I am currently working 4 days a week, helping my husband with his business, have two children, a dog, a massive pile of washing and a never ending to do list (sound familiar anyone?). Anyway, I have been running out of time to think of delicious and healthy meals, I feel like I am always cooking the same thing and the thought of meal planning hurts my brain.
Recently, I had the opportunity to try HelloFresh and let me tell you, I wasn’t disappointed. No hectic trip to the shops, I strolled out my front door and picked up the box which contained our meals. Inside the magical box there are brown paper bags, each bag has all the ingredients for a healthy dinner and there is a recipe card that is super simple to follow. Just having the box delivered made me feel relieved knowing my meal planning was done for me and I had everything I needed for dinners.
The recipes vary each week but some that had were – Easy lamb and pine nut filo parcels, Mackenzie’s Mexican chicken carne and thyme and garlic chicken. Each meal was really easy to put together, all the ingredients were fresh and my hubby ( who is a big eater) was very impressed with the portion sizes. It was so good to come home from work knowing that dinner was ready to go and would be on the table before the kids have a chance to complain about being starving. As a bonus, I now have some new recipes to add to my reportage and picked up an amazing idea of adding cauliflower to mashed potato. Scarlett despises the thought of most vegetables so hiding them in food is a must, she loved mashed potato and didn’t even realise that it was full of cauliflower #winning.
I found all the meals to be easy, yummy and pretty flexible. You can adjust them to suit your taste, even add or leave out ingredients. HelloFresh was a real help to me for after work, weeknight dinners and you can start, change or postpone anytime. No need to worry about being locked into a contract, like that gym membership we all started with good intentions but never use. It’s also good to get some dinner inspo for when you feel like you are always eating the same thing.
