Creating Your Own Tags to Search and Schedule Recipes

Your Real Plans Recipe Box allows you to create your own tags to apply to recipes.  This will help you search for certain types of recipes, group recipes together, and even schedule the types of recipes you want to see in your Meal Planner using our Advanced Filters

Let's say you are on a low-FODMAP diet, for example, and are looking for low-FODMAP recipes to add to your Meal Planner.  As you look through the Recipe Box and find recipes that fit your needs, you can create a "Low-FODMAP" tag so you can easily find those recipes and can also schedule them into your Meal Planner using Advanced Filters. 

You can create a tag for recipes that transport easily for packable lunches, feel-better foods, specific days of a rotation diet, recipes you want to try, or whatever your needs might be.  Here's how:

Open the recipe card you want to tag by clicking on the recipe.  Select "Actions" in the upper right corner and then "Modify". 

Look for "Tags" and click the dropdown.  The top choice will be "Add/Edit My Tags".  (Scroll through the tags to be sure the tag you want is not already listed.)

Click on "Add/Edit My Tags".  Decide the name for your tag, such as Low-FODMAP, and type it in the box.  Click on and then "Save" to create the tag.  Click on "Save" in the upper right corner of the recipe card to apply the new tag to that recipe.

You may need to log out and back in to activate the tag you created.  You can apply your new tag to recipes in our database and to recipes you import, as well.  You can use your new tag to search the Recipe Box for those recipes and to schedule them using Advanced Filters.  To learn how to use our Advanced Filters to schedule recipes by tags, click here
