In our house, about 99% of the meals we make are vegetarian. I’d say that we’ve been eating mostly vegetarian for about a year now. There are many reasons that we started eating this way and it may not always be the case, but right now it is what is working for us.
Since I haven’t seen as many Vegetarian focused Weight Watchers menus, I thought I would share what we have been eating.
For breakfast we typically make some variation of an egg scramble – eggs with lots of veggies such as spinach, sweet potatoes, and peppers. All of these are zero point foods for us – we are part of the purple plan. Another great breakfast option is Fage 0% Greek Yogurt with fresh berries. This was something that we had been eating before signing up for Weight Watchers – though we were typically adding granola to it – which we no longer do. That’s one of the great things about Weight Watchers is that not much has changed for us in terms the foods that we are eating – we are just staring to see them differently.
For lunches, I typically have a protein shake or a quinoa salad, depending on the day. Eric has been making tofu and vegetables, finishing up the Beyond Burgers and Sausages that we had in the fridge (which have a more points that we’d like- but aren’t terrible – especially since he has more points that I do).
Here’s a list of what we made for dinner this week. Our weight watchers week runs Friday to Thursday, with our check-ins on Friday mornings.
Friday – Weight Watchers Vegetarian Chili
Saturday – Chickpea and Spinach Stew
Monday – Tofu Stir-fry with Peanut Sauce
Wednesday – Poblano and Onion-Stuffed Baked Potatoes
We enjoyed every single one of these dinners! Full disclosure – we didn’t have many leftovers as we gobbled it all up!
