Best meal planning app!
Intent has been the best meal planning app we have used! It has a simple yet attractive interface and is user-friendly. We have been using it for a few weeks now, and the thing that truly stands out is a lack of pressure. It is simply a meal planning app that provides suggestions for your goals but isn’t a diet coach. Many of us download a meal planning app to get ideas, try new foods, and hone our diet. But we end up feeling pressured to enter daily calories or to follow the plan to a T. I guess that’s the quantified life we all have fallen into by having every metric our watches and phones are measuring presented to us in pretty graphs. This app is simply a great meal planning app. We love that it can be curated to your goals, the meals are great, the ability to adjust it whenever you want and take leftovers into account is extremely helpful. The grocery list is convenient, and integration with Instacart is convenient, though what Instacart interprets falls short from time to time, but that’s Instacart, not this app. The first week we were using it, I received a little message thanking us for trying it and inviting us to provide feedback. I honestly thought it was a bot but had a few ideas that would be nice. I was impressed to end up in a dialogue with someone from the Developer. I highly suggest giving it a shot! I can’t wait to see how they evolve.

Lifesaver for my ADHD
This is literally the best meal planning app ever, and it’s FREE! You get to choose what recipes you like for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for however long you need. You get to list foods you don’t like to ensure those recipes won’t include them. So it plans out what you eat everyday based on recipes you chose (it can account for leftovers too!), then the best part in my opinion, is it compiles a grocery list of every ingredient for every recipe + snacks and side dishes!!! That way you don’t buy groceries you won’t need and you know exactly what amounts of everything to buy. (You can check off each item on the grocery list too!!!) It’s a perfect app that makes my life so much easier. From a technical standpoint, there isn’t anything wrong with it either. It hardly ever glitches and almost always runs smoothly. There are in app purchases and you can get the premium version for access to certain locked recipes (not too many & if you want it that bad you can look it up) or add your own recipes. Not necessary though and the app has full functionality without paying a dime! Get this app if you’re single and don’t know how to cook for only one person, or if you have a family, you get to choose the servings!!! It’s seriously the best.

Love it
The app is really great. Firstly, it helps me prep meals and takes away the stress of what to eat. Second, I love how many options there are and how it helps me achieve my weight goal. Third, the recipes included are delicious, easy to make and a great place to learn how food works together healthy. Fourth, it’s affordable. Not only is the app at a fair price, but their grocery lists for the week for in person do not exceed $100. That comes out to being less than $10 a day on all my meals! Fifth, I’m actually minimizing food waste as old recipe ingredients are built into next weeks recipes & it teaches me when I can eat leftovers. Sixth the recipes are catered to feed however many mouths you’re trying to feed. So instead of shopping for a family and wasting all my food, I’m actually eating for just me. It helps me strategize meal planning too. Seventh, all recipes are quick so even after a long day of teaching, I can come home, cook and relax reasonably. Finally their customer support is with you the whole way, they’ll listen to your needs, wants and just converse with you on how the app is working. Deff would recommend if you’re looking to learn how to budget, food manage, cook and eat healthy!

It’s a good app 3.5 stars
I’ve used the app for a year before writing the review. I do think the app is generally really good for the paid version. It’s easy to choose to plan a certain number of meals for each day, it takes into account preferences and diet type, it gives you a pretty accurate calorie count for the meal (cross checked using my fitness pal). The cons I have is that I love variety and near the end I was starting to get very frustrated that it kept suggesting the same meals over and over even though the database has a LOT more recipes than what was constantly being suggested even within my dietary guidelines. The side dishes and snacks are severely lacking in terms of variety so I end up deleting sides and picking other vegetables/fruits (many of which aren’t even options to log) from the grocery store. If you choose low carb be prepared for all of your suggested sides to be spaghetti squash or cauliflower rice. I like both but dang it can I get other options?!? Also I love foods from various countries. It’s obvious that the Indian, Thai, Chinese, etc meals are pretty whitewashed. Less flavor and sometimes odd pairings. I suggest finding more authentic recipes and tweaking them to fit your dietary needs or adding more spices than what’s suggested. Overall it’ll get the job done but there’s definitely room for improvement.

Great for the most part!
This app is great for my meal planning and has multiple diet-type options. It makes my meal planning so much easier especially when there is a chaotic week. However the only flaw is you can’t add your own side or snack. For example, there isn’t any nutritional options for the bread, yogurt, and ketchup that I buy. I am a Type1 diabetic and need these specific products to keep my glucose levels in balance. You only have the option to add a recipe, which you can only add to the main meal when planning. You also can’t add a meal to snack or side. Example, I can add my yogurt to a meal if I create a recipe, but I can’t add eggs because they are both main meal options. **I would love to see an option in the next update to add your own side and snack, so that you can work those better items into the meal plan. I’m asking for the option to pick if you want this to main meal, side, or snack. I am totally fine with adding all the nutrient info manually like it is for recipes. I am not asking to turn this into a carb counting or fitness tracking app. I just wanted to be able to customize the above options, so I don’t have to manually calculate nutrients for what I’m eating in the plan given if I don’t have the same item. Thank you for your time.

