4 ways to organize your food life with evernote


evernote-food-mainI love food. Healthy, delicious, whole foods. In fact, I believe food is one of the most remarkable ways that God loves us and shows us His grace. Nourishing us. Sustaining us. And making it enjoyable at the same time. If there’s anything else I love too, it’s staying organized.

When I’m at my best, I feel as though I’m supported by organizational systems that allow me to quickly file and access information. For me, Evernote is becoming that organizational system.

One of my favorite ways to use Evernote is to keep my food life organized. From collecting recipes to tracking my favorite restaurants, Evernote is like shelves full of magazines that detail the best restaurants, and full of cookbooks that chronicle the tastiest recipes. All at the access of my fingertips.

Here are four key ways I’ve found that Evernote helps me stay organized when it comes to eating out, eating in, and eating well:

web 1. Organize recipes with tags:

In one notebook titled Food Life, I use the tag feature to easily organize and search for recipes. Common tags I use include:

  • meal
  • breakfast
  • snack
  • side
  • dessert
  • glutenfree
  • dairyfree
  • grainfree
  • vegan
  • paleo

This is also helpful when I am entertaining guests and I want to accommodate everyone’s dietary needs. For example, a quick search for: #glutenfree, #vegan, #side helps me filter through all of my recipes and find the best item for the occasion.

Last summer, my husband and I were celebrating our anniversary in Chicago. We were looking for some new restaurants to try. We found a great allergy-friendly spot. I took a picture and tagged my meal so that I could remember that place for a future visit, or offer my experience to someone else.


3. Meal planning: 

Thanks to Evernote, I can share a notebook with my husband which includes grocery lists for specific meals that we eat on a regular basis. I can also snap a picture of a specific brand of almond milk, for example, so that he can see the label and easily find it when he is at the grocery store.

4. Evernote Food:

For a long time, I ignored Evernote Food in favor of keeping things simple with the main Evernote app. Recently, though, I’ve discovered how Evernote Food actually augments the main Evernote app. It creates a discrete notebook within your main Evernote account, and can help you in three key ways that I’ve found helpful.


Restaurants and My Meals: When we go out to eat, all of my meals are archived. I take photos of my meals, and add notes about the meal. What I did and didn’t like about the food, the service, and how allergy-friendly they were.

Cookbook: Recipes found in my Evernote are automatically added to the Cookbook on Evernote Food.

Explore Recipes: This is a fun feature if you’re looking for some new recipes to try. You can search for specific recipes or ingredients to avoid.

I personally like to keep everything in Evernote. If you haven’t played around with Evernote Food, you should. See what works best for you. We all have our own systems that work for us. I hope this was helpful for you in organizing your food life!

    I simply wished to thank you so much yet again. I am not sure the things I would’ve implemented in the absence of the ways revealed by you over that field. This was a very daunting case in my position, however , being able to see the very expert tactic you dealt with it took me to cry for happiness. I’m happy for this support and then have high hopes you recognize what an amazing job you are undertaking teaching men and women all through your blog post. More than likely you haven’t got to know any of us.

    Just ordered the book. My expectations are high but after a few months reading this blog and knowing that you spent all this time writing it exactly as you wanted it, I find those expectations to be quite realistic.Best of luck!

    Thank you for highlighting another awesome use of Evernote! I have been using both Evernote and Evernote Food for quite some time, but have never considered using the shared notebook between my husband and I for our grocery list. We currently use another app (that is not so great), and have been hunting for an alternative. Evernote is the answer to my “problem”, yet again! Evernote gives me joy. Thanks again!

    Hi there! I’m new to your blog and found you through Instagram. This post especially caught my eye because i’m trying to eat healthier for my 60-day Insanity challenge (I type this while eating a breakfast bento filled with fried rice, scrambled egg and bacon – not doing so hot here – haha!)

    Anyway, I’ve never thought of organizing my food using Evernote. In fact, that sounds like such a great idea! I can start planning my meals in Evernote instead of in my head. Thanks so much for the advice and I look forward to reading more posts! xo.
