Weekly Weight Watchers Meal Plan #26

Another week, another meal plan. Do these posts roll around as quickly for you as they do me?

Every Saturday I share my Weight Watchers Meal Plans here on Simple Nourished Living. It includes what I’m planning to have for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well a few snack and dessert ideas.

To keep things simple I tend to rotate between the same one or two breakfasts and lunches the days I eat at home. And because we are a family of two most recipes I make result in leftovers that we are happy to eat again.  So, I usually only cook from scratch three or four times a week. We like to eat out a couple of times, usually during the weekend.

If I end up with more food than we can eat, I portion it out, package it up and pop it in the freezer for future quick and easy lunches and dinners.

Taking the time to think about what I’m cooking and eating ahead of time makes meal times all week so much easier. With the shopping done and recipes at the ready I can just walk into the kitchen and get cooking. I don’t stick to it one hundred percent, but it helps to have a rough guide. And prevents me from reaching into the cookie jar or open bag of chips too often.

I hope these posts make it easier for you to stay on track with your weight loss and/or healthy eating goals too.

And remember, there’s a Weight Watchers Meal Plans Section on the blog so you can get inspiration from all of the previous weekly meal plans too. Enjoy!

Weight Watchers Meal Plan (Week #26)

Breakfast

This week I’m going to begin the day with a large mug of decaf coffee (0PP) and either:

1. English muffin (3PP) with one tablespoon peanut butter (3PP) and a small banana (0PP)

2. Cheerios (2PP) sprinkled with 1 tablespoon sliced almonds (1PP) with 1/2 cup blueberries (0PP) and 1/2 banana (0PP) and almond milk (2PP)

Lunch

I like to keep lunch quick and easy. Limiting my choices makes weight loss/maintenance easier. (Here’s research that supports this idea.) I eat lunch out a few days a week.

We’ve been doing a lot of celebrating around here the past couple of weeks and it will continue this wee, so I’m going to make a big pot of WW Zero Points Soup to have for lunch the days I’m home. It works with Simply Filling too.

1. WW Garden Vegetable Soup  (0PP)- One of my favorite soups is this simple garden vegetable soup. Brimming with vegetables that you can modify it to suit your tastes and what’s available/in season. I’ll have it with 1 serving of Triscuits (3PP) and a couple wedges of Laughing Cow cheese (2PP)

2. Leftovers from Dinner

Dinner

Because we are a family of two most recipes result in leftovers, so, I only cook from scratch three or four times a week. (We eat out once or twice.) It’s my birthday this week, so we’ll be eating out even more than usual. I’m planning to keep it extra simple in the kitchen :-)

1. Pork Chop – 4 ounces (4PP) grilled with teriyaki sauce (0PP) with baked sweet potato (4PP) and grilled asparagus (0PP) with 1 teaspoon olive oil (1PP) and lemon juice (0PP)

2.  Easy Baked Fish with Lemon + Herbs (2PP)- Here’s an easy baked fish recipe with lemon and herbs that couldn’t be quicker, simpler or more delicious. It comes together in less than 20 minutes. Perfect when you need a quick and easy dinner. Serve with brown rice (3 PP) and carrots (0PP) roasted with olive oil (1PP)

3. Light Macaroni and Cheese with Cauliflower (8PP) with simple tossed green salad (oPP) with olive oil (1PP) and balsamic vinegar (0PP)

4. Breakfast for Dinner – Scrambled eggs (4PP) with cherry tomatoes (0PP) roasted with olive oil (1PP) and potatoes (4PP)  roasted with olive oil  (1PP) and herbs.

5. Leftover Buffet (AKA: Clean out the Fridge Night)

Snacks

1. Light popcorn (2PP)

2. Apple (0PP) with a little peanut butter (3PP)

Dessert

1. Enlightened Carrot Cake Cupcakes (6PP) – Since it’s my birthday I’m going to celebrate with one of my favorite desserts of all time – carrot cake – made lighter :-)

If you make one of our recipes, we would love for you to a picture and share it on Instagram. Use the hashtag #simplenourishedliving. We want to see what you are making and would love for you to follow us on Instagram.

And remember, there’s a Weight Watchers Meal Plans Section on the blog so you can get inspiration from all of the previous weekly meal plans too.

Have a wonderful week!

Here’s another delicious recipe from Mom. She is calling it her Best Chili Recipe Ever which is saying something, because 1) she’s made quite a few pots of chili through the years and 2) she is particular when it comes to the flavor of her food!

Mom's Best Chili Recipe Ever with Weight Watchers Points

She shared some of there best chili recipe ever and I agree with her assessment. It was full of flavor without being too spicy, filling but not overly heavy.

