Here are answers to all the most frequently asked questions about using Real Plans together with Ditch the Carbs.
What is Real Plans?
Unlike meal delivery kits, Real Plans is a highly customizable meal planning tool for people who want to cook.
Real Plans tailors to your family’s specific size, diets, tastes, and preferences—giving you a schedule of recipes and an interactive shopping list so you can streamline the process to getting wholesome, home-cooked food on your table.
Unlike common, static PDF meal planners, Real Plans remains flexible to changing tastes and schedules—no matter who you’re feeding, how often you plan to cook, and what you feel like eating this week.
We also provide you with over 1600 kitchen-tested recipes to get started (and many more to add from your favorite food bloggers), so you don’t have to scour the internet for inspiration.
How long does it take to cook the meals?
Real Planning tip number one: be realistic about how often you’ll cook. Time in the kitchen depends on how many recipes you’re game to prep.
In Real Plans settings, you can specify how many breakfasts, lunches, and dinners you’d like included each week.
You can always filter for “simple recipes.”
Batch cooking, yummy leftovers and the occasional cooking holiday (ahem, takeout + wine) encouraged.
What is the average food budget for Real Plans?
Real Plans is used globally and costs of food vary greatly country to country, state to state. That said, we love happy bellies and happy wallets.
We’ve built a pricing filter that allows you to choose recipes based on cost and have a recipe tag for “budget meals.”
Savvy Real Planners find they save money by selecting a realistic number of meals they’ll cook in a week and because ingredients map to a specific recipe, food actually gets cooked (and gobbled).
Less food waste equals less money wasted.
Our Facebook group has some pretty clutch budget-tips and a boatload of ideas for swapping out pricey ingredients.
I don’t live in the US, will the recipes still work for me?
We have customers from all over the world!
Your plan will be generated using seasonal recipes for your hemisphere.
And, you can choose metric measurements if you’d like.
Can I cancel my subscription at any time?
YES. To cancel, simply follow this link and log in to your account if not already. You will have access to your plan for the remainder of the subscription cycle. Since renewals are not refundable, we suggest you cancel your subscription 2 working days before the renewal is due in order to make sure the cancellation is processed in time.