Honestly a life saver
I never write reviews because honestly, I’m pretty lazy and rarely anything is worth a good review anymore because most apps are just meh. You pay for it and never use it again after a week or two because it’s basically irrelevant. However, this app is a lifesaver for busy people, especially parents. I had just about given up on making dinner because it became so much work to try and figure out what to eat after 4 hours of sports after school. It was easier to just throw chicken nuggets in the air fryer and call it good because I never had any idea what to make. And then I’d find myself just snacking instead of eating anything substantial and I’d wake up starving. This app figures it all out for me. It allows me to pick my meals, how many people will eat those meals, tells me what to get at the grocery store, allows me to filter recipes that have foods my family doesn’t eat, and gives me the macronutrients for each recipe so there’s literally no guessing for me. If you’re struggling with what to make for your daily meals and sick of eating the same things over and over or just snacking your way through the day: this is the app for you. Well worth the money.

Takes the Guess Work out of Dinner
If you’re looking for a meal prep app this is it. My husband and I would usually bicker around dinner time because neither of us knew what we wanted to eat. We were tired of constantly cooking the same 10 recipes or ordering take out. We tried other apps like Meals or Noom, but we were constantly having to take trips to the grocery store, and honestly, who has time for that? With this app, we plan our meals ahead of time, and we can customize the dishes to fit our needs and preferences. At the end, the app generates a grocery list with all of the portion sizes you’ll need for the week. It is so comforting to know what we’ll be eating each day and that everything is in the fridge or pantry ready to go. Since my husband works from home, I set the dinner option to three people so that he has leftovers for lunch. No more having to run to the nearest take out stand between meetings. This app has saved our wallets and waistlines. Also, my husband and I cook together for dinner now. No more bickering or arguing in the evening. It’s heaven. Thanks to all the ppl who made this app. 😘😘😘

Does it all for you!
So far, I’m impressed. This is the kind of app I didn’t know that I was looking for but am so glad I found. Since finding this app, I have to say that I finally feel motivated to lose the weight that I’ve ignored for years but has bothered me so much. One of my biggest challenges has been food, and planning what to eat and tracking. It’s always been a nuance to me, but this app does it all for you! It has you answer a bunch of questions but it’s all so that it can plan to fit your lifestyle which a lot of these cook books, meal plans, or calorie trackers don’t do. You can swap meal options if you’d rather eat something else, you can choose a food lifestyle like if you’re pescatarian for example, you can pick what meals in the day you eat like for me I’m a breakfast, lunch, snack person, and it’ll format your meals around all that and more. I think that this app is gonna be so helpful for people like me who struggle to plan and track, or lack the motivation to. I can’t rave enough about this app. I’ve already recommended to a few friends and family, that’s how excited I am!!

Game Changer
I cook for my large family who has various dietary needs. I also don’t cook every meal for every person. Being able to have profiles for everyone in the family and then select who I’m cooking for when planning meals for the week is a total game changer. Two of us are diabetic, 2 have food allergies, we mostly follow the “clean eating” plan but were able to customize the macros to add higher amounts of protein, less fat, and even my carb target since I’m diabetic. It also adjusts portion sizes based on individual needs. It will let me know on the meal plan I should have a half serving for lunch and, for example, and add more protein, and my husband could have 2 servings. Then it generates a shopping list and adjusts the recipe so I only purchase and cook what’s needed for our various needs. PLUS it is SO easy to add favorite recipes from various websites or even our own favorites (although the suggested recipes we’ve tried so far have all been fantastic) and seamlessly integrates them into the meal plans and adds the nutrition info automatically. Total genius! Can’t praise this app enough!

I love this app!
I absolutely love this app! It has a database of recipes to choose from, creates a customized & completely customizable meal plan for your specific goals, creates a shopping list out of your chosen recipes and you can send the list off to the stores website (like Kroger) to make everything easier, you can put your own recipes in, it even has a meal prep mode, you can log what you eat from your meal plan, log weight, it tells you how much weight you should lose or gain from the meal plan! I can say more about this app, but it would take too long. It’s amazing! The developers have really thought of almost everything you need for meal planning! I only have two small suggestions. When I add in a manual recipe, I would like to add a picture of that recipe for myself. It makes me excited to cook visually when I can see it. Second, I would like to add drink options to be calculated into the meal plan, because I send my grocery list off from Intent, and I sometimes forget to add the drinks. Plus it would be nice to see how the drinks I drink feature into the meal plan!

