Meal Plan

Ready to get back on track? Let’s do it! Have you seen my post of the Top 25 Most Popular Skinnytaste recipes of 2019 ? Did you favorite make it?

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 completed 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 2020! 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. My daughter had showed me your website because I am new to WW and I was stressing how to do a meal plan, with a shopping list and being able to order the groceries was a double plus. I have used one week and it was easy for me. it lessened my stress load. It also helped me in my mind on where to start and what to eat. You have recipes that are easy for me to understand and ingredients that I usually have on hand. I had found that on many healthy eating websites, they would not work for me because I never buy what they have and have not heard of some of them. I was reading this meal menu and saw where you asked for us to comment. I am definitely going to continue to use your meal plans. You work so hard on these and spent so many hours on these. And then to go back and change the points on all your recipes when WW changes their plans. Thank you for doing this for people like me who get overwhelmed and quit. This is one less stumbling block that I have and it makes it so easy for me. I am now excited to go online and look at your plans and recipes. THANK YOU

  2. I have been wanting to try your meal plans for a while and guess what! I am gonna start this week!! I can’t wait!! Thanks so much! I also have your book and love your recipes!! 

  3. I’m loving these meal plans! Thank you so much for sharing them!

  4. these meal plans are amazing! please keep it up!

  5. thank you thank you thank you
    these meal plans are awesome.
    you make my life so civilised
    appreciate all your time that you take to do these, it does not go by un- noticed.
    have a great day.

  6. Thank you for these meal plans! They are awesome!

  7. I am brand new to these.  Do you post on Sundays? I love the whole idea. I am excited about breakfast and lunch being included and the dinners look fantastic. Both my husband and I can’t wait to get started. 

  8. Please, please, please keep publishing a weekly meal plan! And take a breath, because this is going to be long…

    I am a very loyal fan of yours. I’d say 90% of my cooking is with your recipes. I’ve bought all your cookbooks, even though I’ve only used one recipe from them – I prefer the convenience of the online content (I frequently do my meal planning at the last minute during lunch at work).

    Given that I have used your recipes nearly exclusively for years now, how did I not know you I didn’t even know you did meal plans!!! I have said a million times that, while I love cooking, I hate meal planning. I BEG my husband to suggest dinner menus. For some reason, I discovered the meal plans last weekend and started using it immediately! There are just two of us, so I didn’t make all the dinners, meals, but my goodness everything has been great. I’m giving the kale/potato recipe a try tonight (simmering as I type!). I usually make a much more caloric version of this so I’m looking forward to trying this.

    While I initially started using your recipes because they are delicious, I am now trying to actually lose weight (joined WW last month) and man did I succeed this week – all because of what you do. Love your site and recommend your recipes to anyone that will listen. I have never been disappointed by any recipe – my absolute favorite is the naked Persian turkey burgers! which oddly enough is the one recipe I’ve used from your cookbooks, which now gives me pause about not using them further… Also, the chicken enchilada soup is a staple in my house year round).

    And finally, I feel like I spent less this week at the grocery than I have in a LONG time. Budget friendly, weight loss friendly, and delicious. What more could we want from you? Well, I’d like to go to Greece with you next time, but I’m trying to be realistic. 😀

  9. My husband is working on his blood sugar, I am working on my weight, and one of my kiddos is gluten free. Your menus somehow meet all our requirements and are delicious as well! Thank you thank you!

  10. This weeks meal plan was so delicious!  So far I have cooked everything as you have recommended on the day you recommended.  All amazing! My husband said the pork chops and Parmesan green beans was on par with a restaurant dinner.  Thanks for making meal planning so much easier for me. Please keep them coming!

  11. I love these meal plans and sincerely hope you can continue to develop and share them. I feel so much healthier, prepared, and I am able to enjoy meals again.

    Thank you!!!

  12. These recipes are wonderful! We mixed it up last night and had the pork chops and green beans last night at the request of my 5 yr old. He can be a picky eater but he loved it. Thank you for sharing!

  13. Thank you for your posts and recipes! I’m new to WW and noticed many of the members referencing your site.  Please continue to post. They are very helpful!

  14. HI! Quick question about the grocery list: how many people does this feed? Should I adjust what I’m purchasing to accommodate a family of 2 (and an infant) by doubling the amount? Or halving the amount? Or leaving it as is? Thanks!

    • 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. 🙂

  15. Love your plans, please keep posting.!  You have some of the most flavorful, low calorie recipes I have found!  The meal plan helps me not have to “think” about what to take to work for breakfast and lunch.

  16. Thank you for doing this every week. My family enjoys all your wonderful recipes 😀

  17. Thank you so much for these meal plans, my husband is struggling with his weight and I think this will be perfect for him to try. I use your recipes a few dinners a week just to keep us on track and they are all delicious. Thank you!!!!

  18. I have lost 18 pounds and my husband has lost 25. These meal plans have given us the guidance we desperately needed. The recipes are creative, easy to follow and delicious. Thank you for putting these together each week.

  19. Thank you so much for making these plans! I am just starting to use them and for real they make life so much easier and everything tastes great!

  20. Please keep making these meal plans! These are so helpful!

  21. I can’t seem to find the grocery list.  There is usually a link to click and for some reason I did not get the email.  Can you please let me know where to find it ASAP 

  22. Thank you Gina! Just did my grocery shopping today using your list. Can’t wait for another week of delicious and healthy meals!!!

  23. Love this! Thanks for the ideas!

  24. Please keep posting! I love these meal plans. The only thing I would prefer is if the macros for the day would be listed.

  25. Please keep posting! My family loves these meal plans, they make healthy meal planning so easy and delicious

  26. Thank you so much for changing them all over to fit WW new plan! You’re the best! I’ve been an avid follower of yours  and lover of ALL your recipes for years but have recently fallen off track! I just joined WW on the purple plan! So this will make life super easy!!

  27. Yes, please keep posting! I enjoy seeing your ideas and it often reminds me of some of your older recipes. Thank you for putting these together! 

  28. Gina, these recipes look great! It’s awesome to see so many delicious recipes in one place.
