Today’s post is a sponsored post brought to you by the Recipe Calendar meal planning app. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Howdy friends! Today I am excited to share with you information about the Recipe Calendar app and what it’s all about. Probably the one thing I hear people complain about the most, is figuring out what to make for dinner and their struggle of planning meals. Whether it’s meals for just yourself, or the whole family, meal planning for the week can be a daunting task. Well, that’s where the Recipe Calendar app comes in to save the day! Read on to check it out and enter the GIVEAWAY!
There are so many reasons why meal planning is important. We are all busy, so after working all day, who wants to try and figure out what to make for dinner and then go to the grocery store and buy everything to make it? I know I don’t. But with this app, you can plan all your meals for the whole week, use the built in grocery list to do your shopping once a week, and now you have a weeks worth of healthy meals for the family (or for one or two people…it’s totally customizable)!
And another awesome feature of this app is that you can choose from several different types of meal plans, special diets included. Are you eating a paleo diet? There’s a meal plan for that! Vegetarian? They got ya covered! So after you sign in, you can choose to create your own meal plan, or pick one that is already made. Recipes are included too.
The app allows you to plan meals for every part of the day, for the entire week. You can add, replace or remove dishes too.
Nutritional value, the time it takes to make the meal and the recipe are all part of this app. You can also add your own recipes to the app, to save for later and also to share with friends and other app users.
The recipe for the meal you select, tells you exactly the ingredients that you need. Add those ingredients to your shopping list, that way one trip to the grocery store is all you need each week. And with your grocery list on your phone, there’s no forgetting your grocery list at home either (totally guilty of that!). Just click on the shopping basket button in the app when you are at the grocery store, and click off each item as you add them into your real grocery cart.
Here’s an example of what a recipe would look like on the app:
The app is social too! Have everyone in the family follow you, and they can add their input in too! If they see a recipe they want for dinner, they can send the recipe to you. Look…I just solved any complaints about what’s for dinner!
And search for your friends who are using the app, and share ideas and recipes with them. Or get a group of friends together on the app, and each friend can be in charge of a week of meal planning and then share that weeks worth of meals with the group!
The App is available for Android users and I hear an iOS version will be here soon! If you are an Android user, you can type “Recipe Calendar” in Google Play search to find the app or click HERE.
