Skinnytaste Meal Plan January 1 – 7

Skinnytaste Meal Plan January 1 - 7

To help you jump start your goals for 2018, I am sharing another free 7-day flexible meal plan including breakfast, lunch and dinner for the entire week as well as a shopping list! This is just a guide, you should aim for around 1500 calories* a day. I’ve left plenty of wiggle room for you to add more food such as coffee, beverages, fruits, snacks, dessert, wine, etc.

To make it easy for you, we’ve included a more 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.

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.

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. This is my first week doing this and I LOVE it!!! You have made it so easy to eat healthy, and also made it easy for a family. This even fills my hungry and picky boys. Thank you. Please keep doing this!!!!

  2. Gina, I have been following your recipes for years. I have both of your cookbooks and love them so much they’re my go-to gifts for friends and family. We have a common phrase in my house “skinnytaste never fails” because each recipe seems to outdo the one before. I LOVE these new meal plans that include all 3 meals and the shopping lists. I will definitely be using them! 

  3. I am using your meal plain, thanks for doing this. I understand this,well done. I hope you continue this. Love, work is done! No guessing or counting you have done it all!! Love, love!

  4. FYI I got the newly updated meal tracker from amazon and there is a MISTAKE.. after the 2nd week of the weekly meal planner (34-35) page 36 and 37 are calorie/point trackers for Friday-Sunday, then 38 and 39 are Monday-Thursday. Same thing happens for pages 40-45. Then it seems to be okay the next few ones.

  5. Your website is amazing!  Thank you so much for all your hard work and posting these amazing recipes and guides!  I just started my journey 4 days ago and this is going to help me tremendously!

  6. I HAVE FOLLOWED YOU FOR QUITE SOMETIME NOW! YOUR RECEIPES ARE AMAZING, SO TASTEFUL AND EASY TO MAKE! THESE NEW MEAL PLANS ARE INSPIRING, FOR PEOPLE ON A BUDGET THESE MEAL PLANS MAKE SENSE AND ITS ALL LAID OUT! PLEASE KEEP IT GOING. i AM SURE THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO NOT ONLY ENJOY BUT APPRECIATE ALL THAT YOU DO!!

    KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK, YOU ARE TRULY INSPIRING!!

  7. This is so awesome! Thanks for putting this together. Please please keep doing these!

  8. Thanks Gina!! Awesome week of meals, even the hubby loved them. Please continue sharing, they are a huge help to keep eating healthy all week.

  9. This is going great!!! I love all the recipes ( except the banana pancakes are not for me) thanks so much for doing this!!

  10. This is such an amazing resource. Thank you for putting it together!  So far this week I have made the mini egg omelettes, fiesta bean salad, and turkey taco chili. Everything was amazing!  And I grocery shopped using your list, so I have ingredients on hand to make the rest of the meal plan next week. Thank you, thank you again for developing this!  So exciting to have a hand-picked selection of skinny taste recipes organized and at my fingertips like this. 

  11. I’ve been using this meal plan for a couple days and have already lost two and a half pounds!!  Thank you for all you do!

  12. Please keep doing these menus!  I use them as inspiration on a regular basis.  I find the lunch suggestions particularly helpful!  

  13. Thank you for this.!!!I am a little bummed that I am currently pregnant and can’t use this meal plan but I will be referring to it the minute this baby is out; to help lose the baby weight. You website is literally the only reason I stuck to Weight Watchers the last time and I lost my baby weight. I will be sending photos this next time as a testimony to your website. Your website is amazing!!!!!

  14. Thank you for the meal plan!! I’ve loved every one of your recipes I’ve tried so far!!!! 🙂 I’m especially grateful for the Instant Pot friendly ones!!

  15. absolutely loved this! used all the recipes! Great concept! THANK YOU!!!!

  16. Thank you so much for this amazing meal plan! I’ve got the turkey chili simmering now, and I made the Salisbury Steak Meatballs and they were amazing! They might be one of my new favorites from you. Love every recipe I’ve tried of yours.

  17. Thank you! This is the first week in years I’ve made a meal plan. I also took lunch to work twice this week – and that is almost unheard of! Your weekly plan made it so easy! Thank you! You’re a genius!

