5 Reasons Why I Love Hello Fresh

When did grocery shopping become so much of a pain? I honestly can't remember the last time I had an enjoyable trip to Target. Between the tiny humans screaming bloody murder and the picked over produce, I just want to turn around and run out of the store as quickly possible. Then again, that's what I get for trying to grocery shop on the weekend. All I can say is thank goodness for Starbucks!

I try and cook dinner at home Monday-Friday. The weekends are when we like to go out on the town. It's amazing how much money you can save by cooking dinner at home! That's all fine and dandy, but I felt like I was making the same things over and over again. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with having your signature dishes but no one wants to eat it four + times a month. Unless it's tacos or pizza, I could have those two things every single day and be totally cool with that.

Ruth, one of my coworkers, told me about Hello Fresh at the end of June. What a great idea! A box of food that comes to your doorstep with recipes included? Sign me up! I did a lot of creeping to decide which subscription box was best for Jered and me. Hello Fresh just seemed to have the more adventurous menu to choose from. Each week you have five different recipes to look over. You decide what three meals sound the best, and a week later they appear at your door. I alway try and pick one chicken, one beef or pork, and one vegetarian dish.

We have been subscribers since the beginning of July. I honestly can say that Hello Fresh has helped me:
  • Gain confidence in the kitchen
  • Try ingredients that I have never heard of
  • Spend less time grocery shopping
  • Enjoy ingredients that are in-season
  • Add more vegetables to my diet
Here are a few of my favorite meals:

Cherry-Lime Rickey chicken with juniper, barley, and bok choy

Seared steak and creamy chipotle pan sauce with poblano, corn, and crispy potato hash

Shrimp taco lettuce wraps with smoky chipotle beans, charred veggies, and garlic lime crema

Lemony salmon & Cacio e Pepe linguine with green beans, burst tomatoes, and chilies
