Let me start off by saying this isn’t a sponsored post and I was not asked to review this by Hello Fresh. I’ve been getting Hello Fresh for quite some time now, so I figured others may be curious if it’s worth it for their families, and well, to see what’s in the box.
And how do they keep it from spoiling before it gets to you? Well, better said than read, so check out my thoughts on Hello Fresh this week…
The meats: Chicken, Ground Beef, & Pork Tenderloin.
Hello Fresh usually has some of the best tasting meats around. Their spice packets and meat quality is why almost all of their recipes are fantastic and it keeps me coming back for more.
Here is the first recipe that I cooked and promised to show. These were the bagged ingredients for this meal:
Cheddar Chicken Fajitas: 30 min recipe
Figgy Balsamic Pork: 30 minute recipe
The beef I received was an off color than usual and I was surprised as I never had a meat issue with them although I have received some old veggies. I’m still not convinced it’s spoiled, but rather be safe than sorry especially since I’m sick and congested right now so I can’t use the smell test.
I contacted them through the chat in the app and was given a credit back which was really helpful. It’ll apply towards my next order. For now, I plan to buy some beef from the store and cook up three Spaghetti Ragu as intended. Stay tuned!

Save $40 off of your first box! Unlimited option choices and add on features too. With this deal your first order of 3 meals is less than $20 including shipping.
They do set you up for a monthly subscription (card required) but you can easily skip and unskip weeks if you stay on top of it like I do (you can skip up to 5 weeks in a row in one shot, even more once they open up the week. It’s like a set it and forget it). OR you can cancel immediately after your box delivers but I do enjoy getting them when I feel like it, so I keep mine going.
What else is in the box? I promised I’d share, so here is what’s in the envelope this week. It changes weekly, and although I like to look, I’ve never actually gotten any of the items they’re trying to sell. One subscription is enough for me a week lol!

I have to honestly say that while I like the recipe and it all being together idea, the portions in the box were way to small for my house. None of us overeat or are big people but we got a little tiny bag of pasta in ours that was just enough for my at the time 11 year old. The shrimp was a package of like 10 smaller sized shrimp.
I agree with some of the meals, the portions are very small. Some I am left with extra I think it just depends on what it is. We only get the 2 person meal and split it between 3 people.
Looks great, never tried hello fresh, heard good things about them though. Great size.
