I don't think I've explained to y'all my STRONG disliking of meal planning/grocery shopping. I constantly stress myself out over meal planning, and am a terrible person about eating at home nightly, and making home cooked meals regularly. I wish that I could say I did better, but this topic is definitely one of my downfalls. Recently, through twitter, I discovered this AMAZING (if I could blow that word up to be a foot tall on this blog I would) site that takes all the worry and hassle out of meal planning, and does it FOR YOU! Have you ever heard of e-mealz? Do you love going to the edges of the earth to search for different recipes weekly, that you haven't made already this month, week, etc...? You don't, oh I didn't think so! Check out this site! I can't say enough about it, seriously. They didn't pay me to say any of this, and the owners will probably never even know I posted about this, but I always appreciate when bloggers share their tips on things that make their life easier, so I figured I'd join in. 

Taken from their website...
For only $1.25 per week you login to your account for:
  1. A family-friendly, concise 7-day dinner meal plan for 4 to 6 people, or a 5-day dinner plan for 2 people - with concise and easy to follow recipes and directions.
  2. A complete, corresponding grocery list - just print and go!
  3. The member's only option to participate in E-Mealz Refer-A-Friend!
e-mealz meal plans...

...are written and created by REAL moms with REAL families
...are balanced and family friendly
...are as easy as possible, but delicious and kid tested!
...consist of favorite recipes collected from hundreds of moms
...come with an organized, aisle by aisle grocery list
...are for 4 to 6 people (can also be for 2 people)
...are based on the current week sales at your grocery
...are priced at approximately $75 per week
...Two person plans average $35 total per week

It is only $5/month, let's be real, I waste that on one coffee from Starbucks! They bill you 3 months at a time, and your meal plans come out weekly. I'm totally hooked, and have recruited a few friends already as well! You'll have to let me know if you decide to try it out, and what you think!

Leah said...

Oh, wow! I'll have to go check it out. I totally despise meal planning. Sounds like a great idea!

Rebekah said...

First, I love the new design. It's fabulous. :) Second, I'm so glad you wrote about this because I'm in a meal planning rut. I'm going to start it next week because it seems awesome. And it has Weight Watchers. Beyond perfect!

Krystal said...

It looks great -- I love that they have a 2 person option. In any given week, do you like ALL the recipes they have or just some?

MrsV said...

Loving the new look girl!

If you ever need meal ideas just hollar! I won't charge ya =) I like to do recipe swaps often, for new break-from-the-routine meals around here! I have to plan my week out, otherwise it falls apart =)

Happy Monday!

I just found that site last night. J and I really hope to start that soon! I love you can do low carb!

Angie said...

That website sounds amazing. I am a weird bird though...I love meal planning and grocery shopping. I wish I had thought of this idea ;)

Ashley E. said...

Definitely checking this out!

Nicki said...

I looked into this last spring! It looked like such a great idea! I was worried that we might not like all of the meals though. Have you enjoyed them?

If you're ever in the need of some menu ideas you can always check out my blog! I have a tab at the top where I've listed all of my recent menus and I don't repeat that often! I do a lot of freezing which helps my family a ton!

Thanks for sharing! Love the new blog look- so cute!
