Plans

This is where you connect the meal plan to the day plan it applies to. Therefore, the day plan should exist before you are able to use this field. If you haven’t created the day plan yet, fret not, you can come back to it later or connect the day plan to its meal plan when you get to create it. This field is also useful for making later changes.

To connect a day plan, simply search for it by typing into the field provided, matching day plans will start to show in a drop-down style selector. 

It’s possible to connect a meal plan to multiple day plans, which is an efficient way to work with this plugin. For example, if a meal applies to day 1 and 15 of the program, you could make the title Day 1 & 15, making sure to connect this meal plan to day 1 and 15.

Shopping list

Connect the shopping list that applies to the meal plan. The shopping list should exist before you are able to connect it. If you haven’t created it yet, you can come back later once that’s done. See the section about shopping lists for important advice about shopping lists.

To connect a shopping list, search for it by typing the shopping list title into the field provided, matching shopping lists will start to show in a drop-down style selector.
