How to use Advanced Settings to fine tune your Meal Planner and Recipe Box

If you are using the website, you will follow the steps below to change your Advanced Settings. If you are using the mobile app, please click here.

Access your Advanced Settings

To access your Advanced Settings on the website,

  • Click on Settings
  • Click on My Meal Plan or Whole30 Meal Plan if you have Whole30 settings
  • Select Advanced Settings from the menu on the left side of the page



Under Advanced Settings, you can:

  • Choose the day that you want your weekly meal plan to start
    • We suggest the day AFTER you grocery shop
    • Changing the start day of the week can change your entire meal plan, so if you have already shopped for the week, be sure to save or print your current plan
  • Set your preferred recipe measurement (US or metric)
  • Decide if you only want seasonal recipes
    • For example, recipes with summer vegetables would be scheduled during the summer only
  • Turn on the Empty day notes fields in the meal planner
    • This function will give you clickable shortcuts to either add a note or a recipe quickly to a blank meal slot
  • Turn on the Send weekly emails to have your plan emailed to you each week
    • The Meal Planner is designed to create meal plans when you access the system, so you will need to log in periodically to review the meal plans that are generated for you.
  • Toggle your Whole30 functions on and off
    • This option is only visible if you have a Whole30 subscription
  • Toggle Macro Tracker functions on and off
    • This option is only visible if you have a Macro Tracker subscription
    • Macro Tracker is not available with the Whole30 diet type
  • Toggle the Wellness Mama Cookbook functions off if you do not have a copy of her cookbook

    • Sous vide
