Hi everyone! It’s been a while since I last wrote a blog post and I have to say, I sure miss it a lot!
How’s everyone doing?
**Thank you HelloFresh for sponsoring! All opinions are my own.
I’ve been doing some soul searching and eating lots of food as always. I will save the life update for another post, but today I want to share with you guys my thoughts on HelloFresh, a service that delivers fresh ingredients right to your door with easy-to-follow recipes.
Throughout the day, I think about food as much as I watch cat videos… so that’s 99.99% of my day. I love to cook and eat. However, there are days when my busy schedule doesn’t allow me to go grocery shopping and spend hours prepping and cooking for two. My boyfriend and I always struggle to figure out what we want to cook & eat every day. We have spent numerous evenings asking each other “What do you want to eat?” Please tell me you guys have the same problem whether asking yourself or your partner that question. I believe I found a cure to this problem, and I’m excited to share it with you.
I was recently introduced to HelloFresh. They have made it very convenient and fun to prepare healthy and delicious meals for my boyfriend and I. You can also use HelloFresh to quickly and deliciously entertain your guests. Whatever floats your boat! It’s like a healthy relationship you can always count on to cater to your needs, mood, and appetite. You just tell say when and where! Easy right?
Why is HelloFresh perfect for you?
If you are like me, you spend too much time online looking for recipes and take even longer to find the ingredients at the grocery store – never mind the time spent prepping and cooking after. Sometimes all I want to do is come home to a home-cooked meal and wind down from a long day. However, I never have enough time and end up eating out. It is convenient and all but my bank account and my body hate me by the end of it! This is where HelloFresh comes in; it delivers all fresh ingredients right to your doorstep, all you need to do is follow their directions on how to make the meal. It takes 30 minutes!
Is it really fresh & healthy?
Yes! HelloFresh works with some of the finest family owned and operated purveyors in the country. All of the ingredients I received with my meal are fresh, clean, and ready to be cooked! What I really like is it is so much healthier than takeout! I don’t feel groggy after my meal like I would with take out. I get to control what goes into my body and have a piece of mind that everything is clean. Less chance of taking in unwanted ingredients! My plate always has a balance of carbs, protein, veggies, and fruits. Another great thing is that they do provide nutritional facts before you order your meal for the week so you get a detailed view of what you are going to eat. Absolutely no surprises except for the fact that it will only take you 30 minutes to make such a delicious meal that you never thought you could have made!
Why it is a better option than dining out?
Let me ask you first, how much do you spend on take out for one meal? From my own experience for myself I spend about $12 per meal on average. Now if we include my boyfriend that is and average of $24. Money may not be an issue for you because you pay for the convenience, which I absolutely understand. However, don’t you want to know what goes into your food and how it is made? For me, I enjoy it more when I can save money, know exactly what I am putting in my body, and give me a piece of mind that the food is healthy, clean, and prepared in my own kitchen!

The plans are based on your dietary preferences, schedule, and household size. Whether you are a vegetarian, on a low-carb diet, cooking for yourself, with a partner, or a big family, HelloFresh will be able to accommodate your wants and needs! For me, I am a huge fan of their classic plan for two. Once you decide on your preferences, you have the control to tell HelloFresh when and where to deliver the fresh food. The best thing about it is that you are not bound by a contract as I mentioned above. There is absolutely no subscription! You come and go as you please. Hello! Goodbye! Just like that!

They have many recipes you can select from so you are never bored of the same meal. HelloFresh has a team of chefs and dieticians who work together to create fifteen new recipes each week so you will never have to worry about running out of ideas. They do all the heavy lifting so you don’t have to. They are here to make our lives easier.
You can also access your menu anytime and anywhere, which will allows you to pause your deliveries or to modify your plan!
I hope you guys give this a try because I enjoy it a lot and do plan to keep using their services!
My overall experience has been wonderful!
I learned new recipes, spent quality time cooking with my boyfriend, and created new experiences. I also feel happier and healthier knowing I am eating a balanced meal of protein, carbs, and vegetables while my bank account thanks me for not spending too much.
Lastly, with my busy schedule, HelloFresh allowed me to have more time at night to relax after a long day because I spend no more than 30 minutes preparing a delicious meal! It’s a great use of time if you ask me.
