Continuing on with meal planning madness month, I’m reviewing Eat at Home meal plans. Keep in mind that all the reviews we’re sharing are tried and true. We didn’t just browse the websites – we actually tried out the services for ourselves so we can give you an honest review.
What Makes Eat at Home Meal Plans Unique
First, they stand out from other services, because they give you access to all four of their menus every month (which includes traditional, wholesome, slow cooker / instant pot, and no flour / no sugar). I love that you don’t have to choose, and you can switch it up throughout the month.
Second, they are the only service I’ve come across that offers an entire slow cooker / instant pot plan, which I absolutely love!! I do have both a slow cooker and an instant pot, but I prefer the slow cooker when possible. The feeling of spending a few minutes in the morning getting dinner all ready and throwing it in the slow cooker is amazing! The work is done by 9 am, I can smell it cooking all day, and it’s ready for us at 5 pm!
Third (and this actually surprised me), they allow you to access previous meal plans. Therefore, if you’re not loving the food one of the weeks, you have plenty of others to choose from. I joined in January 2019, and I had access to plans all the way back to April 2018. Not only that, but you don’t lose access to previous meal plans if you cancel!
Fourth, the way their meal plans are color coded is amazing!! Each meal has a color and the grocery list is color coded that way. It makes it super easy to remove a meal and just not buy the ingredients for it.
Who Eat at Home Meal Plans is Perfect For
I think this service would be ideal for a wide variety of people. It’s simple and easy to follow. You definitely don’t need to be a chef, and the meals don’t take too long. I think it would be especially ideal if you love the slow cooker (or instant pot) since they have plans designed for that.
My Personal Experience with Eat at Home Meal Plans
I really enjoyed this service. We used the slow cooker plan. Each weekly plan offers 6 meals, so I removed a couple. Our family doesn’t eat a lot and we enjoy leftovers, so I prefer to cook only 3-4 dinners each week. It was super easy to remove the meals we didn’t want because of how they color code the ingredients list.
Each morning, I put all the ingredients for that day’s recipe into the crockpot, which took no more than 15 minutes. Dinner was ready to eat at 5 pm!! Our family enjoyed the food. I will say that I would get tired of using the slow cooker plan every single week, but I would still have access to the other plans.
Overall, I give this system five stars! Go here to try it for yourself.
