What Is A Meal Planner?

A good meal planner lets you plan your meals ahead of time and create a nutrition budget that saves time, organises food consumption and provides better distribution of nutrients.

Without the need for paperwork, PDFs, or emails, Foodzilla makes it simple to create meal plans using our recipe database or your own recipes and send them to your clients through our mobile app.

If you'd like, you can email your clients a PDF of your meal plan. Over 100,000 recipes in our recipe database already have their nutrition data calculated. The recipes are tagged with nutrition information and are suitable for a variety of diets, including keto, vegan, vegetarian, and FODMAP-free diets.

Additionally, you can choose from pre-made meal plan templates or have an automatic meal plan that meets your client's nutritional needs generated in a matter of seconds.

Meal Plan Templates

Templates are reusable meal plans for a group of clients (such as clients suffering from IBS, vegetarian diets and so on). They can also be customised to fit the individual's needs when imported as a meal plan.

We already provide a template database for you so you can get started easily, and we always look into adding more ready-to-use templates. If what you're looking for is not there, you can just generate it using our meal plan auto-generation feature.

Meal Plan Details

Meal plans in Foodzilla consists of the following: Name, Notes, Recurrence, Foods, and Recipes.

Notes let you record some information related to this plan and the client.

Recurrence lets you repeat the meal plan until the selected end date. This makes it easy to repeat a weekly meal plan to be a monthly plan.

In the recipes section, you can add your own recipes or choose from our recipe database. You can also edit each recipe in the meal plan to customise to the client needs without affecting the original recipe.
