Dinner Made Easy with Meal Plans from Cooking Planit

I've mentioned before how much I love meal planning.  In fact, I've been planning to do a post to show you how I do it, but I haven't gotten around to it yet!  Today though, I'm excited to tell you about a new program that is going to make your life easier.  I've been using it since it launched last week and I already love it.

So what am I talking about?  The new Meal Plans from Cooking Planit!  It's a new addition to a product I already love--Cooking Planit.  Do you remember when I first introduced you to Cooking Planit?  It's basically your kitchen GPS.  You can search for a recipe, build a meal, and then the cooking app on your phone or tablet (available for Android or iPhone) will walk you through the entire process, even ensuring that all the components of your meal are done at the same time.  What a stress-saver!

Now the creators of Cooking Planit have taken their product one step further and are offering meal plans.  It's super budget friendly (which I love!) at only $3.99 a month (or $9.99 a quarter or $34.99 a year).  For the price of a coffee, someone will plan your meals for you!  Yes, please! ;)

You can choose from four different meal plans: Vegetarian, Gluten Free, Under 40 Minutes, and Surprise Me.  There's literally something for everyone.  Regardless of what plan you choose, you have access to the other 3 as well (so 20 meal ideas each week!), and you can view past menus in your archive.  I opted for the Under 40 Minute meal plan and was thrilled to see what I can put on the table in a short amount of time.  I was given meals like Stir Fry Soba and Mmm-meatballs.  If you don't care for one of the meal ideas, you can easily swap it out for another one on the website.  Meal Plans are emailed straight to your inbox every Thursday, giving you the entire weekend to do your grocery shopping for the next week.  Oh, and Cooking Planit helps you create a grocery list too, so you always have your ingredients in the house!

The steps are simple: subscribe to the Meal Plans (see how below!), receive your weekly menu plan by email, add ingredients to your grocery list and go shopping, then get cooking!  Don't forget to use the Meal Co-Pilot to guide you through each step.  I love how this program simplifies my life and takes the guesswork out of what's for dinner!  You can watch this quick video to see how easy it is!

If you love this idea (and I'm sure you do!), I bet you're dying to try it out.  Cooking Planit has generously offered your first 60 days free to all of my readers!  Visit Cooking Planit and use the code CPspecial60 to give it a try!  They're also giving away 3 one year Meal Plan subscriptions and one of those winners will also receive a $25 Visa gift card!  You can enter to win using the Rafflecopter form below.