Skinny on Mom’s Best Chili Recipe Ever

Mom made a few changes to the original recipe, which she has noted in parenthesis. To keep this WW friendly, you may want to use all lean ground beef. But if you’re more interested in maximum flavor, I’d say do what she did – use half ground beef and half sausage.  Enjoy!

Take it away Mom….

“My BEST chili recipe ever – and I used combination ingredients from several recipes! Found it to be a lighter version than many that I’ve made; filling without that ‘heavy’ feeling! Nourishing and really delicious — as also stated by my working crew that I fed for lunch and my daughter – another food critic!! All agreed. Hope you do too!!”

Best Chili Recipe Ever
 
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
 
This is the best chili recipe ever that I've made. I used part lean ground sirloin and part Jimmy Dean sausage and canned chili beans. Everyone who tried it gave it high marks for flavor. It was satisfying without being too heavy.
Author:
Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • 2 pounds 95% lean ground beef (I substituted 1 pound Jimmy Dean Sausage with Sage and 1 pound ground sirloin)
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 4-5 cloves fresh garlic, chopped
  • ½ large red or orange bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 cans (15.5 ounces each) chili beans in sauce (I used S&W brand in zesty sauce)
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1 can (10 ounces) Rotel tomatoes (w/green chili peppers)
  • 1 small can (4.5 ounces) mild green chile peppers
  • 1 can (29 ounces) whole tomatoes, chopped; or 2 cans diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
Instructions
  1. In a stock pot set over medium heat, cook the the ground sirloin and sausage, stirring and breaking up the clumps, until no longer pink, about 10 minutes.
  2. Add the chopped onion and garlic and continue to cook until the onion is softened and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and stir to mix.
  3. Bring the mixture to a simmer and then reduce heat to low and continue to simmer for approximately 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Remove from the heat and stand for a while (ideally, at least 20 minutes) to give the mixture time to thicken and flavors to meld further.
  5. Serve warm with optional garnishes if desired.
  6. Optional garnishes: cheese, raw onions, tortilla chips and freshly squeezed lime.
Cook's Notes
Nutritional Estimates Per Serving (1/8th recipe): 296 calories,7g fat,29g carbs,8g fiber, 32g protein and *7 Weight Watchers PointsPlus

A few more notes from the cook: “I believe that next time I make it – I would use the same ingredients and seasonings, but would also add a few more veggies: sliced mushrooms (for sure) and maybe some zucchini. All in all, very flavorful and satisfying. For me, a ‘keeper’! I find the S&W brand of chili beans have just the perfect amount of seasoning, and will also continue to use that brand. (I found them at the 99c store!!)

Welcome to another REAL Weight Watchers success story that we’d like to share with you. Find out how Michelle, who is quickly approaching her 1 year anniversary as a Weight Watcher, was able to lose 65 pounds in less than one year.

Michelle C.'s Weight Watchers Success Story

Michelle C.’s Weight Watchers Success Story

Weight Watchers Success Story #4: Michelle C.

Tell Us A Little Bit About Your Weight Struggle
I’ve been struggling with my weight since I graduated college. I lost a ton of weight several years ago before getting married, and gained it all back and then some after the birth of my son in 2012. About a year ago, I topped the scales at 226 pounds. And I’m only 5 foot tall. I’ve never been that heavy in my life. I hadn’t stepped on a scale in years, just trying to forget I had a problem. That all changed when I saw my doctor, who FORCED me to get on the scale after my labs came back horrible. My cholesterol was astronomical, my blood pressure was high and I was pre-diabetic. He told me if I didn’t do something about this I was going to have a stroke before I turned 40. I was devastated and signed up for WW that weekend. That was a year ago next week.

What Was Your Wake-Up Call Or “A-Ha Moment” That Caused You To Sign Up With Weight Watchers?
Going to the doctor’s office and getting the “bad news.”

How Have Your Eating Habits Changed Since Weight Watchers? What Did You Eat Before And What Are You Eating Now?
Before, I had no will power and no portion-control. I would binge eat at night – just mindlessly dipping my hand into the cereal box or dipping my spoon in a huge carton of ice cream. Instead of actually portioning it and having that be it for the night. I had muffins or croissants for breakfast every day. My lunch and dinner weren’t necessarily horrible — but I had no portion control and my late night eating really packed on the pounds. Since WW – and because I’m dealing with significant GI issues – I have really been cognizant of portion sizes. I track everything on my phone. To me, that phone app is the greatest invention ever. I eat a banana and apples every day. I eat oatmeal for breakfast. I eat a sensible lunch and dinner. Night eating is still a challenge but I’ve started Simply Filling and I’m trying to eat foods that fill me up so I don’t feel like eating so much at night.

