Meals made easyWhat's for dinner? It's not always an easy question to answer. CNET's Sharon Profis has several apps to help make meal planning a breeze.
[NOISE] [MUSIC] Cook Smarts wants to help make planning your meals a lot easier. Each week you'll receive a complete meal plan along with a grocery list and recipes on how to prepare the dishes. The service even offers dietary alternatives like vegetarian and even paleo. The first few weeks are free, after that a subscription starts at $6 a month. If you'd rather plan your own meals, check out Pepperplate. The app lets you organize your recipes into meal plans, including your own custom recipes, or ones from popular sites. When you're ready to cook, the app can go into a cook mode that keeps your screen free of messy fingers. And if meal planning just isn't your thing, there are plenty of dinner in a box options that send ready to cook meals directly to your doorstep. Explore options like Blue Apron, Hello Fresh and Plate It to see which one is available in your area. In San Francisco, I'm Sharon Projis, CNET.com for CBS News.
