Smart Ones for Lunch are the Smart Choice

You may remember me saying I was going to start the year off right. Eating healthy and trying to lose weight. I am done 15 lbs and have done so with just a few changes. No stress at all. 

Now that the children are in school I am home alone all day. Yay me, right. Well this actually messes me up. I am forgetting to eat. By the time the kids get home (first one home at 3pm) I realize I skipped lunch. If you have been on a weight loss journey or a healthy eating routine, you know skipping meals is bad. I finally got myself eating breakfast on a regular basis now I am off with lunch. I have started making meals for dinner that I can put aside for the next day for lunch. Smaller portions that I can heat and eat with no fuss. Not every day is a leftovers day though. 

I have stocked my freezer with SmartOnes 


I got myself some of the single serve microwave meals but also some of the pouches. These are great to throw in the frying pan and heat up quick. they taste great! I was really surprised. I do not want to sacrifice taste. I found they are full of meat and a great variety of veggies.

Adding Weight Watchers Smart Ones to my daily meal plan was easy and affordable. Their meals are found in all grocery stores and major retailers. I was able to pick mine up at Walmart then found some more at Sobey’s. The variety of meal options are endless. Breakfast, lunch and dinner options make meal planning a breeze. I also like to eat them when the kids have something I know I should be avoiding. Much easier then making two separate meals. 

I hope with the holidays around the corner I can continue to make the right choices towards success. Fo rmore information and up to date promotions check out Smart Ones on Facebook 

How do you eat when you are home alone?


  1. WTG on the weight loss. I love the weight watchers smart one meals. I tend to forget to eat sometimes too when the kids are gone.

  2. I really like the Smart ones. Great for Lunch.

  3. I like the single serve frozen meals when its just me at home. I can have something more exotic or spicy that I cant always make if I'm feeding others.

  4. I'm going to have to check these out. I'm famous for not eating until I'm starving and then I over eat, ugh! Thanks for the suggestion of Smart Ones!

    Congrats on your weight loss! I love Smart Ones, they are so tasty! I've really got to stock up on these meals, too, I'm also terrible for forgetting to eat lunch and I'm diabetic, so not good!

    Way to go with the weight loss, it is not an easy thing to do. I have to admit I often forget lunch too. I have looked at these at the grocery store but I am not a fan of frozen meals but maybe I should be brave and try one or two of these and see what they are like.

    I use to eat these meals all the time and lost a great deal of weight. I agree that they do taste great. I would love to start doing it again this winter. I love all the new meals that they have to choose from now.
