I have always really enjoyed cooking and trying out new recipes but what really puts me off is having to buy ingrediants that I know I will probably never use again or having to chuck away.
I also liked the idea of having meals delivered to your door but I wanted to actually make them myself and not just heat them up in the microwave.
So when we stumbled across Hello Fresh from a coupon that was included in one of my wifes deliveries. I forget who it was now, but it was a £25 off coupon to trial Hello Fresh.
We thought we would try it out for 6 weeks leading up to our holiday to the Maldives in attempt to eat healthier.
Hello Fresh offers 3 types of recipe boxes Classic (2, 3 or 4 adults) Vegetarian (2, 3 or 4 adults) Family (2 adults and 2 children)
We had the classic box and started with 5 meals a week but after a couple of weeks we dropped down to 4 meals a week as we found we usually had 1 left over from going out or getting in late from work. The cost for 4 meals a week for 2 people is £41.99, which works out a £5.25 per meal.
Now I must admit this did sound quite expensive when we first signed up and if it had not of been for the coupon I probably would not of tried it. However, I have to say the meals are really good value and quite big, sometimes with leftovers for lunch the next day. Our weekly food shop bill has also dramatically decreased as were only really buying bits for breakfast and no longer buying random stuff that will do not need.
Inside your box
Our Hello Fresh food box is delivered on a Monday when I usually work from home. However they will leave it outside your front door or in a safe place if you miss your delivery slot. You get a text message with a couple of hour time slot when you can expect delivery.
