5 Reasons to Try Hello Fresh

I’m mixing it up from my usual Friday post and sharing with you guys my recent experience trying Hello Fresh. It seems like I’m one of the last people on earth to try their meals and I’m not sure what took me so long. I take that back. My type-A personality may have had something to do with it (meat sent through the mail?!?). When Hello Fresh offered to send me some meals to try it was a no brainer and I’m so glad I gave it a try. You know who else is glad? My husband. He stood over the sink scraping the last bits of food out of the bowl and into his mouth. And if your spouse hoarding all the leftovers isn’t confirmation enough, here are 5 reasons why you need to try Hello Fresh.

1. Organized Meal Boxes

I can’t tell you how happy it made me to open the box and see each meal packaged in it’s own individual box. There was no rummaging through a big box trying to figure out which ingredients go with what meal. We decided to make the Sesame Beef Tacos first and were able to slide the other two meal boxes easily into the fridge for another night.Hello Fresh Boxed Ingredients

2. Variety of Meals Offered

 I’ll be honest. I was really worried that I wouldn’t like some of the meals. Turns out I had nothing to fear and even a somewhat picky eater like myself found TONS of meals I couldn’t wait to try. My favorite part about Hello Fresh’s meal choices is that they add 10 new recipes each week! I’m lucky if I try one new recipe a month on my own. I’m already drooling over next week’s menu choices.Hello Fresh Recipe Card

3. Everything is included

Even things like oil and garlic powder. It’s the little details people.Hello Fresh ingredients

4. Easy prep with quality ingredients.

It’s amazing how much fun cooking can be when you have everything you need prepped, measured, and ready to go without having to do any of the work 🙂 Now about the meat…I was shocked to find the beef was actually better quality than the meat I had just bought from my local grocery store that weekend. It was also still super cold thanks to 2 ginormous ice packs and a thermal bag which instantly erased my worries about meat being shipped in a box.Women cooking meal in Hello Fresh Apron

5. Time for more important things.

This is my absolute favorite thing about Hello Fresh. Because I’m not spending an hour in the kitchen prepping and cooking dinner, I get to spend that time doing other things, like trying to hide from one wild Ninja Turtle.Little boy dressed as Ninja Turtle with Nunchucks
