Santa Fe Soup by eMeals – Meal Planning Made Simple

Santa Fe Soup - a family favorite by eMeals! Just 30 minutes to make and so very tasty!

Hi friends! If you follow me on Instagram, you may already know that one of our family resolutions for the month is zero fast food and for the year to significantly cut back on how much we eat out. Now that may sound simple to some, but as a working mom with a lot of plates spinning, meal planning is not top on my list. But I still want to make the effort to make quick and healthy meals at home. So what’s my solution? eMeals.

eMeals is amazing has been a valuable resource for our family. To start getting eMeals, you simply choose a meal plan based on your eating style, your family size and even your favorite grocery store. And there are plenty of styles to choose, from classic, low fat, low carb, paleo and more! 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. Along with the meal plan, you’ll receive a detailed grocery list organized by section and coordinated with the weekly sales at selected stores. At the end of the day, they take care of the meal planning, the grocery list and the budgeting — while you take credit for making healthy, home–cooked meals that your whole family will love.

And our family does love it! And to show you why, today I’m sharing one of our favorite eMeals recipes with you – Santa Fe Soup.

  5. I would be interested in this emeals thing a little more after you’ve gotten a few weeks from it: do you like all of the meals they’re suggesting? Do you find you’re buying ingredients that can all be used together or are you wasting products (like if I bought an onion and only needed half of it, do they give you another recipe for the next night using the other half)? Are you finding there are enough recipes or do they circulate too frequently? Please say you’ll let us know how you like it and how useful it really is in another couple of months?!

    I might make this with a few changes ;)
