I have had SO many people over the last few years ask about meal planning. And you know what? I don’t plan much because I’m constantly making you guys new recipes so I have food in my house on a regular basis. My fridge is usually stocked with some sort of new recipe or at least some sort of food to throw together. But I don’t have the normal 9-5 job or kids or baseball practice or business school classes at night. You guys do! So me telling you to cook this or that in some order isn’t going to conform to each and everyone one of you and your different lifestyles.

But luckily, that day has finally changed. I now have an absolutely awesome meal planning tool for you guys. Thanks to fabulously creative people Antony and Emily, you now have one of the most comprehensive and powerful meal planning services right at your fingertips. Real Plans makes planning your weeknight dinners, quick morning meals and even afternoon snacks easier than ever. No more guessing on how to make the whole family happy because Real Plans makes it easier than ever.

Husband doesn’t like pork? That’s fine, exclude it from your weekly meals. Then divorce him. Kidding kidding, relax. Someone eating AIP in your household? No problem, just click AIP. Need some takeout style food this week? Just click on Asian. Real Plans settings makes customizing your meals easier than ever. No more scouring the internet for pork free, AIP friendly, restaurant style food. You have it all in one place! Everything you could think of, it’s customizable with Real Plans.

PaleOMG + Real Plans


So once you choose from the many recipes in their system or upload one of your favorites and import into your meal planner, then you will instantly have a shopping list that is segmented into groups depending on where you’re at in the grocery store! The list can also be viewed on your phone via their app and you can even take a picture of the ingredient to save for later. So you’ll never have your significant other calling and asking what the hell yuca is or what it looks like. It’s right there!

They also create a timeline for you, which I think is one of the coolest parts. How many times have you walked into your house at 7pm to cook dinner then figured out you were suppose to marinate something over night. Quickly your goals for making a healthy dinner fly out the door. But with Real Plans timeline, every day they tell you what you need to do that day, whether it’s hitting the grocery store, thawing out meat, or prepping a recipe for later on.

But say you’re just not sure what to make this week. Deciding can be annoying when you do that in every other facet of your life. Well, they have this super cool tool called Recipe Roulette that randomly picks recipes to help you look at recipes you might have never looked at in the first place. Give it up a ‘thumbs down’ if you’re not interested or a ‘thumbs up’ if you want to add that to your menu that week! Perfect way to mix up your routine and get outside your food comfort zone!

PaleOMG + Real Plans


Real Plans has around 2500 recipes in their database, about 611 of which are PaleOMG recipes and that number is growing every week as I create more and more for you guys! That means you can easily search my recipes, easily add them into your meal planner, easily grocery shop, and easily put together a meal that everyone in your household will love!

I’m always getting emails about how to lose weight or get in shape or feel better. And the answer is: planning. “Failing to plan is planning to fail.” That quote has always stuck with me ever since I was in college and began my lifestyle of paleo and CrossFit. Because it’s 100% true. If you don’t plan out what you and your family are going to eat, how are you suppose to keep you and your family healthy? Being healthy is not easy, it’s not simple and it takes time and energy compared to eating fast food or microwave meals. But luckily more products, more apps, and more ideas are making health simpler as time goes on. That’s exactly what Real Plans is doing for the busy mom, the single dad, the college student, and everyone in between.

So what are your goals? Are you trying to lose weight, trying to get your health under control, trying to get the family on board with paleo? What is it? No more excuses and no more eating whatever is around you. It’s time for you to take control, take planning into your own hands, and make your healthy diet easier than ever! With Real Plans, making health a reality RIGHT NOW is possible!

If you’re ready to get started with Real Plans, you can try them out with a 30 day money back guarantee! Plans start as low as $6/month ($7 if you want to access my 600+ PaleOMG recipes) and you can also shop other amazing blogger recipes, too! No more wasting ingredients or fighting about what to make for dinner. Real Plans has solved all those issues to make your life easier and healthier than ever!

    I’m a little late to comment on this post, but I have been using Real Plans for just over a year now and it is SO WORTH IT! I pay for the annual subscription (which is the most economical) and really, if it saves my husband and I from eating out twice in a year, it has paid for itself. Of course when I noticed there was a PaleOMG add on I immediately subscribed to that 🙂 Just wondering though, are all your recipes on Real Plans or am I missing out on any delicious eats that are exclusive to your cookbooks?

      i kept all my recipes from my books inside my books (unless I shared a sneak peek on the blog, then you’ll find it in real plans) but most of my book recipes are solely in my book! so glad you’ve been loving Real Plans! it’s seriously such a game changer for people!

