Welcome > Week One, Lesson One

Welcome to The Learning Series! We’re excited you’re joining us for this 4-week introduction to Plan to Eat!

Plan to Eat allows you to collect recipes that fit your lifestyle, create a customized meal plan to accommodate your schedule, and go to the grocery store with an organized list.

With a few recipes in your account you can make your meal plan as unique as you are, and we’ll help you do it efficiently.

This week we are getting you started with an overview of the program, so you can start playing around with the website or app!

Plan to Eat has three main sections: Cook, Plan, Shop

The Cook tab is an digital Recipe Book. Your recipe book is where you can gather recipes from around the web and your family cookbooks, into one place. Adding recipes to your Plan to Eat account is the first step in getting started. 

The Plan tab is the meal planning calendar. Once you have recipes saved to your Recipe Book you can add them to your Planner to create custom meal plans that fit your family’s needs!

The Shop tab is the automated shopping list. The Shopping List generates an organized list of ingredients based on the recipes and ingredients on your meal planner. The shopping list connects to a specific range of dates on your planner and creates a list from the recipes planned on those dates.

Add Recipes to Your Account

Below is a video to show you the different ways you can add recipes to your account. If you’d rather read about these options, check out our help article on adding recipes to your account

Need some recipe inspiration? You can save recipes to your account from our previous Cooking Challenges! These recipes are free for you to save and use, and also completely optional. 

Our first Live Q&A is happening this Thursday, July 8th at 5pm MT! If you have questions before then, please respond to this message or email us at help@plantoeat.com
