    Remember when I mentioned eMeals a while back? Well, we've been doing it for a few weeks now and I've yet to cook a bad meal. Seriously, we are huge fans. This casserole is SO delicious. I've told all my friends how much I love it because it's so easy. You get a print out with the week's menu as well as a corresponding grocery list (just make sure to fill your husband in so he doesn't buy last week's groceries - this may have happened). The grocery list is set up by aisle, making it super easy to navigate the shop. You can even pick your plan based on where you shop. Bonus: The plans are budget-friendly and the week's menus are even based on the coupons for that store (if you choose a store plan). Awesome!

    Just cooking for one or two? They have plans for that as well. You can also tailor your plan to your diet: gluten-free? low-carb? organic? all covered. Sam and I have been doing the low-carb plan and I make it organic as well by making substitutes if I need to. Also, if there's a recipe that doesn't sound like our kind of meal (unfortunately I am not a fish eater), then I'll skip that one and plan for a meal out. Because really, who cooks seven days a week? Don't lie.

    1. I do have my 90-day plan already BUT it would be nice to have some new recipes! This thing sounds great! (i have liked you on FB already and am aboutn to go like emeals)

    2. Probably choose the natural and organic family plan :)

    3. I would like to try the gluten free plan! THanks.

    4. I would choose the Clean Eating Plan for 2. We're about to have our 1st baby and I know meal planning will fall by the wayside once he is here!

    5. I plan our meals a month at a time, but I would love to try this emeals biz! We'd probably do the Clean Eating for 2. :)

    6. I'd probably choose the natural & organic or low carb. I love all their new meal plan options! I joined about a year ago for 3 months, but there weren't as many options so it was hard to find a good plan for the way we like to eat. So many options now! Just wish they had a Trader Joe's option :) And it makes me miss Publix...

    7. I would choose the Clean Eating Plan for 2. We are both trying to eat healthier! Thank you for exposing me to eMeals! :)

    8. mmmhhhh ! ça à l'air super bon ! bisous isa

    9. Funny that you're on the low carb plan but they gave you a recipe whose main ingredient is hashbrowns. :) Looks delish, though! I liked emeals on fb (and you, duh) and I would choose the vegetarian plan, of course!

      1. haha! they actually only do one of these type recipes a week and this one only has 20 carbs, so not terrible because it's such a thin layer of hashbrowns on each piece. it's sooooo good.

    10. mmm, that casserole looks delish and once i can eat eggs, hashbrowns, or even breakfast again- i'll make it!

      i'd probably do a family clean eating/natural plan. mmm

    11. I've been looking into EMeals thanks to Dave Ramsey, but just needed an extra PUSH. With 3 little ones under 5, and a husband that works into the night, maybe I would be able to pick the meals for 1-2 people, and get to head back to Whole Foods with eMeals help!! Now wouldn't that be nice!

    12. i'd vote clean eating for sure. just liked them on facebook :) but do the "any store" plans apply to trader joes? because we don't usually shop at any of the other places....

      1. sadly no! someone else was talking about that, so maybe soon?

    13. Joe and I just sucked this dish down as a very late(I don't work tomorrow) dinner. So good. I am thinking the clean living plan or Publix plan for us. Aaron loves his veggies.
