    Aside from the recent Italian excursion, I’ve been challenging myself to eat at home more. Mealime has been a lifesaver for planning ahead with a busy work schedule and finding good low carb recipes for a perfect pre-bolus every time.

    Kids can be tough to cook for when they only touch 5 kinds of food. Luckily, Mealime, a food planning app, was designed with picky eaters in mind. Any of these recipes can be customized to avoid over 119 ingredients, and they are cooked in less than a half hour.

    These days it is hard to find food that doesn't have at least 20g of salt in it, and people on low sodium diets are finding it hard to find good food that fits their diet. Mealime offers hundreds of recipes that are easily customized to fit any diet!

    An upset stomach that lasts 12 hours makes the previous night out with your friends much less fun. Mealime gives you delicious and healthy recipes to help improve your digestive health, and you will be surprised at how much a healthy stomach helps with hangover symptoms.

    When you’re working until 5 p.m. every night and you don’t have time to figure out what to make for dinner, a meal planner can be a lifesaver. Mealime not only helps you plan but also has lots of recipes to try.

    Planning your meals can make things a lot easier on your budget and your time. When you plan your meals and freeze them, you can save $100s a month because all you have to do is take the food out of the freezer and pop it in the oven or crockpot rather than ordering out.

    When you are trying to find healthy recipes the last thing you want to do is spend 1-2 hours extra looking up nutritional information. This app is one I use personally and it makes it so easy.

    Though I don't have diabetes, I have found this app to be very helpful since I am trying to eat healthier. I lost 60 pounds on Weight Watchers and I'm not planning to back. It has recipes for all types of eating plans and needs.

  • What’s for dinner? Mealime! Apr 5, 2021

    By BekahA57
    My friend recommended that I start using Mealime for meal planning, and I’ve never looked back! There’s so many good things about this app- tasty recipes and the grocery list make life so much easier. We used to struggle with figuring out what to make for dinner, but not anymore! Now we always have the groceries on hand that we need for our recipes. We bought the pro version because we love it so much. We also have 3 kids and they approve of a lot of these recipes. My 6 year old son likes to help us pick the meals. Some improvements I can think of are having slow cooker or instant pot recipes. A lot of the recipes have lots of steps and I have gotten a little weary of making “fancy” meals. It may just be the meals that I pick, but I’ve only found a few truly easy meals. And after we bought the pro version I was expecting to be able to modify a meal plan whenever I wanted without having the grocery list reset- I would love it if this could be a feature. Sometimes I don’t want to redo the whole meal plan- I just want to add another meal to my already delicious plan! More allergy free recipes would be nice- one of my friends has a son with multiple allergies and when she put all of those in to avoid it left her with very few options. I’ve recommended this to many friends and will continue to do so! Thank you for making our life so much easier. ❤️

    This app has seriously changed everything. Scanning pinterest for hours for good recipes was fun but having to make a list of all the things needed for each recipe, going back to find the instructions with all the ads, and then find it to be more complicated than it needed to be was not fun. Mealime fixes all of that for me. Great recipes, makes a grocery list for me, clean eating without the cost of a subscription box. I feel like a chef and cooking is fun and easy again. I am obsessed!!
  • 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! 😜

    Oh my goodness! This app is fantastic!!! Not only can I specify the types of meals I like and list allergies (which includes the option of nightshades) and food dislikes, I can plan meals for the week and it generates a shopping list for me. Then, when I'm ready to cook, I can just follow the step by step instructions for each recipe. There are so many amazing recipes in the free version, but I'm so impressed by this app that I will definitely be upgrading to the pro version!
  • 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.

    I love this app. I can choose my dietary preferences & meals for the week. The app makes a shopping list which I have the option of scratching the items I have in my pantry, shopping for myself or ordering from my grocery to pickup. I think it is similar to a meal box plan without the high price tag. I like not have to think about, what are we going to have for dinner each day. Very easy to use.
  • 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!

    So far, I've done the grocery list and planned a weeks worth of meals. Had a minor glitch and had to redo my grocery list, but otherwise it's been pretty good. I love to cook and have no problem improvising, but when I get home and need to make dinner, I am just fried. 30 minute meals for 4 people and I'm digging it so far! Meal 2 is tonight.

    After some time preparing to move out of my parents house and into college, I realized I really needed to try to understand meal planning, hopefully before I went and would be too caught in a frenzy to be organized. So I got this, mainly because it appealed to various diets, it showed to have quick recipes, it was free, and seemed to make itself as a “hassle-free” app. Surprise- it lets you restrict recipes based on ingredients you don’t like-which is great because unfortunately I have a sensitive stomach and I just don’t deal with some foods. There were lots of recipes. From what I’ve seen,most are kind of out there- not just spaghetti, meatloaf or special casserole - the stuff you know how to make and really don’t need a planner for. No, these are meals I guess would cater to those looking to try new things. That or I really don’t eat different stuff a lot. Either way I enjoy what is offered. It helped me learn the basics of meal planning, and honestly I don’t really do much else- the app provides a shopping list for you from the meals and you can also add more items to get the complete shopping trip I use the 2 serving because I’ll make my dinner and use the second portion for next day lunch, which pinches more pennies and help me stay on the plan Overall great!!

