The start of school is just around the corner. I KNOW. I can’t believe it either. I feel like my husband has barely been home this summer (because he really hasn’t been home this summer) and I also feel totally off my game. We’re good at meal planning each week, but we have let things slide a few times this summer. It hasn’t been pretty.
Thankfully, eMeals can help when it’s time to go back to school. They can take the stress away every weekend as I’m trying to rack my brain for a grocery list and figure out what we can eat throughout the week that isn’t going to take 2 hours to prepare and cook. Oh, and they’re good about having healthy (delicious) options that even my toddler will eat.
It’s a winning time for everyone.
Speaking of winning, here’s a recipe I made this weekend (from their low fat plan.) Oh, and the chicken was part of the recipe. The sauteed squash was my own doing – I picked the squash from the garden this past week and needed to eat it soon!
- 1 ½ lb boneless chicken breast fillets
- ½ (1-oz) package fresh basil, separated into leaves
- ½ cup fresh lemon juice (juice of 3 lemons)
- ¼ cup fresh lime juice (juice of 2 limes)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- Combine chicken, basil, lemon juice, lime juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper in a large bowl.
- Cover and refrigerate no more than 4 hours.
- Remove chicken from marinade, discarding marinade. Grill chicken over medium-high 4 to 5
- minutes per side or until done.
With eMeals, you select the type of menu you want to receive (we’ve switched to a Clean Eating Meal Plan. And when cold weather is closer, I’ll switch is back to a slow cooker plan.) Every week, an email is sent you with a PDF of that week’s menu and grocery list. Should you choose all seven meals, then your list is practically complete! I tend to pick a new meal each week to try.
And right now, you can Save 20% with code SCHOOL on any eMeals Meal Plan. If you sign up for a plan, you’ll also receive their back to school survival guide that includes 10 additional recipes. They include 3 power breakfast recipes, 2 lunch box recipes, 2 weeknight dinners, 2 after school snacks and 1 dessert recipe. I’m telling you. Everybody wins.
