A Review of E-mealz

I was recently introduced to a fabulous service that is both a time and money saver. I have often struggled with the “What’s for dinner?” question. E-mealz more than answers that question. This service is found at e-mealz.com and has dramatically changed the way my husband and I shop and eat.

E-mealz allows you to print out a meal plan for the week, which includes the shopping list and recipes for each meal. You have the option of choosing from a variety of meal plans such as low fat, low carb, regular, vegetarian, or store-specific plans. There are plans for two people as well as a family plan which serves 4-6. We are on the “any store” couples plan, which is enough food for our dinner and my husband’s lunch the next day. He appreciates getting healthy, tasty lunches instead of just another sandwich or freezer meal.

When I first heard about E-mealz, I was skeptical. I like to plan my own meals and figured that the meals on this plan would either be difficult to make or wouldn’t taste very good. I was so wrong! The dinners are fantastic and, on average, take me less than 30 minutes to put together. I often put the meal together in the afternoon and then just pop it in the oven later in the evening. It has been very convenient and helped us to break free of our eating out addiction. We would rather eat what is on our plan than go out to eat. The food is really that good!

One of our favorite meals so far was the Molasses Pork Tenderloin served with hot apple crunch, mashed potatoes, and steamed broccoli. My husband loved the Open Face Ranch and Chicken BLTs served with chips. Another night, we had BBQ Chicken Dinner Packets with hot biscuits. That is one meal that I would like to eat over and over! I could go on with many more examples, but I think you get the idea. There is a lot of variety, and everything is so delicious.

E-mealz costs $5 a month, which is $1.25 per week. The convenience of this service and the savings at the grocery store make it worth many times the cost. I have been telling all my friends and family about E-mealz. I can assure you that E-mealz will save you both time and money; plus you will be enjoying tasty, healthy meals!
