About 6 years ago, I worked at a large insurance company that was located in the middle of nowhere, and while my Visa appreciated the fact that I could no longer wander out to my favorite clothing stores on my lunch break (as I had been prone to do at my previous place of employment), my stomach wasn’t a huge fan of the cafeteria food. Everything looked like it was at least a month past its best before date, and since I was much too disorganized to pack my own lunch, I typically filled up on junk food like chips and gummy bears every afternoon.

Naturally, all of that unhealthy eating eventually caught up to my waistline, but it wasn’t until one of my co-workers made a commitment to lose weight and started experimenting with various Weight Watchers lunch recipes she found online that I finally found the motivation to get back on track with my own diet.

And you know what?

I was absolutely amazed at what a difference all of my hard work made.

By taking the time to pack a lunch to take to work, I found I was much more likely to take a proper break from my desk halfway through the workday, which went a long way in helping me connect with my co-workers and get a better handle on what my priorities were for the remainder of the day. And when I was conscious about only consuming wholesome, nutritious, and filling foods, I found I was much more efficient and productive.

And did I mention I also dropped an entire clothing size?

It was pretty amazing.


Of course, my life as a WAHM is much less structured than it was back then, and I’m the first to admit I’ve fallen back to my bad eating habits more times than I care to admit since becoming a mom. But after declaring 2016 the year that I begin making myself a priority so I can be a better version of myself for my daughter and husband, I started collecting different healthy recipes so that I can continue to enjoy a variety of different tastes while still ensuring I consume 3 well-balanced meals each day.

And while I’ve never actually tried out the Weight Watchers diet per se, I seem to be bursting at the seams with different Weight Watchers lunch recipes I can’t wait to try, and decided it was time to share the love.

From Macaroni and Cheese to Tuna Salad, and White Pizza to Pasta Salad, there’s a Weight Watchers lunch recipe (with points) here for everyone!

And if you are looking for great Weight Watchers recipe book recommendations, a friend of mine HIGHLY recommends Weight Watchers Family Meals: 250 Recipes for Bringing Family, Friends, and Food Together (her kids LOVE the recipes in this book), Weight Watchers One Pot Cookbook (great for lazy nights when you can’t be bothered to cook something complicated), Weight Watchers Cook it Fast: 250 Recipes in 15, 20, 30 Minutes (her absolute favorite cookbook of all time).
