If you want to lose weight get this app 5/5
This app is freaking awesome. I’ve never been able to stick to eating healthy until now. It makes it so easy and the recipes are amazing. I never new paleo could taste this good.
So easy and fun! 5/5
By Jabs vans
I absolutely love this app! It's so easy and fun to use. It makes shopping for the week a breeze and cuts out a ton of meal planning time. The recipes are also super simple and delicious! Highly recommend!!
Amazing App!! 5/5
This app is awesome! I am not a cook by any means and every night was a last minute rush to figure out what to eat and we usually ended up eating out. I have had to go dairy free recently and I needed ideas for quick, easy meals that taste good and were dairy free. This app has been very helpful! Highly recommend!!
GREATEST APP OF ALL TIME 5/5
Tired of swiping through Pinterest looking for the perfect meal that consists of all ingredients you’d actually enjoy eating? Well Mealime is your one stop app. It has the option to pick your food preferences, what type of dietary lifestyle you have, FREAKIN INCLUDES THE OPTION TO ADD THE INGREDIENTS TO YOUR GROCERY LIST, and to order your groceries through instacart. I mean it literally doesn’t get better than this app. I’m forever grateful to the creators of Mealime, they have changed my world for the better.
Simply Awesome! 5/5
Just try it. Download it now and try it. You can select the diet restrictions you want and you can pick recipes that work for you. A lot of them are already in MyFitnessPal so you can keep track of your nutrition.
Support staff is incredibly personal and friendly. I sent an email just saying thanks and letting them know I appreciate the app and got a response within a day. They seem to truly care about their users.
Currently a paying subscriber and I plan to continue this subscription for a long time! Thanks for making weeknight dinners easy!
Changed my life 5/5
So I’m always skeptic of apps. But this one is seriously the best download I’ve ever done. I’ve been trying to change my eating habits and I knew cooking was going to be the only way I could do that. The problems are: 1) my husband is very picky. 2) I’m not a great cook. But this app has helped both of those issues! The recipes are easy, simple, yet delicious. They never take more then 30 minutes. And can I just RAVE about the grocery list portion!?! This has made it all 10x easier. I never forget an ingredient at the store with this app.
So to say the least, I love this app.
Absolutely love it! 5/5
By far the best food app I ever come across. It is so thorough and goes into depth with the foods, from counting macros for you to making a shopping list for you. Definitely a must have if it is overwhelming for you to plan your meals and your macros yourself. I just wish there was a whole lot more meals to choose from, but there is still plenty! This app needs to grow more so we can get more meal choices in this baby! Please don’t ever leave me, Mealime!!
A big help! 5/5
By Cc06 Jackson
I’ve failed at my past attempts at being an efficient meal planner. I’d plan then buy different things at the store and still often ended up having “what’s for dinner” moments. This app is awesome! Tasty, fast and practical meals, tailored to your preferences. A ready to go shopping list gets prepared for your whole week, that you can check off as you shop or based upon what you have and easy step by step instructions. I’m in the free version now but will plan to upgrade.
Quite possibly the best app. I’m absolutely addicted to the app. Easy to use, recipes are amazing, cooking instruction is very easy to follow. My most favorite feature is the money I save from not over purchase of produce. Mealime gives you exact measurements, quantity, and ideas for substitutions when grocery story may not carry the item. Thank you Mealime for providing amazing recipes.
Soooo helpful 5/5
I suffer from anxiety and depression and so cooking for a family of 6 is sometimes really a major struggle. I can’t tell you how much I love this but I will try. This app lets you pic from visuals and easy to read instructions to put a meal plan together and based on the number of people u tell it you are feeding, it generates a grocery list specific to the weight or amount of what items u need from the store to cook all the selected meals and it organizes that list to make it easy when ur shopping 🤯😫👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 OKRRR! This thing just took all my brains issues and sorted them all out🙌🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 I am obsessed! I will recommend this to anybody like me who is looking for the do it all make my life easy meal plan/cooking/grocery app! You can even select to have the list of items delivered if you are in the right area🥳🥳🥳🥳 I want to kiss the person who thought of and developed this💗 thank you for making my life easier and helping me master mom and wife duties at home💕
Best app ever 5/5
By the cooking nurse
Was introduced to this app by coworker. We have been cooking up easy health meals ever since and sending each other pictures of the results. Our pictures look like the photos in the app. Grocery shopping and meal prep have become fun. It’s amazing. The grocery shopping part is my favorite.
