Menu Plan and Happy Birthday Mom & Esme!

Two of my few and faithful blog readers have a happy birthday today! Hope its a good one mom and cousin Esme!;)

I started Weight Watchers last week (just the online version because I am cheap and don't have the time/money to drive into town just for meetings) and it is...going. Occasionally I think I am going to die of starvation, but the unlimited fruits/veggies on the new plan help a TON. My body is still adjusting to the lack of carbs but heartburn and another issue are much better already because of the plan.

Breakfasts: cold cereal, oatmeal, toast, eggs, fruit

Lunch: leftovers, hot dogs (for the girls), soup, salad (for me)

Dinners:

Monday: Taco Soup

Tuesday: Baked Spaghetti for the fam and whole wheat spaghetti w/ marinara and veggies for me, salad, french bread

Wednesday: Stir fry w/ chicken over brown rice

Thursday: Grilled steak or pork chops w/baked potato and asparagus

Friday: Hot Dogs (grilled chicken for me), homemade fries, green beans

Saturday: Vegetable Quiche/Frittata

Sunday: Up in the air

Anyone have any favorite low points recipes to share?!

Hi Rachael.....there's a blog by Roni Noone called GreenLiteBites (www.greenlitebites.com) that is full of easy, healthy recipes with points values (new and old) that you might want to check out. Best of luck to you! ~Krista

Thanks for the birthday wishes!

I don't know about points, but I'm watching what I eat too and similarly can have unlimited veggies. Something I'm eating right now is asparagus and mushrooms fried in a little olive oil with salt and garlic powder.
