Developing an App to Help with Large Batch Meal Prepping


I meal prep a lot to save money/have better control over my diet and I was looking for a convenient way to add more variety to my weekly meals. I often get stuck prepping the same 3 or 4 recipes but don’t really want to do the extra work of planning for new recipes.

The premise of the app would be simple:

  1. Select from a wide variety of recipes
  2. Have the recipes you choose scale up to your weekly needs (based on TDEE and macros)
  3. Autogenerate a grocery list on your phone
  4. Finally, take you through the most streamlined steps to prep all the meals at the same time.

I was kind of looking for some feedback- what are the biggest problems you face while prepping your meals?

If you don’t already prep already but want to get started, what’s stopping you?


I don’t have any problems

I learned a long time ago that I was in control of my life, so I took the steps.

My mom stopped feeding me over 35 years ago.

Change your mentality or find another mom.


There are many apps out there already that fit the bill
