My Meal Plan Week of 4/4 (The Weight Watchers Edition)

This post may contain an affiliate link. Click for the full disclosure.

I’ve been “on Weight Watchers” for a few weeks now and have made a bit of progress, but now it’s time to really get my rear into gear (literally).  This week’s meal plan is the family friendly Weight Watcher’s edition, because I simply refuse to cook myself a separate meal just because I’m trying to lose some weight.  It’s a lifestyle and it’s got to fit within my family’s likes and dislikes.

Anyone in the same boat?  I’d love to get some recipe ideas from you.  Please feel free to share them with each other in the comments section.  I could use some inspiration and motivation myself!

Monday – Hearty Turkey Chili (re-do because we missed a day eating at home last week)

Tuesday –  Breakfast for Dinner: Asparagus, Bacon and Cheese Strata

Wednesday – Marinated  Grilled Chicken (Lawry’s Garlic & Herb) with Mashed “Potatoes” With Chives, and Salad

Thursday – Cheesy Zucchini Enchiladas and/or Tostadas

Friday – Grilled Chicken with Spinach and Melted Mozzarella and Roasted Vegetables

Saturday – Eating out!

Sunday – Spicy Lentil and Sausage Soup

  2. Thank you! I have been on ww for five weeks, lost 15lbs but my food budget has gone sky high. They dont have veggie coupons in the paper! Lol. I buy what is on sale, but I go though tons of fruits and veggies each week. My favorite easy meal is a turkey wrap: flatout brand wrap bread, deli turkey and whatever veggies you like plus a sweet & spicy mustard (Raleys brand is yummy). Its 4-6 points depending on the bread flavor. I have found my food scale is my best friend. I have changed my meals some, but weighing my cereal in the morning and my meat portions during the day has really helped me stay in control!

  4. Yes, love her! A couple of the recipes above are from Skinny Taste.

  5. Yes, a friend gave me her old scale and it’s so helpful! Do you have a 99 Cents Only Store nearby? That’s where I get the majority of my fruits/veggies. Also I wrote this post about getting a deal on produce, I hope it helps! http://thefrugalfind.com/getting-a-deal-on-produce/

  7. I don’t know any great recipes, but I’m in love with your chalk board. That would make sticking to a meal plan so much easier for us

  8. I had said it before on a previous post, but Taco soup is by far one of my favorites.

    1 # of extra lean turkey or beef.
    1/2 cup of onion diced
    1 can of mexican style pinto beans (sometimes called chili flavored)
    1 can of beans your choice
    1 can of corn
    1 can of stewed mexican tomatoes
    1 can of diced tomatoes any flavor
    1 pkg of ranch dressing mix (only hidden valley it makes a difference for us)
    1 pkg of taco seasoning mix

    Brown meat and onion, drain well. Put back into pot, mix the seasoning packets into meat, then dump everything else in and mix. Cook on low for an hour or in a crock pot for 4 hrs till hot and cooked through. So easy, so yummy. I forget the points. But I think it was 2 pts per cup. But the pts might be different on the new program. You can top it with baked tortilla chips, low fat or fat free cheese and/or sour cream, lettuce, tomatoes, green onions, etc. Just be sure to figure out and count the pts for your toppings. They are not included in the 2 pts per cup.

  9. Also the baked bean tostadas in my book are yummy. We would take corn tortillas, spray with nonstick spray, put in the oven on a cookie sheet and cook till crisp.

    Then top with mexican flavored pinto beans, lettuce, avocado, tomatoes, salsa and a tiny bit of low fat or fat free cheese. So good too. We’re mexican food lovers.

    We also would do the chicken, zuchinni enchiladas.
    Take salsa and pour a little in the bottom of the pan.
    Take ff plain yogurt, chicken and ff cheese and cut up zuchinni, then wrap in the tortillas. Top with the rest of the salsa, and a little cheese. Right before done in the oven pul out and top with a little more of the ff plain yogurt on top. Tastes like sour cream. And top with green onions. Add salt and pepper in the dish as you like. I’m sure you can look these up on the website they are from their past books for serving sizes and pts. :)

    The pork chops with pears and sweet potatoes is really good too And super easy. Look that one up too.