What Is The Difference In Your Fitness Before Weight Watchers And Now?
Before Weight Watchers I did nothing but lay on the couch in the break room on my lunch breaks at work. Now, I run or speed walk outside about three miles (an hour) every day with my co-worker, who I got to join Weight Watchers with me, and who has also been very successful. We also run up stairs and do hills. I also have another co-worker who is much more physically fit and has pushed me to do a 5-K run in May, which is very exciting. I did a boot camp for a while, which unfortunately I had to stop due to back problems. It was very intense, but it made me realize what my body was capable of doing with a little motivation.

What Has Been The Biggest Change/Payoff For You So Far?
My clothing. I’ve gotten rid of the “fat” clothes and can finally start shopping again and getting back in my old clothes. My winter coats would split open last year. Now they are roomy. I’ve enjoyed getting dressed in the morning again, when I used to dread it. I’ve lost 65 pounds in a year and have another 23 or so to go. I love Weight Watchers and how it has changed my life. More than just the weight loss, my health has improved and I can hopefully be around for many years for my son.

How Much Weight Have You Lost? How Long Did It Take You To Lose It?
Sorry I keep answering the questions beforehand. I’ve lost 65 pounds in just under a year. April 19 is my one-year anniversary on the Weight Watchers program. I plan to celebrate that milestone at my Saturday meeting.

Any Advice Or Words Of Wisdom That You’d Like To Share
Do not give up – even if you gain a week or don’t lose anything. This is a LIFELONG journey and a LIFELONG commitment to eating healthy and exercising.

Weight Watchers Meal Plans Week 25

Another week, another meal plan.

Every Saturday I share my Weight Watchers Meal Plans here on Simple Nourished Living. It includes what I’m planning to have for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well a few snack and dessert ideas.

To keep things simple I tend to rotate between the same one or two breakfasts and lunches the days I eat at home. And because we are a family of two most recipes I make result in leftovers that we are happy to eat again.  So, I usually only cook from scratch three or four times a week. We like to eat out a couple of times, usually during the weekend.

I hope these posts make it easier for you to stay on track with your weight loss and/or healthy eating goals too.

And remember, there’s a Weight Watchers Meal Plans Section on the blog so you can get inspiration from all of the previous weekly meal plans too. Enjoy!

Weight Watchers Meal Plan (Week #25)

Breakfast

This week I’m going to begin the day with a large mug of decaf coffee (0PP) and either:

1. Banana Peanut Butter Breakfast Sushi: Spread a medium tortilla (2PP) with one tablespoon peanut butter (3PP). Place a small banana (0PP) on top and roll up. Then cut into bite-size pieces.

2. Yogurt Fruit Cereal Sundae: Place 1 cup fat free plain Greek yogurt (3PP) in a small bowl. Top with 1/2 cup chopped fresh fruit (0PP). Drizzle with 2 teaspoons maple syrup (1PP) and top with 1/2 crumbled up shredded wheat biscuit (1PP)

Lunch

I like to keep lunch quick and easy. Limiting my choices makes weight loss/maintenance easier. (Here’s research that supports this idea.) I eat lunch out a few days a week. On the days I’m home I plan to have:

1. Lemony Lentil Quinoa Salad (6pp): This lemony lentil quinoa salad is the recipe that finally turned me into a quinoa lover. It’s quick and easy if you use already cooked lentils, which I get a Trader Joe’s.

2. Leftovers from Dinner

Dinner

Because we are a family of two most recipes result in leftovers, so, I only cook from scratch three or four times a week. (We eat out once or twice.)

1. Slow Cooker Roasted Rosemary Chicken (3PP) (or pick up a rotisserie chicken at the grocery store.) with Orange Spinach Salad (3PP) and warm crusty whole grain baguette (2PP)

2. Burgers  – 4 ounces 95% lean ground beef burger (3PP) on a lightly toasted english muffin (3PP) with lettuce (oPP) tomato (0PP) mustard (0PP) and ketchup (0PP). Serve with easy broccoli slaw (2PP).

3.  Chicken Avocado Salad (5PP) using leftover roasted chicken with warm crusty whole grain baguette (2PP)

4. Mom’s Baked Gnocchi Bolognese Skillet (7PP) with simple tossed green salad (oPP) with olive oil (1PP) and balsamic vinegar (0PP)

5. Leftover Buffet (AKA: Clean out the Fridge Night)

Snacks

1. Fruit (apple, orange, or pear) (0) with a string cheese (2) OR nuts (3)

2. Baby Carrots (0) with 1/4 cup Hummus (2)

Dessert

1. Easy blonde brownies (3PP) – Because this easy blond brownie recipe uses melted butter, there’s no creaming of butter and sugar required, making them really easy to stir together. And even though they’re lower in fat, they still bake up rich and chewy.

