You also save time and money in the supermarket! And of course, planning ahead helps you stick to your goals!About The Meal PlanIf 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!Also, if you don’t have the Skinnytaste Meal Planner, now would be a great time to get one to get organized for 2020! There was a print error last year, but it’s perfect now! You can order it here!THE DETAILS:Breakfast and lunch Monday-Friday, are designed to serve 1 while dinners and all meals on Saturday and Sunday are designed to serve a family of 4. Some recipes make enough leftovers for two nights or lunch the next day. While we truly believe there is no one size fits all meal plan, we did our best to come up with something that appeals to a wide range of individuals. Everything is Weight Watchers friendly, I included the updated WW Blue SP for your convenience, feel free to swap out any recipes you wish or just use this for inspiration!The grocery list is comprehensive and includes everything you need to make all meals on the plan. I’ve even included brand recommendations of products I love and use often. Cross check your cabinets because many condiments you’ll notice I use often, so you may already have a lot of them.And last, but certainly not least, this meal plan is flexible and realistic. There’s plenty of wiggle room for cocktails, healthy snacks, dessert and dinner out. And if necessary, you can move some things around to make it work with your schedule. Please let me know if you’re using these plans, this will help me decide if I should continue sharing them!MONDAY (6/15) B: Yogurt Chocolate Chip Muffins* (7B 8G 7P) and a banana (0B 0G 0P) L: Chicken Club Lettuce Wrap Sandwich (5B 7G 5P) and a peach (0B 0G 0P) D: Margarita Pizza (6B 7G 6P) with 2 cups arugula (0B 0G 0P) with 1 tablespoon light balsamic vinaigrette (1B 1G 1P)Totals: WW Points 19B 23G 19P, Calories 893**TUESDAY (6/16) B: Yogurt Chocolate Chip Muffins (7B 8G 7P) and a banana (0B 0G 0P) L: Chickpea Avocado Salad (3B 8G 3P) D: Steak Taco Lettuce Wraps (4B 4G 4P) with Mexican Cauliflower “Rice” (1B 1G 1P) Totals: WW Points 15B 21G 15P, Calories 849**WEDNESDAY (6/17) B:  Yogurt Chocolate Chip Muffins (7B 8G 7P) and a banana (0B 0G 0P) L: Chickpea Avocado Salad (3B 8G 3P) D: Pasta with Italian Chicken Sausage, Escarole and Beans (9B 10G 4P) Totals: WW Points 19B 26G 14P, Calories 857**THURSDAY (6/18) B: PB + J Smoothie (9B 9G 9P) L: LEFTOVER Pasta with Italian Chicken Sausage, Escarole and Beans (9B 10G 4P) D: Healthy Baked Chicken Nuggets (3B 4G 3P) with Orzo with Zucchini and Tomato (6B 6G 6P) Totals: WW Points 27B 29G 22P, Calories 876**FRIDAY (6/19) B: PB + J Smoothie (9B 9G 9P) L: LEFTOVER Pasta with Italian Chicken Sausage, Escarole and Beans (9B 10G 4P) D: 2 Baked Corn and Crab Cakes (5B 8G 4P) with Quick Cabbage Slaw (2B 2G 2P) Totals: WW Points 25B 29G 19P, Calories 826**SATURDAY (6/20) B: Omelet Tortilla Breakfast Wrap (recipe x 4) (4B 8G 4P) L: Grilled Shrimp and Watermelon Chopped Salad (6B 7G 6P) D: ORDER IN!Totals: WW Points 10B 15G 10P, Calories 608**SUNDAY (6/21) B: Strawberry Peanut Butter Swirl Smoothie Bowls (recipe x 2) (7B 7G 7P) L: Open-Faced Tuna Melt Sandwich (recipe x 2) (4B 5G 4P) and 1 cup watermelon (0B 0G 0P) D: Naked Greek Feta-Zucchini Turkey Burgers (5B 5G 5P) with 1 corn on the cob (0B 3G 0P) Totals: WW Points 16B 20G 16P, Calories 994***Make Sunday night, if desired and freeze any leftover you/your family won’t eat. **This is just a guide, women should aim for around 1500 calories per day.
