I just wanted to wish you a wonderful Christmas Holiday and to say thank you for all the hard work (and love) that went into Plan to Eat this year. It seems like every time I use the program it has some new and improved feature. I love the way it is getting better and better all the time. It has made menu planning and recipe management a breeze for me - I couldn't live without it now.

We're on a journey in trying to discover the sources of our son's chronic skin eczema, and at this point have found out about 20 or so foods he is sensitive to. Making such drastic dietary changes has been a difficult journey for me, a mom who hasn't ever enjoyed preparing food much anyway. This site has blessed my socks off in trying to organize my thoughts and plan healthy meals for our family with little ones to take care of during the day, and not much time to sit and be thoughtful about all this. What a miracle to click on a tab and have a recipe quickly downloaded to the site, and click another tab and have my grocery list made already! Wow!

One thing that I especially love that I was not expecting to was the shopping list. I mean, I knew it was awesome on my phone. I logged in quickly and checked items off as I added to my cart. But one day I decided to print it out. I placed it on a clipboard and handed it to my 6 year old who is learning to read. She absolutely loved looking for words and checking them off as we went along. Even her 4 year old brother got in on the action. Made grocery shopping so much more enjoyable! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

I've tried it all - pre-planned meal plans that others e-mail me the recipes for and the shopping list. These are great, but I don't always love all of the recipes and sometimes they just don't fit into my preferences (or my family's). I love to peruse online recipes along with the many recipe books and magazines. But, it just always seemed so much work to compile them and figure out what I needed on my grocery list - let alone having all kinds of books/mags lying around for one week's meals. Plan to Eat answers all of my dilemmas - it keeps track of my recipes, it lets me import them from websites with VERY minimal proofreading or changing. It lets me drag, drop, tag, click, print, filter...well, it lets me do everything I've ever dreamed of!

(Plan to Eat) has drastically reduced our grocery budget. Before I wondered around Whole foods just putting stuff in my cart without a plan. Now I buy far less and feel like we actually use what I buy and not waste it.

Plan to Eat is a small business – Just Our Family
Lisa is the visionary for Plan to Eat. It was through her frustration with the redundancy of planning meals that Plan to Eat was born.
Clint is the creator and maintainer of Plan to Eat. He is part designer, part programmer, and all around problem solver.
We are both passionate about homeschooling, raising our 4 kids, and eating real food cooked at home while helping others do the same.
We are not a startup.
We are not trying to grow as fast as possible (by making our service free) so we can sell our customer base and move on to the next project.
We don't like ads.
Especially in the context of a web application like Plan to Eat.
We have intentionally chosen not to seek investors or borrow money
This gives us the freedom to focus on what is best for our customers and our own family.
We try to be very clear & up front about the cost of a Plan to Eat Subscription.
It’s $4.95/month or $39/year. We do not ask for credit card information before starting a 30 day trial. We do not want to “trick” you into paying us because you forgot to cancel. We offer a no-questions-asked refund policy. By default, we do not automatically bill you when your yearly subscription expires.
If your subscription expires...
We do not remove your account but instead suspend it so you can renew at any point.
We do not hold your recipes & information hostage.
You can always export all of your recipes, even after your subscription has expired.
We believe these ideas are just common sense.
They reflect our commitment to treating our customers the way we want to be treated.
