Day in the life of Weight Watchers - Salmon and spicy bean salsa recipe

Monday, 7 July 2014

I had my second weigh in since starting back on the Weight Watchers plan yesterday and have now lost a total of 5lbs in two weeks. I was a little disappointed to only lose 2lbs in my first week back but I already ate pretty well before heading back to class and still used skimmed milk and ate a high protein and vegetable based diet so the changes were not as extreme for me as some other people joining for the first time. 5lbs is a pretty decent loss and and I've enjoyed getting back on track and eating plenty of tasty food.

This is what I ate on Sunday, I tend to have a more relaxed approach on the weekends and eat more 'treat' type foods and have a late brunch. I also ate some cherries and a peach which aren't photographed.

Brunch  - Baked beans, mushrooms, bacon medallions and egg. All Filling and healthy, no counting.

Lunch - crumpets, Nutella (1 of 2 daily treats) fruit, water.

Tea with skimmed milk, WW bar (2 of 2 daily treats)

My evening meal was so tasty but simple to cook so I thought I would share the recipe:

Serves 2 - 420 calories - 2 of your 5 a day


- 200g 2 x Salmon fillets
- 400g Canned mixed beans, drained
- 227g Canned chopped tomatoes
- 20g Fresh coriander, finely chopped
- 1 Red chilli, finely chopped


  1. In a bowl combine the black beans and tomatoes.
  2. Stir in coriander, chilli and salt.
  3. Pan fry Salmon for 3 or 4 minutes on each side to thoroughly cooked.
  4. Serve salmon with salsa and a green salad.
I started counting points again this week after two weeks on the simple start plan. I'm going to mix it up so some days I will count points and other follow the Filling & Healthy plan. Hoping for another solid loss of around 2lbs this week.


  1. This looks yummy. I was really successful on WW - lost stone, but then it plateaued and didn't seem to be working :(. Good luck on another 2lbs this week :) x

  4. Oh no! I can't even look at Nutella without eating a whole jar! Congrats on your weight loss this week. You are doing great.
