  • Happiness is Mealime Feb 8, 2019

    By Spurloo
    My husband and I work full time and have always had a hard time meal planning. We both have food allergies so eating out is complicated as well. This has led to a lot of hangry nights trying to figure out what to eat. Enter Mealime. I can plan our meals in minutes. I select the 4 person meals so we can eat the same dinner 2 nights in a row to make life easier. Our groceries budget has decreased dramatically and I have more room in my fridge and pantry but I have meals to use the ingredients I have on hand. It’s way less food waste than when we would just buy food on sale and create something during the week. Instead of going to 2-3 stores to shop sales, I now save so much money that I am saving I can just go to 1 store and buy everything even if it’s full price. We haven’t upgraded to the pro version yet but if they do a recipe import feature I’ll be upgrading! The free version is awesome. It might have a few issues with editing the plan but even still this thing is the best app I’ve ever downloaded. The food is amazing. The Korean Beef Bowl is one our favorite recipes, and the Cobb Salad is super yummy too. Keep up the good work Mealime. I almost feel you should turn non-profit since you are do-gooders and go donation based. You might make more money by saving families and moms from the dreaded meal planning and list preparation! 😜

    Great recipes. I have made several. I like that the app builds the grocery list for you. This makes life simple. The only recommendation I have that would make this a 5 star review would be to add Instant Pot recipes or conversions. My Instant Pot is a time saver and I try to use it often. If there were Instant Pot recipes or conversions I would use this app every week rather than on occasion.

  • Great app- reduce food waste Jan 9, 2020

    By H tothe B
    Loved the app because you choose recipes for the week, and it will auto compose a grocery list- yay! Even better was after you purchased the grocery item or if you already had that item in your cupboard you could mark it off the list and it would disappear- easy peasy. Loved the concept of reducing food waste too! Going to be candid about the part I was disappointed with- not a big fan of the recipes. Maybe I chose not great recipes? I felt there was limited selection of different types of recipes - The 4 recipes I’ve done so far are wordy, lengthy, more info than necessary, plus it’s kinda hard to follow because there is a lot of unnecessary prep and lots of dishes to use- which means extra cleaning afterward... the recipes are a little over complicated. A good dish doesn’t need to be overloaded with spice or ingredients. I have a family, last thing I want to do is use a ton of extra pots/pans/bowls and kitchen items, stove/oven/ and 5 different mixing bowls plus something else all just for one meal. I don’t need the fanciest dinner in the world, just something healthy, straightforward, easy. If I had all the time in the world would be fine, but I’m a busy mom and if some recipes could be a little easier and more simplified than I don’t mind doing a few other recipes that are more involved. A better selection of recipes, include options for crockpot recipes, would make me want to use this app weekly.

    Game-changer for me. I'm not a good cook and it's probably the only place I've found where ingredient quantities are just right in general (and expressed in metric units!). Also the instructions are easy to follow and timing fits well. I now eat more varied, grocery shopping is way easier and I waste less food.

  • The app I tell everyone I know about! Mar 24, 2018

    By Jbp0307
    I used a meal kit delivery for awhile and loved it but when it was time to start pinching some pennies and we eliminated that from our budget. I became so overwhelmed trying to meal plan that I thought we’d just eat the same thing every night because I couldn’t possibly come up with enough lunches and dinners for everyone. I decided to see if there was any kind of app that could possibly help me and stumbled upon Mealime and since my first time using it I have loved it so much I tell everyone I know about it. We have not had a bad recipe yet, my husband loves the meals, my kids love the meals, and I enjoy cooking with the app. There are so many things that seem so simple they do but are missing from other apps: In cooking mode, they list out the amount of each ingredient you need. This is huge because other apps don’t tell you how much and you’re constantly having to scroll from your list of ingredients back to the recipe part. They offer suggestions for alternative ingredients which has helped me save some money if something was too expensive or out of stock I could replace it. After about 2 months using the app every week and being 100% satisfied I did decide to go with the pro version. And I still tell everyone I know to get this app! I love it and only have good things to say about it!

    I used to love this app, but with the new update half my ingredients don't make it on the list. It says they are added, but then only some are actually added and others not. It was not a good surprise when I went to the store and my list was not the one I created. I would like the old version back! It worked great! Now I may need to find a new app.

    Tried a couple of recipes, love them so far, UI is intuitive, love that it adds the groceries you need to a compiled list - very convenient! I do wish we could customize the recipes to our liking within the app rather than simply remember our customizations (e.g. quinoa instead of couscous so that we don't have to purchase, and cook, both quinoa and couscous)

  • Great for a beginner like me May 8, 2020

    By Llauma
    I will readily tell anyone and everyone that I can’t cook. So guess what I’ve finally had to learn to do during this pandemic since I live alone! This app has been super helpful for me so far. I have to be honest and say I’ve only used it for one week, but I am absolutely going to keep using it. It’s fantastic for compiling your grocery list to be only exactly what you need for the recipes you select. Only criticism is that the recipe instructions can be a little too wordy at times. I’m not *actually* a complete novice in the kitchen and the way these are written can be a little difficult to follow. I live alone and from the first 4 recipes that I’ve tried, I’ve found that I can multiple meals from one recipe - I selected 2 people (the fewest you can select) to make the smallest recipe, but for 3 of them so far I was actually able to get 3-4 meals. Maybe I just don’t eat much? But it’s fantastic having leftovers for lunch and/or dinner the next day too. Just don’t actually make everything through to completion (e.g. for tacos, save each item separately and assemble when ready to eat leftovers). I definitely had less food waste using this to plan meals and shop, and I was able to get what I needed quickly while in the grocery store. Both huge pros! Thank you, developers!

