It’s my favorite time of year! Holiday parties, friends and family gatherings, traditional holiday meals, oh my!  Whether you are hosting or bringing something to share, it’s important to have some allergy friendly meals in your back pocket. Good news!  If you visit and sign up for Relish +, you can get access to special Skinnytaste Gluten Free/Dairy Free Weekly Meal Plans, complete with correlating grocery lists AND the ability to adjust serving sizes for larger or smaller groups.

I’m also excited to share the Skinnytaste Ultimate Meal Planner is now available! The 52 week spiral bound meal planner has weekly meal planning grids you can tear out and put on your fridge if you wish, a 12-week meal plan, 30 (15 new) recipes, and tear-out grocery lists. I love starting my week with gratitude, affirmations and intentions, so I included a space for that as well. I hope you will love this as much as I do!

A note about WW Personal Points:

Lots of you are asking if I will be including the new WW Personal points on my recipes, and for now I am not sure how I can since everyone’s points are different. But for now I’m including links to my recipe builder, see the orange button to the print recipe button that says my personal points. Click on that and it takes you to the WW website where you can see the points and add it to your day (US only, you must be logged into your account). I am hoping to find a solution for adding points as I know many of you like to glance ahead at points before making something.

Why Should Everyone 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 helps you stick to your goals! Check out my new Skinnytaste Meal Planner which is now out for pre-order!

About The Meal Plan

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! If you wish to get on the email list, you can subscribe here so you never miss a meal plan!
