NEW YORK, June 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Attention, frustrated or busy cooks: you can now plan, shop and cook dinner from your phone with the new Android mobile app from online meal planning service eMeals – giving new meaning to the phrase 'grab a meal.' Free with an eMeals subscription and also available for iPhone, the app delivers weekly menus, recipes and grocery lists for 50 different meal plans ranging from classic to clean eating straight to your phone for anytime/anywhere access.
With simple recipes that get dinner on the table in as little as 30 minutes, eMeals eliminates menu planning (the service does it for you), saves shopping time (buy all groceries for the week), provides variety (no more complaints about the fourth mac and cheese dinner in a month), and even trims your food budget (through smart planning by eMeals pros).
Each week's menu plan includes recipes for seven meals with corresponding shopping lists for the entire week arranged by grocery section – all accessible from your email inbox or the eMeals website as well as through the mobile app. eMeals creates all menus based on the eating style you've selected, whether classic, simple gourmet, vegetarian, clean eating, natural & organic, low carb, low fat, portion control, slow cooker, or even gluten-free or paleo. You don't waste time searching an online recipe database as required by other services. You can also specify a store such as ALDI, Kroger, Publix, Safeway, Target, Walmart or Whole Foods to take advantage of sale prices that help shape eMeals' weekly menus.
The mobile app – announced at CE Week in New York this week – adds extra benefits including the ability to:
- View your personalized weekly menus on your phone – no computer necessary
- Buy groceries without printing your shopping list – just pull it up on your phone
- Remove a meal if you're eating out – items will be automatically deleted from the grocery list
- Add extra grocery items -- they will be integrated into the right spot on the shopping list
- Access recipes away from home – in case you're cooking at mom's or a friend's
Subscriptions start at just $5 a month. Plans are available for couples or families, and for breakfast and lunch as well as dinner.
