Cooking with Hello Fresh

A big thank you to Hello Fresh for sponsoring this post – as always, all thoughts and opinions expressed are entirely my own.

As a mom, I feel like the one thing I never have enough of is time. The past seven months have seriously flown by! The days go by so quickly and I feel like I never get everything done on my to-do list. One of the tasks I enjoy the very least is grocery shopping… yet, I find myself walking down the aisles of my nearest grocery store every few days. It seems like I always forget something while I’m at the store. Admittedly, there are times that grocery shopping seems like such a daunting task that I just opt for a fast food run. As a wife and mother, I really want to choose healthy foods for my family; if you’re anything like me, you may feel like you need to choose between healthy and convenience. Thankfully, with Hello Fresh I get to have both.

 

I recently discovered Hello Fresh and I’m truly in love! Hello Fresh is a food delivery service that delivers fresh ingredients for meals right to your door! You get to select your meal plan based on your food preferences and household size; you even get to choose the day and exact time that your food is delivered! But no worries if you aren’t home when they deliver, Hello Fresh wraps their ingredients with a special wool and cooling material to make sure everything stays fresh! When I first opened the box, I saw all of the ingredients and felt overwhelmed until I saw that each Hello Fresh box includes a recipe card with step-by-step instructions so that you can prepare the meal to perfection! Oh, and the food is good… like really, REALLY good!

I made the Lasagna Fusilli today and my husband loved it! You get so much food and (thankfully) we have leftovers for the week! It was such an easy process; the step-by-step instructions and having the ingredients readily available and perfectly measured made it a breeze. Something I usually loathe about cooking is how time-consuming it is (let’s face it – we live in a microwave generation)… but the entire cooking process took about 30 minutes. It was fast, painless and (dare I say it) a lot of fun! I love that Hello Fresh truly lives up to its name by delivering fresh and wholesome ingredients right to your door!

I’m looking so forward to trying out more meals from this awesome company! You can order your Hello Fresh boxes here – I know you’ll love it! 

P.S. Isn't he the cutest lunch date in the world?!
