The Meal Planning Service you’ve been waiting for. Never panic about dinner again.

Sometimes prayers are answered.

There are a lot of things I love about my job, but meal planning isn’t one of them. I used to LONG for a good meal planning service I could trust and refer clients to. But there was always something not quite right about the services I looked into: questionable ingredients, lame recipes, way too much time in the kitchen.

And so, every time a client asked for a meal plan, I took a deep breathe and bit the bullet. I spent hours on these meal plans, and they never turned out quite right. (My apologies to those of you who suffered through them.) Chef James entered my life and they got better, but still… the process was painful.

Until now.

I could not be happier to let you know that I have found an outstanding real food meal planning service by my friend, Emily Bartlett and her husband, Antony at the fabulous Real Plans.

But does this plan fit my diet specifics, you ask? Yes! Check out all the different diets they cover with their meal plans.

[Chef James here] I want to pop in. As many of you know, besides being a private chef, I previously owned a meal delivery service in Southern California. It is impossible to be healthy if you’re eating out all the time. Whether that’s restaurants or the prepared food from grocery stores. It’s all about ingredients and most places cut corners to maximize profit. They use poor quality fat/oils and added sweeteners that keep you from feeling your best.

The number one way to get healthy is to eat home cooked meals. Most people, don’t have the time, the know-how or the patience to be cooking in the kitchen. I get it. That’s why people hire me. Not everyone has the budget for a private chef though. Real Plans is hands down the next best option. The cost is as low as $6 a month if you pay for the subscription service annually. Six dollars!

Sure you still have to cook, but check out the support you get:


  • Personalized weekly meal plans based on your family size, dietary restrictions, and preferred schedule.
  • A detailed shopping list to save you time and money. You can even check off items you already have in the kitchen and easily add items that aren’t part of your meal plan-like toilet paper or pet food.


  • Over 1,600 original recipes that are kitchen-tested, and family-approved by picky eaters and people with a wide range of dietary restrictions.
  • Timeline tool that tells you what you need to do and when you need to do it to have your meals on the table at the day/time you’ve designated.
  • Nutritional Info and Macro Tracking for those that like to keep track of these details.
  • Live Chat Support for any questions that may pop up. I spent time talking to their meal planning specialists and they knew there stuff! Incredibly helpful.
  • Add your own recipes if you want. This is a cool bonus that you can add your recipes or even my Eat Naked recipes to utilize the Real Plan tools like grocery lists, scheduling, etc…

It’s kind of amazing. Your week of meals is completely planned out – just like that! You will never need to wonder what’s for dinner again. Plus, the Real Plans app can be on your pad, phone and computer with features to help you plan faster, shop more easily, and deal with real-life eating restrictions.

Suddenly cooking from home is no longer a chore. All you do is play your favorite music, and follow their tried and true recipes. Your home will be filled with lovely scents and your hunger satiated.

Did I mention it’s wildly affordable, as low as $6 a month? I know. Ridiculous. The time you save having to think this stuff through is worth far more than that measly price tag.

If you’re not meal planning, then you’re probably struggling to eat healthy, spending way more money on food than is necessary and contributing to your daily decision fatigue.

Real Plans is the tool that will solve these problems. It has for us and we believe it will for you as well.

Oh, and don’t take our word for it. Try the service for FREE for up to 14 days and see for yourself what we’re talking about.

You’ll get the support you’ve been needing in the kitchen. If you’re not sold, simply cancel before the end of the trial and you won’t be charged.

We want you eating healthy and feeling great in your body. Real Plans is hands down one of the best tools to support you.
