We're not on a diet at my house, but I have been trying to serve more low carb menus just for our general health and to try to keep from gaining weight, an uphill struggle at my age. If you have similar concerns, let me share with you my source for easy low carb recipes.
A few months ago I joined an online subscription menu service called e-mealz. It costs as little as $5 a month, so very affordable, and if I follow their weekly menu plans I easily save that much or more in groceries, so it's well worth the price for me. The part that I love about it is that e-mealz offers multiple menu plans, depending on the size of your family and any special diet needs or desires (i.e. gluten free, vegetarian, points system). In my case, I chose to subscribe to the Low Carb Meals for 2 plan - and I love it!
All the weekly meal plans include a grocery list and, in fact, for most of the plans you can choose a version that uses foods specifically from the grocery store where you shop (several store choices are available, including Wal-Mart).
The terms of the program say that I'm not allowed to share the recipes with you, and that's only fair, but I will mention the name of a few of the easy low carb recipes that I've prepared from the plan in the last couple of weeks. Today, for instance, we had a fabulous Mandarin Chicken Salad. Earlier this week I fell in love with Crustless Mexican Spinach Quiche with Corn Pepper Relish. Last week's low carb menu plan for two included a Mexican Casserole and this week's plan that I just printed includes a One-Pot Pork and Pear Bake that sounds awesome. I can't wait to try it!
If you're looking for meal plans that include low carb recipes, I'd highly recommend that you check out e-mealz. If you have other dietary needs, or if you're just looking for a great weekly online menu service that will help you save money on your grocery bill, check it out. They have sample menus available for each of the plans so you can choose the one that suits your family the best. I've been happy with my first choice so I can't personally vouch for any of the other recipes or menus, but I can tell you that we've been eating some mighty good, healthy, low carb meals around our house for the last few months and I plan on using the service even more exclusively in the future.
For full disclosure, if you click on a link and end up subscribing to one of the e-mealz online recipe plans I will receive credit for your purchase, but that won't affect the cost of your subscription in any way. It's free to check it out, so why not click here and give one of their sample easy low carb menus, or another menu plan, a try. I'd love to know if you like it as much as I do!
