Menu Plan Monday 2104 ~ Week of July 28th

Last week, I didn't pay much mind to my menu plan or my diet and a 1.4 lb weight gain was the result.  I really need to work on following a plan this week.  Not just for the sake of my diet, but for our budget as well.  The meals I planned this week are all Simply Filling friendly if I allow myself to use a few indulgence points here and there.  If you're following the Weight Watchers Simply Filling program all of that will make sense.  If not, no worries.  You will still enjoy the meals I planned for this week!  


One Pan Mexican Quinoa
I have recently jumped on the quinoa band wagon and I am so glad I did!
I'm really enjoying it!  So far, I've made and Enchilada Casserole with Black Beans and Quinoa that I really loved!  I've also added it to some grilled veggies on a wrap for a light, but filling, lunch!
I can't wait to try this recipe since the quinoa cooks right in the same pot as the rest of the meal!  


Hot Dogs and baked potatoes
Reduced Fat hot dogs make it possible to enjoy this simple summer dinner
without causing damage to my diet!
Normally, I'd serve baked beans with the grilled hot dogs,
but all of that brown sugar and syrup would be a diet killer for sure
since I know that I couldn't be trusted to eat just one serving!  


Chicken Taco Salads
Tacos are the best thing for me to eat when I'm on a diet.
I love junk food and making taco meat using lean ground beef or diced chicken
is a great way to trick myself into thinking I am eating something bad!
I love keeping a big container of this Chicken Taco Filling in the fridge,
so I can eat from it all week.
Sometimes I splurge and allow myself a taco shell or two,
or I use a Simply Filling allowed wrap,
but most often, I just add a scoop of the taco meat to a bed of lettuce
with some fat free refried beans and fat free salsa!


Simply Filling Tuna Vegetable Pasta Salad
Corn on the cob
Grilled Veggies


Southwest Scramble 
I love breakfast for dinner!
Especially when it's this hearty and flavorful!  


Tilapia, baked potatoes, corn on the cob
