Excluding food groups and ingredients on our new mobile app is easier than ever!
To begin, simply click on the gear icon to navigate to Settings. Then go to "Customize Meal Plan and Diet". (Whole30 subscribers will click on Whole30 Reset.)
Customize your meal plan - select "Customize my plan" to get started:
Select your Diet Type - We have numerous pre-programmed diet types that you can follow and further customize. For a brief description of each diet type, please click here.
From the drop-down menu provided, select the diet type you would like your Meal Planner to follow.
Set up your Dietary Exclusions - Our Meal Planner will let you specify any food group you’d rather avoid. Once excluded, they won’t show up again in your Meal Planner (unless you add them back in at another time). Deselect any food group you'd like to exclude. Once you've done this, click "Continue".
Once you hit "Continue", you'll be asked to confirm your food group update.
You can do the same for any particular ingredient you'd like to exclude from your Meal Planner. To exclude a new ingredient, type the ingredient name into the search field and hit "Search". Select all of the matching ingredients that you’d like to exclude and click "Next". You will now see those ingredients in your "Exclude" column.
Once you have selected an ingredient to exclude, you will have the choice to exclude other similar ingredients or only that one ingredient.
Once you have confirmed your selections, you can hit "Confirm exclusions".
**Please keep in mind that applying these changes will repopulate your meal planner.**
Lastly, choose whether to update your entire Meal Plan or to keep your current week as-is and update only your future plans. Keeping your current week is great if you've already done your grocery shopping or spent time creating your perfect week!
