Get healthy for summer with eMeals

Traveling for work really does a number on my diet. I try to make healthy choices (salads and lots of them.) Yet somehow I still manage to gain weight (sodium. Not enough water. Some poor choices.) Now that I’m not traveling for a while, the husband and I can re-focus on eating healthier. A couple of weeks ago, my eMeals menu had three meals that I wanted to try (out of the seven.) And I’m currently signed up for the low-fat meals. I mentioned the recipes to my husband and we tried two of the three that week (we tried the third one this week.) Only one was so-so.

Summer is just around the corner, and I know a lot of people are dieting or just trying to make better decisions when it comes to eating. Many of us are trying to slim down – at least slightly – for bathing suit season. And eMeals makes it easy by providing the menus and snack ideas for you. Oh, and along with menus, they include your entire shopping list.

Try eMeals for free for 14 days! You can select the type of menu you want to try, and they give you recipes under that menu type. Try Quick and Healthy, Low Carb, Budget Friendly (my favorite!), Vegetarian, and more categories of recipes. They send you the ingredients you’ll need and the recipes, and it’s such a great way to try new meals – and follow a type of food plan.

I mean, really. That looks so good.

I’ve been using eMeals since November and I’ve found several great recipes to add to our rotation. I’m excited to add more over the summer, since we’ll have fresher ingredients thanks to our vegetable garden.

This week we tried a Creamy Italian Chicken recipe. It was low fat, and a slow cooker recipe. A win in both areas for me. It also didn’t taste terrible. (My husband and mom both seemed to enjoy this dinner.) I’m hoping I can share the recipe in another post (possibly early next week.)

Do you have any “go to” recipes for summer?

  1. I think it’s so great that eMeals can provide families with healthy AND delicious foods! That’s been my biggest diet downfall.

  2. My go to is always tacos. The whole family enjoys them and I can ‘lighten’ them up for myself whenever I’m in a less calories mood.

  3. I agree it does look good. There’s so many delicious delightful ways to glam up a pizza (and hurrah for them all!). πŸ™‚ Well, most of them. πŸ™‚

  4. It looks delicious. I wonder if they have plenty of Asian dish recipes since that’s all my hubby and kids would eat. πŸ™‚

  5. We have been using eMeals since last October to freshen up our weekly meal plans. Love that they have such a variety and you can still eat healthy using their recipes.

  6. That pizza looks fantastic! I am looking for some healthy, lo-cal meals for summer. My favorite is this chicken pasta salad that I found!
