Most parents will agree that making healthy meals after a long day at work can sometimes feel like more work than the 8 hour day they just put in. Some meals may be easier than others to pull together but let’s be honest, we can’t rely on grilled cheese and soup every night now can we? Once in a while having everything pulled together for me so all I have to do is assemble and cook makes meal time a real pleasure.
I have seen advertisements for several different meal delivery services and the concept to me was something I knew I wanted to try. Luckily, Hello Fresh is now available in Canada and I couldn’t wait to give it a go. Having meals delivered to my door with all the ingredients in their own little box ready for me to prepare sounded amazing after a hard day at work.
Hello Fresh has several different plans available based on your family size and dietary needs. And each week there are different menus for you to try. That is one of the key features that I loved about them. I love trying new recipes to add to our rotation but hate buying all the different ingredients that we don’t normally use unless I know it’s going to be a winner. This way you can try new meal ideas without a ton of leftovers that you will never use again sitting in your cupboards. And you’re not locked into having deliveries every week, you can put your account on hold whenever you need/want to.
Because it is just my son and I, we got the Pronto Box and each box made the perfect size meals to feed the both of us. I really liked the portion size as it was just enough to make us both feel full but not overstuffed. I have a bad habit of making too much food and it going to waste. The produce and meat were as fresh as if I had picked up from the grocery store myself that day.
The 3 meals that we enjoyed were the BBQ Sausage Skewers, Dukkah Steak and Honey Sesame Chicken. I can’t even say which one was my favorite because I loved each one of them. My son tried the sausage skewers and the sesame chicken and he says the chicken was his favorite.
The one thing that I really liked is that each of the meals came with a detailed recipe card so that I can recreate these meals again using our own ingredients.
This service was everything I had hoped it would be. I plan to order again in the coming weeks and especially come the fall when we’re back to school and dinner time can be a little more hectic.
