Morocan Slow Cooker Butternut Squash and Carrot Stew | WW 4 pts

Look, I'm only going to tell you this once. MAKE THIS DISH! It does not taste low fat, it does not taste like weight watchers, its amazing. I loved it so much that I have plans to make it again (sans chickpeas) for Thanksgiving as a side dish.

It. Is. That. Good.

Don't omit the red pepper or the cumin or the cinnamon. It makes the dish. Mmmm.

Oh, yeah, and get out there and Rock the Vote! Happy Election Day Everyone.

Ok, Julie, DONE. It's in my slow cooker right now--I'm excited to see how this turns out!

Just out of curiosity, about how many calories would you guess it is? I know it's 4 points, but I don't do WW so I don't know what that would roughly translate to. It's clearly super healthy so I'm not too concerned but just wondering.
