Yum yum is all I have to say. That tart looks delicious and there are plenty more where that comes from!

I have been using eMeals for YEARS and you can check out my eMeals Review, which is a little outdated since I wrote it in 2010 and the site has grown enormously since then. What I love about this particular meal planning site as opposed to the myriad others that have popped up is that eMeals has so many different plans that will fit nearly any family size and lifestyle. Want a paleo meal plan? No problem. Following a Mediterranean diet? No problem. Do you want a primarily slow cooker meal plan for just 2 people? Done. Do you serve vegetarian meals and only shop at Whole Foods? Fantastic – there’s a plan for you, too!

With each meal plan you will receive 7 diner recipes each week, which includes easy to follow instructions and an organized shopping list.

Life is hectic enough and really I can’t stand planning out my meals. eMeals makes it so easy to eat more healthy and nutritious meals without putting a lot of planning into it.

eMeals subscriptions cost just $10 per month, so with this eMeals coupon for 30% off you’ll pay just $7 per month.

Triple Chocolate Nutella Cookie Recipe

It’s not too late to treat that special someone – or yourself – to a delicious treat this Valentine’s Day (or any day)!

With any new subscription, Emeals is giving away a free Valentine’s Day Menu … which is perfect for any of us (myself included) who didn’t plan ahead. Emeals takes the guess work out of meal planning. For someone who doesn’t really enjoy cooking, or thinking about cooking, or who is too busy to spend a lot of time in the kitchen, this is clutch. I’ve long been a fan of Emeals, and am currently subscribed to the Paleo Plan. Check out my original Emeals review, which I wrote a couple of years back. Not much has changed since I wrote that original review, except that Emeals now offers even more meal plans!

If you are interested in checking out Emeals, use code “HEART” and save 10% off your purchase of a meal plan! (And yes, you can still get the free Valentine’s Day menu if you use the Emeals coupon!)

And now some fun! Emeals is letting me share one of their super delicious Valentine’s Day Recipes with all of you! May I present to you what may well be the best thing about this Valentine’s Day: Triple Chocolate Nutella Cookies.

Triple Chocolate Nutella Cookies

Ingredients:

1¼ cups flour

⅔ cup cocoa powder

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

½ cup butter, softened

½ cup granulated sugar

½ cup dark brown sugar

⅓ cup chocolate hazelnut spread, such as Nutella

1½ teaspoons vanilla extract

⅓ cup milk

½ cup milk and/or white chocolate chips

 

 

Directions:

Whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt, and set aside.

Combine butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until creamy.

Add chocolate hazelnut spread and vanilla; mix until combined.

Add half of flour mixture, then milk, and remaining flour mixture, stirring well between additions.

Stir in chocolate chips.

Refrigerate dough at least 20 minutes.

Preheat oven to 325°F. Using a tablespoon measure, scoop dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper.

Bake 8-10 minutes, or until set but still soft.

Cool on baking sheets 2 minutes; transfer to wire racks and cool completely.

 

 

Enjoy, and Happy Valentine’s Day, all!

eMeals is one of the best meal planning sites out there. I wrote an eMeals review quite a long time ago, and I still stand by everything I said. eMeals takes the guess work out of planning quality meals, no matter how large or small your family may be. What I love most about this service is they make it so simple! You can choose your plan based on what grocery store you shop at (everywhere from Whole Foods to Walmart), and whether you’d like a specialty menu, such as gluten free or low carb. I’m actually REALLY excited that eMeals recently added a vegetarian menu option. While I’m not a vegetarian, I’m a very picky meat eater and I don’t eat any forms of seafood. It’s easy enough to add some meat to a vegetarian menu, if need be, rather than changing the meat options on a meat-friendly menu.

eMeals is all about options and the menu options have exploded since I first discovered this site! Check out all of the menu options currently available:

Site Review: eMeals

SAVE TIME AND MONEY WITH E-MEALZ MEAL PLANS

Recently I was given the opportunity to try out eMeals. Have you heard of it before? In short, eMeals is a meal planning system. You sign up for a plan and then each week you receive a new set of dinner recipes, along with a grocery shopping list so that you’ll always have everything on hand to make that day’s dinner.

