Weight Watchers can be a great way to lose weight and keep it off. These Weight Watchers meal prep ideas make life on the myWW plan easy–when you’re hungry, you have something that’s already prepped to heat up and eat.
I’ve pulled together my favorite Instant Pot meal prep recipes for Weight Watchers for you. These are hearty recipes that keep for a week in the fridge, or can easily be frozen and reheated.
Weight Watchers Meal Prep Recipes
All of the recipes I’m including in the list below are calculated with the online recipe creator. I use this to get my info and on occasion I chat with their online representatives to get a clear idea of how to count my recipes.
That being said, if you have questions you should always re-calculate the recipes using the ingredients in your kitchen. We are all in charge of our own health and well being after all; do what is best for you and your WW journey.
Weight Watchers has always been a tough one to write meal plans for since the daily points and weeklies can vary so much. That being said, I decided that the best way to help you plan is to give you recipe ideas and walk you through how I plan for myself.
WW Blue Plan Meal Prep: Take your daily target and choose foods below that fit within those numbers. You also have a free food list of about 200 foods to fill in the gaps here. This program is more like the freestyle program!
WW Purple Plan Meal Prep: Choose the recipes below based on your daily points allowance. You have over 300 free foods to choose from, including lean proteins like grilled chicken breast, as well!
WW Green Plan Meal Prep: Green plan has the smallest free foods list, about 100 items. You also get more daily points than the other plans, so don’t worry–it all works out!
When should I meal prep with the Instant Pot for Weight Watchers?
If I don’t do everything at once I’m not going to be truly prepped for the week. I try to prep on my last day off before a work week.
If push comes to shove and I don’t have time to do a ton of meal prepping this is where I start: hard boiled eggs, chicken, and sweet potatoes. When those are in the Instant Pot or on the stove, I cut up raw vegetables and fruit and portion them out accordingly.
