Delicious meals delivered right to your door!
HelloFresh is a food company that delivers delicious n’ nutritious recipes with pre-measured ingredients directly to your door each week. They offer 3 different types of boxes: a Veggie Box, a Classic Box, and a Family box that includes child friendly recipes. When ordering a meal plan you can choose how many people you’re ordering for, either two or four people, as well as how many meals you would like to receive per week, between three and five; with the average meal costing about $10.
My wife and I were given the HelloFresh subscription as a gift from my in-laws, and got a couple weeks worth of the three meals a week plan, which currently costs $69.00. The meals were delivered right to our door in a giant box with ice packs to keep the ingredients fresh. Within that box was a package for each day’s worth of meals as well as a booklet containing the recipes
Now $69.00 might sound like a lot of money for 3 days worth of meals, but these were not your typical Spaghetti and Meatballs, or Easy Mac recipes. We were given recipes with names like “Italian Meatloaf with Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Roasted Green Beans, and Garlic Basil Mashed Potatoes”, “Super-Speedy Steamed Salmon with Jeweled Couscous & Yogurt”, and “Lemony Chicken Paillard with Sweet Potato Wedges, Arugula Salad, and Chimichurri” and other stuff that I don’t even know how to pronounce. These are the kinds of meals that if you were to go to a restaurant with your special someone you’d easily be spending $69 just on that one night’s worth of meals.
One of the things I liked a lot about the HelloFresh meal kits was that the recipes themselves varied in complexity but were detailed enough in their instructions that they were borderline idiot-proof. We also have them to refer back to if we want to make them again, which we’ve done several times
I’d recommend the HelloFresh meal-kits to just about anyone. If you’re interested in trying new types of food, if you hate figuring out what to do for dinner, if you want to cook some awesome meals for your significant other, or if you want your significant other to cook you some awesome meals, order yourself a couple days worth of HelloFresh meals!
