Back in May of 2016, I wrote a post telling you about teaming up with the amazing company Real Plans – a comprehensive meal planning service that makes eating healthy for you and your family easier than ever. And ever since that post, the feedback has been AMAZING. People are absolutely loving Real Plans and everything it has to offer! And it seriously just keeps getting better, all because of member feedback!

The number one reason people give up on their healthy diet habits is because the planning and prepping is just too difficult. With work, family, sports, gym, grocery shopping, meetings…it just feels too complicated and overwhelming to get a healthy meal on the table. But not anymore all because of this amazing meal planning service!

Real Plans makes planning your weeknight dinners, quick morning meals and even afternoon snacks so simple. No more guessing on how to make the whole family happy because Real Plans insanely intelligent program will do the work for you! Check out this quick video below to see exactly what they have to offer!

So let’s talk about everything Real Plans has to offer!

For picky eaters or diet restrictions: 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.

Grocery Shopping Lists: 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.

Not sure what the hell you want? 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! It’s pretty much tinder but for food. So wayyyyyy better.

PaleOMG + Real Plans


Real Plans has around 2500+ recipes in their database, about 650+ 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, especially now that the New Year is underway. 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!

Real Plans continues to grow, even since working with them for the past 8 months. Not only can you get my recipes through their meal planning service, but you can also get Wellness Mama, Nom Nom Paleo, The Paleo Mom, Nourished Kitchen, Autoimmune Paleo, Well Fed, Naturally Ella, Carlsbad Cravings, Cookie + Kate, Health, Home & Happiness, and The Whole30 Solution!

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 those 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! Click here to find out even more about Real Plans!

And in case you want to hear reviews from others, you can read some of them here, but here are just a couple from my own website:

Julie: “WHAT IS THIS I CAN’T EVEN. 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.”

Melody: “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 :)”

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. I’ve been using RealPlans with your recipes for a few months now and love love love it! It is 100% worth the money spent. I no longer have to flip through my cookbooks, websites, and recipe cards looking for something that fits our diet. We went Paleo about a year ago and this service has made it way easier to keep on track. We use your recipes most often for our meals which I have found to be consistently delicious. I would highly recommend getting this service (plus the Paleomg recipes) if you want to be organized and have easy access to healthy meals.

  2. RealPlans is AMAZING!!!! Over the summer I was getting so sick of my “chicken, broccoli, sweet potato” grind that I was eating out all the time and eating food that made me feel sick. Then I saw your post about RealPlans and immediately signed up for it + the PaleOMG add on: GAME. CHANGER. It is sooo awesome- the recipes have been consistently delicious (boyfriend approved- and he eats the Standard American Diet). They’ve mixed it up and given me variety but they’re always amazing.

    PLUS I love the app because it just makes a grocery list for you which is super easy at the store. I just need to manually upload my fave recipes from your cookbook and I’ll be set 😀

    If you’re on the fence, I would totally recommend this purchase!!

  3. Question for you about recipes: how do you go about coming up with new ones? I imagine it’s a lot of trial and error, but do you ever search online/in cook books to compare your recipes with others, to ensure that yours are unique? And do you have any sort of copyright on the recipes you create?

  4. Hi Juli, I was confused when I saw the upgrade for Paleomg recipes. What actually comes with the annual membership (before paying for an upgrade)? I can’t find this on the website…

  5. I LOVE Real Plans. I have been using it since July and it has made my meal planning and prep so much easier. Also, their customer service is amazing!

  6. I love real plans after forgetting that I paid for a year subscription bad…Since figuring out I actually had Real Plans it has been a life changer. The best thing is the shopping list when it lets you tick what you already have .

  7. Hi Juli! I tried out a month of real plans earlier this year when you first blogged about it, but as a New Year’s treat to myself, I went back and bought the quarterly subscription. I’m absolutely hooked! I love how you can adjust the portion size so there’s no food waste. I made your recipe for “Creamy Chicken Chili” recently and it was such a treat. Thank you for introducing us all to something so wonderful (and I absolutely love your recipes!!!)
