Skinnytaste Meal Plan (August 2-8)

job July 30, 2021 by Gina

A flexible and free 7-day weight loss meal plan that includes breakfast, lunch and dinner and a shopping list. Recipes include macros and WW points.

7 day healthy meal plan

One of my favorite things about this time of summer is being able to just walk outside and pick my own veg! Here are some of my favorite summer vegetable recipes: Corn, tomato and avocado salad is definitely at the top of the list as is this simple summer tomato salad and don’t forget them. Sautéed zucchini with plum tomatoes! Fresh and easy!

Why should everyone plan their meals?

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 helps you stick to your goals!

About the meal plan

If you’re new to my meal plans, I’ve shared these flexible and free 7-day healthy meal plans (you can see my previous meal plans here) that are meant as a guide, with plenty of leeway to you add more food, coffee, drinks, fruit, snacks, dessert, wine, etc. or exchange recipes for your favorite dishes, you can search for recipes by course in the index. You should aim for around 1,500 calories * per day.

There is also an accurate and organized grocery list that will make shopping a lot easier and a lot less stressful. Save money and time. You’ll eat out less often, waste less food, and have everything you need on hand to help keep you on track.

Finally, if you are on Facebook join my Facebook Skinnytaste community where everyone shares photos of recipes they are making you can join here. I love all the ideas that everyone shares! If you want to join the mailing list, you can subscribe here so you never miss a meal plan!

Plus, if you don’t have the Skinnytaste Meal Planner, now would be a great time to get one to get you organized for 2020! There was a printing error last year, but it’s perfect now! You can order it here!


Breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday are designed to serve 1 person, while dinners and all meals on Saturday and Sunday are designed for 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 meal plan, we’ve done our best to come up with something that appeals to a wide range of people. Everything is Weight Watchers compatible, I have included the updated WW Blue SP for your convenience, feel free to swap any recipes you want or just use it for inspiration!

The grocery list is comprehensive and includes everything you need to prepare all of the meals on the plan. I’ve even included recommendations for brands of products that I like and use often. Check your cupboards because you will notice that I often use a lot of condiments, you might already have a lot of them.

And last but not least, this meal plan is flexible and realistic. There are many leeway for cocktails, healthy snacks, desserts and dining out. And if needed, you can move some things around to make it work with your schedule. Please let me know if you are using these plans, it will help me decide if I should continue to share them!
