Healthy Meal Plan (Sept 21-27)

7-Day Healthy Meal Plan

I cannot thank you all enough for making my new Skinnytaste- Meal Prep cookbook #1 on Amazon this week!!!! Your support means so much to me, thank you for allowing me do a job that I love! Let me know what recipes you can’t wait to make, and then tell me your favorites as you make them!

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!

  1. I like the meals in this meal plan, but for some reason it won’t allow me to add it to my google drive.

  2. I just realized you have meal plans on here. I have two of your cookbooks, and it’s tough figuring out what to cook each week. These are great! Will be using them this week! 

  3. Hello! 16 year old son asked if we could shift our meals to 50% vegetarian (we’re about 1/3) and we said “Yes!!!!” but that he has to help a bit more with meal planning or cooking — thanks to your meal plans (so awesome!!!) he’ll be helping more with cooking and we’ll be eating even healthier (and as tasty for sure!!).

    Please keep the weekly meal plans coming — they’re an asset tour household!!!

    With much appreciation, Angelina (Toronto, Canada)

    Good stuff I’m looking forward to adding to my plan this week!

  16. I just came across your site, as I frantically try to find healthy, seasonal ideas to feed my family during the week. I am terrible at meal planning, so I am so glad to find your site. So many meal plans on other sites only include dinners. So to see that you have included breakfast and lunch, makes me so happy! Thank you again for all you do!

  17. I love these coming out earlier so I can start my meal planning. Thank you for making it easier!

  19. I love these plans SO much! You have no idea how helpful they are. Thank you so much for sharing!!