  18. I don’t know what I would do without your meal plans.  They truly keep my family on track with healthy eating. It’s so easy to fall into the pattern of eating out all the time and not really paying attention to what you’re putting into your body…your meal plans help us avoid that so please, please, please keep sharing them with us.  I just received your meal planner for Christmas and am loving it.  Thank you for sharing and helping us all stay healthy and on track.  Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!

  19. Thank you for the meal plans.  I made the broccoli egg breakfast and my husband has been eating them all week.  I also made the Cauliflower soup (which was amazing) and the mediterranean  salad last night.  I would have never thought to pair those together and probably served another lettuce salad.  It was a great combination.  Love your recipes!

  20. I do use these, just not in their entirety..
    For this week, I made the taco chili soup (which I am one person so I have literally eaten it everyday this week), the tomato tuna salad (4 times!!), the banana pancakes and I want to make the quinoa bowl for Saturday breakfast. I also make eggs, but I can’t bring myself to try the muffins, I’m not a big fan of quiche so I just can’t do it… so instead I made eggs with ham spinach cheese hot sauce and onion. I’m also gonna see alt that salmon dish… If I can find salmon at a reasonable price (if I can get out of my driveway anyone anyway….darn snow!!) I’m trying to eat healthy… You’re helping me. Thank you!

    • Oh! I made that chicken parm to… Although I didn’t bread it and I did it on the stovetop. I’m still counting it though!

  21. Gina, THANK YOU so much for putting this together! This is exactly what I need – to keep myself on track all week PLUS feed my family dinner each night without making separate meals!! I cannot love this more!  Please continue!

  22. I discovered you a year ago on facebook and got your two cookbooks last year for Christmas.  Love, love, love everything I’ve made.  Even my picky kids enjoy your recipes.  So now they know they can trust your recipes… so if I introduce something new, all I have to say is, “It’s Skinnytaste” and they don’t balk.  

    Now, I am in LOVE with your weekly meal plan.  You really pack a great variety of tastes, while minimizing the workload.  Thank you for doing this, and I hope you keep it up!  

  23. I LOVE your plan! Thank you for taking the time to share. It’s so helpful when planning my own meals. Keep on sharing please!

  24. Please keep making these meal plans…I haven’t tried it yet, but I am definitely going to start within the next month…I have this one all printed off so I can use it when I start! Eating healthy is so much easier when someone else has done the leg work for you…especially when you are a busy mom of 3 that works full time like I am! I may have to tweak or sub a different meal here or there for supper if I don’t think my family will like it, but this definitely gives me somewhere to start!

  25. This is so wonderful, please keep posting weekly menus as I am following your meal plans. I love those omelettes, and just to add a little flair I wrapped them in a piece of bacon. Delicious and low-carb.

  26. I am new to your site and anxious to try your recipes as well as your meal plans.  You give the smart points for the recipes.  Are they the same as the new free style points or would the the free style points be different?

  27. I’ve always loved all your recipes and have followed you for close to 8 years now. I also recommend your site and books to all my friends and family. Because of your recipes, my husband and I were able to lose over 80 pounds combined. I love that you make these lists and meal plans for every week of the year. They’re so helpful!

  28. Love the meal plan! Your recipes are so yummy.

  29. I’m using for the first time! So far so good. I’m not doing all of the recipes so the grocery list isn’t helpful for me.

  30. I’ve been using your meal plans (breakfast, lunch, dinner) since you started them and they are incredible! I use your cookbook or my own recipes for dinner the rest of the days of the week. Please continue to do this breakfast, lunch, and dinner plan!

  31. This is awesome! Thanks very much for doing this. My daughter and I wanted to get the year off to a healthy start, and this has been a big help!

  32. Thank you so much!!! This is just what i needed to get off to a good start.  I’m a single mom with 5 Little’s and finding healthy ways to feed them seems impossible sometimes.  I can’t wait to try all of these!!! 

  33. This is exactly what I have been looking for! Straight forward, healthy, achievable, customizable, delicious. What a fantastic kick start to 2018. You have a new fan. I struggle with getting creative and healthy meals, especially breakfast and lunch. You are the answer to a busy family’s prayers. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

  34. I have two kids and a husband who are picky eaters. Many times the kids are too afraid to try anything new and the husband is complaining about my food lacking “sazón” or seasoning. I have bought both cookbooks and your new planner because I have NEVER recieved a complaint from the kids or the husband when I’ve made your recipes! I cannot thank you enough! You have made my life so much easier since meals are usually very stressful for me. Not anymore! 

