Menu Plan Monday


I didn't stick to last week's meal plan too closely, but it was nice to have a list to draw from.  This week I was asked to share my weight loss journey story at a Weight Watchers event.  As a thank you they gave me a new cookbook so I picked out some new recipes to try.  The book is called, Turn up the Flavor.  It's the newest cookbook and goes along with the new 360 program. At first I thought it was too fancy for me but after I went through it page by page I found quite a few recipes I want to try.

 I was allowed to choose any cookbook they had in the meeting room and this is what I picked.  I have no idea why it's listed at $39.99 on Amazon. It is only $15 on the shelf.  You can go into any Weight Watchers store and buy one (even if you aren't a Weight Watchers member.)

The recipes with an asterisk are from the new cookbook.

I'm visiting from Menu Plan Monday--your zucchini & spinach lasagna sounds really good. I have a hard time doing non-meat lasagna because my husband complains. We already eat vegetarian two nights a week, wish we could do more!

I am lucky that my husband LOVES vegetables and actually prefers vegetarian meals. (I like meat though. :) ) In particular he loves veggie lasagna.

Great menu this week! I have minestrone on my menu this week as well. Perfect time of year for it. Thanks for sharing

I would love to try that Minestrone recipe. Sounds like a great cookbook. Just goes to show that because something is healthy doesn't mean it doesn't taste good.
