Weight Watchers Weekly Meal Plan (May 27 – Jun 2)

Weight Watchers Meal Plan Ideas

Welcome to a week of simple and delicious health-conscious dining with our latest WeightWatchers-friendly meal plan.

Every Friday, I send out an email outlining my dinner plans for the upcoming week that are compatible with Weight Watchers, and I also publish them on my blog. This practice helps me stay on track with my meal choices and motivates me to make healthier food decisions.

Additionally, by sharing my weekly dinner plans, I hope to provide a useful reference for individuals searching for meal planning ideas or looking to vary their diet. If you’re looking for more inspiration, you might find the “101 Meal Prep Ideas from Successful Weight Watchers” resource helpful.

The Benefits of Weekly Meal Planning

Planning and preparing your meals ahead of time provides tons of benefits to anyone wanting to eat better and lose weight, including WeightWatchers members:

Reduced Impulse Eating: Knowing what you’ll cook and eat in advance helps reduce impulsive decisions and unhealthy food choices, such as hitting the drive-thru or ordering takeout. This can be particularly helpful when faced with busy schedules or stressful situations that may otherwise lead to less mindful eating.
Time and Money Savings: Planning meals in advance can save time and money by minimizing last-minute grocery runs and reducing the reliance on takeout or restaurant meals. It also helps in buying ingredients in bulk and utilizing them efficiently throughout the week.
Stress Reduction: Knowing what you’ll eat throughout the week eliminates the stress of figuring out meals on a daily basis. This can be particularly beneficial for those with busy schedules, reducing decision fatigue and making healthier choices more doable.
Balanced Nutrition: Meal planning enables you to create well-balanced meals that include a variety of nutrient-dense foods. This ensures that you get a good mix of proteins, carbohydrates, healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals necessary for overall health and weight loss.
Smart Food Choices: With a plan in place, you can make informed and healthier food choices. It allows you to incorporate a diverse range of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains, minimizing the temptation to opt for less nutritious, convenience foods.
Portion Control: Planning meals in advance allows you to consider portion sizes, which is crucial for weight management. It helps avoid overeating and ensures that you consume the appropriate amount of food to stay within your daily calorie or point limits.
Consistent Progress: Having a weekly meal plan helps to build consistent healthy eating habits. Consistency is key to achieving and maintaining weight loss goals, as it establishes a routine that supports healthier choices over time.
Variety and Creativity: Planning meals in advance allows you to introduce variety into your diet and get creative with different recipes. This can make the process of eating healthily more enjoyable and sustainable over the long term.

For those following Weight Watchers, meal planning is especially beneficial as it helps align meals with the program’s points system and encourages a thoughtful approach to food choices. Overall, weekly meal planning is a powerful tool for anyone aiming to adopt healthier eating habits, manage weight, and promote overall well-being.

Every time I get out of the meal planning habit and resort to take-out, restaurants, and snacking on junk, it’s amazing how crappy I feel and how quickly the pounds pack on.

The Key to Eating Well is Cooking

When you’re trying to eat well, not cooking isn’t an option. At least for me anyway. There are just too many unknowns (hidden sugar, flour, fats, chemicals, points), too many temptations, and portions are way too large for you to routinely eat well on take-out or pre-made food.

The Key to Consistent Cooking is Planning

In the beginning meal planning can be a huge chore. The key is finding an approach that works for you over the long haul. If you are struggling with meal planning here are 3 great meal planning resources to help:

This Week’s WW Meal Plan Suggestions with WW Points:

What Do I Eat for Breakfast on WW?

Most days my breakfast is something quick like an english muffin with almond butter, avocado toast, cottage cheese with fruit, eggs, yogurt with fruit, oatmeal or a smoothie, depending on my mood and the season.

What Do I Eat for Lunch on WW?

Lunch is usually leftovers or some combination of soup / sandwich / salad.

This week I am planning to make…

I’m only going to cook four times this week because these recipes will provide lots of leftovers additional quick and easy lunches and dinners. I will also freeze some of the Bolognese sauce. 

Slow Cooker Turkey Bolognese Sauce

Slow Cooker Turkey Bolognese Sauce
I love the ease of this recipe. It takes a little time to cook the vegetables and meat, but then you just dump it into the slow cooker and let is simmer away until dinner time. I’ll serve it with pasta or zucchini noodles and salad

Easy 5 Ingredient Minestrone Soup

Easy 5-Ingredient Asparagus Minestrone
Talk about simple and delicious. Just toss all the ingredients together in a large saucepan and let simmer until tender, about 10 minutes. So easy and satisfying. I love to make this when asparagus is in season.

Easy Glazed Salmon

Easy Glazed Salmon
This easy healthy and delicious 5-ingredient glazed salmon, perfect for Weight Watchers, comes from the talented southern healthy Trim & Terrific Cookbook author, Holly Clegg. It’s a winner, both for how easy it is to make, and delicious it is to eat. Even people who say they don’t like salmon like this recipe. I will serve skinny mashed potatoes and roasted carrots alongside.

Skinny Impossibly Easy Chicken Broccoli Pie

Skinny Bisquick Impossibly Easy Chicken and Broccoli Pie
This chicken and cheddar broccoli pie really is impossibly easy to make, especially if you have leftover cooked chopped chicken in the freezer, which I often do. You can even make your own healthy baking mix to use as a Bisquick replacement if you want. I’ll plan to serve this with roasted carrots or this simple and delicious shredded carrot salad.

Made your lasagna soup last week!!! Yum!

I am so thankful I found your website and continue to try new things. I started WW March 2020 (online only) and have lost almost 30 lbs. and am at my goal! Slow and steady wins the race!!! (Just like the tortoise and the hare).

Thank you for all your encouraging emails and wonderful recipes. We’ve been married almost 47 years. When I first found “my friend Martha” as all my friends know you by, my husband said “you’ve always been a good cook but we never tried so many different things!” He loves your recipes also!!!

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!!!!! ~ Joyce

I bought the Table for Two eCookbook and I love it! It saved me from giving up on my weight loss journey. The meals are delicious and so easy to cook. Having a weekly grocery list, recipes and instructions with pictures readily accessible has taken so much stress off of me in meal planning. I was tired of cooking recipes that had multiple servings and eating the left overs several times during the week. My husband loves the Table for Two recipes and he doesn’t even need to lose weight! I have recommended your site to several friends on the same journey and they love your recipes too. Thank you for all your hard work in making meal planning so easy! ~ Barbara
