One of my favorite things about being a blogger is being able to discover awesome companies, and share them with you! I had never heard of HelloFresh before, but when I checked them out I *loved* their mission. Once I actually tried their products, I fell head over heels in LOVE!
One of the chores I dread every week is meal planning. I don’t mind actually cooking the meals we make, but coming up with the ideas of what to make is always a pain. We also try to eat as many “whole foods” as we can, and try not to eat many processed foods, which means more trips to the grocery store for us.
Enter: HelloFresh. This company believes in providing wholesome ingredients WITH awesome recipes TO YOUR DOOR. I’m not even joking. This company can save you SO much time and headache! I wasn’t completely sold until I tried out their recipes, and the verdict was given by the hubby as well. Hello Fresh absolutely hit these recipes out of the park – they were all amazing!
I wasn’t sure how the meals were going to come packaged, because I knew they had raw meat. The package was completely lined with cold packs, and the food was absolutely packaged in the correct materials for safe handling:
The recipe cards were beautifully photographed, and were really easy to follow. It was especially helpful that almost all of the ingredients were already pre-measured. Takes SO much time out of the cooking process!
I even got my husband involved – as documented via Instagram:
The first meal we made was the Beef & Broccoli Rabe tostada with arugula:
Our thoughts: DELISH. This was a different blend of ingredients than we normally use, so it was fun to venture out of our comfort zone. My favorite was the sundried tomatoes and the melted cheese! Mmmm! The portion was also SO BIG – this could’ve easily fed 3 adults.
We made the Turkey Polpette with basil tomato sauce the second night:
Our thoughts: Awesome! This is more what we would typically cook. The meatballs were delicious, and the fresh basil in the sauce was perfect. Again, the portion size was very generous!
And the last night, we made Salmon fillets with cashew crust:
Our thoughts: I’ll be honest – I was least excited for this. I’m not a huge fish fan, but this was the best salmon recipe we’ve made. The cashew crust topping was SO GOOD. I’m 5 months pregnant, but I couldn’t even finish my portion because it was SO much! My hubby didn’t mind finishing up what I couldn’t though
I can honestly say that I LOVE this company. They took the guesswork out of meal planning, made cooking a healthy and hearty meal as easy as they could by pre-measuring the ingredients and providing super clear recipes, AND the recipes all tasted amazing!
Now for the really fun part: HelloFresh is generous enough to offer ALL of you a 30% discount on your first box of food!
