Meal Plan

I hope everyone has had a great week! For those of you who host Halloween parties or have to send treats in for school, Skinny Mummy Cake Balls or Spooky Spider Halloween Cupcakes are sure to please!

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 2019! 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 Weight Watcher Freestyle Points 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!

  2. All of these plans are awesome, and we have been using them for most of this year! They have been extremely helpful and not to mention tasty!

  3. Please keep these plans coming! Finally eating healthy and enjoying it 🙂 Having everything on hand to make the recipes with zero guess work is so quick and convenient for this working single parent.

  5. thank you for posting menus andrecipes. they help me so much in eating healthy

  6. When the shopping list is printed the boxes on the left for Facebook and Twitter and others also prints and blocks part of the list. Never done it before. Is it my phone or what? I would like a clean shopping list. Thanks

  10. This is awesome, yes please keep sharing!!!! 

  11. I look at your posts each Sunday to plan for the week. I use it for recipe ideas and nutritional information. Since I am single, I use it for multiple meals and sometimes reduce the recipe. I don’t use the shopping list but some people may find it helpful for planning grocery lists.

    I do appreciate what you do each and every week. It gets me out of my meal rut. Good inspiration for people who watch their food intake.

  12. Hey Gina, I use your menus every week, less as a set plan and more as a guide (oh yeah, I should make that again!). Breakfast ideas are especially welcome when I hit the “can’t eat one more hardboiled egg” slump; many of your meals have become household staples. Really appreciate your work, enjoy your cookbook and website.
