Hello Fresh was easily one of the best decisions I’ve made. Like in a really, super long time! Since becoming a grown up and getting my first big girl job, (with like real responsibilities and such) I have slowly grown HORRIBLE at going to the grocery store! There is just no time for it. When I do make the trip, I end up sending money on things I never end up making. It sucks! Being a total foodie, this has left me ADDICTED to fast food and eating out! (When I say fast food, I mean like Panera, these taste buds ain’t CHEAP!) So obviously, MY PANTS DON’T FIT ANYMORE! LIKE NONE OF THEM! Now the only thing small left about me is the size of my wallet! (That felt good to get out) Hello Fresh has helped me to eat balanced, healthy meals; also to just get in the habit of cooking again. The best part is, I don’t even have to think about it.
So if you haven’t heard, Hello Fresh is a meal service delivery company. My BF and I do the 3 meals for 2 people per week plan, (they have others); it comes out to basically $60 a week. I know! Sounds a little expensive, but its like $10 bucks per meal per person. When you think about it like that, it’s a steal! Especially because it’s delicious, the ingredients are already portioned out and it has simple, easy to follow directions! They even have this APP, which being a millennial and all, I OBVIOUSLY love! You can skip weeks, pick your meals, go pork free, beef free, etc. etc. etc!
It arrives on your door step in this cute box! I literally get super excited EVERY TIME it comes, and we’ve been doing this since November, lollll! There is just something about getting a package in the mail that get me excited! Or is that just me?
The booklet comes in the box with all the recipes for the week, in easy to follow steps. The steps are also broken down on that app as well!
This is the setup right before I get to work! I like to keep the booklet propped up for easy access. Also, I have the worlds SMALLEST kitchen. Funny thing is, you probably think I’m exaggerating, and I WISH I were! lol
Next, I pull which ever box I’m cooking out of my fridge. They are like long and skinny boxes.
(Bonus points if you spotted the taco bell sauce pack in my fridge! Whoops!)
I pull EVERYTHING out of the box in the very beginning, and use the box for the trash. That way you can throw away as you go! As soon as an ingredient gets used up, the container/package it was in goes in the box. This makes things SIMPLE! Look how cute all these ingredients are, all perfectly proportioned, awww, lol! This is also another peek at my ZERO counter space!
See the trash box in the left of the pic? Makes clean up a breeze!
This picture does no justice to this meal. My whole apartment has like yellow lighting for some reason. And I was starvinnngg, so I could not wait a minute longer, lol sorry! The steak was delicious with a balsamic glaze and a tangy vinegar cabbage, yummy!
Hello Fresh has been perfect for me! I know what to cook. I know its going to be super good, and easy! It has put more of a structure at dinner time, which my life desperately needed! Honestly, life is a little easier with Hello Fresh. Hahaha, listen to all these feelings I’m having over a boxed meal service! lollll
ANYWAY! I do have some free Boxes to give away! If you want to try Hello Fresh for free, leave me a comment saying “SEND ME A BOX!” and I’ll get you the code!
Well… I will see you guys next time! Oh wait, do you like my new site?? I almost forgot!! I hope you like it because it was a lot of work and doll hairs! Let me know what you think!
K love you. BBBYYYYEEE!
