The last week of August is always bittersweet. I love the summer, but I also love the Fall. New month means new goals, cooler temps, comfort food like One Pot Cheesy Turkey Taco Chili Mac, schedules, cozy sweaters, etc. I’m also thrilled to get so many emails from those of you using the meal plans!!

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!

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!

  1. What do the numbers in parentheses mean?

  2. Hi Gina! Your meal plans look so great and would really benefit me with my weight loss journey, but since I am cooking for one, I am hesitant. Do you have any recommendations for how to properly go about your meal plans for 1-2 people? Would you take out a couple meals and rely on leftovers? Thanks so much! <3

  3. Absolutely love ur weekly meal plan!  Recently make the skinny Greek meatballs and skinny tzaziki sauce – DELICIOUS,

  4. When cooking pasta dishes and in the ingredients it shows how many oz of pasta, do you mean dry or cooked?

  5. Gina, I always look forward to getting your meal plans. While I don’t stick to them strictly, I use them as a guide for healthy eating and feel so much better for it. As for your recipes, they are truly amazing, so fresh and tasty. I just love cooking them!

  7. This is the most helpful—-and delicious idea ever!!! Coming from someone who has a hectic life and minimal time to grocery shop! I love the organized grocery list.

    Thank you for all the great recipes.  Making the Angel hair pasta with zucchini & tomatoes this week.   Sounds wonderful!   Also love that you include nutrition value for your recipes.

  19. Gina,
    Thank you so much for sharing these meal plans. My wife and I went to see a dietitian in April and have been changing our eating habits. We found your site and love the meal plans and recipes. We have steadily lost weight since and have not felt deprived in any way after switching our diets. We have been so impressed by your recipes and the flavor of the dishes are always impressive. Even our kids are loving the dishes we are making. We are so thankful we found your site. Please keep up the great meal plans and recipes and sharing them with us!
    Colin and Naomi Bailey