Great App if you struggle with meal planning
i love this app so much. as a college student, i don’t have a lot of time or money to spend thinking about food. with this app, i can choose how many times a week i want to has leftovers (which saves me time and money!) and i never have to worry about what i’m going to eat that week. the grocery list is such a life send because i usually never stick to it but this helps so much! you can even choose if you want to lose or gain weight, any allergies or dislikes, and even if you’re on a special diet (keto, pescatarian, etc). one thing i appreciate is how great the basic plan is (if you don’t wanna spend money), without sacrifice the great things about this app. if you choose to get a premium account, you can see your macros, premium recipes and more! i also like how you can input your own recipes and arrange your meal schedule. it also reminds you when to go grocery shopping! love this app and i cant wait to see what more comes. without this app i would be eating pasta every night!

So far I have no complaints and couldn’t even make one even if I wanted too. I struggled for awhile trying to loose weight/meal prep./ cook healthy all while trying to eat nutritious. You can’t go wrong with this app. It helps you figure what to eat with variety. I can eat different meal and do leftovers in case I’m being lazy lol. It also helped with seasoning which another issue I have, I tend to over-season or use wayyy too much oil/butters/Pam sprays in my meal and this fixes that. They also have a variety of meal plans from flexitarian, vegetarian, keto; even helps if you have allergens and reminds you in case you click on one of your allergens. Including a grocery list they make and it doesn’t pressure you too pick a specific brand. You can pick the one your comfortable with. Also the questions are very specific and truly help with figuring out what’s best for you. I could write forever on how I feel, don’t let me be the only one enjoying this app try it out I would rate it 10/10 👍🏾

Great lay out
So, I’m 14 and I cook for my family, my moms getting older and my brother can’t cook. One of my problems is knowing what to cook, this app really helped with that. It’s got easy to follow recipes from many different regions, awesome mechanics and a wonderful layout! It looks clean and refreshing and the recipes are set it in a really cool way, instead of having to scroll up to the top of the page for recipe amounts it’s listed right under the directions, which is nice. I also really like the sides feature, instead of having to pick sides yourself it has a wide selections of sides and you can pick your own quantities of the side, but if you don’t like the side it picked for you you can go in and change it, which is very easy to do. I also really enjoy the grocery list feature, while I don’t use the in-app grocery list I transfer the items that I don’t have in stock to my own grocery list. All-in-all it’s an easy to use app that I would recommend to anyone.

Best app for meal prepping with a family.
Honestly I have used soooo many meal prepping apps. Ones you pay for and free ones all kinds. I have 4 kids and a husband and we all have very different preferences, allergies, and needs. This is the only app I have found that takes everyone into account EVEN MY TODDLER! Like wow I was pretty amazed. You can track your macros, log your foods, follow what you cooked as a full plan or mix and match like I do. And it puts it all in a nice convenient grocery list that is shareable. Like actually shareable not just hey you have to download the app too or a mass list you have to decipher. I can send the list to my husband to shop for me. I only had one (negative) thing to say if you can even really call it that and one of the co-founders who runs the app messaged me back immediately to help me fix it. They really have thought of everything. If you have a busy life and can’t go by a strict plan or a big family whatever I HIGHLY suggest this app.

Meal Planning Made So Easy!
Wow! I've been using this app for a few weeks and I already can't say enough good things about it. Intent has helped me graduate from a boy to a man! But seriously... A few weeks ago "cooking" involved only frozen food and a microwave. Now I'm buying most of my food from the produce section and am using the whole kitchen to cook easy-to-make, fun, delicious, and healthy meals. If you've also been struggling with learning how to eat like an adult, give Intent a try. Intent doesn't teach you how to cook. It makes it ridiculously simple to figure out what to make, what to buy every week, and when to cook it. This takes on the hardest parts of meal planning and makes it easy. You answer some questions, review some suggestions, and voila! It creates your meal plan and your grocery list for you. All for free! One of the best parts is that there's no pressure with Intent. You can easily swap meals and readjust the plan throughout the week without feeling guilty.

I love this app. I’ve always struggled with food so this helps me get my eating on a schedule. I love how easy it is to customize each meal and of course, my favorite part, the fact that I can send my grocery list straight to my Walmart cart and just go pick it up. That makes my life so much easier. As with all apps I find that there are a few things that would make it better. I wish there was an option to add toppings. So say for a baked potato it only has salt and pepper on it but I want to add a sprinkle of cheese or sour cream I can’t accurately reflect those calories on the app. I also think it would be nice if there was an option to curate recipes based off of leftover ingredients from the week before. I end up with things I don’t usually eat, such as leeks, and they end up not being used after the one meal I got them for. Overall I love this app and I think it’s the best thing ever for meal prepping and eating schedules.

