Plan to Eat Sees 33% Increase in Usage During the Last 5 Months

September 17, 2020 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
Plan to Eat, a meal planning app that streamlines the meal planning process with a customizable meal planning calendar and automatically created shopping lists, is excited to announce that their number of active users has increased by 33% during the last 5 months.

"There have only been a few times in the past 10 years that I have seen this kind of interest from new and existing customers!" - Clint Bounds, owner and lead developer at Plan to Eat.

One likely cause for the increase in users is due to people spending more time at home because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Awareness about the benefits of meal planning and cooking has grown during the pandemic, as people are not able to dine out and visit grocery stores as easily or as often as before the virus. Plan to Eat is the solution for people who are looking for an easy, efficient way to plan and prepare meals at home.

Families and individuals alike have recognized the need to meal plan and cook at home, but many need help with this process, from organizing recipes to creating shopping lists. Customer Experience Director, Roni Vayre, had this to say about the Plan to Eat app: "If you have never meal planned before, Plan to Eat takes the stress out of meal planning. And we all need less stress right now!"

Plan to Eat provides an easy solution to help simplify these repetitive tasks. The Plan to Eat mobile and desktop apps offer many benefits for its users, including:
  • Saving money and generating less food waste by sticking to a custom meal plan.
  • Making eating at home more enjoyable with freshly prepared meals.
  • Spending less time meal planning and creating shopping lists.
  • Helping to get the entire family involved in meal planning and preparation, as well as eating more meals together.
  • Reducing stress and anxiety around planning meals and grocery shopping.
  • Making healthier food choices more accessible to maintain a healthy weight.

  • The app also gives users the ability to:
  • Tap the share icon in any mobile web browser to import recipes from the web, or enter family recipes manually.
  • Connect with other Plan to Eat subscribers to share and save recipes, or share a recipe by text or email.
  • Add recipes, ingredients or notes to the meal planning calendar. Adjust servings, reschedule meals, plan leftovers, and track frozen meals.
  • Select a date range for the shopping list and all the ingredients needed for the meals planned on those dates will automatically populate. Manually add shopping list items and organize your list with custom stores and categories.
  • Automatically synchronize the recipes, meal plan, and shopping list across all devices.

  • With the number of users increasing, Plan to Eat has taken their customers' feedback about their meal planning app to make improvements. One of the newest updates in the app is the grocery delivery feature which helps users easily send their Plan to Eat shopping lists to grocery delivery services.

    Other updates since the increase in new signups include:
  • An improved menus feature for easier planning of previous meal plans.
  • The ability to share the shopping list with friends and family
  • More continuity between the mobile and desktop apps
  • Recipe filters to help find the perfect recipe

  • According to Plan to Eat owner and lead developer, Clint Bounds, "This has been a tough year for many of us and we've been working hard to push updates that fit our customers' current needs, such as Grocery Delivery and more collaboration features."
