7-Day Healthy Meal Plan

Need an idea for a Thanksgiving party at school or at the office? Try my Pumpkin Pie! If you are looking to lighten or change some traditional dishes up check out Mom’s Stuffing, Lightened Up, Mashed Sweet Potato Brulee or my Cranberry Pear Sauce. Also don’t forget to plan ahead for your turkey (some say there may be a shortage?), here is a great recipe if you want to dry brine your turkey.

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!

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!

  10. I think your solution to the personal points is great. Can you please still keep the blue purple green points listed for existing recipes? It at least will give us and idea from the last plan. I love your food plans

  11. i’ve been using these meal plans for a while now and i love them. i’ve doing the personal points plan this week and with the different zero point lists i think the button/link you have been putting on the new recipes is a great way to do it, this way it will also morph with the changes as they go along without you having to come back to each of the recipes and update them every time the plan changes. this does make it difficult for the ones who follow an old -lean though.

  12. I use these plans each and every week. I find them to be super helpful and your recipes taste delicious. So thank you for doing them, they save me a lot of time.

  13. I use your meal plans and love them!  I hope you will continue them. Thank you!

  15. The recipe builder links are awesome, thanks!

  16. Thank you, Gina! You’re awesome to make it so easy to take a recipe from your site and it automatically go to the WW site with my personal points already calculated. I sure hope WW is greatly compensating you for all you do!

  17. Thank you so much for posting!  I love these plans so much and look forward to them every week.  It’s really helpful for planning and discovering some of your older recipes.  Please keep posting!