One Year Review
I’ve been using Intent for over a year and can say that it does make figuring out what to cook for the week much easier. However, I used to pay about $70-$80 a week on groceries for just myself. Then I started paying $90-$110 a week after using intent. You can save a lot of money if you already have a good collection of spices but if not then, remember that you will will have to build up your collection $$$!. That’s what happed to me. Food tastes great most of the time. I initially set my caloric intake to something like 2200/ray but found that the app over compensates so now I’m setting it to 1900 and that is better for my meal sizes and wallet too. Over all I would recommend using this app to my friends as a tool to help with meal planning but don’t expect to loose a bunch of weight because you will soon become exhausted measuring every little 1/8th of a teaspoon of spices and oils per meal.

Overall Decent
Overall it’s a pretty good app. As far as the intention behind customizing goes the heart is in the right place. This app has great ideas! It just needs some minor updates- like as far as actually customizing your macros. It shows what your macros are but it’s always quite a bit higher in fat than I would like… which you can add in your own meals from the internet and that would fix that, but it would be nice to be able to edit the recipe inside the app and still be able to come back with accurate macros. I feel like if they either gave a section where we could add the carb/fat/protein ourselves like if we calculate it first in MyFitnessPal or if they separated recipes by even which recipes are higher in which macros. Also I sometimes find the grocery list a little unrealistic like calling for 50 sweet potatoes because where I live you can’t buy a bag of sweet potatoes so it would look really goofy to go check out 50 some individual potatoes. Otherwise this app is everything I could ever want it to be.

Was excited for this until I started using it
The idea of this app is really great but the execution was rather poor, IMO (I work in software). I am a pretty experienced cook, but get bored with the same meals over and over again. We also end up wasting a lot of food. I thought this might be a good way to change things up and prevent waste. I selected clean eating. I liked that it would let me filter out some ingredients. It took me a while to set everything up and then when I went to actually plan the meals I was seriously disappointed in the lack of choice and rather boring choices. I had to work really hard to get a plan for the week that sounded exciting, but was also healthy. I don’t really think bread, pasta, and rolls are clean eating. When you pick something like pesto it doesn’t give the recipe for pesto. It assumes that you have bought it premade…yuck. It also forces you to sign up for a subscription before you can check the app out. I ended up canceling it right away. I think it needs a lot of work before it would be helpful to me and my family.

Wow 😱 just wow!
I have actually had this app for only a couple minutes and I’m. In. LOVE! I have to admit, I had my doubts while going through the beginning questionnaire, because every app like this that had looked promising, required a subscription right after answering the questions. Well guess what? This didn’t! It gives the option to subscribe (of course) but you can have this app without a subscription! And the free version is all I need! The free version offers weekly meal plans that are tailored to you! There are some recipes that are for premium members, but not enough to make it impossibly to have diversity in the meal plans. The grocery list is so helpful as well! I’m moving out on my own soon, and need to save as much money as I can. Intent offers the option to have their meal plans not require costly trips to the store! So far, this is a 10/10 app!

Helps me with new dietary changes
I really like this app. I recently found out I have type 2 diabetes, so I came across this app, experienced the free trial and paid for the year just to access all the recipes and the recipes look so tasty! The pros for me, 1. You can set up recipes per various dietary approaches 2. Adjusts recipes to allergens 3. Adjust macro and calorie targets 4. Adjust the servings of recipes 5. Provides a grocery list 6. You can leave notes on the recipe which I think is really cool. The cons for me: 1. The recipes - there are certain ingredients that need to specify measurements or more detail in the cooking process 2. I would like to see swap outs, e.g. recipe calls for 1 cauliflower head shaved into rice, I would like to see a replacement to make it easier for the busy cook, such as buy a bag of cauliflower rice and measure 2 cups for the recipe, per say and 3. I would really like to see other members reviews and cooking tips next to the star rating.

Love it so far
I’ve only been using the app a couple of weeks, but so far I have enjoyed all of the recipes that have been suggested. I’m still sorting out how many meals to plan for in a week and how to handle left overs, but that’s a matter of me being realistic about how much I actually cook/prepare in a “normal” week. The grocery list feature makes shopping incredibly easy. The recipes have been tasty and easy to prepare with ingredients that are easy to find. There are so many meal planning options to choose from that anyone should be able to find a plan that works for them. The ability to adjust quantities and likes/dislikes for other members of one’s household makes this so easy to incorporate into family meal planning. This app has reduced my meal planning burnout 100%, and that alone is worth the subscription I opted to pay.

