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team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.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

  • You can choose lean ground beef or switch to ground turkey or ground bison if you prefer less fatty meat.

  • Before you pass up garlic because you don't want the bad breath that comes with it, keep in mind that the compounds that cause garlic breath also offer a lot of health benefits. Garlic has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. If you really want to get the most health benefits out of your garlic, choose Spanish garlic, which contains the most allicin (one of garlic's most beneficial compounds).

  • If you are concerned about BPA-linings in canned products, look for tomato products packaged in glass, as acidic foods like tomatoes are more likely to leach BPA from the lining. You might also look for low-sodium versions or the label "no salt added" to cut down on unnecessary sodium.

  • If you prefer lean meat but want to switch it up, try ground turkey, pork, or even bison!

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).

  • If you find meat (especially grassfed and/or organic meat!) on sale, stock up and freeze it. Ground meat will stay good 3-4 months, while steaks, chops, etc., will be fine for at least 4 months.

  • The price of ground beef is going up. Beans and lentils, on the other hand, are both cheap and filling. Depending on the recipe, you might be able to add beans or lentils to stretch out your beef.

Cooking Tips

  • If parmesan plays a big role in the flavor of your dish (or if you're a serious foodie or serious about avoiding additivies) it might be worth your time to track down "true" parmesan, Parmigiano Reggiano.

  • Make sure you cook ground meat thoroughly. Grinding meat creates a lot of surface area that bacteria can grow on, so eating undercooked ground meat poses a real health risk.

  • When buying celery, make sure the stalks feel firm and the leaves look fresh. Store in your refrigerator's crisper for up to two weeks.

  • Carrots can be stored in the fridge for 2 to 3 weeks. The starch in the carrots will turn to sugar over time, but this is not a problem, they'll just taste sweeter. The academy lesson about carrots contains more useful information.

Green Tips

  • Parmesan cheese is traditionally made using rennet, an animal-derived enzyme. For this reason, true parmesan cheese is not suitable for vegetarians. You might be able to find a vegetarian hard cheese to substitute.

  • Choose organic, grassfed beef whenever possible. If you're worried about your grocery budget, try eating a few vegetarian meals so you can afford better meat!

  • Beans freeze well, so don't throw out your leftovers!

  • According to the Environmental Working Group (EWG), celery is one of the worst vegetables in term of pesticide residue. If you're trying to reduce pesticide residue in your diet, be sure to buy organic celery.
