Whole 30 + Paleo Meal Planning With eMeals

eMeals is a meal planning service that is not only affordable, but it’s so easy to use. It’s been all over the internet the past few years, and I’m always stunned when I find people who haven’t been using it! I have been using eMeals for a few years now, and every few months I’ve switched up my menu. I’ve tried classic, low fat, low carb, portion control (when I was on Weight Watchers), and now I’m stuck on Paleo.

What is Emeals?

Emeals is a meal planning service that can help you save time and money on your grocery budget. You receive a meal plan along with a shopping list every week delivered to your email in a PDF. There is also an app, but I prefer to print them for my recipe binder. 
 
You can select from a variety of different meal plans including the newest release, KETO! Yes, there are keto meal plans now on Emeals. 
eMeals has a few menus that you can choose from, but the Paleo meal plan has helped me with my Whole 30 challenge and will continue to help me as I transition to a Paleo lifestyle. The other menu options include:
  • Classic
  • Clean Eating
  • Paleo
  • Mediterranean
  • Slow Cooker
  • Low Carb
  • Low Fat
  • Portion Control
  • Natural & Organic
  • Simple Gourmet
  • Gluten Free
  • Vegetarian

Here’s a sample of what I cook from using the Paleo plan. I receive weekly PDFs to my email, and I generally print them and file them in my recipe binder. I can also access my weekly plan through their iPhone app. It makes grocery shopping a breeze since my list is already on my phone! You can also Try eMeals plus grocery delivery with Instacart! Grocery delivery PLUS healthy recipe ideas… it’s a no brainer. You can save money if you take this route compared to other meal delivery services.

For those that are on a Whole 30 (like I was last month), it’s easy to customize the recipes to ensure that they are Whole 30 compliant. I glanced at a few of the Paleo recipes for the past year, and the majority of them were Whole 30 compliant.

For dinner last night, I decided to cook up two of my favorite eMeals Paleo menu items. I’ve been making these every so often over the past year, and I don’t even need to glance at the recipe anymore since it’s now routine.

I have found that the olive oil at Trader Joe’s is priced right, and I have been using the organic virgin coconut oil in practically everything. I also love the 21 Seasoning Salute as added spice on many of my dishes. I use it on vegetables and chicken.

I decided on Balsamic Chicken Drumsticks and Garlic Broccoli. The drumsticks are a breeze to make, and again, very customizable! The eMeals recipe includes coconut oil, minced garlic, balsamic vinegar, honey, salt & pepper, and olive oil. I skipped the honey and sprinkled 21 Seasoning Salute on the drumsticks. I baked them at 450 degrees for about 30 minutes. They came out of the oven crispy, moist, and delicious. I am a big fan of chicken drumsticks since they can be so flavorful yet affordable.

As for the broccoli, this can be done in minutes. I opted to use frozen broccoli since that’s all I had on hand. I steamed it and tossed it with red wine vinegar, minced garlic, and olive oil.

I promise that adapting to a Paleo lifestyle or committing to a Whole 30 challenge can be done. I managed to squeak through my thirty days without any cheating. I have given up soda, sweets, and I didn’t drink for a month. Using a tool like eMeals can make meal planning feel less overwhelming, and it can have long-lasting health benefits.
 
To give you some added motivation, I lost just about ten pounds and three inches off my waist after thirty days. I’m ready for the next thirty. Are you with me?
