Simply amazing 5/5
This has made my life 1,000 times easier!!!
Exactly what I’ve been looking for 5/5
The worst part of meal planning for me is compiling the grocery list. For weeks I’ve been saying “I wish there was something that just generated the list based on my recipes.”
FINALLY I found it! We just left the grocery store after using this app, and it was perfect. It organized the items by type (produce, dairy, etc) exactly like I like to do.
Life changing 5/5
This app is amazing!!!
Amaze Balls 5/5
I normally don’t cook and this app made it simple and easy. Love it!
Meal Planning at the highest level amazing!!! 5/5
I absolutely love this app!!! The meals are easy, quick and tasty!! I have recommended this app to all of my friends.
Too restrictive for my preference. 2/5
By Shady Shopkeep
This app seems like it could be really useful to me, but there is no functionality for creating new recipes; everything is pre-loaded into the app. I have a lot of old recipes collected over the years from family and I wanted to have an app where I could easily store, organize and plan for them, but this app just isn’t flexible enough for that, and it appears to be by design. I’d prefer to have something that I can use to plan with my own recipes, not recipes from a pre-made list.
Great recipes and grocery list 4/5
I really like the recipes this app offers and the grocery list is very helpful. The only thing that this app does not offer is a way to creat your own recipes or edit the ones you find.
Such a huge time saver! 5/5
This app is amazing… So easy and intuitive to use. Just choose the recipes that you want for the week and it automatically generates a grocery list for you for all of your meals combined. As you shop you can easily tap each item that you’ve just bought to narrow down the list as you go. Made shopping so fast and easy. I haven’t tried the recipes yet but they look delicious from the pictures. Really nice that you get so many features for free. Totally awesome app so far.
Nutritional information 3/5
By health fir
Nutritional facts should be free. I understand you have to have a way to support the app, but the nutritional facts are really important to a lot of people, this is a big pitfall for me with this app
Best meal planner ever! 5/5
This is genius! If you've ever been frustrated with the "What's for dinner?" dilemma after work, this is the answer. I have celiac, it allows the user the ability to restrict the recipe selection based on food preferences, likes, dislikes, allergies and other dietary restriction. It built my shopping list (already have something in the pantry? Check it off!). When you're done shopping... cook! As you complete the directions to prepare each meal the meal stays in your plan but it's ghosted so you know that meal isn't an option for the rest of the week. Healthy, relatively quick to prepare meals of your choosing at your fingertips. I'm sold.
By Big City Dreams
I love this app, and I’ve gotten 10 people hooked on it as well. The meals are easy to follow, delicious, and unique. Having mealime premium has helped me track my macros and I’ve lost 5 pounds just from being able to track my nutrition better.
In addition this app has helped me save so much money and greatly reduce my food waste. My weekly grocery bill went from ~$100 a week down to ~$30. I cannot recommend mealime enough!
Healthy meals 5/5
By Momma Megan
Excellent meal options with easy directions and ingredients to use. I’ve been very happy with this app.
Eezzee peezzee! 5/5
So far really love the ease of shopping list and meal planning. Maybe the the that gets me organized.
Best meal planner I’ve used 5/5
I only sub to one app and this is that one. This makes my meal planing for the week super easy and most every meal I have made has been great. The portions are great for dinner and to have lunch the next day. I have saved way more money than the app cost me per month. I have even lost weight using this app for most of my meals. A must have app for me and my family.
Two things I would like to see added one.
1. Larger potion options. I have a big family and the potion options are not big enough to feed 3 kids two adults and still have lunch the next day for the adults.
2. Adding some breakfast meal options would help with my weekly meal plans.
Life changing!! 5/5
Absolutely amazing! It makes eating right easy for my husband and our newborn but more importantly it makes it taste good! We usually get burned out eating right because quick and easy lean protein, carbs and veggies gets boring. This gives us variety, direction and ease on our little baby budget.
