I researched eMeals quite a bit before I actually signed up. We're super picky so I made a week's worth of their recipes to test it out, and once I saw a Groupon for 50% off of eMeals, I decided to sign up. So far, I highly recommend it!
In about 2 hours I had prepped 6 main meals for the week. I put everything in containers and when we're ready to eat it, I'll take it out of the fridge and cook them.
How it works in a nut shell:
eMeals sends you a list of recipes and a grocery list for the week. You can chose between certain stores that they have (like WalMart, Whole Foods, and some east coast stores) and they will tell you where to get the sales. They also have specific plans that you can chose from like "Low Fat," "Low Carb," "Natural and Organic" and so on. Lastly, you can choose the plan that fits your family: "1-2 people" or "4-6 people." For our family, I chose the Regular meals from Any Other Store for 1-2 people.
They have sample recipes for each type of plan and each meal includes what type of side dishes to make.
My husband and I are not fans of chicken or tomatoes, but thanks to eMeals, one of our new favorite recipes is a chicken crockpot meal:
Put 2 chicken breasts (I used 4 because we like to have leftovers) in the bottom of a crockpot. Top with a can of drained diced tomatoes (when I make this again, I won't drain as much, I like the juice) and a can of Cream of Mushroom Soup. Cook on Low for 4 hours (I did 6 hours because I'm paranoid when it comes to cooking chicken). I used to cook rice, but I really like the packages that cook in 3 minutes. We popped one of those in the microwave, and 3 minutes later, put the rice on a plate and topped it with the chicken, juice and a pinch of salt. Soooo goooood!!!!!
So, all of that to say that if you have a hard time deciding what to make for dinner, and you want to save money on food, try eMeals!
