Best app ever! 5/5
My very first app review 😊. I enjoy this app so much! The recipes use all fresh ingredients, every meal I have tried has been delicious, the recipe instructions are easy to follow, thorough and conveniently arranged so you don’t have to keep looking up at the ingredient list to see amounts to use. I was considering one of those meal service delivery boxes but they seem expensive and you still have to chop and prepare the ingredients, with this app it basically does all the same things as the meal delivery boxes except sending you the ingredients. I use Walmarts free grocery pickup app and this mealtime app and it saves me a tremendous amount of time and money. Love it!
Makes easy meal planning...well...easy. 4/5
I have been using the app for about a month and haven’t had a bad recipe. Meal planning and grocery list in one step is my favorite feature. Also putting the measured ingredients at each step is awesome. I hope over time the recipe database will be larger and more varied. I upgraded to pro and that gave me more recipes, so was worth the $.
I love this app!
Love this app! 5/5
This might be the first review I’ve done for an app, that’s how much I love it! Love the ease of navigation, grocery list feature, and the uncomplicated delicious recipes. This has really motivated me to cook at home and has made it easy.
I’ve tried several meal planning apps, this is the only free one and also the best one, it’s easy to use and has great recipes! Only wish they added more vegan and vegetarian recipes.
Great, but could be brilliant with 1 simple thing 4/5
This app is wonderful for people new to cooking or those looking to expand into different styles or cooking. Makes everything very easy from ingredients, instructions, etc.
However, and I understand that this is an incredibly 1st-world suggestion/complaint, this could be magnificent if there was a partnership with Prime Now. That way, you could pick your meals and the ingredients would populate into your shopping cart. Would make this app 10x more convenient so you don’t have to go hunting for 100 different ingredients at the grocery store.
This app is awesome 5/5
Just need a little more snacking tip/ recipes, besides that everything is amazing💯
Love the app 5/5
Super idea, extremely helpful especially being able to create meals according to specific health needs....great recipes, fabulous mixture of different cuisines, very impressed...
So helpful and delicious! 5/5
This app has taught me to cook more and more delicious! It has everything I need and more. Love the grocery list option it’s amazing!
Life saver and money saver 5/5
I love this app so much. My grocery lists are more manageable now and I swear it pays for itself in groceries. I hope more recipes will be added. Every meal I have made in the last three weeks has been a hit with my kids. I do have to adjust for the proportions at times. Sometimes certain ingredients seem little heavy in a recipe. That’s easy to eyeball though. I have been feeding these people for a while so I kind of know what is about right for us. I also attribute it to always having my app set on six servings....and I think that is six full grown adults for the app. I gave a one month subscription a test fun but I’m pretty sure I’m gonna go for the year.
This app has been a life saver!! 5/5
The meal choices are yummy, easy and fun!! Even my two year likes the food.
Great app! 5/5
Love this site so easy to use and very helpful!
Easiest Meal Prep Ever 5/5
This has to be the best meal prep app/software ever. Incredibly easy to use. Recipes, grocery list, and cook instructions all in one place. Huge time and money saver.
Life Saver!!!! 5/5
This app has helped me so much to be better organized with my life. It is so simple to use that a child could do it. I’ve never regretted taking the time to use the app. It truly has been such a blessing to me.
Trying this app was one of my better decisions 5/5
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!).
Beginner cool 5/5
I always cook the same things. Turkey burgers or a simple chicken/rice dish. I decided to branch out and get some recipe apps and I’ve liked everything I’ve tried so far on this app. Instructions are easy to read, has a shopping list and allows to go check them off as you go/or if you already have in cabinet. All in all, good app.
Meal planning made easy 5/5
Since starting to use Mealime my husband and I have saved money and reduced food waste. Love it!
Five Stars 5/5
I’m not much of a cook but I love this app! It makes cooking and meal planning so easy!!!
Nothing needs said the App speaks for itself 5/5
By Cooking is Tedious
It changed my life, and my family. That is all, thank you.
Best meal plan app ever!!! 5/5
Love that you can use a service to deliver the exact ingredients right to your door!!! Also the recipes taste absolutely sensational and very easy to prepare!!!
