Weight Watchers Friendly Camping Meals & Photos from Muleshoe Bend Campsite

Recently, one of my best friends decided to give Weight Watchers a try, and after seeing her success, I decided I would join in too. Of course, the hardest part about any diet is making it work around “real life” and we had already scheduled one of our bi-annual camping excursions for this past weekend.

So, there was nothing to do but figure out how to make a camping trip Weight Watchers friendly!

Luckily, with the new Weight Watchers program, this really wasn’t too hard. Here’s what we ate this weekend:

Dinner, Dinner Day One: 15 Smart Points

2 Links of Chicken/Apple/Gouda Sausage (HEB Brand), Corn on the Cob w/ Butter & Chili Powder, and Tomato, Basil & Feta Salad with Lite Italian Vinaigrette

Breakfast, Breakfast Day Two: 3 Smart Points

2 oz Smoked Salmon, Canteloupe, and Coldbrew Coffee with Sugar and Half&Half

Lunch, Day Two (No Picture, Sorry!): 12 Smart Points

Ham Sandwich (2 slices Sara Lee Soft & Smooth Bread, 4 oz Thin Sliced Ham, 1 tsp mayo, lettuce, and tomato, 1 serving baked bbq chips

Dinner, Day Two: 11 Smart Points

9 Shrimp, sauteed in 1/2 tbsp butter, marinated in 1/2 tbsp Zesty Italian dressing; Foil packet of zucchini and cherry tomatoes with 1/2 tbsp Zesty Italian dressing
For dessert, 1 apple w/ Quaker Cup Maple & Brown Sugar Oatmeal, Cinnamon, and 1 tbsp butter in a foil packet

Breakfast, Day 3: 7 Smart Points

French Toast: 2 pieces Sara Lee Soft & Smooth Bread, battered in 1 beaten egg & cinnamon, topped with strawberries, and 3 tbsp Mrs. Butterworth Sugar Free Syrup

And if you’re wondering, but…what about her weeklies or fitpoints? Surely Whitney got a few more points than this? Yep…..we drank them. What’s camping without a little “sauce” for sitting around the campfire?IMG_4669

Of course, even though I did dip into my weeklies a bit, I don’t really feel too bad about it, because we also took a 2+ hour hike each day, resulting in my getting more than 15k steps a day, according to my Fitbit.

Not a Weight Watcher? Fine. Here’s some more photos from our camping trip:

“Mystical Fire” – highly recommend!
The hubby’s biggest fish…he caught 5 total over the weekend
And me with my biggest…I only caught two, but my biggest was bigger 🙂
