Here's What I Learned After Trying HelloFresh

I refuse to be like all of my friends and sign up for every food delivery subscription service under the sun. Sure, this year hasn't been the easiest, but my pals have really gone overboard! I'm all for anything that will make my life a little easier, but I don't see the need to be a part of a "bagel of the month" club (yes, that's a thing!).

My friend Morgan has been posting a lot of pictures of delicious food lately and considering she's not the best in the kitchen, I assumed it was down to yet another online food delivery service.. She told me that she signed up for HelloFresh and that it's been helping her learn to cook and save money on takeaway.

I'm terrible at cooking, but even still, I don't want to be locked into any kind of plan. But Morgan told me that HelloFresh is super flexible and had really made her weekday routine a lot easier.

I decided to check out HelloFresh for myself, and I was pretty surprised to learn a few things-


Minimal prep involved! HelloFresh sends you ingredients that are pre-portioned and require little to no prep, so you can have dinner on the table in as little as 30 minutes!

So many recipes! There's up to 25 to choose from each week from tons of delicious cuisines including Thai, Mexican, Italian and more. They have options for vegetarians, fresh and fast quick recipes, family-friendly meals, and even gourmet upgrade options!


Flexible subscription! As I said, I'm not the biggest fan of being locked into a subscription, but with HelloFresh, I'm in complete control. I can skip a week, pause or cancel at any time


Cheaper than the grocery store and take out! HelloFresh works out at just $7.99 per serving.

Good for the environment!HelloFresh eliminates food waste, their packaging is reusable or recyclable, and they have a 25% lower carbon footprint than meals prepared using ingredients from the supermarket

I signed up for a HelloFresh subscription, and it's been a total game-changer. Weekday dinner time is now a no brainer, and I'm eating a more diverse range of foods.

Most of all, it put the fun back into cooking for me. I no longer dread figuring out what to have for dinner, and I'm loving improving my cooking skills. HelloFresh is a meal kit delivery service I won't regret signing up for!
