WW Weekly Recipe RoundUp and Meal Plan (11/16/19) • Simple Nourished Living

Welcome to my Weight Watchers Friendly Weekly Recipe and Link Roundup

Encouragement and inspiration are critical whenever you’re trying to change your habits. This is especially true when the habits involve eating better, losing weight and creating a healthy balanced lifestyle.

WW Weekly Recipe & Link Roundup

Sticking with the slow and steady sensible balanced approach to lasting change can seem dull and out of step when everywhere you look people seem to be swinging between overindulgent excess and extreme deprivation based diets.

My mission is to provide you with a constant supply of motivating articles and Easy Healthy WW friendly recipes to encourage your pursuit of a happy, healthy, balanced life.

Here’s what I’ve got for you this week…

WW Weekly Topic: Learn About new myWW Program & Plan Choices

WW launched its myWW Program this week. For the first time you can choose from 3 different plans: Green, Blue, Purple, based on your preferences and lifestyle. So meetings this week are focused on introducing details of the changes. If you are having success with WW Freestyle, the myWW Blue Option is exactly the same.

Meal Planning: On My Menu Next Week

After years of trial and error, I discovered that mapping out a rough outline of meals for the coming week is one of the most important things I can do for an easier, less stressful, more successful week.

Meal Planning makes staying on track with my healthy eating/weight management goals so MUCH EASIER. Once I have a plan I shop and do a meal prep on the weekend saving time and money all week long..

Weekly Weight Loss Devotional

I love devotionals. I’ve been reading them daily for years and recently felt the call to begin sharing a weekly devotional specific to weight loss with you here.

Reading the same devotional over and over every day for at least a week, until I have it committed to memory is powerful. The positive words soak into every part of my being refreshing me and giving me strength. This week’s topic: Courage & Connection

WW Food Finds This Week

While attending myWW workshop Sunday, I decided to test out a few of their new foods. As a pumpkin spice lover, this WW Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal was a natural choice. I liked the short ingredient list free of artificial sweeteners and 7g of protein for 3 SmartPoints (Green, Blue, Purple). Many of the instant oatmeals I’ve considered in the grocery store have considerably more SmartPoints. 

I like the flavor, didn’t mind the taste of stevia, but thought the portion was a little skimpy. I bulked it up with a microwaved chopped apple to which I added cinnamon and Truvia (affiliate link). This 3 SmartPoints breakfast kept me satisfied until a late lunch. If you don’t have access to a WW Studio near you, you can shop for their products online
