Cooking dinner in the Jones house just got SO much easier. We recently starting using HelloFresh to eliminate the stress of meal planning, and to save money by not going out to eat every night. With two small children at home, quick and easy meals are a MUST. HelloFresh has given us convenient, healthy, and delicious meals that the whole family can enjoy. I figured I would do a series of blog posts introducing you to HelloFresh, and why we love it so much! Lets start with an introduction:
When you open your box, you will have recipe cards, ingredient bags, and meat. The meat is kept separate from everything else, which I love. The paper bags are recipe-specific, and have pre-portioned ingredients. The ingredients are high-quality, sourced straight from the farm. The meal kits conveniently fit in your refrigerator, until you are ready to cook them. The recipe cards are easy to follow, with clear nutritional info.
When it comes to cooking, I am far from a chef. In fact, until HelloFresh, I rarely cooked (unless it involved a slow cooker recipe haha). These meal cards are step by step instructions, you cannot mess up! They even have pictures above the instructions, giving you visual guidance. On the front of the recipe card, you are given the prep time, cook time, and calorie count. On the back of the card, along with step by step instructions, you are given an ingredient list. I love saving these recipe cards and ingredient lists, so that I can re-create the recipes in the future.
Not only are they simple to make, most of them are completed in 30-45 minutes. I have learned that if I do some of the chopping/prepping earlier in the day, the cook time is always 30mins are less. I love having dinner ready and on the table in under an hour. And let me tell you, these dinners are DELICIOUS! I have not tried one I have not liked. I am not going to life, at first glance, my husband and I have been skeptical about some of the meals. But once we cook them and taste a bite, they are always SO good. HelloFresh knows what they are doing when they create delicious, unique recipes!!!
To conclude this introduction post, I am going to list a few more reasons why we love HelloFresh:
- they give generous servings, especially the meat portions
- there is no commitment, you can skip weeks and cancelling is very easy
- their recipe selections have 5 star reviews
- the meals are FRESH and AFFORDABLE – 2 must haves in our home!
