HelloFresh Helped Me Stay Organised - But Not In The Way You Think
I try and stay organised day in and day out, but lately life's just been getting in the way. I get so busy with life, I completely forget to start working out, journaling, organising my house, and doing all the amazing things I want to do (finally write that book, maybe?).
It’s hard because I am not a morning person and after work, I spend most of my time cooking, cleaning, and then I head to bed. I know I need to be more realistic and narrow it down, so I've decided to focus on one thing: cutting down my cooking time.
Ordering takeout can be time-consuming in itself and it’s not sustainable for my wallet or my waistline. I really wanted to see if a meal kit could help. Many of them claim you can cook dinner in as little as 15 minutes, but I didn’t believe it!
According to reviews, the most reliable and valuable meal kit is HelloFresh. HelloFresh starts at $5.00 per portion, which is super affordable, and the majority of their meals are ready in about 30 minutes or less. If that included prep, I’d be happy.
I ordered a week’s worth of meals and got to pick out my recipes. There are delicious cuisines from all over the world like Ginger-Lemongrass Pork Bowl with Apple Slaw, Garlic Rice & Peanuts and they rotate every week.
My first box arrived with everything labelled and packaged individually. I stashed the other two meals in the fridge and started cooking.
Thankfully, the time includes prep, and you don’t need to use all your pots and pans, so I wouldn’t have to spend forever cleaning up either.
I made my first meal and it was ready exactly when the recipe said it would be ready! I couldn’t believe it. But better than that, it was delicious! The vegetables were super fresh and I really enjoyed my meal.
Right after dinner, I was able to tackle some organisational tasks I’d been putting off for months, and I even got in a 30-minute workout! Then, when I was tired, there was still plenty of time to sit on the couch and watch tv with my partner.
Staying organised and on top of everything is hard, but when I eliminate one task from my day, I’m easily able to replace my time with the more productive and creative tasks I’d been wanting to do for years.
HelloFresh is the solution to opening up time in your day so you can do what you really want, while providing delicious, nutritious meals that power you!