Makes planning easy but recipes lack flavor
I like how simple it is to create a meal plan, especially being able to customize each meal with specific servings based on who is eating. Lunches are usually only 2 of us but dinners are sometimes 2 or 3, same with breakfast. The app lets you edit each individually to who is eating and swap out a recipe if it is not appealing. It also so helpful that it lists the portion sizes for each individual person so we are all staying at our calorie count. So far though we have only enjoyed about half the recipes we have tried. Most are bland and lack full flavor and several are difficult recipes because the ingredients are listed out of order or steps don’t make sense. I consider myself an experienced home chef and found I was spending time each day having to make guesses and adjustments to have the recipe work out. Not sure if we will keep using it but we are going to try for a few more weeks and see how it goes.

Best Meal Planner Available (Lots of Flexibility and Excellent Grocery List Feature)
I’ve been looking for a meal planner that lets me import recipes, has a recipe bank (and allows users to modify the recipes), and uses the ingredients to create a shopping list. After trying literally 12 different apps, I was finally fortunate enough to find this one. Its ability to help you plan your week, set the number of meals you want to track per day, and grocery list generator all make this app stand apart from its competition. I had one minor issue with a recipe I tried to import and reached out to the developer through the app. They had taken care of the issue with a few hours. They are very responsive and invested in having the best product out there. I tried the app for a few days (to make sure it really worked for me) and then very happily subscribed.

Manages all the logistics for healthier eating
I'm loving this app. So much. I've been using similar apps for over a decade now and this is my favorite user-experience so far. The food preferences, inclusion of my family/household, recipes and grocery list linked to shopping/delivery apps!) - I just love it. I'm very busy and just don't have the time to do things right. (Shopping, prep, tracking healthy choices - it's a LOT and why so many of us lead unhealthy lives.) This app has all the right features to set us up for success. Tomorrow starts my first week - had the groceries delivered earlier today. I'm very excited and MOTIVATED to follow through. The visual aspect of the user interface in this app is motivating. The meal pics are great. So many little bells and whistles. I hope to purchase a lifetime access. Just testing it out but our future relationship looks fantastic!

Life changer!!
For me this app has everything that I’ve been looking for in meal planning. I’ve done weight watchers and even looked into getting a diet coach and buying their programs but nothing ever had what I was looking for which was simplicity and foods that not only I can eat but my family as well. All the meals have been customized to the info I entered and the food I already normally have and are in my budget. The best part is the shopping list that’s created for me on the day I chose to grocery shop. The list is organized and grouped perfect which made the chore I hate the most(grocery shopping) super easy. I love that I was able to add my family members and the portions include them as well! Overall super happy and impressed! I’ve been telling everyone about it and hopefully it helps you as much as it’s helped me!

Dieting simplicity in your hands
This app has been a phenomenal so far! If I had found this app last year when I tried Keto I probably would have be successful in my diet. Usage of this app is super simple, I told it what diet I wanted to do, what foods I like, allergies if you had any and it creates a complete meal plan week by week, exactly how much to eat, what to eat with all kinds of different meals, as well as a complete weekly grocery list. It’s literally took all the complication out of dieting and just tells you what to do. Exactly how to prep and cook the meals. It’s so easy. And by telling you exactly what and how much to buy each week completely cuts out food waste as long as you cook the amount it says and eat what your supposed to eat each meal. So far everything that I have tried has tasted great and I look forward to meal times again.

I love it
You know how working out is so hard to get started because half of the time, you’re figuring out what exercises to do? Then you get an exercise plan to follow and it’s so much more less daunting? That’s what this app does for your meals. No more last minute fast food because figuring out dinner is too much work. I tried this app to help me avoid the five-days-in-a-row lunch meal prep routine that I was not enjoying (read “not sticking to”). But I also needed meals that weren’t exhausting to make in the middle of the week either. This app has that. It also has more complex meals for dinner that my husband and I have loved so far. One of my favorite features is the grocery list. You pick all of your meals for the week and it combines all the ingredients into one grocery list, so no more flipping back and forth between recipes in the grocery store.

Food allergy friendly!
If you have food allergies and fitness goals - this app is for you! I figured this would be a download and delete app - I was wrong! Adding my food allergens, selecting other food preferences (and my spouse), and cuisine types was easy. I figured grocery shopping and the recipes would be a barrier after that easy step. Wrong again. I used the link to Instacart with Whole Foods and the food matching to SAFE (free of my allergens) food was incredible. Foods I normally wouldn’t even bother looking at because I assumed they would contain my allergens, and they still met the nutritional profile of the recipe. We have made four recipes this week - all have been easy and delicious. We look forward to meal prepping and cooking, again! Can’t wait to get back on track with healthy eating and our fitness goals.

