You guys! Today is the day. We’re launching something you have been asking for, for YEARS: An exclusive membership area on our website and a weekly meal plan service! Instead of writing it out, I wanted to tell you all about it, and everything that inspired it, so turn on your volume or pop in your headphones and let’s chat!
This is for YOU!
Hopefully you made it through the whole video, because I explain every last detail in there and give you a peek inside. We’re super stoked about having a private membership area on our website and we can’t wait to give you special content in there. We already have added tons of quick-fix breakfast ideas in your meal plans that aren’t found anywhere else on our website! AND all members will get a different members-only discount or deal each month to our shop. (If you’re one of our newsletter subscribers, keep reading- you get a discount!)
If you’re loving all of this and wanting to sign up, I’ll sweeten the pot a bit! Anyone who joins in the first 48 hours- so now through Tuesday April 18 at midnight will automatically be entered to win a $100 gift card to Amazon- woot! The odds should be pretty good so jump on it!
An important note: We are offering a special discounted price on our meal plans to newsletter subscribers. If you aren’t a subscriber already, simply CLICK HERE. After you sign up, you’ll see the sale price offer for the meal plan service. If you’re already a newsletter subscriber, check your inbox! Emails will start going out to you first thing on Monday morning so check it to get your email (including junk and promotions folders) and if you need help after tomorrow, feel free to email [email protected] and our team will get you taken care of!
Okay, what are you waiting for?? Click below to check out our membership area and weekly Meal Plan Service! We can’t wait to have you join us!
Is the weekly meal plan still available? The “click here” link doesn’t work for me. I got the $9.99 fit and fun one, but was hoping for a weekly subscription service!
We’re not currently enrolling new members, but if you get our Dinner, Simplified plan, you’ll get full access to 2 years of weekly meal plan archives! ????????
My name is Kathleen Stoops and I have enjoyed your site very much. The only problem is that I am single and just cook for myself. Therefore I would like to cancel my membership since it is geared toward a family gathering for a meal. Thank you. Please send me an email to let me know that you received this message.
Hey Kathleen, no problem! We’d actually like to do a plan for singles and empty nesters, so keep your eye out for that one! I’ll have my meal plan manager send you a message!
Thank you website for always sharing your ideas and new meals!
Looking to see how many people the meal plan is set for but can’t seem to find anything! We have 7 kids so wondering if I will be adjusting measurements a ton? Thanks for the help!
Hey Kellye! It’s not set for a specific number of people. It’s all recipes from our website, so if you’re used to cooking our recipes that will give you an idea. Generally ours recipes tend to be geared toward serving 6-8, but it varies. Hope that helps!
I just want to say that I downloaded my first week, and this is so perfect!! This will be the 4th meal planning service I’ve tried. I LOVE that you are using seasonal ingredients, plans for leftover ingredients, alternative recommendations (such as the oven baked fries link on the french fries recipe). My one suggestion is to make the pages with the grocery list much, much smaller. I don’t mind teeny tiny font for a grocery list. But I would feel a little odd shuffling through 4 pages at the store. In fact, I agree with Ashley’s comment above that the whole pdf is a little long; if you are able to format each day’s recipes on one page, that would be fantastic. Maybe squeeze the two at-a-glance pages on one page to hang on the fridge.
One other note: as a subscriber, I really don’t mind repeated meals every so often. I’d rather repeat favorite recipes than have to cook strange concoctions just so it is always something “new”.
But all-in-all, good job and thank you!
Thanks for the feedback Leigh, so happy you’re loving it! We’ve actually implemented these changes already and you’ll see them rolling out in the next couple of weeks. Glad to know you don’t mind repeats, either! I just wish everyone had the same favorites, haha!
Hi, I bought the meal plan and can’t wait to use it. But i was SHOCKED at how many pages (30!) per week it would be to print out. If there is any way to shorten this down I would appreciate it. I don’t need any pictures and I love the weekly overview and grocery list, but the format is toooo long. If I had realized I’m not sure I would have bought it. Even on my phone to have to scroll though that many pages to find something is hard. Please take some time to look though and see if spaces/ formatting can be changed so it’s more like 5 pages?
Check out Emeals – for an idea? But Thank you for putting this together, I just can’t recommend it to friends yet. LOVE YOU GUYS
Update! OBB contacted me and let me know they appreciated my feedback and going forward they have changed the format of the meal plans. They will be much smaller and manageable. I am so happy and excited. NOW i can recommend!
And I agree with below, I don’t need pictures, I would rather print with less paper. 2 on a page would be awesome. Excited to see what the new ones look like. Thank you so much for making my life easier.
How long will the code be good for the discounted price?
There’s no code, you do get a discounted rate if you sign up for our newsletter though!
in the weekly meal plan do you also give side dish ideas? I am great with the main dish it is the side dish that really completes the meal that I struggle with.
We try to offer side dish suggestions for all the meals!
Is there an option to prepay, and avoid a recurring charge?
Since it’s a subscription service, all charges are reoccurring, but you can cancel your monthly subscription at any time.
I just purchased this and I’m super excited! Maybe I’m not tech savvy enough, but is there a button on your page that will let me log in so I can download the meal plans? Whenever I click on the link in the email it wants me to create a new password. Thanks!
It’s in the upper left hand corner of the blog. You’ll see “MEMBERSHIP LOG-IN”. You can also send an email to [email protected]. 🙂
this sounds great! will there be vegetarian options for the meals?
We occasionally have vegetarian meals, but there is not a guaranteed number of meatless dinners.
Thank you! This is amazing! I already used the plan to make dinner and a treat tonight and a quick breakfast for back to school tomorrow!
Oh my gosh, awesome!!
I signed up and signed in on my phone. Is there a link that I can sign in on my computer?
There is a log-in on the front page of our website- look in the upper left hand corner 🙂
What if you sign up for the whole year and it doesn’t end up being what I need/want? Am I just out the $45? That is definitely the best deal and I love your recipes but, I’ve just never done anything like this so I don’t know how much I’ll use it until I try it!
If you ever have any issues, just email [email protected] and we’ll take care of you 🙂
Are the meal plans healthy? Also, if I try it for a month, and don’t think it will work for me, can I cancel and how?
The meals are all recipes from our site, and occasionally new and exclusive ones. So it’s a mix of different styles of cooking. If you follow our site you know we lean toward fresh, whole foods, but we also aren’t afraid of butter 😉 You can definitely cancel at any time! There will be a cancellation link in there, or you can always email [email protected] if you need any help.
wow so exciting!! I’m definitely interested and am curious how much you’ll be charging
I totally just signed up with the awesome full year price!! Gotta love the discount. Almost 4 years ago I had to drastically change my eating habits due to an auto immune disease(Hashimotos) I found out I have. I have followed your site for 7 years now and I’m a huge fan. I pretty much only make family recipes or your recipes. Even though I can’t always eat exactly what is in your recipes, I have usually been able to adapt them to fit my needs…sometimes. (My biggest offenders I can’t eat are eggs and gluten) Taking much of the effort and planning away from this busy, tired mommy of 4 is such a blessing. Thank you and I look forward to using this service and making it work for my family. I have definitely been in a huge “whats for dinner” rut and I think this might help us out of it.
Has the newsletter gone out yet? I was looking for the discounted price but don’t have it in my in box yet.
Yes! I believe it sends out in batches though, so it might still be on its way. If you don’t see it by mid-day, feel free to email [email protected] to check!
Best news EVER!
How exciting! I am a big fan of following you both and this blog. Just a quick question, is the monthly subscription a one time purchase to try out the website or is it a recurring automatic payment? Thank you!!
It looks like they have both options, but by the year is cheaper