Best meal planner I have found 4/5
I LOVE this app! The grocery list is a great addition and recipes are tasty and healthy.
It makes picking meals and shopping so much more organized.
I really wanted to UPGRADE TO THE PRO version but not for a monthly fee! I would purchase it at a fixed price though. That is the reason for only 4 stars
Makes healthy eating simple and fun! 5/5
Amazing recipes, user friendly platform, healthy and tasty recipes, and very detailed instructions! I love this app I use it all the time to make dinner and lunch. The meals are always delicious and I’m always learning something new. Give this app a try if you are looking for an easy way to meal plan and start your health journey!
A must have! 5/5
I almost never feel like posting reviews, but this app has totally transformed the way I eat. I have tried so many calorie counters, meal planners, etc., and I have never been able to consistently find healthy food that I actually like. Mealtime changes all of that. It lets you choose if you have a dietary preference (low carb, paleo, vegetarian, etc.), AND lets you select individual foods you don’t like, which has always been the hang up I’ve had. I can spend all day googling healthy recipes, but at the end of the day, they’re probably going to include foods I don’t want to eat. Not here.
The UI is great: very clean, simple, and easy to find what you need. Very intuitive user experience so that anybody can use this with ease. The shopping list feature is great, so i can easily buy the whole week of groceries at one time. I literally can’t say enough about how much I’ve enjoyed using this. Highly recommend!
Best Cooking/Grocery Shopping App EVER!!! 5/5
Seamless performance, and I must say I have tried dozens of these cooking apps trying to find the right one. Low-and-behold Mealime... my savior. Well done to whoever put it together. Love the fact it’s completely customizable and makes things things easy to understand. ALSO.... the wave your hand in front of your phone to scroll through steps. Quite genius. Bravo boys. Bravo.
Easiest Meal Planning 5/5
By Bryan rd
So I’ve always wanted to try a meal service, but I’m a mother of 4 and it doesn’t fit in our budget. The big reason I wanted one is because I love to cook, but hate having to try to plan meals every week and day after work. This app has made the past 2 weeks the easiest 2 weeks of meals for my family ever. I pick my recipes, go shopping with the list (I have to adjust quantities a bit for my larger family), come home from work, pick which one I want to make & I have everything for it in my kitchen. LOVE THIS APP
The best! 5/5
Literally my favorite app
Great for the easily confused. 5/5
...such as myself. I get overwhelmed by too many instructions. This app is very user friendly and it allows you to see all the ingredients and their measurements as you go along, no more scrolling or flipping pages. Shopping is a breeze with their super handy check-off lists. I love it.
Oh, and the meal recipes are good too ;)
Family counselor 5/5
I love this free app and recommend it to clients all the time who are wanting to stay on a budget and manage their lives better. It saves time and the grocery list is amazing when you are in Walmart with 3 little ones. Just so helpful. I love not having any wasted groceries because you only buy what you need and use. So fresh and a great variety. My family loves it too!
Delicious, easy & healthy recipes 5/5
My family has loved all the meals I’ve prepared from Mealime. The free version is awesome and the choices are plentiful. I can plan out my weekly shopping and menu. Dinners take about 30 minutes start to finish! I highly recommend this for working families who want home cooked, healthy meals!!
So easy 5/5
By P Dubs 37
This app has made meal planning, shopping and cooking so easy. We are saving money on groceries and not wasting food. Love it!
Suggestion to make it even better 4/5
I love this app.. used it for two recipes so far (meal prepping lunches). But I think it could be better to also include weight management and exercise. Or the ability to sync with apps that already do that, like MyFitnessPal.
Best cooking app ever!!! 5/5
By Black Dusk
I’ve used many other apps but they’re too overwhelming to use, complicated instructions, and generally have to create your own shopping list. This app is perfect for my family of 5!! I’m diabetic and my husband has high cholesterol. Being able to completely customize recipes to fit our needs is a life saver. I’m now able to construct a weekly meal menu which has eliminated discussions of who wants what to eat. Additionally, having ingredients added to an in app shopping list save me so much time. Being able to cook healthy meals from fresh foods makes me feel like a chef. I love this up! I will be upgrading to pro soon!
