The latest update to the eMeals iOS app allows you to easily compile your own week of meals using recipes from more than one eMeals meal plan. You can add meals from different plans to the same meal plan for the week! There are two ways you can go about deleting unwanted recipes from your plan, leaving only the recipes you want.
Add All The Recipes in a Week, Then Swipe to Delete
Navigate to your meal plan, and click on the desired week.
In the top right corner, select the plus icon to add all meals to your My Plan.
Click on the My Plan button on the bottom of the screen, and you’ll see the week’s meals listed in your My Plan. Simply swipe right to left over the recipe title to delete any meals you don’t want for the week.
Add Meals Individually, Saving Only The Ones You Want
To pick and choose meals individually to build your My Plan, rather than adding all meals at once, follow these instructions.
Navigate to your meal plan and week of meals.
Click on the specific meal you want to add.
In the bottom right corner, select the plus icon to add the recipe to your My Plan. The recipe will be added automatically and bounce you back to the Meal Plan page. Repeat as needed to add all the meals you want from any of your plans.
View all of the plans you have added on the My Plan screen.
A Note About Duplicate Ingredients on Shopping Lists
Whether you have two dinner plans, a dinner and lunch plan or a dinner and breakfast plan, the new My Plan feature lets you sync all of your meal plans into one, easy-to-use shopping list.
Because you’ll be pulling in ingredients from separate plans, you may have duplicate entries of like ingredients. For example, when the same ingredient (ex. 1/2 cup shredded cheese) appears in more than one meal plan, it will not be combined on the final grocery list (i.e. 1/2 cup shredded cheese will appear twice, not as 1 cup shredded cheese). If you’d like to combine these ingredients into one amount (totally up to you!), here’s how to go about it:
Click on the ingredient and edit the amount (in our example below, change 3 cloves garlic to 6 cloves garlic).
Then simply delete the duplicate ingredient entry.
