- We eat the same things week after week!
- We can't eat fresh foods because I don't have time to go shopping frequently!
- I'd like to eat healthy, but I have no idea what to fix!

I was lucky enough to receive a shipment of meals from HelloFresh and it came just in time for me to put off grocery shopping for another week. :) I was sent all the ingredients (and recipe cards!) to make:
- Seared salmon, crushed new potatoes, wilted spinach, tomato dressing
- A well behaved Thai red curry with chicken and toasted cashews
- Super food quinoa salad with roasted vegetables and chicken
We've made 2 out of the 3 recipes so far and they have been REALLY good! Each has taken me just a little over 30 minutes to prepare.
I have LOVED using this service! The cost for 3 meals for 2 people (which, for us, we had left-overs after each meal plus my daughter ate as well) is $69.99. Now, the first time I told my husband that price his eyes got big and he said, "I'd never pay that much!" That's when I broke it down for him:
- Each meal costs about $23--far less than we'd pay for 2 meals at a restaurant
- Meat is not cheap! On top of that, many times a recipe calls for ingredients that I need to buy, but only use a tiny bit. For example, last week I made something that called for 2 tablespoons of buttermilk and had to buy a whole half-gallon...the rest will go to waste unless I find another recipe for it!
- Each meal is MUCH healthier than the cheap, quick, processed meals we buy at the store
- Each meal is more filling because it is healthy
- When you are eating healthy foods, YOU are healthier, so in the long run, you'll spend less on medical bills.
Honestly, you really should try this! Hello Fresh is a brand new service, so right now its available in a limited area on the East Coast. When you visit Hello Fresh, you can input your zip code to see if it is available where you live!
I'm also hosting a giveaway on my Facebook page today for 1 free shipment (3 meals for 2 people). It will kick off at approx. 12 noon, EST. Don't miss it!
