AMAZING AND SO HELPFUL! As someone who plans out my family's weekly meals at the beginning of each week, this has been a tremendous help. I can add a recipe from Pinterest and as soon as I schedule the meal on the included calendar, the ingredients are automatically added to my grocery list. It has saved so much time. You can easily edit any recipe or add your own from scratch. This is definitely worth the money.
I am personally floored with how revolutionizing this has been to my dailies. I didn't realize how much stress I carried about meals for my family of six until it all went away with this amazing tool. It has freed me up to enjoy more time with my family and is saving us money as well!!!! So thrilled to be a plan to eat member.

I love plan to eat. I have used their website for my weekly meal planning for 4 years now. I love that they continue to focus their energy on making improvements to the plan to eat system rather than moving on to a different product. This app is a fantastic addition, allowing me to access everything when I'm offline, be it in a grocery store with no WiFi access or camping in my airstream.
I have for the past 4 years. This website and apps have changed my family’s life. I now have almost 5,000 recipes collected and tagged with custom tags. It usually takes me 15 minutes to plan the menu for the week, go through the fridge and the pantry to take things off the shopping list, and go. So many useful little features! I can’t even break them down to explain them to you, but I am a repeat subscriber and probably will for life.
