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 thing I love about fall – soups! Especially when I can plan ahead for busy nights – I know everyone’s schedule is insane – school is back, the kids are having practice, soccer games, etc – all fun things but still time consuming! I love a soup that is thrown in a slow cooker in the morning and ready when you get home, like my lasagna soup, or one that can be whipped in an instant pot, like my Chunky Beef, Cabbage and Tomato Soup .

These are all free every week, but I know it’s not one size fits all. If you were willing to pay a small monthly fee to make them vegetarian, gluten free, etc. what would you hope for?

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! Check out my new Skinnytaste Meal Planner which is available for pre-order now!

About the menu

If you’re new to my meal plans, I’ve 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 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 e-mail list, subscribe here so you don’t miss a meal plan!

THE DETAILS:

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 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 a lot of them.

And last but not least, this menu is flexible and realistic. There is 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!
