Hello Fresh Makes Life Easier (+ Tastier)

You guys. I don’t want to brag or anything, but I tried a meal delivery service for the first time and I totally rocked it. Sure, Hello Fresh did all of the hard work, but they made me look pretty damn good. 

Normally when it comes to cooking, these days I stick with what I know. When my husband and I first started dating, I tried new recipes and got all fancy in the kitchen. Now, by the time dinner rolls around, my creativity and energy are tapped and I rely on one of the good ol’ standards. (Or cereal.)

Hello Fresh to the rescue. Now I get to look like a top chef (ok, at least like a middle of the road chef) and my family is happy with full bellies. 

I chose three meals: Winner Winner Chicken Orzo Dinner, Creamy Mushrooms with Pork Chops and Bountiful Barley Bowl. I received the box of goods within 1 day, and it was filled with seasonal farm fresh ingredients, easy to follow recipes, all in recyclable packaging. Even better? The ingredients are all pre-measured, so there’s not a lot of waste. 

I’ve been trying to figure out how I’m going to handle having a newborn and a toddler very soon (less than 2 months! WHAAAA?!) and you can bet I’m signing up for Hello Fresh like yesterday! Mama needs some help. 

What do you guys think? Have you tried a meal delivery service yet?


Thank you to Hello Fresh for sponsoring this post. 

Winner Winner Chicken Orzo Dinner. Delicious and totally husband approved. Our favorite of the 3 meals. 

Creamy Mushroom Pork Chops. Much easier than it looks. So good. 

Bountiful Barley Bowl. I’ve never cooked with barley, but I’m now a believer. So healthy, hearty and yummy.

    I have been dying to try this because I think it would so great for WAHM or working mamas. Or just moms in general:)

    The chicken and pork chops look delish! Not so sure about the barley bowl, lol. I’ve been wanting to try one of these subscription boxes. Thanks for sharing!

    I’ve always wanted to try Hello Fresh. The ingredients you received look so good. This might be something to consider.
