Disclosure: I received the Family Box from HelloFresh on multiple occasions to help facilitate this review. All opinions noted are those of my own.
I don’t know what it is about this Fall, but I have not been at all compelled to cook. For me that is odd. I typically love spending time in the kitchen preparing meals.
However, it feels like ever since the start of this school year there has always been something interfering with my meal prep time. Whether it be sickness, extracurricular activities… something always comes up.
After resorting to takeout far too many times, it became apparent that we are in a weeknight dinner rut. Something had to give.
Many people suggest doing a weekend grocery shop and devoting Sunday to meal prepping for the week. Which is a great idea, but not at all up my alley. Rather I took to stocking my freezer with frozen meals, like lasagna and shepherd’s pie. While relying on meal subscription delivery services, like HelloFresh, for the remainder of the meals for the family.
By doing this we have found that we have cut back on how often we order take out, and are continuing to eat fairly healthy meals that are easy to prepare and delicious. The best part about HelloFresh? They provide you with the easy to follow recipe and the fresh ingredients that are all pre-measured and pretty much ready to go; you may need to do a little chopping of produce, but nothing intensive. You don’t even have to step foot into a grocery store – it’s all delivered to your door!
This service has really worked for us during those weeks when I just knew getting dinner planned and on the table wasn’t going to be an easy feat, and the weeks when I knew I could pull it off.. I just skipped the delivery. No questions asked.
If you ever find yourself stuck in a dinner rut, like me, don’t hesitate to try the HelloFresh life. It may not be inexpensive, but it isn’t overly expensive either. With the family plan starting at $10.83 per meal, you will receive kid-friendly, healthy home-cooked meals that you will be able to ready and have on the table in less than 30 minutes. Providing you the peace of mind that regardless of how busy life gets, you can still sit down as family to a healthy meal.
