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.


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.

Clint’s wife, Lisa, declared “This is ridiculous!” She shoved her cookbooks aside after spending hours handwriting their family menu for another week. Clint agreed. Using his programming and problem solving skills he built Plan to Eat. Lisa is happy again.
Riley has a knack and a special gift for helping others, and can be found heading up Plan to Eat’s support website. That smile in the photo above is real — yeah, she’s really that sweet.
Christopher manages all things advertising and marketing for Plan to Eat. He’s a cyclist, a weightlifter, a rock climber, and a father of 5 who finds himself reading mom-blogs in search of Plan to Eat’s next great advertising partner.
Mike is Clint’s right hand man. No programming challenge is too big or too small for this problem solving ninja. And he makes a mean pot of chili. And don’t ever challenge him to a game of Poker.

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.

Wow, that sounds like a great gift!

There are many recipe organization sites available these days, but Plan to Eat is the only one that has nailed the tricky balance between features and complexity. The site packs enormous punch (Import recipes from anywhere, shopping lists that auto-sort into supermarket categories, "cooking view," etc.), but it presents all that power through a carefully orchestrated user interface that never overwhelms. The site gets out of the way so you can shop and cook with grace. After experimenting with all of the well known competing options, I simply cannot recommend it enough. A big thank you to the husband and wife team of Plan to Eat for literally changing the way my family eats!

Plan to Eat has blessed us in ways that I wouldn't have imagined. I have found that when I use the plan and the associated shopping list I am so much better able to stick within our budget and not waste food. As an added bonus I know when I prepared what, so we make better use of leftovers.

oh man!! Bless you!!! I am so relieved! After working with Pepperplate for the past month, and finally getting to the point of utter, red hot, pull my hair out frustration today, I found you!! Now, YOU have obviously created a menu plan, because the app shows it! I am currently in the process of moving ALL 165 of my recipes over to your app. (one by one I might add, because PP has no way of exporting recipes!), and after the trial, I will be signing up for LIFE!! LOL! Thank you so much for this incredibly intuitive, logical, complete app! (ps: bother me not that I'm moving from a free app to a paid, well worth it to avoid the frustration and organize my life!! )

A few months ago I discovered Ziplist. I loved collecting recipes from the web and using the grocery list with the app to shop. However, I was surprised and frustrated that changing the size of recipes (even something as simple as doubling) really wasn't an option! I am very impressed with how easy Plan to Eat makes it to change the size of a recipe to any number of servings I want. Ziplist is free, but your service is well priced and more functional. It's also better looking! Thanks for a wonderful product.
