Hi, this is Chad with PrimalPal. I'm going to show you how to change the servings within the PrimalPal Paleo Meal Planner.
You'll notice in the upper right hand corner in the meal planner view, there is a "Change Servings" button. If you click on the button, it pulls up all of the different servings for each of the recipes. It will show you the default serving size for each of the recipes.
The reason why it's important to be able to change the servings is because, you wanted to flow through correctly over at the shopping list. You want to make sure that if you're doubling a recipe, as far as servings, that it flows through to the shopping list. That will ensure that when you go to the grocery store, you're picking up enough of the ingredients.
This comes into play let’s if a recipe calls for a three cups of coconut flour. Now you double the recipe and now it's going to call for six cups. You need to make sure that you purchase enough coconut flour for six cups.
This is the screen to help you do that. It will just make everything a lot easier. Your life a lot easier, if you get everything done correctly the first time you hit the grocery store.
To change the servings, you simply go to a recipe. Let's say that you are going to have people over for dinner on Saturday night. You want to triple this recipe. It currently shows four servings and you want to change it to 12. Simply type the number of servings you want in the box and hit "Update" and then it will say, "Updated successfully".
You know that it has updated the recipe and it will tell the shopping list to add more ingredients for that recipe. Once you are done, changing all of the different servings within your weekly meal plan. You then go up to the "Change Servings" button again, you hit it and then it will close the servings boxes.
It's very easy to change the servings within the recipes, that’s it. If you're not currently a PrimalPal member, we encourage you to sign up for a 10 day free trial. If you are currently a member, we hope this was helpful to help you change the servings, so you can shop more efficiently.
