Menu planning?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have good recipes that are healthy yet easy? I am trying to be good and watch what I eat but I am a horrible cook and lets face it, also very lazy! I went to the foodnetwork website and quite frankly, it scared me. I would like to plan a week at a time so all my shopping is done and I can prep on the weekend.

Have you checked out WW recepies? They are simple and most of them are super good! You can get a lot of them just from googling Weight Watchers Recepies.

 

I have 4 of their cook books and love them! I'm not the best cook, so I like the fact that there aren't tons of ingredients and that it's simple. I would post some for you, but we just moved and my WW cook books are in transit. But one of my favs is the cheese lasagna, and the baked ziti. Also they have a GREAT and easy parmesan chicken that we make all the time. Oh, and there is a margarita chicken that's good and easy as well.

Thanks Tara! I just googled weight watchers recipes and found several I want to try after I drag my butt to the grocery store to get ingredients = )

 

Here is one I found that I definitely want to try because I LOVE pizza!

 

Deep-Dish Pizza Casserole

 

Recipe By : Cooking Light

 

6 Points per serving

 

 

 

1 pound ground round

 

1 15-oz can chunky Italian-style tomato sauce

 

cooking spray

 

1 10-oz can refrigerated pizza crust dough

 

6 1-oz slices part-skim mozzarella cheese -- divided

 

 

 

Cook meat in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned, stirring until it crumbles. Drain, if necessary and return to skillet. Add tomato sauce, and cook until heated. While meat cooks, coat a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Unroll pizza crust dough, and press into bottom and halfway up sides of baking dish. Line bottom of pizza crust with 3 slices mozzarella cheese. Top with meat mixture. Bake, uncovered at 425º for 12 minutes. Top with remaining 3 cheese slices, and bake 5 additional minutes or until crust is browned and cheese melts. Cool 5 minutes before serving.

 

Servings: 6

 

NOTES: I add spinach, red peppers, and mushrooms to this reciepe and everyone loves it and half of them do not even know it is a weight watchers recipe!-Shared by: Leigh Ann

This is my FI favorite and it also is a WW recipe. It's quick and easy to make.

 

 

CHICKEN POT PIE

 

1 cup reduced fat Bisquick

1/2 cup skim milk

1/4 cup egg substitute

2 cups frozen mixed veggies, thawed (you can also used canned)

2 cups cooked, chopped white chicken meat

2 cans Campbells fat free (Healthy Request)

Cream of Mushroom soup

 

Preheat oven to 400 º. Spray a casserole dish (at least 2 inches deep. I use an 8x8 pan) with Pam.

 

Mix together veggies, chicken and soup. Pour into casserole dish. In another bowl, mix bisquick, milk, and egg. Pour over the top of chicken mixture in the casserole.

Bake for about 30 min or until crust is golden.

 

6 servings = 4.5 pt per serving

4 servings = 6.5 pt per serving
