For the price of a few times you would have ordered takeout because you were not organized...this would be a great gift for a cook in your life who likes technology. I love it and appreciate the "small business feel" of the people who run it (if you have a good suggestion to make it better, they will try to make it happen). If you look at recipes on Pinterest, etc. but really need to pull those recipes into real life, their bookmarklet snags those recipes and organizes them for you.

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!

LOVE this site! Love that I can import recipes from anywhere and plan out my menus. It helps me save money on my groceries because I am not making multiple trips to the store every week. I love the shopping list feature that automatically adds ingredients as I add recipes. The creators of this site definitely took the stress out of figuring out meal time!!!! Thank you!!!

I recently started to plan my meals on Plan to Eat, and I am soooo excited about the money I didn't spend this month! I saved a considerable amount just planning from what I already have, plus I don't have to dash to the store for one item and leave $35 later with 9 items because I know exactly what I have and what I need. This is brilliant! And it's downright fun, in my opinion!! Thanks for all your work to make it great.

I have now got most of my favorite recipes entered and am using the planner & shopping list. This saves me hours!

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.
