Part 4: Go-To Meals for Weight Watchers Success – Lose Weight Eating Pizza

For weight loss success, you HAVE to find what works for you. Do you love pizza? Same. For me to stick with something long term it MUST include pizza. Since February, I have really had to put in extra effort to figure out how to make “my favorites” work for me – but it really paid off!

26 Pounds Down!

This post is about having go-to meals, however, it is important to not limit your “go-to” meals, either. Your body gets used to eating the same thing over and over which can sometimes cause you to hit a plateau. Be sure to change it up!

I feature a couple of recipes below from skinnytaste®. Her site is perfect for when you are on a plan – she notes on ALL of her recipes what plans it works with (keto, low card, weight watchers, etc) and notes how many Smart Points it is. What a fabulous thing the internet is!


Roasted Chicken and Root Vegetables (4-6 Points)

I buy the marinated half of a whole chicken at the grocery store and already cut up root vegetable package. The root vegetable packages I get already have some herb butter with them (I only use about half of it). Root vegetables are typically parsnips, butternut squash, potatoes and onion. I stick them both in the oven at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 30-40 minutes and WHA-LA, dinner is served.

Zucchini Noodles, Marinara and Turkey Meatballs (5 Points)

This couldn’t be easier. Pick up some already made zucchini noodles (Whole Foods), heat up some marinara and heat up some already made turkey meatballs – usually found in the frozen section.

Cauliflower Fried Rice (2-5 Points)

You DO NOT need to make your own cauliflower rice. Simply pick up a bag of Green Giant Cauliflower Rice. The recipe mentioned above is relatively simple, but feel free to add chicken or shrimp for only a few extra points!

Chicken Lettuce Wraps (3 Points)

It’s no PF Changs, however, still a delicious go-to.

Pizza! (4-10 Points)

People think that pizza and weight loss do not mesh well. I am here to tell you it does! During my 8 months on Weight Watchers, I had pizza a minimum of once a week (sometimes more like 3-4 times). It is all about how you make it. Some alternative crusts include cauliflower, rice, lavash flatbread and more.

My favorite is a cauliflower crust, marinara, low fat pizza blend cheese, basil, prosciutto and arugula.

Some other options from skinnytaste®:

Avocado Toast (4 Points)

This is my favorite breakfast of all time. Find any bread or toast you like, add avocado, tomato and seasoning (I do salt and pepper or everything bagel seasoning from Trader Joe’s) – that is all you need! The best part about this breakfast is that it is 1) it’s tasty 2) it includes veggies and 3) it actually fills you up.


1 Chicken Taco with all the fixins’ (6 points)
Salsa (0 points)
12 Tortilla Chips (4 points)
Ceviche (2 points)

Lunch = 1 California Roll with side ginger salad (8 points)
Dinner = 2 California Rolls (10 points)

6-inch Turkey Sub (8 points)
6-inch Veggie Sub (7 points)
No, these don’t have cheese or mayonnaise!

Kids size Pho Tai (8 points)

8-count Grilled Nuggets (2 points)
Chicken Noodle Soup with Saltines (4 points)

Chicken Noodle Soup (3 points)
Half Strawberry Poppyseed Salad with Chicken (5 points)

Vodka Soda Water with Lime (3 points)
Bud Light or Comparable Light Beer (3 points)
Wine (4 points)
