WEIGHT WATCHERS 30 SMARTPOINTS SAMPLE EASY NO COOK MENU
Perfect for when you are short on time or not in the mood to cook.
What 30 SmartPoints-a-Day Looks Like (no-cook meal ideas)
Breakfast: Yogurt with Fruit & Granola (5SP) – 1 cup plain Greek Nonfat yogurt (3SP), 1/2 cup fresh or frozen Blueberries (0SP) and 3 tablespoons low fat granola (2SP). Substitute whatever fruit you like best. Fresh, frozen or canned in juice will all work. And if plain Greek yogurt is too tart, add a little stevia or your prefer sweetener to taste. I like a drizzle of maple syrup for and additional 1-2 SmartPoints.
Here’s another yummy no-cook breakfast – Avocado Toast. Have you tried it? I’ve been pretty hooked on it lately. Need more ideas? Here are 14 Ways to Top Your Toast!
Oprah’s Favorite Breakfast: (Mine too!) Really good whole grain seed bread (2SP) smeared with avocado (1SP) and topped with sliced tomato (0SP) and a thin slice of smoked turkey (1SP) and sometimes a fried egg (2SP)
Snack: Egg &amp Cucumber Rounds (2SP) – slice 1 hard boiled egg (2SP). Place on top of slices of seedless English Cucumber (0SP) Season with Salt and Pepper or your favorite seasoning. Mrs. Dash or a little hot sauce would be good.
Lunch: Roast Beef Sandwich & Broccoli Slaw (7 SP) – Stir together 2 1/2 teaspoons reduced calorie mayo (1SP) and 1/2 teaspoon prepared horseradish (0SP). Spread onto 2 slices reduced calorie rye toast (2SP). Make a sandwich with 3 ounces deli sliced roast beef (2SP), lettuce (0SP), sliced tomato (0SP). Serve with a simple slaw made my combining 1cup packaged broccoli slaw mix, 1 sliced scallion, 2 teaspoons vinegar (0SP), 1 teaspoon olive oil (1SP) seasoned to taste with salt and pepper. Add a sliced dill pickle (0SP)
Snack: Cheesy Celery with Hot Sauce (1 SP) – Spread a stalk of celery (0SP) with 1 tablespoon light cream cheese (1SP) and drizzle with hot sauce.
Dinner: Melon (0SP) wrapped with Prosciutto (1 ounce – 3SP), Italian Chicken & Arugula Salad (5 SP) – 1 1/2 cups Arugula (0SP), 1 cup grape tomatoes (0SP), 9 large olives (1SP), sliced green onion (0SP), 3 ounces roasted sliced boneless skinless chicken breast (2SP), 2 tablespoons shredded parmesan (1SP) and 2 tablespoons reduced fat Italian dressing (1SP) and glass of wine (5 ounces for 4SP). Of course this salad can be made lots of different ways using the vegetables and protein you like best and/or have on hand. Use it as a template to create your own personal salad sensation.
Dessert: Peanut Butter & Strawberry Rice Cake (3 SP) – top a plain brown rice cake (1SP) with 2 teaspoons peanut butter (2SP) and sliced strawberries (0SP) If strawberries are not in season, top with season fruit of your choice. Right now sliced apples and pears would both be good.
