Monday Meal Planning: Featuring Emeals
What would you say if I told you that you could do all your meal planning and grocery shopping all in one place…in your PJ’s, yes you never leave home! Not to mention you still get quick, yummy and healthy meals? Okay I know this is can be a dreaded subject but it is something you have to do so why not save time and money doing it? After listening to Dave Ramsey I heard him advertise a new way of meal planning and grocery shopping using Emeals. The whole idea of work smarter not harder comes into play here and to me this was a BRILLIANT idea!
Emeals is a family owned business that has developed a NEW way to get all of their recipes together for the week to your email address or App to save you time and money! These two sisters were also busy moms who understood the importance of bringing family together but also simplifying meal planning and saving time on cooking. I am not the best cook either so I love that they developed simple and kid friendly recipes for people like me. I wanted to share with you all today how I go about this while also trying to stay healthy for the week too. All I do is go to my emeals app and see what is new this week and then mark the ones I think my family would like to eat. After that I add all my recipes to my shopping cart. Lastly, I find my favorite store (Kroger) that I would like to pick them up at. That is pretty simple compared to what it used to be!
After downloading your emeals app, you choose your meal category that you would like to have them send you recipes from. You can change it whenever and however many times you would like!
Each week you get a new set of recipes. Choose which recipes you would like to add to your shopping cart for this week! We have favorites too so you can always add them to your new shopping cart.
Now all you need to do is add your recipes to your shopping cart. Then let Emeals help you shop all in the comfort of you own home! I LOVE this part. If your serious about the pajama part you can even pay $5 more for Kroger to deliver it to your door. Is that not AMAZING?!?
You no longer have to spend two hours at the grocery store and tons of extra money due to impulse buys. Not to mention toddler tantrums and “extra throws of candy in the cart from the kids.” This has forever changed the way I grocery shop and I love that they joined up with different grocery stores to make it more convenient for us busy moms. I don’t think I will ever be back inside a grocery store again, ha!
The app takes you to your clicklist and guides you every step of the way by going through your shopping cart with you. You can always go to your Kroger app afterwards and add more items too!
Did you ever think meal planning and shopping could be soo easy?? Now I do pay $5 a month for emeals and $5 for Kroger Clicklist convenience but c’mon who wants to take hours planning and bring your screaming kids into the grocery store. This actually saves me soo much time, money and brain space trying to come up with recipes for my meals. Once I have everything ready it takes you to clicklist and goes through your entire shopping list with you to make sure you get it right.
After I am done with everything on emeals, I just hop onto my Kroger app and add any extras I need for my house like diapers or juice. Now since I chose the crockpot menu (again you can change as many times as you want) all I need to do now is throw everything in my crockpot for the days I had planned to do it.
If you are tired of searching through your Pinterest boards each week like I was and spending waayy too much time at the grocery store….this is perfect for you!
