Simplify your busy life with eMealsI’m such a sucker for Slow Cooker meals. They are so easy to make and great for working families that rush home after a busy day and the first thing out of everyone’s mouth is, whats for dinner? eMeals now has a great Slow Cooker meal plan to mix it up from the regular roast and potatoes. I’ll be switching my account over to give it a try! I have a whole Pinterest board of Slow Cooker Recipes that I’ve been collecting, can’t wait to try some of these new ones. Like this Ham, Kale and Navy Bean Stew.

 Ham, Kale and Navy Bean Stew - Slow Cooker meals

The slow cooker eMeals meal plan is priced (though not store specific), feeds a family of 6, and generally costs around $120 per week (or less). That’s only $2.86/person per meal! For those of you with smaller families, there’s also a For Two plan available. The recipes utilize mainstream ingredients, all available at your local grocery store, and appeal to a broad range of tastes and preferences.

This delicious Ham, Kale and Navy Bean Stew is served over homey Cheese Grits, and appears on this week’s Slow-Cooker Classic Meal Plan. The eMeals team devoured the leftovers for lunch, and it would freeze perfectly. If you’re interested in learning more about the convenience of year-round slow-cooker cooking, check out the meal plan here.
