E-meals review and giveaway- closed

November 22, 2010

*This post will be on top all week, be sure to scroll down for new posts*

E-meals contacted me to do a review of their meal planning system and to be honest I had to think about it for a sec, because, ummm, see  I am a bit of a meal planning snob.  It’s just that I have been planning my meals now for so long, and I was a bit stuck in my own ways, I guess you can say.

After reviewing the website and menu’s I thought, what the hey?  Let’s give it a shot.  For us I choose the Regular Family, any store meal plan.  Each week I chose 4 from the 7 recipes that I wanted to make.

Not only do they provide the meal plans and recipes, but also the grocery list. Each corresponding meal has a number to the item, so if I wasn’t making meal 4 it was very easy to cross the number 4 ingredients off the grocery list.

Being the picture nut that I am, I also took a pic of each e-mealz I made.

*the first meal

DT like me wasn’t too thrilled about this idea at first.  But after the first meal he was sold!

*a fun meal the boys loved

The variety and ease of each recipe is so very appealing.

*Taco Calzones

And at $5 a month how could you not be happy, all the planning, searching and guesswork is done for you.

*Zesty chicken salad

They even have gluten free, weight watcher, vegetarian and low fat menu plans.

*Pork Roast with sweet mustard glaze

The plans can also go by the weekly sales at your grocery store, wal-mart, or menu plans for any store like I chose.

* Camp Stew with cornbread muffin

Overall I have been very pleased with the menu plans and I am happy to say that you have the chance to win a 1 month subscription to e-mealz.

I think I would like to try the Kroger meal plan. This looks nice and easy-would love to try it!


Kelly Deneen November 22, 2010 at 9:36 am

What an awesome idea!!

I wish they had a poultry only plan. ha! I could do some of the recipes on the any store meal plan, or I could do the vegetarian meal plan.


mub November 22, 2010 at 10:17 am

I tried out e-meals and it seems like a good system but it didn’t work out for me… I’m glad that others have had good success with it!


Kristen November 22, 2010 at 11:32 am

This looks very helpful! I would love to try the Regular Meal Plans for 2 people (Walmart – it’s all I have 🙁 )


Kristen November 22, 2010 at 11:32 am

Also – I tweeted about this 🙂


Kristen November 22, 2010 at 11:34 am

And one more… 🙂 I am already a facebook follower, so I posted info about this on my facebook page!


Megan (Best of Fates) November 22, 2010 at 2:12 pm

That’s such a clever idea! As a single gal I don’t really have need of such a system but I love the idea!


Deann November 22, 2010 at 3:29 pm

I’ve thought about doing this for a while, but just haven’t commited. I would do the low-carb any store plan.


sheila November 22, 2010 at 3:32 pm

I like your meal plans, but this also looks pretty good! I’d like the Any store meal plan for families. Although I was tempted at the Aldi’s one.


sheila November 22, 2010 at 3:32 pm

I just liked you on FB! How didnt I never do that before?


sheila November 22, 2010 at 3:33 pm

Okay, bad english on the last comment, lol. I’m also getting your RSS


Heather S November 22, 2010 at 3:39 pm

I am so stoked! They have a Ralph’s meal plan for a family! And they say only $80-$90 a week! That would be a HUGE savings for me!!


Candi November 22, 2010 at 6:09 pm

I’m a bit of a control freak and don’t know if I could do it! But I would try for one month if I won! 🙂 I’d probably choose the Aldi plan for regular family since I coupon and I’d be afraid I miss out one my deals! (told you I was a control freak!)


ElaineMicheline November 22, 2010 at 7:16 pm

I think the low-carb any store would be the way to go. Helps weight maintenance and also makes it a no-fuss meal planning. Great giveaway!


natalie November 22, 2010 at 7:40 pm

I’m interested in the low carb for 2 – any store.


Sonya November 22, 2010 at 8:22 pm

I’d probably choose the Walmart plan for 2. That’s pretty much where we shop.


Sonya November 22, 2010 at 8:22 pm

I subscribe to your feed.

[…] sure to stop by the Meal Planning Giveaway this […]

Alisa November 23, 2010 at 11:48 am

I just viewed the E-meals website. I totally enjoyed the example for the “Any store for 2”. I’m strongly considering this… I always have so much trouble deciding dinner and then end up ordering out after I have spent $$$ at the grocery store. Thanks!!!


Taryn Jeffries November 23, 2010 at 1:52 pm

What a great product! Sometimes it is so hard after hours of chasing after tiny people to have the energy and brain space left to come up with great dinners for your family. The Kroger Family meal plan would be a great addition to our household! Good luck to everyone!!


Kim November 23, 2010 at 2:14 pm

I would just family meal..probably anystore. This plan sounds pretty neat.



Jessie November 24, 2010 at 1:12 pm

I would choose the regular meal plan for any store. Looks like a great service!


Jessie November 24, 2010 at 1:12 pm

I am a subscriber. Thanks!


Gelene November 24, 2010 at 10:00 pm

I am so getting e-meals, even if I don’t win the prize. I will be doing the low carb Wal-Mart plan. I cook every meal at home for myself, DH and two little boys. I am like you and love to plan my meals and even do a weekly menu but this is going to help take some of the pressure off for sure. Thanks for blogging about e-meals! I can’t wait to get my first plan.
