Trying Weight Watchers? Here's a Full Week of Meals to Get You Started
When you start a new diet or healthy lifestyle, it can be so hard to figure out exactly what to eat day in and day out. And if you're anything like me, you can also fall into a rut of eating the same thing every day — once I've figured out the nutritional information for a dish, it's easier to keep eating it than to spend time researching something new.
Fortunately, when it comes to Weight Watchers, you can easily use the app to scan the barcode of a package to get the SmartPoints value. There's also the handy rule of thumb that fruits and vegetables are 0 SmartPoints. Over time you'll learn the SmartPoints values of foods you eat again and again and be able to rack up your daily totals in your head. Until then, we've put together a week of meals and snacks to get you started.
Using a daily SmartPoints base of 25, this meal plan includes three meals and a snack for seven days. You can find all the recipes you'll need here, and if your SmartPoints daily base is less or more than 25, there's a little wiggle room each day to add an extra snack or take something out.
