Feeling Motivated: eMeals New Clean Eating Plan - Evolved Mommy
It’s no secret: I really don’t like daily cooking. Figuring out weekly menus and meal plans kills part of my soul. And the three hour trip to Walmart a couple weeks ago sent me into a four hour mind-numbing stupor. There may have even been drool.
Diligent moms and happy families across this country cook dinner every. single. night. and never seem to complain about it at all. Why aren’t they as annoyed as I am at the dishes afterward? Aren’t they worried about too much processed food? Or are they all cooking healthy, wholesome, well-balanced meals of appropriate portion sizes?
Why doesn’t dinner seem to bother any of my friends, but me.
And then it hits me.
Wait. No I’m not. Shut up voice.
Then I remember a saying that makes me realize maybe this isn’t 100% about dinner:
Quit comparing your insides to everybody else’s outsides.
We used to have this dinner thing down. It was almost automated. What was it we were doing? Oh yeah! It was eMeals. But we stopped after I watched Food, Inc. too many times and freaked out about processed foods. So then we started just eating junk with out planning it because I would realize I needed to cook after I was already hungry. That’s not helpful.
But guess what I just discovered! eMeals has a new clean eating plan. We’ve been using it for a couple weeks now, and I fully expected Steve to hate every meal, just like when I made him subscribe to that local green-eating meal delivery service where everything tasted like sprouts and patchouli. *GAG*
Nope. This stuff is good.
You know what else they have now at eMeals? LUNCH PLANS!!!
I can stop worrying about the preschool teacher judging me. Yes, I worry about that. And the lunch plans make lunch for a family of four, which means Charlie and I both take ham salad pinwheels, celery with peanut butter, and pear slices. Cute.
SIDE NOTE: I’m waffling on my Oxford Comma stance. Sometimes it just makes sense.
Why we use eMeals:
- Convenience – The meals are planned and the grocery list is ready. All I have to do is print. We don’t eat all of the meals on the weekly plan because we do like to eat out and we don’t eat Salmon, which makes an occasional appearance at eMeals.
- Weightloss – this is a new development. Steve and I have both lost weight in the past couple weeks and the only thing that has changed is adding eMeals back into our lives.
That is the end of my infomercial. And no, this isn’t a sponsored post. I’m just really, really grateful to the team that plans my meals for me
