myKitchen Meal Planner Tool (FREE)
myKitchen is a powerful interactive meal planner that allows you to drag and drop your recipes into a fully customizable meal planner and generate tailored shopping lists. Here’s how it works!
1. Register for/Login to the site (it’ll only take a second, and it’s free)
*You will receive a verification email, which will contain a special link you’ll need to click before you can login.* This helps us prevent spam accounts from registering.
2. View any recipe on our site and click “Add to myKitchen”
These will be stored as favorites (so to speak), which you can use in the meal planner. These recipes also sync to our free companion app for iPhone and Android!
3. Click “myKitchen” in the middle of the menu bar to access the meal planner
myKitchen is now front and center on the website. Click myKitchen to see your favorite recipes and any meal planning you’ve been working on. You can even save what you’ve been working on by clicking “Save all menus” under myMenus.
4. Drag and drop recipes from myRecipes (left column) into myMenus (center column)
myRecipes are organized by category, and provide you with quick information to help make meal planning easier. You’ll see how much each recipe makes (and don’t worry, you can change it later), how long it’ll take to make the recipe, and there is also a quick link to view the recipe easily. Hover over a recipe to reveal an “X” which will allow you to delete it. To add recipes to the meal planner (center column), just drag and drop!
5. Change serving sizes, rearrange days, and add or delete days in myMenus.
In the meal planner, you can change serving sizes of recipes, and it will reflect updated values in your shopping list. You can also add or delete days, and rearrange them. If you want to do a whole month’s meal planning in one shot, go for it! It could also be equally useful if you are planning a large get together. Simply add recipes to myKitchen, drag them into the meal planner, increase the serving size, then print or email the shopping list to yourself. It couldn’t be easier!
6. Delete any ingredients you have, then print (or email) your shopping list and meal plan.
In the right column, you’ll see ingredients you need organized by type. If you know you have a certain ingredient, you can delete it from the shopping list to avoid confusion. Once you’re ready, click Print or email it yourself. If you want an even more mobile-friendly user experience, download our free companion app, called myKitchen, available for iPhone and Android.
7. Click “Save All Menus” at the top of the center column if you want to save your work!
Keep track of what you’ve been working on by clicking save. It’s located in the center column, right below myMenus.

Best of all, we have released myKitchen as a FREE app! We could not have done this without the partnership of our friends at US Wellness Meats. We spoke with John Wood back in May when we visited US Wellness Meats. He was very excited about the idea of teaming with us to provide a free meal planning app to the paleo community, and took a huge leap of faith by partnering with us to create this app. To thank the US Wellness Meats family making such a generous contribution to the greater good of our community we want toencourage you all to consider giving them your business when you want to buy good quality food. They offer grass-fed, free-range meats and a great variety of other products in their virtual storefront. They ship these meats and foods right to your doorstep! Visit US Wellness Meats and put in an order to say “thanks” to the amazing folks that helped make this free app possible.