  35. Thanks for spending so much time creating these weekly meal plans. I’ve taken advantage of them for the last few months. They’ve been so helpful, especially as I’m hellbent on losing these last 20#. Please keep the plans coming!

  36. Please keep doing these!!  They are awesome and really help me with planning my lunches which are some of my most difficult meals to plan.  Thank you so much for all your hard work!! 

  37. I appreciate the wonderful recipes. I use your meal plans and they are so helpful! The shopping list is also a great help, thank you for your hard work and dedication .

  38. Thanks for sharing these weekly meal plans and grocery list! Love using them ??

  39. I love, love your site. I have used your dinner plans all year as an interagal part of my weight watchers journey–35 pounds later, whenever people ask how I did it, I credit the Instagram weight watchers community and YOU! I like the inclusion of the breakfast and lunches this week. It was a great jump start to the year!

  40. I love this SO much!! The grocery list addition is such a huge timesaver for me! Thank you for helping a working mom who struggles with healthy eating look like she knows what she’s doing 🙂

  41. This looks awesome, but I’m wondering about cost? I have a tight food budget. I know it’s differnt costs in different parts of the country, but would you have an estimate or range of the cost of this food?

    • That is my biggest hurdle to. I didn’t make all the record for that reason. I doubled the taco soup and ate that over the spaghetti squash. I only made the recipes I knew I’d eat.

  42. Do you know how AMAZING this is!?? THANK YOU. Your recipes are always a hit with my picky family. Your recipes keep me on track with Weight Watchers. This is exactly what I need to kick off my year. Thank you!

  43. This is fabulous!!! YES!!! Please continue to include a grocery list with the weekly plans. I love your meal plans. They are very family friendly, easy to use and delicious. I find when I follow your recommendations and recipes, I am much more organized, calm, and prepared. Plus everyone in the house knows what we are eating, so it works out great! Thank you!! please definitely continue to include the shopping lists. Extremely helpful!! Thank you!

  44. I love your meal planning posts and use them! They are very helpful. – so please keep posting them! I also have bought the skinnytaste meal planner. I love the new spiral binding on it!

  45. Love your meal plans! Please continue to share them!! 

  46. Sorry, I’m confused, are the points in parentheses the freestyle points? They all say smart points still.

  47. OMG! I love that you did a full day! I live a very busy life and love your meal plans. What a great way to start the year!!

  48. This is my first time using one of your plans and I’m really excited as I pretty much only use your recipes for my family! I’m starting tomorrow (-:

  49. I love your plans! They are healthy, delicious, and affordable! Please keep making them!

  50. These are awesome and so helpful. I’ve been visiting your site for years and now I’m just starting to try to lose my remaining postpartum weight- my son is 7 weeks old, so getting organized is extremely difficult. These are a lifesaver! I plan to get the new meal planner as well. THANK YOU!!!!

  51. Love the meal planning – you’re helping me get healthy with portion control and adding more veggies to my family’s diet!!!! Thank you for the detailed shopping list – it is immensely helpful!

  65. Hi Gina!

    Love everything you make!! Sorry if I missed it, but are you planning to update older recipes to WW Freestyle?

    Thank you :o)

  66. It seems like the Turkey Chili Taco Soup should be 0 SP on the new freestyle. Am I wrong? It would be amazing if it was 0 points? What am I missing that has points?

  67. I love, love, love that you are doing this! Thank you so very much!

  68. Love these! Very useful to help get organized for the week

  69. I love this! Please continue. It helps me so much.

  86. Love the meal plans!!

  87. Love it and the grocery list is the best please do continue to share.

  88. Thanks for sharing your meal plans. It must be a lot of work to plan and share so many meals! I also live on Long Island, NY and am wondering if you shop at multiple supermarkets like me or have found one that has it all

  91. Yes, please keep sharing! Thank you!

  92. Yes, please keep it up! I am totally capable of looking up recipes for the week, but my menus tend to get boring. You have such a wide range of recipes. I am single so do dinner about every other day and then eat leftovers.

  93. I love your complete meal plans!,!  Please keep doing them.

  94. Please continue with the full meal plans. I have just recently started using them and my husband and I are thrilled. Makes coming up with meals effortless. Thank You!!!

