I’m really enjoying the discipline of being back on Weight Watchers and menu planning is definitely helping with that! I’ve lost 3.8 pounds so far and I’m really thrilled with the healthier foods I’m eating.
Today I tried my hand at some meal prep by roasting butternut squash, zucchini and yellow squash to have on hand for lunches this week.
My menu this week if fairly simple with only two relatively new recipes.
Here’s my menu plan for this week…
Sunday – Fish Tacos; Butternut squash; Tortilla Chips
Monday – Black Eyed Peas & Rice; Cornbread muffins
Tuesday – Asian Chicken & Veggie Stir-fry
Wednesday – Easy Crock Pot Chicken and Black Bean Taco Salad
Friday – dinner with friends
One question I have been asked is if my kids eat the same thing as I do. And, yes, they do! Really, instead of thinking of being on Weight Watchers as a short-term diet, I think of it as a lifestyle change. It truly is just a healthier way of eating and everyone can benefit from that. I refuse to cook more than one meal for dinner!
The difference is sides and snacks. My kids eat snacks throughout the day that are vastly different from the snacks that I eat. Also, with their meals I may serve sides for the kids that I don’t eat myself depending on my smart point balance. Also, our portion sizes may differ. My kids often have seconds and I limit myself to just one serving that has been precisely measured.
So tell me…what’s on your menu plan for this week?
