When you clip a recipe using the Recipe Clipper you'll see a message at the top of the import window to let you know the recipe is only a draft and not yet saved. It's important to press the Save Recipe button, after importing to save the recipe to your Recipe Book. 

If you forget to press Save, these un-saved recipes will show up as Drafts in your Plan to Eat recipe book. They will stay in this section for 7 days and you have the opportunity to save them to your Recipe Book during that time.

View your Draft Recipes

The drafts section is located at the top of your recipe book, next to the number of recipes you have saved. 

  1. Click on the Drafts link.
  2. In the Draft screen you’ll see a yellow Unsaved tag in the upper left of the recipe card.

To finish saving these recipes

  • Simply click on the Save button on the lower left of the recipe card and your draft recipe will be saved to your recipe book.


If you accidentally import a recipe and don't want to add it to your recipe book, you can either select the Remove button on the lower right of the recipe card. Or if you take no action on your draft recipes, they will be automatically removed from your Plan to Eat account one week after they were imported.
