A free 7-day, flexible diet plan for weight loss with breakfast, lunch, dinner and a grocery list. Recipes contain macros and WW points.

7-day healthy eating plan

One of my favorite things to do this summer time is just getting outside and picking my own vegetables! Here are a few of my favorite summer vegetable recipes – corn, tomato, avocado salad is definitely high on the list, as is this simple summer tomato salad and sautéed zucchini with plum tomatoes! Fresh and Easy!

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 have shared these free, flexible, 7 day healthy meal plans (you can see my previous meal plans here) which are meant as a guide and leave plenty of scope for you to add more food, coffee, 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 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!

Even if you don’t have the Skinnytaste Meal Planner, now would be a good time to organize one for 2020! There was a misprint last year, but now it’s perfect! You can order it here!


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!