If you make one of our recipes, we would love for you to a picture and share it on Instagram. Use the hashtag #simplenourishedliving. We want to see what you are making and would love for you to follow us on Instagram.

And remember, there’s a Weight Watchers Meal Plans Section on the blog so you can get inspiration from all of the previous weekly meal plans too.

Have a wonderful week!

Spring has sprung. It’s the time of year when I begin craving more light and healthy salads. I’ve scoured the archives and my favorite Weight Watchers Recipe websites to assemble a collection of 39+ Weight Watchers Salad Recipes that will make your tastebuds smile!

weight watchers salad recipes with points plus

And while spring and summer is when we naturally turn to eating more salads, several of these light and healthy salads will work for us Weight Watchers any time of year. You’ll find chicken salads, tuna salads, salmon salads, shrimp salads, vegetable salads, grain salads, fruit salads and more. Enjoy!

My Favorite Weight Watchers Salad Recipes

Chopped-Salad-with-Grilled-Shrimp-and-Watermelon

Grilled Shrimp and Watermelon Salad is one of Gina from SkinnyTaste’s FAVORITES! Chopped romaine lettuce tossed with sweet, juicy watermelon, grilled shrimp and goat cheese and a golden balsamic vinaigrette sounds light, healthy and delicious.

Shrimp Black Bean Salad Weight Watchers Salad Recipes

Southwest Shrimp + Black Bean Salad – This simple Southwest Shrimp Black Bean Salad is an easy, healthy and delicious winner in my book. It’s perfect for a light one-dish lunch or supper for Weight Watchers.

Salmon Egg Asparagus Salad

Salmon Egg Asparagus Salad – I got the idea for this salmon egg asparagus after seeing Gina’s Asparagus Egg Bacon Salad on SkinnyTaste. I made a few changes so it would work with what I had on hand: leftover roasted asparagus and a pouch of pink salmon. By using bottled vinaigrette and adding a couple handful of mixed greens, I was able to toss this salad together in minutes for a quick and easy lunch last week.

Cheeseburger Salad

Pampered Chef Cheeseburger Salad made Weight Watchers friendly – A great easy recipe that will satisfy the whole family, young and old alike. If you’re looking for a salad dish with ground beef or are wondering what can I make with ground beef that would be easy, tasty and healthy, you may want to give this delicious cheeseburger salad a try. Its a family favorite Weight Watchers Salad Recipes.

Doritos-Taco-Salad-4c

Doritos Taco Salad from Emily Bites. This dish is sure to be a crowd pleaser whether out at a party or at home on your dinner table. Doritos and tacos together in a waistline friendly salad – who wouldn’t want that?

Southwestern Beef Salad

Weight Watchers Southwestern Beef Salad with Chile Lime Dressing – This Southwestern Beef Salad with Chile Lime Dressing was a big hit when I made it for dinner recently.  I liked it because it was easy to make. It’s a no-cook, one-bowl recipe, perfect for summer. All I had to do was some assembly. And Rod liked this Southwestern Beef Salad’s main ingredients: beef and corn. A winning combination in his book.

panera-chicken-salad-1

Panera Fuji Apple Chicken Salad Made Skinny – from Skinny Kitchen with many of the same ingredients and a few skinny substitutes. It’s lower in fat and calories with fat-free feta cheese instead of Gorgonzola and fresh apple in addition to the apple chips.

Healthy Chicken Salad with Apples and Cranberries Weight Watchers Salad Recipes

Chicken Salad with Apples and Cranberries – This salad, which has been shared more than 85k times is a winner! Leftover rotisserie chicken, apples, celery, and dried cranberries in a light creamy Greek yogurt based dressing combine to create this light and delicious chicken salad with apples and cranberries. Which reminds me of a classic Waldorf salad – only lighter – and with chicken.

Weight Watchers Chicken Salad Recipes

Weight Watchers Chicken Salad Recipes. All easy healthy and delicious with low calories and Weight Watchers Points Plus. 9 Weight Watchers Chicken Salads – To keep from getting board, I’m always trying out new Weight Watchers chicken salad recipes. Here are 9 of my favorites, all with calories and Points Plus including Chicken Avocado SaladGrilled Chicken Greek SaladChicken and Quinoa Salad with Dried FruitSatay Chicken Pasta Salad and more.

healthy crunchy tuna salad

Healthy Crunchy Tuna Salad – Fresh and crisp, this healthy crunchy tuna salad is more cabbage than tuna, perfect when you’re craving a light but satisfying lunch. I added dried cranberries for a dash of color and sweet chewiness and a tiny bit of dijon mustard for tang. (Lemon juice would work too.)

