Cooking dinner every evening can sometimes be time consuming and stressful, especially if there are different taste palates. For most of us busy moms, cooking dinner is sometimes the last thing on our minds after a long, busy and frustrating day with work and chasing around our children. There is always our tried and true favorite standby recipes that we can always rely on, but even those can get old after awhile. Some of the “new” recipes that we’re wanting to try require a laundry list of ingredients that are usually expensive or not commonly available at the grocery store, and quite frankly, no one has time for that!
eMeals helps you take the pressure off day by day menu planning so you don’t age ten years over the course of a week. Their exceptional menu planning service offers a weekly menu plan and recipes that caters to your lifestyle, budget, and grocery store preference. You can save 35% off your eMeals subscription plan with coupon code: Cyber35
Their meals plans include: Classic Meals, Mediterranean, Vegetarian, Paleo, Clean Eating, Low Carb, Slow Cooker, Low Fat, Portion Control, Simple Gourmet, Natural & Organic, and Gluten Free. You can easily change your food and grocery store preference at no additional cost. Since they’re adamant about helping people save money with their service (the average customer saves $1,000 a year), they based their plans for a single person, a meal plan for a couple, or a family meal plan for 4+. Therefore, food and money doesn’t go to waste! In fact, Dave Ramsey, financial author, radio host, and television personality, swears by this service.
Prior to this, I never tried meal planning. Not only it helps me save time and money, but it also helps me stay focused and organized with a printable list of meals and shopping list for that week. They do have an extensive list of menu plans, but I do think they should add other plans, such as Nut-Free, Corn-Free, Vegan, Sugar-Free, and Dairy-Free since there are so many people with food allergies – gluten isn’t the only problem!
Last week, I fixed Enchilada Soup and a Spring Greens Salad that I got from the Walmart Vegetarian Family Plan. The Enchilada Soup didn’t turn out soup-like, but it was still delicious, nonetheless!
