I really have no idea what the heck has taken me so long to try Hello fresh! Do you keep seeing it float around but neglect to try it? That's been me!! IDK WHY!!! It's one of those things that I have been thinking about, but kept putting off for whatever reason! So I finally was like let me try this THIS week! It was a no brainer for me to at least give it a try, this coupon makes 3 meals for 2 people just TWENTY BUCKS! SO cheap! But I have to say I wish I would have tried it sooner! I absolutely LOVE it! If you’ve never heard of them, this might just blow ya mind.
Hello fresh is a door delivery food service, that delivers perfectly portioned fresh ingredients for you to cook at home. They give you the option to select 3-4 chef crafted meals from a choice of about 10 each week. They have a great variety and include all the nutritional value as you are looking through to choose. So you can look and pick exactly what works for you and your family! This week I selected one pan tropical chicken tacos, crispy frico cheeseburgers and creamy dill chicken. The cheeseburgers were a little higher in calories, but the tacos and chicken were about 500 or so for each meal. I cooked the tropical chicken tacos last night and they were YUMMMMMM!!! Didn't take me that long either. I mean, probably longer than it should have because I've never used a zester before... So when it told me to zest a lime I literally asked Siri! Thomas explained, butttt I still cut myself. Zester 1- Melissa 0. But I honestly enjoyed making them!
Here were some other Perks I LOVE!
Makes dinner meal planning even SIMPLER- 3 nights are already scheduled, shopped for and delivered to my door.
Perfectly portioned. There's virtually no waste. It wasn't small portions either so you might have leftovers for lunch the next day! (Although I ate all three of my tacos! #givemeallthetacos)
All the ingredients come in their individually labeled bag, so I just took the bag out of the fridge and didn't have to rummage through my fridge pulling out the appropriate portions and ingredients. It's not THAT big of a deal, and I keep my fridge pretty organized, but it was just nice not to have to even measure or think about any of that! It was like pretty much prepped and ready to go!
It's fun to try new meals! You feel like you're ordering from a cool restaurant. And I know you have to still make it, but they're pretty simple recipes, and hey you're gonna cook anyway most nights of the week, might as well feel fancy doing it!
Comes with recipe cards that you can keep, so even if you want to add these new found recipes into your mix, you can easily do that!
I also feel like it's worth mentioning that their customer service is top notch. Extremely friendly, prompt and accommodating. That is so important to me!
The biggest thing for me was just being able to try something new without having to think or search. And the first recipe I have tried was SOOOOOOO GOOD! I'm excited to try the rest!! As a reminder, it is subscription based, but it is easily turned off. I didn't think I'd want to keep it on, but I really have loved it that much and am planning on ordering some weeks in the future at full price. With such a busy schedule, it just makes my life simpler, and I'll take that any day!
You should totalllllly give it a try, you'll freaking love it! And for about $20 bucks, why not?! Cheaper than buying groceries at the grocery store this week! This will give you $40 off your first box. Enjoy!
