You know that I am a big fan of meal planning, right? It has made my life so much easier now that I do not have to answer the “what is for dinner” question every night at 5pm. A few weeks ago, the brilliant girls at emeals.com asked me if I would like to try out their service. I happily said yes, as we had a crazy few weeks ahead, it was the perfect time to not have to think about searching for recipes and planning out all of my meals. I am a big Dave Ramsey fan, and if you have ever listened to his radio show, you have heard about emeals.com. What I did not know was how awesome it is. On Wednesday, you print out a meal plan complete with grocery list. Cross off everything that you already have in your pantry, and there is your shopping list for the week. Did I mention that the list is store specific? The meal plan uses what is on sale in your grocery store. The meals were easy to make, took less than 30 minutes in most cases, and were delicious.
Here is what eMeals has to say about their program:
eMeals relies on a team of experienced meal planners, writers and editors to create new dinner menus every week that are designed around grocery store sales, seasonal specials and diet preferences. For as low as $5.00 per month, subscribers download a recipe plan for the week with a matching aisle-by-aisle grocery list. The easy-to-follow recipes usually contain fewer than seven ingredients to allow for prep times of less than 30 minutes. It also helps families stay within a predictable budget by being prepared with a detailed list to use at the grocery store.
The eMeals program has over 30 meal plan options to choose from and provides a consistent and reliable approach to food budgeting by factoring the weekly cost of ingredients into each menu plan. Menus are created around a budget of $80 per week for families and $40 per week for couples.
eMeals was created by sisters Jane DeLaney, mother of four, and Jenny Cochran, mother of three. The sisters were frustrated by the challenge of coming up with healthy, budget-conscious meals for their own families and inspired by their own mother’s frugal ways, they launched the program in 2003.
