  • Tammy says:

    I already use PTE, have been for almost 1.5 years. On Q&A day can you describe how you use the Staples section of the shopping page?

    Also any tricks for those recipe less ingredients like snacks for lunches, etc.

    • Kat Lee says:

      Great questions! I’m happy to tell you l’ll be answering those questions in earlier lessons so you don’t even need to wait for Q&A day.

  • Amy Grable says:

    Hi I have been using it since Thanksgiving. I am excited to learn more of the quick tips. My question is how do you make lists for different stores? Thanks!

  • Brittney says:

    I signed up the other day!! I’m so excited! We’re all getting a little sick of pbh’s every other night πŸ˜‰

  • Tahisha says:

    I signed up for the free 30 day trial but I’m planning to purchase once I fugure out how it works. I’m so excited! Looking forward to streamlining the meal planning process! I’m listed as Tahisha Richards on plan to eat! πŸ™‚ Thanks for the boot camp!!

  • Emily says:

    I’m excited for this too, but I think I may have figured out at least part of my meal-planning issues… We rarely cook ANYTHING with a recipe, it’s just mostly from our heads or traditional meals that we’ve never written down. Makes it hard to remember all ingredients for shopping lists… Maybe I should get some of those recipes written down?

  • Jesilee says:

    As a daughter of a Marine, I am pretty sure it is “Hoo rah!” ^.~ I already love Plan to eat! I use it all the time, even when I was on vacation at my in-law’s house, and now my MIL wants to use it. My hubby’s gift to me was a year subscription. I think you should make an Inspired to Action group that we can join and get access to each other’s recipes. I am always using the one from Kitchen Stewardship.

    • Kat Lee says:

      Thanks for the clarification. Hoo rah!

      And I didn’t know you can make groups! I’ll definitely have to check that out. Do you have a link to kitchen stewardships group?

  • Danielle says:

    I just signed up! what day does the Boot camp start?? πŸ˜‰

  • Carol says:

    I am sitting here, going through emails prior to entering recipes. I have a whole stack in front of me. I thought you wanted all our recipes entered before tomorrow. Boy, am I glad I read your post first! Thank you! I huge weight just got lifted off my shoulders. πŸ™‚

    This is going to be so good for me.

  • Interesting. I’ve been super tempted to try a meal planning service… but this is a super busy week! Hm. Wonder if I can make it happen?? πŸ™‚

  • Excited about this boot camp. We just signed up before Christmas and I was having working my way through it. This will be a huge help. I shared it with my readers and friends – so hopefully even more will get on board. See you tomorrow! πŸ™‚

  • Carol says:

    I just put in 4 recipes. Trying to be an “A” student! So easy and intuitive. I am sure you will have even more tips for us to make it simpler, but I am impressed with how easy those 4 recipes went in.


  • Brooke B says:

    Super excited for this boot camp! I’ve had a subscription to PTE for over a year now but have only used it sporadically. Haven’t taken the time to save meal plans but I’ve got lots of recipes entered. I also haven’t used the shopping list/ pantry etc. much. Looking forward to learning how to use more of the features. Thanks for guiding us!

    • Kat Lee says:

      • Yohana says:

  • Amy Grable says:

    Done with my homework!

  • Tricia Westin says:

    I am excited to be working on my meal planning finally. It is a busy week, but I am going to put the extra effort in to make it work.

  • Heather R says:

    I know I’m late, but procrastination seems to be my thing. πŸ™‚ Anyway, I am going to read all of these and get on it! We are in such a rut with this and other meal planning sites I’ve tried just give you their recipes and I didn’t like not being able to throw mine in too. So this one sounds great! Can’t wait to belatedly join you all!

  • I really need your help doing this,I need to get all the recipes I can for healthy eating. my husband had a heart attack and I’m disabled (7 Major back surgeries with permanent nerve root damage) so I have to be able to do things fast and easy. This sounds like something that will really help us please email me if you have any ways I can do this easier I would really appreciate it thank you very much Candace Mitchell.

  • Changes Afoot…

    As you can see the blog has a new look. Bear with me as I get things the way I would like them. As much as the geek in me likes tweaking things and swapping blog platforms and whatnot, this is not what I want for this blog. So, I decided to not host my…
