Posted April 16, 2021 by Gina

A free 7-day flexible weight loss meal plan with breakfast, lunch, dinner and a shopping list. All recipes contain macros and WW points.

7 Day Healthy Meal Plan

When the world is getting “normal” again, that means more sports and activities after school – getting busy again (I’m not complaining)! But to keep my sanity, I love being able to rely on slow cooker recipes (throw them in in the morning and they’re ready when you get home), like my Crock Pot Italian Sloppy Joe. The same applies to recipes for preparing meals – such as breakfast egg rolls. Just warm them up and hit those crazy mornings.

Why should everyone have a 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 will help you stick to your goals!

About the menu

If you’re new to my meal plans I have shared these free, flexible 7-day healthy meal plans (you can see my previous meal plans here) that serve as a guide and leave plenty of wiggle room for you to add more groceries, coffee, Add drinks, fruit, snacks, desserts, wine, etc. or swap recipes for meals you prefer. You can search for recipes by course in the index. You should aim for around 1500 calories * per day.

There is also a concise, organized grocery list that makes grocery shopping so much easier and less stressful. Save money and time. You eat less, waste less food, and have everything you need on hand to keep up-to-date.

If you’re on Facebook join my Skinnytaste Facebook community where everyone is sharing photos of the recipes they make. You can sign up here. I love all of the ideas that everyone shares! If you’d like to be added to the email list, sign up here so you don’t miss a meal!

If you don’t have the Skinnytaste Meal Planner, now is a good time to organize one for 2020! There was a misprint last year but it’s perfect now! You can order it here!

THE DETAILS:

Breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday are designed for 1 person, while dinner and all meals on Saturday and Sunday are for a family of 4. Some recipes have enough leftovers for two nights or lunch the next day. While we strongly believe that there is no one size fits all menu, we have done our best to develop something that will appeal to a wide range of people. Everything is Weight Watchers friendly. I’ve included the updated WW Blue SP for your convenience. You can swap out any recipes you want or just use them as inspiration!

The grocery list is comprehensive and contains everything you need to make all of the meals on the plan. I’ve even included brand recommendations for products that I love and use often. Check your cabinets as you will find that I use a lot of spices frequently so you may already have a lot of them.

And last but not least, this menu is flexible and realistic. There are much Room for cocktails, healthy snacks, desserts and dinners. And if necessary, there are a few things you can postpone to make it work with your schedule. Please let me know if you use these plans. This helps me decide if I should keep sharing them!
