A free 7-day flexible meal plan including breakfast, lunch and dinner and a shopping list. All recipes include calories and Weight Watchers Freestyle Smart Points.

A free 7-day flexible meal plan including breakfast, lunch and dinner and a shopping list. All recipes include calories and Weight Watchers Freestyle Smart Points.

I’m excited to share this breakfast pizza recipe with you for the new meal plan!

If you’re new to my meal plans, I’ve been sharing 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. You should aim for around 1500 calories* a 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. I’m not using the full meal plans, but definitely using your website as inspiration. Thank you!

  2. I loved this meal plan, I’ll definitely being using skinnytaste again! The only thing that didn’t go over particularly well, was the chicken and rice. My husband and both agreed that it wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t great like the other things on this menu.

    We loved the chicken and lentil soup!

  3. Love these weekly recipes with the shopping list included. My meals had gotten rather boring and this reminds me of how many options are out there. I also can get really tired trying to think a week in advance. Thank you for your help. Hope you can continue this or at least keep past menus available.

  4. I’ve been following your recipes since I received an Instant Pot for the holidays and I’m obsessed! This is the first meal plan I’ve tried and my boyfriend and I have loved everything so far! Makes it so much easier to go shopping and takes rhnwhat do I make tonight stress away! Thank you! Keep me coming !

  5. I LOVE your meal plan options and all of the delicious recipes from the website! We’ve been trying them out as a family and we’ve definitely figured out some new favorites. This is an amazing way to keep from eating the same boring food over and over again. I also just purchased the skinnytaste Fast and Slow cookbook, which has a ton of amazing options.

  6. Yes! I use these plans. My boyfriend and I just found you and this is helping us so much with our busy schedules. Please keep making them! It’s a lifesaver for me!

  7. YES!!! Please keep sharing your meal plans and recipes! I have your “Fast and Slow” cookbook as well and I love all of your ideas. I REALLY appreciate you including Weight Watchers points in all of your posts, especially now for the FreeStyle plan because WW really works for me and it’s so nice to finally have a blog to follow that can be in sync with the plan. Your food is always delicious and I go to your site often–thanks for doing what you do!

  8. These are wonderful and so very helpful for our family! 

  9. I can’t believe I’m just discovering your Meal Plans. They’re amazing! Thank you so much for this resource. I just put my shopping list together and will be starting with this plan this week. Thank you!

  10. Just started back to weight ware hers and trying to work full time and make healthy meals for myself and the family was a struggle. Last week was my first week following your meal plan and I loved it!! Keep them coming!! Your a lifesaver!!

  11. Ok to be fair I have not tried this meal plan out but I just wanted to let you know I’m so excited you’re offering this, especially doing it for free is so generous. I’ve loved your dinner meal plans for awhile and I’m excited to try it with breakfast & lunch added 🙂 

  12. I love these meal plans. Went looking today in anticipation of next weeks meal plan. I have shared these meals plans with family and friends. We know everyone struggles with what to make for dinner every night. I find it helps us to stay on course when we have it all planned out ahead of time. If not, it’s easy to revert back to eating out. I’m a big fan! Please keep them coming.

  13. Thanks Gina for the wonderful meals and the helpful grocery lists. I’m feeling so inspired to meet my family’s budget and healthy weight goals!

  14. These plans have been helping me stay on track!!!! I am so happy! Down 40 pounds ????????????????????????????????

  15. Gina – I just wanted to reach out and let you know, my husband and I just tried your meal plans for the first time this week and we LOVED it. I have been telling my friends. The variety of meals, planning ease, and shopping lists are great. We struggle mid week to come up with creative cooking ideas and end up eating out, so this is definitely a help for us to save money and eat better.

  16. This is so helpful! Thanks for sharing it helps to have an idea of meals for the week with the ability to swap things here and there. Definitely hope you keep sharing !

  17. Thank you for making this meal plan available for everyone, I am really enjoying making all these meals and this is my first week to follow any meal plan. I have been feeling better and taking pictures of all gorgeous meal and posting on Instagram.

  18. Gina, I’m am avid fan, and have both your cookbooks! (Excited for a 3rd!?!?!) Prior to marriage and children, I loved trying some of your more labar intensive recipes. Now, with too much to do and to little time, I’ve tried some meal plans offered out there that were easy but bland, and I came back to you. Your plans are a good balance of ease and challenge. The shopping list is accurate, and I don’t have to worry about missing ingredients when I get home. Thank you for sharing these!

