eMeals-Meal Planning at it’s Best


I blogged about eMeals in December, but wanted to explain just how many options they have and what a great variety of recipes and special meal plans they have for whatever diet plan you may be on.  I actually have my own Meal Planning System that I have been doing for literally years and someday I’m going to get my act together and give it to you for free along with printables and recipes…but until then..I think eMeals is meal planning at it’s best.  Even a veteran meal planner needs a break from the daily grind of hunting for recipes, planning what to buy for the recipes and then shopping and cooking for the recipes…so I let eMeals do it for me!  Well the planning anyway..
