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
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)
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.
Our Menu Plan for the Week
Rotisserie chicken, cucumber slices, tater tots
Pizza Casserole, broccoli
Taco Soup (replacing the corn with peppers)
Chalupa Salad for me and my husband, Chalupa Nachos for the Kids (from MyFreezEasy)
TBD. Either leftovers or a meal from the freezer from my last big freezer cooking session.
What do you have on your menu plan this week? Did you make any meals or snacks ahead?