Weight Watchers Salad Recipes – Vegetable Salads

warm-mushroom-and-asparagus-salad-675x453

Warm Mushroom Asparagus Salad – from LaaLoosh is perfect for spring. Salads don’t always have to be cold as this this delicious warm mushroom and asparagus salad recipe perfectly demonstrates.

Brussels Sprouts Salad with Maple Mustard Dressing 2

Brussels Sprouts Salad with Maple Mustard Dressing – Lightly steamed brussels sprouts, sliced and tossed with a simple maple mustard dressing, then topped with toasted chopped pecans. This sweet and tangy brussels sprouts salad makes a perfect side dish for a winter supper and was a great way to use up the bag of brussels sprouts lingering in the vegetable bin.

timthumb.php

Sesame Kale Salad with Mangos and Blueberries – from Slender Kitchen. A great salad when you’re craving hearty, crunchy, good for you greens. Lacinto kale, sweet mango, tart blueberries, sliced almonds, coated in a simple homemade dressing of sesame oil, honey, rice wine vinegar, salt, and a sprinkling of red pepper flakes. I love that this salad will keep for a few days in the fridge.

Weight Watchers Lightened Up Potato Salad

Weight Watchers Red Potato Salad – I don’t think anyone would ever guess that it’s a Weight Watchers recipe. Everybody ate it up when I made it for Memorial Day. It’s a great basic old-fashioned All-American Potato Salad, lightened up with light mayonnaise and Greek yogurt.

Weight Watchers Chickpea & Feta Salad

Weight Watchers Salad with Chick Peas and Feta – This easy, healthy, and delicious WW salad is another winning recipe from the July 8-14, 2012 Weight Watcher’s Weekly. It makes a great satisfying lunch on a bed of greens and would be a nice change of pace from the typical potato salad or macaroni salad at your next summer potluck or barbecue.

Salmon Panzanella

Summer Salmon + Bread Salad – This summer salmon + bread salad makes a great easy, healthy lunch or dinner option that comes together in a matter of minutes. The only thing that needs cooking is the green beans. And if turning on the stove seems like too much work, you could always substitute chopped cucumber or zucchini instead.

Light Healthy Lemon Lentil Quinoa Salad

Lemony Lentil Quinoa Salad – Low in fat and packed with fiber, this lemony lentil quinoa salad is as good for you as it is delicious. What more could a healthy Weight Watcher want? Each serving has 254 calories and *6 Weight Watchers Points Plus. I think it will work for Simply Filling,  provided you count the oil as part of daily requirement. (Each serving has 1 teaspoon olive oil.)

Summer Corn and Tomato Salad

Simple Summer Corn and Tomato Salad – Easy. Healthy. Fresh. Delicious. Wait to make this simple summer corn tomato salad, which I like even better than corn-on-the-cob,  when corn and tomatoes are fresh and in season.

Warm Fig & Goat Cheese Salad

Warm Goat Cheese + Fig Salad – The flavors and textures of this warm fig and goat cheese salad is my attempt to recreate a recipe I first tasted in Paris decades ago. It delighted me in a way food never had done before and for which I am forever grateful.

Tomato Brown Rice Basil Salad

Brown Rice, Tomato + Basil Salad – If you’re on the lookout for easy tasty Weight Watchers salad recipes this fits the bill.  With just a handful of ingredients you can make it in minutes, especially if you have leftover brown rice in the refrigerator. It’s an oldie but goodie from the Barefoot Contessa Family Style: Easy Ideas and Recipes That Make Everyone Feel Like Family that I first made years ago and adapted just slight for Weight Watchers.

Skinny Chopped Greek Salad

Skinny Chopped Greek Salad – Chickpeas, cucumber, grape tomatoes, red onion, kalamata olives and feta cheese tossed in a simple lemon olive oil dressing. If you’re a Greek salad fan, this is a fun twist that holds up for a couple of days in the fridge, making it a great choice to pack for work.

French Carrot Salad

Simple Shredded Carrot Salad –  I slightly adapted this simple French shredded carrot salad, Carrottes Rapees, from one of my latest cookbook acquisition, The Bonne Femme Cookbook: Simple, Splendid Food That French Women Cook Every Day. I used only 1 tablespoon of olive oil, instead of 2, giving it a Weight Watchers PointsPlus Value (PPV) of 2.

