    I stumbled upon this cool website - http://www.eatthismuch.com/ - so I thought I'd share.

    It generates automatic meal plans for you. You can personalize it if you make an account - you can vary your calories (and it lets you go as low as you want), your macro- and micronutrients, the number of meals you want to it... You can also follow a specific diet plan, such as ketogenic, paleo, vegetarian/vegan etc. You can also set up your meal by size and how much time and skill you have to prepare it (e. g. Meal 1 is ''Little time (up to 15 min)'', ''Can cook'', ''Normal size'' and Meal 2 is ''No time'', ''Can't cook'', ''Snack''). Finally, you can set up a budget.

    I think it's really great for when you want to be a bit more organized, and inspiring for us lazy girls without any culinary skill or ideas. Hope you like it :D

    I love it too, but make sure you scan the suggestions past your brain before committing... my recommended meals for day 1 were fruit salad and nuts (fine), mashed cauliflower and salsa (odd) and soup with dip (?!?). Then day 2 it's 580kcal of pecans for breakfast (...), dry granola for lunch meh, and beetroot dip with dry granola for dinner. Day 3 gives asparagus and dry granola, beetroot dip with salsa for lunch, and mashed cauliflower with granola for dinner. :D

    Pretty cool. Thanks for sharing :)

    I chose the Ketogenic option in the presets as I plan on eating a relatively low carb diet for the end of year resolutions challenge. Since I plan on only having a coffee (with a small fruit or Qbar) or an instant latte for breakfast, I chose the little time/ can't cook/ meal size - snack/ complexity - simple breakfast option - so it did not allocate any meals for my breakfast, instead it recommended for lunch: a 'pizza' pepperoni soup (310.9 cal) ; for dinner, 1 serving of curry chicken salad and a red leaf lettuce with shallot vinaigrette (295 cal). The total for both meals is 605.9 (606) calories, so I can have my coffee and fruit/bar or instant latte for breakfast and stay under 800 calories.

    ^^ as SourCherry said, It's great for when you can't decide what to eat and want some ideas.

    Thanks for sharing. I plan on testing this out when I get sick of what I'm currently eating.

    This is great! Thanks for sharing.
    I've recently been looking for an easy way to plan out meals so this is good timing, I love that you can customize so many things.

    Well, I have this rule: before I do anything internet-robots tell me, I think ''Is this how the machines will take over?'', and since the answer's usually yes I take everything with a grain of salt. :D
    And I do think the internet-robots at this particular website like me more than you, my meals seemed super tasty.

    Btw, I have no idea how this ended up in Clothes, I was sure I posted it in the Online. If the mods stumble upon this, feel free to move it.

    I may have been overly stringent in setting my parameters :nervous:. Or else yes, the machines hate me :nervous:.:nervous::nervous::nervous::nervous::nervous:

    I think so too. I got something like scrambled eggs (made with 6 eggs and a ton of butter ~800 cals) for breakfast, an apple, 2x servings of red bell peppers, and no dinner. :lol:

    I came across this website a while back. I like to use it for meal ideas when I'm running low on ideas, or want something different than my usual stuff, but I don't use it on a daily basis.

    It is nice to get some fresh meal ideas sometimes.

    Thanks for sharing, it looks great! Do you know if there is an app for it? I didn't find one but not all apps are available in my country.. If it is available elsewhere I'm sure there is a way for me to download it

    Thanks for sharing @SourCherry ! I'm definitely in need of some inspiration right now, kind of in a "slump" with my eating, I feel like I'm eating the same thing every day, some new ideas will be useful.