  95. Out of curiosity. Since u have the weight watchers points listed. How many points are u supposed to stay under per day?? I don’t see that listed anywhere. I do love this weekly meals thing and the grocery list. 
    Other then this I use this site regularly for health meals. I’ve made several and all were pretty good. Thanks for this site and your response about the points. 

    • Its different for everyone, and again this is a guide, so you can add more food. For instance, I drink coffee in the morning with milk and sugar. You may not, so it’s meant to be flexible!

  96. Thank you for sharing these meal plans!  I struggle with breakfast and lunches – these are lifesavers!

  97. Love It ! Planning my week now.

  100. I am just starting with WW and I wanted to thank you for sharing your full meal plans. I just received your planner and have your cookbooks and was a totally overwhelmed. Your meal plans have really helped me put the information into a manageable plan for the week that I can follow. I had no idea how to start and I am so thankful that I found you and your website. My first recipe was last night and I made your Leftover Ham bone soup. It was delicious and I had to stop my husband before he ate it all. I wanted the leftovers for lunch the next day. Again thank you for your help

  101. I love your meal plans. I’m just starting up WW and it’s so helpful to have somewhere to turn to keep me on track. Thank you so much. 🙂

  102. Thanks so much for the meal plan and the grocery list! Just found your site and love it! future business idea – link the grocery list directly to Shop Right From Home and work out a commission with SR! I would love to just click a button and have your grocery list added to my cart!

  103. I love your full meal plans. Such a huge help!! Thank you thank you!

  104. OMG Gina – having a full meal plan and the shopping list is a Godsend for me to kickstart the new year. I am over the moon. I have placed my on-line grocery order – no wandering down the snack aisle. Please keep these coming! I have enjoyed -correction made so many of your recipes over the past year or more and my family has enjoyed them all. Thank you so very much for all that you do. Cookbooks, blogs and all.
    Happy New Year!!!

  105. Love your meal plans!  Thank you and p,ease keep sharing!

  108. These meal plans are amazing! Thank you for doing these. Meal planning is so intimidating! 

  109. Thank you so much for adding breakfast and lunch! I often struggle with those two and appreciate the addition!

  110. I can’t believe I have been getting this in my email for 6 months and just saving them to recipes! I finally read one today on a rare day off and its exactly what I need! Bless you!

  111. I too love the meal plan and shopping list!  This gives me a variety of new ideas to cure the boredom of my weekly menu. Thank you for all you recipes and for making me a better healthy cook!

  112. Love this!  I just bought your planner to be organized for 2018.  I love It!

  113. Thank you so much for posting the meal plans. I enjoy your cookbooks too! All of your recipes I have made so far have been hits.  Please keep posting meal plans. It is so nice to have your ideas in my inbox every week, as meal planning can get a bit overwhelming at times. 

  114. Your recipes are fabulous, but your meal plans are invaluable! We LOVE them and THANK YOU!

  115. I love love love these meal plans. My hubby and toddlers gobble down every single meal that I prepare from your recipes! 

  116. Thank you Gina!!! This full meal plan with breakfasts and lunches helps me tremendously with planning for the week!!! 

  117. Friday’s breakfast is 2 hard boiled eggs for 4 SP. Under the new WW Freestyle program, eggs are now 0 SP. Love your recipes – everything I have tried is a keeper!

  118. I thought non-fat Greek yogurt is now zero points. You have it listed as 2 points. Can you explain? Thanks for all your great recipes!!

  119. I agree that having a complete meal plan is fantastic. The dinners are great but adding in breakfast and lunch makes meals so easy. The added shopping list is so helpful. I got your cookbook for Christmas and have already added so many recipes to our meals. I have also switched many brands based on your blog-my favorite is DeLallo and I hope you get rewarded for all these recommendations.Keep up the amazing work and know what an inspiration you are to so many!

  120. Wow. You have done all of the work. Thank you for helping to get the new year off to a great start. I have been an avid fan for years and now that both my children cook for themselves they use your recipes also. So from my family to yours – THANK YOU AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!

  121. Love your meal plans and I use them as a guide when creating meals for my family’s preferences! I am so happy you included the new WW  points because I’m sure I’m not the one having trouble with the transition. I have been using your recipes daily since 2012, so will you be updating your other recipes?  