Pasta Arugula Salad

Pasta Salad with Walnuts, Blue Cheese and Arugula – Filled with many of my favorite ingredients (pasta, arugula, blue cheese, grape tomatoes and walnuts), this is everything I want in a salad – easy to make, pretty to look at, and delicious to eat. It’s another winner from the Weight Watchers Weekly.

Classic Macaroni Salad Made Lighter

Classic Macaroni Salad Made Lighter -  It doesn’t get more simple or delicious than this classic macaroni salad. Growing up, it was part of most picnics and backyard barbecues. To keep things Weight Watchers friendly, I substituted plain nonfat Greek yogurt for half the mayonnaise. So this is technically classic macaroni salad made lighter.

Skinny Waldorf Salad

Skinny Waldorf Salad – Diced apples, celery, red grapes, and dried cranberries in a light and creamy yogurt-based mustard-enhanced dressing. I think this updated Waldorf salad recipe, from 5 Easy Steps to Healthy Cooking: 500 Recipes for Lifelong Wellness, by Camilla Saulsbury (that I modified only a little) is a winner.

Southwest Stoplight Quinoa Salad

Southwest Stop Light Quinoa Salad – This colorful tasty southwest quinoa salad is great on its own as a light lunch or served alongside grilled meat, chicken or fish for an easy healthy dinner. It’s a great gluten free Weight Watchers friendly alternative to rice, with only 4 Weight Watchers PointsPlus value per serving.

Citrus, Pomegranate, and Honey with Toasted Coconut

Winter Citrus and Pomegranate Fruit Salad

Ruby red grapefruit, orange and clementine slices topped with pomegranate seeds and toasted and drizzled with honey, this Winter Citrus and Pomegranate Fruit Salad is as colorful as it is healthy and delicious.

Easy Healthy Broccoli Slaw

Easy Healthy Broccoli Slaw with Cranberries – This easy healthy broccoli slaw with dried cranberries and sunflower seeds makes a delicious quick and easy side dish or lunchtime salad. I think it’s the perfect combination of sweet, tangy, chewy and crunchy. And it’s simple to toss together. Especially if you begin with a package of broccoli slaw mix, which is exactly what I did.

fall fruit and grain salad

Skinny + Delicious Fall Fruit + Grain Salad – Crunchy apples, juicy grapes, hearty grains, tangy dried cranberries, sweet chopped dates, and crunchy walnuts tossed with a luscious creamy vanilla-cinnamon yogurt dressing. All I can say is YUM. This easy, healthy satisfying salad works equally well for breakfast or lunch. Or as a side dish or snack.

kale salad with apple and dates

Kale Salad with Apples + Dates –  My new fall favorite is kale salad with apples and dates. Peter made it for us when he had a group of family and friends for dinner several weeks back. Everyone commented on how much they liked it and I’ve made it several times since.

Lighter Healthier Avocado Grapefruit Salad

Ina Garten’s Avocado Grapefruit Salad Made Lighter –  A lighter healthier version of this Barefoot Contessa favorite by changing the ratios of grapefruit and avocado and skipping the step of dipping each avocado half in dressing. If you are concerned that your avocado slices will turn brown on you, simply dip them in lemon juice instead.

2015 is off to a great start for us here at Simple Nourished Living. In our attempt to become the best bloggers we can be, we made the decision to attend our very first educational blogger conference in Salt Lake City, Utah, called Build Your Blog Conference. (Be sure to read all the way to the bottom to learn how to enter our essential oil giveaway.)

Build Your Blog Conference - 2014

Build Your Blog Conference – 2014

You can learn a lot about blogging just through trial-and-error and through the vast online resources that crowd the Internet. In fact, Martha and I will be putting together our very own list of blogging resources that we’ve come to rely on since we started this journey back in 2008. Be on the look out for that coming soon.

But there comes a time in every blogger’s life when it’s really beneficial to personally connect with others who are doing the same thing – sharing stories, experiences, wins, losses – things that are hard to capture in a purely online environment. I think we reached that point towards the end of 2014 and that’s why we decided to pack our bags and head to Utah for a long weekend this past February.

By the time we left Salt Lake City our heads were spinning from all the knowledge and ideas as well as new friendships and relationships we had acquired.

doTERRA (CPTG) Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils

doTERRA Essential Oils

Our biggest takeaway from the conference was totally unexpected. We discovered doTERRA essential oils, one of the conferences sponsors. Going in I knew nothing of essential oils. I honestly thought they were more like perfumes or fragrances that get mixed with oils which could then be diffused to make the air smell nice or rubbed into the skin – kind of like a moisturizer. I know Martha had a bit more exposure to the world of essential oils since she had gone through the training to be a certified massage therapist.

