I finally took the leap and ordered Hello Fresh!
I downloaded the Hello Fresh app onto my phone and picked out my meal plan (you can also order through their website). There are different meal plans for vegetarians and other dietary restrictions but we got the Classic Meal Plan for two people for three days. Since I’m allergic to many things, all the ingredients are listed so I got to pick and choose my meals without being worried about having a reaction.
Hello Fresh shipped the box over two days to my front doorstep. They packed everything into a box in separate bags so it fits easily in the fridge. I love that because I didn’t have to go searching for ingredients. In the box, they placed the meat in between two ice packs so nothing gets contaminated. (It took me 20 minutes to find these because I didn’t know that before.) Everything can be left in the box up to 24 hours after delivery because of the ice. After putting the bags and meat into the fridge, the food can last 4-5 days which is awesome!
Each meal is 30 minutes or less to cook! That’s speaking my language because honestly, I’m not a huge fan of slaving over a meal. All of the ingredients come in smaller portions which is the best since we don’t have a huge bottle of hoison sauce or an extra pound of asparagus leftover. It helps cut down on waste and leaves less of a mess to clean up at the end.
I think Hello Fresh is an easy way to try new things. I don’t enjoy going to the grocery store so I’m happy I could cut down my cost and save the time by ordering Hello Fresh. We tried many things that we normally would not have in the past. I got a lot of questions about portion sizing and if that was enough for two people. Some meals we wanted more and others we had enough leftover for lunch the next day. I would say it depended on the meal but overall we had plenty. We definitely enjoyed ordering from Hello Fresh! We probably won’t get it every single week but it’s nice to have the option when we can plan ahead during busier times of the year. If you want to try it for yourself, use code KAYLAF1 for $40 off your first order! (that makes 3 meals for 2 only $20!) Have fun trying new things and happy cooking!
