The Wholesome Yum App Meal Plan in 4 Easy Steps

The tutorial steps below that will walk you through the app’s features.

STEP 1: CUSTOMIZE YOUR MEAL PLAN

On mobile, tap the Meal Plan item in the bottom navigation to see your curated meal plan for the week. You can adjust this to your liking in the following ways…

Pick individual or family. Toggle the switch at the top left to alternate between one person or a family of 4.

(This just changes the recipes in the pre-filled plan, but you can scale recipes to ANY number of servings!)

Pick your week. The default date is the current week, but you can use the arrows next to the calendar view to select a past week if you were subscribed before this week, or the following week if it’s after Thursday. (Next week’s plan is released every Thursday.)

EasyKetoAppTutorial additems

Add recipes or foods to your plan. Use the “+” circle to add more recipes to your plan, or add individual foods (such as an avocado or some nuts, if you want to track them but are not using them in a full recipe).

EasyKetoAppTutorial createleftovers

Create leftovers, drag and drop, or remove items. Swipe right on any recipe or food in your plan to:

Move it to another meal (such as from breakfast to lunch) or to another day of the week

Create leftovers (your automatic grocery list in the app will take this into account!)

Delete an item you don’t like

Alternatively, use the pencil in the top right corner to enter edit mode. This will activate the ability to drag-and-drop or delete via icons.

EasyKetoAppTutorial trackmacros

Track your macros automatically. As you make changes to your meal plan, your macros automatically calculate for you! You’ll be able to see if you have room to add things, and the circles will turn red if you’re over on anything.

On desktop, you can also easily customize your plan. Navigate recipes in the “Browse Recipes” section on the right, and drag and drop into your plan as needed.

The desktop web app has all the same functionality of macros, leftovers, and customization.

Step 2: Use The Automatic Grocery List To Buy Groceries

Additional features:

Tap the info icon next to any grocery item to see what recipe it’s for

Step 3: Easy Keto Cooking, With Optional Meal Prep

Once you have your groceries, head over to the Meal Prep tab. You don’t have to meal prep, but most Wholesome Yum app subscribers choose to do at least some meal prep.

Don’t be overwhelmed by the options here – we offer meal prep ideas for EVERY recipe where it’s possible, but it doesn’t mean you have to meal prep it all.

Start with just meal prepping lunch, which is where many of us need the most time savings. Then, if you want to meal prep a breakfast to enjoy throughout the week, OR if you want to do some chopping or prepping for upcoming dinners, you can do some of those. It’s completely up to you!

On desktop, the meal prep tab shows all the same meal prep instructions — it syncs automatically with your mobile device, and vice versa.

Overview Of The Meal Plan & Key App Features:

You can customize meal plans as much or as little as you like. But to begin, we create a meal plan for you with the following principles and features.

EasyKetoAppTutorial trackmacros

Choosing Your Plan:

When you first login, you’ll see your curated meal plan for the week. Select Individual for a meal plan for one person, or Family for a family of 4.

The default date is the current week, but you can use the calendar to select a past week if you were subscribed before this week, or the following week on Thursdays.

Lunch & Dinner:

We include lunch and dinner in the plan to start. Lunch and dinner are approximately 12-20g net carbs combined, leaving you room for breakfast and snacks based on your goals and needs. Each individual meal in our curated plans is typically 5-10g net carbs.

BREAKFAST:

Breakfast is a hot topic among keto followers, ranging from intermittent fasting, keto coffee, or a full meal. We leave it up to you.

You get a breakfast meal prep idea each week up in the top right corner, and you can fill in the weekdays with it at the click of a button. You can also search dozens of other breakfast recipes, as described under Customizing Your Meal Plan below.

Meal Prep & Leftovers:

Recipes in your meal plan are conveniently labeled with “meal prep” and “leftovers” tags.

The “meal prep” tag simply means that you have an option to meal prep this recipe, either by batching or by preparing some components ahead of time. This is not required at all, but can save you time if you choose to take advantage of it. You can see full instructions for every recipe in your Meal Prep area.

The “leftovers” tag indicates that this meal is using leftovers from the same meal prepared earlier in the week. We’ll enjoy these a few times a week, because who has time to cook 3 meals a day, every day?! Don’t worry – you’ll still get plenty of variety.

Meal plan customization view.

Customizing Your Meal Plan:

If you don’t like something in the plan, you can customize it with drag-and-drop.

On mobile, You can also swipe right on recipes to change the date and time when they show up on your plan (or delete them). Finally, when browsing recipes, you can tap the plus icon on any dish to decide the date and time when it will display on your plan.

On desktop, simply click the X to remove a recipe you don’t want, and search hundreds of recipes to find something else you like. Browse by category or ingredient or simply search. And then drag it over to your meal plan. Customize as much or as little as you like!

If you want to have 2 recipes for a meal, such as a soup and salad or entree and side dish, click the “add another” button (or plus sign icon on mobile) to add a spot to add another recipe to the same meal for the same day. You can also do this with individual foods, such as a serving of berries.

To Add Custom Recipes:

If you have your own recipes you want to add, you can use the Add Custom Recipe feature. We ask that you please respect recipe authors and don’t enter other blogger recipes without their permission, but this is a great place for your own or family recipes, so that you can include them in your meal plan.

After you create a recipe, it will be available here in the right column, under the My Custom Recipes heading.

Macros:

Macros are macronutrients in your food – fat, protein, and carbohydrates. You’ll see macro icons next to each recipe – hover over these to see that recipe’s macros.

To see how your plan stacks up against your macros, head over to the Macro Tracker. This is a personalized tool that will help you to keep track of the calories, net carbs, fat, protein and even ounces of water that you have consumed that day. This allows you to make sure you do not exceed your allotted macros each day. For it to work, you’ll need to set up your own macros in the My Macros area (link at the top of the app), and we provide a built-in macro calculator to calculate them for you.

Customize button Wholesome Yum app.

If you want to replace or change an ingredient, simply click the 3 dots on the right hand side of the ingredient. Hit edit, replace, or delete to change it to another ingredient.
