Next time you head out to the grocery store, rather than walking up and down the aisles aimlessly and ending up spending more money than is necessary, why not get organized ahead of time? The Avocado Meal Planner can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone as a way to plan out all your meals in advance and help you create your grocery list. By doing this you'll be able to stick to the foods you actually need when shopping and you will take away the hassle and frustration of getting home and being faced with the question of "what should you cook."
The Avocado Meal Planner app not only helps to save you money, and hassle while at the grocery store, but it can also help you make healthier choices because you get a chance to plan well-rounded meals instead of making poor decisions based on time limits or ingredient limitations. This app doesn't just let you plan a day or two in advance; you can use it to plan a full month ahead of time. That means your meals are planned, the ingredients are determined, and your grocery list for a whole month is laid out. It literally takes all food questions out of the equation.
The free version of the app offers limited functionality but is definitely enough to give you a feel for it. To unlock the full version you can do so with a $2.99 in-app purchase. Users have given the app 3.5 out of five stars, so it seems as though they are still looking for a few additional features.
What This App Isn’t
I think it’s really important to point out what the Avocado Meal Planner app isn’t. This isn’t an app that provides you with a database of meal ideas and recipes. This is meant to be used with your own existing recipes and go-to dishes this is strictly a planning tool. So now that we've pointed out what the app isn't capable of doing, what about the features it does offer?
As mentioned you're able to plan your meals for a full month and add your recipes to it. Your recipes can even be organized using a color coded system that is customizable. You can view the calorie count per serving for your recipes, helping you to make healthy choices, data is synced between your devices, and you can share recipes on Facebook. Your grocery list offers automated quantities, you can scratch things off the list as you buy it, share your list, and more.
