7 Day Healthy Meal Plan

Ash Wednesday is this week, so if you are looking for meatless meals check out Lenten friendly recipes with some of my favorites like Garlic Shrimp, Broccoli and Cheese Twice Baked Potatoes or Baby Pasta Shells with Asparagus and Marinara Sauce.

One of the best ways to keep your healthy, homemade eating habits on track is to plan and prepare ahead! These weekday meal prep plans will help you do just that. We’ve sorted through 100’s of recipes to bring you 5 days worth of weekday breakfast, lunch and dinner ideas that are easy to put together, delicious and great on-the-go. In addition to the awesome recipes you’ll also find a full game-plan on how to prep these dishes ahead, what to make when, and storage tips.

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 Weight Watchers website where you can see the WW points and add it to your day (US only, you must be logged into your account). All cookbook recipes in the cookbook index are finally updated!

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!
