weight watchers menu plans, mixing fresh and pre made ingredients

I have a few tricks up my sleeve for eating healthy while staying on budget each week. One tip is to opt for one or two prepared or packaged ingredients and supplement with in-season (which also means on sale) produce!

Items like hummus, barbecue sauce, salsa and even bacon can serve as inspiration for creating meals that are well-balanced without breaking the bank. These can also be great time savers on busy weeknights!
