Dinner isn’t one-size-fits-all. Some days, it’s not even one-size-fits-one-family. The truth is, finding dinners your whole family will enjoy can be tricky some weeks.
While they may be tempting because they’ll deliver your groceries right to your door, meal kits aren’t a fit for every family. Their limited choices may leave you with no options for picky eaters. Plus, the food has to be shipped hundreds of miles, and you still have to go to the store for your paper towels, milk, and bread.
The good news is eMeals can help you check all the boxes of your meal-planning must-haves. Need variety? We’ve got it. Need an easy way to keep track of your growing grocery list? We’ve got it. Want your groceries delivered to you? We can help with that.
Here, five ways eMeals can help you pick the right dinners for your family, save you time and money, and make everyone at the table happier and healthier.
Choose Your Own Food Style
Our weekly meal plans offer flexibility and allow you the freedom to pick the recipes that fit your family’s tastes and needs. You might prefer the 30-Minute Meals because they’re fast and efficient. Your spouse might be a big fan of the Low-Carb Plan. Your kids like everything you’ve tried from the Classic Meals Plan. In short, the whole family will find a food style they like among the 20 different plans we offer.
Find a recipe you love and want to make it again later? Leading meal kit companies brag that they don’t repeat their recipes within a calendar year, but we hope you love our recipes so much you’ll want to repeat them. That’s why we have a “Favorites” button. Click it, and the recipe will be available to you any week you’d like to make it.
Enjoy Greater Flexibility
From Quick & Healthy to 30-Minute Meals, Kid-Friendly to Paleo, we have more than 20 new meal plans every week, each with seven dinner recipes. That’s 140 different recipes, and you have access to every single one.
You can also access past weeks’ meal plans to help you build out a week of meals. Have a last-minute get-together come up? You can remove a recipe from your week, and the ingredients will come off your shopping list, too.
Compare this flexibility and variety to many meal kit companies, which offer just a handful or, at most, a dozen meals each month. You have to pick the meals you want several weeks in advance, and you can’t change your mind if you suddenly have plans or need to head out of town.
Buy Fresh Ingredients Locally
Meal kits ingredients are shipped hundreds of miles to your front door. That means lots of time in transit, hours sitting in trucks, and even more time sitting at your front door. If you’ve ever had the misfortune of getting a meal kit delivery that was lost in transit, you know the sad situation that is warm raw chicken inside an insulated carrier.
With eMeals, you can arrange to have your groceries delivered to your door—or shopped for you for curbside pickup—but the food will be coming from a few miles away, from your preferred grocery store. eMeals can send your grocery list to AmazonFresh, Walmart Grocery, Kroger ClickList, or Instacart to arrange delivery and pickup. That means you don’t have to step foot in the grocery store—a definite benefit on hectic days—but your food doesn’t have to travel hundreds of miles to your door either.
Save Money at Each Meal
The average price per serving in the most popular delivery meal kit is $8 to $10. The average price of eMeals dinners is just $4 to $7 per serving. Plus, our Budget-Friendly Meal Plans are designed to cost you less than $85 per week for a family of four. (Many eMeals customers tell us they spend significantly less than that number, too.) Over the course of a year, the average family can save more than $1000 on their groceries with these personalized meal plans.
