Eliminate the Overwhelm of Meal Planning

PlanToEat.com makes it SIMPLE for me to make a quick meal plan, prep my shopping list (they do it automagically based on your meal plan!) and get in and out of the grocery store.

My favorite feature is that I can create a meal plan once and then reuse it. On a busy week when I don’t have the brain power to meal plan, all I need to do is drag and drop the recipe on my calendar and voila – meal planning and shopping list prep are done in less than 30 second. Genius.
