Meal Planning Made Easy with Real Plans
Meal Planning Made Easy with Real Plans
Let’s be real. Eating well is hard.
Eating well is hard because it often feels like in order to eat healthy, you have to just eat salads and fruits all the time and have no fun and no variety. For a long time, I too believed this and just came to a point where I didn’t want to eat well anymore, because it was boring and felt too restrictive.
I found I was just repeating the same recipes over and over again, or eating at the same restaurants.
However, since I switching my way of eating to Paleo, eating well has become fun and a joy to do!
Ever since I started following a Paleo Diet (where you focus on eating real foods such as meats, fruits, veggies, and healthy fats), I’ve more than enjoyed eating food that is good for me and is fun to make! I’ve been sharing paleo recipes left and right!
With the help of awesome Paleo Cooks like Diane Sanfilipo, Juli Baeur, Michelle Tam, Shanti London, Danielle Walker and more, I started to realize not only how good real food is, but also how creative and fun it can be to test out new recipes and re-create dishes that typically aren’t so good for you.
Up until a few weeks ago, I’ve purchased cookbooks, subscribed to newsletters, and browsed paleo websites in search of recipes that looked yummy and were easy to make! I don’t have a lot of time to be in the kitchen on most days, so finding recipes that met the yummy, fun, and easy criteria has always been a priority.
But let’s be real again. It’s easy even when eating Paleo, to get stuck in the normal routine and NOT make new recipes! So not only did I come to a point where I needed recipes that were quick, but recipes I hadn’t tried before!
Meal Planning with Real Plans
Lucky for me (and hopefully for you!) I stumbled upon Real Plans that not only helped me to create yummy, fun, and easy dishes, but also made it SUPER EASY for me to find those recipes, create a meal plan, and generate a shopping list!
In my first week of using Real Plans, I fell in love as I started to make simple dishes that were easy, quick and absolutely delicious. I made dishes such as Breakfast Sausage & Sweet Potato Hash and Jamaican Jerk Salad! All simple recipes, yet they all added a refreshing twist to my daily food and meal choices.
How Real Plans Works
Real Plans has so many amazing features! However, the main ones that set it apart its plan, timeline, shopping list and recipe box.
1. Customized Meal Plan
The plan allows you to customize all your meals to a particular way of eating, such as:
- Traditional (Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free options)
- Paleo (Primal and Autoimmune Protocol options)
- Vegetarian (Ovo-lacto)
The plan also allows you to customize all your meals, to your particular schedule and week! The idea is to create a realistic meal plan, where you actually think about the week ahead and what type of meals you will need, including the time you will need to prepare them. For example, if Sunday is your big cooking day and Monday and Tuesday are your quick meal days, then you can cater your meal plan to just that!
Customizing my meals based on my week has got to be one of my FAVORITE features Real Plans offers!
Real Plans also helps you prepare your meals by telling you a timeline for preparation and cooking, for each day of the week!
3. Shopping List
Now, this is probably my SECOND FAVORITE feature that Real Plans offers.
After you generate your meal plan, Real Plans will generate that week’s Shopping List with the EXACT items you need to create the meals you planned!
AND! You can actually customize the Shopping List by marking off the items you already have in your kitchen AND/OR add other items you need to the shopping list! You can then email or print the shopping list, or just have it open on the Real Plans App as you are shopping! HOW COOL IS THAT?!
4. Recipe Box
You can even SEARCH for recipes and IMPORT some of your own!
