So I am in college and in college its hard to find time to sleep let alone eat a healthy or home cooked meal. And forget going to the grocery store, its like a war zone in there. So we end up eating what ever our hands reach first on the frozen food isle or what ever fast food place is open the latest at night and can easily be consumed in or on the way to the library. Going home and having your mom cook your favorite meal is like precious gold, but now that I’m a senior even going home has become a rarity. So I had to do something.
One night I went to dinner at my boyfriend’s mother’s house. They were talking about this food service called Hello Fresh and it literally sounded to good to be true. Fresh, healthy meals delivered straight to my door and I get to completely by pass the grocery store, of course, I would want to sign up for that!
I will admit it is pricey at $60 a week but my plan serves two people per meal. Essentially that ends up being 6 meals so really its about $10 a meal. About what you would spend on eating out. And the food is fresh, fresher that what you even get for the grocery store sometimes! The meals are healthy and they haven’t sent me anything yet that I wouldn’t eat again. I also only have to go to the grocery store now for things like milk and cereal and things like hot pockets for lunch so it honestly has saved me money.
I really like that it is structured that I know what I am eating each night and that I have everything right there too cook it rather than risking forgetting something and having to go all the way back to town to get the one thing I forgot. I also love that I know what I am getting in each box and if I don’t really want one of the options I can change it online. I can pick my meals weeks in advance and if I need to skip a week for any reason I can it is as easy a pressing a button and I wont even be charged for that week. Each recipe only takes 30 minutes to cook and its actually fun to do. And the best part the clean up is SUPER easy! 10/10 Would Recommend this, my boyfriend and I are literally loving it!
Here is the link: Hello Fresh got check it out for your self. ( Your first box is usually half off so you can try it for $30.) Also here is a picture of one one of the things I have cooked using Hello Fresh so you can see that it really does look like they say it will!
A few of my favorites have been: Maple Glazed Pork Chops, Chicken Cheddar Fajitas, and the Herbed Chicken over Zucchini Risotto (This is what is pictured above). Try it and let me know what you think in the comments! 🙂
