How to Plan and Organize Your Meals with Plan to Eat

You’ve heard me mention this time and time again, but planning is key when it comes to avoiding processed food! Every week I sit down and plan out what dinners I’ll make for the upcoming week and what ingredients I’ll need. Not my favorite activity by any means, but I force myself to because when I am prepared, it saves me so much time (and money)! It also reduces how much food I throw out at the end of the week because all the ingredients I purchased have been used up in the recipes that were on our dinner plan.

If you could use a system to help you get into the routine of meal planning, then we’ve got your answer. Our longtime partner, Plan to Eat, is not only the perfect solution, but they are giving you a chance to try it out free (so you can see how helpful it is!) in today’s sponsored post. Watch my video below to see how simple it is to Plan to Eat.

Who should use Plan to Eat?

  • Those who don’t have a solid meal planning system in place.
  • Anyone who has recipe magazine clippings or dog-eared pages in cookbooks.
  • Those who “pin” recipes and forget to go back to actually make them.
  • Anyone who wants to streamline their meals, recipes and food shopping.

How does the online meal planner work?

Plan to Eat is an online meal planner app that allows you to add and organize recipes (of your choice and from a variety of sources) and drag those recipes onto a calendar to plan them. Their software then automatically creates your shopping list based on your planned recipes. It’s that simple! You see a recipe; you save it, plan it and voila; when you are ready to shop, you click “shop” and then “print” your grocery list. How easy is that?!

And I love their mission: “By providing tools that streamline the meal planning process we equip households to eat better food, eat together, save money at the grocery store, and have a less stressful cooking experience in the kitchen.”

Gift subscriptions are also 50% OFF at only $19.50. Purchase as many gift subscriptions at the sale price (available November 24-27) as you would like and send them when you are ready — the recipient’s subscription will not begin until they redeem it… like at Christmas (hint, hint).

  1. if there an APP? I am not on my laptop very much and I just signed up for the 30 days for free… wondering how Mobile or iphone friendly it is??
    Thank you for your time!

  2. I LOVE Plan to Eat. Our grocery bill has decreased since we started using it. Knowing what’s for supper has lessened my stress at the end of the day also. I’m able to link it to Google Calendar so I have the meals with me at all times. The ease of adding recipes is great. Straight from Pinterest or the internet to my recipe file. I highly recommend it.

  3. This is so exciting! I’ve been using Plan to Eat ever since I first heard about from you ages ago. I just logged in to my account to add the extra year at 50% off and that’s not happening. Is there something special I need to do?
