7 Day Healthy Meal Plan

The temperatures are getting cooler, the air is getting fresh – autumn is here! This is one of my favorite times of the year !! I love picking apples and making homemade apple butter and apple sauce and who doesn't love pumpkin !!? Check out my super easy pumpkin pie dip. Yum !! The deephealing Meal Prep Cookbook was also put on the NYT bestseller list again this week, thank you! If you'd like to order a signed copy, Barnes and Noble sells a signed copy!

Why should everyone have a meal plan?

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 stick to your goals!

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 wiggle room for you to add more food, coffee , Drinks, fruit, snacks, desserts, wine, etc. or swap recipes for meals that you prefer. You can search for recipes by course 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'll eat out less, waste less food, and have everything you need on hand to keep up to date.

If you're on Facebook join my deephealing Facebook community where everyone is sharing photos of the recipes they make. Here you can sign up. I love all the ideas that everyone shares! If you'd like to be added to the email list, sign up here so you don't miss a meal!

If you don't have the deephealing meal planner, now is a good time to organize one for 2020! There was a misprint last year, but now it's perfect! You can order it here!

THE DETAILS:

Breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday are designed for 1 person, while dinner and all meals on Saturday and Sunday are for a family of 4. Some recipes have enough leftovers for two nights or lunch the next day. While we firmly believe that there is no one size fits all menu, we've done our best to develop something that would appeal to a wide range of people. Everything is Weight Watchers friendly. I've included the updated WW Blue SP for your convenience. You can swap out any recipes you want or just use them as inspiration!

The grocery list is comprehensive and contains everything you need to make all of the meals on the plan. I've even included brand recommendations for products that I love and use often. Check your cabinets as you will find that I use a lot of spices frequently so you may already have a lot of them.

And last but not least, this meal plan is flexible and realistic. There is a lot of Room for cocktails, healthy snacks, dessert and dinner. And if necessary, there are a few things you can postpone to make it work with your schedule. Please let me know if you are using these plans. This helps me decide whether to keep sharing them.
