Convenience in this day and age is everything. Having the convenience of a healthy meal plan put together ingredients pre-measured out to my door is an everything I’ve ever wanted. As a busy working gal, I have no issue getting help when I need it and in the kitchen - there is a need for healthier food, less stress and more time back. HelloFresh does just that for me.

How it works

Customize your weekly meal plan that suits your life
Schedule your (flexible) delivery to your doorstep
Enjoy seasonal fresh ingredients in less time

Truth be told with no direction I'm actually a terrible cook and rarely do because of bandwidth but surprisingly have churned out 3 gourmet style meals in less than an hour. Here is why I’m recommending HelloFresh to my friends, family…

Simple & Fresh Food

If you are like me, you like simple and easy options for food. Whatever is most convenient doesn’t necessarily mean most affordable or healthy. When you are trying to change your eating habits to more well-balanced diet it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the oh so oversaturated online recipe journals, Pinterest, Food Network, Instagram… HelloFresh keeps it simple, affordable fresh, and healthy. They create the recipes, compile and pre measure ingredients and deliver it to your door.  Easy peasy lemon squeezy. All you have to do is unpack, chop chop and cook. For the healthy folk like myself, every recipe includes the nutritional information and are made with fresh real ingredients - they source ingredients directly from independent producers.

You hate Grocery Shopping

If you are like me, uncoordinated in the kitchen and get overwhelmed by grocery shopping for more than 20 minutes, HelloFresh is something you should consider. I’m the type that gets all sweaty and stressed out in the grocery store. The anxiety starts to set in when I have to battle a crowd to reach for that damn spice, spend over 20 minutes hunting for the most basic ingredient and regret going to the basket instead of the cart where I end up with a contusion on my arm. Having everything delivered to my door saves me my sanity, reduces stress and leaves for less injury.

Time is Money

If your time is limited, you work long hours and just don’t have the bandwidth you should think about giving yourself a little break in the kitchen. The little extra money spent on HelloFresh is worth it - some will disagree but everyone has different wants and financial means. HelloFresh might be able to do your laundry but they do take care of planning, shopping and prepping meals. You may save a few bucks at the grocery store but for myself when adding in the time, stress and convenience I think those extra bucks well spent.
