WW Friendly Meal Planning Ideas

Every Friday I send out an email with what I’m planning to eat for dinner in the coming week which I also archive here on the blog. It helps keep me accountable and I hope you find it helpful as well.

The Benefits of Weekly Meal Planning

Getting dinner on the table is so much easier when you’ve planned what you’re cooking and eating ahead of time and done the grocery shopping. It’s the only thing that prevents me from resorting to fast food or takeout more often than I should.

Every time I get out of the meal planning habit and resort to take-out, restaurants, and snacking on junk, it’s amazing how crappy I feel and how quickly the pounds pack on.

The Key to Eating Well is Cooking

When you’re trying to eat well, not cooking isn’t an option. There are just too many unknowns (hidden sugar, flour, fats, chemicals, points), too many temptations, and portions are way too large for you to routinely eat well on take-out or pre-made food.

The Key to Consistent Cooking is Planning

In the beginning meal planning can be a huge chore. The key is finding an approach that works for you over the long haul. If you are struggling with meal planning here are 3 great meal planning resources to help:

This Week’s WW Meal Plan Suggestions with WW Points:

What Do I Eat for Breakfast on WW?

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 WW?

Lunch is usually leftovers or some combination of soup / sandwich / salad.


This week I am planning to make…

Rotisserie Chicken Breast with Sweet Potato and Green Beans. I love the convenience of rotisserie chickens. While sometimes I make “rotisserie chicken” in the crockpot, more often than not I buy them at the grocery store.

Two chicken enchilada tacos on blue plate.

Easy Healthy Enchilada Chicken Tacos (using leftover rotisserie chicken) and Roasted Carrots make a perfect meal for “Taco Tuesday.”

CrockPot Creamy Cauliflower Potato Soup topped with croutons and olive oil drizzle.

Creamy Cauliflower and Potato Soup with Mixed Green Salad and Crusty Bread. I love soup for lunch and or a light supper. It’s nutritious, comforting, and best of all, you can reheat it in just a few minutes. Perfect to enjoy leftover on busy weeknights.

Easy 4-Ingredient Taco Cauliflower Rice in skillet with serving spoon.

Easy Taco Cauliflower Rice Skillet and Mixed Green Salad. With just 4 ingredients, this quick and easy skillet is a longtime favorite.

Salad with chicken, Corn, Black Beans drizzled with BBQ Sauce and Ranch Dressing

Easy BBQ Ranch Chicken Salad (Using leftover rotisserie chicken)

Customer Testimonials

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 have been using Slender Kitchen Meal Plans (affiliate link) (affiliate link) since last year and we love it! Even more excited now that it has the new points. The recipes are easy, family friendly, and taste good. I love that I can customize for our family and the shopping list saves me so much time and money. One of my best purchases last year.
~ Camille

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.
