Hey everyone, Vanessa here. If you've been following the blog for a while, chances are you know how much I love cooking. Most nights, it is a family event with at least 3/4 of us in the kitchen. I love the prep work, I love the fragrance of delicious foods wafting through our house, I love that my girls reap the benefits of being in the kitchen with me, and I love serving up delicious healthy meals for my family, In fact, the only thing I really don't like about cooking is the clean-up afterward!
For a while, I was a pretty avid meal planner. I would plan, at least a week out, all of the meals we would be having for dinner. I would plan to enjoy at least one vegetarian meal a week, serve leftovers at least once a week, and I really loved when I scheduled making a whole chicken (or ham) one day and using some leftovers from that to make a meal later in the week. When I was really on a roll, I sometimes completed an entire month's worth of dinner planning! I really enjoyed having everything planned out in advance. However, as we all know, life gets really busy sometimes. It sadly has been 2 months since I've made my own meal plan, but luckily I came across eMeals and got to try it for free!
Started by sisters Jane and Jenny, eMeals helps busy families by sending a week's worth of meal ideas straight to your inbox. You can subscribe to receive meal plans for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even DESSERT! That's right, eMeals has a (new) dessert plan! To get started with eMeals, you simply choose a meal plan based on your eating style, family size, and even your favorite grocery store! One of my favorite things about the meal plans? You get a detailed grocery list which is organized by section and can be coordinated with the weekly sales at select grocery stores.
I signed up to receive the Low Calorie Family Plan. I can be pretty picky, but the meal plans we have received have been great so far. I will end up trying most of the recipes but there are some things I just won't cook (mostly seafood, only because I have never cooked it and I don't really eat it).
Black Bean and Zucchini Mexican Tortilla Bake
Apricot Glazed Pork Tenderloin with Herbed Brown Rice and Asparagus-Pepper Saute
Penne with Garlic and Chicken
Like I mentioned earlier, eMeals has recently introduced a new dessert plan! I have a HUGE sweet tooth, so the dessert plan is a welcome addition to my house and it also helps when I need a new idea for church fellowship. The good news (for me especially) is that eMeals will send 3 dessert ideas every week (including a mix of Crowd Pleasers, Quick and Easy options, and Skinny Sweets) which means I can satisfy my sweet tooth, but not over indulge myself. Please don't judge, but honestly if I could eat desserts for every meal, I totally would!