  • Super great, one change to make it 5 stars Feb 19, 2019

    By New2Paleo
    I want so so so bad to give this app 5 stars. It deserves it. It really does. I cannot appreciate enough the magic this app brings to my kitchen when I can enter gluten & dairy allergies & instead of just taking away all the recipes that don’t specifically say they’re GF/DF, it just adjusts the recipes to make them what I can have! So instead of wheat/white flour, use GF all purpose flour, or almond flour, or instead of sautéing something in butter, sauté it in oil. These are all changes that I would naturally make if I was following a recipe in order to fit my allergies, but they do it for me. It’s the most beautiful thing I have seen in a recipe app by far. That alone makes me want to give it 10 stars. The only only drawback I have is that it doesn’t adjust recipes for families. I have a family of five, and we like to have leftovers. The most I can set this app to is 4 servings, which obviously doesn’t even feed everyone in my house for dinner, let alone leftovers. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see that option upped to any number a family might need instead of limiting to 4. It also seems the total cook time is always WAY more than what is listed, even if I’ve done some steps ahead of time. Maybe it’s just me. But otherwise, I really do love this app & am so grateful for the allergy options. Best app for allergy recipes I’ve EVER seen!

    I wasn't sure what to expect, going into this app. I really enjoy a lot of the features. I'm sad that I don't have access to the adding recipes feature, but that is just because I'm too cheap to pay for the pro version, lol. What a great help this is to me and made meal planning a breeze. The only thing I would say, is the app needs more kid friendly meals.

  • My go-to for meal planning! One request tho Nov 13, 2019

    By mirliu
    I’ve relied on Mealime for meal planning for over a year now. The app is super easy to use, the meals are delicious, and I feel good after each meal knowing I’m eating much healthier than getting takeout food. I love the convenience of the recipe list and all the features you get even without signing up for premium. The selection of Asian meals on the app could be improved- I’d love to see some more authentic Chinese recipes. Or just more exotic recipes in general. I’ve liked everything I’ve made with Mealime, but the recipes play it a tad too safe in my opinion. But this is just a small wish and I love the app regardless. What I REALLY want to see in this app is meal prep capability. I’d love to see a function where, after you select your meals for the week, the app tells you what you can chop/cook ahead of time. I currently try to figure it out myself but it involves a lot of clicking back and forth between the ingredients list and the recipes. If you guys add meal prep functionality, I would sign up for premium for sure!

    I recently had another app, but what i like is that i am able to add my own recipes! Not to mention the grocery list is super helpful ! Will update after more time has passed, but for now 3 stars because it lagged a bit at the beginning 😀

    Just downloaded it. Lots of good recipes, but I'm disappointed that every single breakfast recipe is a "pro" meaning you have to pay about $50 a year or $7 a month. You can't plan a full day unless you buy it. I particularly needed new healthy breakfast ideas in this format. The features look good, shopping list etc.

  • Helpful app, with some kinks :( Dec 27, 2017

    By MrsJLH
    I like the recipes, the grocery list integration, and easy to follow recipes. It calculates macros. But if you want to modify any recipes you can’t remove ingredients and have it calculate for you. Still it makes meal prep a bit easier especially if you get bored of the same foods quickly like i do! What’s most annoying about this app is being unable to modify a meal plan. For example if I picked out 4 recipes for the week and I only meant to pick 3, you can’t just subtract it from your meal plan. You have to create a new one. In the FAQs the reason they gave was that this eliminates food waste. That is a LAME explanation, app developers!!! Fix this please. I am all for minimizing food waste. But what if you haven’t even made it to the store before buying what you need for the meal plan? Or you want to modify while at the store?? People have lives and things come up and we need flexibility in meal planning.... having to start a new one is a pain. Overall, I would recommend this app. Upgrading seems to be worth it, I still have to see. But if you don’t upgrade the app is incessantly trying to get you to upgrade.

  • Good but needs some work Jan 6, 2018

    By Mmnomnom
    I downloaded this after another app I used stopped re-freshing. A pro to this is you can choose your dietary needs which I really liked. However, you can only choose one, where I would liked to have picked 2 options. I keep Paleo but can’t afford to eat meat everyday, hence why I also would like the vegetarian option. My biggest issue is that the Paleo recipes aren’t Paleo. Many of them contain dairy of some sort, which is only allowed with Primal, not Paleo. I’ve also seen legumes which are a big no with both Paleo and Primal, and some added sweeteners which generally should be avoided on these diets. My only reason for giving 3 instead of 4 stars is due to the fact that I must modify most of these recipes to actually be Paleo. I also found the recipes to be similar after a while, and they are mostly lunch/dinner focused with practically no snack or dessert options. That being said, the recipes aren’t loaded with pre-prepared ingredient needs, which I really appreciate, and there’s always something that will help me inspire my next dinner.

  • Good app, recommended functionality below Apr 7, 2018

    By Shaevins
    I love this app, but it could use some advancements to be great: 1) a way to add recipes and 2) better usability with adding individual shopping cart items. For example, typing the item, and then taking three more steps to edit it is annoying. As for the option to add recipes, it just needs to be a storage option, some place where we can import our own, and still have to individually add everything. It’d be nice to automate that, but this should be step one. No one is going to give up all their recipes to use yours. Yours aren’t that great. The monthly fee Pro version only gets you more recipes, really. If you’re going to charge monthly for this app, you need to provide more than just additional recipes. Additional recipes are nice, but that’s not a better function, it’s just more stuff. Add some functionality that will allow for individualized meal planning for each user. Then, you have something worth charging for monthly.
