Crazy Wonderful Days

Posts Tagged ‘organizing

So a friend of mine posted on Facebook her dislike of meal and menu planning which sparked comments from other friends about how they complete this tedious task in their routines.

I must admit that I have not always been regimen with this task myself.  When my husband and I were first married, I cooked (and when I say cook, I mean like 4 course meals! LOL) almost every night – I allowed myself to cook “from a box” once a week.  As time went on, I went back to school for my master’s degree, then I got pregnant with Munchkin and there seemed to be less time to dedicate to this task.  Fast forward to life with two kids and I have been “on” and “off” with routines for days that I plan, grocery shop, etc.  We always eat, but it isn’t always a structured well planned out meal.  So how might we fix this problem?

Well, one of the people that commented to my friend’s Facebook post that she uses something called, Plan to Eat.  So I thought I would check it out…

Here is what I found:

First, I found the website, which is:  www.plantoeat.com/welcome

At the top right, I clicked on the arrow pointing to the right labeled Tour to start reading what this has to offer.  At the very very bottom, there is a video that you can watch that shows how you can input your recipes from cookbooks, family/friends, online, etc, add them to a calendar for planning, create a grocery list and even download an app to view it all!  Sounds pretty awesome to me!  But do I want to commit?

Well, there is a 30 day free trial – NO PAYMENT INFORMATION REQUIRED!   (How awesome is that?!?!)

So sign me up!!  If I like it, I will sign up for a membership during their Black Friday Special!  I will post another blog entry after trying it!  If you check it out, let me know your thoughts!!
