Hey guys! I have a really exciting event that I’ve been waiting forever to share with you! I’ve partnered with Plan to Eat to bring you the One Pot October Challenge—a one month meal plan full of easy one pot recipes, and an amazing giveaway. The team at Plan to Eat shares my goal of making home cooked meals easier and more convenient, so we can all save money, eat healthier, and spend more quality time with our loved ones. I’m hoping that this challenge will be that missing link that helps you go from just browsing recipes online to becoming a meal planning machine. ;)

October One Pot Challenge


What is Plan to Eat?

If you’ve never heard of Plan to Eat, it’s a website that I often recommend to people who ask me if there is a way to save their favorite Budget Bytes recipes and make grocery lists. I usually just point people straight to Plan to Eat because it allows to you to do that and so much more. Plan to Eat gives you a place to save all your favorite recipes from around the web, and non-digital sources like cookbooks, magazines, and recipe cards. Once you have some of your favorite recipes saved you can create meal plans by dragging and dropping recipes onto a calendar and then automatically create grocery lists by selecting the date ranges that you want to shop for. Plus, you can also connect socially with your friends to share recipes and more. And that’s just a few of the awesome features. See why I’m always suggesting it to people? 😂  Learn more about Plan to Eat here.

One Pot October Challenge

The folks at Plan to Eat and I have created the One Pot October Challenge, which is a full month of Budget Bytes recipes (five one-pot dinner recipes per week) that you can auto-load into your Plan to Eat calendar. Once you have your meal plan loaded, you can edit and adjust it to fit your needs (increase or decrease serving sizes, remove recipes you don’t like, repeat recipes you DO like, etc.). Grab your shopping list and go! In addition to this meal plan, we have a Facebook group dedicated to the challenge, and an amazing giveaway full of awesome high-quality kitchen tools and Budget Bytes and Plan to Eat goodies. Watch this short video to see how it works:

  1. I lean on the skeptical side of things, particularly when it comes to referrals. None the less because I think so highly of this website and Beth’s recipes, I took a look at “Plan to Eat”. To my pleasure I found “Plan to Eat” to be well laid out, allowing me to easily import recipes, organize meals weeks ahead, and allow me to type in my old index cards. Additionally It also allows me to create an automatic shopping list based on my weekly recipes.

    Thanks Beth.

    1. You’re welcome! I definitely don’t take endorsements lightly, which is why you won’t find many partnerships or endorsements on my site. I only work with companies that I can truly recommend.

  2. The journey continues with One Pot!!! Gearing up for those fall flavors. I’m already filling up my new Plan to Eat calendar… 

  3. I love Plan to Eat!  I’ve used them for about a year, they’re fantastic!  So are you!

  4. I’ve heard a little bit about Plan to Eat, and I just signed up to participate in this awesome challenge!!! My birthday is coming up at the end of October and I want to get a paperback copy of Beth’s cook book. Let’s do this!!!! :-)

  5. I really love the Plan to Eat interface, this is an exciting partnership and EXACTLY what I’ve been wanting. I’ve been cooking off your site for quite a while and when I’m super on top of it I’ll print out the recipes I want for the week and make the list myself, this makes it so much easier. Thanks!

  6. I’ve been a Plan to Eat subscriber for years! It’s a really great tool and totally worth it. Looking forward to the challenge!

  7. FYI, the title of this says “PlanT to Eat.” I’m excited for this challenge and giveaway!
