Eat healthier food. Save time & Money. Know what‘s for dinner.

Wow, that sounds like a great gift!

I just spent some time entering recipes and trying out your software and I am in love!! Thank you! I looked for something like this for years, and even bought some software about 10 years ago that was awful. You are an answer to a prayer, freeing up my menu planning time so I can do other things. Thank you so much!

I have been using this for about 2 months now, and it has been a time and mind saver for me.

I have been using your site for a year now and I can't imagine life without it now! You have not only made my meal planning a breeze BUT the grocery list feature has helped save so much money over this past year! I no longer wander aimlessly through the store guessing at what I need and crossing my fingers that I didn't forget to write something on my list.

We are on an extremely tight budget (think $50 a week for a family of four!), so having a tool that will help me stay within my budget and know exactly what I need is so helpful! Plan to Eat is one of those things that help moms like me continue to stay home with kids despite a rough economy and families to prioritize what's truly important. So thanks again!

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.
