I have posted about eMeals before. They are my sanity. Every week I get an email with a grocery list and 7 recipes, all healthy and Paleo. I know a lot of your resolutions are to eat healthier this year, and I know that eating healthier can be expensive. I know that my husband was quite surprised when we started eating this way, we bought less stuff and the grocery bill went up. Good quality things cost more, and that is just how it is. The only way you can save money is by planning your shopping trips carefully, and only getting what you really need. It is not easy to do that though, especially if you are used to eating things out of a box or package. This is where eMeals shines. They give you everything you need and even coordinate with weekly sales to be sure that you are saving the most money while getting great meals on your table.What kind of meal plan would you use for your family? Here are the different options;
- Classic Meals
- Clean Eating
- Simple Gourmet
- Paleo (which is what we use)
- Low Carb
- Low Fat
- Portion Control
- Natural and Organic
- Gluten Free
My kids and husband are picky and it is really easy to customize the meals they give us each week. This chicken stew had a few things that they wouldn’t like such as onions and stewed tomatoes. I put huge slices of onions in and took them out before serving, and traded the 2 cans of stewed tomatoes for one can of tomato sauce. Here is my modified version, and my family all ate this up with most of them going for seconds!
Healthy Chicken Stew Recipe
1 onion sliced into large pieces
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
2 T minced garlic
1 1/2 lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs sprinkled with salt and pepper
1 can of tomato sauce
32 oz. homemade chicken broth
1 T Worcesterschire sauce
In bottom of crock pot or dutch oven, which is what I used, place onion, sweet potato and garlic. Place chicken on top of vegetables. Add sauces and broth. Cook on low 6-8 hours. Remove onions and shred chicken before serving.
With delicious dinners that my family will actually eat, that I don’t have to plan, with grocery lists that are easy to follow (and the ingredients all have the meal number next to them so if there is a recipe that you don’t love you can see what ingredients you don’t need to get easily), and they coincide with weekly deals at your local grocery stores saving me about $1000 a year…I think $5 a month is an absolute steal!
