Staying on track was always easier when I turned to soup ( just watch the sodium if you are using canned) ESP good in winter , it can be a hearty lunch or stand in for supper when paired with salad or healthy sandwich /fruitbowl dessert!
Years ago I went to WW (Before the points PLUS) and they just basically had you make your own soup from veggies you like, low sodium LITE chicken broth and some canned tomato and spices ( DELISH!) You could make a lge pot for a few days or freeze some.
If you're not inspired, there are lots of smart, healthy choices nowadays and the beaity is that they are always there in a pinch .. an EZ " go to " food with chicken or turkey on LITE WW bread ( No mayo!) . ( Just skip crackers or white bread and you'll be fine!)
Not only do you save money by eating beans in place of meat sometimes, but using dried beans will save over using canned beans. It is nearly 2.5 times cheaper on average per serving to use dried beans.
Plan ahead a little. Soak the beans overnight (black beans don't need to be soaked) and then they can be cooked on low in a crockpot for 6-8 hours the next day. Any left overs can be frozen. Sooooooo much cheaper and easy enough to do with just a little planning!
