I bought the paleo book and made the chicken masala and the sweet potato fries for a dinner with friends last night. It was fabulous! They said it was the best meal we had ever made for them. Can't wait to do them all!
Hi Chef Anna,
I just signed up and am very excited about bring new life to our dinner time. My husband and I have been married for 37 years and raised two boys. My cooking is OLD.
New Life to my Dinners!
I am a newlywed and my husband and I just moved into our first apartment. One of my bridesmaids purchased a one year membership to Ideal Mealz for us as a housewarming present. We just finished our first meal assembly for the month and it was easy as pie. I just opened my freezer and took a picture of the 25 neatly stacked bags of preassembled meals ready to cook. It took up a lot less room in my freezer than I thought it would. And it's so pretty I just took a picture and placed it on facebook! Ideal Mealz will help us stay on budget and still eat out once each week for that special weekend date night! Yay for Ideal Mealz and Yay for me!

Best Wedding Present
I live in Atlanta and we have lots of great restaurants. I like to go out with my girl friends and splurge on occasion but I can not afford to eat out several times each week. With Ideal Mealz I can make the same high quality meals at home and stay within my budget. Last week I signed up for Ideal Mealz and invited my girl friends over for a meal assembly party. I portioned sized the recipes to be large enough that we could all put together meals and they took theirs home to freeze. We cooked the Chicken Maque Choux that night and it was great. We had a blast. Drank a little wine and it was the best girls night out party in months.

Big City Meals without the Big City Prices
I've been following Chef Anna for several months on facebook and twitter and was excited to see her launch Ideal Mealz. I can't purchase her food because I live so far away and she told me it would be too expensive to ship to me. With Ideal Mealz I can make the same foods she makes for folks in Tennessee right in my own kitchen. And I only shop once each month. I'm an airline pilot so I have a crazy schedule. I look forward to coming home in the evening and eating in the peace of my own home, healthy, delicious food. Thank you Chef Anna for Ideal Mealz.

I'm a personal chef now
I purchased a 6 month subscription to Ideal Mealz after I tried my $5 trial because my husband loved the food! I can't wait to try the full menu. And my husband helped me preassemble the food without my even asking. Thank you!

My husband loves it!
My wife is a stay at home mom and she home schools our 5 children. She has more to do than she can grace over! She learned about Ideal Mealz while researching fun things to do with kids on the Internet and mentioned it to me. She seemed very interested but didn't know if we could fit it into our budget. So I suggested we purchase the $5 trial and see how it works.
On our cooking day, she used the grocery list Ideal Mealz created to shop while I stayed at home with the kids and we cleaned the kitchen and cleaned out the fridge and freezer to get ready for the cooking and storage of meals.
When she got home, we set up our production line with the ingredients she purchased and everyone got a recipe. The younger kids paired up with an older sibling. In 30 minutes we were finished prepping the food and pre-assembling all of the meals. All that remained was the cooking on the night we eat.
The night before we cook the meals, we remove them from the freezer and place in refrigerator. They literally take 10-30 minutes to cook each night. No more decisions about what to have for dinner, and will the kids eat it. They love the meals because they helped put them together.
At this point we have eaten all of the meals. And they were good. Needless to say we are really excited and my wife is very happy with me.
My wife did the math on the week of food we purchased and we saved money with Ideal Mealz. She estimated that we would save significantly more than we spend if we purchased Ideal Mealz. And the time savings and no hassle factor aren't measured in dollars but we understand their value.
I've purchased a 1 year subscription for her as a surprise and she was THRILLED. I'm very glad she found Ideal Mealz!

My sister told me she is using Ideal Mealz for her family and she really likes the approach. She claimed to be saving significant time and money. She purchased a 1 month trial for me.
I figured I had nothing to lose by trying it. So I did and I'm pleasantly surprised. I involved my children, I'm a single mom, in the processing of pre-asembling the meals and they thought it was really fun. And they ate the meals when we cooked them. Some of the ingredients were things they wouldn't try before Ideal Mealz. I really think the fact that they were involved in the process of putting the meals together made them want to eat the food. They were proud and I'm proud of them!
Thanks sis. I purchased a 1 year subscription!

I was skeptical
Thank you Ideal Mealz for saving my family both time and money! I've always wondered how I could cook once each month without spending a week planning in advance! I'll be a lifelong customer.
