“What I love most about it is that I don’t need to think of what’s for dinner. Thinking of a healthy meal for the family during the working week is tricky so I really appreciate the inspiration from your meal plans. The hard work is done”.
Emma, Soupstones Member.

I nearly cried when your planner came through today! My life is really hectic at the moment, lots of decision making needed, stress etc and to have the planner with recipes that are easy and scrummy, portion controlled and a shopping list it was such a relief. The added bonus is that, being single I get lunch the next day and there is no $ or food wastage. Thank you, thank you!”
Cecelia, Soupstones Member.

“I can’t thank you enough for simplifying my dinner times with relatively low cost, healthy & delicious meals. Half the battle is thinking up something to cook & after a 12 hour mentally challenging shift at work that is sometimes near on impossible. I also can’t believe how tasty everything is. I’m yet to try something that isn’t delicious”.
Bec, Soupstones Member.

“The meal plans are simple, easy to prepare, tasty and healthy. I love that it comes in a simple PDF format with a shopping list already broken down. You’ve made it SO simple to actually cook meals 5 nights a week – it’s wonderful!”.
Stephanie, Soupstones Member.

“Since I started I noticed from my jeans that I lost weight without thinking about it, I am also saving money because I buy less ingredients than normal “.
Edith, Soupstones Member.

“It’s so revolutionary for me as a cook. I could not boil water, and now I make all three meals for my boyfriend and me, with confidence. I actually, GASP, go off the recipe and add my own flair with what I have in my fridge or my spice rack… something that I could have never done without your meal plans holding my hand and helping me through the hard stuff – decision making. Fun bonus, all the recipes are delish!”
Crystal, Soupstones Member

“Combining Soupstones Meal Plans and Recipes with a new, regular exercise program, has had the extra added benefit of making me even healthier — and 25 pounds [1.78 stone] lighter!!!”
Sherrill, Soupstones Member

“The biggest change for me is that I eat a lot more greens. The second big change is that I’m using vegetables that I have found daunting in the past, ie: eggplant! I love that you can just bake those suckers and sprinkle on nuts and voila, dinner! I am delighted with your recipes and programs. I am eating much more healthfully and with so little fuss that I actually prefer eating at home to going out.”
Donna, Soupstones Member

“You are like my personal assistant. I’m trying to eat Paleo. Your consideration for all eating styles is FABULOUS. I never have to wonder how to make the meal paleo. You’ve taken all the work out of it. I also enjoy adding my own twist to some of the recipes. Again, your starting template makes this super easy for me. The fact that the menu comes out on Thursday or Friday works great also. I would never be able to grocery shop during the week. Going on Saturday or Sunday and preparing a couple of meals on Sunday truly sets me up for a stress-less week. Again, I am ETERNALLY grateful for your brilliance in providing such a tasty and affordable service!!!”
Alexas, Soupstones Member

“I have enjoyed your meal plans for several reasons:
1. Because they are different to the boring old things I’ve been cooking forever.
2. Because many of them are quick to prepare, which, after work, has been a bonus.
3. You approach meals in ways I have never thought of, and have got me over the imprinted thing in my head that I always had to have red, green and white vegetables at every meal.
4. You use ingredients I like to have in the kitchen anyway, but use them in ways I haven’t.
5. You have given me a renewed interest in cooking and a new joy in eating.
6. I don’t spend boring time wondering what to cook.
Thanks a lot for all of that Jules.”

Bron, Soupstones Member.

“Last week I cooked 4 of your meals from the meal plan & they were lovely. I have always appreciated
your website & recipes, but I didn’t appreciate fully how eating this way more ‘full time’ can radically cut down on costs & cooking times, still being delicious.”

Maria, Soupstones Member.

“I’ve seriously enjoyed being a subscriber for the past year! It was a Christmas present to me from my husband, Gerald. Here’s my first time feedback after using Stonesoup for a year: Your plans are very creative and I just love the photos, the pdf format so I can adjust things, add notes, and check things off as I buy them. I also really appreciate the amazing variations you provide; it helps if an ingredient is missing in the pantry and I need to substitute or make do. Using your plans have really made a difference in the way I meal plan–Thank you so much!.”
Andrea, Soupstones Member.

“It took me a bit to get going on it, but when I made a leap and just went and shopped from your list — Voila! It was marvelous. I made everything like you said, even if I thought, we are not going to like this recipe. It’s pretty amazing, but my husband and I have liked every single meal. I’ve heard him talk about Soupstones Meal Plans to people and he says, You read the recipe and you doubt it’s going to taste good — but it ALWAYS does! He gets very excited now to see what’s in store for the week.”
Marjorie, Soupstones Member.

“Love the meal plans. I am gaining confidence in the kitchen, saving money on groceries, and as a bonus the plans are so healthy I am loosing weight. The plans are easy to modify for one person too.”
Maddie, Soupstones Member.

“I’m loving it! It makes week nights less stressful, frees up mental space as I’m not stressing over what to cook – and, as a fairly experienced cook, I can either follow you exactly when I’m tired or late home or use your recipe as the basis for my own creation when I’ve got more time. And it’s keeping our meals healthy. So money well spent in my book. I look forward to Friday’s now and seeing what you’ve got in store for the next week. A big thank you”
Donna, Soupstones Member

“I love your recipes and tips so far! I have no time to plan a week’s menu and the shopping list as I’m the primary care giver for a dear close relative. Shopping is done once a week. I do 2 to 3 main dish recipes of yours over the week. It is helpful that the recipes are nutritious as well as tasty. Most of all they are quick to assemble and there are very few pots and pans to wash up.”
Ermadene, Soupstones Member.

