Meal planning is the number one recommendation I have for anyone who 1) is having a hard time consistently following Paleo or the AIP, 2) needs to make some dietary changes but feels overwhelmed, 3) is feeling really stressed by how much shopping and cooking they’re doing, 4) is having a hard time managing food budgets or time commitments in the kitchen, 5) is struggling to meet their health goals and needs help staying on track, or 6) has diverse nutritional needs to accommodate in the household (like one person who is AIP, someone else who follows a Primal diet, and maybe an extra allergy or two just to complicate things even more). Not only does planning ahead take the stress out of meals for the week, but it increases our success rate at sticking to dietary priorities, minimizes our time shopping and cooking, and makes sure we’re never left in the lurch when it comes to safe, nourishing and tasty meals for ourselves and our families.
And when it comes to meal planning, you just can’t beat Real Plans. Thousands of curated recipes, completely customizable meal plans, an app to help you stay on track at the grocery store, timeline to help you be efficient in the kitchen, 24-hour customer service, 30-day money-back guarantee, and starting at only $6 per month. Plus, Real Plans caters to the Primal, Paleo and AIP communities! Need I say more?
It’s really no secret that I’m a huge fan of Real Plans. I think this simple-to-use, sophisticated-yet-sleek tool is a great strategy for everyone! And for those of you following the AIP, there’s some great new reasons to take a closer look at this spectacular service!
I first learned about Anton and Emily’s Real Plans tool last year. Since then I’ve been using it to keep my own family focused on tasty, nutritious meals. The truth is that even though I develop recipes, sometimes putting them together into a workable, balanced meal plan is just more than I have time for. I’ve saved an incredible amount of time and energy using this easy, customizable tool, plus, it’s helped me stay within my budget!

I’ve been totally gung-ho when it comes to putting my own recipes into Real Plans because I want to make it as easy as possible for you to take advantage of this tool! I’ve already contributed over 100 AIP recipes to Real Plans (and more than 330 total recipes!!!), but I’ve recently added 50 more—that means you can now access over 800 AIP recipes on Real Plans!
Plus, there are quite a few new tools to celebrate, too. One of my favorite features of Real Plans is its totally customizable setup. It’s designed to work with our families, not set up a rigid plan we must follow. That’s because it was designed by a real husband and wife team with a real family to feed!
In an effort to be even more flexible, Anton and Emily and their team developed new features that will help you save your preferences from week to week! I don’t know about yours, but my family are definitely creatures of habit! We often like to eat the same things from week to week (for some reason 50/50/50 burgers and steamed broccoli never get boring in my house!), and now we no longer have to make these changes in our plan every week.
So, we can schedule a (Paleo) Taco Tuesday, make Wednesday night a weekly crockpot meal night, or even filter by main ingredients so we’re always including our favorites in our plan. And as always, we can download the app and take it with us to the grocery store, meaning all our shopping lists, notes and meal prep timeline are right at hand when we need them.
So, let me break it down for you.

- Customizable meal plans
