Pork Hominy Soup with Cilantro

I’ve used Emeals.com in the past, but had forgotten about them until Pollinate Media reached out with a campaign. Lately I’d been falling behind on meal prep, and we ended up with whatever was in the fridge as I tried to finish up working. Grocery shopping became a nightmare when it took half a morning to plan the weeks food only to spend 2 hours shopping for it.

Working from home full time meant little time for this, but I missed cooking and preparing meals more often than I was getting to.

With EMeals, the prep is done for you. To start getting eMeals, just choose a meal plan based on your eating style, your family size and even your favorite grocery store. Every week, your meal plan arrives in your inbox — complete with seven simple, creative, family–friendly dinner recipes. Each includes an entrée and side dishes.

    Thanks for sharing, this sounds like something we could use too… considering my husband and I have been talking about starting to meal plan better for the past couple years and still have YET to figure it out! Great concept and cheap too!
