7 Day Healthy Meal Plan

I hope everyone is having great week and enjoying the holidays with your friends and family! It’s been an exciting week for me with the Skinnytaste Air Fryer Dinner Cookbook making the New York Times best sellers list! Thank you to all who have purchased a book, I hope you enjoy cooking from it as much as I enjoyed writing it!  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. Happy New Year!

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!

1 This is just a guide, women should aim for around 1500 calories per day. Here’s a helpful calculator to estimate
your calorie needs. I’ve left plenty of wiggle room for you to add more food such as coffee, beverages, fruits,
snacks, dessert, wine, etc.

2 Store leftover meat, tortillas and toppings separate and assemble the day you are going to eat.  Freeze any extra
meat you/your family won’t eat.
3 Make 3 cups extra rice for Thursday dinner.
4 Adjust serving size and ingredient amounts for all dishes accordingly if feeding a crowd.
