Right now, we are using the gluten free meal plan that isn’t store specific. This meal would actually work on that menu as well, although this time, it’s featured on the slow cooker eMeals meal plan which is priced but not store specific. It can feed a family of 6, and generally costs around $120 per week (or less). That averages out to only $2.86/person per meal! There is also a “For Two People” plan available.
All of the recipes utilize mainstream ingredients, all available at your local grocery store, and appeal to a broad range of tastes and preferences. Yes, my kids eat it!
