Here's my Weight Watchers weekly meals plan with Points Plus for next week. In addition to helping me stay on track, I hope they provide you with some healthy ideas and cooking/eating inspiration.
The countdown to Christmas continues. I hope you had a great week. I'd call mine joyful and productive. I met with new yoga clients, got our little tree decorated, enjoyed an extended lunch with a good friend one day, and with Mom on another, spent the better part of a day baking WW friendly sweet treats with Peter, and took in the Las Noches de Las Luminarias at the Desert Botanical Gardens. I managed to skip the wine at dinner three nights in a row and have been slowly savoring Rod's luscious gift of Vosges truffles.
I had Weight Watcher's Garden Vegetable Soup several days for lunch. (I've portioned out the rest and stuck it in the freezer for the first week of January 🙂
So, this week, my goal once again, is to enjoy the holidays without going totally overboard, let the chips fall where they may and reign things again in January.
Hope you have a wonderful week!
My Weight Watchers Weekly Meals Plan (12/15/14)
This week I'm going to alternate between hard boiled eggs with fruit and peanut butter with fruit for breakfast. I'll hard boil eggs Sunday so they're ready and waiting during the week. My fruit bowl is stocked with Cuties tangerines and bananas. I'll have either one or the other with a large mug of decaf coffee (0).
- Hard Boiled Eggs (4) and Fruit (0)
- 2 tangerines (0), ½ banana (0) and 1 tablespoon peanut butter (3)
I like to keep lunch quick and easy. I've learned that limiting my choices is one of my best strategies for easily maintaining my weight. I usually opt for some combination of soup, salad and/or sandwich or leftovers. I have plans to meet a friend for lunch Monday and will see Mom on another.
After last week's soup focus this week when I'm home for lunch I'll alternate between:
- Light + Easy Egg Salad (3) on an English Muffin (3) with lettuce (o) and tomato (0) (On the days I have fruit and peanut butter for breakfast)
Because we are a family of two, we often have dinner leftovers that we are happy to eat again on a subsequent night. So I usually only cook 3 or 4 nights a week 🙂 This week we'll be meeting friends for dinner Friday and Saturday nights.
- Slow Cooker Pasta Fagioli (5) with green salad (0) and light dressing (1) and whole grain toast (2)
- Grilled steak (5) and baked potato (4) with nonfat Greek yogurt (1) and steamed green beans (0) with butter (1) and almonds (1)
- Slow Cooker Ham and Sweet Potatoes (10) with green salad (0) and light dressing (1)
I've been eating a lot more sugar than normal, mostly in the form of cookies, so I'll focus on savory, fiber-filled snacks to keep things in balance.
- Apple Slices (0) with a string cheese (2)
- Light Microwave Popcorn (3)
'Tis the season for sweet treats. I'm not gonna lie, Christmas cookies are one of my favorite aspects of the holidays. I've got several different kinds cluttering up my counters as I type this. I'll be taking a big platter of them to a Christmas Party tonight and I'll tuck what's left out of my line of sight.