MUST HAVE APP 5/5
This app is a game changer!! Delicious and easy recipes
Love it! 4/5
Changed the way I plan my meals for the week - using the 4 person servings, I now have dinner and lunch for my partner and I. Great app. Love that I have a standard way to shop and plan for the week and I can rely on the calorie counts. Only thing I would change is having more recipes more often. :)
Need better measurements than "small" and "large" 4/5
By Biff Webster, Jr.
Great app! Except for one thing.
Since words like "small" and "large" are relative, it'd be useful to have weights for produce, e.g., 200g sweet potatoes. It's actually a major irritation and possibly the one thing preventing me from beginning a paid member.
These people have nailed it!!! 5/5
Seriously best thing that has happened to our family!!!! I love that it will add everything into my instacart app, (wish there it would to my normal Kroger app but still amazing) I love that for the free program I am do everything I need to do my husband actually likes to cook I actually like to cook and order things.. I always screen shot recipes, then switch back and forth to add to my groceries, then have to scroll through all my screen shots to see how to cook this has eliminated all of that!! And I can send the instructions to my husbands phone if he is cooking!! I seriously can not say enough great things about this app!!!!
Quick mealplan 4/5
By unimpressed costumer
Great app. Actually was able to make a meal plan for this week in under 10 minutes (for reference this usually takes up to 2 hours) but it seems there are only dinner options so it would be nice to see breakfast and lunch options too. Other wise I’ll just use this with the tasty app by buzzfeed
This is the best meal planning app ever! 5/5
By Reuben Anderson
First I love how you don’t have to sign in. 2. I love how it asks you for specifics about your preferences in Food and then it only shows you the meals that have those preferences. 3. The shopping list allows you to eliminate quickly the items that you already have. To summarize it’s quick and easy to get this done each week!
Love this app! 5/5
A perfect way to update your “go to” weeknight meals! All the recipes have been delicious!
Great app 5/5
By Darius b123
We had gotten into a food rut and needed to change up our dinners. In my search for recipe apps I found this one. I tried the standard app for a few weeks and decided to upgrade to the pro version. What I like most about the app is the variety of recipes and built-in grocery list. The recipes are simple and easy to follow which is great when I have my kids (14/12/9) helping me make dinner. The recipes are also easily adjustable to fit my families needs/wants though I haven’t done that very often. The grocery list feature has been AWESOME for me. My list for our weekly dinners is completed for me and I can add any extras that I need. I definitely recommend this app
Great idea but needs work 2/5
Needs to be user friendly.. like an option to print out the grocery list and such. Pluck you can’t undo the check marks
Great app only 2 things 4/5
Great app only two things I should be able to pick meals from other categories for the same week and I should be able to preplan my next week and still have the current week available to use
Excellent app 5/5
I love the recipes! Everything we’ve tried has been delicious and easy to prepare. This has helped us change our eating to healthier meals and less eating out. It’s worth it to pay for the premium version, at only $4.99/month you get so much! Great value!
Awesome. Easy to use and practical! 5/5
Finally a meal planning app that’s simple yet customizable and loaded with a variety of straightforward recipes! My family has been using this for our dinners for two weeks now, and we would make every one of the recipes again. I also love that the generated shopping list can integrate with Instacart. This app is so intuitive and exactly what I’ve been looking for for years!
None better 5/5
Mealime is the best menu planning app out there. I’ve cheated on Mealime and tried other apps but always come back.
Why? Well, some apps show a calendar of days and when you are cooking the meals, however, they don’t supply the wonderful recipes Mealime provides. You have to provide your own. Some menu planners provide recipes and shopping lists but don’t give the allergy, dislikes options. Other planners mimic Mealime and do a horrible job of proofing their recipes and eww, you can tell the difference. Mealime portions are always generous. The meals are delicious and since we have allergies and have dislikes, we can always get a menu of meals we can eat. Thank you, Mealime!
