eMeals Review and Giveaway!

Today is Wednesday! I love Wednesday. You know why? It's the day I get my eMeals meal plan! I've written about my love of eMeals before, but I love it so much that I need to share again.

eMeals - Easy Meals for Busy People!

For those of you that don't know, eMeals is a meal planning service. Every week eMeals sends me a meal plan for the upcoming week. For around $5 a month, the service includes seven complete dinners and a perfectly organized grocery list.

My favorite part about eMeals is that it saves us money and time! There is no wandering around the grocery store picking up random ingredients and hoping you have enough. The plans are coordinated so that if you buy a bag of celery, you use it in multiple meals. There is no waste, and no extra expense. Plus, with easy, already planned meals, the temptation to eat-out fades away.

If for some reason you don't want to eat one meal on the plan -- no problem. The grocery list is coordinated so you just need to cross that number off of the list. That way, there is no extra expense or hassle at the grocery store.

Plus, eMeals offers a wide variety of plans to fit everyone's lifestyle. On a diet? They have a plan for that! Gluten Free? They have a plan for that! Vegetarian? Organic family? Only shop at Wal-Mart? Yep, you guessed it, they have plans for that!

Most importantly, eMeals dinners are delicious, and actually easy enough for me -- a total non-cooker -- to make. One of my favorite meals from this past week has been: 

Chili Pie with Sauteed Zucchini

You'll Need: 1/2 lb Ground Chuck Beef; 1/4 cup chopped red onion; 1t salt; 1/2t chili powder; 1/4 cup ketchup; 1 cup of corn; 1 package of cornbread mix.

To Make: Cook ground beef, onion, salt, chili powder, and ketchup until brown; drain. Add corn. Mix together and transfer to oven safe 8x8 pan. Prepare cornbread according to package directions. Pour cornbread batter evenly over meat and corn mixture. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until cornbread is done.

While it cooks, saute slices of zucchini in some olive oil, salt, and pepper.

Yum! So delicious!

Next week, September 24-September 28, eMeals is hosting Family Week! It's a huge focus on eating dinner as a family and its importance. In celebration, eMeals is providing activities, recipes and giveaways all making it easier to enjoy dinner as a family.

Hi Nicole,

My comment in the rafflecopter got cut off some how. My husband and I are trying to eat healthier to build good eating habits for our daughter. I would love to win a subscription to the low carb emeals as we've found that's the best way for us to maintain a healthy weight. Thank you!

I think we would do the Publix Family Meal Plan again. I've used it in the past and really liked it.

Whoa, this is awesome. I'm the grocery shopper and I HATE IT. I need to try this out.

I have been miserable both at planning meals and not being wasteful when buying groceries lately. I would love to try this out to see if it helps! I would try either the "clean eating" or the "natural and organic" plan.

Ok that seriously sounds amazing! I waste so much freaking time and energy at the grocery store- I swear it is the most complicated thing in my life trying to plan meals. This sounds like the most ingenious idea ever! Just found your blog and have loved getting to know you better... I'm excited to follow along!

LOVE this idea! I'd definitely choose the gluten free option. My husband has Celiac, so trying to find gluten free recipes or taking the time to convert 'regular' meals to gluten free is SO time consuming and stressful. What a wonderful idea! Thanks for the giveaway!

This would make life so much easier!! We would love a complete dinner menu and grocery list
Angela Leicht said…
BTW- Clean-eating is what we would want!

The Ultimate Montessori Toy List -- Birth to Five -- UPDATED 2020

When you are interested in Montessori, it can be difficult to know exactly what types of products you should get for your home. Or which types of "Montessori" materials are really worth the price. There are no rules about types of products can use the name Montessori which can add to the confusion. Not to mention, every toy manufacturer slaps the word "educational" on the package for good measure! 2020 UPDATE: This list is updated for another year! Enjoy a variety of Montessori friendly finds from both major retailers and smaller shops!  So, with this post, I'm going to try to help with this confusion! Here's a list of Montessori-friendly toys and materials for babies, toddlers and preschoolers.  First, let's clarify that there is no such thing as a "Montessori toy." Montessori never created toys, but only works for classroom settings. While there are many works that I recommend for home school use, you won't find these

Sensitive Periods from Birth to 6 - A Chart and Guide

Dr. Maria Montessori spent her life observing, studying, and writing about children. During her lifetime of work she discovered that young children move through a series of special times when they are particularly attracted to specific developmental needs and interests. She called these times, sensitive periods. During the sensitive period, children learn skills related to the sensitive period with ease. They don't tire of that work, but seek it, crave it and need it. When the sensitive period passes, this intense desire is gone, never to return.  That doesn't mean the skill is lost forever once the sensitive period is over. Instead, it just means that it will take a more conscious effort to learn. As Dr. Montessori explains,  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you. "A child learns to adjust himself and make acquisitions in his sensitive periods. These are like a beam that lights interiorly a battery that furnishes energy. It is this sensibility which enables

Our Kids' Montessori Gift Lists 2020

With the holiday season upon us we've been making lists and gathering gifts for the Kavanaugh children. It's always a fun process of observing my children, seeing what they would really be interested in and making some decisions based on what I see. This year is different because I'm also making decisions knowing that we are looking at a very long and quiet winter ahead. So that's influencing the amount I will buy and the specific choices I will/have made.  Henry and Nora are also at the point, being into the second plane of development, where they heavily influence the items on the list and what is ultimately purchased. So, you'll see that while Montessori influences what I will purchase and what goes on their list, so does their own preferences and personality.  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you.  Theodore Teddy is 14-months-old right now and as the fourth baby, we have so many toddler things. But, there are a few things I've still found tha
