3 Reasons We Love HelloFresh And 1 Reason Why We’re Hesitant

Our editors are always looking to make your family’s lives easier – including searching for answers to the age-old question, “what's for dinner?”.

Let’s face it, no parent has the time to whip up a home-cooked meal every night, it’s far too much work. But it’s also important to eat nutritious dinners — especially when your kids are growing.

So we scoured the internet for ways to enjoy tasty, balanced meals without wasting hours in the kitchen or breaking the bank. We’re happy to introduce you to HelloFresh, a recipe box delivery service that sends you seasonal recipes made from fresh ingredients you can cook at home in no time at all.

We rolled up our sleeves, tied our aprons and tried HelloFresh ourselves.

Here are 3 reasons why we love it and 1 reason that made us a bit hesitant at first:

1. Convenience

With HelloFresh’s easy-to-navigate website, you can choose your plan, select your meals, skip, pause or even opt-out at any time. Unlike supermarkets, HelloFresh delivers pre-portioned ingredients in individually packed bags right to your door. You never have to worry about what’s for dinner tonight or if you have the right ingredients.

And talk about a time saver. With HelloFresh, you have so much more time in the evenings to help your children with their homework or get some chores done.

2. Variety

When it comes to variety, HelloFresh is a winner. They have over 60 meals to choose from each month with a range of international cuisines and lots of kid-friendly options –.no need to eat that same pasta dish night after night! We quickly fell in love with Chilli Chive Roast Chicken with baby spinach and boiled potatoes and the absolutely delicious Spiced Beef Fajita bowls with charred veg and lime rice. And it was on the table in less than 30 minutes — much quicker than ordering takeaway. Don’t worry, each recipe arrives with a simple, easy-to-follow card that makes cooking foolproof.

One of our editors is Vegetarian, but HelloFresh has a number of recipes each week just for her — what a bonus!

3. Price

Cooking nutritious meals can be costly. Not with HelloFresh, their meals start at only €2.50 per portion after the discount — cheaper than the supermarket these days. And since you receive precise, pre-portioned ingredients, there's almost zero food waste.

By signing up for HelloFresh, our monthly budgets have actually declined — we save a ton. Some of us are buying new clothes, or putting money aside for our holidays.

And 1 Reason We’re Hesitant - We still have to cook

For those who hate cooking, HelloFresh might be daunting. But the step-by-step recipe cards make it super simple – your kids can even join in! All you need to do is prep your veggies, slide the food in the oven, or cook right on the stovetop. You’ll even learn a few savvy culinary techniques, and thanks to HelloFresh a fantastic dinner will be on the table in as little as 30 minutes.

HelloFresh saves us time and money, so if you’re looking for a convenient way to eat more wholesome meals, sign up today!
