Large or small family?

With Real Plans, you simply dial up how many people you want to cook for and choose how many breakfast, lunch, and dinners you want to make each week. It couldn’t be simpler. You select your recipes (or allow them to be selected for you) and the incredible brains at Real Plans will create a shopping list for you which you can print, email or open on your smartphone app.

The picky members of your family are catered for, and recipes for those with allergies can be easily planned. Simply tell Real Plans to exclude certain ingredients, and they will never show up in your meal plan.

No dairy? No problem. No eggs? No problem. No Brussels sprouts? No problem.

And remember all recipes from Ditch The Carbs are already free from sugar, gluten, grains, wheat, soy, and legumes. We’ve got you covered!

Can I Personalise My Healthy Meal Plans?

It’s totally up to you whether you pick all your meals yourself or you can let Real Plans choose them for you.

Want some fun? Why not try the recipe roulette. You spin the wheel and give each recipe the ‘thumbs up’ or the ‘thumbs down’ and it will take the recipe away or add the recipe to your week’s plan. This is a great way to jazz things up and try new recipes. My kids love this function.

Southern or Northern hemisphere? You can set that too.

Can I Share My Shopping List?

This is one of the most underrated features, but let me tell you, it has absolutely revolutionised how I do the grocery shopping. This function alone is worth its weight in gold!

With each week’s meal plan, a shopping list is calculated for you. All I do is remove the ingredients that I know I already have, my shopping list is automatically updated, then I share the list with my husband. I can email it to him or he can look at the Real Plans app on his phone.

The shopping list is organised into fresh produce, meat, seafood, bulk, eggs, dairy, canned goods etc.

My husband quickly visits all the sections and buys EXACTLY what we need. No more extras. And what makes it “husband proof”? Each grocery item has a photo! Dear Lord someone has been listening to my grocery prayers. No more mistakes. No more wasted food.

Will Meal Planning Save Me $ Money?

You will save more money each week than it costs to belong to Real Plans.

Organising meals eliminates wasted time and money each week. Meals are planned, dietary preferences are catered for and a shopping list is generated which you can print, carry on your phone or share with your partner to collect on their way home.

Once your shopping list is created for you, simply remove all the items you have in your kitchen already, immediately stopping duplicated ingredients and food wastage. It’s kinder on your wallet and kinder on the environment.

You will actually begin to save money. No more wasted ingredients. No more expensive take-outs. No more unused food thrown away each week. No more wilting vegetables hiding at the back of the fridge. No more unnecessary trips to the supermarket, so save fuel and time.

    Hi Libby … don’t worry … all sorted out thanks.

  2. Is this meal plan only for dinner? Or is there an option for brats and lunch?

    1. I use this for my entire family of 5. I have 3 children so I dial up the recipes for 6 so I have some leftovers the next day for school lunches or their breakfast.

  3. This is so awesome. I love how your plans are personalized. People vary so much in their needs and preferences. Having the same meal plan for every person isn’t particularly effective.

    1. Thanks Vincent. I met someone last week who has just started the meal planning service, and we waxed lyrical about all the neat features. My favourite is the recipe roulette (oh, and of course the shopping list it creates for me).

  4. Kiela-lee says:

    Hi, are these meal plans versitile enough that is doesn’t matter what country you live in? I.e. the food is generic – I live in New Zealand and have found other meal plans not suitable due to food I cannot source

    1. YES! I am in NZ too 🙂 . I select Ditch The Carbs recipes so I know the macros will suit me. I personally like to choose what we eat each week. The programme will send you a week’s meal plan at a time (on the day of the week that you specify works for your family) then I click and drag some meals around. What I love is the shopping list it generates. That itself is worth its weight in gold.

  5. Carrol Ann Smith says:

    Thanks for sending this link, Libby. I have only one question: will it work for a family of one. I live alone these days and often find it challenging to eat well.

    1. Yes, you can set the number of servings you wish to cook for, and the ingredients are then calculated for you. A recipe may say 0.6 egg, for example, so you probably want to dial the servings to something that is whole numbers. Alternatively, cook a few servings and keep the leftovers in the freezer for a quick and easy freezer meal.

  6. Would totally sign up if there was an egg free version.

  7. I love that you’re in our part of the world but why oh why is everything in US$? Also, are your ingredient measures the same as Aus measures?

    1. Hey there Liz, nice to see another kiwi/Aussie here. My prices are in US$ because 80% of my readers are from the US and the other 20% are international so it is the currency the world understands. I use both measurements in my recipes. I prefer metric but I also show the conversion for cups and ounces too. All my recipes show both. I use a 15ml tablespoon, 5ml teaspoon, 250ml cup.
