Making homemade Chicken Nuggets in the air-fryer is so much healthier than fast food or frozen nuggets, and so easy to make. Made with chunks of chicken breasts coated in breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese then air fried until golden and crisp. These also happen to be egg-free, so they are also great for kids with egg allergies.

To help you jump start your goals for 2018, I am sharing another free 7-day flexible meal plan including breakfast, lunch and dinner for the entire week as well as a shopping list! This is just a guide, you should aim for around 1500 calories* a day. I’ve left plenty of wiggle room for you to add more food such as coffee, beverages, fruits, snacks, dessert, wine, etc.

To make it easy for you, we’ve included a more 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.

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...

I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday week! We were away in Pennsylvania and we all got sick at the same time, so I’m a little late this year compiling my “Best Of” list for 2017. These are the most visited recipes posted in 2017 according to google analytics.

My favorite time of the year, looking back and reflecting on these past twelve months. Thank you for allowing me to share what I love every single day! I’m extremely grateful for all of you, your comments, sharing your photos on social media, getting inspiring emails from so many of you – this has always been my WHY and the reason I loved this little hobby that turned into a full time career.

These veggie-packed latkes, are not your traditional latkes, they’re made with shredded potatoes and a mix of carrots, zucchini and bell pepper, PLUS they’re cooked in a waffle iron so there’s no need to fry! What to serve with latkes is completely up to you, my favorite is with sour cream, lox, capers and red onion, or simply with apple sauce on the side.
