Another Saturday, already! If you're a mom, have a Wonderful Mother's Day tomorrow 🙂
Every Saturday I share my Weight Watchers Meal Plans with Points 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.
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 - life happens, but it helps to have a rough guide. And prevents me from reaching into the cookie jar or open bag of chips too often. Whoever said that failing to plan was planning to fail was spot on!
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.
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 Plans with Points (Week #29)
This week I'm going to begin the day with a large mug of decaf coffee (0PP) and either:
1. English Muffin (3PP) with Peanut Butter (3PP) and fruit (0PP)
2. Slow Cooker Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal (7PP) and fruit (0PP)
I like to keep lunch quick and easy. Limiting my choices makes weight loss/maintenance easier. (Here's research that supports this idea.) I usually eat lunch out a couple days a week.
1. Leftovers from dinner.
2. Cottage Cheese (4PP) with Fruit (0PP)
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.)
2. Easy Cheese Tortellini with Broccoli and Red Peppers (10PP) with tossed green salad (0PP) and light dressing (1PP)
3. Crock Pot Salmon Fillets with Asian Vegetables (5PP) with brown rice (4PP)
4. Weight Watchers Easy Chicken Tetrazzini (7PP) with with tossed green salad (0PP) and light dressing (1PP) - a perfect way to use up the leftover slow cooker rosemary roasted chicken.
1. Apple (0PP) with a little almond butter (3PP)
2. Baby carrots (0PP) with hummus (2PP)
1. Skinny S'mores Cookies (3PP) - I love cookies. They are one of my favorite desserts of all time 🙂
