What Our Editors Love And Don’t Like About HelloFresh

Our editors are always looking to make our mealtimes more convenient. Let’s face it, no one 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 healthy, nutritious meals.

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 meal kit service that sends you delicious recipes made from fresh, seasonal ingredients, so you can cook at home in no time at all.

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

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

1. Convenience

With HelloFesh’s easy-to-navigate website, you can choose your plan, select your meals, skip, pause or even cancel at any time. Unlike grocery stores, 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 missing a unique spice or sauce to bring your recipes to life…

…and talk about a time saver! With HelloFresh, we can kick back and relax — some of us are catching up on our reading.

2. Variety

When it comes to variety, HelloFresh is a winner. They have 30+ meals to choose from weekly with a range of international cuisines. So, no need to eat that same pasta dish night after night! We quickly fell in love with the Quick Teriyaki Pork & Roasted Sesame Pumpkin with Cucumber & Pear Salad and the absolutely delicious Caribbean-Spiced Beef Chilli with Zesty Coconut Rice & Charred Corn Salad . Dinnerwas on the table in about 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, and HelloFresh has her covered with a range of veggie and plant based recipes each week — what a bonus!

3. Price

Cooking nutritious meals can be costly. Not with HelloFresh - their meals start at only $6.50 per portion — cheaper than the supermarket these days. Plus since you receive precise, pre-portioned ingredients, there's zero food waste.

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

..and one 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. All you need to do is prep your veggies, slide the food in the oven, or straight into a pan on the stovetop. You’ll even learn a few savvy culinary techniques, and thanks to HelloFresh, a delicious dinner will be on the table in 30- ish minutes.

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