If there is one thing I’m really terrible at, it’s cooking.
You see, I’m not only a terrible cook, but I hate the entire process of preparing a decent meal.
There. I said it!
I’m a mom and I hate cooking. I’m sure I’m not the only one out there that despises the task.
But of course, we all know that we have little mouths that need to be fed, so we still need to carry on by creating our weekly menus, buying ingredients and cooking those meals, all so that we can hear about how much our kids hate what we’ve cooked.
The good news is that we live in a fabulous modern world where the lives of moms are made easier thanks to online delivery.
If there is one thing you’d know about me by now, it’s that I love online delivery, and what is better than prepacked ingredients that are sent to my doorstep?
That’s where HelloFresh came to the rescue and made my life so much easier and tastier! The beauty of this process is that it saves me from undertaking a lot of steps that are time consuming:
Selecting the weekly menu
HelloFresh does that for you by offering four meals, out of which you’ll select three for the following week. You’ll have the option to choose from Pronto Meals, Veggie Meals and Family Meals.
Buying food from the grocery store
That’s a big one for me as I have a baby and shopping with a him takes forever as I have to stop to feed him and keep him entertained. And now that he’s ready to explore the world he wants to hold onto every. single. item! That’s why I tend to prefer online grocery shopping, and in addition to that I take advantage of HelloFresh services as they cover a big part of the food shopping for me.
Even better, with this process, I’m sure I’ll never forget an ingredient when cooking my meals!
I told you! Life can sometimes be fabulous!
The basic preparation of the food
Now, for my favorite part. HelloFresh sends me the proper quantity of food in an insulated box. This way, I don’t have to hunt around the kitchen to collect all the ingredients. I just need to open the box and voila! All the items that I need are collected together, with just the right quantity (so I don’t waste food this way). What’s more, some of the items are already cut and ready to cook!
All I have to do is then follow the recipe that they send, which is pretty easy to understand and implement. I mean, if I, a terrible cook, can manage to create a good meal out of what HelloFresh sends me, then any other woman can do the same!
What you need to know about HelloFresh
When you select a plan, you’ll have to choose three meals out of the four options that they provide you with. The Pronto plan offers you the chance to select a meal for two or for four. The family meal is made for four. You can pause your service at any time before the deadline requested, which means that if you happen to be away for a week, or if you don’t like any of the meals suggested, you won’t have to keep paying for a service you won’t enjoy.
One more thing. HelloFresh takes into consideration that picky eaters will share the family plan, which is why they hold back on the spice to make sure it pleases the little ones.
So, how about the prices at HelloFresh?
Now, the only thing I can’t argue much about is the price, as that’s very relative to every person’s budget. Prices per meals vary from 10.83 CAD to 13.33 CAD per meal, per person depending on the type of plan that you chose (family, pronto or veggie) and the number of meals in your family.
Therefore, I’ll let you determine whether this solution works for you, based on how much you spend on your ingredients when you shop for food!
If it does work for you and your family, then you just found a great solution to make your life in the kitchen much easier!
