About this app

Real Plans is a meal planning app that helps you and your family consistently enjoy healthy, home cooked food.

Our award winning meal planner is brimming with delicious recipes and is easily personalized for your unique tastes and lifestyle. We make it super simple to create a plan in minutes and shop efficiently (in the grocery store or order from home).

Whether your goals are to rock a Whole30, lose weight with low carb, stick with a special gut healing diet, navigate food restrictions, feed picky eaters, or just eat better overall, Real Plans helps set you up for success.


Let us inspire you with dishes that are easy to cook favorites, tested by our own families.

No matter your diet or lifestyle, we have simple but powerful filters (down to the ingredient) so you don’t waste your time sifting through recipes that aren’t right for you. You can choose all your own meals or have us do it for you. You can adjust portion size for leftovers, guests, or family size too.

When you build a new meal plan, a grocery list of all the ingredients you'll need for the week is automatically created, and you can add extra things (like snacks or paper towels too!). Then simply grab your iPhone, check off what you already have, and efficiently zoom through the store - OR order your ingredients online via Amazon or Instacart and have your groceries appear at your door.

Got food goals? Every Real Plans recipe lists comprehensive nutritional information based on the USDA database so you can easily see what you're eating whether you’re counting macros, calories, or just curious about what’s in your meal.

We’ve all been there. Brought home a bunch of beautiful produce with grand aspirations, only to open the fridge a week later to spoiled fruit and wilted veggies.

With Real Plans, you can say goodbye to excess wasted food. Our planner helps you plan and shop for only what you need to whip up delicious meals. You eat better and reduce wasted food, all the while saving you hundreds of dollars per year.

Desktop experience is only OK and the phone app needs. 1) it drives me nuts that the calendar runs from Friday until Thursday and you can't change the settings on either desktop or phone. 2) the app sucks for scheduling. Trying to drag and drop into tiny boxes on a phone is dumb. 3) the app often stalls / loads endlessly. 4) You can't update your pantry on the app.

Several glitches that make this annoying. 1. The recipes claim to be AIP, for example, but include ingredients that are not AIP such as sugar. 2. I can't click on the toolbar at the bottom of the screen, so there's no way to get from the search feature to the menu feature without first adding a meal to the menu. 3. Once I set my menu, I wanted to view it. None of the meals I'd planned where on the menu. Instead, some sample menu was already planned and added to my shopping list. Not worth it!

I like this service a lot on a laptop/desktop, but I do want to use the shopping list on my phone. I'm one of those weirdos who doesn't want to constantly have data on (it's cheaper for me to NOT have an unlimited plan). I pull up my list and it's there, but the behavior is wonky. 1. If I scroll up too high to see the top of the list (easy to do) it tries to refresh and then the screen freezes. I have to close the app, turn on my data, and restart the app. 2. Apparently I'm at my word limit.
