The latest update to the Weight Watchers program has created a need for this Weight Watchers FreeStyle Plan One Week Menu Plan. This also works for those on the FlexPlan. It is based on 23 SmartPoints per day but allows you to add in more pointed foods to help meet higher point needs.

If you aren't sure what the FreeStyle Plan or FlexPlan is all about, you can check out our post with Weight Watchers FreeStyle Plan and FlexPlan Updates. This post gives you all the details you need to understand what changes have happened. The basic rundown is that more proteins are zero points and that daily points go down some. This makes a new menu plan a must for many to learn how to navigate and stay within their daily point range.
Notes about the Menu Plan below
This menu plan is set up to give a lot of options to choose from. It is also created to feed a family of 4. So, you may find that not all of these recipes work for your family. That is why there are so many options to choose from. You can work with what your family enjoys to create a menu that you can afford and will love.
Since we have both meat eaters, vegans, and vegetarians who are seeking a menu plan, I am going to include some options that would fit any dietary needs. In the future, I will work on a vegan specific menu plan.
Breakfast on FreeStyle Plan
Choose from one of the following recipes/suggestions to build your breakfast each morning. Some of the recipes make multiple servings, and work great for feeding the whole family or creating a few days of meals for just one person.

How to add more points to your day
The new healthy point range per day is from 10 under your daily target up to 5 over your daily target. So, even if you have more than 23 SmartPoints per day, you don't have to meet that full amount each day if you are satisfied and feeling full from the zero point foods you are eating.
If you are one of us who actually gets more than 23 SmartPoints per day, then the items below can help you hit your daily point goal, without feeling guilty. If you are still hungry and haven't met your healthy point range as mentioned above, then consider some of the following things to add to your day.
- An extra serving of a pointed meal
- A 3 SmartPoint serving of brown rice with your protein and vegetables
- Half of an avocado
- A handful of black olives added to your salad
- A 3-5 SmartPoint serving of roasted almonds, cashews, or mixed nuts
- Full-fat salad dressing on your salad
- A small healthier dessert item like Halo Top or one of our dessert recipes
- A 3 SmartPoint tablespoon of peanut butter
