The Skinnytaste Meal Planner

I’m so excited to share The Skinnytaste Meal Planner with all of you!

I truly believe that the best way to achieve your goals is to hold yourself accountable along the way. When I began my journey a few years ago, I found that the two things that helped the most were cooking my own healthy dinners at home where I was in full control of what went into my meals and tracking everything I ate so I could see what (and how much) I was eating which helped clue me in to my eating habits and how to make better (and healthier) choices.
This journal is a daily tool to help you plan your meals and track your eating and exercise activities. It’s simple to use:
Plan your meals for the week. Make a shopping list. Go shopping! Write it down, make it happen!
The Skinnytaste Meal Planner
Track what you eat, log in your activity for each day. Plus there’s lots of great tips and positive inspiration to help you along the way. The on sale date for the meal planner is October 13th, you can pre-order this on Amazon and have it shipped to your house this week.
AND, since SO many of you have asked me to share a weekly dinner plan, I thought it would be fun to share what I plan to cook this week. (I may start making this a weekly ritual).

Skinnytaste Weekly Dinner Plan (Week 1)
Monday: Mushroom Stroganoff (Meatless Monday!)
Wednesday: Spaghetti and Meatball Soup (Madison’s favorite!)
Thursday: Sofrito Chicken Stew (My favorite!)
Saturday: Date night out!
Happy cooking!

  1. Love this site!

  2. Where can you get the planner that will email to NZ. No new ones on amazon

  3. Hello, I’m so excited to be following these meal plans. My question is how many points is each meal?  I’m not sure what weight watcher plan I’m on. Or how I would find out? 

  4. I tried to order this planner today and nobody has it???

  5. Just found your site. Thank you so much for the GREAT meal planning guide!! I’m excited to start working on it this week. Your Cauliflower soup is on the menu for tonight 🙂

  6. If I make this again, I would saute the mushrooms and reduce the amount of beef broth. The dish came out a little too soupy for stroganoff. As my son described it “basically mushsroom soup with noodles”

  7. I know your meal plans are for dinners but just wondering what do you have for breakfast and lunch? Do you strictly just write down dinners? Definitely going to buy this book! Thanks for all your wonderful recipes I have made so many of them and have loved them so much! 

  8. I am allergic to mushrooms, what can I use in place of the mushrooms?

  9. I just purchased this and two of your cookbooks from amazon. I excited to try it.

  10. I really, really love this. A friend turned me on to your sight, I bought your book last year, and I didn’t realize that you had these meal plans posted until a couple of days ago. We just started them and I went to the store yesterday. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the shopping lists and the recipes. This saves me so much time, so much money (I stick to your list…..no more aimless shopping or over-buying and wasting of produce!), and is the perfect thing to jumpstart our decision to eat better! Thank you, Gina!!

  11. Do you hve a cookbook that has the daily 52 week recipes? It sounds like you do, but I can’t figure out what the name of it is so I can order it. Help, please!

  12. Do you have any meal plans for breakfast and lunch? What about snacks?

  13. Hi I just joined WW and was looking for new recipes to try and found your site. Journal and cookbooks ordered and Ive printed the week one recipes. I was totally lost but now I feel much better since finding your site. Thanks for posting such delicious recipes.

    • Hey Karen – thanks so much for putting this list together! I know Gina started doing them for some of the later weekly meal plans, but I’m starting with this one, so I really appreciate you doing it! Cheers.

    • I wish I would’ve scrolled down to see this when I was making mine. My shopping list blew away when I got to the store lol. I then had to go home and remake one.

  15. Can't wait to try these. Love your nail polish. ?

  16. Have you thought about posting the shopping lists for the meals? I'd be willing to pay a subscription fee to be able to download the shopping list and weekly recipes…like the Fresh 20 does. Your recipes are so much better.

  17. Is there a shopping list for week 1 posted somewhere else on your site?

  18. Gina, Thank you so much for the meal plans and all of the work you put into the website, cookbook, social media. You are an amazing help on my path to better eating and a better me! You're amazing!!
