meal plan

I’m a planner by nature.  Before I head to the market, I gather up a list of recipes I want to make, based on my family’s schedule for the upcoming week.  That helps me make sure I know exactly what to shop for, and also ensures that I don’t end up buying more than what my family will use.  This also helps me avoid buying “extras” or items that we don’t really need.

I’m also a huge fan of eMeals.com.  eMeals is a great and easy way to meal plan for your family.  To use eMeals, just choose a meal plan based on your eating style, your family size and even your favorite grocery store.  Then, they come up with a meal plan for you!  Every week, your meal plan arrives in your inbox — complete with seven simple, creative, family–friendly dinner recipes. Each includes an entrée and side dishes.

Even better?  Along with the meal plan, you’ll receive a detailed grocery list organized by section and coordinated with the weekly sales at selected stores.  Awesome, right?


Since I’m all about planning, I’ll be working on ways to help you organize your weekly menus so you can spend less time planning, and list making — while you take credit for making healthy, home–cooked meals that your whole family will love.
