7 Day Healthy Meal Plan

I had a great vacation over the holidays with my family and I hope all of you were able to spend time with those you love! Being on vacation doesn’t usually equal staying on track, but sometimes that’s OK!! Everything in moderation, and Trying new things and new foods are so much fun. Now that I am back home I am hitting the gym, getting out and walking and trying to get 1 cup of veggies with every meal. Meal prepping helps me stay on track for busy days with recipes like Meal Prep Breakfast Taco Scramble, Greek Chickpea Salad and Food Cart-Style Chicken Salad With Sauce.

With grocery prices soaring, many of us are having to adjust, scale back and/or get more creative with our meals. One of the absolute BEST ways to stay within a budget and maintain healthy eating habits is to MEAL PLAN.

A note about WW Personal Points:

I am in the process of updating all the recipes to reflect the new WW program, points will display under the recipe title. I will keep the orange button in the recipe card, 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 also 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 foodcoffee, beverages, fruits, snacks, dessert, wine, etc. or swap recipes out for meals you prefer, you can search for recipes by course in the index. Depending on your goals, you should aim for at least 1500 calories* per day. There’s no one size fits all, this will range by your goals, your age, weight, etc.

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 me 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 listyou can subscribe here so you never miss a meal plan!
