Spend less time meal planning and more time doing what you love.


This tool has transformed what used to be a burden into a simple, quick and easy task I can tackle in less than 30 minutes on the weekend – including building my online grocery order for the week’s pick-up! Now that my kids are teenagers, time is even more precious and Plan to Eat has allowed me to capture just a bit of that back each week. I can’t imagine trying to plan, shop, and cook meals for my family without it!

The Origin Story

Plan to Eat is the tool we wished for.

With a growing family, Lisa Bounds wanted to eat out less and cook at home more. She started meal planning with pen and paper, and a stack of recipe books. It helped her family eat at home more and save money on food, but meal planning was time-consuming.

Her husband, Clint, tried to find a digital solution to make meal planning easier, but in the early 2000s, nothing existed. So Clint, a designer and web developer, set out to create a digital meal-planning program for his wife.

In 2008, Lisa’s pen-and-paper process was transformed into a website, and the first iteration of Plan to Eat was born. Clint quit his full-time job to work exclusively on Plan to Eat and since then, the program has helped thousands of meal planners simplify their planning process.
