7 Day Healthy Meal Plan

An sweet Irish saying, “May your troubles be less and your blessings be more, and nothing but happiness come through your door”. Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I have the Instant Pot recipe on the meal plan this week but you can also check out my Corned Beef and Cabbage with Horseradish Cream, and of course Irish Soda Bread. Enjoy and please celebrate safely!

Skinnytaste Meal Prep Dinner Plans

I’ve been hearing from a lot of folks that have recently gone back to the office or are headed back soon. It’s exciting to finally feel like things are getting back to normal, but shifting routines can be overwhelming and stressful and can make it hard to maintain your healthy eating habits. To help you get back into the groove we’ve created these amazing Meal Prep Meal Plans for Relish+ that include great make-ahead breakfasts and lunches that are perfect for packing up and taking on the go. There are also dinner plans where you do the majority of the prep on the weekend, so you can still eat well on busy weeknights. And remember, with Relish+ you can customize the plans, get shopping lists and you can even order all of the ingredients from your favorite grocery store.

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) 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.
