Introduce Yourself to the Community!


I’m Kay and I’m a 40 year old professional organizer in Boston and my husband and I are OBSESSED with Mealime. We’ve been using it for about a year now and it really helps us not waste food and to make better choices about meals in the evenings. I’m a little too obsessed with the veggie burrito bowl right now. LOL :rofl:


Hello Everyone. My name is Ria, I am a stay at home mommy and wife of 5 kids and 1 hubby, ranging from 15 - 2 months (kids of course lol). I am looking to give myself and my family a healthier lifestyle. I currently started using the fitbit and am becoming more aware of bad habits and lack of good nutrition and excessive bad nutrition. It’s amazing to me how many carbs and how much sodium is in food! Not to mention the lack of water we drink. It’s frustrating and difficult to meal plan and shop when u are clueless and have very little time to spare. I am looking forward to the simplicity this app offers and the variety of meals. I just looked at my first 4 meals and checked off the ingredients I already have and it left me with a smile, 14 things to get at the store to feed my family for the next 4 days. It’s a good start and the meals look more than fabulous! I’m excited to offer my family fun, exciting new meals while also offering healthy and nutritious food! Thank you for your hard work so people like me don’t have to work so hard!


Welcome to Mealime, Kay! I’m not sure if it’s possible to be too obsessed with a burrito bowl! Haha. Thanks for introducing yourself :slight_smile:

Hello Ria! Welcome to Mealime and the community - thanks so much for sharing your story. It’s great to hear that you’ve found the app useful so far; hopefully this continues!



I just downloaded this app today. I’m looking to improve the overall eating habits for my family. I liked the reviews I saw and it seems pretty easy to use. I am busy looking through the recipes and so far, I like it! I’m eager to try it starting next Sunday. I threw in a recipe I make that is a favorite of my husband’s into your community thread of adding recipes. Baked Chicken wings. They come out crispy and really tasty. I said serves 2-4 because while I can eat 6 pieces… my husband can throw down 12 easy. Anyway, hi! looking forward to using your app and hopefully eating healthier and saving $$$ at the grocery store. The grocery list is a big plus for me.

That’s it for now.

Welcome Trish! Hope you keep finding the app helpful! And thanks for sharing that recipe with us. That’s great!


Hello! I just upgraded to Mealime pro today after using it for nearly five months now. I’d just like to say thank you for leveling up my chef game. I started off just with two meals a week and have worked my way up to five now. I feel more confident in the kitchen and really enjoy the easy recipes + shopping help. Having never learned to cook this app really changed my life - I look forward to cooking more new recipes! :sunny:


Hi there @Brunsonja! Thanks so much for upgrading to Pro - we really appreciate your support :slight_smile: You’ve done exactly what we recommend - started out small and slowly upped things as you got more comfortable. Way to go!


Hi there,

My name is Elaine and I’m a Reigstered Dietitian that stumbled upon this app one day looking for ways to help my clients with easy, healthy meals. I knew it was amazing after the first week of trying it for myself. My cooking-challenged boyfriend loves it because we save tons of money and he is able to create wonderful meals just by following simple instructions. I’ve recommended to all my patients and get TONs of satisfied feedback. If you’ve had a burst of memberships in Hawaii, you’re very welcome. :wink: I’m so happy this app exists. You are helping people change their lives, their health, and their families for the better. Keep up the great work!

Wow! That’s really amazing to hear Elaine! Thanks so much for sharing the app with your patients. We will keep working hard to make sure this stays a great resource for you!


Hi! My name is Dana and I came across this app as a great idea to meal planning.

My husband and I work full time, and have 2 young (aka picky) kids. With several allergies, and dislikes, I was hesitant to pay for a subscription service that 1 - didnt take into account the allergies or dislikes, or 2 - delivered food to my house for way too high of cost.

We buy meat in bulk, so I always try to use what we have before buying more.

Things I love about the app so far (first week using it):

  • love that I can choose how many meals to cook. That is huge with events happening at night, or family outings, I know some weeks I will need 5 meals, and others I will only need 2.
  • LOVE that it automatically omits meals that we have allergies or dislikes to.
  • love that we’re eating good, healthy meals, and we can change it up at any time!


Hi! I’m Brigid, just looking to get into cooking more instead of eating out all the time. Hopefully this will be an easy way to do it!


Hi Brigid! You rock.

Hi all - my name is Caitlin. I currently live in San Diego, CA, USA, currently 29 years old and I’m a full-stack developer.

I’m here because I need to find a more cost effective approach to grocery shopping, eat healthy delicious meals, and lose a bit of weight in the meantime.

In my free time I like to take my puppy to the dog beach, do some coding for side projects, and explore taquerias in Tijuana.


Hi- my name is Kiyoko and I am a new member of the Mealime Team. My official title is Manager of Customer Success, I think it makes me sound like I’m a superhero. I am really excited to be part of a community that wants to eat healthier, cook more often at home,save money, and have less food wastes. Some things my household has been pretty guilty of not doing

I love exploring the outdoors in the beautiful Comox Valley were I currently live. I am particularly fond of trail running. I also happen to be an avid knitter and sewist. These hobbies tend to lean towards a quick turn around at meal times. Mealime is really helping with that. My biggest concern just now is how to prevent my hubby for using the key ingredients we need for meals at other times. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I am looking forward to hearing from all of you and helping support Mealime users to -stress less about food, cause we all have to eat like everyday:)


Hi Dana,

As you buy meat in bulk the search function might be useful. Tap the magnifying glass icon in the upper-right hand corner of the planner to search by keyword.


Hi! I’m Amanda. Just found the app! I’m a cool, my husband and I have two dogs, and I love hiking. Mealime is amazing.


We keep a drawer of non-.eal plan ingredients,. This helps! If it’s in the two meal plan drawers (older veg in one bin, newer in the other), it’s off limits.


Hi all! My name is Holly, reigining from NH. I am a busy mom to two beautiful girls ages 5 and 2 and fiance to a wonderful man :heart::family_man_woman_girl_girl: we are spending too much many on lazy eating choices because i feel like i don’t have time to prepare meals during the week. I used to stay at home, but now that I’m back to work life is hectic! So here I am hoping i can bust out some serious good eats during the week! Thanks for making this app free! :clap::money_with_wings:


I’m Jana! I live in the Midwest. I found Mealime while trying to figure out cooking solutions for an undernourished family member, and then ended up liking it so much that I started using it for myself and recommending to friends and family. I actually love meal planning and cooking, but I love the nutritionally complete nature of the meals.


Hi Everyone, my name is Sherry. I work full-time and I would like to use Mealime for inspiration. I work out 2x o week. And I l
