Export your recipe book

You can export your entire recipe book into a CSV file at any time, whether you have a current subscription with Plan to Eat or not.

If you have a current subscription:

  1. Click the Account link at the top right of the Plan to Eat window
  2. Click Export My Recipes link under the Your Account Status heading
  3. Make sure Save File is selected and then click OK.

If your subscription has expired:

  1. Log in to your Plan to Eat account
  2. You will see a page stating that your subscription has expired. Press the link at the bottom to Export Your Recipe Book.
  3. Make sure Save File is selected and then click OK.

We export your recipes to a .csv file format with the goal of using it in your own spreadsheet software or (gasp) other recipe software. A CSV file can be opened in spreadsheet software like Microsoft Excel or Numbers. We use a CSV file because it is the file format most likely to be compatible with other recipe software if you want to move from Plan to Eat elsewhere.

The CSV file is set up as a spreadsheet with each row as a recipe. The columns are set up as:
