eMeals - Online Meal Planning Service That More Than Pays For Itself

Updated on March 27, 2013

Easy Meals for Busy and Frugal Families

This page is about an online meal planning service I've used that we enjoyed and found it saved us a lot of money. See if you think it will work for your family too. eMeals is an online meal planning service. eMeals (formerly E-Mealz) is a big help for those who have trouble figuring out what to eat each week, and people who would like the time-saving of just being able to print out the recipe list and the grocery list and go!

The recipes are basic foods that families want to eat, not anything overly fancy. The directions are easy to follow. Most of the meal plans are set up for families of 4-6. There are several meal options from which to pick, from low fat to Two-person meal plans. They've recently added gluten free and other diet options. eMeals is very inexpensive already, but when you choose a meal plan for a particular store, the recipes are chosen based on what your store has on sale that week! This saves an enormous amount of money and time. It more than pays for your eMeals subscription.

So if you're a person who gets a blank look on their face whenever someone asks you "What's for dinner?" Then eMeals is for you. You'll now come home from the grocery store knowing you have everything you need to make a weeks' worth of meals -- including side dishes! It's a great feeling.

Are you looking for a stress-free way to plan and prepare a delicious holiday dinner?

Do all the magazine covers and elaborate recipes leave you feeling hopeless that you can pull off a home-cooked holiday meal for your family and guests?

Do you prefer the traditional turkey dinner?

If any of this rings true for you...

You need a Holiday Dinner Makeover from Emealz

Rave reviews last year from our members:

"Just wanted to tell you the holiday menu was wonderful!! Everything was so quick and easy to prepare!"

This is a complete traditional holiday menu with recipes that a typical family will actually eat and enjoy! The turkey, all the sides, trimmings and desserts are included with a corresponding grocery list, which is organized aisle-by-aisle. No long recipes with pages and pages to print, leaving a long grocery list to compile on your own - just a two-page concise menu with a one- page print-and-go grocery list!

For you brave ones who may be preparing the entire feast or for you designated hosts who have to delegate every dish, this menu-done-for-you may be better than your own personal staff of elves! Take the holiday stress off your plate and put a delicious and beautiful dinner on it for everyone to enjoy!


Holiday Roasted Turkey

Baked Sage Dressing

"Not Too Sweet" Potato Casserole

Classic Mashed Potatoes

Pan Gravy

Cranberry Marshmallow Delight

Simple Gourmet Green Beans

      I use this because my fiance and I would spend an hour just trying to think of things to eat. Now, I have this set for Aldi's and pops up a menu every Wednesday. If we do not like some of the meals we just substitute. It is nice having a grocery list and a plan without spending the time making it.

      I just learned of eMeals recently and am thinking of doing it next year. Sounds like a great idea, especially because I'm busy and don't plan healthy meals very well.
