BIRMINGHAM, Ala., June 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- 'No time to cook' is no excuse when it comes to Father's Day, but there's no rule that says you can't take a few shortcuts. Online meal planning service eMeals lends a hand with a free menu for new subscribers headlined by Flank Steak with Parsley-Garlic Sauce that takes five minutes to assemble and 10 to grill. With accompaniments including Buttery Grilled Corn, Portobello Mushrooms with Soy Sauce, Easy Greek Salad, Grilled Garlic Bread and Caramel-Brownie Chunk Milkshakes for dessert, you get a family- and budget-friendly Dad's Day spread that can be whipped up in less than 90 minutes without spending time scouring your cookbooks for inspiration.
The Father's Day menu – complete with recipes and a grocery list – showcases many of the features that eMeals has developed over the last decade to help families get fresh, home-cooked meals on the table in a snap and save an average of $1,000 per year on groceries in the bargain.
For about $5 per month, the eMeals service delivers weekly menus for your choice of 50 different meal plans straight to your iPhone, email inbox or password-protect member's page on the eMeals website. The service offers classic and slow cooker plans as well as specialized menus for those who follow low-fat, portion control, low carb, gluten-free, vegetarian, natural and organic, clean eating, or paleo diets. Meal plans are available for couples or families, and for breakfast and lunch as well as dinner.
Each week's menu plan includes recipes for seven meals with corresponding shopping lists arranged by grocery section for easy once-a-week shopping. eMeals creates all menus based on the program you've selected (no need to search an online recipe database as required by other services), so you save time while also gaining variety you wouldn't get by picking familiar standbys like spaghetti and meatballs. 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.
eMeals.com has been the market leader in online meal planning since 2003, having provided a simple and affordable dinnertime solution to hundreds of thousands of busy people everywhere. The eMeals team constructs and publishes 50 delicious meal plans and corresponding grocery lists every week based on food style preferences, family size and the current sales at selected grocery stores.
