Please help with advise on a meal planner plugin.

Hello everyone. First post to this sub. I’m a WordPress designer who has been tasked with building a meal plan extension/plugin for a client’s site. Only members of a certain subscription membership will have access to a dashoard.

The dashboard (in my-account page) needs some custom functionality where a user can add meals/ recipes to a meal plan. The meals are already loaded as a custom post type via Jet Engine with meta fields for calories, macros etc.

Could anyone give me some direction or point to resources I can read to builds a simple 7 day table where a person can click “add” and then select the meal to add to that block based on the recipe archive (perhaps displayed in a modal) that is already available on the site.

I have a full stack JS dev on board but he is also struggling to make it work.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
