Skinnytaste Meal Plan (May 20-May 26)

posted May 17, 2019 by Gina A free 7-day flexible weight loss meal plan including breakfast, lunch and dinner and a shopping list. All recipes include calories and WW SmartPoints®.Hi all! I am away in Italy this week, can’t wait to share my trip with you when I return but I didn’t forget you! On this plan there are options for BBQ/Potlucks on Saturday and Sunday, you may have to adjust the servings accordingly based on your needs with backyard parties and gatherings.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 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 aim for around 1500 calories* per day.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 my 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 list, you can subscribe here so you never miss a meal plan!Also, if you don’t have the Skinnytaste Meal Planner, now would be a great time to get one to get organized for 2019! There was a print error last year, but it’s perfect now! You can order it here!THE DETAILS:Breakfast and lunch Monday-Friday, are designed to serve 1 while dinners and all meals on Saturday and Sunday are designed to serve 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 size fits all meal plan, we did our best to come up with something that appeals to a wide range of individuals. Everything is Weight Watchers friendly, I included the updated Weight Watcher Freestyle Points for your convenience, feel free to swap out any recipes you wish or just use this for inspiration!The grocery list is comprehensive and includes everything you need to make all meals on the plan. I’ve even included brand recommendations of products I love and use often. Cross check your cabinets because many condiments you’ll notice I use often, so you may already have a lot of them.And last, but certainly not least, this meal plan is flexible and realistic. There’s plenty of wiggle room for cocktails, healthy snacks, dessert and dinner out. And if necessary, you can move some things around to make it work with your schedule. Please let me know if you’re using these plans, this will help me decide if I should continue sharing them!MONDAY (5/20)B: Loaded Baked Omelet Muffins (2) with 1 cup strawberries (0)L: Spiralized Greek Cucumber Salad with Lemon and Feta (7)D: Skinny Baked Broccoli Macaroni and Cheese (8) with a green salad (2)*Totals: Freestyle™ SP 19, Calories 868**TUESDAY (5/21)B: Loaded Baked Omelet Muffins (2) with an orange (0)L: LEFTOVER Skinny Baked Broccoli Macaroni and Cheese (8) with 8 carrot sticks (0)D: Low Carb Chicken Enchilada Roll Ups (5) with Warm Mexican Corn Salad (4)Totals: Freestyle™ SP 19, Calories 940**WEDNESDAY (5/22)B: Loaded Baked Omelet Muffins (2) with 1 cup strawberries (0)L: LEFTOVER Skinny Baked Broccoli Macaroni and Cheese (8) with 8 carrot sticks (0)D: Grilled Balsamic Steak with Tomatoes and Arugula (5)*** with Potato and Green Bean Salad (5)Totals: Freestyle™ SP 20, Calories 914**THURSDAY (5/23)B: Loaded Baked Omelet Muffins (2) with an orange (0)L: LEFTOVER Grilled Balsamic Steak with Tomatoes and Arugula (5) with Potato and Green Bean Salad (5)D: Grilled Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin (3) with Fiesta Bean Salad (4)Totals: Freestyle™ SP 19, Calories 1,092**FRIDAY (5/24)B: 6 ounces Greek yogurt (0) with ½ cup mixed berries (0) 1 tablespoon chopped pecans (2)L: LEFTOVER Grilled Balsamic Steak with Tomatoes and Arugula (5)* with Potato and Green Bean Salad (5)D: Basil-Parmesan Salmon (3) with ¾ cup brown rice (5) and Roasted Asparagus (0)Totals: Freestyle™ SP 20, Calories 1,035**SATURDAY (5/25)B: Whole Wheat Pancakes (5) with 1 tablespoon maple syrup (3) and 1 cup mixed berries (0)L: Naked Greek Feta-Zucchini Turkey Burgers (5) and Grilled Rainbow Peppers with Herb Cream Cheese (3)D: DINNER OUT!Totals: Freestyle™ SP 16, Calories 623**SUNDAY (5/26)B: Roasted Strawberry Banana Bread (3) and 1 cup cantaloupe (0)L: Chilled Italian Shrimp Tortellini Pasta Salad (6)D: Buffalo Turkey Cheeseburger with Blue Cheese Broccoli Slaw (8) with Low Carb Potato Salad (4)Totals: Freestyle™ SP 21, Calories 1,087***This is just a guide, women should aim for around 1500 calories per day.
