Martina McBride has announced a new venture that includes one of her passions. No, it’s not music, that passion is cooking. The Kansas native has launched a brand new app called Menu’d.
Menu’d is a meal planning app that allows you to plan great meals from your phone. Martina took to Instagram to share the big news.
“I’ve waited a long time to do an app. I wanted to find something I was really passionate about. Well I found it!,” Martina wrote in the post. “Today is the day I get to share it with you! I’m so excited to officially launch my meal-planning app, Menu’d!”
She went on to explain what Menu’d can do for you. “Menu’d saves time, stress, and money when it comes to planning dinner.” Who doesn’t want that?
Known for making her way around the kitchen, Martina released a cookbook “Around The Table” in 2014 and has shown a penchant for cooking over the years.
“Listen, we’ve all rushed to the grocery store at the last minute with no list and no idea what to make for dinner,” she continued. “Or we stare at the fridge hoping something will just magically appear. I’ve been there so many times! When we’re hungry and stressed we tend to reach for the quickest thing we can get our hands on. This is when we cave and go through the drive-through or order in. But not only is that way more expensive than buying and making fresh food, it usually is food that is high in sodium (hello bloating) and fat. I’m a big believer in moderation and balance in life.
“I don’t deprive myself if I occasionally crave something that’s a little on the questionable side of healthy. But I also am a believer in “you are what you eat”, and most of the time I try to eat food that gives my brain and body nourishment, prevents disease, and just makes me feel better. I want to help you do that too. And don’t worry, healthy eating to me isn’t all just rabbit food. Actually the recipes I submitted are recipes I cook in my real life, so there’s a mixture of healthy, and some that we’ve modified to be healthier, but you still get recipes like Creamy Tarragon Chicken and Steak Fajita Bowls with Garlic Lime Rice! And there are plenty of vegetarian options and most can be made vegan as well. So let’s do this!”
We’re in! Here’s how it’s done. Download the app from the app store, follow Martina, and you will get recipes that she has herself made. Followers will get new recipes and meal plans each month. Once you choose and favorites, the app will push those ingredients into a easy-to-follow grocery list for you.
It’s as easy as that. We’ll be cooking like Martina McBride in no time.