You won’t be disappointed!
This app is amazing! I’ve tried Weight Watchers, Noom, MyFitnessPal and many others, but they all lacked what this app has. It allows you to pick a calorie goal and then it creates a weekly meal plan for you, but the best part is that it’s completely customizable. You pick your food preferences, your likes and dislikes, and it will make a weekly plan. Then you can swap around meals and add or delete meals and snacks as you wish. You can choose to meal prep ahead of time if you wish, and if and when you have leftovers. You can also customize it so certain days or certain meals you make enough for family members, too. This is so much more than a diet app…it’s truly a lifestyle app. And my eating habits have significantly improved now that I have a meal plan I look forward to eating everyday!

Absolutely love this app!
I started using intent less than a week ago and I haven’t been able to stop using it! I’ve struggled to gain weight for 5 years now even after having a baby I went right back to being my original weight. My goal is to gain around 20 pounds. I know I don’t eat nearly enough to have the calories needed to help with my weight gain but with intent it allows me to set an actual goal in mind and to find recipes that show the calories and plan out meals for every part of the day. I’m one to over grocery shop and being able to pick a recipe and the app set up a grocery list for you with exactly the amount of food you need it’s a game changer! & it allows you to pick a budget too, I believe it will help me actually stay on track of my weight gaining journey!

The App I Always Needed
Absolutely love everything about this app. I have always struggled with meal planning, consistently eating healthy, and eating the right macro nutrients. This app solved all of those problems and made groceries more affordable with less food waste. I lost 8 lbs in one month thanks to this app and now i’m only another 8 lbs to my target and it actually feels achievable. I love that it has snacks and tells me extra calories if I want to pick up an extra snack or have some candy. The meals are absolutely delicious and have a lot of options for those who don’t eat meat, fish, dairy, eggs, or other allergies. I also love the option to change the amount of people eating at a meal and how many times you want to have leftovers. Will forever be using this app because it works, is delicious, and so easy to use.

I’m obsessed with this app. Love it. The only complaints I have are that the pics don’t always match the recipe. For instance, a pic will have a tortilla or oats but the recipe won’t have those things. I wish we had the option to edit the pic and use our own. Also, I’ll save a recipe, but sometimes when I look at it to make it, the quantities have changed. Yes, I’m making it for me, but I can’t make a cake with only 2 tablespoons of flour when it originally calls for 2 cups. No matter how I change to # of people etc, it doesn’t fix the problem. So far I’ve only noticed this on a couple of recipes. A big plus that I love, I can save my favorite recipes from websites. All access through app. Still love it. Added: I wish that there were an option to remove certain suggested recipes if I don’t want to use them after I’ve tried them.

Awesome App, incredible for your Health
Intent is a fantastic app that has significantly improved my meal planning and overall health. Its ability to craft delicious meals while targeting precise macro and micro nutritional needs is exceptional. The wide variety of inclusive diet types ensures there’s something for everyone, making meal planning a breeze. As someone with a recent degree in computer science and working as a MERN stack developer, I truly appreciate the thoughtfulness and design of this app. However, there’s one minor flaw I’d like to point out. The current data structure assigns a single integer value to each meal rating. This can be limiting, especially for those of us who meal prep. For example, a meal might taste fantastic when freshly made but less so the next day. The app, however, only allows for a single star rating based on the latest value, which doesn’t accurately reflect the meal’s quality over time. Incorporating an average rating or even a feature that tracks the rate of decline in meal quality over time would be a smart enhancement. Despite this, Intent remains a five-star app in my book. Its benefits far outweigh this small issue, and I look forward to seeing how it evolves in the future. Keep up the great work!

So Grateful
I know this sounds dramatic but I cried when I found this app. I have struggled with my health and with an eating disorder and I need to plan healthier meals but the more time I spend trying to plan the meal, the more stressed I get and I end up not eating. This app takes every problem I have with meal planning(like calculating calories and macros, finding vegetarian recipes, trying to figure out a grocery list and portions) and solves them all in one app. I was so scared they would waste my time with the quiz just to ask for money but there are so many features available for free. I am considering getting the premium version in the near future because I do want to add my own recipes to the app and unlock the bonus recipes too. This app can quite literally change my life and I am so happy I found it.

Removes the Busy Work!
I love this app. The recipes are sometimes hit or miss—but the majority of them are very good, and still quite healthy without being all tofu or lettuce. You can pick which ingredients you don’t like, and it will filter them out. You can also pick which diet you want, and it will give you recipes to pick from that fit that. They generate a grocery list for you. It’s not foolproof—definitely check the list over to make sure there isn’t any errors. However, most of the quantities have been correct, and it takes me less than 30 minutes to plan meals. My husband loves the fact that I’ve been able to cook for everyone without issue, and I love trying new foods! The extra money per month is worth it, especially for the convenience.

