Skinnytaste Meal Plan (January 28-February 3)

A free 7-day flexible weight loss meal plan including breakfast, lunch and dinner and a shopping list. All recipes include calories and Weight Watchers Freestyle™ SmartPoints®.

Skinnytaste Meal Plan (January 28-February 3)

Hope everyone’s enjoying the weekend. I am back on Weight Watchers tracking everything I eat (I go back to tracking anytime I need to lose a few pounds, like after a vacation or the holidays) and I’ve been sharing my daily routing on Instagram stories, if you are interested you can follow along, here is my Instagram. It’s also a year since my Dad passed, so it’s fitting to add his Czech Crepes with Berries and Cream to the meal plan this week, I grew up making them with my Dad.

And 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!

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!

  1. I just finished Day 1 of this week’s plan and let me just say that it was DELICIOUS. I can’t wait to have the mac & cheese leftovers for lunch tomorrow!

    Please please please keep doing these plans! I’m only one day in, but I’m already SUCH a huge fan!! I’m only cooking for 2, so the serving sizes are perfect with all of the leftovers we can share.

    I cannot express just how grateful I am that you put in the work to set this up for us! For FREE! Thank you so much!!

  2. Please, please, PLEASE keep doing these! I have just been turned on to your site, and i LOVE how you work. You make enough for leftovers, have a grocery list set up, and even have that list organized into sections for easy shopping. Please, do not stop doing these meal plans!
