7-Day Healthy Meal Plan

I’m craving tacos! Anyone else lol? I have some on this weeks plan but there are plenty of other recipes you can try, like these Vegetarian Black Bean Tacos, Madison’s Favorite Beef Tacos or Grilled Chicken Tacos with Lettuce Slaw, Avocado and Cotija.  Don’t forget your sides!

Why Should Everyone Meal Plan?

Meal planning is a great way to organize your meals for the week ahead. You also save time and money in the supermarket! And of course, planning ahead helps you stick to your goals!

About The Meal Plan

If you’re new to my meal plans, I’ve been sharing these free, 7-day flexible healthy meal plans (you can see my previous meal plans here) that are meant as a guide, with plenty of wiggle room for you to add more food, coffee, beverages, fruits, snacks, dessert, wine, etc. or swap recipes out for meals you prefer, you can search for recipes by course in the index. You should aim for around 1500 calories* per day.

There’s also a precise, organized grocery list that will make grocery shopping so much easier and much less stressful. Save you money and time. You’ll dine out less often, waste less food and you’ll have everything you need on hand to help keep you on track.

Lastly, if you’re on Facebook join my Skinnytaste Facebook Community where everyone’s sharing photos of recipes they are making, you can join here. I’m loving all the ideas everyone’s sharing! If you wish to get on the email list, you can subscribe here so you never miss a meal plan!

Also, if you don’t have the Skinnytaste Meal Planner, now would be a great time to get one to get organized for 2020! There was a print error last year, but it’s perfect now! You can order it here!

THE DETAILS:

Breakfast and lunch Monday-Friday, are designed to serve 1 while dinners and all meals on Saturday and Sunday are designed to serve a family of 4. Some recipes make enough leftovers for two nights or lunch the next day. While we truly believe there is no one size fits all meal plan, we did our best to come up with something that appeals to a wide range of individuals. Everything is Weight Watchers friendly, I included the updated WW Blue SP for your convenience, feel free to swap out any recipes you wish or just use this for inspiration!

The grocery list is comprehensive and includes everything you need to make all meals on the plan. I’ve even included brand recommendations of products I love and use often. Cross check your cabinets because many condiments you’ll notice I use often, so you may already have a lot of them.

And last, but certainly not least, this meal plan is flexible and realistic. There’s plenty of wiggle room for cocktails, healthy snacks, dessert and dinner out. And if necessary, you can move some things around to make it work with your schedule. Please let me know if you’re using these plans, this will help me decide if I should continue sharing them!

  17. Both my daughter (a working mom with 2 boys) and myself (retired) use your meal plans. We have been fans since your first cookbook came out. Because of the pandemic, we subscribed to Greenchef, but there was not very much variety. Then, my daughter found your meal planning guide and we both love it. Your recipes are healthy, easy to follow and delicious. The list of ingredients and well-thought out calendar make cooking so much less time consuming. We both have bought all your cookbooks as well. Please keep doing what you do.

  18. This is amazing. I am in awe. I have previously visited your site for recipe ideas, but it has been a while. I am trying to get back on track. This meal plan, and the resources you have provided with it are just absolutely awesome! Thank you!
