weight watchers menu plan a week without meat

I often get asked how to save money on meat. Meat can be very expensive, and one of the best ways to save is to eat less meat! Here are some great real food recipes that are not meat-based.

Some slight modifications are needed to make the recipes count as “real food.”  I included the modifications with the recipes.
