I decided to give emeals a shot. They had a groupon special and for only a few bucks more then their 3 month plan you got a year, so I figured meh, if I am going to tr for 3 months, might as well pay a few bucks more on the chance I like it.
I went for the natural and organic, mainly because many items listed in the normal meal plans are not sold here.
But I am still having to tweek, and I am really not sure if I will go with it full time or not. As of right now I am still doing a mix of our normal meals we enjoy as well to swap out for ones with costly ingredients or items we do not eat like shrimp.
I would like it a lot more if it was customizable like no seafood, ect. I am still seeing lots of items I cannot get like frozen sweet potato fries, hell I am lucky to even find fresh. Kind of defeats the purpose when you have to go bust out your math skills on the grocery list.
We will see. I wanted to try and I am happy to give it a go. But kind of bummed about tweeking the recipes and grocery list constantly. Though I can say I do like that is exposes me to many recipes I would never find by randomly searching. So it will expand our diet to try new things. So I may do just a few meals a week from it, I am going to play it by ear. I will keep all the recipes in a binder for meal ideas to match to sales if nothing else.
I wish they had a German version with local store sales, buahahah. Maybe I can make my own. Not to sure the Germans would be all to into that idea.
