5-6 tbsp bread crumbs
5-6 tbsp panko crumbs
2 tsp parmesan cheese
1 tbsp dried parsley
1 tbsp dried oregano
cooking spray (olive oil is ideal, but regular is fine)
Cut cheese in half (now you have 24 pieces) and place them in the freezer until frozen.
Whisk the egg in a small bowl. Set oats aside in a small bowl. In a separate bowl combine the bread crumbs, panko, parmesan, dried parsley, and oregano.
Dip the frozen sticks in the bread crumb mixture, then into the egg, then dip into the oats for a final coat.
Once all sticks are coated, place them on a layer of wax paper on a cookie sheet or tray. Place the them back into the freezer for at least 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 400° F. Line a clean cookie sheet with foil and spray lightly with cooking spray.
Set the frozen cheese sticks on the sheet. Spray the tops of the mozzarella sticks with a little more oil and bake for 5 minutes. Turn them over, and bake an additional 5 minutes. Makes 24 mozzarella sticks.
