eMeals [giveaway]


If you are like me, then you know that it can be a struggle to get dinner on that table every night. Before we know it, school will be back in session and the days will get busier and busier. Soccer practice, ballet, piano lessons. You get where I can coming from right? You also know that I cook for a living, and getting dinner on the table every night is a challenge, even for a professional. Last year, my husband and I vowed to live a debt-free life. We listened to a lot of Dave Ramsey, and if you have ever listened to his show, you have heard the eMeals commercials about a million times! Coincidentally, eMeals contacted me and asked me if I would like to give their meal plans a try. I said yes, and almost a year later, I still go back to my eMeals meal plans. It is just so easy. A week of meals and a grocery list to go with it. The meals are easy to make, nutritious, and really, really good. Pick a store or a specific  diet, dinner is now a no-brainer.

Even better? eMeals is launching a lunch plan! Enter to win $100 Visa gift card giveaway that they are doing to help with back to school and a free back to school download kit with purchase that includes a sample of their soon to come new lunch plan, printable notes for lunch boxes and a back to school checklist.

Here is what eMeals has to say about their program:

eMeals relies on a team of experienced meal planners, writers and editors to create new dinner menus every week that are designed around grocery store sales, seasonal specials and diet preferences. For as low as $5.00 per month, subscribers download a recipe plan for the week with a matching aisle-by-aisle grocery list. The easy-to-follow recipes usually contain fewer than seven ingredients to allow for prep times of less than 30 minutes.  It also helps families stay within a predictable budget by being prepared with a detailed list to use at the grocery store.  

The eMeals program has over 30 meal plan options to choose from and provides a consistent and reliable approach to food budgeting by factoring the weekly cost of ingredients into each menu plan. Menus are created around a budget of $80 per week for families and $40 per week for couples.

eMeals was created by sisters Jane DeLaney, mother of four, and Jenny Cochran, mother of three. The sisters were frustrated by the challenge of coming up with healthy, budget-conscious meals for their own families and inspired by their own mother’s frugal ways, they launched the program in 2003.
