With the arrival of the new baby just around the corner, I am thinking I need to get serious about menu planning! We’ve done menu planning in the past, and it was a huge help, but I got bored. Then it was back to the old “what’s for dinner?” routine. Quite possibly the most hated question in the house.
As I looked at the old menu’s I have, all I could thing was, “Ugh. Boring.” To help me get out of the menu planning doldrums, I recently signed up for eMeals.
eMeals is a menu planning site that features weekly dinner menus WITH matching grocery list and that allows you to choose a meal plan based on your eating style, family size, and even your favorite grocery store. Once you’ve chosen your plan, you receive a weekly email with a meal plan that includes recipes and a shopping list. The shopping list is organized by section and is even coordinated with some stores weekly sales.
The following menu categories are available in the eMeals Plans: Classic Meals, Clean Eating, Simple Gourmet, Paleo, Low Carb, Low Fat, Portion Control, Natural & Organic, Gluten Free, and Vegetarian. You can switch your plan with a simple click of a button, after signing up, if you decide another plan is a better fit for you and your lifestyle.
Be careful, though, that you don’t try to switch it too many times. When I first signed up, I was having a lot of *eh-hem* digestive issues, so I was trying to decide between a Paleo plan, a Clean Eating Plan, or a Natural & Organic Plan. I kept switching back and forth with the “change this plan” button, instead of using the “See Meal Plans” option, and got my meal plan locked into place for four weeks! Now I know. LOL.
While I only signed up for the dinner plan, eMeals also offers breakfast and lunch plans as an add-on option. The thing I really like is the ability to choose your grocery store. We do the bulk of our grocery shopping at Aldi, and being able to plan our grocery budget, with an Aldi eMeals Plan, is huge!
With eMeals, menu planning just got easier!
