Highlighted Reviews

“Best meal planning app I’ve used. It’s user friendly, so easy to input recipes (import by URL is an AMAZINGLY well executed feature), and being able to filter meal options by tags is really helpful.”

Leave a Google Play Review 

“You can add your own recipes, import them directly from websites, and steal all your friends recipes too. We have a 2 week menu of our favourites, so we can simply drag that in and the next 2 weeks is planned! Takes 20 minutes every fortnight, and our shopping list is made for us! We’ve wasted barely any food since using it.”
