What is HelloFresh?
HelloFresh is a service that provides you with chef-curated recipes and pre-measured ingredients to make those recipes in your own home. Basically, they create the recipes, plan the meals, shop for you and deliver all of it to your front door in a convenient box.
HelloFresh has 3 plans to choose from. The Classic, Veggie, and Family Plan. There’s an option if 3, 4 or 5 meals for either 2 or 4 people.
Is it worth it?
Honestly, it depends. If you are one of those people who go out and buy groceries every week you will save money and time using this service but if you’re like me and you’re super lazy and don’t really cook then maybe it’s not worth it. As some days although I had all the ingredients I just ordered dinner or went out as that’s more convenient for me after 16 hour work days,but I must say I spend too much money eating out and in trying (failing hard) to change my eating and spending habits.
Do you have to know how to cook?
No, I have zero cooking skills and I was able to make these dishes using their simple steps. The recipe cards are well written, include pictures and fully disclose all measurements and ingredients so you can easily go to your local grocery and duplicate the dish exactly. Although, they give you all the ingredients you need, I wish they chopped and peeled them for you, (Perhaps, that’s just the lazy me speaking, but I had to grate carrots to make the Carrot Celery Slaw and I don’t own a grater so that was a bit of a challenge for me.)
It take approximately 30 minutes to make most meals.
Would I buy another box?
Yes, the 3 day plan because I don’t cook everyday.
