Great app!

This app has really helped us get out of a slump when it comes to dinners - we used to eat the same thing every week. But now it’s more exciting to see what we could cook up, the instructions are so useful and it’s teaching us new techniques as well.
The only downside for us is the lack of vegan menu packs, we have to pick a veggie pack and see if we can alter it at all. Which really isn’t the end of the world, and we are happy to carry on using the app.

Life-changing app

We’ve been using this app for a couple of weeks now, and I can truly say it’s one of the only apps that’s exceeded my expectations! So many food or planning apps promise all sorts but there’s not much beneath the bonnet. This is different. The recipes are all delicious, easy to follow, and quick. Cooking something different yet simple to make every night has made meal prep a joy, not a chore. So we spend less on takeaways and eating out, and eat more healthily too! Plus the formula of 3 meals made with similar ingredients is a game-changer; so much less food waste and very satisfying to use everything up. Can’t recommend this app more! My only suggestion for improvement would be more flexibility - if plans change and we don’t finish a whole pack in one week, it would be great to roll over the extra recipe without the ingredients appearing in the shopping list (as we would already have them).

Beautifully designed but not so simple

The app is lovely and well designed but it is very confusing, why would I only need three recipes for a whole week? Also there’s no way of saying I don’t want to see recipes containing certain foods e.g gluten. Half the recipes I saw contained jack fruit which I have never even seen before in a shop.

Before downloading I thought the idea of the app was to choose recipes for the week as your “pack” and the app would show you a shopping list and when you select a recipe to cook it would play the videos etc… I presume this is only possible after you’ve built up enough packs to have a favourite recipe section. Also what if you don’t like all the recipes in one pack? I’ve then used my one credit (which is also a ridiculous system when already paying monthly) and can’t view more recipes.

I thought the idea was to take the stress out of meal planning but it did not do that.
