Weight Watchers Menu Jan 6th -12th

I'm back with a second round of Weight Watchers friendly menus! Of course they are just weight loss friendly, but since I am on Weight Watchers, I call them that lol.

Sadly they don't include points, and here is why. You might make it differently, eat a different amt or need a different amt of food than I do. I can't tell you what to eat, just show you what I eat :) Hope you don't mind. 

Without further ado!

Lets break it down. 

Sunday:
  • We typically eat a large meal for brunch, rather than breakfast and lunch. I left breakfast and snack blank on Sunday and Saturday to show this. 
  • Spicy Thai Pasta from A Small Snippet
Monday:
  • For the Asian Chicken I recommend a teriyaki flavored sauce. I got an Orange Chicken glaze, which is certainly not clean, but you don't have to :)
  • We are going to try to make corn tortillas from the recipe posted on Friday. Wish me luck!
Tuesday:
  • Pretty straight forward…
Wednesday: 
  • For Green Chili Enchiladas, we are going to cook the Chicken and cube it up, then mix it in LF cream cheese and a little cheese. We are using Carb Balance flour tortillas (tho I would love to learn how to make these too) and smothering them in canned green chili Enchilada sauce. Yummy!
Thursday:
  • The Cheesy Chicken Croissants are a delish and sadly really really fattening recipe found on Food.com. The good news is with the help of my Weight Watchers Recipe Builder, I got it down from 14 pts a Croissant to 6. Yay for always choosing low fat options. 
Friday:
  • I found the Cheesy Broccoli Orzo at Iowa Girl Eats, and we are going to add Chicken to it :)
Saturday:
  • Same as Sunday, no breakfast or first snack, just a big brunch we will make after church. Our French Toast recipe is coming from Fit From Conception, tho I might use strawberries instead, and OMG isnt that genius! Check this link out for sure. 

Woot! Time for the shopping list!

Produce: 
Cucumbers
Carrots
Grapes
Avocado 
Bananas
Apples
Broccoli
Potatoes (or frozen hashbrowns if you're lazy busy ;)
Green onions
Cilantro
Lettuce 
Tomato
Strawberries

Meat:
(2) Bacon
(6) Chicken
Steak

Dairy:
Eggs
Yogurt
American Cheese
(4C) Cheddar or Colby Cheese
(2) LF Cream Cheese

The Middle:
Larabars (tho I am considering making granola bars… maybe not this week)
WW Linguini
Sesame Oil
Honey
Soy Sauce
Toasted sesame seeds
Peanuts
(1C) Orzo
Rice
Masa
Wheat bread
Tomato soup
Carb Balance Flour tortillas
Green Chili Enchilada sauce
Reduced Fat Crescent rolls (refrigerated)
Cream of chicken soup
(I think thats it. Its late…If I forgot something, sorry…)

So there you go. Another week of menus. Please tell me if these are helpful because they take about 90 minutes of prep work. 

Did you make anything from last week? Anything on here look really yummy? I can not wait to try the Stuffed French Toast using my favorite kitchen appliance of all time, the sandwich griller :)

    1. Thank you for saying that! At 11pm when your husband is sleeping next to you and you can't go to bed until you finish the menu it can be stressful. But I know I eat better when I make them, and I am really glad they are not falling on deaf ears (blind eyes?) :)

      I will definitely check out your blog. This is our year!!

  3. I am so impressed! Do you make this yourself or does weight watchers plan it for you? I would love it if someone planned my meals like this- I'd be in heaven! I just found your blog and have enjoyed getting to know you better. Hope you don't mind if I follow along!

    1. I make these babies all myself. And my partner Alex makes a set as well. I wish someone would make it for me too haha but all kidding aside making a plan like this saves me money, and keeps me on track. I hope to spread both of those benefits! Enjoy the menu :) If you try anything you like (or don't), let me know! :)

  5. Hi Jess, just found your blog via the Pharr Away link up. This post is on time as I commit to planning a menu for next week. This has been the hardest thing for me in the past for whatever reason but I think it'll make a huge difference in me getting to my mini goal so I'm making the commitment to plan out these meals and I think I'll utilize your chart as a gauge.
