After having a baby my drive to cook dinner plummeted. Not only did the idea of hitting the grocery store frighten me, but the idea that I actually had to prepare the meal was even worse. Over time I found a good balance, and we got take out less and less. Then, a new dilemma occurred, one that I think anyone who is in charge of meals faces. What the heck am I going to make? Do I have the ingredients to make it? And that my friends is when you start to lose the motivation to cook. If you aren’t prepared, then you fail. That’s where e-mealz comes in. Menu plans based on weekly grocery store sales, seasonal discounts, or diet preferences. The perfect solution to “What’s for dinner?”

I love menu plans! If I buy my food for the week on Sunday or Monday then the odds of me sticking to the plan and cooking throughout the week is good. But sitting down coming up with ideas of what to cook is where I fall short. e-mealz solves all that. For a $1.25 per week, e-mealz compiles you a menu plan based on your preferences, and provide you with the recipe and shopping list to go along with each meal. If you choose Kroger, Publix, Wal-mart, ALDI or Ralphs the meal plans are chosen based on those store’s weekly specials! I don’t shop at those stores, so I chose the “any store” plan.

There are a ton of meal plan options to choose from. Their regular meal plan is 7 meals for 4-6 people, but you also can get a meal plan for two people! This is the one I’ve been using and it’s the perfect amount of food! For those with special food needs you can choose gluten free, low fat, low carb, portion control and vegetarian.

The people at e-mealz want to help you get organized with your menu planning, and are offering a lucky After the Alter reader is a 3 month membership to e-mealz!! How great is that?

The giveaway will run until Thursday October 20th.
