Diet FAQs

  • I am gluten free but the rest of my family isn’t. Can I see all options within my plan type?

    THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST PARTS OF REAL PLANS. Sorry for the all caps, but this is our superpower.  Your preferences will be marked as a filter called ‘My Diet’. That said, you can always add recipes that fall outside of your diet. ie. if you’re dying for spaghetti Wednesdays but doing paleo the rest of the week, you can search and add the best gluteny recipes we’ve got. We’ll even add it weekly if you’d like (seriously, no judgements). This is mega helpful for dealing with families with a variety of food preferences and restrictions.

  • You decide how many people you want each meal to serve when you sign up. All meals will default to that serving size, but if you’re having guests over or the kiddos are at a friend’s house for dinner you can increase or decrease the number of servings as needed. The recipe, ingredients and shopping list will automatically update.

  • Yes, and as often as you like. We hope the recipes in your planner inspire you to love new types of food, meet personal goals or improve health challenges. Whenever you update your food groups and ingredient exceptions in the settings tab, Real Plans will put together new meal plans for the following four weeks.

  • It does! But, if your days start out like the tornadoes that ours do, you might not be up for cooking in the morning. In that case you can just add ingredients—milk, eggs, oats, etc—to your plan and they’ll automatically be added to your shopping list. That said, lots of Real Planners find cooking batch breakfasts and freezing them in single servings is a ridiculously easy time-saver.

Shopping FAQs

  • Can I change the day my week starts on?

    You can choose the day you would like to start your week in your settings. So, if your CSA box arrives on a Wednesday or you do most of your grocery shopping on Sundays, you can plan accordingly.

Recipes FAQs

  • What about meatless Mondays or a slow cooker meal every Wednesday?

    Ready to be a meal planning pro, are you? Love it. You can customize your schedule by meal size, main ingredient, prep time, tags, cuisine and origin.

  • Yes, you can plan your ideal week on the My Schedule page. You can choose exactly which days and meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner, extras)  you’d like recipes scheduled for.

Billing FAQs

  • How do I get a refund?
