I am so exited for Spring and all the seasonal vegetables that will start being available to us! Every week, I will be adding more seasonal recipes to the list, but you can also see my Spring Recipes here for inspiration.

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 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!

  12. Just a shout out to you Gina! I am also a weight watcher and really enjoy all of your recipes. My daughter recently lost 70 pounds through cutting her calories and every morning she would ask me what was for dinner so she could plan her day of meals. I would print out the calendar and and she would put that into her fitness app. It is nice knowing what I’m doing each night for dinner and the prep time is great. Thank you again for taking the time to do this for all of us.

  13. Hello Gina!

    I just wanted to jump on here and say that I use your meal plans almost religiously – I’m a Weight Watcher and a foodie who loves to cook for my family (my husband and 4 and 6 year old who love almost everything I make from Skinnytaste). I love that you use in season ingredients in your recipes and add a lot of flavor without much fat – but just enough! I work full time as a nurse and am still able to follow most of the meal plans you publish – so its doable!! I have lost about 30 pounds by following Weight Watchers and using your meals plans to help me – some coworkers noticed and asked what I was doing, so I’m spreading my love of Skinnytaste far and wide. Just wanted to say thank you, and keep ’em coming! Also, I live in Chicago and hated to miss your recent visit here – hopefully you will come back soon!
