Oh man, oh man, oh man.  Did you make a New Year’s Resolution to lose weight?  How’s that going?  Still a resolution?  Fall off the diet wagon?

Maybe you didn’t want to lose weight per se, but maybe you just wanted to eat healthier.  How is that going?  Getting in your fruits and veggies?  Making better choices?

Maybe you’re stuck in a rut and you want to get out of that rut!  There are many challenges to losing weight – some of it is mental.  Some physical.  Some are just practical challenges.  One of the practical things that often trip people up is not doing a menu plan.  So it comes to Monday at 5:30 p.m. and you’re raving hungry and those cookies are on the counter, so you eat those instead of the chicken that you’re going to wish you ate.  Uh oh.

So, let us help!  One of my specialties is creating meal plans!  I do a menu plan each month.  I’ve done a Master Menu Plan.  I’ve done an Instant Pot-Only Menu Plan.  I’ve done a Slow Cooker-Only Menu Plan.  Now here comes the Weight Watchers Menu Plan!

What’s so nifty about this plan?

  • Most of these recipes should appeal to those with families.  Sure, you may need to double a recipe to feed everyone, but the recipes I’ve chosen are generally family friendly.  (Every family being different, of course).
  • Most of the recipes call for common ingredients. (Part of that is what makes them family friendly).  It’s great to try new foods, but sometimes, easy and practical are what you need.
  • All of these dinners are 8 points or less.  The number of points one person gets varies, but an 8-point dinner or less should be doable – when you plan for it!
  • There’s a variety of dinners.  Some stir frys.  Some Italian.  Some American.  Some vegetarian. Some protein-heavy.

Please note: I’ve done my best to make sure that they are 8 points or less, but you should always check your points, especially as ingredients can vary!

    Love this? Could you please do this again with more recipes that are so family friendly of foods that are regularly eaten. Also maybe a menu with desserts? Thank you so much.

    Needing help with meal planning. I’m limited due to my allergies (chicken tomatoes and onion &all seafood). Plus a very picky hubby. Weve got kids but they are here or not, older and moved away only one is close enough to visit w her hubby. Pasta is almost always coordinated within meals. Thank you for your post!

    • Jayme February 17, 2019, 3:19 pm

      Allergies are the worst! I’m lucky not have picky eaters, but we do have some kids with food sensitivities that we’re trying to work around. It’s hard!

    Wonderful resources!! The hardest part of losing weight, for me, is menu planning.
    I appreciate this so much. I’d love to see a menu with daily lunch and snacks & desserts included on it.

      I’m glad this meal plan is helpful for you and thank you for the suggestions!

    Love these recipes and the idea but would be really helpful to have a shopping list – maybe split weekly or biweekly? I am planning on getting your book too!
