3 Reasons We Love HelloFresh And 1 Reason Why We Were Hesitant

Our editors are always looking to make our eating habits 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 dinners.

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 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 triedHelloFresh ourselves.

Here are 3 reasons why we love it and 1 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 opt out at anytime. 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 missing a unique spice or sauce that brings your recipes to life.

And talk about a time saver. With HelloFresh, we 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 Sticky Ginger Beef and Rice Bowls with Marinated Veggies and Snap Peas and the absolutely delicious Cheddar Ranch Chicken Burgers with Roasted Potatoes. And it was on the table in about 30 minutes — much quicker than ordering takeout. 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 $5.25 per portion — cheaper than the supermarket these days. And since you receive precise, pre-portioned ingredients, there's 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 makes it super simple. 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 30-ish minutes.

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