My favorite App- Evah!

I rarely install apps, and even more rarely pay for them. But this app is practically priceless for me!

Why? You ask.

It’s a:
– Meal Planner
– Recipe organizer (think old-school recipe box but waaaay better)
– Grocery List generator

ALL  .  IN  . ONE!

I’ve tried a recipe binder, a recipe box, a spreadsheet, a word document and I would get frustrated at their limitations and quit by the next grocery trip.

Well, friends- I’m happy to report I’ve used this app DAILY for the past year and haven’t considered switching.

Meal Plan….. You are my app MVP!

1a- meal plan
When you open the app you’ll see your meal plan; here’s a recent one that I’ve filled out.  Clearly I wing it for breakfast and lunches since I have nothing planned 😉

1b- Adding a meal

*All these are recipes I’ve put in as the weeks have gone on.
No pressure to put in all your recipes at the beginning.
Just do one week at a time.

Recipe Tab Image result for arrow down emoji

2- Recipe Categories

In this tab you can add a new recipe or search for recipes, like if
have a friend who eats gluten-free coming over,
you can search your recipes by that category.

3- recipe with commentary
When you open up a recipe you’ve already added, it’ll look like the above.
If you’re adding a recipe, you can fill in as much or as little info as you want.

Grocery List Tab!!! Image result for arrow down emoji

4- grocery list pic

When you add a meal to your meal plan screen,
it automatically generates a grocery list on the grocery tab for you-
based on the grocery items/ ingredients you’ve specified for each recipe.

 

***THIS Image result for arrow up emoji IS MY FAVORITE PART because I just quickly look through my list WHILE also looking at my pantry/ fridge to see what ingredients I already have.

This has kept me from buying an extra bag of flour when I already have a full one, or helped me see I’m almost out of salt so I should leave it on the list.

 

 

Here’s the link to the app in the App Store.
