On an average a person spends 90 minutes on weekly grocery shopping. If you could get those 90 minutes back, what would you do with them? Spend time with your family? There is so much I would do if I could get an extra ninety minutes a week. In fact, I timed how long it took me and my husband grocery shopping and it was actually insane. Don’t get me wrong, I love spending time with my husband and grocery shopping is one of those things we do together, but we could be doing something else. Mr. Bite and I are on two totally different diets, so it becomes a chore not only to cook meals, but to plan out the week and shop for those meals. Hello Fresh is a wonderful way to not only get the meals that I can enjoy, but not have to worry about getting all those ingredients.
Hello Fresh is a food box that delivers fresh ingredients every week. Not only do they send you the best ingredients but you also receive recipes to help you prepare stunning meals, effortlessly and in a timely manner. Since I can’t tolerate meats, I decided to try their Veggie box. I was very impressed with the freshness of all the ingredients and how they included everything you would need to make a stunning dish, that is sure to impress. Not only is the ingredients included, but everything is pre-measured! In my box included three meals, each was in its own plastic bag, so each item was easy to find for that particular recipe.
The recipes were very easy to execute and provided a great learning experience for different techniques and flavors. I had so much fun following the steps and ending up with a perfect dish to enjoy. The first dish that I made was the Spring Tortellini Gratin with Basil Pesto & Asparagus. Literally everything you needed to execute this dish was included.
This dish was very simple to prepare and not only did I enjoy it, but my husband did as well. He was having chicken that night, so I used it as his side dish, while it was my main course. It took me about 30 minutes to make and the final presentation looked like a million bucks! I was so tickled with myself.
The second meal that I made with my Veggie Box from, Hello Fresh, was the Crispy Sunchoke Salad, with Kale, mushrooms and Farro. I have never had sunchokes before and I have to say I was happy that they were included in this dish. It just gave the salad a great texture and a wonderful flavor.
The last meal, which I was going to make last night and had to push it off tonight is a wonderful Asian inspired tofu dish. I can’t wait to try out this last meal and get it in my belly. he he he. I would highly recommend checking out Hello Fresh. They offer two boxes one of course the veggie box and the other is the classic box. My husband is actually interested to see how the classic box is, so I might just get that one as well, so I can post about it. So if you’re tired of wasting away trying to plan out menus for the week and spending time at the supermarket, try this box out. I am sure that you will be in love just like I am.
