February Week 2 Meal Plan

This week’s meal plan includes a lot more salads then I usually do because I’m desperate to meet my 5 lb loss goal this month and get back on track. Salad seems like a good way to do it and while my husband may go loony I’m hopeful the scale will bring encouragement next week when I weigh in!

You’ll find a recipe below for a new favorite version of Turkey Taco Filling. I found it on the WW app and I think it’s one of the best I’ve had. It’s a lovely 1 point per 1/2 cup and probably less because I am the one that added in the black beans which are zero points.

Valentine’s Day is this week and I’m hopeful the black pepper chicken and cheesecake shooters give us a nice break from the salads :) Date night is Friday so we’ll be a little crazy and live it up at some restaurant!

Tell me what’s on your menu this week!






THURSDAY (Valentine’s Day!)


Turkey Taco Filling

(1 point per 1/2 cup)


  • 2 Tbs chili powder
  • 2 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 1/5 tsp smoked paprika

  1. Mix together spices (not brown sugar) and set aside
  2. Over medium heat cook turkey breaking it down with the back of a spoon until no longer pink, about 4-5 min.
