Here’s my Weight Watchers Weekly Meal Plan for my first week of meal planning! Includes links to delicious recipes and Smart Point values.
Okay so first things first. I plateaued. Or just kind of stalled. We’ve all been there, right?
But I decided I didn’t want to end the year on a sour note and signed up for Weight Watchers. My portions were out of control and I was eating entirely too many sweets.
With Weight Watchers, I’m given a bit more flexibility but I truly need to plan out what we’re eating or else I will get off course and inevitably fail. Just being brutally honest.

Why Meal Plan?
Meal Planning has so many benefits. I find that when I stick to a list I only buy exactly what we need for meals that week as opposed to just picking up whatever I can get my hands on and wondering every night what we’re going to make.
It’s also great to meal plan so you don’t set yourself up for a late night food binge or not have enough healthy food in the house.
To me, meal planning is basically making cooking food throughout the week a bit easier on us all. You can portion out snacks or chop your ingredients up ahead of time to save even more time before cooking your food. Another great idea is to make freezer meals which are basically fully prepped meals that just need to be reheated.
I love to make ahead breakfast and lunches for the week. My husband typically takes leftovers for lunch leaving me to fend for myself at home with two kids who could live off of bread and cheese.
Weight Watchers Weekly Meal Plan #1
For my weekly Weight Watchers menu, I’ll let you know what I am planning on for the week as well as their points. Mix and match for your own menu!
Breakfast is usually pretty simple for me. It’s gotta be something filling and it’s gotta be fast. I love making hard boiled eggs ahead of time to eat throughout the week. This week I am making a baked omelet that I will freeze into portions and heat up throughout the week.
Here are my Weight Watchers Breakfast options for the week:
Ah, lunch. I’m from Philly so I just love sandwiches. I could eat sandwiches all day long but because I’m trying to do better sandwiches aren’t going to be a part of every meal. But lunch. Lunch is sandwich o’clock.
I’ll make a big batch of chicken salad for the week because it’s LOW on the points. We have a SmartOnes few freezer meals if I get bored, but I do like to make my food to limit my salt. My husband usually takes leftovers to work for lunch but if there are some leftover I tend to eat that or make it into a salad or sandwich.
Again, I’m also looking for quick. I don’t like spending too much time in the kitchen during the day with two kids. They’ll start yelling and fighting with each other if they don’t feel my eyes on them every 10 seconds.
Here are my favorite Weight Watchers Lunch options for this week.
Dinner time. Now it’s time to do battle with my son over food he’s probably not going to eat anyway but nevertheless we persist. We have tacos weekly because it’s something my son will always eat and it’s something we can turn into a taco salad the next day.
- Keto Mississippi Roast with Broccoli (10 pts)
- Shrimp Scampi (8 pts)
- Spicy Beef Tacos (7 pts) – we add spice on our individual tacos to keep it kid friendly
- Lasagna Pasta (12 pts)
- Chicken Fried Rice (7 pts)
- Meatloaf with a veggie medley side (6 pts)
- Pizza with 2 Ingredient Pizza Dough (6 pts)
I’ve got a sweet tooth so I have been eating a lot of Honeycrisp apples. I try to stick to low point snack options like hard boiled eggs or a small salad because I am a big snacker. Emerald 100 calorie nuts are 3 SmartPoints if you like a little salty snack. They’re also great for your desk.
