You should be able to import most recipes found in the internet. The popular ones that users visit are AllRecipes, Betty Crocker, Bon Appetit, Cooking Channel TV, Eating Well, Epicurious, Food Network, Naturally Ella, New York Times, Real Simple, Simply Recipes, Taste of Home, Weber, Whole Foods. There are certain blogs and websites that use unconventional recipe formatting and the app won't be able to import recipes from those sites. In such cases, you can use MealBoard's web interface to copy-paste recipes from those sites.
Before you can log in, you need to create your account from the app. Go to Settings -> Cloud Sync -> Account Setup. Type your email and a password, then tap the Create Account button. Then, use the same email and password to log in to the website.
The app comes with a small set of recipes but these recipes are for illustration purposes only. The intent of the app is to have users input their own recipes and use those recipes to plan their meals and groceries. You can also import recipes from supported websites.
You can follow these steps:
  1. Using your computer's web browser, go to
  2. Click the Login link located in the upper right.
  3. Sign in using the cloud account you created.
  4. Once logged in, click Import Recipes on the left panel.
  5. Click the Food Network link. This will open a new browser tab.
  6. Navigate to the recipe you'd like to import.
  7. Copy the recipe location (URL).
  8. Go back to the MealBoard website and paste the recipe location into the text box.
  9. Click the Import button.
  10. Review the recipe, make corrections, then click the Save button.
You can use the app's web interface to copy-paste recipes from any website. It’s quite simple to do and is almost as easy as importing (you can copy-paste the whole ingredient list). You'll need to create your account from the app (open the app and go to Settings->Cloud Sync and tap Account Setup), then log in at from your computer.
The recipes that come preloaded in the app are in Imperial measurements, and there is no way to automatically convert them to Metric measurements. But when you add your recipes, you can input Metric measurements and the app will work fine with it.
You will need to load the template into your empty meal plan, edit the plan, and save it as a template using the same name.
There are 2 things that I would check:
  1. You might be looking at a specific store only. If you're using the iPhone, tap the shopping screen title (top center of the screen) to show the list of stores, and tap All Stores/All Items. If you're using the iPad, tap the All Stores/All Items on the left.
  2. Check the settings of the ingredients that are missing. From the meal plan screen, tap a recipe which has some of the ingredients not showing up in the shopping list. Then, tap the pencil icon to edit the recipe, then tap Ingredients and tap an ingredient that is missing. You'll find a switch labelled "Show In Groceries". Make sure that switch is On if you want the ingredient to show up in the shopping list.
You can delete an item from the list by swiping it to the left (slide you finger across it from right to left).
You need to create your MealBoard cloud account to back up your data. To do that, tap Settings, tap Cloud Sync, tap Account Setup and create your account from there.
You can send the shopping list as an email or text message, or if your spouse has MealBoard on his/her iPhone, you can share your MealBoard cloud account so your data is automatically shared.
