Our menus are a VERY well-oiled machine. They are extremely thought out and purposefully created to make life easier (and healthier) for you. Here are the key benefits of EN:
Reduced food wastage. Buy only what you need and use all of what you’ve got. You won’t be left with half-filled tins, packets of perishable foods, or half-used vegetables that sit in your crisper until forgotten. You don’t need to think about it – we’ve taken care of it all. We aim to significantly reduce domestic food wastage by ensuring our menus are complete for the week and use up all the food you buy.
Save you money. EN will save you money. We equip you to shop with purpose and without waste. Every weekly menu includes a deliberate mix of budget-friendly and fancy foods to keep you satisfied without exceeding your spend allocation.
Give you back time. If you spend approximately 1.5–2hrs on meal prep one day a week, you’ll save anywhere from 4-8hrs during the week (to spend anywhere but your kitchen). For some, that could be almost a whole working day! And that’s just cooking time – you may also gain time from avoiding mid-week shopping and worrying about what to make for dinner, and snacks….everyday!
Less stress. Imagine always having an answer to the dreaded question, “What’s for dinner?” Not only will you now know the answer, you won’t need to waste any energy or time deciding what to cook. You can relax knowing you have already prepared delicious, budget-conscious, family friendly, seasonal food that your family will love!
Better nutrition for you and your family. Our menus are written by nutritionists… with kids! We have battled our way with fussy eaters and struggled to find the line between ‘just eat something’ and ‘nothing but goodness’. We have tried and tested hundreds of recipes (thousands even). And we’ve compiled only the ones that get two thumbs up!
We are also professional sneak-it-in-ers, so all of our recipes have a hidden agenda when it comes to boosting your nutrition. We want to improve the health of your whole family: mum, dad, and kids. EN will help you do better with eating better…without you even having to try!
Food choice freedom. We have deliberately left out weekends from the menus to create some space for you to make your own food choices each week. This is a time for you to satisfy any cravings you may have, enjoy a meal out or a takeaway meal in, or cook one of your favourite recipes.
Our research suggests that weekend meals are typically where people come unstuck when following a meal plan. During the weekends people feel most uncomfortable with restrictions. So, we have removed these from our menus. At this stage we have also removed breakfast and lunch from our menus, if you would prefer to have breakfasts, lunches and/or weekends included in your EN menu, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our goal is to help you, so we’d love to know how we can best do that.