Delicious Recipes, easy to use 5/5
I have loved this app. Right now I am using the free portion, but contemplating paying the yearly rate because everything is so good. This app makes you a grocery list right on your phone. In addition, the recipes are easy and take no more than 45 mins to make start to finish!
SO CONVENIENT 4/5
as college student, finding easy and cheap, HEALTHY meals is hard but this app makes shopping and cooking so easy! There are tons of good recipes to choose from for all diet types!! only wish it would recommend dished with the same ingredients to save money :/ but overall so great!!
Makes meals so easy!!! 5/5
From the meals to the grocery list to the cooking, everything is so nicely done and makes cooking a relaxing activity.
This makes cooking soooo much easier!! Everything is set up so well. From picking what type of diet you are on, if any, to being able to eliminate foods you don’t like, this app has it all! Love it!
By Yum food
Let me just say that I am loving this app. I have a few suggestions:
1) Include some sort of customer ratings for each recipe. Something as simple as how many people have rated the recipe and how many stars it averages would be amazing!
2) Allow users to rearrange the meals on their weekly meal plan. I would love being able to put them rearrange them into the order I plan to consume them.
3) Add a new category of food to the app: freezer meals! Or just add some alternative instructions on how to make some existing meals into freezer meals. I would love to be able to add a couple of freezer meals on slower weeks to supplement the weeks when I am busy.
4) Allow pro users to select different serving numbers (2,4,6) for individual recipes as they are added to the meal plan. I don’t mind eating the same lunch every day for a week, but I like to rotate through different dinners.
Thanks for the great app!
Needs more variety 3/5
Great idea! Needs more variety and creativity. Only used it for about a week or 3.
I started a little aggressively out of curiosity. We loved it. Plenty of food for dinner and lunch! I even did the add to grocery list option and has amazon fresh deliver. I like that I am able to manipulate list and remove what I have or prefer to substitute. I definitely used some ingredients in more than 1 recipe so not a waste. The only thing I did 6 meals so produce didn’t all last. Best is to do maybe 3 meals at a time. I will look into getting my own groceries as well as a little cheaper alternative but the ease of the app and understanding the recipes was a 5 star for me. We are eating much healthier now and saving money. Delicious and great variety of meals!
This app is amazing, I found it while playing some random game and I’ve lost 10 Ib from eating better. The meals are delicious and it is so easy to use!
By Daniel Hightower
I never leave reviews, but I can’t begin to express how much of a life changer this app is for myself and my wife. As a young, married, busy couple it can be hard to find time to eat well and eat at home. This app saves the day, everyday.
This has changed our diets completely! 5/5
I just download Mealime at the suggestion of a friend a few days ago. I use Kroger Clicklist for groceries, and this made finding healthy meals for the week so easy! I just made my plan and put the grocery list in the Kroger app. My husband and I have already made a few meals and they’ve been healthy & delicious! We were stuck in a rut and this helped get us out! :)
Simple, delicious and quick 5/5
This app thinks for me... pick number of meals, pick meals and not only do you have a complete grocery list for all meals in one place, the meals are all healthy, easy to follow and so good. I literally haven’t made a bad meal yet... And I can’t cook ;)
You can even get your ingredients delivered in most areas (unfortunately not mine but still love the idea).
I work a lot and anything that can help me eat better with less effort is highly rated in my book.
Got me cooking 5/5
I used to eat out a LOT while I was moving in. I felt too busy to think about meal planning and what the heck ingredients to buy and then (being an inexperienced cook) how to even make some of this stuff I saw on the internet. This app makes it so easy I just have no excuses anymore. A quick trip to the grocery store and I can pick up stuff for multiple meals without expending one brain cell. The directions are also very easy to follow. I LOVE this app, thank you for making my life a little healthier and more “adult!” Yay.
Better Instructions 4/5
By Rooster Springs
Enjoyed the app, very easy to navigate. It needs some work on the step by step instructions There were a few recipes I had to improvise on. Other than that great app! Thanks
Wait for Shipt integration. 1/5
By Abp is crud
The app seems like it was done in isolation of the final mile problem set. The integration between chosen meals and how to leverage other grocery delivery apps in a non-frustrating manner is not available as of Mar 2019.
