Going forward, I’ll be doing monthly updates on my progress on the first Monday of each month. I’ve lost about 10 lbs since the project started, but none since I last updated.
I’m not really bothered about that though. It’s summertime, and we’re having a great time. So, not losing weight? It’s okay right now.
I don’t have a graceful transition for here, so just pretend I do as I launch into this review. Please?
Recently, I was contacted about trying the new Weight Watchers Fresh Meals & Deli Salads. They’re available in the deli counter in stores like Stop & Shop. Being that I am on Weight Watchers, and always looking for something easy (and predictable) to work into my meals — particularly the ones in my office — I agreed.
There are 19 varieties of Weight Watchers Fresh Meals & Deli Salads available, including six deli salads. They sent me a nice selection of the varieties to try out (and kept me fed at lunch in the office for weeks!).
My favorite varieties were the Three Cheese Ravioli and the Chili Con Carne, both of which really hit the spot when I made them. I suspect that the lasagna and turkey meals might be perfect during the winter months too.
One thing I did notice across the board was that the entrees are lightly seasoned, so be sure to have your salt handy to season them to your preference. If you don’t already have salt and pepper shakers in your desk drawer, you should have one. You never know when you might need it. But I digress.
The biggest question though is would I buy them for myself? The answer is yes. These meals are simple, easy and fast to heat up in the office — way better than resorting to fast food.
