What is Hello Fresh
Hello Fresh is a subscription service that delivers fresh meals to your door! This box includes the recipes and ingredients with step-by-step instructions. All ingredients are in the box and have been pre-portioned and in many cases, pre-cut!
Veggie Food Box | 2 People, 3 Meals, $12.33 per meal
Pronto Plan | 2 or 4 People, 3 Meals, $13.33 or $11.67 per meal
Family Plan | 4 People, 3 Meals, $10.83 per meal
Free Delivery | More about each box here.
I ordered the Veggie Plan which includes 3 meals that come packaged in their own box. These three boxes are then packaged in a large box that has an insulated liner and ice packs at the bottom of the box. This helps the food stay fresh during it’s delivery time. I actually had to pick up my box a day later than the scheduled date since items cannot be left outside of apartments doors (fire hazard apparently!). I was happily surprised to see all ingredients still intact and good to eat after almost 2 days of being in the box! Keep in mind there was no meat in my box – mainly vegetables and grains!
More about delivery: Hello Fresh delivers to most provinces in Canada on Tuesdays and Wednesday. You pick the day you want it delivered. If you live in a house, you can make a note to the courier to leave it at your door step if you are not home. If you live in an apartment, I suggest having the box delivered straight to the courier pick up location (contact your local courier to set this up) or have it delivered to your workplace.
What comes in each box
Each box comes with the three meals that are all portioned out! The box also contains the recipes for each meal along with step-by-step instructions.
-All recipes scheduled for the next 3 weeks are posted on their website so you see the exact recipes that will be in your box!
-Specifically for the veggie box: This subscription service is perfect for those wanting to try more vegetarian dishes but don’t know what to make other than pasta dishes!
-There is no meal prepping or thinking about what’s for dinner
-Ingredients were fresh in the box
-Recipes were easy and fairly quick to make (30-45 minute dishes)
-Recipes tasted good
-Packaging is recyclable!
-Pricy. Of course you can probably make these recipes for cheaper if you bought the ingredients yourself but this is a subscription service that is about convenience.
Overall I really enjoyed the three meals in my box and found the recipes easy to make. This meal box service is ideal during busy weeks (when no time to meal plan) or even post-vacation when there is no food in the house!
I personally really enjoy meal planning and creating my own recipes. Therefore this subscription service is not something I would get every week but every now and then I think would be really convenient. I also like that you can see the meals coming up so you can choose if you want that week of meals or not.