The two march 2019 options are Amazon and instacart. Both options are woefully lacking.
Advise waiting a few months more to allow the developer more time to flawlessly integrate with non-Mealime apps to provide that full end to end the users are looking for.
Loved this App 5/5
By Mouse House Gang
Simply the best cooking app I have ever used.
Every meal has been a favorite. With easy instructions, you can make some wonderful meals.
Great app, but more measurements needed 5/5
I LOVE this app! I seriously am in love with every recipe I have tried. I like how I can change the preference so, as we enter lent season, I can eliminate meat and dairy easily and find healthy and creative options.
The recipes are great and easy to follow. My one complaint in every one is MEASUREMENTS!!! Sure, salt and pepper maybe don’t need measurements. But when you add other seasoning like cinnamon or cumin maybe better guidelines as how much. The recipe I used tonight was honey and vinegar with no guidelines to amounts! How much do I need to get enough coverage or the right flavor profile?
If you fix this, it will be 5 stars...oh and I don’t know how but be able to match with other apps. I typically use Vons in my area. But this isn’t a deal breaker. It is super easy to use the app to show anyway.
UPDATE: I am totally blind! I didn’t realize that the measurement amounts are imbedded under each step where appropriate. I saw it today when I made another recipe. This just shot up to 5 stars. We are in lent season now and I just received all my groceries for the next week. So excited for a whole new menu!
Love this app, but would love it more... 4/5
I’d love to be able to select my sides to go with the main dish. I see a lot of recipes that I don’t select because I don’t like the side dish. Selecting a side and entree and side dish and Mealime creating my grocery list would take this app to another level!
Could be ALOT better 1/5
There is no way to save the meal plans you create. I like to reuse my leftovers to make new meals or batch cook so this is not good I don’t want to reinvent every week. Also now you have to be a PRO member to get many of the good recipes🙄 The pro price is outrageous!
Best meal prep app 5/5
I am no cook in the kitchen that for sure but ever since I downloaded this app. I am always in the kitchen. The recipes are so delicious, easy and quick. I love how it lists all the ingredients and the instructions are so user friendly. Best app!!! Thank you!
All around great app! 5/5
I love cooking but was looking for a recipe collection that was simple, didn’t have a lot of exotic ingredients, and had a serving size of 2/3 not 5/6 like most recipes I have. This app also takes into consideration what diet restrictions you have and what your preferences are. What really sold me was the shopping list. It breaks down what you need and how much. It also listed good substitutes if you don’t like something or it’s not on sale!
I only use the free version, not the pro, but there are tons of great recipes here! Planning my meals with this app has enable me to drop 40lbs and keep it off.
So helpful! 5/5
This prep app has only gotten better. It was the perfect way to switch it up and liven up my same old dinners.
Great idea, good app, not enough content 2/5
I want to love this app and give them money. The idea is great, and it’s well implemented. But they need more recipes. A lot more. And they need to keep adding them. It seems the “recently created” list hasn’t changed in months. If the content gave the functionality the support it deserved, this would be a 5-star app that I would use every day.
Great App 5/5
By Hodge Boys
Makes family meal planning and shopping a breeze.
Missing a few key features even with Pro 3/5
Meal lime is great and I appreciate all the effort that went into building the product but it could use a few improvements.
1. It’s difficult to know if you’re choosing enough meals to cover the whole week. This might be helped with some type of calendar function or the ability to assign meals to days.
2. I had a hard time finding “easy” recipes. The ability to search by cooking time or recipe difficulty would be appreciated.
3. There were a couple of recipes I wanted to eat multiple nights in a week but there’s no easy way to increase or decrease serving counts without starting over from scratch.
4. I don’t see the value of “sharing on social” but I would find value in the ability to create a “shared household” where multiple different users could contribute to a shared meal plan.
Overall, meal lime is fine but not perfect.
By Working Mom Likes to Cook
I love the flavors & variety. The automatic grocery list is a time saver. It makes meal planning easy. Directions are clear & simple to follow.
