Meal Plan Monday

After focusing on my activity level and drinking more water/less sweet tea last week, this week I'm ready to focus on revamping my eating habits.  I did try to make healthier choices last week, whenever possible, but this week, I'm able to be more in control of what I'm eating.  I'm trying a lot of new recipes this week, most of which came from Gina's WW Recipes.

I love Gina's blog!  It has tons of healthy, low-fat recipes and each recipe includes that recipe's Weight Watchers Points values.  There are beautiful, full-color photos of most recipe items and you can find them sorted in a variety of way in Gina's sidebar to allow for easy searching.

For the record, I'm fixing separate lunches for my kids, since I'm doing several salads and some leftovers, but the entire family will be eating the same meal for dinner.


Lunch: Chicken salad sandwiches (This was yesterday's meal.  Yum!)

Dinner:  Chicken stir-fry (last night...I love when healthy tastes good!  The best I can figure, this was about 3 points per serving, not including the rice.)


Lunch:  Cobb Salad

Dinner: Baked Chicken Parmesan, baked zucchini sticks, salad and garlic bread


Lunch:  Pita bread pizza

Dinner:  Shrimp fried rice (I'm leaving out the spicy.)


Lunch:  Tuna-stuffed tomato

Dinner: Chicken chili w/Fritos (I've made this before and it's a little spicy for us.  I'm going to use regular diced tomatoes and probably leave out the taco seasoning or use half the package.)


Lunch: Hummus, tomato and cucumber sandwich

Dinner:  Eating at my sister's house.  I'm taking chocolate chip clouds for dessert.


Lunch:  leftovers

Dinner:  Stuffed bell peppers


Brunch:  eggs, bacon and hash browns (Remember that indulgence day?)

Dinner:  Spaghetti w/grilled chicken and grape tomatoes, salad and garlic bread (This was actually this past Saturday's meal -- it got the thumbs up from everyone.)

  1. That looks delicious! My sisters & Mom & I have a weight-loss blog, though we're not terribly consistent with it, and one of us is pregnant right now! But I think that it does help. Good luck!

  2. Great menu! Keep up the good work.

  3. Wow! Thanks for the tip of Gina's WW recipes. I'm browsing, drooling, and planning meals of my own!


  4. Looks like a yummy week at your house. Keep up the good work!