This is the first review I ever written for an app, and for good reason. My husband and I are about to have our first baby, and I have been trying to find an app that helps with meal planning and grocery shopping. Well this app goes above and beyond. I’m amazed at all the features offered with just the free version, and will definitely consider Pro after a short time (this is just my first week). Delicious recipes and so many wonderful features, like the hands-free cooking mode, shopping list and tailored meals depending on our diet. Thank you so much to the individuals who created this! It is truly an awesome development.
Perfect app for meal plans and grocery list but... 4/5
By Keaton Hoskins
Personally I like to make my own meal plans, but for my wife she wants to be told what to make. I love the ability to choose between 2 and 4 servings, could there be an option for 1 though too?
I really like the grocery aspect, but what if there was a way to suggest other meals based on components of already select items, ie. chicken breast would suggest other meals with that core ingredient, or spring mix would suggest other salads?
The biggest aspect I would love, would be to create custom meals out of core ingredients. This would provide a user repository of meals. The base meals and Pro meals are great, but I would love to have ability to add some of my own creations.
Lastly, KETO! When can we have a Ketogenic diet listed. I know there is Paleo already, but these two have some stark differences. Keto is the more sustainable lifestyle in my opinion. I would be a permanent member to Pro if this was added! I would share this app all over my social media as well if that one piece was added. If there could be meals following the percentages of 75 fat / 20 protein / 5 carb you would have the best meal/food/diet app on the market!!!
All in all this is a great resource! Thank you!
Made my life so much easier that I had time to write this review 5/5
My husband and I have Irish “twins” (babies within a year of each other), we decided to go paleo/keto, and I am gluten intolerant. Planning Meals this week took me about 10 minutes and the shopping trip for the week took me less than an hour while toting both babies. I only wish that there was a lunch/snack option included so that I could truly complete my shopping all at once.
Thought of everything!
LOVE THIS APP 5/5
This has been the best app i have downloaded... possibly EVER! It has made meal times so so much easier for this very busy mom! Also, they have been the best meals i have cooked in years! Easy and delicious! My other favorite part of the app is the shopping list!!! GAME CHANGER for me!
Try it 5/5
Great app. Simplifies my life and the hassle of meal planning and grocery shopping.
Changed my life. I would delete ever other app I have just to keep this one! Thank you!
So helpful 5/5
I got tired of looking up recipes online. This is a super simple way to pick out meals. I’ve tried the veggie burrito bowl (which i added flank steak too, lol) which was AMAZING. The guac was so good. I also made the pork chops with the peach salsa and sautéed garlic green beans. I added a lime basil rice to that dish for a starch and it all tasted perfectly.
I have the recipes set up for te servings so it’s dinner and lunch for the next day.
Grocery store shopping is a breeze when you have an entire list right in front of you. No more forgetting that one ingredient that was crucial to the entire dish.
One thing that kind of annoys is me sometimes the instructions have you start chopping some veg, and then start cooking something l, and then go back to chopping. I like to have everything mise en placed before i get behind the stove.
Saves my life! 5/5
As a busy wife and mom with a Paleo household, meal planning and grocery shopping is daunting. This app has literally saved my life (and sanity!). Offering the Paleo diet, letting me choose our meals for the week, generating the grocery list completely organized- AH MA ZING! Thank you, Mealime for helping this Momma out!!! Bless you!!
I love that you can select recipes and they compile a shopping list. I can’t wait to find even more great recipes.
Personally, breakfast is the meal I have the most trouble planning for, and though I love everything else about the app, having breakfast recipes accessible would make it 100x better! I want breakfast recipes that are fast and easy and simple, and it would be great to have all my grocery store ingredients in one place.
