A couple months ago I was given the opportunity to try out EMeals and I'll admit, I was skeptical at first. I try my best to meal plan on own most of the time, and usually follow through. But football season wrecks my life every year. (How's that for dramatic??) Jared and I order more pizzas in October-November than we do in a year's time due to a lack of planning. The late hours and weird weekend shifts take over and our fridge ends up sad and empty entirely too often. However- EMeals has fixed that!
Something I noticed -and liked- right away is that you have the option of signing up for 3, 6 or 12-months at a time. It gets cheaper if you sign up for a longer membership, but it's nice to know I could just jump in for 3 months when I need the most help. EMeals lets you choose from all types of meal plan options-- seriously, there are TONS! Then once a week they send you your meals/recipes for the week along with a shopping list and a rough estimate of how much it's going to cost you too!
Jared and I have been loving their low-carb meal options but we've also dabbled with the slow-cooker meal plan as well as the budget-friendly meal plan. That's right, you can change what plan you're signed up for at ANY time. No fees, no hassle... it's right up my alley. The budget one picks recipes with fewer ingredients and can be a huge money-saver if you're like me and can tend to overspend on groceries.
And you know what else? Every single recipe we've tried so far has been a hit! Every one! I can't count the times I find something via Pinterest that sounds delicious only to have it not turn out nearly as good as we'd hoped. It's nice to be confident in trying new things and knowing they are going to taste great. You can try EMeals completely free for two weeks via their website- another awesome move by the company. And you know who endorses these plans? Besides me, of course ;) My buddy Dave Ramsey! And I'm pretty confident you all know my feelings for Dave by now.
Emeals provided me with a free trial of their services, but no other compensation was involved. All opinions are my own!