“First let me say that you have completely changed the way I look at cooking now. Your recipes are dead on what I have been looking for….easy, healthy and generally one pan / pot. Love them and my Husband even says that he’s surprised at how good a cook I have become.”

Robyn, Soupstones Member.

“My husband and I are loving the Soupstones Plans. We have gone from eating out for most meals to eating in about four nights a week. I’ve planned meals in the past that were too complicated and couldn’t bring myself to cook them after working all day. Now, I buy the ingredients listed each week in the plan and put them together into meals each night we don’t have other plans and will be home. I feel very powerful and happy having the ability to consistently create a meal from what is already in the house and it feels rather miraculous. We can eat something we really like within the hour of getting home, have the kitchen cleaned back up and have the rest of the evening free before we would get home in the past. Thank you!”
Cheryl, Soupstones Member.

“I’m a fan and am enjoying the meal plans.…I signed on with three goals:
1. eat more healthfully
2. save money on groceries
3. {hopefully} lose weight
I’ve been tracking my data and I’d say I’m doing quite nicely on 1 and 2 so far (i think #3 is more my poor intermittent snacking habit…although I did find the sweet potato and red curry soup a wonderful foil for my puffed cheetos cravings!)
I love the “add veg” option for the ‘more healthfully’ part and the cost is coming in at an average of $50 USD a plan.
I also appreciate that when you call for 2T heavy cream that not too many days later we put more of that cream to use in another recipe so as not to waste.”

Jane, Soupstones Member.

“There is a wealth of knowledge on stonesoup that I use to simplify my cooking. I come from low fat cooking (which helped me slim down but also fatten up again) and have religiously cooked out of your Love Your Waistline ebook for about 10 months now. The new Tasty and Healthy I have started using more and more, and now I have great suggestions with the meal planning, to spice up the variety. I really like the variations you provide as am aiming for slowcarb/paleo 95% of the time. I’m going to party the other 5% of the time with all these awesome recipes…Thank-you once again.”
Ben, Soupstones Member.

“Thank you so much for a year’s worth of meal plans. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed receiving them as I am converted to a real foodie! I know that’s happening as I now give real thought to what I eat and will go hungry (avoiding a quick processed snack/meal) in favor of a delicious homemade one from one of your meal plans. The other day I made a lovely tuna & tomato salad: halved cherry tomatoes, chopped red onion, sliced black olives, tuna with lime juice squeezed over it. I served it with a few tortilla chips and know that without the inspiration from your blog and meal plans I would probably never had put that mix together.”
Sonia, Soupstones Member.

“The meal plans have been going really well – I have been choosing at least 3 or 4 meals a week and buying only once & being set for the week. It’s great – haven’t done it like this for a long time & while it takes a little bit to prepare, its only once a week rather than 5 times! And in the long run, cheaper too. I have fewer left overs, and while I was skeptical of meals with only 5 ingredients, I’ve really enjoyed the simple flavours & it reminds me that simple is just as good (probably even better in most cases!). I’ve known for a long time I need to simplify my meals, but struggled to do so…so thankyou!”
Julia, Soupstones Member.

“I have made a few recipes and had good results. I think your menu plan is brilliant. Some of the ingredients are new for me to cook with, some of your combos definitely new, but the simplicity of the recipes and the deliciousness of what i have tried so far is a definite attraction. The staples list for the pantry is a great idea and very helpful for me who never remembers what I need when I get to the store and of course, don’t have it at home either.”
Deborah, Soupstones Member.

“I find the meal plans great to be honest. My life is quite multi-dimensional and changeable so the recipe fit in quite well. I don’t do a big shop but buy what I need more on a day to day basis.
I can just look through the meals on my phone and shop for one or two meals. The storage ideas helps with too. Sometimes I may find myself eating out a lot or have lots of people arriving for dinner. It is good to have some quick and easy recipes up my sleeve. I am gluten intolerant so I love the paleo options.”

Janet, Soupstones Member.

“The thing I appreciate the most about your recipes is the suggestions for substitutions. I’m a vegetarian, so having a list of substitutes in each recipe is a major bonus. Thanks!!”
Susan, Soupstones Member.

“With a big family to feed every day (four meat eaters and two vegetarian), cooking was becoming exhausting for me and I felt I had to prepare two completely different meals each night. I LOVE your simple 5 ingredient recipes – I just have the extra one vegetarian ingredient and have found my love for cooking again with the added bonus of saving money. The love has come back into my food – I am not just feeding but nourishing my family with fresh and healthy food.”
Sal, Soupstones Member.

Finding a meal plan that suited a veggie and meat eater moving in together was a real bonus, had I known this before I joined up it would have been the main reason, so I would love to be able to help make other potential users aware that this is another great part of the service. I am also GF so to have the plans cater for all our preferences was amazing!
Thanks for getting me back to a place where I love cooking again, even at the end of a long week. I would just like to add that the format of the meal plans is great. I love the simplicity as I have been using them on my tiny, old phone without any trouble ?
Thanks again!”

Crystal, Soupstones Member.

“You have helped me so much with building confidence in new things and not getting stuck in a rut. Your meal plans are easy to follow, the shopping list is awesome, and I love the hands on video tutorials. I have been searching for years for such a dinner plan and I found it in you, too many times I was derailed before I even started they were so difficult! My family knows all about you and even ask me if something is ‘one is Jules’ recipes’. You are greatly admired in my corner of the world so please don’t change a thing. I think you ROCK!”
Kindra, Soupstones Member.

“I am so glad I signed up for this, but I think my husband is even happier! Every night I’m hearing comments like, “I have been eating so good lately,” “This tastes like it came from a [Thai, Indian, etc] restaurant!” “That looks like a picture in a magazine” and “The house smells soooo gooooood.”
Dyann, Soupstones Member.
