I get it! A few years ago I was in your shoes.
After much trial and error, I created a template for Airtable users that will help you:
And the best part?
It only takes a few minutes a week to use!
It’s called the Stick-With-It Meal Planning System.
I think you’re going to love it!
Hi, I’m Cate, and I built this recipe organization and meal planning template for Airtable users.
Want to know why?
I longed to consistently make healthy meals at home.
But I'm busy!
I tried printables, calendars, and app subscriptions...but they took too much time to set up, weren't easy to use on my laptop and phone, and just didn't work with my eating preferences and family's dietary restrictions, so they never worked for me long-term.
As a result, I could never stick with meal planning for more than a few weeks.
I needed an easy system for meal planning using my own recipes that I could access on my phone, iPad, and laptop no matter where I was.
So I turned to my favorite tool: Airtable.
I've now been meal planning week after week for 3+ years!
It’s powerful – but it only takes a few minutes a week to use its full meal planning potential.
This tool puts you in the driver’s seat, helping you quickly and easily create custom meal plans that fit your busy lifestyle, diet & tastes!
I’ve done all of the hard work of formatting and designing the recipe bank, meal planning, and grocery list templates for Airtable, and I teach you everything you need to know to get set up and start using the system -- so all you have to do is follow the video tutorial and start meal planning.
And because it’s based in the cloud, it’s accessible wherever you are. So you can easily access your meal plan, recipes, and grocery list anywhere, anytime.
Built in Airtable – so you already know how to use it.
It combines the best features of a spreadsheet with extras that make meal planning super easy!
Designed to actually be used – by anyone.
I've included a video tutorial showing you how to get set up, as well as the simple meal planning routine I've used week after week for 3+ years.
I've made it simple and easy to get started -- then, when you're ready, you can choose which additional features and customizations to "unhide" to make the tool even more powerful.
Access on All Devices.
Create your meal plan, access your recipes, and check your grocery list on your phone, iPad or laptop.
I am OBSESSED with this meal planning system. I was a little nervous about using Airtable at first, but I found it incredibly easy to get started with the template Cate provided. And the video tutorials were super helpful as well!
I'm actually looking forward to my meal planning each week because having a system for having all my recipes in one place while ALSO being able to do my meal planning there is a game-changer for me.
The first time I used Cate's system, I populated a bunch of the template and made my first meal plan in about 15 minutes. As I keep adding to it, it's taking me even less time.
This system is going to be my ticket to easier meal planning for years to come (and I've never said that about meal planning before)!

Cate’s Stick-with-It Meal Planning System is definitely a meal planning strategy essentially anyone can stick with.
Her instructions make setting up your system easy, and it is well worth the investment. It actually makes meal planning fun, something I look forward to now instead of dreading.
And don’t think it’s over-complicated because it’s an Airtable template -- because it’s not at all.
You can make this system flexible and personalize it to fit your family’s needs, and make it easy to stick with meal planning instead of giving up.
I would definitely get the Stick-with-It Meal Planning System again! It’s made planning meals so much easier.

This is for you, if you want to...
This isn't for you if...
Do you explain how to use the system?
Yes! You'll get a 25-minute video tutorial that shows you how to use and make the most of the template and shares my meal planning strategy, tips, and hacks.
What if I don't already use Airtable?
No problem! I show you how to create a free Airtable account and start using the Stick-With-It Meal Planning System. I've set everything up to make it as easy as possible.
If Airtable is free, what am I paying for?
The Airtable platform is free to use. What you're purchasing is the template I've created and perfected over a couple years of using it myself every day. Airtable has paid options but you don't need them to use this template.
Do I have to type in all of my recipes?
No! You can add a URL to an online recipe, upload a PDF, copy and paste the recipe or simply note where the recipe is located in a cook book or recipe binder.
Cate’s detailed instructions on how to use Airtable and her system within Airtable were so thorough and straightforward, I am converted.
I am now confident I made the right choice to go with the Stick with it Meal Planning System. My meal choices are now all in one place, I love all the options available for viewing the actual plan whether it’s a week or a month, the fact I can enter my recipes as a URL, upload a PDF or enter a recipe book name with page number.
The system makes it so easy for me to keep all our favourite recipes in one place, plan for a week or a month, my grocery list and I love that I can also use it for special occasions and holiday meal planning also…No more racing around looking for those holiday recipes, they are all in my meal planning system.
Thanks, Cate, this makes my meal planning life so much easier.
