Weekly Meal Plan ~ 04/20/15

In Weekly Meal Plans by Tanya2 Comments


I didn’t stick to my plan 100% last week, but it was still helpful to have it available!  It allows me to quickly and easily see how many points I have budgeted for each meal.  It’s also easier to swap meals around once they are planned because (in theory) I should already have everything on hand that’s on my weekly plan.

Weekly Meal Plan 042015


BREAKFAST:
The canadian bacon/egg white breakfast sandwiches and banana oat muffins were made a couple weeks ago and frozen.  The salted caramel oatmeal was made over the weekend and frozen.  The spinach feta egg muffins will be made on Tuesday or Wednesday evening, some for this week and some for the freezer.  The cranberry almond oatmeal is a homemade oatmeal packet that was made months ago.

LUNCH: The sloppy joe meatloaf (new recipe) was made on the weekend. I kept one serving out for lunch and froze the rest.  The pork chop was baked for dinner Monday night, so I baked an extra one for lunch.  The turkey and tuna sandwiches will be made up the night before.  The side salads will be made Monday night and stored in mason jars to keep them fresh.

DINNER:  Pretty much all of our dinners will be made just before we eat this week, but I do have components of our meals prepped already!  The pork chops and bruschetta chicken were purchased already frozen.  The mashed sweet potatoes were frozen in individual portions in advance  The chicken stir fry is from a meal kit that was already in the freezer.  

SNACKS: I am keeping the evening snacks (treats) simple.  As usual, I’m have fruit and string cheese for snacks during the day.  

Daily Points+ Usage

Day Points+ Used Weekly Points+ Used
Monday 27 1
Tuesday 28 2
Wednesday 29 3
Thursday 26 0
Friday 31 5
Saturday 30 4
Sunday 30 4
TOTAL (Wednesday-Sunday): 16

My plan this week has me using 16 of my weekly points+ allowance.  This leaves me with 33 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.)  That seems pretty good to me considering I have planned to have Chipotle and pizza!  I just adjust my other meals accordingly.  It’s kinda fun for me to see that I absolutely CAN still have these types of things and not go over my weekly points budget!   😉
