Weight Watchers Weekly Dinner Meal Plan Ideas (6/17 – 6/23)

Weight Watchers Meal Dinner Plan Ideas

Fridays, I send out an email outlining my dinner plans for the upcoming week that are designed to work Weight Watchers. 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.

My Approach to Meal Planning

Every time I get out of the meal planning habit I end up eating too much take-out, restaurant food, unhealthy snacks. It is amazing how crappy I feel and how quickly the pounds begin to creep back.

When I have a rough idea of what I’m planning to cook for dinner in the coming week I’m much less likely to succumb to the temptation of fast food or takeout.

That being said, my approach is a casual one. Meal planning can overwhelm me if I try to do too much. So I make it SUPER EASY. I keep a post-it note on the counter with a list of a few dinners I’m planning to make. That’s it.

We are a middle-aged couple so I am mostly cooking for just the two of us. We have a fairly active social life, which means our plans are always subject to change. (Read more about my thoughts on realistic meal planning for busy, unpredictable lives.)

Most recipes make more than we can eat, so we tend to have a ready supply of leftovers for lunch or dinner the next day. I enjoy finding creative ways to use and re-purpose leftovers.

I’m always asking myself, “How can I make this as easy as possible? For me meal planning works only when I keep it as simple as possible. When I have a ready supply of easy to prepare, good for me food in the fridge and pantry I’m set up for success.

What Do I Eat for Breakfast on Weight Watchers?

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 Weight Watchers?

Lunch is usually leftovers or some combination of soup / sandwich / salad. This formula is a proven winner for me. I never fall into the temptation of takeout when I have a jar of soup, bowl of hard boiled eggs, container or leftovers and/or salad fixings staring back at me when I open the fridge!

This Week’s WW Dinner Suggestions with Points

My crock pot takes front and center this week as I use it several times to make easy healthy dinners!

Slow Cooker Turkey Bolognese Spaghetti 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. It’s perfect for making on the weekend and enjoying again during the busy workweek. I most often serve it with a green salad.

CrockPot Corn Chowder

Easy CrockPot Corn Chowder – Packed with the wholesome goodness of diced potatoes, onions, cream-style corn, and fat-free evaporated milk, this recipe strikes the perfect balance between creamy and nutritious. Seasoned with just the right amount of savory spices and a touch of Worcestershire sauce, every spoonful will tickle your taste buds. It’s easy to make with the most basic of pantry ingredients. It manages to be rich, creamy and delicious and good for you while being very low in fat.

Crock Pot Cabbage Roll Casserole

Crock Pot Cabbage Roll Casserole – I’ve always loved cabbage rolls. But am way too lazy to make them. The solution? An easy-peasy slow cooker cabbage roll casserole that is also Weight Watchers friendly. You get all the flavors of cabbage rolls in this slow cooker cabbage casserole with a LOT less effort.

Easy English Muffin Tuna Melt

Light & Easy Tuna Melt – These open face tuna melt sandwiches serve two and make a nice light, simple lunch or supper. They are the perfect way to elevate your basic tuna sandwich into a sensational one.

Slice of Skinny No Bake Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake

Skinny No Bake Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake – I also plan to make this lighter dessert to enjoy and share!

I can’t tell you how thrilled we were with your menu posted this week! We are on vacation and in a condo for five weeks. Keeping meals simple. I made both the chicken broccoli pie and the broccoli cheese soup for the first time this week. Both were a big hit. Then last night we had your Caribbean Jerk Chicken which is a definite favorite. 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 pounds 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

Hi Martha – I cannot begin to thank you enough for my month of meals. We (my husband and I) have only had the first week, but WOW, what great meals! I can’t wait for the second week. You have a customer for life! ~ Sharon S.

I bought the 12 Week eCookbook and Meal Planner by Alisha Hughes from Meal Planning Mommies. It is great 12 weeks with a shopping list which is wonderful. I just make a copy of the list and go shopping for the week. ~ Roberta R.
