Jon Acuff: eMeals Makes My Pants Fit

Now I need to be smarter about what I eat. At one point I wasn’t and my wife said, “We can’t keep buying you new pants.” She was right. We didn’t need a line item for “bigger pants” in our budget. I needed to make healthier food decisions, which eMeals makes incredibly easy.

They have a whole section of meal plans that are diet specific. From Gluten Free to Vegetarian to Portion Control, they’ve got me covered. (No word yet if they’ll take my suggestion of a section called “Nashville Skinny Jeans,” but a guy can dream.)

The meals are delicious, the plans are super cost effective and at the end of the day, my pants fit.

Fast Meals, Slow Dinner

Before I met the E-Mealz team I’d never written about food. I’d never talked about recipes. I’d never tweeted about ingredients. I thought saffron was something you made sweaters out of. Like cashmere. I’m not a food blogger. So then why was 2011 such a fun year for me with E-Mealz? Because E-Mealz is bigger than just food. It’s about family.

{Jon Acuff} Bringing Dinner Back Week #7 ~ Dinner is a catapult.

We’re perfect parents. We never make mistakes and our kids always clean their rooms and get straight A’s in school and have bright white teeth that will never need braces. Not really, but that’s often the assumption I make about every other parent in the world. They know some trick, they have some special formula, they’re perfect parents and I’m just Jon.

{Jon Acuff} Bringing Dinner Back Week #6 ~ The thing about knives.

Week 6 of the dinner challenge is here! After a pitiful showing by me last week, I’m back with a better record. And a new story about something I learned in the kitchen. Something I never expected. Something that surprised me. I’m talking about knives.

What we learned: Smart lessons about sharp knives

I’d love to exaggerate and say that I’m one of those husbands who regularly cooks dinner. I’d like to pretend that sometimes I just surprise the whole family with a soufflé I baked. Or that for our anniversary I put together some sort of seven course meal by hand. Seasoned with love.

But the truth is, I am a rank amateur when it comes to cooking. I can barely scramble an egg. I am lost in the kitchen. In college I once ate jalapeno poppers for three months straight. Then, I met E-Mealz.
