Notes from the Kitchen: E-Mealz Review


We've all had those days, even weeks, where figuring out what's for dinner is a daunting task. Whether it's busy schedules, picky eaters, or just getting stuck in a rut with the same few meals, getting dinner on the table can be a dilemma. can help take the pressure off a busy mom! The meal planning site provides multiple options for dinner plans, delivered right to your inbox, starting at a price of approximately $1.25 per week.

What we loved:

  • Each meal plan contains SEVEN complete meals, not five or six, with a built-in day for leftovers or going out to dinner. My family and I like to plan for seven meals and, if we choose to go out, order a pizza, or finish leftovers, we can drop one item from our meal plan, versus planning on eating out once a week.
  • You have your choice of grocery stores! Meal plans are available for several large grocery stores, including Kroger, Publix, Walmart, Aldi, and Ralph's, along with a "any grocery store" plan. We often shop at the commissary (we live on a military base) and discovered that the any grocery plan worked perfectly with our scheduled shopping.
  • You have a choice of meal plans. Do you need low carb, low fat, gluten free, or vegetarian meals? All four of those are options when choosing a meal plan, and offered as Walmart, Publix or any grocery store options.
  • There are fantastic shopping lists. Each menu plan also comes with a printable grocery list which you can reference before going to the store, broken down by section, labeled by meal, and including a list of pantry staples necessary. Following the included list made our grocery run much quicker.
  • The meals are family-friendly and easy to prepare. This may be the most important factor. As a mom, I love sitting down to dinner with my family, but spending several hours in the kitchen isn't always feasible. I love meals that can be prepared simply when we are getting home late after activities.

E-Mealz plans are available by subscription on their website ( for as low as 3 months for $21, including the choice of plans.
