Ya’ll do work.
Whether it’s inside the home or outside, you, my readers, work every single day on something that (I hope) you’re passionate about – and I do too!
The best part of my day is when I get home from work. I open the fridge and try to piece together some semblance of a meal, whilst my daughter pulls the condiments bottles out and all over the floor.
And my favorite: When I ask The Big Guy (who incidentally is a SAHD) what he was thinking for dinner and he responds with a “I haven’t really thought about it yet.”
Well, dear, it’s 5pm so you should really start thinking about it.
Seriously, I’m kidding…..
My husband’s homemaking skills aside (he’s a fantastic father :-), one of the last things either of us wants to do each night is come up with ideas for dinner.
We don’t want to have to come up with endless dinner suggestions. We really don’t want to have to compile a shopping list from that meal plan. And we most certainly don’t want to come home to no meal ideas! Is your family like mine? (If it isn’t, I suggest a speedy mental health evaluation!)
That’s why we use eMeals
But on this, we agree!
At $5.00 a month, eMeals saves you from having to spend 3 hours meal planning, compiling a list, and then trying to stick to a budget in grocery store. It’s completely worth it!
$5.00 a Month = Cheap = Poor Quality, Right?
Wrong. While I was compensated for this post with a free 1-year subscription to eMeals, I paid for my own subscription for about 9 months before this, and I can assure you that eMeals is one of the easiest, most flexible, and tastiest meal plans on the market. Let’s break it down, shall we?
How Does eMeals Work?
eMeals does more than just plan your meals. You can choose which type of meal plan you want (and change the plan at any time!), tell them your family size, and your favorite grocery store. Then, each week, you get your meal plan delivered straight to your inbox (or you can download it from the eMeals website). This meal plan is not just main dishes either. Included in your meal plan are main dishes, coordinating side dishes, a detailed grocery listed organized by section AND coordinated with your grocery store’s weekly sales!
The only way to make it easier would be to send a chef to your house :-)
…..And There’s an App for That!
For me, it’s a tie between two of their meal plans: 30-Minute Meals and Crockpot! Both are for when I have no time, but the crockpost meal plan requires ZERO time! eMeals offers more than just those two meal plans, though:
Both at work and at home, I have to be flexible with whatever I had planned. I have to roll with the punches every single day – and I’m sure you do too! That’s why it’s so awesome that you not only can choose from all of these different plans, but that you can change your plan at any time! Seriously cool!
eMeals has some amazing meal plan options, and offers unmatched flexbility, but my favorite part by far is the grocery list. Each week your grocery list is delivered to your inbox, categorized by grocery store section, and even has columns denoting which meal the items are to be used for, as well as pantry items you may already have on hand. In addition, the meal plan is created with your store’s weekly sales in mind.
For example, I love shopping at Aldi, therefore I have my store in eMeals set to Aldi. When I get my Aldi sale flyer in the mail and see that green pepper are discounted this week, I know that chances are they’re going to show up on my meal plan from eMeals!
eMeals recipes are fairly simple (even the gourmet plans) but my whole family agree that they’re no less delicious because they’re simple. My husband can even cook dinner off off of our eMeals meal plans – and that’s saying something!
The meals come numbered on the meal plan, but of course, you don’t have to make them in that order. Each recipe is based on your family size, and lists any prep work as well as the total time to make so that you can switch from a longer-cooking meal to a shorter one if you’re particularly busy that night. Each meal also tells you if it’s a quick weeknight meal, so if you need to throw something in the crockpot before heading out for the day, you have a heads up. Also, eMeals has options to add breakfast, lunch, or dessert menus to your plan.
You can get started with eMeals for as little as $5.00 a month, and as awesome as that sounds, I have something even better for you!
Are you ready for the freebie?
eMeals is offering 2 weeks free
If you’re not quite ready to pull to trigger on paying for meal planning ( I get it, I really do) right now, you can try two full weeks of their service absolutely free to see if you like it. If you decide to stick with it after the two weeks, you can enjoy your choice of over 60 meal plan options including breakfast, lunch and dinner – Just click the banner above or below to get started!
You’ve (hopefully) read about how I’m Going Back to My Roots – In Finances & Health, to help me lose weight and get our budget under control, and I’ve found that eMeals helps me with both! Not only does eMeals help keep our grocery budget on track with their awesome meal plans, it helps me to eat cleaner because they have so many tasty, healthy, meal options.
No more do I eat like crap at night because I don’t know what to cook. No more do I run to the grocery store “to just grab some lettuce and chicken for salads” and then end up with Moose Tracks and brownies.
Could This Deal Get Any Sweeter?
Yes, yes it could. When you sign up for your free 2-week trial of eMeals (that ONE TOOL that saves me $1,400 a year), eMeals will throw in a FREE Comfort Foods Menu, chock full of all your favorite fall foods!
