I don’t know about you, but I have my go to recipes. I know how to make them, I keep most of the ingredients on hand, the family loves them, and they take very little time. But I’m getting tired of the same old. While there are those dishes: spaghetti, hamburgers, etc. that will always make it on the menu during the week sometime I’m ready to try something new. New dishes or new takes on the old favorites.
Problem is I don’t want to spend a lot of time planning it out. I’ve got Pinterest boards filled with delicious recipes, but don’t have the time to sit down research, experiment, and see if the family will like them.
At the beginning of the year I came across eMeals. I’m just now getting to explore the site. I’ll be testing out the meal plans and the recipes and hopefully sharing how it goes. The basic idea is provide families with easy, healthy, budget friendly meal plans. Saving time and money so you can spend more time with your family. This is what peaked my interest. We have a menu board and we plan out what we are going to eat every week, but truthfully we have no grocery budget. We buy what we need and I know there has to be a better way to do it.
My first impression, so much better than other sites I’ve browsed. I love the option to select your families eating style, and you can switch it anytime. We eat all natural and organic, but my husband does Paleo at times. I might switch back and forth. I love my classic feel good meals so I might throw that in for a week or two. My goal is to have a huge menu of meals to pull from. I want to expose my sons to a range of tastes; and this seems like a good way to do it. Now is the perfect time to start as our preschooler eats meals again with us and will try new foods willingly.
What do you do to help get yourself out of a meal time rut?