I have lamented on here many a time my dislike of cooking.  It is just not something I enjoy doing, though I’m learning that part of my reticence is that I dislike the actual planning process.  With eMeals, I don’t have to think about what to eat.  It is all laid out for me.  Even better?  The recipes are fairly simple and the ones I have had rarely involve very much preparation at all.

I said above that you can sign up for a plan.  There are so many different options!  For instance, there are regular family plans that include 7 meals per week that feed 4-6 people.  You can choose the grocery store where you do your shopping so that you can take part in the best deals!  There are specialty family plans, where you can choose from such options as Gluten Free, Low-Carb, Low-Fat, Points {both new and old}, Vegetarian, etc.  In fact, you can even break down some of those options by grocery store, too!

Here are all of the Family Plan selections:

E-Mealz Family Plans

You choose one of those, and for just $1.25 per week, they send you a new menu plan each week!

Or, if you’re not yet at the family stage, they also have plans for just 2 people, which is what my boyfriend and I signed up for.  Here is the list of meal plans for two people:

E-Mealz Meal Plans

There’s one big difference between the two person plan versus the family plan – the two person plan only provides meals for five days, whereas with the family plan you get meals for 7 days.  This was OK with us because sometimes we’re too lazy to do even a minimal amount of dinner preparation and we’ll go to our old stand-by – pizza.

During the two weeks that we have been using E-Mealz, I can honestly say that I really like the service.  Here’s a quick run-down on the things I like about the service:

  1. Over the past 2 weeks I’ve eaten meals I never would have considered making.  Turkey dinner in a crockpot?  Absolutely delicious!
  2. Knowing that there will be leftovers from some of these big meals, there’ll be a recipe later in the week making use of the leftover meat or vegetables!  For instance, two nights ago we made use of our leftover turkey by making turkey divan.
  3. My boyfriend LOVES E-Mealz.  Seriously.  He HATES grocery shopping, but I always drag him with me.  {Cruel, I know.}  He won’t step foot in the store unless we’ve made a list, which is so not my style.  E-Mealz makes it easy because when you print out your menu for the week it will also print out a grocery shopping list.
  4. Most importantly, perhaps, is that the meals are really easy to make!  The directions are concise and easy to follow.
  5. If you don’t like your meal plan, you can change it – free of charge – once every three months.

There are only a couple of things that I don’t love about eMeals.

  1. It’s such a small thing, but I would love to see a bit more customization in the meal plans.  For instance, there’s a vegetarian family plan, but no vegetarian plan for two.  Additionally, if they made it so you could choose foods you did not want included in the plan it would be awesome.  We switched plans last week, from the low fat for two to the regular for two, because our meal plan included two fish dishes, but I don’t eat fish.  It would be great if there were some way to indicate that when signing up for a plan so you don’t have to switch your plan, or find another meal substitution.
  2. On the grocery list, there are two lists on the page – a run-down of the required items for each meal, and then a list of essentials that everyone should have on hand.  Last weekend when we went to the grocery store we didn’t pay attention to the essentials list and so when we got home we realized we needed to run back out to get OJ because OJ isn’t something we keep around as an essential.  Essentials may vary from household to household, so including all ingredients on the shopping list for every recipe would have been helpful to us.

I highly recommend checking out eMeals!  This site has definitely made dinner preparation more enjoyable for my boyfriend and I.  Plus, for just $1.25 per week, you can’t really beat what the service provides!  While I received a one month free trial in order to try out the site, we have already decided to pay for our membership once the free period is over.

By the way, you don’t have to take my word for it – Financial guru Dave Ramsey recommends eMeals!
