Healthy Meals all Week Long with HelloFresh #HelloFreshLife

For many busy families it is not easy to prepare and cook a healthy meal every night of the week. Even with me working from home I need to plan ahead to get a filling, nutritional meal on the table every night. Throw in basketball and swimming and our schedules get a bit hectic. Sometimes it is easier to grab something on the run or have the kids each make their own when they are hungry. This never ends up with a good ending as they are limited on skills and time themselves.

So when I heard about HelloFresh I know I had to check them out. A meal delivery subscription service that sends all you need to create a yummy and healthy recipe in very little time in your home. My kids are all very picky and often shy away from trying new things. But if it saved me time I was willing to give it a try.

We received the family box that contained ingredients for 3 recipes. The package arrived with ice packs in a cooler box right to our door. Each recipe was divided into its own box with the exact measurements needed for each ingredient. My kids loved seeing the tiny little bottles with different liquids in them. It was fun because my youngest really wanted to help me make dinner after seeing how everything was boxed up.

Our box arrived with three delicious recipes inside as well as everything needed to create the meal. Everything was fresh and individually packaged. As a leading meal kit delivery brand that’s only been in Canada for the past year, I was surprised how detailed the box was.

Every week, HelloFresh sends customers easy-to-follow recipes created by a team of in-house culinary experts, plus all of the ingredients perfectly portioned, so they can create healthy home-cooked meals without the associated hassle. 

Below you can see some of the recipes we made from our delivery.

Beef Stroganov

A pork stir fry

Beef Tacos

The insulated box arrived with smaller boxes inside storing each recipe. There were large ice-packs inside to keep everything at a safe cool temperature. The bright colourful brochure gave step-by-step instructions on how to prepare each meal. There was an ingredient list as well in case you mixed up the boxes contents or wanted to recreate the meal later.

Not having to shop for specific items was great. I also like that there was no waste. Sometimes I would but a spice for one recipe to just not use it all. With HelloFresh there was exactly enough for each recipe. Each recipe was full of fresh veggies and had a great mix of colour and flavour.

The family box was a great option for us as it gave us 3 meals for 4 people with good sized portions. The box can be ordered for $129.99. There are also boxes for couples in a hurry. The Pronto plan is great for 2-4 people and the recipes take less than 30 mins to prepare and cook. There is also a veggie box for anyone who does not eat meat. Check out their site for details and prices.
