Almost Perfect

Love using RealPlans for meal planning. So handy to have it right on my phone so if I need to change something up while at the grocer it’s no big deal and I know exactly what to add or take away from the list. Only hiccup is that for some reason it doesn’t work as well when I want to shop for two weeks at a time. Even if I prepare the lists for each week separately (i.e. make of the things I already have, etc), when I combine the two lists into one before going into the grocery it often puts stuff back on the list that I already marked off, and won’t let me check off some things after I purchase. Kind of annoying, especially since I often shop for 2 weeks at a time. But otherwise, I love this app!

Loving this

I’m doing the whole 30 minus nightstands and I can choose from East to budget to more complicated meals. The shopping and pantry lists are awesome.

If you are looking for a fodmap meal planner this is not for you. Prior to signing on, Fodmap is included in their advertising. Comes up in a fodmap search. Once I subscribed to the app there is not an option. I canceled immediately, within 5 minutes. Still looks like I’m in the hook for the month.

Love if!

I live the ease and convenience of these meal plans. I’m not a very good cook but I can make these recipes and they taste great!

Game changer

I love how easy this app makes meal planning! Tons of recipe and diet options and the fact that they make the grocery lists for you is amazing. Do it- you won’t regret it!

Life Changing App, Super Responsive Support

I bought this app five years ago when I needed help planning and following a restricted diet. It was a game changer then...meal planning and shopping got monumentally easier. I no longer need the restricted problem for the app. Change my preference settings to include previously restricted foods, bam! New plan. Fast forward five years to a pandemic. I’d have to manually type my grocery list into a store app to place a pickup order. I asked for a grocery store integration. One existed, but the integrated service wouldn’t deliver to me. Waited a month or so, and Bam! Another grocery delivery integration that DOES deliver to me! The developers of this app listen to their clients. Customer support is amazing. Chat is always available to answer questions. Yes, it’s a subscription service. But the money I have saved by eliminating food waste (don’t buy what I don’t need), and the time I save trying to figure out what’s for dinner has been life changing. Have a favorite recipe that’s not in the planner? No problem! You can either type it in manually or imported it seamlessly from the internet. I don’t typically write reviews or make recommendations, but I tell everyone I know about this app, I love it that much.

Awesome app!!! Developers listen too!

The app has some good meals. The planning is relatively easy to use. The grocery list I like. The app is agonizingly slow to go from on screen to another. Cute pot with hearts popping up out of it while you wait, but has turned into annoying. And this isn’t because of wifi or cell service. This has occurred in many locations with many level of bars. I’m updating my stars from 3 to 5. The app’s improvements have remedied the issue of being slow. Works like a charm!!!

I love Real Plans ❤️

It is truly amazing what Real Plans can do for your meal planning, grocery shopping and meal preparation. I’ve been using Real Plans for over a year now and I’m learning new things it can do all the time. Well done Real Plans!

Stress reliever! Connects to Instacart!

What a time saver. After my meal plan is created, I’m able to import the ingredients to my instacart!! Also I love how Real plans can record an inventory of what is in your fridge, pantry, and suggest recipes based on that. And suggests ingredients to get to unlock more recipes! Plus, I can just type in a food I detest (jalapeños) and a whole bunch of items come up that I can easily select all and add to “never include a recipe with this” (or something to that effect.) And I like that I can plan in leftovers! The recipes so far have been delicious. I will update my preference to be faster recipes with fewer ingredients. Cool option. Very user friendly site. So worth $14 a month to not have to wonder at dinner time what I’m going to cook. And the kids love the food!!!

Decent app, was charged despite free trial offer

App offered a 14 day free trial for the paid version, but I was charged the full monthly fee immediately. Of course the charge goes through Apple, so their customer service was able to just pass the buck and never even answered me as to why I was charged with the trial. The app is ok - I may have kept it were I not put off by the charge issue, though probably not. There are some good recipes, but it doesn’t allow much flexibility or account for those shopping on a budget at all. The shopping lists were enormous, with many specialty ingredients and very little overlap so you would have needed to get much more than you actually needed of many items. If more options for budget ranges or efficient use of ingredients were built in, the app could have potential.
