Weekly Meal Plans

Weekly Meal Planning Apps

What a Crock Meals to Go, a meal delivery service, sends pre-packaged meals that you can simply dump in your slow cooker to cook while you’re taking care of the kids, running errands, or getting ready for a busy weeknight!

Use a company like Plate Joy to create an easy, done-for-you weekly meal plan. You’ll get all the ingredients delivered to your door so you can quickly prepare each day’s meals.

Shipt, a shopping app, allows you to add shop online through your favorite local grocery store and choose meals, which will then be delivered to your door.

I also love MyFreezEasy’s app to create one-off dinners or print weekly meal plans. There are individual meal plans to choose from with up to 20 recipes in each meal plan. MyFreezEasy’s meal plans include meal prep instructions, a shopping list, and a full recipe based on your cooking method or preferred menu.

MyFreezEasy is my favorite meal planning app.
