How HelloFresh Saves My Weeknight Dinners

I love to cook. But you know how it is, between work and social obligations, finding the the time to shop and cook can be hard, not to mention expensive. I love trying new new dishes and different cuisines, but by the time I research recipes and grocery shop, I’m too tired to even cook anything! And the times that I do, I always make way too much and I’m left with a ton of waste, which I really hate.

On weeknights, I either end up making something super basic and quick, or ordering take out, which is not good for my wallet or waistline! I’ve heard the buzz surrounding meal kits, so when I got the chance to try HelloFresh, I was super excited.

They send you all of the pre-portioned ingredients you need to cook a delicious meal at home. After looking at their site, all of the food looked so good. You can choose 2, 3 or 4 recipes a week, and they have awesome add-ons like garlic bread and desserts.

The hardest part about HelloFresh is picking what recipes you want- everything looks so good! There’s over 20 recipes a week to choose from, and they have vegetarian options, low calorie meals, as well as chef-curated and gourmet selections. I chose the Amazing Apricot Chicken, Louisiana Style Tilapia and Crispy Cheddar Chicken.

When my HelloFresh box arrived, I loved how the ingredients for each recipe was in separate little paper bags. I was pleasantly surprised at how fresh all of the produce was, too. After a super long day, I was so tired but excited to try one of the meals. I started with the Amazing Apricot chicken. It was so easy thanks to the easy to follow recipe cards, the whole thing took around 30 minutes. I also like that you can see the full nutritional value of each recipe on the cards. It was so delicious, way nicer than my usual takeout from my local restaurant. Plus, I had enough leftovers for lunch the next day.

I absolutely LOVED the Crispy Cheddar Chicken with Loaded Bacon Mashed Potatoes & Asparagus. The meat was so tender and flavorful, and even though this recipe took a little longer (around 40 mins) it was so worth it. Such a great dish, and a lot easier to make than I expected.

HelloFresh is the perfect solution if you’re trying to make more home cooked meals. It saves time, money and it’s great for sharpening your cooking skills. The best part is the flexibility. You can tweak or pause your plan at any time, or add on additional recipes if you have people coming over for dinner. Meals start at $8.99 per serving, so much more affordable than takeout. If you’re super busy and want to save money but love a home cooked meal, HelloFresh is perfect for you.
