I’m also excited to share the Skinnytaste Ultimate Meal Planner is now available! The 52 week spiral bound meal planner has weekly meal planning grids you can tear out and put on your fridge if you wish, a 12-week meal plan, 30 (15 new) recipes, and tear-out grocery lists.

A note about WW Personal Points:

Lots of you are asking if I will be including the new WW Personal points on my recipes, and for now I am not sure how I can since everyone’s points are different. But for now I’m including links to my recipe builder, see the orange button to the print recipe button that says my personal points. Click on that and it takes you to the WW website where you can see the points and add it to your day (US only, you must be logged into your account). I am hoping to find a solution for adding points as I know many of you like to glance ahead at points before making something.

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! Check out my new Skinnytaste Meal Planner which is now out for pre-order!

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!

  1. I’ve just found these meal planners. I’m an overwhelmed woman with 2 new-to-me step teens that hate everything I cook. I know I need more ideas but have been floundering since I grew up vegetarian most of my childhood into my 20’s. I have a narrow range of foods that I actually enjoy because I’m repelled by garlic, onion, bell pepper, and heavy spices. I want both my husband and myself to find a way to eat better consistently. I’m excited to see this variety, which extends well-beyond the common “meat, onion, pepper and garlic” box that’s everywhere (especially meal delivery kits).
    Thank you for such generosity- providing this information to the community for no charge. That’s amazing. 
    Now I want to buy your books. 🙂

    I just want to say thank you for the WW recipe builder link! I actually love this method so much more than just having you list the points bc it allows me to play with the ingredients.  As an example, I’m making the huevos rancheros and adding chicken chorizo and black beans.  The link to the recipe builder lets me add in those ingredients easily to the recipe and allows me to substitute the corn tortillas that I like and what not.  I feels it’s a much more realistic look at points this way so THANK YOU!!!!

    Wow, you are AMAZING!   I love how thorough you are and I love to see your recipes on Facebook.  I don’t have to go to your bio and click on any other links to get to the recipe.  You make it so easy for anyone to see your recipe immediately.  Thank you so much!
