Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in love, life and everything in between. Hope you have a nice stay!

My First Hello Fresh Box!

Last week I shared with you all how I have been more consistent with working out, but my eating habits SUCK! So, I signed up for meal delivery service from Hello Fresh.

Why did I choose a meal delivery service?

1.       I am a basic cook. My specialties are spaghetti and taco salad and I don’t think I have ever made anything from scratch.

2.       It should save me money. I waste a lot of money weekly because I buy all this crap at the grocery store and it usually ends up in the trash.

3.       End-caps get me every time. Seriously, if you have something you want me to buy put it on an end-cap.

4.       I really hate grocery shopping.

5.       Last, but definitely not least…I want to eat healthier and these meals offer that.

End-Cap Purchase LOL!

Hello Fresh has a few different options to choose from. I chose the classic plan for two people with three recipes per week. The cost is $59.94 a week. That’s roughly $10 per meal. I decided to have a box delivered every other week because I know myself and my life. I am not going to cook three times a week. It would go to waste.  Plus, I like to eat out. Remember #healthynotskinny LOL!

So, let’s get into the meals.

The first meal was Honey Mustard Chicken with Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Zucchini and Onions. I didn’t love this meal. It wasn’t bad I just didn’t love it. With this meal I followed the directions verbatim and I think that’s where I went wrong.

My second meal was Thyme and Honey Pork Chops over Couscous with a Peachy Salad. Y’all, this was so good. It was my first time having couscous and I loved it. I didn’t follow the instructions verbatim this time.  I used everything they sent me, but added more seasonings from my cabinet. I literally couldn’t wait to get home to eat my second meal.

The third meal was Buttered-Up Steak with Roasted Potatoes and Garlicky Green Beans. This was my favorite one. Who knew butter, Dijon mustard and parsley combined makes such a good topping on steak.

My finished product did not look like the picture, but the pictures below show the meals and what comes in the box.

Each meal was under 700 calories, the portions are a good size, the produce is fresh and really good cuts of meat. I will be honest, I was satisfied, but I wasn’t like OMG I’m stuffed. Which, I know is a good thing because you are only supposed to eat until you are full. My new box comes on Saturday and I can’t wait.
