Menu Plan Monday 10/19-10/25

Mr.Pate and I started Weight Watchers again last week (we did it for about 6 months before we got married and lost quite abit). So I am trying hard to memorize how many points everything is worth etc., which can get quite exhausting. I was in total denial about just how badly we were eating! And I want to mention that I only get 18 points a day, while Mr. Pate gets 36 (thats right, double how much I get)!!! Ugh!! And it may not help that we are not eating at home much this week... here's for hoping!

  • Breakfasts: Broc-Cheddar Mini-Frittatas, Cereal, Fruit
  • Lunches: Sandwiches, veggies and fruit (ps. we love the sandwich thins I mentioned last week), leftovers one day
  • Dinners:
Monday- Going out to eat with my fam for my Dad's bday

Tuesday- Salsa Chicken

Wednesday- Dinner at Dustin's

Thursday- Eating at a church members house (i think its pizza, yikes!)

Friday- take our own Turkey Dogs to North Warren's Fall Fellowship

Saturday- leftovers before heading to Pumpkin Carving!!

Broc-Cheddar Mini-Frittatas
1 Cup chopped steamed broccoli
2 cups egg substitute (or egg whites)
2 oz low fat cheddar cheese, finely shredded

1. Preheat oven to 350℉. Lightly spray 8 cups in muffin tin.
2. Divide broc evenly among the cups (2 tbls each).
3. Divide the egg substitute evenly among the cups (1/4 cup in each).
4. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes, or until almost set.
5. Sprinkle the cheese over the tops. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes longer, or until the egg is no longer runny and the cheese is melted.
6. Transfer to a cooling rack and allow to set for 2 minutes before serving.
Makes 4 (2-frittata) servings.

Salsa Chicken

4 chicken breasts

1 pkg reduced sodium taco seasoning mix

2 cup salsa

2 tablespoons cornstarch

¼ cup fat free sour cream

1. Spray the crock pot with cooking spray. Add the chicken and sprinkle with taco seasoning.

2. Top with salsa. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.

3. When ready to serve, remove the chicken from the pot.

4. Place the cornstarch in a small amount of water and stir well.

5. Stir the cornstarch mixture into salsa sauce. Stir in ¼ cup of sour cream then add chicken back in.

** I serve over shredded lettuce like taco salad, with tomatoes and shredded cheese etc.

As always, head over to Org Junkie for more ideas!
