One serving is more than half my points for the day!!

Is two servings really accurate for this? That gives you a half a pound of meat per serving which is why the points are sooooo high. Like kfrancis, this is half of my points for the day :(

This looks fantastic. I believe the servings are miscalculated. To the people complaining about the points for a serving, are you really going to eat a 1/2 of meat and a lb and a half of squash? i mean, come on. Get a half of a portion and cut your points in half again, and i still bet you wont be able to eat it all
I think this sounds yummy and I agree that 1/2 of the serving would be MORE than enough. I do have one question/comment: I'm assuming the "1/4 cup of chicken stock" it to be pureed with the tomatoes to make the sauce? It is not mentioned in the steps...

I gave this a two because you can't have turkey in Fat Smash Phase 1 BUT mayb with the veggie crumbles it will b just as tasting.. i will try it!
1 Pound of Ground Turkey/Beef is normally for 4 Servings. I use for 2 People only 1/2 Pound.
