Worth it even though I only use it on a desktop computer.

I have been a member 4 or 5 years. It is the only Black Friday sale I do, as the membership is 50% off then. Even when I don’t use it daily, I find it is still worth it. It’s like any other tool, I don’t use my wheelbarrow, or my snow boots daily, but I am sure glad I have them when I need them. I need this tool when my life gets overwhelming, I can anchor back in regular nutritious meals. I also use it to plan out things that are aging in my pantry. I use the meal planning as I don’t have a smart phone with data plan, so the feature of taking the shopping list with me to the store is not as useful, though I do print out the shopping list occasionally. In spite of using only a portion of the program, the program still has value. When I get tired off my own gluten free recipes, I can connect to others who have already tagged recipes as gluten free. This program really made my switch to gluten free so much easier. The other aspect of this program is it is stable, the people that created it continue to add features without losing the basic functioning of it like what happens to some programs. This program might be the one thing that convinces me to get a cell phone to fully use the shopping list feature.

I love this App

Probably my favorite App and I have page after page of them! I love how PTE has thought of everything. I am obsessed with Pinterest as well as eating (healthy) and organizing! I find recipes on Pinterest add them to PTE which is incredibly easy. I use the tag button because we mostly follow a Keto lifestyle. From there I can then view all my choices. I look at my calendar for what my family has coming up for the week and add them accordingly to the PTE calendar. For example on busy week nights I add quick recipes or even add my own like salads. I can adjust the recipes amounts or delete or change ingredients like buns...I have a larger family so this also allows me to edit the serving size. I also love when I am looking at my shopping list that is on my phone and not on an old scrap of paper I left at home that each recipe has a letter and next to every ingredient is a small letter showing which recipe that ingredient is for. This App has helped me stay organized; we are eating healthy while I spend less money making extra trips to the store and I don’t feel that dread of “ what’s for dinner “

I know that seems overly-dramatic, but as a disorganized hoarder with fears of running out, I am LOVING how using this app calms my food-fear and reduces over-spending and waste.
I signed up for a trial months ago, but didn’t use it until I started a raw detox diet 3 weeks ago and realized it was time to enter the recipes into PlanToEat so I could more easily continue using them more easily after the program is over. (I was motivated by a 2 1/2 page grocery list that had apples listed in 3 locations, one amongst canned items, another with spices, a third with cuckes and zuchs! I strongly suspected PlanToEat would do a better job of grouping “likes” together, and it surely does! —tho I need to enter the category first, as in “apples, green” and “apples” instead of “green apples” for it to be most effective, as the produce is grouped alphabetically when the shopping list is generated.
After I signed up, I spent a few hours manually entering the first week’s recipes and menu, thus learning some of the software nuances at the same time.
I have more to learn about using this powerhouse, but I’m already thrilled!
