Weight Watchers Winter Warmer Stew

Yum. How good does this Lamb, Barley and Rosemary Stew look! What’s even better is this dish is Weight Watcher’s approved 🙂

The recipe serves four, so with a family of five I would double this recipe (below) and freeze some portions for quick, easy and healthy lunches. I often double the recipe on soups, slow cookers and stews so my husband and I have cheap, easy and healthy meals to take to work.

So for a yummy winter stew to warm you up,  here is the Weight Watchers Lamb, Barley and Rosemary Stew…
