Meal Plan

I hope everyone had a safe, happy holiday spent with loved ones. I also hoped you enjoyed some of my new recipes, let me know which ones were your favorites!

WW has changed their plan to now include a Blue, Purple and Green Plan. All the recipes on my blog are updated for the Blue plan. I’ve been updating all my recipes (over 2000) and have complete 2019 with the other two colors, and I am working my way down so please be patient.

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 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 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 love your meal plans! As I’m planning to buy the book. Are you coming out with a 2020 meal planner book?

  2. Thank you for doing these meal plans. It has been very cold this week. I really appreciate the Pumpkin Soup, Skillet Enchilada yummy thing, and two nights of White Chili 😀 The past couple of weeks your meal plans have been phenomenal. You are a genius and thank you for taking the time to share your talent with all of us.

  3. This meal plan was great! I had a lot of the things already , and my husband really liked the meatballs.

    We have never tried a recipe of yours we didn’t like!

    Thank you!

  4. Thank you! i was in need of inspiration for my menu plan and these was perfect!!!! I plan on using the frozen turkey meat from Thanksgiving to use in place of the chicken in the Waldorf salad! One question though, where do you buy figs? I’ve wanted to try the fig and honey overnight oats but i cannot find figs in my neighborhood grocery stores. I plan to substitute with apples since i have a ton of those.

  5. These plans are a live saver! These are helping me successfully lose weight. I needed the extra brain power help and recipes have been amazing!

  6. I truly appreciate the meal plans and shopping lists!  But I’m wondering if Gina can somehow designate the source of the recipe. I own the first 3 cookbooks and love using them. However when I try to search  for the meal plan recipes in my books they aren’t there. Maybe a code system would work. Like if a meal plan recipe is in the Fast and Slow cookbook the recipe name could be followed with (FS). I’d much rather use my cookbook to follow the recipe than have to have my laptop on the kitchen counter!

  7. Any vegetarian diet plan for breastfeeding mother ? 

  8. Hi Gina,
    Thank you for your meal plan ideas. I can never think of any thing to fix so these help out a lot. Love how it links to a shopping list that I can then just order online and pick it up.
    Btw. I think the dates are messed up, shows 11/2 etc instead of 12/2 etc.

  9. The link for the flounder seems broken. (Love your meal plans!! Thank you!) 

  10. Just FYI the Flounder Milanese is linking to the potato recipe, not the fish recipe

  11. Hi i was wondering if you have heard of this weight loss program before? https://bit.ly/2OBkfVd. It looks like a great program to help people lose weight. I was just looking for some opinions before i make my decision. By the way i love the content you have been posting lately!

  12. Hello and thank you! This meal plan looks great, cannot wait to try some recipes.  Shopping list all set. Looking forward to making dinner instead of picking it up after work. 

  13. I appreciate your free plans and refer to them frequently to make my weekly meal plan. I love so much about your blog and find this is one of the highlights!!  I would miss them if you stopped sharing them. Thank you!

  14. Thanks so much. Merry Christmas!

  15. Hi Gina! Iran the lemon parsley potatoes in foil through the recipe builder and they are 1 point on purple not 5. Thanks for the weekly meal plans. They are so helpful!

  16. Thank you Gina!! I look forward to tour plan every Saturday. I don’t use every meal everyday but I choose several meals throughout the week. I build my plan from there. Your recipes have helped me to enjoy cooking and eating more healthy. Thank you again. 

  17. Good Morning Gina, 
    Thank you so much for your meal plans!  I look forward to them every week to help me meal plan!  Also, thank you for adding the different WW plan points to all your recipes!  

    Going through this coming weeks plan, I did notice that the points for the Blue and Green may be mixed up in some of the recipes. 

    P.S.
    I have gotten just about every family member to buy your cookbooks, so they too can enjoy your recipes!