  122. You have changed my weight watchers journey and life. For a single mother of two that works two jobs this is absolutely wonderful and I would love to see more of these. Thank you so so so much for creating these. 

  123. Love this plan and I am excited to kick off the new year with it. I’m going to swap the seafood recipes to one of your others like air fry pork chops because of preference and what’s in my freezer. I am huge fan of your site and meal plans!!! It helps so much.

  124. Please continue to share your weekly meal plans! They give me new and healthy recipes that I can share with my family.

  125. Please continue the meal planners. It is very helpful. Thanks. 

  126. Thank you. Looking forward to cooking.

  127. Love the meal plans; please continue! DH and I have enjoyed everything we have tried and I have lost a lb.

    I ordered your meal planner a couple weeks ago. Using it and your plans has 2018 looking good with much easier planning and healthier eating.
    Thank you!

  128. While I don’t don’t always following them exactly, I LOVE your meal plans!  They inspire the meal plans I need to make. And I LOVE the new format!!!!  Thank you!

  129. Gina this is amazing! I use your meal plans! I do have one question though: why are eggs 4 points and nonfat Greek yogurt 2? I thought they were zero on Freestyle? 

  130. Thank you so much for the weekly plans. I look forward to them every week. Your Skinnytaste spiral bound meal planner came from Amazon two weeks ago and I already am filling in the first week with all of the dinner recipes. Husband and I go our separate ways for breakfast and lunch, M-F, but will do some of the breakfast and lunch ideas for the weekend! This is a lot of work on your part and we do appreciate it. Also, I am a WW lifetime member with a sustaining loss of 110 pounds, so really love the smart points listed! Happy New Years!

  131. I love all your meal plans, they are very helpful!!

  132. Please continue sharing your weekly meal plans! I always look at them and take away from them the recipes my family will enjoy eating. Your plan is a must for me in maintaining my weight and feeding my family heaalthy options.

  133. Your recipes are wonderful!  Thank you so much!  Question:  Are the Freestyle points listed somewhere else?  I put the Turkey Chili Taco Soup into my recipe builder on my WW app and it’s coming out to 1 point per serving.

    • They should all be freestyle. I actually just went back into recipe builder and changed the taco seasoning and now I get 2 SP. 19 for the turkey and 1 for the seasoning.

  134. Yes, Please continue to send these meal plans! You’ve just made my life so much easier!!

  135. I don’t use the meal plans as a planner, but they always inspire me to shop for and make your recipes. Seeing a week’s worth of meals really helps me to visualize how tasty healthy cooking can be. and the 25 lbs that I’ve lost so far is a tribute to your meals.

  136. I use your meal plans every week… Sort of. I live alone so to follow the meal plan as written would be far too much food for me! But I am also terrible at making decisions and planning ahead. You have so many delicious recipes that unless I have a specific craving, there are just too many options for me sometimes. But the meal plan narrows it down so that I can easily make a few choices. The weeks in the past when I decided I didn’t need the meal plan, I ended up living out of drive-thru windows. Never again! Thanks for your help, Gina!

  137. Please continue posting the weekly meal planner, recipes and shopping list. Your recipes are delicious and your meal plans make life so much easier for me. Thank you for the hard work you out in to this.

  138. I LOVE this! Especially for the first week of the new year. Thank you for the grocery list as that helps so much. Excited to start off the year right!

  139. I like your new comprehensive meal plan for 2018. It arrived at a time when I was thinking on how to start the new year on a healthier note. THANKS.

    Do these arrive every Sunday?

  140. Please continue the meal plans. Since I’m not very creative being told what goes good together is an enormous help. Plus everything is soooo good. Thank you for this blog.

  141. For someone like me who is unorganized, your meal plans are very helpful.  It helps me to plan what we are eating all week, and makes food shopping a lot easier.  I look forward to receiving this each week. Hopefully it will eliminate us eating out all the time or ordering in because I don’t know what to make for dinner.  Thank you! Wishing you a Happy, Healthy 2018!

  142. I love Skinnytaste and your recipes!  But I was disappointed when I looked at the weeekly recipes that were posted today for 2018 because the Weight Watchers point counts were not up-to-date with the new program.  For example, eggs no longer have points.  Nor does non-fat plain Greek yogurt.  Hopefully you will update your recipes with point counts that are correct for the new Weight Watchers program.

