7-day healthy eating plan

The weather is getting cooler and autumn is in the air. Use the end of summer while it’s there! And in case you missed it, I’ve announced the new Skinnytaste Meal Planner for pre-order! And by the way, are you following Skinnytaste on Tiktok? I post recipes from my books and blog and even some recipes that aren’t posted anywhere, they just end up being my dinner!

Why should everyone plan a meal?

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 will help you achieve your goals!

About the menu

If you’re new to my meal plans, I’ve shared these free, flexible, 7-day, healthy meal plans (you can check out my previous meal plans here) which are meant as a guide and give you plenty of wiggle room. Add drinks, fruit, snacks, desserts, wine, etc. or swap recipes for meals you prefer. You can search for recipes by courses in the index. You should aim for around 1500 calories * per day.

There is also a concise, organized shopping list that makes grocery shopping so much easier and less stressful. Save money and time. You eat out less, waste less food and have everything you need to keep track of things on hand.

Finally, if you are on Facebook join my Skinnytaste Facebook community where everyone who shares photos of the recipes they make can join here. I love all the ideas that everyone is sharing! If you’d like to be added to the email list, subscribe here so you don’t miss a meal!


Breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday are designed for 1 person, while dinner and all meals on Saturday and Sunday are designed for a family of 4. Some recipes are enough for two nights or lunch the next day. While we truly believe that there is no one-size-fits-all diet, we’ve done our best to find something that would appeal to a wide variety of people. Everything is Weight Watchers friendly, I’ve added the updated WW Blue SP for your convenience. You can swap out any recipes you want or just use them for inspiration!

The grocery list is comprehensive and contains everything you need to prepare all of the meals on the plan. I’ve even included brand recommendations for products that I love and use often. Check your closets because there are a lot of spices you will be using often, so you may already have lots of them.

And last but not least, this menu is flexible and realistic. There are a lot Room for cocktails, healthy snacks, desserts and dinners. And if necessary, there are a few things you can postpone to make it work with your schedule. Please let me know if you use these plans. This will help me decide whether to keep sharing them!
