Weekly Menu

Monday is a rest day, so I have no running-related things to report. I do, however, have a weekly meal plan to share with you. I’m still following the Simply Filling plan for Weight Watchers. On this plan, you eat from the power foods list and don’t have to count points, although you have 49 weekly points (+ activity points) to use for items not on that list. I like to use my points on cookies and chocolate 🙂

Breakfast each day will likely be oatmeal (1/2 cup dry old fashioned oats) with a chopped apple and a tablespoon of apple butter. So yummy!

Lunches are leftovers. There’s some wheat berry, beet & feta salad from Friday’s office potluck, and remains from the week’s dinners. I also made some homemade roasted red pepper chickpea dip—it’s kind of like hummus but no olive oil or tahini—to eat with raw carrots. Snack is usually some plain yogurt with fruit or jam.

Dinners are the fun part!
Sunday: Spinach & chickpea stew with brown rice
Monday: Green salad with roasted beets & feta, whole wheat pasta with tomato basil sauce
Tuesday: Taco potatoes! I’m baking potatoes in the slow cooker for the first time. Also: refried beans
Wednesday: KFC crockpot chicken, sautéed mushrooms, roasted butternut squash
Thursday: Freezer burritos (I made these a few months ago) with fiesta rice
Friday: Pasta with chicken and roasted yellow tomato sauce.

Are there any particularly tasty, healthy meals on your menu this week?

  1. I love meal planning! My favorite thing lately is buffalo chicken lettuce wraps. I use a little bit of buffalo wild wings mild sauce and cook the chicken in the crockpot, then shred it up. I eat mine just the chicken in the lettuce wrap and Hubs adds a little bleu cheese dresisng to his. YUM!

  2. How did your baked potatoes made in the slow cooker turn out? My mom does that in her Nesco roaster for large crowds. I’m not really into potatoes, but I think my husband might like that. Do you make taco meat with all the fixings on top of the baked potatoes?

    And I see from a previous menu plan that you made a chia pudding, how was it?
