In today's fast-paced world many people find it difficult, if not impossible, to plan delicious, healthy meals for themselves and their families. More and more people choose to eat "on the run" and this often includes picking up fast-food for themselves and their children at the end of a long workday.
eMeals is founded on a totally different concept than other weight loss programs. The idea for eMeals actually began with two sisters from Birmingham, Alabama, Jane DeLaney and Jenny Cochran. These two women (who are mothers, wives, and lead incredibly busy lives) found that trying to put nutritious, home-cooked meals on the dinner table every night was a lesson in frustration.
After brainstorming about the challenge they and millions of other people were facing with meal planning, they put together a talented team of meal planners, experienced home cooks, and savvy technical people to try and come up with a solution. And so it was that in 2003, eMeals became a reality.
How eMeals WorkseMeals does not deliver actual food to its customers. The program encourages people to plan and cook nutritionally balanced and delicious meals by providing meal plans, shopping lists, and recipes to simplify the entire process. Here's how it works:
- Choose your plan. To begin receiving eMeals, you first pick a meal plan based on your personal preferences. These include your family size and your eating style. You can even select your favorite grocery stores.
- Get delicious recipes. Each week your meal plan is sent to your inbox. This meal plan contains seven simple and delicious dinner recipes. Each dinner includes recipes for both an entree and a side dish.
- Shop and save. In addition to a week's worth of dinner recipes, you will also receive a detailed shopping list organized by each food section. This list will include weekly sales at whatever grocery stores you have listed as "favorites".
- Learn to enjoy family meals again. eMeals takes care of the meal planning, making a list, and helping you save on your food budget. Even better, you will no longer have to worry about the always dreaded question "What's for dinner?". Instead of just grabbing something "on the go" (and which is usually not very nutritious or healthy for weight loss) you can serve delicious, home-made meals for yourself and your family with minimum effort and great results.
