Grilled Chicken with Chili Garlic Sauce

It’s finally grilling season and I couldn’t be more excited to spend afternoons outside with my friends and family, making great food on the grill.

I like making burgers and hot dogs as much as the next person, but for me, this chili garlic chicken has become my favorite reason to light the grill.

Cherry Hand Pies

Hand Pies with Cherries

It’s a small thing, but when I was about eight years old, I remember my parents letting me occasionally snag a cherry hand pie from the gas station when we filled up. It was a special treat, for sure, but one that I eventually grew out of because I found the packaged cherry hand pies to be too sweet.

Good news, though! I’m an adult now and I can make my own cherry pies—ones that have a better balance of sweet and tart flavors.

Skinnytaste Meal Plan (May 28-June 3)

https://www.skinnytaste.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/ST_Weekly_Meal_Template_Week_May28_Jun3.jpg

A free 7-day flexible meal plan including breakfast, lunch and dinner and a shopping list. All recipes include calories and Weight Watchers Freestyle Smart Points.

A free 7-day flexible meal plan including breakfast, lunch and dinner and a shopping list. All recipes include calories and Weight Watchers Freestyle Smart Points.

Wishing everyone a Happy Memorial Day weekend! A few notes for this week’s meal plan, prep the quinoa ahead for breakfast bowls and marinade for chicken on Sunday night, if desired. Grill extra breast of chicken for Tues/Wed lunches.

If you’re new to my meal plans, I’ve been sharing 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. You should aim for around 1500 calories* a 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!

PS – If you want to make your own meal plan, you can search for recipes by course in the index.

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!

Meal Plan for May Week 5

Meal Plan for May Week 5

This month, Megan Gordon is back with us sharing her weekly meal plans! Megan is a writer and recipe developer living in Seattle, WA, the author of Whole Grain Mornings, and mom to a 2-year-old. Please welcome Megan!

Memorial Day weekend is here, and with it comes some extended time off for many of us. And if your family is anything like ours, it’s also the unofficial start of grilling season!

I’m spending Saturday and Sunday sprucing up the backyard: weeding, dusting off the patio furniture, and maybe if I’m feeling inspired, trying to repair our wobbly fence (this may be an ambitious list, all told).

Then come Memorial Day, weather permitting, we’ll be spending time outside grilling.

The weather is getting warmer, the flip flops are coming out, and we’re all dusting off those shorts for the summer.

Except. Well, living in LA, that’s basically my outfit year-round.

But for those of you not living in LA, summer is right around the corner. Which means we’re gearing up for pool parties and barbecues all around for those summer get-togethers.

Smothered and covered with the perfect BBQ chicken bites with all that melted cheesy goodness.

And don’t forget those toppings – tomatoes, onion, sour cream and cilantro.

Although, personally, I just need the cheese, the BBQ chicken and the potato chips. Everything else may just get in the way.

Side note. Anyone can make this. And I mean anyone. It’s basically fool-proof.

Blueberry Pitcher Margaritas

Margarita Recipe with Blueberries serve

I think we’ve all seen cocktails that get out of hand with creativity, and we’ve probably all encountered when a margarita gets a bit too crazy.

I’m thinking about margaritas made with wonky ingredients like bubblegum, fish sauce, or chocolate. I think the worst I ever saw was a dill-passionfruit flavored “margarita” where the tequila was swapped out for vodka.

Vodka! Can you imagine?!
