What people are saying

So far I am loving the meal planner! I have all the Plantstrong books and thought the meal planner might just be overkill, but that's not the case. I love going to the grocery store with a list of exactly what I need and I especially LOVE when I check out and my tab is far less than it used to be. I'm a Plantstrong fan for life!!!
I have only had this meal plan [for a short time] and I already love it. You guys have done a phenomenal job with this product. I have had other meal plans that send you recipes and grocery lists but they don't let you choose what you want to eat. Their lists are also not interactive like yours. Thank you for making my life easier and this diet much more manageable.
My husband and I are really enjoying the meals we have been fixing from your menu plans this first month on your plan. Thanks to lots of help from you folks I am now comfortable navigating your site and getting both my recipes and shopping lists sent to me. Four weeks in, I am now experiencing the time savings that I had hoped for and there are other advantages that I had not anticipated when I signed up

Yes! The meal planner makes following the Challenge easy. Simply choose the Seven-Day Rescue plan, and you will get Challenge-compliant meal recommendations that are personalized to you.

I’m done with my Seven-Day Rescue Challenge. Now what? down arrow

The Seven-Day Rescue Challenge is just the beginning of your PLANTSTRONG life! Depending on your situation and goals, you have a few choices for next steps. 1.) You can continue following the Seven-Day Rescue guidelines. Continuing on with the meal planner and the Seven-Day Rescue guidelines may help support the goals you’re still working toward. 2.) If you’re satisfied with your post-challenge results, you may consider easing into the traditional PLANTSTRONG guidelines which allow for additional foods such as tofu, tempeh, and more nuts and seeds. You can change your meal plan type at any time, so no matter which path you choose the meal planner will support your journey!

Can I scale up recipes to make for a party or leftovers? down arrow

Yes! First, make sure the recipe is added to a Menu. Open the recipe from the Menus page and increase or decrease the number of servings for that meal.

For leftovers, just click the Leftovers button on the recipe to double it! Your grocery list will automatically update.
