If the concept of “eating healthy” conjures up visions of bland, boring diet foods that even your dog won’t eat – think again! It’s time to say HelloFresh to healthy, flavorful foods delivered to your home.
What is HelloFresh?
HelloFresh is a delightful food subscription box service that ships weekly boxes full of tasty recipes (with easy-to-follow instructions) and fresh, healthy ingredients (like vitamin-rich veggies and muscle-building proteins) direct to your home.
They take the hassle out of weekly meal preparation, by providing pre-measured ingredients (in convenient, pre-labeled packaging) in a properly insulated, ice-pack cooled shipping box.
Plus, each recipe features nutritional information, showing the total number of calories, fat, protein, carbs, sugar, sodium, and fiber in each meal. This helps you stay on track with your diet, making it easier to lose weight and get in shape.
If you find cooking to be a time-consuming, laborious process, HelloFresh will simplify and streamline your work in the kitchen. Each recipe is designed to take less than 30 minutes to prepare and cook, reducing the amount of time you spend in the kitchen (which is great news for busy folks, like us).
If you’re looking to spice up your meals at home, HelloFresh will give you a taste of something new and different. To sign-up for their subscription box delivery service, it’s as easy as 1-2-3!
How Does HelloFresh Work?
1. Choose from a weekly menu: HelloFresh provides meat and vegetarian-based recipes, in addition to classic recipes that the whole family will enjoy. Each week, the chefs at HelloFresh whip up new and unique recipes that will keep your taste-buds yearning for more.
2. Get exactly what you need: Each week, you will receive a box containing all the ingredients (sans salt and pepper) that you need to prepare healthy, fresh meals. Within the box, you’ll find each recipe’s set of ingredients separated by individual boxes (that are labeled for your convenience).
3. Prepare amazing home-cooked meals: Add a dose of variety to your daily meals with HelloFresh. Their quick-and-easy recipes make you look like a pro chef (without the hassle and struggle), while providing a dose of diversity to your home-cooked dinners. From Korean-inspired meat dishes to traditional Caesar Salads, HelloFresh offers an interesting mix of weekly recipes to wet your appetite.
Since we enjoy cooking healthy meals, we often stick with tried-and-true recipes (like baked, herb-seasoned chicken with roasted vegetables and brown rice). But, with a busy schedule and limited free time, figuring out healthy ways to spice up our home-cooked meals seemed like more effort than we’re willing to put in.
Not to mention – spending time shopping at the market each week, schlepping multiple heavy bags into the house, and ultimately tossing out unused ingredients (which wastes money) makes the idea of home-cooked meals a cumbersome experience.
For these reasons, and more, food subscription box services (like HelloFresh) definitely give a new (and refreshing) meaning to the idea of home-cooked meals.
During the week that we tried our first HelloFresh food subscription box, we received several tasty and healthy recipes and ingredients to try out, including: Warm Shrimp & Farro Salad (with Green Beans, Sweet Bell Pepper, and Shallot-Lemon Citronette), Herbed Lemon Chicken Caesar Salad (with Tomatoes, Parmesan, and Homemade Croutons), and Marinated Steak Bibimbap (with Zucchini, Crispy Mushrooms, and Pickled Scallions).
Each recipe was not only easy to cook (the simple instructions make it effortless for even novice cooks to follow), they also tasted great!
Having gotten a taste of something new and different this week, we have to admit – HelloFresh has truly opened up a world of endless possibilities when it comes to healthy, flavorful home-cooked meals that don’t take a lot of time to whip up.
When cooking at home becomes this easy, it keeps us inspired to stay healthy and eat well.
Melissa Tischler, a real HelloFresh subscriber, exclaims “HelloFresh has fundamentally changed the way my husband and I eat. Now dinner means preparing fantastic meals that are healthy and fresh. Not only does it feel better – for our wallets and our waistlines – but it’s far more satisfying and fun!”
At a cost of about $9-10 per meal (per person), this affordable food subscription box service makes it easy for individuals, couples, and families to prepare home-cooked meals on a budget.