  19. I am loving these meal plans so much. I have lost ten pounds since I started following them, after more than a year of struggling to take any baby weight off after the birth of my daughter. Thank you so much and please keep posting!

    BTW, the grocery list for this week is missing canned chickpeas for the tuna salad. 🙂

  20. Please continue to share these they are so awsome! I am a college student living in my first apartment and these help so much to keep me from ordering take out every night.

  21. Have way thru this week of meal plans and so far, delicious!!!  But is it me or am I missing where the 1 lb of asparagus fits in?

    Thanks Gina!!!

  22. Absolutely love the menu plans. Wonderful variety to choose from. I am hoping to purchase a meal planner too. Will the meal planners be available soon?

  23. Love the plans, even if I dont use every single recipe. I joined WW years ago, it just makes sense and is healthy & do-able. Really love that you share these recipes.

  24. Thank you for these meal plans! I’ve tried several meals this week that contain ingredients I don’t normally enjoy, but I decided to go for it anyway – but I have loved the combo of flavors. I don’t like cucumbers much, but Monday’s salad was awesome – not a fan of chickpeas, but loved the tuna salad! And it’s helping me stick to plan – so please keep them coming!

  25. Hi Gina:

    I have been enjoying your recipes for a long time. They have all been delicious. I just recently began using your meal plans to help me lose weight and they have been wonderful. The food is great and I never feel deprived. Keep up the good work!

  26. Yes!! I use these!! Please keep making them!! 

  27. I see asparagus in the grocery list, but I don’t see a recipe that has asparagus? Also, you forgot a can of chickpeas in the grocery list. This is my first time using one of your meal plans and so far I am enjoying all the recipes! I didn’t think I would like the cucumber salad, but it was really good!

  28. I like these meal planners – I love most of your recipes but never quite pin down the meal planning bit of it and now you have helped me get there. Keep it up to help folks like me!!

  29. Thank you so much for providing these recipes, shopping list and weekly planner. You would not believe how much easier it’s making my life! I am doing weight watchers with freestyle points and you’re recipes fit in amazingly! I haven’t made anything yet that has not been delicious. I am looking forward to this week’s recipes too. Thank you for taking the time to do this!

  30. Please continue sharing! Your hard work and effort are really helpful to us all and definitely appreciated!!! 

  31. I love the recipes and meal plans! Been sharing your site with everyone! I need to remember to wait for the meal plan to come out before I shop though! Keep up the great work!

  32. I’m excited to found this website and look forward to trying out the recipes.

  33. Please keep sharing. Love all of your recipes.

  34. I am new to Skinny taste and your meal plans but was very excited to disover them! I can’t wait to follow one and really bring back healthier meals in to my home. That breakfast pizza and the pancakes look amazing!

  35. I came across your recipes and plan.  I love that you include days with leftovers.  Other plans don’t do that. I would always end up with too ichnfood and end up throwing food away. Thanks!

  36. PLEASE, PLEASE keep sharing! I have recently discovered your recipes and menu plans and am so excited to start them! A lot of hard work has gone into making up these meals plans and listing ingredients to make our lives easier. I can’t thank you enough for all that work and commitment to healthy eating!

  37. I’m curious why all of the recipes are so high in calories. Anyone actually losing weight wouldn’t be able to make them. I’m only asking because the name of this blog is “Skinnytaste”, which is why I subscribed. THank you.

    • These are so low, in fact so low that there is room to eat more in the day. What do you consider high?

    • I use these recipes all the time, especially when I am strictly doing Weight Watchers and they are KEY to me losing weight because everything is delish and fits into my points allocation.

    • Leslie, you must be looking at the calorie totals for the whole day. There is no way anyone could look at these meals and legitimately think they are high in calories. 

  38. Super excited to try this meal plan this week! Thank you for posting them! I had a lot of ingredients at home but what I needed to buy came to roughly $100 which was great! 

  39. I love following your menu posts,Gina! Please keep it up! I have your first cookbook and love the recipes in there.Thank you!
    Susan

  54. YES! I use these and send them to my adult children, as well! Please continue sharing them. I find the plans, the recipes and especially the grocery list very helpful!

  55. What is the recipe that is pictured in the upper left hand corner? It looks like you made naan or pizza with the bagel recipe and topped it with an egg and bacon — looks super delicious but I can’t figure out which recipe it is.
