The Details

HelloFresh offers 3 days of meals for 2 people (this is what ‘a week’ consists of). Additionally, there is a 4 person meal option.

The meals range from 500-800 calories, include farm fresh ingredients, and offer a Flexible Subscription option.

All for $10.75 per meal including shipping. $69 per week (per their website FAQs)

($9.08 per meal for Vegetarian options.)

The Pros

~ Farm Fresh ingredients, including hormone free meat.

(AND Love Beets…ya gotta love Love Beets! Just the name is cool, then you taste them… yum!)

~ Quick prep recipes.

~ Can choose 3 of 5 meal options per week. So, you’re not ‘boxed’ into the 3 meals they choose for you!

~ Beautiful Recipe card booklet with pictures of completed dishes. Features a “Let’s Talk About” page on the back : Grains, Beans, Leafy Greens, Nuts & Seeds, etc.

~ One can choose a Vegetarian Option, which is slightly less expensive.

The Cons

~ There is no ‘Dietary Profile’. Though, one can chose to go with the Vegetarian option, if needed.  We do have a few restrictions…some Gluten-Free, some Spices, and some Seafood. Luckily, we can choose out of 5 meals, so I pick three meals that are more catered to our needs and modify as desired.

The Goods

~ Most meals took about 35 minutes to prepare.

~ Meals were acceptable to most of my family’s tastes.

~ Meals could be Gluten-Free!

~ I chose recipes that would get my foodie brain thinking about new ways to cook.