First time leaving a review. 5/5
I love love love this app!!!! I don’t really remember what my family ate before it. I tell everyone about it! I also work with nutritionists and even they approve and use it. Amazing job!! Thank you!
Nice recipes but... 3/5
Need a way to organize meals by day. would like more than dinner options.
Need to feed more than 4 people.
Need a way to mark meals off after they are made and still keep the meal plan active.
Need a way to incorporate price.
Need a way to substitute ingredients.
Won’t consider upgrading to pro unless these issues are considered in the pro version.
In love 5/5
I love this app. I no longer have to think about what to make for dinner I plugged in my diet type and bam meal plan for the week.
What I’ve been searching for. 5/5
I am absolutely stunned by this app! I love it! Everything from the design to the recipes to the shopping list and the cooking directions. I have always struggled finding the perfect shopping list app, and I have always struggled finding the perfect recipe app. With Mealime I have both. It’s so incredibly simple and the cooking mode for during cooking couldn’t be more perfect. I promise this is not a paid review. The fact that you don’t have to pay to use it blows my mind. I’ll definitely be buying a pro subscription only to support the developers so they can bring more amazing things to the app!
Really great 4/5
By California rules!
It’s a really great and helpful app, however once you make the meal plan you can’t take a dish off. Also wish that there weren't “pro” dishes
What I’ve been looking for 5/5
As a person who has little time to make a grocery list with working full time plus this is great! Especially if you feel overwhelmed at the grocery store and end up throwing out a lot
Just a few more details needed 4/5
I love the app. Just a few more things needed:
1. The ability to move a meal not used from previous week to the current week.
2. The ability to print your grocery list.
3. And when adding an item to your list it could populate into the categories listed. It would make it easier if you had ALL the items in the grocery list in the sections of the store they were located.
Again minor details. Overall a great app.
So far so good! 5/5
Haven’t made the recipes yet but the app is super easy to use and made grocery shopping a breeze this week! If the recipes taste good, and actually take 30 minutes I’m going to be super stoked!
The best meal planning app! 5/5
This is the best meal planning app I have found. It saves me so much time! Picking meals just requires touching a picture and the grocery list adds up ingredient totals from different menus. I also love how the ingredient quantities are listed on each step of the cooking mode. Awesome!
Been waiting for this App for years. Thank you! 5/5
REVIEW: Thank you Mealime developers for making a clean, visually beautiful, and super easy to use app for grocery lists, recipes, and meal planning. Life is busy, and I’ve tried to organize my shopping this way by planning in advance to limit waste and follow recipes my husband will enjoy - Mealime makes this possible!
Also, food photography is super expensive and hard to do well. Thank you for investing in the visual component of this app. Photos make the recipes easier to follow, and building meal plans with similar ingredients easier to do quickly with a glance. Also, knowing what the end product is gonna look like makes the whole experience much more enjoyable.
FEEDBACK: It sounds like you’re working on recipe ratings, which is great. My only suggestion is to add an option for multiple ppl for voting. Perhaps allowing the user to add the names of people is cooking for, and then when the recipe is completed, family members can give it a rating. Maybe I’m an outlier who wants honest feedback on my cooking from my husband and kids. But I think it would be a fun way for them to interact with the app/process too, and it would increase the number of people rating recipes.
Again, thank you to the Mealime team. This is a great app.
Can’t say enough good things 5/5
I love this app! I usually dread meal planning, grocery shopping, and actually cooking meals, but this app seriously makes all of that so much easier. When I stick with it we eat 10 times healthier and save a lot of money from going out to eat every time I normally didn’t plan for dinner. I appreciate that you don’t have to pay to use all the basic features and get some delicious recipes, but I will probably pay for the pro version just because it’s such a well made product!
A MUST!!! 5/5
I looove this app. I am a constantly training triathlete and also a college student. Mealime is PERFECT, it makes cooking easy without compromising health, fun, or beauty! I’ve probably told 50+ people about the app, I just LOVE it so much.
