Our Disclaimer (The serious stuff)

By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research. If you need help planning your diet or determining which foods (and recipes) are safe for you, contact a registered dietitian, allergist, or another medical professional.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Although the body needs salt to survive, most of us get too much. The problem with consuming too much salt (what chemists call "sodium chloride") is actually the sodium part, which is why people concerned about high blood pressure go on low-sodium diets. If you are trying to reduce salt in your diet, you can try salt substitutes like potassium chloride or try to make do with less salt by using more black pepper, herbs, and spices.

  • Important note for those with gluten intolerance: oats are naturally gluten free, but cross contamination with wheat?in the factory or in the field?is a real possibility. To be on the safe side, look for oats and oat flours that say they are gluten free on the box!

  • If you're trying to cut back on sugar, consider replacing some of the sugar in this recipe with a sweetener like Stevia or Splenda. If you're against these kinds of sweeteners, start reducing the amount of real sugar you use until your tastebuds adjust.

  • Studies have shown people who drink full fat milk are thinner than those who drink low-fat or fat-free milk instead. Keep that in mind before you decide to swap. If you want to go dairy free, however, you can replace milk with unsweetened soy milk in most recipes.

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • Store brown sugar in an air-tight container to avoid hardening. If your brown sugar still gets too hard to use, you can use one of these techniques to soften it.

  • There are two types of cinnamon. The more expensive and rarer type is Ceylon cinnamon (considered to be "true cinnamon"). The cinnamon most common in North America is cassia cinnamon. Though the flavor is certainly similar, Ceylon cinnamon is said to be more subtle yet also more complex.

  • If a recipe doesn't specify whether you should use light brown sugar or dark brown sugar, just use whatever you have on hand or prefer. The difference is that dark brown sugar has more molasses and thus a stronger flavor.

Green Tips

  • Apples are at the top of the so-called "dirty dozen" so be sure to buy organic apples (and applesauce, apple juice, etc.) if you are concerned about pesticide residues in your food.

  • To avoid antibiotics, hormones, and other nasties in your milk, choose organic whenever possible. If you can't afford organic, look for milk labeled hormone and antibiotic free. It is often less expensive.
