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.

Foodzilla makes it easy to create meal plans using our recipes database or with your own recipes and send them to your clients through our mobile app seamlessly without needing papers, PDFs, or emails.

You can also print your meal plan as a PDF and email it to your clients if you like. Our recipe database has over 100,000 recipes with nutrition information already calculated. The recipes are labelled with nutrition tags and suit all kinds of diets such as FODMAP-free diets, keto, vegan, vegetarian and more.

You can also auto-generate a meal plan with specific nutrition requirements using our meal plan template generator or choose from existing meal plan templates.

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

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.
