A Healthy Meal plan with delicious, easy dinners plus a sheet pan breakfast for easy meal prep! Also enjoy a brand *NEW* side dish recipe – crispy air fryer sweet potato fries! Plus 21 Day Fix Containers, WW points, and a meal planning spreadsheet included, too.
Healthy Meal Plan
It’s gorgeous out here in PA today and we finally have a break from sports for an afternoon. As much as I love it, I am excited to sit on the porch with a cocktail this evening without anywhere to be.
Until tomorrow morning, that is.
Anyway, I am excited for next week’s meal plan! I love prepping a big tray of Eggplant Parmesan on Sundays to enjoy for a quick and satisfying dinner. We also have three track meets and swimming after school, so I am using my crock pot multiple times. Oh – and spring Fridays call for Burgers and Fries – and these NEW Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries are so freaking easy and delicious and, dare I say it, actually crispy??!! I can’t wait for you guys to try!
For lunch, I’m really in the mood for Chicken Salad with Grapes now that the weather is getting slightly warmer. I like it over a big serving of mixed greens to get some green in early in the day! I also plan to use leftover Baked Eggplant Parmesan on one of the days, and if you do the same, just watch your blue container.
There’s lots of room to make some pasta or a grain like brown rice – or use a yellow treat swap instead. If you need an idea, just let me know!

About This Meal Plan
If you have been following full plans, and are new to my weekly meal plans, each week there are five dinners and a breakfast planned out, along with a lunch suggestion.
These weekly plans allow for more flexibility, but the meal plan still follows the 21 Day Fix containers and also includes WW points. This plan is perfect for anyone who is interested in healthy eating, portion control, prioritizing whole foods, and living a healthy lifestyle.

The grocery list can be found in my weekly email for email subscribers!

We are working on converting each recipe on the site to the new WW points system. Some recipes still have a link to find your personal points, while others have the points listed. In both cases, if you go to the recipe card on each blog post you will find the WW points info in the “notes” section. Thank you for bearing with us while we work on adapting to the new system!
You can see how the whole week fits together on the 4.24.23 Meal Plan at a Glance Spreadsheet.
For best results: click the spreadsheet link, make a copy when prompted, and save it to your computer (won’t work quite as well on a phone).

I also plan to use leftover Baked Eggplant Parmesan on one of the days, and if you do the same, just watch your blue container. The Eggplant Parm is even super yummy with half the amount of cheese, too!

When I meal plan I always start by planning my dinners. Then breakfast, then lunch. And finally, I fill in my snacks for the day with my remaining macros, points, or containers.
Healthy Snack Ideas | 21 Day Fix Snacks this post is a great way to get ideas for the containers, points, or macros you have leftover after you plan the rest of your day!
It’s still important to follow the 21 Day Fix plan on Saturdays and Sundays for optimal results, but you will likely have leftover meals and ingredients after following this healthy weekly meal plan. And, so, to eliminate food waste, take inventory of your fridge and pantry at the end of the week and create a plan for the weekend. Many people like to get some healthy takeout one night – think yummy salads with grilled protein or a slice of veggie pizza – and we have this helpful Healthy Weekend Meals post to help you even more!
You are in luck! I have 16 FREE and FULL 21 Day Fix Meal Plans for all of the calorie brackets ready to go for you!