    I love the meal plans. They also coordinate the meal and shopping list. It takes the guess work out of planning what's for dinner. If you don't like the meal plan that sounded good at the time but have a family of picky eaters you can modify the ingredients or choose a different meal. I really like the balance of the meal. I love the timer already set up in the program. It has really saved us from eating fast food every night. 🙂

  • One of my favorite apps! Feb 16, 2020

    By Gingersnap317
    I cannot say enough about how much I love Mealime. Not only has this app helped to reduce our household food waste to nearly nothing, but we are saving time, energy, money, and stress. Also, THE MEALS ARE DELICIOUS AND EASY. We have been using this app for nearly all of our meals over the past two months and have yet to find a recipe that we don’t like. My husband is a big eater, so I love that I can change the serving size to 6 and know that we will have the perfect amount for dinner and lunch for both of us. Never again do I need to fight for the leftovers. With the serving size feature, grocery shopping has never been easier. I love that the list tells me exactly the amount of each ingredient that I need to grab. No more in store guessing and no more spending an hour to create my list. (I also love that I can add my non food items to the list so that everything is in one place). Lastly, the instructions are everything I have ever wanted in a recipe. THE INGREDIENTS ARE IN LINE WITH THE DIRECTIONS... 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 no more scrolling up and down to figure out how much of each ingredient I need. (And no more scrolling through blogs about how the chef’s grandmother was a lemon farmer to get to the recipe...). Download this app and use it immediately, you will not regret it.

  • 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!

  • 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!
  • Love the app, one suggestion... Feb 9, 2021

    By Meaghan Hamilton
    I have been a meal planner for years but have gotten tired of scrolling through all of the articles and ads when I’m trying to save recipes on Pinterest. I was seeking an easier way to meal plan for my family without having the added frustration of curating all of the content myself. I discovered Mealime and signed up for a premium membership. It has been worth it for me and saves a ton of time and increases my enjoyment in cooking for my family. I have one suggestion for the platform, I really wish there were slow cooker/crockpot meals. Some weeks life is really busy but I still want to cook a homemade meal for my family. Using a crockpot makes that possible. Not having those recipes on this platform means that I have to toggle back-and-forth between this and Pinterest or load my own recipes which does not provide the same great format of other Mealime recipes where the ingredients are grouped with the instructions. If you added in some crockpot meals, this would be a perfect app 👍👍.

    This app is outstanding. My wife and I have not had a bad recipe yet, and we’re using the free version! We love the integration with Kroger which makes shopping easy. My only issue is that the directions are more for beginner cooks. The directions are actually great, don’t get me wrong. The directions instruct the cook how to prepare the meal so the timings work out. Other recipes that I’m accustomed to (and as an experienced cook of some 15 years) have the cook times for individual parts of the meal, whereas Mealime has you put something on the stove and prepare something else while it cooks without telling you how long it should cook. If the cooking times were included, that would account for some variation in how quickly novice and beginner cooks prepare the meals. Otherwise, we’re absolutely thrilled with this app. Even with the discrepancy above, we’re still going to use it and continue to cook with it!

    I MUST meal plan; we can’t just eat take out or frozen entrees with my food allergies. However, I HATE to meal plan because it takes so long to go through recipe books, decide what I want to make, write down the list of groceries, and organize the list according to the store sections. However, I found this app when looking for time-management stuff and I love it!! They let me select food aversions, diet plans (GF/LF for me), serving size, and then generate a list of recipes for you to choose from. THEN they generate the grocery list for you!! If you are like me and hate taking the time to meal- plan, this is definitely an app you should check out. I’m seriously IN LOVE! My only wish is that this could order groceries from the Walmart Grocery app; we aren’t in a major city where I can get the groceries delivered with the app’s current options. Update: I also wish that it had different dietary options like “low-sodium”, “heart-healthy”, and Low FODMAP.

    I have been using this app for several weeks now and absolutely love it. I create my meal plan and shop for the groceries right from the app. Delivery from the store and voila groceries show up at my door. No more waste from over shopping and no more not being able to make something because I forgot some key ingredient. The recipes are great and so far my family and I have loved every recipe we've tried. So, why didn't I give it five stars? A few reasons. 1) I strongly dislike apps that want you to pay a subscription. Also, other reviews indicate that the subscription isn't worth it and is almost impossible to cancel, so no thank you to that. I really wish they'd offer a version where you pay a one-time fee and no subscription. 2) You can't create multiple meal plans. So, I tried creating a second meal plan and it deleted everything I had selected for my first meal plan. Now it warns you before you try to do that, but when I first started using the app it didn't warn you. 3) You also can't add meals once you've started your plan, which is rather annoying. If you've missed a day or something, you have to do a whole new meal plan. 4) You can only add one personal recipe in the free version, which is also annoying. 5) You can't add recipe notes in the free version. Overall though, it's almost everything I'd want an app to be!
  • Helpful app, with some kinks :( Dec 27, 2017

    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.

    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

    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.

    I can no longer shop online with Amazon Fresh or Whole Foods. Is this a bug? (Edit) Cool, I'll update the review as soon as that gets fixed!
