Healthy Meal Plans: Week 8

Don't miss out on this week's delicious healthy, low carb, and vegetarian meal plan packed with easy and family friendly recipes with nutritional info, myWW Points, shopping lists, and more.

This week is all about member requests! I love using inspiration from member's to build the meal plans and this week we had requests for easy vegetarian pasta, Banh Mi Pork, and easy sheet pan meals. You'll see all of those this week alongside other yummy recipes you and your family will love. Have a suggestion? Send it my way!

Now let's talk about the food! This week starts out with one of a reader request - Slow Cooker Banh Mi Pork. Monday night brings One Pot Spinach and Tomato Pasta. Tuesday brings Mexican Picadillo and Wednesday is Sheet Pan Italian Chicken and Vegetables. To end the week, enjoy Sweet and Spicy Pork, Garlic Lemon Baked Cod, and Bang Bang Chicken.

  • Meal Prep: A little work on Sunday goes a long way to make meals faster during the week. You can prep the Picadillo, baked potatoes, coleslaw, and quinoa. Plus you can prep all your veggies.
  • Cooking Tip: There are a couple spicy dishes this week, but it is easy to adapt them to your preferences. Leave the jalapeno out of the Banh Mi (or leave it whole for less spice), serve the chipotle peppers on the side for the Picadillo, and use only sweet chili sauce in the Bang Bang Chicken, which is more sweet than spicy.
  • Love leftovers: Double up the Banh Mi Pork, Picadillo, and Strawberry Oat Pancakes to store extras in the freezer.

Weight Watchers! We are excited to share a new feature that allows you to choose between Green, Blue, and Purple Smartpoints! Then you will get a customized plan for that plan! You can switch between plans at any point - it's all included with your membership.

And here's a preview of some of this week's delicious meals!

Sheet Pan Italian Chicken and Vegetables: This twenty minute sheet pan chicken dish will quickly become a favorite packed with tender chicken and vegetables roasted in olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and Italian spices.

Mexican Picadillo: These slightly spicy Mexican version of picadillo has lean ground beef cooked with diced potatoes, carrots, and onions in a chipotle tomato sauce. It's a dish that's hard to stop eating.

Slow Cooker Banh Mi Pork: This healthy spin on banh mi is easy to make, made with lean pork tenderloin, and has the sweet and savory flavors you expect in banh mi. Serve it with rice or make Asian inspired tacos.
