Turning Over A New Leaf/Menu Plan Monday

I love Weight Watchers but have been finding the extra steps of finding points for products, logging points and trying to figure out what the points for recipes are very difficult. I have always been successful at Weight Watchers losing 20 lbs each time I have gone. This time, I am fluctuating up and down, up and down. I decided to try to count my calories instead. I am loving the free Livestrong Daily Plate App for my Iphone to count my calories. That paired with an abundance of recipes that have nutritional information is making me have a lot more success. That being said, my menu plan reflects a lot of calorie friendly choices for this week.

Monday: Confetti Meatloaf 273 cal per serving, Roasted New Potatoes, Broccoli.
Tuesday: Ham and Spinach Couscous 248 cal per serving
Wednesday: Turkey, Ham and Cheese Stromboli 125 cals per slice, Salad. For the stromboli, I used Whole Wheat and Honey Dough instead. Guilt Free Brownies 140 cal per serving
Thursday: Roast Chicken and Slow Cooked Mac and Cheese 300 cal per serving
Friday: Fiesta Bake, Salad
Saturday: Leftovers...A Mom needs a break!! :)
Sunday: Turkey, Potato and Veggie.

Also making Southwestern three bean and barley soup...for which I am using my beloved pressure cooker to make the beans fast, fast, fast!!

Pin It!