Pretty cool! Except... 3/5
Great recipes and lots of options. It would be nice if you could add partial servings to the nutrition info integration into the iPhone health app. And be able to customize any recipe selected for number of servings, food preferences, etc rather than having to change your entire profile in settings. For the $$ being charged, there are a lot of things that can improve.
Love this app 5/5
My wife asked me to start helping with dinner. I downloaded this app and now we can all plan and eat better. I am a hero.
Meals made simple 5/5
Just went to to grocery. Used the shopping list. I have spices, oils, vinegars at home so I pre-checked these off. I selected low carb for two. The pictures are beautiful. I’m a fair cook so nothing looks tough to do. I modified the list so the dishes will not be exactly the same. I bought the family meat pack. So yes, it had chicken thighs, chicken thin cut breast fillets instead of chicken breast whole, thin cut steak instead of ribeye, ground turkey instead of ground beef, cubed pork instead of pork chops. 4-5 lbs of meat for $20. It will serve. Looking forward to using this app. Bought a ton of fresh veggies. 😃
So easy 5/5
I love this app. The recipes are great and the shopping list is super easy to use. Very satisfied
Love it 5/5
I’ve only done meal plan for a week but I’m loving the step by step simple instructions. It does traje you a little over the 30 minutes just because you’re trying to follow the recipe but the next time I bet it’ll be faster.
The best app on the planet 5/5
This is a game changer for me! I made every excuse why I couldn’t meal plan until I found this app. Now I’m convinced everyone needs it!!! I felt like a real chef last night and my family loved what I cooked them! Recipes are so simple and inexpensive. The grocery list feature is perfect! Every aspect of it gets thumbs up!! How can it be free?!?!? It’s almost too good to be true!
Better instacart integration needed 4/5
Love this app and the fact that it integrates with Instacart for grocery delivery is awesome... but. It dumps you into the web experience versus the native app which is weird. Plus it allows you to pick a recipe that calls for say 2 avacados but then doesn’t apply correct quantities to your shop list :/ - it makes you define the quantities.
Love it! 5/5
Just excellent. No other words needed
Love it!! 5/5
My new favorite app! Meal planning isn’t such a chore like it used to be!! I get bored making the same thing all the time and Mealime makes it easy to try new recipes!!
Best meal planning app available 5/5
By Myself as I
I haven’t tried many meal planning apps. But Mealime puts everything you need in one convenient and easy to use app. We are a family who loves to cook 5-7 meals a week and it has drastically improved our meal selection for suppers. It favors those who plan at least a week at a time.
Super simple recipes with portion control and real actual ingredients I can find at my local grocery store (I love in a town of 780 people). I even recommended this app to my newly wed daughter!
This looks like a great app but you have to pay for Nutritional values. What’s the point. I like to see them so I can keep track
Love at first sight..invested in yr subscription! 4/5
I love the features of this app. The only reason I didn’t rate 5 stars, is because I’d like to plan meals for more than one type of “diet” AND I don’t see the option for breakfast, lunch, dinner planning. I have to eat differently than the rest of my family due to food sensitivities. I hope you can add more options soon. I normally would only buy a monthly subscription for an app but I was amazed right off the bat with this one!
Wow if your looking for healthy recipes this is it 5/5
So it’s been my second day using this app. One you pick your meals for the week I picked 7. Two it gives you a grocery list and portions to buy. Three I got a whole weeks worth of food for 100-150(I had to buy some utensil I didn’t have). You save so much because your not blindly buying
Food. This food has a purpose and will all be eaten. LASTLY. MY GOD THESE RECIPES ARE DELICIOUS!!!!!! I have never enjoyed healthy food like this! I might even buy the pro version it’s that worth it!!
Love it! 5/5
Makes my week so much easier and I love that you can eat as fancy or as plain as you’d like
Fantastic app 5/5
I truly love this app. I put it on my husbands phone also so we can both use it to cook and I know I have exactly what’s needed for dinner. The new grocery delivery integration is pretty great too. My only complaint is the lack of low calorie options. If you edit your preferences to under 500 calories, there is only something like 8 options.
Money and time saver! 5/5
Money and time saver!
Also accommodating to different diets.
Life changing 5/5
I used to have so much food waste because I am garbage at meal planning. I used the app for a year for free, and then upgraded to their premium plan. I also love how they are connected with instacart. It makes everything so easy! I talk about how much I love it to everyone I know I feel like they should pay me for advertising :D i honestly don’t know what I would do without it!
