Do you have multiple food allergies?
Is planning weekly meals for your family time-consuming and difficult?
Are you looking for an easy way to plan your weekly meals based on your individual needs, likes, dislikes, and food allergies?

Create Custom Plans from Scratch:
- Creating a custom plan is very much like customizing a pre-made menu planner. The only difference is that you would create the plan based on your saved recipes under “My recipes” or when you do searches for recipes. When you are viewing “My Recipes”, you can check any recipe you want to put into a menu planner and then click “Add to New Custom Plan” or “Add to Saved Plan.”
- You can then drag and drop to reorganize the recipe order.
- Click Print when you are satisfied and the PDF will be created.
- You can simply save the PDF to your computer or Print it.
Create profiles with allergy info:
- Create a profile for each one of your family members complete with food allergy information. When you search for recipes, recipes that contain ingredients that you or your family can’t eat will be flagged on each recipe.
- Update your profiles anytime your allergy information changes.
Advanced Search Options:
- Recipes are organized through many different categories, making searching for recipes quick and simple.
- You can search for an individual ingredient, like beets, and you will find all recipes that contain beets.
