Meal Planning made easy with eMeals and a Sneak peak at their Dessert menu!

My family of five can consume quite a bit of food. Is all of that food healthy? I'm ashamed to admit no. Children can often times be extremely picky, and who wants to cook a gazillion things for a 5 year old? Either they eat it, or they don't eat. Those people who say "they will eat when they are hungry" lied! My kids would starve themselves. No, I am not overreacting. So we give them what they like, and not what they need. Plus, I am awful with meal planning. I don't know what foods to make that they may actually eat. It's hard to do it all, and still have time to feed myself. Plus, my life is a mess. I am not organized by any means, and would never claim to be. It's awful to admit, I know.

What's for dinner? Ugh! I just hate asking myself, and my husband that. Can we have an actual plan here? Maybe we wouldn't spend almost $200 a week on food. (maybe I am exaggerating a tad bit here.)

About eMeals
Both Jane and Jenny are active moms, devoted wives, and very, very busy. Jane was frazzled over trying to pull off dinner for the family week after week. Her meal plans were scribbled on napkins and lost in her purse. So she went to work creating a better way to make meals happen. Along the way, Jane recruited Jenny, who is not only a fabulous cook, but also happens to be her sister.
Working with a talented team of meal planners, experienced home cooks and technical gurus, they developed eMeals to feed their families and preserve their sanity. Hundreds of thousands of relationships later, Jane and Jenny built a way to make moms’ lives easier — and to bring families together at mealtime.
I have been using eMeals meal planning services for a year now, and even though I do not follow it completely, I love what it does. eMeals helps my family save money, just so that I can feed my children what they like. Don't judge. I try to get the "real" chicken nuggets. SO give me some props there.
