Easy Meal Planning

Can You make a Meal Plan Every Week?

a2z: the Letter 'E'

Are you good at making weekly meal plans? 
I'm envious of those who write their weeks worth of meals on a blackboard. It's not that I can't plan a menu, more that I forget to do it. 

A friend, Jennifer Tiszai told me about EMEALS. I was skeptical about signing up, having someone plan my gluten free meals. 

EMEALS has several plans, from low carb to gluten free. You even get to pick the store you shop at the most.

I've been using the gluten free meal plan any-store since March. It has saved us a lot of money. The meals for the week tend to use the same ingredients. Which means that container of sour cream you bought for one meal gets used in several instead of it being tossed in the trash in a few weeks. 

Even Dave Ramsey has approved of this system. 

I asked if I could share one of my favorite recipes and they said yes.

Can you see that yummy glaze? 

This dish is going to become one of our favorite comfort foods. It's a perfect fall/winter/early spring meal.

EMEALS doesn't just provide you with the main dish, they also give you a side dish and shopping list. On holidays they provide special meal plans. Those aren't emailed to you so remember to check the site if you decide you want to try this service.


Here's the recipe without photos to make it easier for you to try.

  1. My best dinners are the ones I throw together at the last minute. Unfortunately, they can't be replicated because they are so random!
    Thanks for sharing that recipe... sounds yummy!

    1. Niki, I'm a random cook as well, that's why this works for me I think. I've been accused of never making the same meal twice since we've been married. My son's don't even have a favorite meal to request. Not to mention even with EMEALS I tend to change up the recipes.
