A free 7-day flexible meal plan including breakfast, lunch and dinner and a shopping list. All recipes include calories and Weight Watchers Freestyle™ SmartPoints®.

Hope everyone’s enjoying the summer! I have friends visiting from out of town, so we’ve been soaking in the beach and ocean as much as we can! Just a friendly reminder, to receive my new recipes or meal plans via email, make sure you’re signed up for my (it’s free!). Second, have you pre-ordered my cookbook Skinnytaste One and Done? It comes out Oct 9, but you can get 4 free recipes from the book now, with your pre-order. More details here!

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!

Italian Chopped Salad is my favorite quick lunch I love to whip up with ingredients I usually have on hand in my refrigerator! So simple, and can easily be modified to suit your taste.

It’s low-carb (Keto), gluten-free and easy to whip up! I make this so often, especially when I don’t plan what I am going to have for lunch that I thought I would share. This version is made with Genoa salami, mozzarella, roasted red peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers and lettuce topped with oil and red vinegar. (more…)

Although burrata—a fresh cheese made with mozzarella and cream—is undeniably the star of this light summer salad, the juicy grilled peaches and refreshing watermelon are pretty hard to resist.

This salad also happens to be gorgeous, and it comes together fast. The perfect light summer meal! You can add grilled chicken or shrimp if you want more protein.

This recipe is a sneak peak from my upcoming cookbook, Skinnytaste One and Done: 140 No-Fuss Dinners for Your Instant Pot®, Slow Cooker, Air Fryer, Sheet Pan, Skillet, Dutch Oven, and More. (more…)

Banana and Zucchini Cake

It’s zucchini season which makes me super excited to make bread and muffins with zucchini! A favorite is this Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread which my daughter loves.

“Leaving a toxic relationship and in a new and healthy one I came to the realization that I needed to finally do something for myself. I joined Weight Watchers, I found a meeting right near my job (no excuses) and dove right in, head on.”

“Food filled a void in my life for a long time. I would eat when I was happy, sad, depressed, anxious. It was an awful cycle of eating like crap, feeling awful, and then doing it all over again. Food never judged me or put me down. I used food as a way to comfort myself for many years. It wasn’t until April of 2017, two years after leaving a toxic relationship and in a new and healthy one that I came to the realization that I needed to finally do something for myself”.
