Innit is making healthy cooking easier in 2018

New Year's is around the corner, and with it come the overambitious resolutions I'm never able to keep. Each year, like many others, I resolve to be healthier and cook more. But between the time it takes to source recipes to substituting them to fit my family's lifestyle to actually cooking them, my goal always seems out of reach.

That's why I was excited to discover Innit—an eating technology company whose new app facilitates everyday cooking. It does this by connecting all the steps you take to get a meal on the table (something that's never been done before). I had never really thought about how much work goes into creating a meal. But after using the app, I realized just how complicated the whole process is—from actually choosing a recipe to shopping for ingredients to figuring out how to cook it.

When you open the Innit app, it asks you about your dietary preferences, your allergies, likes and dislikes—then, it suggests personalized meals for your entire family. So, it gives you an entire meal rather than just a one recipe. It auto-creates grocery lists to make shopping super easy, and when you're ready to cook, it's got you covered with easy, how-to videos. It even sequences all the instructions to make sure all parts of your meal are done at once!

I was surprised with just how convenient Innit made everything—I was really able to get dinner on the table in 30 minutes every night for a week! I'm definitely going to continue to use it in the New Year.

Here's how Innit is making healthy, everyday cooking easier in 2018:

Innit recommends healthy and personalized meals based on your food preferences. Going paleo? Innit has got you covered. Vegan? Delicious recipes await. Love the sound of a Steak and Kale salad but avoiding red meat? Swap out the steak for Salmon and the meal instructions and how-to videos will update seamlessly.

Meal planning is one of the best ways to eat healthy and avoid succumbing to cravings, but it takes time! Innit can do the planning for you, offering you personalized shopping lists, instructions, and step-by-step guides that save you precious time and energy and keep you on track with your goals.

Innit connects with GE Appliances and BSH Home Connect technology to turn your smart oven on and off at the appropriate time, sending custom instructions to ensure optimal cooking and notify you when your meal is ready! That means less time in the kitchen, and more time to spend on your other goals, like working out, reading more, or taking more relaxing bubble baths.

Home cooks can download the IOS and Android app for free at, which features meal planning, cooking instructions, and smart shopping lists for healthy meals such as Broccoli Quinoa Bowl, Sesame Nori Mushroom Bowl, and Steak Kale Salad.
