I received a complimentary subscription to eMeals in order to try meal planning.  All thoughts and words are my own.

There are days around here that if you ask “What would you like for dinner?” all you get in return is a lot of blank stares.  Everyone looks at each other, and eventually someone will say, “I don’t care, what do you want?” which kicks off a chain reaction of “I don’t care, either.  What do you want?”.  It can be funny, except on days when you’re hungry and you really just want someone to tell you what to cook.

I’d try my best to do a little meal planning on Sundays.  I would try and come up with a list of meals we hadn’t eaten recently and slot them throughout the week.  If I had time, which wasn’t as often as I’d like, I’d even break out the local sales flyers to see what was on sale and make a couple of meal choices around that.  Like the rest of you, though, meal planning isn’t my only weekly (or daily or hourly, for that matter) task and it didn’t always work out quite the way I hoped.

eMeals Weekly Meal Planning

Then I read a review of eMeals and thought, “Wow, that sounds like something I need.”  Because eMeals does the meal planning for you.  They even craft the meals around your local weekly sales to help save you money!

Meal Planning Options

And because not everyone likes the same thing or follows the same diet, eMeals gives you lots of options.  You can choose from the following dinner plans:

  • Classic Meals
  • Clean Eating
  • Paleo
  • Mediterranean
  • Slow Cooker
  • Low Carb
  • Low Fat
  • Portion Control
  • Natural & Organic
  • Simple Gourmet
  • Gluten Free
  • Vegetarian

Once you choose the type of plan you want, choose the number of people you’re serving: they have a Family Menu (3-6 servings) and a For 2 Menu (1-2 servings).  Bubbles normally eats something separate from us, so I chose the For 2 Menu.  It’s pretty much perfect.  We don’t end up with too many leftovers; maybe one meal’s worth, if that.  So we don’t waste food, saving us even more money.

One thing that’s pretty great is that you’re not “locked in” to one type of plan.  Maybe you started on out with the Slow Cooker option, but now you’ve decided to start a diet and wish you’d have chosen Low Carb.  Just go into your account and update it before your next meal plan is mailed out.

Meal Planning with eMeals - Breakfast Casserole Recipe

We’ve been using the Classic Meals for the last few weeks and I’ve loved the options.  One of the pork chop dishes using the slow cooker was so good my husband raved about it the entire meal.  And the breakfast casserole we tried was tasty, and just the right size; many other recipes I had looked up were enough to feed an army.