Wild Orange (Citrus sinensis) Essential Oil

Wild Orange Essential Oil

Every day on our way to the main hall, we passed by a room that gave off the most amazing incredible smell. (So much so that we’re having problems putting the experience into words).

This is one of those instances that I wish your computer screen was scratch-and-sniff. Each time we walked passed, Martha and I breathed deeply, turned to one another and smiled. I had this feeling that it was somehow good for me too.

It sounds geeky but it’s true.

As luck would have it, everyone who attended the conference had a little card from doTERRA in their “swag bag” which they could redeem for a free bottle of Wild Orange Essential Oil.

I love orange – anything orange – the color, the taste – in fact you’ll find many orange-flavored recipes here on Simple Nourished Living, including: Orange Creamsicle Smoothie, Orange Blackberry Trifle, Orange-Pineapple Muffin Cake and Skinny Yogurt Panna Cotta with Honey and Orange just to name a few.

On the last day of the conference, we stopped by to pick up our free gifts. There we met doTERRA Wellness Advocates Shannon Bryan and Molly Dayton, who encouraged us to add a drop of doTERRA Lemon Essential Oil to a water bottle. It smelled and tasted delicious and is so much healthier than those artificial water-flavorings that are so popular these days.

We also entered to receive a free Home Essentials kit that doTERRA was giving away to 10 lucky recipients.

With well over 700 participants at the conference, odds were certainly not in our favor, but I did get the feeling that we would win one of them.

And I was right :)

Shortly after getting back home to Phoenix, we received an email from Brady at doTERRA letting us know that we were selected to receive a free Home Essentials Kit (valued at $275) in exchange for providing a review here on Simple Nourished Living. We just got our kit about a week ago, and it’s been a blast experimenting with all the oils.

Home Essentials Kit from doTERRA

doTERRA Home Essentials Kit

The Home Essentials Kit – which contains many of doTERRA’s most popular oils – is perfect for anyone new to essential oils. The kit includes:

  • The popular Petal diffuser
  • Frankincense essential oil (15mL bottle)
  • Lavender essential oil (15mL bottle)
  • Lemon essential oil (15mL bottle)
  • Melaleuca essential oil (15mL bottle)
  • Oregano essential oil (15mL bottle)
  • Peppermint essential oil (15mL bottle)
  • Breathe Respiratory Blend (5mL bottle)
  • DigestZen Digestive Blend (5mL bottle)
  • On Guard Protective Blend (5mL bottle)
  • Deep Blue Soothing Blend (5mL bottle)

Ways That I Have Started Using Essential Oils

Peppermint water is my new favorite way to soothe my stomach. A couple of weeks ago we had some friends and family over for dinner. My mom made a wonderful Pinapple-Banana Cake for dessert – and who doesn’t eat ice cream with their cake.

Normally I am not a big lover of ice cream, but I was interested in trying a new flavor – “German Chocolate Cake” gelatto by Talenti.

Shortly afterwards I developed a really bad stomach ache and I sort of think I have an issue with the lactose in ice cream, but I’ve never been officially diagnosed. It’s just a gut-feeling (no pun intended).

Anyway, Martha suggested I add a drop of peppermint to my water and see if that helped. Amazingly enough, I started feel better almost immediately.

Now, whenever my belly starts feeling a little upset, I’m making myself a tall cool glass of peppermint water.

I’ve also done some baking with the Lemon and Wild Orange essentials oils. I recently made a Strawberry Lemon Baked Oatmeal (recipe coming soon) and I’ve also made a Blueberry Orange Baked Oatmeal (recipe coming soon). These oils give a great flavor when you can’t easily get the juice or zest.

After watching a few popular videos (see below) from Dr. David K. Hill (doTERRA’s Medical Expert), I started following his recommendations for incorporating lemon, lavender and peppermint essential oils on a daily basis.

Rubbing a few drops of lavender oil on the bottoms of my feet before bed to aid in a restful sleep.

Apply Lavender Essential Oil to Bottom of Feet

Rubbing Lavender Oil on Bottoms of Feet

Rubbing peppermint and frankincense oils on the bottoms of my feet in the morning for a nice pick-me-up.

Diffusing On-Guard with my new petal diffuser helps to clear the air during sleep and offers healthy immune support. is a proprietary blend from doTERRA that includes Wild Orange, Clove, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus and Rosemary essential oils. It smells amazing.

Adding doTERRA On-Guard to Diffuser

Adding On-Guard Essential Oil To My Diffuser

Adding peppermint and lemon oils to water for drinking throughout the day.

