Here’s How HelloFresh Helps Me Save Time

Growing up in a big family, we only had the luxury of ordering takeaway once a month. So, I was used to home cooked meals and savoured eating a variety of fresh meals night after night. But then I moved away from my family into the city, and cooking every day was simply out of the question.

I tried to make my own dishes but work constantly got in the way. I barely had time to do my laundry, let alone cook. So, I’d order takeaway far more than necessary. I needed a solution. Luckily for me, my colleagues kept recommending HelloFresh.

But I was unsure about trying a recipe box. Would it be too much hassle to cook from scratch? Would the meals pile up in my fridge because I didn’t have time to prepare them? My colleagues insisted the plans are flexible and that I can pause or opt out if I wanted. So I thought I might as well give it a try.

I took their advice and signed up immediately. I had no idea that home cooking could be done without spending hours in my kitchen.

To discover why HelloFresh is the unexpected essential you need to give you back more time keep reading.

My first box arrived — at my doorstep, thank you HelloFresh! I was so happy. The ingredients arrived pre-measured and individually packed for each recipe I’d selected.

HelloFresh offers 44+ recipes each week that are easy to prepare. The box arrives with simple step-by-step recipe cards that help you put together tasty meals with some recipes only taking 20 minutes.

I started slow with the Chicken and Plum Stir-Fry with Pak Choi, Noodles and Peanuts — it turned out so much better than I expected. In fact, I ate leftovers for lunch the next day. Then I branched out into flavourful, globally-inspired cuisines. I quickly fell in love with the Teriyaki Lemongrass Beef with Jasmine Rice and Carrot Pickle — prepared in only 30 minutes! And did I mention how great it is to have less food waste?

And then I check the HelloFresh 5-star reviews. I’m SO glad there are others out there who love HelloFresh as much as I do.

Living alone used to mean I had to forget about me-time. But quickly enough, HelloFresh has unexpectedly become an essential in my life. And with meals starting at only £1.26* per serving, I save money too!
