My Menus is menu planning software at your fingertips. The information on this site is free, but you may also register so that some of the basic information you would normally plug into the query form is remembered each time you visit. Once you get into this site you'll find some truly unique features. with the Menu Builder you can create a menu while nutritional information is being calculated simultaneously. Subtract a recipe from your menu and instantly the nutritional values are revised. Forget about the frustration of adjusting the recipe yield, simply plug in the number of people you plan to serve and let Menu Builder do the rest.

After you've created your menu, you can print out a shopping list. First, find out if your local grocery store participates in a wonderful service created by My Menus. If your grocer does participate, you will be able to download a shopping list containing aisle-specific information for that store, making your visit breeze. If your supermarket doesn't participate in this service but you wish it would, simply fill out the online form and make your grocer aware that you would use this type of service.

With thousands of recipes on this site and new additions posted every six weeks or so, the diversity of menus you can create is great. If you have dietary restricitions, you can select from low calorie and low sodium recipes. Coming soon, a coupon option so that your next visit to the grocery store is not only speedy, but saves you some money too. The ease and time-saving features offered on this site make it well-worth a visit.