My shoulder has also been bothering me for the last couple of weeks. I really didn’t do anything to it, but I think I sleep on it most nights and I usually wake up with some soreness and tightness.

I’ve been using Deep Blue which is a proprietary oil blend containing: Wintergreen, Camphor, Peppermint, Blue Tansy, German Chamomile, Helichrysum, and Osmanthus essential oils and is designed to help ease achy joints and muscle soreness. It’s a natural alternative to Ben-Gay or Icy-Hot that provides the same deep and penetrating cooling sensation with just a couple of drops rubbed in to the achy area.

Hi everyone, we’re so excited to be sharing another great REAL Weight Watchers success story with you. This one comes from Sandy V, a longtime lifetime member who has shed 62 pounds over the past 8 months and is now just 15 pounds away from her goal weight :-)

I hope reading her story motivates and inspires you as much as it did us!

Sandy's Weight Loss Success With Weight Watchers

Sandy’s Weight Watchers Success Story

Weight Loss Success Story #3: Sandy V.

Tell us a little bit about your weight struggle:
I have been a member of Weight Watchers since my second son was born. 17 years ago I lost 45 pounds to become a lifetime member. Over the many years following, I have been up and down, but mostly up. This past June I decided the time had come to shed the 70 pounds I had gained back. After going to the doctors with my parents, I saw that I was headed down the same path as they were health-wise. I started reading extensively about clean eating and took those principles back to the good things I learned through Weight Watchers. I now track everyday. I apply the Simply Filling power food guidelines but I track the points. I do not eat processed food. I am very selective about the types of oils I use. To lose those last 15 pounds, I know I have to start exercising, so that’s my next goal to conquer…and I know I can.

What was your wake-up call or “A-ha moment” that caused you to sign-up with Weight Watchers?
When my kids were little it was just losing pregnancy weight. This most recent time, when my daughter was a junior in college, I realized she was growing up – as were my other two sons – and it was time I did something for myself.

How have your eating habits changed since Weight Watchers? What did you eat before and what are you eating now?
I am on a strictly filling foods with no processed food regime. I now eat lots of great, real food.

What is the difference in your fitness before Weight Watchers and now?
That’s my next goal, to work the exercise portion in on a regular basis.

What has been the biggest change/payoff for you so far?
It’s pretty sweet wearing jeans in sizes I didn’t even wear in high school:) Also, my cholesterol score has gone down over a 100 points!

How much weight have you lost? How long did it take you to lose it?
So far, 62 pounds in 8 months. I still have 15 pounds to go to reach my goal.

Any advice and/or words of wisdom you’d like to share?
Going to weekly meetings, tracking and weighing in is paramount… You need accountability. I sat for years contributing to the Weight Watchers Society…I was not ready. But my leader Debbie always said the light turns on when you are ready, and I am ready and finding great success.

We’ve added a new feature, where you can submit your recipes to be shared here on Simple Nourished Living. I love collecting and sharing recipes. I can’t begin to tell you how many wonderful recipes I’ve obtained from family and friends through the years. And some of my favorite Weight Watchers recipes came through discussions at WW Meetings.

One of my biggest and best sources for easy tasty recipes is my mom. So, it only seemed right that the first recipe submission be one from her. We asked her to help us test out our submit your recipe form and she happily obliged with this delicious Baked Gnocchi Bolognese Skillet.

Baked Gnocchi Bolognese Recipe

Baked Gnocchi Bolognese Skillet

Take it away, Mom…

“This recipe for baked gnocchi bolognese skillet is quick and easy with very few ingredients. And I LOVE Italian food; or anything (pretty much) that resembles it! It’s been a long-time favorite of mine. Just after high school, I left my home to work in another state where I lived for a year with my half-brother and his wife. She was 100% Italian heritage – an only child – and learned to make sauce at her mother’s elbow! I, in turn, learned to make sauce and meatballs at her elbow – and while NEVER able to perfect to her level, I did a fairly decent job!

Over the years, this start with homemade sauce, etc., has served me and my family well! I believe that my husband and children had little choice other than to love Italian food – they certainly were surrounded by it throughout their growing years!”

The Skinny on Baked Gnocchi Bolognese Skillet

“I enjoyed this recipe very much – passed some on to family and they agreed as well. We love to experiment with recipes and we always enjoy sharing and getting others’ opinions. Each of us have long lists of either ‘scratches’ or ‘do agains'; this one made the latter list!”

According to Martha’s calculations, each serving has 244 calories and *7 Weight Watchers Points Plus. You could definitely bulk this up with more spinach and I think chopped mushrooms and/or zucchini would be good too.

Enjoy!
