Relish! Menu Planning Services Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Have you ever been in that rut? You know, the rut when it comes to planning your dinner for the week but you seem to have the same items on the menu?

With Relish! menu planning services you have the chance to make new meals for your family every week! Not only do you get to try these new meals, but Relish! also makes compiles all the ingredients into a printable grocery list!

My two favorite new family recipes I found on Relish are Taco Soup and slow cooker Cilantro-Lime Chicken!

Each week Relish offers different menu options. You simply drag and drop the recipe into your weekly menu. Each recipe is automatically paired with a side dish. If you do not care for the side dish you can switch it to one of the many side dish options in the Relish database. If you would like to make your traditional family favorite, Relish! gives you the option to add your own recipes!

You can add as many or as few menu options for the week as you would like.

When you have decided on your weekly menu you can formulate your shopping list. The shopping list is broken down into specific areas of the store (bread, dairy, meat, etc). The top section of the grocery list is common items that you may already have, such as cooking oil, salt, pepper, etc. You can check off items you already have, which will show them crossed out when you print off the list.  Each item on the list will have a code letter behind it (if it is part of the meals you have chosen for the week), so you'll know which recipe each item belongs to.  If you need to get stuff at the grocery store besides the menu options you choose through Relish, you also have the ability to add any item to the list you would like.

Shopping with a list can reduce your grocery bill every month because you won't be over-buying, or buying on impulse and the way the list is set up you aren't spending as much time in the grocery store either.

By selecting 5 meals a week from Relish you will be spending less than $90 for a nutritious meal, whether you choose kid friendly options, slow cooker options, vegetarian options or all of the above!

A subscription to Relish! Menu Planning is $7/month.

This service has been a great way to introduce new meals to my family. I like giving the kids something new to try. I haven't been using it for daily meal planning, but do a few of the recipes a week. I have been very pleased with how they have all turned out! I really like the grocery list option! The way they organize the list makes for a very efficient grocery trip.
