Meal Plan Monday 12.07.09



This week, I have utilized Gina's Weight Watchers Recipes to help fill up my weekly meal plans with healthful, low-fat meals. I enjoyed every meal that I made from her site last week.  The kids weren't too crazy about the Chicken Chili, but I loved it with the modifications I made (so that it wasn't so spicy) and had it for lunch a couple of days.  The only other complaint was about the Shrimp Fried Rice -- next time I need to double the recipe for my crew!  Most of the lunch ideas came from The Biggest Loser 30-Day Jump Start.

Now, on to this week's meal plans:

Sunday

Breakfast:  cereal

Lunch:  Bacon sandwiches (Yes, real bacon...but on whole wheat bread using light mayo.)

Dinner:  Beef Stir-fry

Monday

Breakfast: Ham and Cheese Breakfast Melt (30-Day Jump Start, p. 51)

Lunch:  Greek Salad (30-Day Jump Start, p. 86)

DinnerBaked chicken with Dijon and lime w/steamed broccoli and carrots and cauliflower mashed potatoes

Tuesday

Breakfast: Banana Nut Oatmeal (30-Day Jump Start, p. 61)

Thursday


Breakfast:  Oatmeal (30-Day Jump Start, p. 79)

Lunch:  Leftovers

Dinner:  Family Night @ my sister's.  It's Josh's 10th birthday, so I'll be taking a real, full-fat, honest-to-Pete birthday cake and enjoying a guilt-free single, small slice.  ;-)

  2. Try center-cut bacon. 2 slice = 1 pt! With Wonder Light or Sara Lee Delightful bread, and light mayo, you could have a sandwich for three or four points.
