Today for lunch I made a big pot of Taco Soup--modified to have all the things I like, and none of the ones I don't.
I also made some Chinese Slaw and the Want More Salad from the WW Recipe forum on this board. They are both yummy. I had the Want More for lunch, with the soup, and will let the Slaw sit til tomorrow or Tuesday.
I'm most guilty of having frozen dinners, or finding what I can get from a fast food joint for the balance of my points for supper.
I'm new to the WW system--joined last week--so we'll find out tomorrow how I've been doing.
I buy ground turkey, and make chili w/it. I use Hunts tomatoes for chili, Chili Magic beans, lots of chili powder, and a little cayenne. I put it on a bed of whole wheat macaroni w/a cheddar flavored piece of soy cheese on top. Very filling. It makes a lot, so I freeze some servings like that. They turn out fine later.
For lunches I like soup. I took some veggie gumbo out of the freezer today, I'll have it w/crackers & a piece of fruit for lunch tomorrow.
Either that, or I'll make my own "dinners"--Some sort of protein (a grilled fish fillet, half a chicken breast, 2 turkey cutlets, a small steak, or some shrimp) some kinda veggie & some brown rice or pasta. I cook, season, and then put them in a Gladware container & take it to work.
Dana, I like what you said awhile back about putting stuff on a bed of lettuce. Sometimes I'll do that w/shrimp, steak, or a can of albacore, only I like it on a bed of spinach leaves w/some mushrooms.

Yep.. everything goes on a bed of lettuce - get my veggies in and it looks like a lot more food I was finding that if made a "salad on the side" I was adding too much stuff like cheese or other high point items.
When I'm 'desparate' as in I didn't plan anything ... a can of low fat chicken or veggie broth and some frozen low cal veggies such as cauliflower or brocolli or green beans (or some of each) and a sliced carrot makes for a very filling soup. Add a few crackers and I'm full!

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it!!
you eat eggs every night jennifer! that's too cute. I eat eggs most mornings I love egg whites - this morning I had egg whites w/ onions on a toasted 1 point hamburger bun 2 points! then I added 3 slices of turkey bacon for another point. I swear i could be the spokes person for turkey bacon.
I have some pretty good low-fat supper ideas that I'll post later tonight or tomorrow when I have time to go through my recipe book. I've got WW Points plus nutritional info on all the recipes, too, which is nice.

Tonight I made chicken-broccoli stir-fry. Cook two chicken breasts in strips, then throw in a bag of frozen stir-fry mix and fry them.
Next, mix together and then add a can of low-salt chicken broth, 2 tbsp. soy sauce, 3/4 tsp. of ginger, 1 tsp. garlic powder and 2 tbsp. corn starch. I serve it on rice, very yummy!
Last night I made chicken in the slow cooker - so easy.
4 chicken breasts (took them right out of the freezer) 1 can of cream of mushroom (ff) and 1 can of cream of celery (ff).
Cooked all day - then added 1/2 cup of ff sour cream 10 minutes before serving over a bed of rice and green beans on the side.
Very yummy... I think I will add some carrots to the leftovers.
