Anyone who eats food is a meal planner

You may fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants and plan tonight’s 6:00 family dinner at 5:45, which may result in a “fun” trip to the drive-through, but at some point you have to make a decision about what you and your family are going to eat, which may be something out of a microwavable tray, which is not a good meal plan.

Not a good meal plan tray

A bowl of cereal, a trip to the drive-through, or a trip to the microwave; these are the meals that happen when we practice flying-by-the-seat-of-our-pants-meal-planning, which is how my family survived before we started Plan to Eat.

We would often have a refrigerator that was completely empty, or it was full of food we couldn’t use. We hated grocery shopping because we would buy what we didn’t need while forgetting the things we did. Our “fun” and “spontaneous” meal plans, which actually lacked any form of a plan, landed us at restaurants more than we wanted. Our bank account suffered because eating out is expensive. Our health suffered because what we were eating was not good for us.

We needed a good meal planner, and out of this need Plan to Eat was born. Now we want to share it with you so that you don’t have to fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants-meal-plan anymore either.

What is Plan to Eat?

Plan to Eat is an online meal planner app that allows you to add and organize recipes, drag those recipes onto a calendar to plan them, and our software automatically creates your shopping list based on your planned recipes. By providing tools that streamline the meal planning process we equip households to eat better food, eat together, save money at the grocery store, and have a less stressful cooking experience in the kitchen.

Why we do what we do.

Our physical and emotional health is directly tied to what we eat, and the best way to ensure we are getting the highest quality food is to prepare it at home.

Without a system to organize recipes, plan menus, and compile shopping lists, our kitchens will lack the ingredients we need to prepare our meals.

Our hope is that Plan to Eat will equip you to prepare delicious, wholesome food at home that nourishes both body and soul.

How we work.

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.



You are invited to a free, 30 day, full-service, no strings attached trial.

No payment information is required and your feedback is welcome.

At the end of the trial you can subscribe for $4.95/month or $39/year.

Wow, that sounds like a great gift!

I just wanted to say that I am so happy that you offer a thirty-day free trial even though the product seems very reasonably priced to begin with. It's just one more thing for a busy mom to remember to cancel a membership that I'm not using so I likely wouldn't have tried this without the free trial option. And I'm so glad I did! I have accidentally turned my children into processed/fast food junkies because we're always so busy that I got into the habit of just grabbing something on the run or, at most, heating something up at home. I have been using plan to eat for almost a month now and my children (unsurprisingly) have not been overly impressed with my efforts at cooking real food and eating at home. But last night, finally, my older son said, "Wow Mom, that was really good. You should make that again!" Music, symphony really, to my ears! Not to mention the stress-reduction of knowing what's for dinner that night and having the ingredients in the house, ready to go, and not spoiled already!!

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!!!

(Plan to Eat) saved me at least an hour of planning meals, making the shopping list and inputting it into the previous app I was using. I love that I can plan my meals for the week then it pulls the shopping list for me. I really like that I can go to the staples list and add what I need from there to my shopping list. I also like that I can add my own specific needs to the staples list or my shopping list for the week.

I don't like cooking, and I don't like shopping for food, so until lately I've eaten out - a lot. I've been working on eating more healthful meals, and this week I decided to make food at home using the recipes in a fitness book I've been using. I entered the recipes into Plan to Eat and planned which meals I'll eat for the rest of the week. Super simple, super fun. I went to the grocery store last night, and the app grouped all the things I needed to buy, making shopping painless. Making the recipes is even more fun, because the web app I installed (nice bookmark thing via Safari on iOS) guided me, step-by-step. Plan to Eat is helping me live a more healthful life. Thank you!
