At Plan to Eat, we believe planning ahead is a pathway to freedom. Our mission is to help planners free up time, money, and mental space for more of what they love through the most flexible and functional meal planning app available.

Our Story.

Plan to Eat was born from one family’s need to make the meal-planning process simpler. Clint Bounds created Plan to Eat in 2009 to help his family save time and money, but soon realized other families needed it too.

Why we do it.

We make the most flexible and functional meal planning app, so you can save time, feel prepared, and focus on doing what you love.

Plan to Eat was created to encompass everything great about pen and paper planning without the time commitment and clutter. Plan to Eat is the all-in-one meal planning tool that allows you to have the same intentionality and control as your current system but in a flexible and functional app.

Who we do it for.

Plan to Eat is built for the meal planners and do-it-yourselfers in the world. There’s little autonomy in pre-designed meal plans and no room for your own preferences and creativity. Plan to Eat was created for people who love to plan ahead and be intentional with their food choices.

With Plan to Eat you collect the recipes that fit your lifestyle, create a customized meal plan to accommodate your schedule, then go to the store with a list organized the way you like to shop. That’s the beauty of doing it yourself.

There is up-front work to gather your recipes, but as a fellow do-it-yourselfer, we’re used to that! It’s the same pen and paper system you’re used to, but we help you do it efficiently.

How we work.

Zero ads.

We don’t like ads on our site or in our app, and we never share or sell your data to make a buck. We’re here to make your life simpler, not complicate it with things you don’t want or need.

No investors.

Even in the fast-paced, competitive tech world, we’re committed to remaining an independently owned and operated business. We’re a customer-focused and customer-funded company that values intentionality and independence as much as you do.

Small biz, not big tech.

We are a small company, not a big corporation, which means you get personal touches like fast, friendly customer support and user-driven features. 

No tracking.

We’re a privacy-focused company. We don’t share or sell your personal information with any third parties. We support other privacy-focused companies, like, for analytics and error logging. We don’t prompt you to “accept cookies” because we only use cookies to remember that you’ve logged in to your account.

No hidden costs.

It’s $5.95/month or $49/year. We don’t ask for payment info before starting a free trial and we don’t want to “trick” you into paying us because you forgot to cancel.

We offer a 60-day, no-questions-asked refund policy. By default, we do not automatically bill you when your yearly subscription expires. And we will never sell your privacy for a profit. Our service is 100% funded by our subscription fees. It’s that simple.

No automatic subscription renewals.

If you love Plan to Eat and want to keep using it, we’re so thrilled! But if it’s not right for you, we won’t bully you into sticking around and we’ll never renew your subscription without your authorization. If your account expires, we don’t remove it but instead suspend it so you can renew anytime.

No holding your information hostage.

You can always export all of your recipes, even after your subscription has expired. You can delete your account at any time and we never share or sell your data or private information.

Who we are.
