Overview of the Shopping List

May 6, 2013

Hi, this is Chad with PrimalPal. I'm going to give you an overview of the "Shopping List" within the PrimalPal system. You can see on the left hand side, there is a "Recipe Key", on the top we have a "Date Range Selector", and then you can see that the shopping list takes up the majority of the screen. In the top right hand corner you have the ability to share your list and then also, print your list.

Let's start with the "Recipe Key", you can see I have Paleo Pumpkin Spice Muffins planned and also, Paleo Pad Thai. You will also notice that there is a bracketed [A] next to Paleo Pumpkin Spice Muffins, and then a bracketed [B] next to the Paleo Pad Thai. Why we do that? It's so that you can quickly and easily see, which ingredients correspond with each recipe. An example is Cayenne Pepper. You can see that there is [B] next to the Cayenne Pepper, so we know that that ingredient corresponds with recipe [B], Paleo Pad Thai.

That's can be very helpful when you're looking at your shopping list. The next area is the "Date Range Selector." You will notice that it's automatically se up for Today, but if we click on this button you can see that you can plan for the "Next 7 Days", the "Next 15 Days" and also, the "Next 30 Days." I'm going to select the "Next 7 Days", it's because most people plan their shopping in weekly increments.

You can see that it's now updated to the "Next 7 Days." Now the "Recipe Key" has all of the recipes that have been planned for the "Next 7 Days". You can see it's really [A] through [P]. Again, those all correspond with all the ingredients listed in the shopping list. As far as the "Shopping List" is concerned, it shows you at the very top, that there is 113 different ingredients that you will need, and the ingredients are organized by where you most likely find them atyour local supermarket.

There might be ingredients that you already have. We've thought about that, and we didn't want you tto have a longer grocery list than you need.  If you don't need all of the ingredients, we've given you the ability to check off the ingredients you already have. For example, you might have Black Pepper, All Spice, Chilli Powder, Cayenne Pepper, Cinnamon, and Coriander. You have the abilty to check these ingredients off of the shopping list.

By checking these ingredients off, you are removing rthem from your shopping list. It doesn't actually delete them from your list on the screen, but when you print your shopping list, it does remove them from the shopping list. And it also removes them when you share your list.

When sharing a list, it's really e-mailing the list.  This gives you the ability to share the list with your spouse, boyfriend, girlfriend, or even yourself.  By doing this it gives you the shopping on your phone and also allow you to pawn off the shopping to whoever you would like. That is a rundown of the "Shopping List." Pretty straight forward, pretty simple, and again, it gives you the functionality to remove ingredients you have, share your list, and print it. Thank you for tuning in.
