LONG time no chat! Well just a quick update, I had my baby boy January 9th, 2017 and ever since then I have taken a break from blogging in order to adjust to being a mom of two. I must admit it is really not as easy as all those mom bloggers make it seem to be. This is where Hello Fresh comes in!
Hello Fresh provides you with pre-planned healthy meals, fresh ingredients, and easy to follow instructions. All the ingredients you will need come pre packaged and all you have to do is cook! I am very thankful that I was able to partner up with Hello Fresh and try out one of their subscription boxes. There was no prep time, no measuring, no rummaging through my pantry for a specific ingredient and most importantly no wasting ingredients. They literally do all the work for you and all you have to do is the bare minimum!
When you first receive your box, you will see that all of the meals come in separate boxes with the meal name and all the ingredients you will need. Which is perfect because all you have to do is place them in your fridge and you are all set!
The first meal we tried was the Honey Dijon Glazed Salmon. Now, I am not a fan of seafood, the only seafood I will eat will be shrimp so I was hesitant to try this out but I did and to my surprise I enjoyed it. The salmon didn’t have that fishy taste and it was so easy to make I would definitely go out an buy all the ingredients to try this meal again.
Next, we had the Balsamic Fig Chicken. There is nothing negative I have to say about this meal. I had never had sweet potatoes before nor did I ever make a sauce from scratch but I really liked it. I almost felt like a professional cook! and the meal was very good.
Last but not least, we had the Italian Meatloaf. Again, not a fan of meat but I gave it a shot and I must admit that this was my favorite meal. The sun dried tomatoes gave the meat a nice sweet taste and the mash potatoes with the green beans are always a hit in my house.
All in all, I really loved the ease of preparation, the cook time, and the fact that I didn’t have to think about what I was going to make for dinner! Hello Fresh made everything so easy and so convenient that I would definitely try out their services again. I really wished that I had a box waiting for me when we got home from the hospital but I suggest that you give them a try! I promise you won’t regret it.
