Once your meal plan is created you can add meals to your shopping list with the touch of a button creating a shopping list in minutes.

How does it work?  

Your tasty meal plan is personalised based on your likes and dislikes. If you fancy a treat one night or have friends coming over simply swap out your budget meal and add something indulgent with a starter and delicious dessert if required.
