@LoggerHead91207:  I usually do a greek yogurt for breakfast, sometimes with an apple if I’m hungry.  I generally get the Chobani or Fage 0%fat yogurts with fruit… most are around 3 or 4 points.  The protein makes them filling enough to get me to lunch.  If my tummy growls, I’ll eat my apple.  

 

Good Luck! WW has helped me lose over 30 pounds!

try http://www.skinnytaste.com

Lots of great recipes and several of them are great for making in advance and eating throughout the week.

@LoggerHead91207:  FYI she lists all NI and points for each recipe on the site

thanks 🙂  Progresso soup also has some WW points on the labels, and so does SkinnyCow! You’ll get the hang of it quickly- especially if you have the phone app! 

For lunches I like to make a big pot of their chilli and portion it out (I think one serving is 5 points?) It’s really good!

Also, try emilybites.com. Her recipes are great. I think she is a poster on WB too.

I second the skinny taste website! i use a lot of her recipes and even treats (black bean brownies!)

i would def download the scanner app, you can scan food while you are at the store and it will tell you how many points per serving it is. I also have a chobani greek yogurt for breakfast with fruit, and a banana for a snack, for lunch, i make my self a salad (i would pick up a food scale, i’ve done ww before with out it but its helped me so much this time around! 2 oz of turkey is A LOT of turkey and only 1 point!) also i love cheese so i have to be good with weighing out 1 oz… once you start getting used to calculating points it will be easy to know what you can eat with out going for your phone. Just last night i was making dinner and i really wanted to snack on something, i picked up sweet cherry tomatos and seriously i can pop them like candy! and they are no points! for a salad before dinner i put all veggies and then a really good balsamic vineger (no oil) and no points! then i can eat my dinner and not be starving

also the ww icecream bars are pretty good too!

*i’ve lost 16 lbs on ww since november

Weight Watchers has a chicken and broccoli meal that is totally my absolute favorite meal, diet or no diet!  Delicious!  You will feel like you are cheating!  Do you have the phone app?  It’s called Garlicky Chicken and Broccoli.  It’s on the app if you do a search.  

Also, Snackios brand pita chips are good and low in points.  Look for them in the bread aisle.

I am not sure if this would fit your 5 point allotment, but what about pre-cooking on a weekend and freezing baked egg ‘cups’ in a muffin tray? You can just do eggwhites or whole eggs, mix some veggies in, maybe a bit of cheese. Then pop the individual egg cups into freezer bags and microwave one in the morning and eat with a side of fruit and your green tea/water. 

Or smoothies! That shouldn’t take more than 5 min to throw a bunch of fruit and some yogurt into a blender. 

EDIT: http://www.weightwatchers.com/util/art/index_art.aspx?tabnum=1&art_id=66711&sc=3022 just found this too. Some of these would take a bit of prep, but not too much!

Hi,

 

I just made my lifetime after over two years. I didn’t want to spend a lot of money and I don’t have a lot of time in the morning. Sometimes the recipes they suggest can get costly. I usually alloted around 5-7 points for breakfast. Usually a greek yogurt and a cup of multigrain cheerios or a high fibre cereal with some milk, and a coffee. Hard boiled eggs are another possibility. A great zero points lunch option is the garden vegetable soup.

Commenting to follow, as I’ll be joining in a couple of weeks!

I bought a package of Chobani 100’s and I believe they are just 2 points per container?  Someone please verify this…  Had one and a banana for breakfast then some hummus (1 point for 2 tbsp) and carrots as a snack and seriously was a little hungry, but not starving by lunch (and I get hungry so easily!)
