7 Day Healthy Meal Plan

Hope everyone had a great week! It’s been an exciting week for me with the Skinnytaste Air Fryer Dinner Cookbook that hit shelves this week! If you are getting an air fryer for Christmas, I also have tons of Air Fryer Recipes here! And don’t forget to check out Relish +, where you have the ability to adjust serving sizes for these meal plans 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. 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).

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!
