The app I tell everyone I know about!
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!
For just starting out, goes above and beyond
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 have the pro version and it’s changed my kitchen game! I can cook, but actually thinking up what to cook and then making sure I had all the ingredients was just about impossible for me and I’ve spent years of frantic searching through the freezer every night at 5pm trying to come up with something to cook. Mealtime saves me time, effort, and most importantly money while providing absolutely delicious, healthy, impressive meals which are quick to put on the table. My only disappointment has been with the Indian recipes so far...being English I am used to a wide variety of authentic and delicious curries, and unfortunately this app does tend to rely on an overuse of ‘curry powder’ and turmeric instead of the subtle blending of many spices that true Indian food is renowned for. I don’t know if this is to cater for more American tastes or just to make the recipe simpler to cook, but every curry I’ve tried so far I have had to doctor up with more spices for a better, more authentic flavour. Having said that, every other type of recipe has been fantastic. This app is bringing back a love of cooking to my life instead of a jaded, repetitive production line of boring staples. Thank you!
Super great, one change to make it 5 stars
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!
Trying this app was one of my better decisions
My husband and I have had a heck of a time over the years figuring out dinner every day. I'm vegan and he's vegetarian, and there aren't really any meal kit services that cater to our diets. We tried one but found we didn't go through the food fast enough and hated all the packaging waste. Mealime has helped us make figuring out dinner easier, helps us avoid food and packaging waste, saves us money at the grocery store by only buying exactly what we need, and has made our evenings at home much more enjoyable. I'm worried about getting burned out on the vegan recipes because there don't seem to be many, but we'll see what gets added over time. I wish the cooking mode included pictures of prep or GIFs of how to properly cut/prep the produce to help those of us that aren't experienced chefs. I'd also be nice to look at all available dishes at any time without having to cancel out the current meal plan. But even with room for improvement this is a great app and I'll happily subscribe as long as more vegan dishes keep getting added (don't be afraid to call for veggie cheese like Daiya or meat substitutes in the future!).
This is the first review I have written for any app ever. :) I’ve been really pleased with using this for the past month or so. I have a super long commute and an insane work schedule which used to make me dread coming home and either eating the same meal I’d eaten the entire week or ordering take out. With this app, I have an awesome variety of recipes at my finger tips which are nutritious, quick, and uncomplicated. It is such a relief to have a grocery list already out together for my shopping trip; it’s cost- and time-effective. The cost usually ends up a bit less than if I had put together my own menu for two people for an entire week’s worth of lunches and dinners and it only takes 15 minutes to put a menu together. My boyfriend appreciates the variety, and I appreciate how much money we’re saving by not doing take out. :) I also really appreciate how little food waste I have at the end of the week. All in all, I’m really pleased with this app. I use the free version now but am keen to try the paid version as it would be nice to look up lower calorie recipes and save our favorites.
A must for busy mom’s
I love the flexibility of being able to choose your own meals. We have tried for the last several years ( 7+) various home boxed meals like plated, blue apron, home chef … After a while those meals get redundant and recycled. What I like about this, is I can search for the ingredients that I have in and use those ingredients up, and also be able to choose the flexibility of what my family will eat. The home box services, you get five meals but you’re at their discretion and if you don’t like a recipe you have no way to opt out of that recipe. With this where you’re picking your meal, you were in complete control and can admit or add ingredients as you see fit. I love the integration into my local grocery stores online pick up, so I can meal plan and grocery shop all in one 30 minute sitting. I also like the fact that I can start over, and change my meal plan if the groceries for that week will exceed our weekly budget. We’ve only been using this app for about a month, so I sure hope that the recipes continue to be fresh and not become redundant and recycled.
Meal planning made easy and cost effective
So this app runs beautifully. They have made it very streamline and user friendly. I wanted to find something that would truly be a go to tool for meal planning. Organizing my shopping list. I know it’s going to be healthy. However just a tiny thing and it is most likely a personal preference of how the order the instructions for cooking. Some things you would thing you would do before others type of thing. But so minor compared to how effective this app is. We try to plan about five meals a week. Leaving two night for us to go out. Two people eating and I do the four serving size so I can have lunch the next day. The most I have spent on groceries for just the meal planning has been $81. That’s honestly cheap for Fresh ingredients. I am honestly very impressed with this app. *edit* just a thought as a step up for the app to offer for the subscription, or do a subscription pro with a section the has videos of the meals the person selects that week. So those that are learning to cook have more direction. Learning tools and basic knowledge.
