I’m extremely challenged when it comes to meal planning. I just can’t handle it! I don’t why, exactly, I just want someone who’ll make the list for me and send it along.
That’s why I’m excited to share about the FitsMe Web app! This is a web-only app that allows you set up a customized meal plan *just* for you and your family’s “Food Personality.”
You can set up it up to eliminate recipes that contain common allergens and restrictions, like gluten, peanuts or shellfish. You can also set a specific diet, which makes this great for Paleo, FODMAP, vegans and more. Then you can select specific cuisines as well. You can add more restrictions and cuisines if you like as well, so if you’re worried about arsenic, for example, you can simply add “rice” to the restrictions list.
Finally, and this my favorite part, you can add likes and dislikes. This is a great way to cover anything else that got left out, but also to get more specific. For example, love veggies, but hate lima beans (raising my hand). Then simply add them to dislikes. Here’s are my likes and dislikes:
You can also add likes for the things you prefer – like ghee or quinoa – so that you can get more recipes with these ingredients. Finally you have additional preferences for anything else you might have left out.
Once done, head over to “Plans” and click the “New Plan” button. Name your plan and add what meals you’d like – breakfast, dinner, snack, etc. – for each day. You can also select or deselect your days in one lump. Click create plan and the Fitsme app creates a plan. It automatically loads the current day and loads up recipes for all the meal times you scheduled in your plan. From here, you can see an image, the time it takes to make it and more options, such as the ability to move the recipe’s slot in the plan (from dinner to lunch, for example) or add to another plan you’ve created. You can also select “like” or “dislike” so Fitsme can update preferences per recipes.
You can then open the recipe. Fitsme takes you directly to the online recipe while still keeping the Fitsme bar at the top, so you can pop right back to your meal plan.
All in all, Fitsme is a great tool to sort an internet full of delicious recipes and narrow it downs to the ones that work best for your family! Check out Fitsme to start meal planning today! Also check out Fitsme on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
