Let me know if you have any requests for next weeks 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!

PS – If you want to make your own meal plan, you can search for recipes by course in the index.

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. When do you make these recipes? How long will I know there good for?

  2. Thanks for sharing your weekly plans. I love seeking ideas of how to use common ingredients as I shop & build a plan myself. Helps this busy mama tremendously!

  3. I made the lemon/dill chicken salad with the breast of the precooked chicken, then used the legs and thighs in the chicken cacciatore. Got a large can of tuna and doubled the veggies. My daughter and I have eaten for 4 days on those three recipes plus some fruits and yogurt. Thanks for the help and the money savings!

  4. I bought the cookbook a long time ago, and am going back through in an attempt to get back to eating more healthy! I found the meal plans and I am so thankful! Thank you so much for taking time to do these. So amazing.

  5. These are a lifesaver! Thanks so much!!

  6. Just downloaded this meal plan. I meal prepped and am ready to go for the week. Thank you Gina! Please keep posting these. I can imagine how much time it takes but you’re a true lifesaver 🙂

  7. I was JUST told about you and these plans… SO EXCITED! THANK YOU!

  8. Your meal plans are awesome, your photos are awesome. YOU are awesome Gina. Meal plans have given me structure and lots of great recipes. Please continue!  I’m finally over the plateau. I cook for husband and 94 year old mother who lives on her own but loved the stuffed eggplant parm (so did I) boats and your western omelette muffins and just about everything! Thank you. And how about your take on icebox cake. 

  9. Love these, definitely using them so please continue to post them!!

  10. LOVE your recipe for Spinach ricotta tomato quiche! I made it for my hubby and I, great weekday or weekend breakfast, thank you for inspiring me with new ideas!!!

  11. I am trying your meal plan for the first time this week!  So far, I’m in love.  The chicken salad was so good!! And I am a huge fan of mayo based chicken salad…. Now to see how my carnivorous husband will rate the mushroom burgers!

  12. I have only just realised that the weekly meal plans that I get in my inbox have a printable shopping list too – I have started using as of today and will be following this avidly for the next few months as it really helps not to have to meal plan. SO grateful for you taking the time to do this as all the recipes are brilliant and I don’t have a fussy family. I feed 4 plus, on occasion, students we host from abroad, who they always seem to like the recipes too. I have shared your website and recipes far and wide! I live in Edinburgh, Scotland, and find the recipes very do-able even though I sometimes have to Google the equivalent ingredient names here!

  13. Absolutely LOVE the meal plans! With 3 under 5, I am constantly busy. Having healthy meals planned with a grocery list saves me SO much time! You’ve given me precious play time with my littles. 🙂 Thank you!!! 

  14. LOVE the meal plans! My 16 year old daughter and I enjoy making them together and both of us have lost weight while having fun! Please keep the meal plans coming! Thanks!!

  15. Hi Gina,
    I know this may be a lot to ask, but is there any way the meal plans can be posted /emailed  either Friday or Saturday?  I work during the week- normally put together my meal plan on Fri night and then shop over the weekend. Sometimes I can squeeze some meals in with ingredients on hand but usually I use this weeks meal plan items the following week. Not a horrible thing, but would be nice to be along on the ride at the same time as everybody else. AnywY, just food for thought.?

  16. Gina, I just started counting calories (again) and your meal plans have been a LIFE SAVER (and changer!). Thank you for making these available. It is so helpful to be able to quickly see what I am going to make to feed my family AND stay within my calorie goal. Last week was my 1st week of tracking food and I was able to lose 3 of my 15 lb goal. I know I wouldn’t have been that successful without the help of your meal plans! Thank you!

  17. The menu plans are very helpful to me, thanks for taking the time to put them together!

  18. Although I absolutely love your meal plans, can you include some kid friendly meals as well? Please?

  19. Love your meal plans and recipes. As a longtime weight watcher and recent vegetarian I find them very helpful. Thank you for your inspiration.

  20. Just found your website, thank you for the free weekly meal plans! Also for all the GF options!! I’m so excited to eat healthier, simpler, and try some new meals this week!

  21. Love the meal plans!

  22. We’d love the chicken Tzatziki bowl on the menu! It’s an incredible recipe!

  23. I made my own meal plan this week using all of your recipes!  It will be a week of grilling and one night I will attempt that AMAZING looking quiche.  I have never made quiche so I am a bit nervous.  I love your recipes. I have both of your cookbooks and will order the next one!  

  24. Love your weekly recipes
