Black Bean Zucchini Rice Skillet

Super easy, only 5 ingredients and a great Meatless Monday option! This keeps me full without feeling super heavy as well.

  • 🔥4 Weight Watchers Points Plus 
  • Makes 6 servings

Here’s what you need: 

  • 1/2 cup uncooked brown rice 
  • 1 can black beans, drained/rinsed
  • 1 can Rotel tomatoes
  • 1 large zucchini 
  • 1/2 shredded cheddar cheese 

Use spray oil to grease pan, add zucchini, sautée for 5 minutes.

Add in rice, tomatoes, black beans and 1/2 cup water. 

Stir well. Cover and let simmer until rice is cooked. 

Tip: I used to boil in a bag rice (removed from bag and poured into pan) because it cooks faster so it took me about 10 minutes to simmer. 

Once ready top with cheese. 


Turkey & Fruit Salad 🥗 


I love fruit in my salads, they make it so delicious! 😋

Here’s what you need:

  • Handful of Spring Mix Salad
  • 4 pieces of oven roasted turkey lunch meat, chopped
  • 1 mozzarella string cheese, chopped
  • 4-5 grapes, halved
  • 3 strawberries, chopped
  • Skinny Girl Raspberry Vinegarette 
  • Optional: Almonds or Walnuts (I didn’t add nuts to this salad but I often do for extra protein)

Lay down spring mix, meat, cheese, fruits and drizzle with dressing. Enjoy! 😍

Chicken Ceasar Wraps

So I’m all about quick, easy and healthy with a 6 year old and 6 month old baby life can be hectic and meal planning isn’t always the easiest task to accomplish. These wraps couldn’t be easier and they’re pretty darn tasty! 


  • 1 package Flat Out Wraps
  • 1 bag of Ceasar salad complete kit
  • 2 bags of precooked grilled chicken 

Mix all ingredients into bowl and coat well (I omitted the croutons to cut down on calories). 


Portion into flat outs and wrap. I wrapped mine in aluminum foil so it would hold together better in my husband’s lunch box. 

  (Ok so this is not the best picture but I was limited on time lol.)

  Makes 6 large wraps.
