After doing so much meal prep last weekend, it was great to take this weekend off. I didn’t prep anything, and I’m still set for the week thanks to items in my freezer and a friend sharing some meals with me. (I shared some with her the past couple weeks, so she’s returning the favor this week – yay!)

BREAKFAST: The overnight oatmeals, spinach feta egg muffins, and canadian bacon egg white breakfast sandwiches were made in advance and frozen. The Hungry Girl oatmeal is a recipe from the Hungry Girl Diet book. A friend is making a big batch and sharing. 🙂
LUNCH: The Italian Pasta Mason Jar salad is from last week. I’m hoping it’s still good! The Four Cheese Wonton Lasagna is leftovers from Sunday night’s dinner (recipe coming soon). The Fajita and Chinese Chicken Salads are being made in advance for the week. My friend Laurie is also making these salads for me. The Turkey Tomato bisque was made in advance and frozen. The side salads will be made Monday night and stored in pint-size mason jars to keep them fresh.
DINNER: All of our dinners are cooked just before we eat, but I have lots of components of the meals finished already. The smoky maple salmon and veggies were purchased already frozen. The couscous was made in advance and frozen. I have taco meat, stir fry meal kits, bread (for grilled cheese), and italian meat (for pizzas) already in the freezer! We don’t know our mother’s day plans yet, so I just threw in a large number.
SNACKS: As usual, I’m having bananas and apples/string cheese for my day time snacks. My evening snacks are mostly desserts with a couple nights of chips thrown in. My evening snacks tend to me more like my “treat” than a nutritional need.
|Day||Points+ Used||Weekly Points+ Used|
My plan this week has me using 28 of my weekly points+ allowance. This leaves me with 21 weekly points for last minute changes/additions/splurges and for use on Monday/Tuesday of next week. (My weekly points run Wednesday through Tuesday since I weigh in on Tuesday nights.)
