Free 7 Day Healthy Meal Plan

2024!!! Are you kidding me? This year seems to have flown by! I am grateful for all of the memories made, new experiences, and, of course, family and friends. Thank you for being such an important part of my year (and life!).

I’m always curious about New Year’s customs–what does your family eat for good luck on January 1st? Pork, cabbage, and kale are claimed to be on the list, indicating a “forward trajectory,” while the color green represents “money and prosperity.” Black eyed peas also represent riches, and this quick Black Eyed Pea Dip is one of my favorite dishes. Whatever custom your family follows, I wish you everyone a safe, healthy, and happy New Year!

With food costs on the rise, many of us are having to adjust, cut back, or be more creative with our meals. MEAL PLAN is one of the BEST strategies to keep on budget and maintain 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 (you can see my previous meal plans here) 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 strive for at least 1500 calories* each day, depending on your goals. There is no one-size-fits-all solution; it will depend on your goals, age, weight, and so on.

A precise, structured grocery list is also included, making grocery shopping considerably easier and less stressful. You will save money and time. You’ll eat out less frequently, waste less food, and have everything you need to stay on track.

Finally, if you’re on Facebook, you can join my Skinnytaste Facebook Community, where everyone is uploading images of dishes they’re creating. I’m really enjoying everyone’s suggestions! You may subscribe to the email list here if you want to never miss a meal plan!

Meal Plan:

Breakfast and lunch are included. Monday through Friday are meant to feed one person, while Saturday and Sunday dinners and all meals are designed to suit a family of four. Some recipes yield enough leftovers for two evenings or for lunch the following day. The grocery list is extensive and contains everything you’ll need to prepare all of the dishes on the menu.

As a general rule, ladies should aim for 1500 calories each day. Here’s a handy tool for calculating your calorie requirements. I’ve left plenty of opportunity for you to add more food items like coffee, drinks, fruits, snacks, dessert, wine, and so on Meal Plan. Green salad contains 12 cups mixed greens, 4 onions, 1 cup each of tomatoes, carrots, cucumbers, and chickpeas, and 12 cup mild vinaigrette. Set half aside with dressing on the side for dinner on Thursday.
