Meals and Snacks I Made Ahead: Meal Prep and Menu Plan: November 11, 2019

This post contains affiliate links.

I’ve been a WW (Weight Watchers) member for 10 months now, but I haven’t followed the plan for awhile thanks to all of the travel my husband has had to do for work and the girls and I did when we went to Michigan.  Now, all the travel is done for a few months, and I feel ready to tackle WW again.  I’m especially excited that they have a new plan coming out today, so I’ll start having meals and snacks just for me that are WW friendly in my upcoming meals and snacks I made ahead posts.

Meals & Snacks I Made Ahead

Dairy Free Gluten Free Meal Prep

This week we didn’t need any snacks, but I did decide to make several lunches.  I’m planning to follow the new Purple WW plan, so I tried to make some meals that were Purple-friendly for me.

Meals I Made Ahead

Black Beans with Bell Peppers and Rice (an easy lunch for any of us, and this made a huge amount!)

I made this using 4 cups black beans, 3 cups rice, 3 colored bell peppers, one onion and 1 cup Daiya cheese.  Preparing it that way, Black Beans with Bell Peppers and Rice is 2 SmartPoints on Purple.

Salsa Verde Chicken Casserole (for the kids’ lunches–I used a tofu based sour cream and Daiya cheese to make this dairy free)

Baked Oatmeal

I changed this recipe a little.  I did NOT use the brown sugar, and I used unsweetened applesauce.  I used 1/3 cup maple syrup, and I added 1 cup almond milk.  Prepared like this, Baked Oatmeal is 4 SmartPoints on Purple.

Baked Chicken Breasts
