Add Ingredients and Notes to your Planner

  1. Click on a mealtime in your Planner (or the + in the upper right of the mealtime).
  2. The Ingredient and Note dialog will appear.
  3. Add either an Ingredient or Note.
  4. Select the corresponding Add button. 
    • Under Notes, there's the option to add the Note as a Prep Note to a planned recipe, this will attach this Prep Note to the recipe for future planning. 

Ingredients look like recipes on your planner, but they are distinguished by being italicized

  • Ingredients appear on both the calendar and your shopping list.
  • This is useful for items that you may have daily like "Cereal" or “Oatmeal” and you want them to appear on your shopping list to make sure they are stocked.

Notes appear gray on the calendar, and are indicated in italics.

  • Notes are only added to the calendar and do not affect your shopping list.
  • This is useful for occasions that are irregular to your meal plan such as "Eating dinner at the Smith's House" or “Leftovers”. These are events that you want to note in your menu plan, but not your shopping list.
