Help: Schedule a Meal

Because scheduling meals is the most important and most often used app function, there are many ways to do it. Start by getting familiar with the three main ways:

  1. In the Plan tab, locate the day you’d like to add to and tap the Schedule Meal button at the bottom of that day. The meal drawer will open automatically. Locate the meal you’d like to add and tap to select it. The drawer will close automatically.
  2. In the Plan tab, scroll to the day you’d like to add to. Tap or drag the drawer handle (the horizontal bar at the bottom) to open the meal drawer. Locate the meal you’d like to schedule, tap and hold to pick up the card, and the drawer will automatically move down to get out of the way.
  3. In the Meals tab, locate the meal you’d like to schedule, tap to view it, then select Schedule Meal from the context menu in the top right (note: if the meal is already on your plan, the menu item will be “Schedule Meal Again” to warn you). Select a date in the date picker that appears and tap the Schedule Meal button. The app will move to the Plan tab and scroll to the newly added meal. (This menu option is also available in View/Edit Meal popups throughout the app. After scheduling from a popup, the popup will remain on the screen.)

In all three cases, if you do not see the meal you are looking for, you can scroll to the end of the list and tap “Add Meal” to add it to your meal database.

Reschedule a Meal

To move a planned meal to a different day, locate the plan day you want to remove from, and within that day, the planned meal card you would like to move.

Next, do one of the following:

  1. Select “Change Day” in the context menu (the three dots in the bottom right corner of the card) and choose a new day in the date picker that appears.
  2. Long press the planned meal card until it pops up, then drag it left or right to the desired plan day, then release. (You can also use this method to change the order of the planned meal cards within a plan day if desired.)

Unschedule a Meal

To remove a planned meal, locate the plan day you want to remove from, and within that day, the planned meal card you would like to remove.

Next, do one of the following:

  1. Select “Remove from Plan” in the context menu (the three dots in the bottom right corner of the card).
  2. Long press the planned meal card until it pops up, then drag it downward until the day shrinks down, then release.
