They have thought of EVERYTHING to help a person be successful at meal planning!!
To start: The app creates a menu for you & if you don’t like what it chooses, you can swap out individual meals for something different; it offers suggestions to swap out with. You can also add your own recipes as well. It also has a shopping list. All you do is push a button on the recipe you’ve chosen & it adds the ingredients to the shopping list. You can cross off items you don’t need & cross things off your list while you shop. All the ingredients on the list are listed in the sections you find them in the store. ie: produce, frozen, spices, etc. The recipes only take 10 to 15mins to make, & the ones I chose, were sooooo delicious that I’m completely sold on this app!! I’m a horrible binge eater & I’m horrible about planning meals & snacks on my own. I have a feeling this is my key to weight loss success! Had to share this find for anyone else interested in meal prep & needs help with their portion control. The only downside to this app, for me, is that it measures by ounces instead of teaspoons, tablespoons, & cups, so I have to look up the conversions every time bc I don’t want to weigh things. So far, that is the only thing I don’t like about the app... They’ve really thought of everything - they even have step by step instructions to scroll through as you make the recipe... Sorry such a long post, but I’m blown away by this app!! 😊
Coming from a big family I always struggled on how to portion and shop for one, this app is a life saver. It does all the hard work for me and the recipes are delicious! Things I never would've discovered or cooked for myself. I don't own a scale, and track my weight loss by measurements, and I've found that I've lost an inch in my waist and 3" in my hip (1 WEEK!!! ) AMAZING! my partner has a different with schedule than me, so I absolutely love the feature that allows you to select which meals your partner will be eating.
I've only had a few mishaps with the recipes (zucchini cakes, I'm looking at you. It wasn't portioned right between the dry ingredients and the liquids). However, still delicious.
I've recommendation I would give to the developers is to adjust the shopping list to show how the ingredients are used (such as chopped almonds instead of just almonds, or specifying a variety of colors of bell peppers, as suggested in the recipe, instead of just "bell pepper"). Other than that, I can't give this app enough stars or thanks!
Implement more instructional videos please!
This app would be great if it had more instructional videos showing the process of the cooking. It’s kinda hard for me to follow the written steps, it gets confusing at some points and the wording trips me up. If the app is going to have a “cooking mode” and the cooking mode barely has any videos to it, I feel like it should at least be more thorough with the steps and instructions. I feel it would be easier if I’m able to follow the video as I go by, most of the recipes recommended to me for my diet don’t even have a instructional video for me to follow and it’s pretty frustrating. Its no use in me searching the name of the recipe online to see if I can get any videos on it because they use different ingredients than what the app is telling you to use.
I have one question though, for the recipes that are “meal prep.” In the ingredients section do they show the ingredients to make enough for one serving? So if you’re meal prepping the “5-ingredient Salmon Teriyaki” and it says meal prep for 4 days this week, the 2.3 Ib of salmon fillet would only reflect for one serving for that one day? So you’d have to make it again 3 times for the rest of the days and at the start of each time you making it you use the same 2.3 Ib of salmon right?
Developer Response ,
We hear you 100% on the instructional videos. We'd love to have these for all recipes in the app, but as they're very expensive to produce that isn't viable for us right now. We'll keep working on this as I appreciate how easy it makes cooking when you also have a video alongside each step.
Recipes that are meal prep will show you the ingredients for all the days you're cooking for. You'll see at the top of the Ingredients section in a recipe that it will say "Quantities are for 1 person for 4 days". You'll also see a "Days this week" which shows you which days you're having this meal for.
In your example the 2.3 lb of salmon is likely for 4 days, so you would just cook once and then eat the same meal for the next 3/4 days. If the meal is labelled as "prep fresh" then you'll see ingredients just for that 1 serving.
We're always happy to answer questions via the support channel inside the app too! We typically respond to most queries in 24 hours. You can find this via the Settings tab inside the app. If this helps, we'd appreciate an update to your review.
