Free 7 Day Healthy Meal Plan

With rising food prices, many of us are forced to adjust, cut back, and/or get more creative with our meals. MEAL PLANNING is one of the very BEST methods to keep on budget while maintaining good eating habits.

About The Meal Plan

If you’re new to my meal plans, I’ve been sharing these free, 7-day flexible healthy meal plans that are meant to be a guide, with plenty of room for you to add more food, coffee, beverages, fruits, snacks, dessert, wine, and so on, or swap recipes out for meals you prefer; you can search for recipes by course in the index. Depending on your goals, strive for at least 1500 calories* each day. There is no one-size-fits-all solution; it will depend on your goals, age, weight, and other factors.

There’s also a detailed, structured grocery list to make grocery shopping more easier and less stressful. Save your money and time. You will eat out less frequently, waste less food, and have everything you need on hand to help you stay on track.

Finally, if you’re on Facebook, please join my Easy and delicious family recipes Facebook Community, where everyone is posting images of dishes they’re creating. You can join here. I love all of the ideas that everyone is providing! If you want to be on the email list, subscribe here so you never miss a meal plan!
