My Plan To #GetHealthy with eMeals

My husband cooks dinner more nights than I do, since these two babies arrived.

I'd like to pitch in and cook more meals, but I always feel like I don't have the time or energy to plan what I'm going to make each night.

I'm always thinking "if only the meals were just planned for me", I'd cook more often.  I like to work off recipes and have almost too many to choose from, so end up choosing none most nights.

eMeals is a cool program that I recently stumbled across, that just might solve my problem. Each week you receive an email with 7 unique and delicious dinner recipes (and sides) to your inbox, so your whole week's worth of dinners are already planned.

What's better, is that it also comes with a printable shopping list, so you don't even have to figure out what to buy at the grocery store. It's all spelled out for you.  Oh, and you have the choice of a variety of meal plans like:
  • Gluten Free
  • Classic Meals
  • Vegetarian
  • Natural & Organic
  • Clean Eating
  • Simple Gourmet.....and more

I'm going to try out this program, starting tomorrow.

Here's an example of one of the recipes under - Clean Eating