  143. Thank you for these meal plans.  I love them, and use them quite often. I don’t use it exactly as it’s written, but it’s a great guide and idea starter. 

  144. Thank you for including breakfast and lunch options.  This should help a lot of us get back on track.

  145. I look at your meal plans/weekly meal plan every week when I get the email with the weekly meal plan I feel like it’s Christmas! You are an amazing and inspiring woman and I am in love with your entire blog and recipes! A lot of people charge so much for this stuff, and with me coming from a good/nutrition background, I know how much work and planning goes into each meal and day. Thank you so much and I can’t wait to start meal prepping for this week!

  146. I also have a question on the points.  Isn’t the nonfat Greek yogurt 0  points now too? Along with the eggs?

  147. I cannot say how unbelievably helpful your meal plans are!!! Meal planing and points calculation is so time consuming for me. Thank you for making my week sooooo much easier!

  148. I LOVE your meal plans and most definitely use them! Thank you!!

  149. You are the awesomest! This is incredibly generous and helpful! Thank you! Happy New Year!

  150. Love, love, love the complete meal plans. So convienant that you have the plan, calories/WW points, recipies and grocery list in one place! Loving it!!! Thanks Gina!

  151. Thank you for sharing.  Your menu looks awesome and very doable.  Please continue to share.  

    Additionally, I love your cookbook “The Skinny Taste” and plan to purchase your newest one soon.  Is there a resource that could help update the recipes to the new Freestyle points?

    Again, thank youu!

  152. I will definitely be using this meal plan for my husband and myself. Love the grocery lists and how you use your leftovers in the plan as we hate to let anything go to waste. Thank you for this! We are huge fans of your recipes and meal plans. 

  153. Thanks for sharing! I don’t use the meal plans as a whole, but rather for inspiration for what I should make for the week.

    So, to answer your question – I definitely use it, just not the way it’s intended.

  154. Thank you for providing the weekly meal plan. It provides the structure I need for providing healthy meals for the family.

  155. Gina! You rock! I’m a healthy cooking newbie and have loved using recipes from your first cookbook and website to gain kitchen confidence.  Doing a preplanned week is the next summit to tackle!  

  156. This meal plan is awesome! I love having a place to start each week and really appreciate the grocery list. Thank you

  157. Thank you for sharing! This is great!

  158. Please keep sharing them! My husband and I have a higher calorie allowance than shown here (I aim for 1400ish and he aims for 1800ish) so these meal plans are perfect for us to use and add snacks to! 🙂

  159. Yes! Using this, please keep sharing!!!!

  160. Waiting for new plan for new year. I love to be surprised by your meal plan. It’s time to go to the groceries.

  161. Thank you for posting the meal plans. They help my husband and I make great meals for our family the entire week.

  162. Meal plan is so extremely helpful…you make it so easy..no thinking!! This will motivate me to start fresh this new year!!

  163. Thanks for this! I sometimes struggle with finding new, still-healthy recipes and these plans give me good ideas for meal planning for myself and my husband!

  164. Yes, please keep sharing your meal plans! I look every week for them. 

  165. I recently found your website and having been using your meal plans. They’ve made it much less work for me to find healthy, new recipes that adults and three young kids enjoy. I also enjoy your cookbooks. Thanks for sharing the meal plans and I hope that you continue to!

  166. Loving these meal plans! Thank you for sharing! I’m 

  167. As someone else mentioned, eggs and nonfat Greek yogurt are both 0 points. Just an FYI so you can update as necessary. Love all your recipes! Been making them for years! 

  168. Love the meal plans, it really helps me budget my WW points and everything is yummy. Thanks, Gina!

  169. So what do you spend the minimum remaining 11 or more points on ??

  170. I love the meal plans with the grocery lists. Definitely keep posting them. I got my Instant Pot today and am researching air fryers now. Just a note: hard boiled eggs are O FSP so that day is really low in points but I know how I will take care of that. Thanks again and I really like your blog.

  177. I look forward to your Neal plans and am loving the addition of breakfast and lunch.

  178. This is really helpful. Thank you! I’m feeling a bit intimidated by the new WW plan and it’s so nice to see a full week. Question about Friday’s breakfast: aren’t the eggs 0 points now? You have them listed as 4.

  179. Please continue sharing these every week! This is the perfect solution to help me finally stick to my health goals for 2018!
