How to Meal Prep for Weight Watchers

Meal prep is taking one or two days to plan out and cook some of your meals for the week ahead.

Here are the steps to meal prep with Weight Watchers.

How to Do Weight Watchers Meal Prep

  1. Choose your meals or recipes.

    Browse our collection of WW recipes with points, look on Pinterest or check out the WW app. Be sure to take note of how many points in each recipe.

  2. Create a grocery list.

    Create a simple meal plan for your week and a shopping list of items you need to purchase.

  3. Shop.

    Shop in the store or online and have your groceries delivered or pick them up. I recommend Walmart pick-up and InstaCart.

  4. Chop and brown.

    Chop vegetables and brown meat the day before you plan to cook. This saves time when you do all the chopping at once.

  5. Cook!

    Here’s the fun part. Prepare your recipes.

  6. Portion into individual containers.

    Once your food is prepared and cooled, portion it into individual containers and store for the week’s meals.

This might be a bit overwhelming at first, but I promise that once you do it a time or two, soon you’ll be great at meal prepping. If you are new to meal prep, start with just 1-2 recipes at first to make it easier.
