The internet is full of plant based recipes. You see them on Instagram and Facebook, or while searching for good deals on kitchenware. Pinterest is overflowing with them. But what you don’t see very often are meal planning tools. Does a plant based meal planner even exist?
Yes, my dear, it does. Our Magic Meal Planner is powerful, easy to use, and customizable. And it’s included with a Plant Fueled Life membership. Sounds too good to be true? Allow us to convince you. We’ve compiled a list of eight amazing features of the Magic Meal Planner. There are more than that, sure, but you don’t have all day. So let’s get started!
1. Thousands of handcrafted plant based recipes to choose from
Say goodbye to pesky ads and Pinterest fails. Say hello to your kitchen BFF. Use our huge Recipe Vault, also included in Plant Fueled Life membership, to build custom meal plans. With 3,900+ recipes (and counting!) to choose from, there’s no limit to the kind of unique plans you can create. If that sounds overwhelming, don’t worry. When browsing for recipes to add to your plan, we’ll automatically recommend items that work well in the Magic Meal Planner.
2. Use our curated dinner plans for inspiration
Do you want to follow one of our Wizard Plans along with breakfasts and lunches? No problem. Add a Wizard Plan to your Magic Meal Planner in seconds, and add your other meals to round your week.
Love just one or two meals from a featured Wizard Plan? It’s easy to add what looks good to you.
Want to mix and match meals from multiple Wizard Plans? You do you, boo!
3. Save time grocery shopping
Each meal plan you create includes an interactive grocery list. The list broken is down by department, includes useful item information, and an area to add custom items. Adjusting recipes or servings also adjusts the grocery list automatically, so no more mid-aisle math panic. Plus, Plant Fueled Life works great on mobile, so you can check off your items as you put them in your cart. Who’s that effortlessly chic person with glowing skin breezing through the grocery store? It’s you!
4. Batching made easy
If you’ve been around a while, you’ll know we’re big fans of batch cooking. Setting aside a few hours over the weekend to cook the foundation of your meals for the week saves time and weekday headaches. You certainly don’t have to batch cook if you’re using the Magic Meal Planner, but if you want to, it’s easy to add recipes to your batching list.
Just check the Make Ahead box next to any recipes you’d like, and they’ll be added instantly. The best part? If you update your servings for the meal, the recipe in your batching list will be updated, too. Now, if that’s not magic, we don’t know what is.
If you haven’t batched before, Molly Patrick, our co-founder, shares how to make batch cooking part of your weekly routine in her podcast. Give this a listen and set yourself up for success.
5. Get creative
Some people like to use the Magic Meal Planner to create comprehensive plans for what to eat daily, including breakfast, lunch, dinner, and extras. Others prefer to use it to create a simple list of recipes that they can batch in advance or cook and eat whenever the mood strikes them.
You can label sections of your plan by days of the week, category (i.e. Breakfasts, Dressings and Sauces, Meals for the Kids, etc.), or whatever makes life easier. Just name your sections, add the recipes, and get back to living your life. Easy!
6. Keeping you organized
At the click of a button, you can switch your plan from a detailed view to a simplified list view and vice versa. You can even set whichever you prefer as your default.
7. Share your meal plans
Proud of your latest creation? Want to try your friend’s plan? Share them! Just mark your plan as shareable and copy the link to spread the love with other Plant Fueled Life members.
8. Reset and repeat
If you enjoy having the same meal each day, or you want to plan for leftovers, we’ve made it easy to duplicate meals. Just tap the copy button on a section to instantly create a duplicate. Then make any changes you want, all in seconds.
And when you’re ready to revisit a meal plan, you can quickly reset its checklists at the touch of a button. Then you’re ready to hit the grocery store and be the plant based baddie you are!
A powerful tool for eating more plants
The Magic Meal Planner is flexible and super-powered, not to mention fun. It’s your secret weapon for eating more plants while saving time.
