A meal planning system designed for your specific dietary needs.
Gluten-Free? Low-FODMAP? Low-Histamine? Peanut-Free? Vegetarian? No problem!
With over 1300 recipes to choose from, our unique meal planning system can customize your specific dietary needs and generate nourishing recipes that work for you. From there you can make a meal plan, save it to your calendar, and generate a customized shopping list. Your Meal Plans are saved so you can always go back and use them again.
How it Works
Create your Diet Profile
Choose from over 50 different diets and food allergens. Our meal planning tools allow you to choose from a wide variety of special diets and specific food allergens. Choose one diet or combine several diets and food allergens to create your personal diet profile. Our system knows which ingredients are allowed for each diet and food allergen so you don't have to worry about trying to find recipes that work for you. Then remove additional ingredients that don't work for you.
Search for Recipes
Use our powerful recipe search tools to find recipes. Find recipes based on season, cuisine, meal type, special occasion, flavors, and recipe categories! Combine your diet with these categories to find exactly what you need! Additionally, let's say you have a few different ingredients that need to be used up. You can plug those ingredients into a search and find recipes that contain those ingredients, reducing food waste and saving money. Easily add recipes to one of your Meal Plans or to a specific date on your calendar from the "Add Recipe" button on all recipes.
Create & Save Meal Plans
Create your own meal plans or save sample plans from this site. Create meal plans for special occasions, a meal plan with a list of your favorite recipes, a meal plan for a special diet you are following, or a meal plan you would like to share with another member. Additionally, the Diet page contains meal plans for different diets that you can save to your user profile. All of your Meal Plans are saved in your user profile so you can go back to them and use them over and over, editing to add or remove recipes as needed.
Add Recipes to your Calendar
As a member you have a meal planning calendar that you can add both recipes to as well as full meal plans. Easily edit your calendar and move recipes to different days, or delete recipes you have added and no longer wish to use. Use the month view, week view, list view, or day view to stay organized. Each recipe is color coded for the meal type you have chosen (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and Meal Prep). When you are ready to cook the recipes you have chosen for the day, click on today's date to show the full list of recipes.
Generate Shopping Lists
Generate customizable grocery shopping lists. Each Meal Plan generates a unique ingredient list to streamline your meal planning and save time grocery shopping. The ingredients list is totally customizable; quickly remove items that you already have and edit ingredient amounts if you need to. Then send it to your Shopping List. You can also enter in a date range on your calendar and send ingredients to your Shopping List this way. Our system allows you to meal plan and create shopping lists in different ways.
Stay Organized with Prep Notes
Our recipes contain Preparation Notes with steps that need to be done ahead of time. Once you add recipes to specific days on your calendar, any recipes that contain Preparation Notes will show up on your user profile in a timeline. If you need to soak beans or grains prior to making a recipe, our system will alert you to what needs to be done and when. Everything is organized for you under "This Week" in your user profile.

Healthy recipes for every diet.
Each of us has unique genetics, health conditions, lifestyle factors, and environmental stressors that change how our bodies respond to the foods we eat.
Digestion and immune functions can be compromised by what we eat and how we live. Food sensitivities—to gluten, dairy, corn, and soy—are a reality for many. You may have a specific health condition that requires a specific diet. As a result, some people thrive on one diet while others don’t. Your goal should not be to try the hot new lifestyle trend, but to find a way of eating that is best for you. Nourishing Meals® offers recipes for all diets, from keto and low-carb to vegan and pescatarian. We recognize the value in modifying your diet based on your unique needs, and updating it as you need to.
