Summer is quickly coming to an end and many of our local students will be hitting the books again in the next few weeks. Back to School time is such an exciting time for families but with busy mornings and fall activities back into full swing trying to figure out what is for dinner can be a struggle for many moms. I try to sit down every Sunday eventing with my Sunday grocery store ads and my NEPA MOM Meal Planning Worksheet and plan out my breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks for the upcoming week. It makes my grocery shopping trip and my overall week go so much easier when I know what I need for each day in terms of meals.
Let’s be honest though, sometimes we get in a rut when it comes to dinner and we find ourselves turning to the old standbys in our recipe collection and that can get boring quickly. That is why I love eMeals !
eMeals offers a variety of plans to chose from such as Classic, Low Fat, Low Carb, Paleo, Clean Eating, Gluten Free, Vegetarian and more there really is something for everyone. Every week I get an email with recipes from my plan, and a printable shopping list for groceries. There are also convenient lunch, breakfast and snack plans as well. Right now NEPA MOM and PA LIVE viewers can get 15% off an eMeals plan by using the code SCHOOL15. All new orders also get a FREE Snack Calendar to celebrate Back to School.
