This week is going on my second week in my new apartment. Last week, being my first week, I opted to try HelloFresh for my week night meals, to save time and a bit of money. HelloFresh is pretty expensive but if you know someone who has tried it, chances are you can get a discount which was the case with me.

So what happens is, you sign up for HelloFresh, either by coupon code or you just pay the regular amount, and then you get to customize your box/recipes. I opted for 3 meals for 2 people.

The box comes refrigerated which is great and was waiting for me when I came home from work!

hello there

Each recipe came with it’s own card and step by step direction. I invited my new guy friend over to help me cook the first meal and we had a great time, also the food was really good too!

Walnut Crusted Chicken

I really enjoyed all 3 of my meals and it was super easy to make them all. I would love to keep going with it, but I just can’t afford $60/week on just dinner. Anyways, here is my end result and it really was delicious! Sorry my pictures aren’t that great!

I’m not a big carrot fan lol

So are you a fan of HelloFresh or Blue Apron? I would seriously make these recipes again, they were yummy!

    I’ve been curious about Hello Fresh as I’ve seen some other friends give it a try too. My husband loves to cook though so I don’t know how practical it would be for us, but if we had a week where he was too busy to do so I think this could be helpful!

    We did a few weeks of HelloFresh off and on. Overall, we really liked it. We can’t swing $60 a week for dinner either, but getting the box and the recipe cards inspired me to start meal planning, so that was a plus!
    That chicken looks great!

    I love HelloFresh! I’ve tried both them and Blue Apron, but prefered HelloFresh. I’m not sure if it was the meals we got, or the ingredients, but you’re right that it is pretty expensive. It gave us some great cooking ideas though and got us out of our normal rut.

    60/week is a lot but I am happy you got to try it out. It looks yummy!

    I’ve never tried any food delivery service before. I adore cooking, so I’ve never needed a service like this before, but I might give them a try!
