Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! A few notes, I will be doing a book signing in Long Island, Sunday, December 9, 2018 from Noon – 2:00 p.m. at Stew Leonard’s, 1897 Front Street, East Meadow, NY. Hope to see some of you there!

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!

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. If breakfast and lunch is designed for 1, is the shopping list also set up this way?

  2. Thank you for making these meal plans! I love them and use them every week. Just an FYI, (unless I missed it), I don’t think the grocery list has sweet potatoes on it for the air fryer sweet potato recipe. Otherwise, I had everything I needed!

  3. These are very helpful for my homeschool family. We eat 3 meals a day at home and it gets very tiring to have to meal plan all the time. Thanks for pouring your talents into this for us all.

  4. Next week will be my first following your meal plans. This looks like exactly the structure and style I have been searching for. Thank you so much for putting these together!

  5. I LOVE these meal plans. So many great seasonal ideas!

  6. Love them thank you

  7. I use these every week, please continue to share. All of your recipes are fantastic and much appreciated!

  8. Are the meals and grocery list for 2 people or a meal plan for one person?

  9. Wow I’ve been looking for something like this. Thank you so much for doing this.

  10. Thank you so much for the meal plans because it’s my least favorite thing to do. PLEASE keep them coming.

  11. I’m so glad that I found your website.  I have made the slower cooker salsa chicken with black beans and corn.  So easy to make and it was delicious.  I also made the turkey meatballs and served them over cauliflower rice.  Again it was so good.  Excited to try your week of menus and it is so helpful to have the weight watcher points included.

    Thank you

  12. Thank you so much for creating these meal plans! I’ve been struggling to get back on track with weight watchers and these are just what I needed to start fresh! Meal planning is the bane of my existence and to not only have a full planned schedule of meals with freestyle smart points already calculated but a FULL CATEGORIZED GROCERY LIST  to go with it??!! It’s truly unbelievable, you’re seriously making a great difference in so many peoples lives!

  13. I love the Meal Plans! Thank you!

  14. Your Minestrone is one of our favorite recipes!

  15. I made the spaghetti squash in a casserole this week and its SO GOOD. Thank you!!

  16. These are the best! The food is delicious and the plan makes it so convenient. Thank you for putting these together.

  17. I love love love your meal plans. They’ve made cooling enjoyable again! Thank you so much!

  18. We love these meal plans! We pick and choose depending on what we have on hand – for instance, we had the enchiladas tonight but used leftover turkey. My boys (2 and 7) loved them! 

  19. It’s Tuesday afternoon, we just got back from a Thansksgiving road trip, and now I’m trying to figure out what we can eat the rest of the week. I love knowing I can come here and get a menu full of recipes my picky husband and I will both love. Thank you for this invaluable resource in my healthy journey!

  20. Bang right out of the gate 😀 That Monday dinner was the bomb! Minestrone and salad with a healthy bread. Can’t wait for the rest of the week 😀 (I am missing romaine but spinach is subbing beautifully.) Thank you for doing these Meal Plans. No one is sick at my house 😀

  21. I love these meal plans! The grocery list is so helpful.

    Question – what are your favorite healthy snacks? Snacks are my downfall!

  22. I work full time, have toddlers, and weight lift. My friend gave me your cookbook and we fell in love with the recipes (and the macro ratios), but we were having trouble tying it altogether. I followed your meal plan to a tee, and it has been soooo helpful!! I truly appreciate the effort you put into this and look forward to buying more of your cookbooks for inspiration. Also, I filled my cart with the long list of ingrendients dreading checking out thinking I would go way over budget, I stayed right under my weekly grocery budget and was able to buy healthy high quality ingredients 🙂 

  23. Love these meal plans and appreciate the work you put in to share these.  This is my “go to” recipe site.  I love the “extra” you give with each recipe as well.  Thanksgiving included 3 recipes – Brussels Sprouts Gratin, Mushroom Risotto (I used Jalapeño wine!) and the Instant Pot recipe for hardboiled eggs (who knew that would be so easy!).  Thank you!!

  24. Hi Gina! I just wanted you to know I love your meal plans!! I don’t necessarily follow it to a t, but I use it to discover more recipes! It also helps me balance my carbs, fats, and carbs across all three meals, and really helps me add variety to my diet. Thank you so much for sharing!!

  25. Hi! I absolutely love your blog and come to you weekly for recipes!! I was wondering if you could share again those colorful pots and pans that you use that are nonstick, I think you made eggs with them a few weeks ago on Instastories. If you wouldn’t mind letting me know that would be great! ?

  26. PLEASE keep doing these meal plans. On the weeks where I don’t have one of your meal plans I find it super difficult to follow along with weight watchers. Even though I might switch out some recipes it is so helpful to have these plans to get a base from

  27. It is insane how time consuming it must be to put these together each week! And the fact I can just print off the grocery list you’ve already put together? Brilliant. I stumbled upon two of your recipes before I saw your meal plans. The recipes were fantastic and I can’t wait to follow your meal plans! Being 4 weeks post partum, they are a lifesaver – for both saving me A LOT of time, and (hopefully) helping to shed the rest of this baby weight. THANK YOU for sharing your recipes and taking the time to put them together as detailed meal plans every. single. week. My family, who is sick of eating the same stuff on rotation each week, will be delighted and thanks you as well 🙂

  28. I love your food plans with recipes.  So convenient and easy to fix quickly.  We enjoy your clean eating way.❤️

  29. Romaine Lettuce has been recalled so i would choose a different lettuce.   

  30. I’m new to your site but heard about these meal plans from a friend. They look fantastic! Thank you for the hard work it takes to put together. 

  31. Thank you for sharing these meal plans! I love them. They’re the perfect set up for stay at home moms imo. I love the opportunity to try new recipes/foods that we normally wouldn’t. 🙂 Happy Holidays!
