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!
Plan to Eat is the tool we wished for.
With a growing family, Lisa Bounds wanted to eat out less and cook more homemade meals. 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 at the grocery store, but meal planning took a lot of time.
Her husband, Clint, tried to find a digital solution to make meal planning easier, but, at the time, 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 meal planners all over the world simplify their planning process.

Plan to Eat brings order to chaos.
Our Recipe Clipper allows you to gather all your recipes together in your digital recipe book and organize them how you like.
The meal planning calendar lets you plan ahead for any length of time, save meal plans to reuse in the future and add notes to remind yourself of the other events and obligations in your life.
But the very best part of Plan to Eat is the automated shopping list. When you add recipes to your calendar, the shopping list will automatically populate an organized list of ingredients you need to buy.
You can add to and refine this list as much as you want, so you buy all the ingredients for your recipes, and any other household items you also need.
