Weight Watchers Friendly Meal Planning Ideas
Every Friday I send out an email with what I’m planning to eat for dinner in the coming week which I also archive here on the blog.
The Benefits of Weekly Meal Planning
It’s the only thing that prevent me from resorting to fast food or takeout more often than I should.
Every time I get out of the meal planning habit and resort to take-out, restaurants, and snacking on junk, it’s amazing how crappy I feel and how quickly the pounds pack on.
THE KEY TO EATING WELL IS COOKING.
When you’re trying to eat well, not cooking isn’t an option. There are just too many unknowns (hidden sugar, flour, fats, chemicals, points), too many temptations, and portions are way too large for you to routinely eat well on take-out or pre-made food.
THE KEY TO CONSISTENT COOKING IS PLANNING.
In the beginning meal planning can be a huge chore. The key is finding an approach that works for you over the long haul.
What I love about Slender Kitchen Meal Plans (affiliate link) is that I don’t have to think. I print out the grocery list, do the shopping and when it’s time, head into the kitchen and get right to cooking!
For those of us following Weight Watchers, having meal plans with the Freestyle smart points included can make the switch easy and stress free!

Sometimes I love sitting down with my cookbooks and favorite recipes to map out my weekly dinner menus. But right now I’m in a post holiday “just tell me what to cook” kind of mood.
That’s when Kristen’s Magical Meal Plans come to the rescue. With a couple of clicks I can download the plan, grocery list and recipes and I’m ready to go with minimal effort.
This week I’ll be using Slender Kitchen Meal Plan #51 (affiliate link) to make:

I’ll also make a pot of Slow Cooker 3 Bean Turkey Sausage Chili (2SP) to enjoy all week for quick and easy lunches.

We all know how important healthy meal planning is to lasting weight loss success. And how frustrating it can be to actually pull-off week after week.
That’s where Slender Kitchen’s Meal Planning Made Easy (affiliate link), comes to the rescue!
Here’s what other people are saying about her meal plans…
I really enjoy the Meal Plans! The best part for me is that I don’t have to come up with “what’s for dinner?” I like having that work done for me and appreciate that the leftovers are planned for another meal instead of wasting the food. I’ve been a Weight Watchers member since 1986 and I love the plan, have kept my weight down and enjoy cooking.
I’ve been following the meal plans from day one. I love, love, love the shopping list. Makes it so easy to stay organized and I’ve been saving money at the grocery store too because of it. I have enjoyed all the recipes and feel like they are so easy to follow! I purchased for the year and I’m one happy lady! Thanks again!
