Start by clicking on the Real Plans banner at the bottom of your screen. Next, navigate to My Settings > Options.
Our Personal Options will set your default number of servings, favorite place to shop, and allow you to set your email preferences. Changing these settings will not overwrite your meal plans, so feel free to change these at any time should the need arise.
Our Regional Options will set your measurement preference and timezone. Changing these settings will not overwrite your meal plans, so feel free to change these at any time should the need arise.
With our Advanced Settings, you can fine tune your Meal Planner and Recipe Box to improve your search results and find the recipes that work for you.
Show All “Serve With” Suggestions
Most of our entrees have a suggested recipe to serve with the entree as a side dish. Turning this function on will allow you to see all the “serve with” suggestions, even if they do not meet your current dietary preferences. If you only wish to see “serve with” suggestions that fit your diet type and exclusions, you would need to turn this function off by sliding the toggle to the left to turn it red (off).
Show All Recipe Variants
Our recipes have many different variations to serve the different diet types we accommodate. The same recipe might have dairy-free, gluten-free, AIP, and Whole30 versions. To only see the variant that applies to your diet type, slide the toggle to red to turn this function off.
Show My Diet Tag to Recipe Box
With this function turned on, “My Diet” will be selected by default when you go to the Recipe Box. If you prefer to manually select “My Diet” in the Recipe Box, you can slide the toggle to red to turn this feature off.
If you have our Whole30 subscription, you can turn your Whole30 function off here when you have completed your Whole30 program, if desired. You can turn it back on at any time should you wish to do another round of Whole30.
It is important to select the correct hemisphere and weekly start day for your plan.
**Please note that changing any settings on this page will change your entire plan, so if you’ve created the perfect plan for this week, be sure to save it to your computer or print your plan before applying any changes here.**
You can easily adjust your Equipment Settings to turn off appliances you don’t own. This will keep recipes using those appliances from showing up in your Meal Planner or Recipe Box. Simply slide the toggle to green for the appliances you own and to red for the ones you don’t. (You may need to log out and back in for these setting to apply.)
You can change your Equipment Settings at any time, so if you end up getting a pressure cooker for Christmas, just come back and slide the toggle to green to see all of our delicious pressure cooker recipes!