Love this! 5/5
So easy, great simple recipes, no weird ingredients, I love that I can exclude things I don’t like, and I love the convenient shopping list with grocery delivery! Love love!
Best thing ever! 5/5
Literally makes my life so much easier! Any chance I get to, I tell people about this app because it saves me so much money at the store, it helps me cut down majorly on food waste, and it makes it so that my husband and I can easily eat home cooked, healthy meals. Every recipe we’ve used is great and I recommend getting the pro version so you have access to all of the recipes. I started out with the free one, and I was so impressed that I decided to upgrade, and I’m happy I did. Now I can see nutrition facts, past meal plans I’ve done, etc. I love that you can search by ingredient and many other things, and that I can set it to pescatarian options. Get this— you won’t be disappointed!
Life Changing App 5/5
We’ve used this app 4 days a week for over two years. It has expanded our taste and culinary abilities with easy, healthy recipes. Former “meat and potatoes”meal makers, we’ve found some of the vegetarian options our favorite. It really has been life changing.
Great recipes, awesome grocery list, but cook smart 5/5
I love how the app makes everything so simple and easy.
It literally prepares a grocery shopping list for you and gives detailed directions for making each dish.
My only qualm is that sometimes the time frame for cooking the meals are extremely underestimated. Overall the meals don’t take long to make but the prep for them does. I think on average I spend an hour each cooking each recipe which is horrible but it’s not what the app advertises.
I would advise others to just ignore certain steps in the recipe so it doesn’t take as long. No need to make croutons from scratch!
Exclude foods you don't like, sure, but the list is woefully incomplete. So much so that three quarters of the first batch of recipes were things I would not even consider. If you are going to have the feature, then have it. Don't waste my time by pretending.
Great for people with allergies!!! 5/5
I love, love, love this app! I have a bunch of food allergies- and to weird things- bananas, peas, tuna, chickpeas, lentils, kiwi, egg plant- the list goes on and on.
This app is great for me for two reasons- I can either filter out the recipes that have foods I can’t eat (and it’s fully customizable! so it accounts for all of my “weird” allergies, or I can pick pretty much any recipe and they give substitutions for almost every ingredient!
For example, I can either filter out all of the recipes that call for chickpeas, or I can use a suggested substitute (usually some type of beans, which I can eat).
I have never been able to have this varied of diet and meal types before- my husband and I love Indian food/flavors, but can’t usually have it because of my allergies and both of us are stuck missing it, now I can make whatever we want at home and it’s safe for me, healthier, and makes my husband happy. Because the whole app and recipes are so user friendly, I am not the only “chef” in the house. My husband and I have started cooking together and have a lovely time, and if I am not able to be around, he has no problem following most of the recipes, which is amazing because he only really started cooking with me when we got this app.
Thank you so much for saving us lots of money, time, hassle, food waste while helping me enjoy a wide variety of foods I otherwise couldn’t have.
Everyone needs this app 5/5
I’m the type of person who needs to follow a recipe so this app is perfect for me. I love how the instructions are laid out, telling you step by step what to do with ingredients. The automatic shopping list is amazing and makes grocery shopping organized and easy. And the recipes are delicious! My husband and I are both grateful for this app and eat healthier because of it.
This app does what every meal planning app wants to. Love it!
We’re really loving this app. It’s easy to use and the recipes are delicious. The only thing I’d like to see is something to plan for next week’s meals and grocery list while keeping the current weeks recipes and instructions in another location.
Trapped in a loop here — very frustrating 2/5
Originally, I downloaded this on my phone and liked what I saw... Chose some recipes. Love the shopping list etc. Then went on vacation and forgot about it.
No I’m back. Need to eat healthy, right? But I actually want to use the app on my iPad as it’s just easier. So I do; choose some (different) recipes, did the shopping list. NOW I want to go shopping BUT I want the shopping list on my phone.
But wait, the old recipes from two weeks ago are still on my phone and I can’t delete them. Can’t sync the two instances of the app. Making me a little crazy and frustrated...
Life changing 4/5
This app has changed my family’s lifestyle! It’s amazing! I would LOVE for iPhone users to be able to copy the grocery list to the Walmart pickup like android users. That’s my only complaint.
