What’s For Dinner? Meal Plans from eMeals #Review



One of the most challenging times of the day is dinner time.  Evening is the busiest part of the day and I find it so hectic around here.  There is homework, lunches, getting clothes set for work/school, get some household chores done and somewhere in there I need to prepare a decently tasty and healthy dinner.  Cooking dinner takes more time than any other meal and it’s not easy to keep the meals interesting, a lot of the time I end up spending way too much money on our dinner meals because I haven’t planned ahead.  I buy groceries I didn’t use and run out to buy more groceries to make a dish I hadn’t planned to make or we end up with take out. 

Getting the chance to use eMeals has helped me get my dinner time into shape!  With my membership ( one year of meals and recipes) I chose from a variety of menu types (vegetarian, gluten-free, low calorie, low carb, etc).  There are so many options, I had a hard time deciding so I chose low calories because I like to watch what we eat.  I also had a choicee of dinner for two or family size option, this makes sure you get the appropriate serving sized recipes.  Once you have finished making your choices and are registered, your seven day menu plan with cooresponding grocery list goes right to your inbox every week for a year!  You actually have three ways to access your eMeals menus and grocery list:  online at eMeals.com or your inbox or your iPhone.  I prefer to get my eMeals sent to my iPhone, it’s just so handy.



My first recipe was the three bean veggie chili, everyone in my house loves chili and it’s a bonus that it’s the vegetarian recipe because I am a vegetarian.  We enjoy hearty one pot meals a lot here and this low-calorie version of chili was a hit. 

This is fabulous!  I get my menu with recipes and the grocery list for the full week,  so I don’t end up spending money I don’t need to on unnecessary groceries.  The recipes are the right quantity so I won’t be wasting food or eating leftovers all week! 

eMeals helps me save money in three different ways: 

-No extra items – By sticking to the plan, you limit the extra spending on miscellaneous items.
-Duplicate items – eMeals plans try to utilize items multiple times a week to reduce waste of throwing out food.
-Store sales – eMeals planners try to incorporate your local grocery store sales into the plan.

I really think this is such a great idea, eMeals gives you a shopping list that tells you what sales are going on in your LOCAL grocery story with items on your personal recipe list for the week – saving you time!  (eMeals has partnerships with all major food stores).  All the ingredients you buy will be used in multiple recipes so that there is no waste.  eMeals is a very smart way of cooking and shopping. 

On top of all this awesomeness, eMeals saves the average consumer $1,000 a year!  Seriously, because of the smart meal planning, no waste and the store sales coordination.  The things I could do with an extra $1,000 each year.  It’s a great time to think about joining eMeals, especially with the Christmas bills coming in January, I think most of us will be tightening our belts.  Right now you can save 35% off using the promo code Cyber35 click here!

    no, this would be no good to me as there’d be too much I
    wouldn’t eat. I much prefer deciding myself what I’m going to eat
    and when too.

      Thanks Elizabeth. Some people love it others not so much. I guess depends on the individual 🙂

    Ever since allergies entered our house, I’ve felt like dinner is going to be the end of me. My new thing is slow-cooking so that the bulk of the work is down. Also, when I get home & start the whole homework/after school thing, it smells like someone has been cooking for me. LOL. Anyway, this looks like a great idea. Also, that chili is making me hungry.
