Need some delicious AND easy meal ideas?

We can all get in a “meal rut” by preparing the same dishes over and over and over each week. If you dread meal planning, are looking for new recipes, or simply needing easy & affordable ways to plan meals for the whole family, then eMeals might be the solution for you!

Lina recently enrolled in the FREE 2 week trial of eMeals and LOVED it. She will be continuing on with the subscription because of how impressed she was with the quality, taste, and overall variety of the recipes.

Some of her favorite meals from the Quick & Healthy plan:
  • Butternut Squash Quinoa Salad– Roasted butternut squash paired with rosemary quinoa, dried cherries, feta cheese, and arugula. This was GOOD!
  • Udon Pork Stir Fry– This was a flavorful stir fry with pork, veggies, and Udon noodles. Very quick and yummy.
  • Shrimp Sofrito– Such a simple and delicious one-pan meal using a can of fire roasted diced tomatoes, veggies, and shrimp served over rice.
  • Kung Poa Chicken– This was our favorite. It had a delicious spicy garlic chili paste sauce with peanuts. Yum!

Check out Lina’s in-depth Review:


What I LOVED About eMeals:

  • Makes meal planning easy with a customized menu, convenient grocery lists, and helpful dietary info by using the handy eMeals app. You are also emailed printable versions each week.

  • I learned new methods of cooking and tried unique ingredients I may never thought of. For instance: I have never thinly sliced a pork tenderloin to add with stir fry and it was so delicious! I had also never bought Udon Noodles before and my family loved!

  • There are so many different meal plans to pick from that fit your eating lifestyle such as Clean Eating, Paleo, 30 Minute Meals, Budget Friendly, Kid Friendly, Slow Cooker, Diabetic, Quick & Healthy, Vegetarian, and more. You can also change to a different type of plan if you don’t like the menu of the plan you signed up for.

  • Encourages cooking at home more which is less expensive and healthier than eating out.

  • The recipes I cooked for my family tasted YUMMY and fresh!

The Not-So-Good About eMeals:

  • Honestly, I rarely have time/energy to cook different meals each night that require a recipe. Sometimes it’s things like grilled cheese and canned soup dinners that get me through the week.

  • I rely on leftovers! I do like to make a large amount of chili, soup, or spaghetti and have leftovers through the week.  I guess you could always easily double a recipe you like from eMeals and do that!

  • I wonder if I’ll use some of the specialty grocery items in the future – like tahini, white wine vinegar or garlic paste?

  • I like to save money by meal planning based on what is on sale and in-season at my store or using what’s already in my freezer or stockpile. I spent a little more on groceries than usual because I was buying what I wanted all at the same time. 😦 shrimp-sofrito

Overall I enjoy eMeals and find it very helpful to discover and cook new, creative and yummy meals.

Even if I don’t actually cook each recipe every week, I feel like it’s still worth it because there will always be a great list with lots to choose from when I do decide to cook my family a delicious meal! 😊

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!