  2. Julie says:


    Seriously, this is the meal planner of my dreams. Thank you!

    As for the person who asked if it has meal plans for one…yes. And, you can choose which days you do your meal prep, set the number of servings you want everything to have…boom. Simple. I have one day i can do meal prep for my busy workweek – so I choose 5/6 servings of those recipes, and then choose 2/3 servings for smaller meals on the weekend. Every entry is customizable. I played with it for a bit and found it was super easy to get the hang of. And the customer service people are super friendly.

    Best $7/month I’ve spent in awhile.

      wooooohooooo!! it’s the absolute best!! so glad you’re loving it!!

    Hi Juli! I started following your blog last January when I decided my husband and I needed to get ourselves back on track with food in 2016… All I can say is my feelings towards you (especially your snap chat) are like your feelings about following Kaitlyn Bistowe.

    I just gave in and decided to try Real Plans, so far I really am loving it way more than I thought I would. Do you how often they upload your new recipes?

    Thanks for providing us with constant inspiration!

    1. juli says:

      awwww that’s absolutely amazing. and makes me want to get back on my snapchat. i needed a break for a little bit haha. and they should be updating my recipes weekly. let me know if that’s not the case and i’ll make sure to check back in with them. i update recipes the most out of their other bloggers, so i think they aren’t use to adding that many recipes in that often

  4. Angela says:

    Thank you so much for this!! I’ve been following you since a diagnosis of RA a couple years ago and I just wanted to tell you how awesome you are!! I’ve laughed so hard watching your insta stories:) Quick question..Where is your top from that you were wearing in your stories when talking about this today? Please don’t say it’s over $100 and from Lululemon! Haha!

    1. juli says:

      it was from lululemon and it was over $100 lololol but it’s sold out now

  5. Helene says:

    I have 2 questions. Are white potatoes and quinoa paleo? The second question is after being on Paleo 5 weeks I still tend to get “blue” or “depressed” usually in the afternoon. I never had this problem before. I used Real Plans and just did Paleomg add-on.

    1. juli says:

      white potatoes are a grey area. they are not recommended for people who are sedentary or do not work out. and quinoa is not paleo. and i’m not sure about the blue or depressed feeling. i would recommend speaking with a doctor or nutritional therapist about that!

  6. Juli says:

    Wow… very nice, and BTW… love your name too! ????❤️

  7. Karen says:

    Hey, I signed up with Real Plans and have the PaleOMG subscription. I am really excited to make some of your recipes. Do you know how often the Real Plans website gets updated with your new recipes? I saw the Instant Pot Barbacoa Tacos and didn’t know if I should import the recipe into Real Plans or wait until they update. Thanks in advance!

    1. juli says:

      they are little hit and miss with uploading the newer recipes since i add new recipes so often. it usually takes them a month or two to catch up so i would definitely import it yourself if you’re ready to put it into your rotation. i’m so sorry for the inconvenience, i keep pushing for them to upload them quicker

    Can give us an example of a day in your life meal plan and how you keep your figure? I have gone paleo to loose weight and feel better health wise. I definitely feel better but I am not loosing weight. Therefore it will be helpful to know what an average day looks like to you.

    1. juli says:

      i’m not sure what you mean by life meal plan. but i share a ton of my meals on my instagram page and you can also see many posts of what i ate in a day. here’s a few of them –
      I keep my figure by working out 5 times a week and staying away from grains, too much sugar, alcohol and i manage my sleep and stress!

    Juli, you are awesome! A little late to the game here, but I read about Real Plans on your blog, and HAS CHANGED OUR LIVES! My husband and I have a 1 year old and a 2 year old, and decided to start eating paleo about two months ago. Meal planning while working full time was overwhelming, and this has made it so easy! I was going to the store every other day, and now I go to WF once a week and spend $150-200 and we have breakfast and dinners for the whole week!! Amazing. it is saving us so much money, and saving me my sanity. And the shopping list, hello?! Having all of the ingredients needed for a meal IN THE FRIDGE on Monday and knowing what I’m making each day has allowed me to cook for my family again without losing my mind. Plus, I’ve lost the last 10 “baby” pounds since starting paleo.
    PS. Your recipes keep me from missing cheese, which basically makes you a hero! Keep the deliciousness coming….

      yay!!! that’s so so awesome to hear! I absolutely love real plans. it’s life changing for so many people out there!
