THE DETAILS:

Breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday are for 1 person, while dinner and all meals on Saturday and Sunday are for a family of 4. Some recipes have enough leftovers for two nights or lunch the next day. While we firmly believe that there is no one size fits all menu, we've done our best to develop something that would appeal to a wide range of people. Everything is Weight Watchers friendly. I've included the updated WW Blue SP for your convenience. You can swap out any recipes you want or just use them as inspiration!

The grocery list is comprehensive and contains everything you need to make all of the meals on the plan. I've even included brand recommendations for products that I love and use often. Check your cabinets as you will find that I use a lot of spices frequently so you may already have a lot of them.

And last but not least, this menu is flexible and realistic. There are much Wiggle room for cocktails, healthy snacks, dessert and dinner. And if necessary, there are a few things you can postpone to make it work with your schedule. Please let me know if you use these plans. This helps me decide whether to keep sharing them.
