We've been using eMeals for nearly two months now and I have to say we love it! There's so much more variety in our diets and we definitely feel like we're eating better. The food is delicious, and most recipes are super easy to follow, and every meal includes a variety of vegetables and/or compatible side items. If you're more adventurous or have specific dietary needs, you could always forgo the budget-friendly plans and pick something more exciting like kid-friendly (lol), 30-minute meals, or even paleo if you're really out there. :-p

I do have a few complaints about the inability to really customize a printable based on the create-your-own meal plans (an advanced feature one might choose to use after trying a few weeks' worth of plans). We really prefer printing hard copies of all the weekly plans and working off of paper notes at the grocery store, but the create-your-own is only accessible via the app. I will say, the projected grocery cost for the first few weeks wasn't accurate since we had to purchase a bunch of staples (seasonings, primarily) that we didn't already have on hand. These days, the projected costs are pretty darn accurate - and would be more so if we shopped at one of the stores featured by the company.
There is also no way to indicate preferences for certain style meals (other than changing a meal plan) or to say that you really didn't like a meal an don't want to receive it on a future plan. Weekly plans are guaranteed not to repeat again for 6 months, so we haven't repeated anything yet, but I do wish there was a way for the company to take into consideration our preferences before sending our plans each week. My hope is that eMeals will continuously improve their service as it gains in popularity and these customization features will someday be available for use.
