Imagine the following scenario:

  1. You create a recipe, e.g. Chicken salad
  2. You add the recipe to a meal plan
  3. You go back to the Chicken salad recipe and edit it, i.e. by adding some ingredients or changing portions sizes

When editing a recipe that is included in one or more meal plans, the meal plans are not updated automatically to include the changes to your recipe. This is a design choice we have made because in our experience, in the majority of cases, it would be confusing for users that editing a recipe would change and alter many meal plans (some of the meal plans could have been already presented to clients months in the past).

When you edit recipes in NutriAdmin, you can be certain that meal plans won't automatically change, which is good to keep all your past meal plans as expected.

On the other hand, sometimes you will want to edit a recipe and to make your meal plan reflect the changes. If you want to do this, you need to make the changes in the meal plan explicitly. To do this you can:

  1. Edit your recipe as much as needed until you have the version you need.
  2. Go to the meal plan you want to edit
  3. Click on the recipe in the meal plan table and select Delete Recipe & Food.
  4. Repeat for all instances of the recipe in the meal plan
  5. Once all instances are removed, you can add back your recipe as normal. This time, the recipe will be added with the most up-to-date version.