Love this app!
We’ve been using this app for about a month now and I’m so thankful I came across it! My husband and I were getting tired of the same meals we were making week to week. I didn’t even have an appetite to eat because I was tired of our same meals. I came across an ad for this app and decided to try it. The meals are tailored to our specific goals/preferences. The meals are so delicious, easy, and straightforward to make. I like that there is an option to eat leftovers. We are wasting less food now. I enjoy that it makes a grocery list for me for me and I don’t have to write each item down. I just check it off at the grocery store. I now look forward to eating and making meals for us! I’ve been telling everyone I know about this app! I highly recommend!

Love it!
I’ve used this app for a week now and I love it! You take a quiz that finds the right meal plan for you based on your lifestyle and preferences. I tried the premium version for free for a week and I’m honestly thinking about paying for it. The meal plan makes it super easy as it plans out your week for you and the meals are easy, tasty, and quick to make. If you decide you don’t really feel like eating something you chose for your meal plan, the app allows you to switch it - which I love! As far as the price goes for the premium version, I would say it’s reasonable. For a year subscription, it costs around the same as it would if my husband and I ate out somewhere. I would definitely give it a try if you’re like me and get stumped on what to make throughout the week!

Well thought out & easy to use
I’ve tried a lot of “meal planner” apps but they were difficult to navigate and had way to many b.s. steps. This one is great. It’s easy to follow, give you the complete meals, and the recipes are delicious. I can edit them!! Like you can change out and add sides and portion size. This is a great app if you don’t know what to eat but know how to cook but want to go grocery shopping but don’t know where to start. They did a great job with the starter selection of recipes. I’m waiting for a couple more features before I buy the “pro” version but will —happily— pay to save an hour of “I don’t know do you want to eat” during my weekends. The customer support is totally awesome as well, they genuinely listen to their users comments. Overall try it out. I liked it.

Includes my son-Amazing
I have never had a good diet, I have been really trying to eat better now that I’m 31. So I have been mindful of the items I buy, incorporating small changes so I don’t feel overwhelmed and quit. So now that I have been doing that I was ready to push harder with the eating habits, but I had a big concern…my son. He is in sports, and needs more fuel that I do. In my head I could not plan for the both of us and know how much I need to lose weight compared to how much he needs to keep him gaining weight/healthy weight. With this app it portions it’s for the both of us. So for example I need a 1/2 cup of peas while he needs 2 cups. This is great and you guys really addressed all concerns and excuses anyone could have as to why they can’t eat healthy. You gave me quick meals that I can make, cheap prices that I can afford ( my rent is $560 a month and I struggle so let that be the idea of how much I can afford). And items that I can find in a regular grocery store. (I don’t have a Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods conveniently located by me). Great job, it’s really appreciated the time and effort put into this app. You made it realistic, affordable and promising. Seriously this is great! 😊

A game changer!!!
I have been a healthy eater for many years but last year I found myself want and eating a lot of sugary foods. And trying all of the new “healthy” snacks is a fun past time whenever a new health brand has a new snack. I love it! Buuuttt… this has led me to being a not so healthy eater and I did gain like 7 lbs since last summer. Some is muscle yes but I know the rest is not and I’d like to get back in shape. I kept seeing ads for Intent on Instagram so I decided to check it out and I was not disappointed! I realized the reason I have t been able to “stay on track “ with my meal plans before is because I was trying to force food that I didn’t crave or want. Intent has the best and simplest foods that I actually want! I can eat sandwiches and pasta and still reach my goals🥰. I love this app.

This App Makes My Macros So Easy!
Let’s be honest here. I was a person who would start to focus on macros, do great for a few days, get confused because I have a son who’s in the “hot dog and pizza” phase of life. It helps me find new recipes that I wouldn’t even attempt to try because it’s too wild or I have to scroll through some woman’s life story to get there. This app not only helps me stay aligned with my macros but shows me new recipes, snack ideas and creates a grocery list. Game changer. You can even order your groceries if you want! Even my boyfriend says he loves this app. If I’m running late from work, I can send him the recipe so he can get started. My son can look and recipes to see what exactly goes into it. It helps him learn there’s so much more to food than chicken nuggets. Lol.

Loving it!
I did the free trial and I’m hooked! This app is packed with so many ways to be used. I’m using it to eat healthier but I always struggle with finding different or new healthy meals to cook. The app takes all of the goes work out of an already challenging task. It took into account what I want to accomplish, what foods I like and don’t like, and even composed a grocery list for me that I can send directly to my cart ( I use Walmart delivery but there are multiple stores you can use to add your grocery list to your cart while also being able to modify before purchasing). I have also been pleasantly surprised at how tasty the recipes are! So worth tye affordable price and I’m not rich! lol. I’m pretty sure I could go on and on because I love it so much!

