They’ll equip you with not only the meal plan, but also details recipes, a grocery list, a mobile app, and more. It couldn’t be easier!

The recipes aren’t forced on you, though. You actually will receive 15 different recipes to choose from each week, and then you can scale them to feed your family, whether you need 2 servings or 8 servings.  The meals aren’t super complicated or time consuming to make. In fact, each meal takes just 30 minutes or less to prepare.  Do you have a dietary need? Relish can customize meal plans to accomodate vegetarian lifestyles, kid-friendly selections, dinner parties, and more.


How does it work? Sign up for Relish for $7.00 a month, or you can save and purchase a yearly subscription for $58.80 (only $4.90 per month!). You’ll receive an email each Thursday morning reminding you that you have a new menu. Just log into your account and choose your recipes. Drag the recipes into your weekly menu, then go to the grocery list tab and select what size you’ll want to feed (2, 4, 6, or 8). You can remove items from that populated grocyer list that you might already have, such as spices, and then print your grocery list. If you prefer to be paperless, you can email the grocery list to yourself.

    I am wicked bad about menu planning. I know I could save a ton of money by doing it, but I just haven’t yet.

  2. Relish! sounds great. I’ve been wanting to get into more home cooked meals, and this is the perfect way to make that easier on myself.

  3. This is actually something we have been discussing. We run out of ideas and it would be nice to have the meals planned for us.

  4. $7 a month is a super good deal! Meal planning definitely takes a lot of work if you do it on your own, so Ithink $7 a month is well worth the service they are performing.

  5. I am terrible about meal planning. I really do need to get more organized!

  6. I have REALLY been struggling to come up with dinner ideas for my family and meal planning is just so hard for me. I’m going to have to check Relish out!

  7. I myself, am very organized when it comes to meal planning and prep, but this is a great idea for people who struggle with it!!

  10. This is such a handy way to eat better, save time and save money. We love having our meals planned and being able to pick what we like.

  11. we’re seriously the worst at meal planning, and i was answering yes to all those questions at the beginning haha. i wish they would also send you the ingredients too though. i don’t know when grocery shopping has become such a drag for us lately.

    I am ALL ABOUT meal planning (or at least I’m trying to be!) Relish sounds like a get resource for making meal planning easier. I’ll definitely have to check them out <3

  13. For $7 a month that is a bargain! I always try to meal plan but sometimes you get in a recipe rut.

  14. This seems like a really cool service. It’s not too expensive and it will save a lot of grocery planning.

    Relish sounds great! I bet my sister would love relish. This will definitely save her time and money! I will send this to her. Thanks for sharing!

  16. I usually plan a simple meal and I always garnish it up with mushrooms, or some other fresh vegetables, fruit, lettuce etc. just so it looks a tad different than the day before or the last time we had it. Relish is great idea.

  17. I should check this out. I seriously need to plan my meals. I keep saying I will, then never get around to it.

  18. Seems great – I always like to be able to make healthy meals for a healthier life.

  19. I really need a good meal planner. Thank you so much for all the suggestions! I will put these into good use!
