Menu Planner and Cookbook

CNET Editors' review

Menu Planner and Cookbook helps plan meals and even prepare them. With simple direction and health-conscious tools, users can get their eating habits quickly in order.

We were initially turned off by the program's unimaginative, black and white layout, but the interface proved to be simple and informative enough that we forgot about it. The program was divided into tools focusing on a cookbook and meal planning. The cookbook was a delight, since it let us choose ingredients to work with and provided recipes that met those criteria. All were simple to follow and sounded tasty. Another aspect we loved was the capability to add our own recipe using a simple wizard. The meal planning utility took those cookbook dishes, and let us choose a meal and see its health aspects, like calories, fat, vitamins, and other important information. The only tricky part was coming up with a dish's health information when we entered our own, but we just took an educated guess. The program also impressed us with its healthy features: a target heart rate finder and a weight loss planner. Both were simple to operate and provided reasonable results that tied into our meal planning. While unpleasing to the eye, this program quickly proved it was a benefit to our stomachs.

The Database tools were disabled during this trial, but didn't affect its usability. The program comes as a compressed file. While it looks boring, Menu Planner and Cookbook provides some exciting results and we highly recommend it.

    "Make Eating Well and Weight Loss Much Easier!"

    July 6, 2010  |   By juddjan

    Version: Menu Planner and Cookbook 2.0

    Pros

    This program helped me lose 90 pounds in 5 months. I cannot say enough about how great it is. Very user friendly!

    Cons

    It is boring to look at, but I don't care. It isn't a video game. It works!

    Summary

    I love the yummy recipes, the option of searching by ingredients I have on hand, the printable grocery list I can generate, the way it predicted the date I would lose weight by based on my calorie and exercise input. This program does so many things!