Making me and my s/o’s life a tad easier
This app is literally making meal planning for my bf and I so much easier. I love how you can choose your eating preferences and still exclude ingredients you don’t like! Also, love that you can choose between 2 to 4 servings (we choose 4 so we have leftovers for lunch the next day) and it gives breaks down the ingredients accordingly - making grocery shopping a breeze, especially since you can mark off items you already have. The recipes I’ve tried thus far have been easy and so delicious! Minus one star bc you can’t choose BOTH pescatarian AND low carb eating preferences as a combination - it’s one or the other. Also minus one star because when I do choose pescatarian it’s almost as if the app assumes I want fish/shellfish included in every entree....I would like to see more vegetarian options so I can get a break from seafood. There’s ways to work around these issues, but would be nice if it was a little easier. Overall, I would definitely recommend this app to anyone who’s just starting to meal plan!
Great for elimination diet (AIP) food planning
I am just beginning to follow the autoimmune protocol diet for addressing some ongoing health issues, and this app has been so helpful. The free version has some preference availability, but the full/upgraded version allowed me to set preferences so every meal I make is safe for me to eat while my choice of ingredients is limited. The time estimates are pretty good if you are quick with chopping up foods and don’t get distracted. I think I took a little longer than the time listed, but I also was prepping some other food at the same time. I chose the 4 person option for my first recipes, and the portions are really big, so I may try the 2 person next time. I am glad to have the leftovers to limit the number of times I am cooking during the week, though. It is easy to adjust preferences, and the automatic shopping list generation is GREAT. I am so thankful that my friend introduced me to this app, and I am going to tell my nutritionist, friends, and anyone else who will listen about it, too.
I have only been using this app for a few weeks, but I already have a lot of affection for it. Cooking has been difficult for me and now that I have a two year old and ten month old twins, it has only gotten harder. For the longest time, I would look for recipes on Pinterest only to struggle with putting together a grocery list from there. The fact that this app populates a grocery list for you is enough in and of itself, but the benefits do not stop there. The lack of ads allows me to view the recipes with ease. It’s also amazing that they put the portions of ingredients within the instructions so that you do not have to keep flipping back and forth through the recipe. Every recipe I have made so far contains consistently clear and simple instructions, so novice and nervous cooks like myself don’t mess up the meal. I’m currently using the free version, but my husband and I are considering the paid version if only to express our gratitude to the creators. Thank you, Mealime!!!
Helpful app, with some kinks :(
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.
This app has been the answer to my prayers! It takes the guesswork out of cooking delicious and healthy and different meals. Before I had this app, every time I stepped into the kitchen, I had to make gazillion decisions about what to cook. I was eating a lot of the same food. With this app, I have different recipes—a good balance of fish and poultry and game (I need my protein)—and the recipes are so tasty! And I am not agonizing about what I will eat. I actually look forward to cooking AND to eating! Unless this sounds like I am gaining weight, let me say that I have lost weight, so now my friends are asking me how I did it. I lost weight with this app and with Jerzy’s Happy Body workout (no, no one is paying me for this! I write out of pure gratitude that both this meal app and the workout program have improved my lifestyle!) I use this app with an online service to do the grocery shopping, so now I am saving time and can take a breather! I cannot stop praising this app and have told all my friends about it.
Best Meal App EVER!
This app is an absolute LIFESAVER when it comes to saving time, money, and sanity! I’ve tried a plethora of grocery list and meal planning apps over the years, but they all seemed to fall short; using the apps actually turned out to be more stressful than worrying about meals. This app is like no other food planning app I’ve tried. It’s easy to use, it actually reduces stress instead of adding another thing to worry about, it LOOKS FABULOUS (so professional and inspiring), and it actually functions even if you don’t buy the premium version! One of the things that frustrates me the most when it comes to apps is the sneaky way many companies try to force you to buy the premium version of the app by making the free version virtually unusable! This is no such app, and I LOVE the way it works even without buying the premium version. I may just buy it to support the company and thank them for making my life so much easier without tricking me! Thank you so much Mealime makers!! 💗
My go-to for meal planning! One request tho
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!
