After a really great experience preparing all of my meals ahead of time last week, I was really excited to do it again this week. My meal prep for this week started on Saturday when I created an outline of my meals. This step helps me to brainstorm meal ideas and to figure out how I am going to use all of my Weight Watchers Points each day.
Next I created a grocery list for my Sunday post-spin class grocery shopping trip.
With all of my groceries, my next step was to prepare my meals for the week ahead. This week I needed to do 4 things: Hard boil 10 eggs, assemble my Mason Jar salads, and cook the rice and turkey taco mixture for my dinners. Much like last week, I am planning on cooking my oatmeal for breakfast each morning and then gathering up my snacks for the work day when I put my mason jar salad in my lunch bag. Here’s a look at each of my meals for the week ahead…
Breakfast – 1/2 cup oats (4), 1 cup almond milk (1), 1 banana (0), 1 tbsp pecans (1), cinnamon (0), vanilla extract (0), and 1 packet of Spark (1) — 7PP total
Lunch – Mason Jar Asian Chicken Salads — 12PP total
Dinner – 1 cup of rice (8), 1/2 cup ground turkey taco mixture (1lb ground turkey, 2 scans diced tomatoes, 1 diced onion, and taco seasoning) (3), lettuce or cabbage (0), 2 tbsp light sour cream (1), Wholly guacamole (3), and salsa (0) — 15PP total
Snacks – Apple (0), Jif to Go (7), Yoplait Greek yogurt (2), eggs (4), cheese stick (2), dark chocolate (1), vanilla almond milk (4) — 20PP
Weekly Points Allowance (49PP) Ideas – Grapes (0), strawberries (0), Arctic Zero (1 for 1/4 pint or 3 for entire pint), Special K brownie (2), Quest Bar (5), Fiber One Cookie (3), and/or beer (5)
Here’s to a wonderful week.