Needs Substitutions
This is a review done the weekend I am starting my very first meal plan. So far, I like the concept and overall features this app offers. I do have to say that my biggest issue with the app (thus far) is lack for ingredient substitutions. As for improvements to existing features, well at the top of my head I see the app can expand their “shopping” options 9perhaps add Target/Shipt). Maybe add some connectivity with other apps/services so we don't have to go back & forth between apps to log things like workouts from apple fitness, or perhaps it can log meals from apps like Hello Fresh, what about dining out? I would like to see the option to add meals from different sources for days when we go out of our meal plan. Finally, I did notice what I think might be a bug when sending to the Health app. I noticed info. on the Health app is timed outside my time zone.

Awesome App
I think the app is great, the recipes have been great (after a little preference tweaking) and the portion sizes match to exactly what I wanted. The only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is that I wish I could import the meals into Cronometer and not just myfitnesspal. I’m not a fan of myfitnesspal and Cronometer is a much more informative service/tool for creating and maintaining a high quality diet, but that might boil down to personal preference. If they ever added a way to import to Cronometer, directly or indirectly, I would change my rating to 5 stars. I did purchase an annual subscription for intent and will continue to use it. Side note: I did contact their service team during my first meal plan because of an issue I had. Their assistance was quicker than most and the person who contacted me was very helpful.

This is my FAVORITE app!
I have been using this app for 4 months now, and I LOVE it. Grocery shopping is no longer an anxiety filled 45 minute ordeal. I am in and out with the shopping list. I am able to try and do more with cooking. The recipes are extremely simple. Hello Fresh and like brands boast about simplicity, but you spend half an hour cutting and prepping veggies… I spend about half an hour, maybe more making the most delicious meals with these recipes. I only use it for dinner to cook for my husband and I because, I am a broken record when it comes to cooking. My favorites are the chicken piccata and the spicy pork tenderloin. I have grown a new love for cooking, and now I am able to change and make my own meals with the recipes. I recommend 10/10.

LOVE this app
This food tracking app is awesome. It starts by asking you what your weight and then goal weight, what type of diet/restrictions you may have and any dislikes for food. Then, it gives you the option for how many meals it wants to plan for you, for how many people, and wherever or not you want leftovers. From that, it sets a calorie goal for you and automatically creates recipes. All of this is awesome, but I haven’t even gotten to the best part. Once it picks your recipes for the week based on your preferences, IT AUTOMATICALLY MAKES AN INTERACTIVE GROCERY LIST THAT YOU CAN CHECK OFF AND MODIFY SERVINGS BASED ON WHAT YOU ALREADY HAVE AT HOME. This is, by far, my favorite feature. It makes it so easy to utilize this app. It’s also very affordable. I would recommend this app to anyone and everyone!!

I love it!
I love the fact that it gives you the option to write/make your own recipes and input recipes from online sources so that you aren’t just stuck to the ones they provide and get to have easier access to any recipes all in one place. Its especially helpful if you make things your own way, or use a store bought product they don’t have in the app, such as a specific brand of a snack. It’s also very easy to use and has many lovely choices of food options and you can easily switch what you want to eat instead of what they pick for you, and all the options look good! They also ask about what you have allergies to and dislike to recommend you even better dishes

My favorite meal planning app by far
I’ve only had this app for a week (free trial) and I must say that this app has been the best meal-planning app I’ve used so far. There’s a plethora of recipes to choose from that’s curated for your goals surrounding food AND if you add people with different settings, it’ll accommodate them in the recipe as well (saying they get extra servings if they need more calories). My ONLY critique is that the curated recipes maybe be organized into like a main Dish, Snacks, desserts, etc so that I can conveniently look at certain recipes to favorite and eventually try. Aside from this, I’ve found nothing wrong with the functionality nor quality of this app. Will definitely be paying for that yearly subscription!

Good, but not always tasty
I love this app primarily for help with meal planning and grocery shopping, because as someone on the AuDHD spectrum that is an insurmountable task most days and I was finding myself not eating several days just because I had no idea what to eat. I like that the app provides an easy answer. It gives me healthy suggestions and tells me what I need to make them. The only drawback in my opinion is that the recipes are often not very tasty. I feel like you have to have good cooking sense to add your own spin to them, otherwise you end up eating raw chickpeas mixed with a meager amount of olive oil and a copious amount of raw onions, or a roast beef sandwich with enough horseradish to singe your eyebrows. Most of the recipes have good potential, they just need a little seasoning and/or adjustments to ingredient portions.
