A & C: Welcome to another Foodie Friday! This week we’ve decided to share a new discovery with you; an amazing company called Hello Fresh. We both received vouchers for Hello Fresh in our You Beauty Discovery boxes last month and they were for a whopping £25 – which is super generous! We hadn’t actually heard of the company before, and just in case you haven’t either here’s a bit of a back story.
Hello Fresh was set up by Patrick, who had a dream of changing the way the nation eats. He spends time prepping new recipes each week, sources the best ingredients and puts them together for his customers – who can hop onto the website, order a box of their choice and have it delivered straight to their door. No stressful shopping queues, no time wasted and easy recipes to follow with literally everything you need. There are three boxes to choose from; the Classic box, the Veggie box and the Family box. In each box, you get a choice of how many meals you need; 3 meals per week for 2 persons, 3 meals per week for 4 persons or 5 meals per week for 2 persons. The starting price for these boxes is £42, which works out to be £7 per person per meal. A bargain for such yummy food delivered direct to your door.
Because our vouchers were for £25, this meant that we got all of this for just £17 – ah-mazing! We’ve decided to break this down into a few posts, because there’s just too much info and photos for one, so in today’s post we will show you what we received in our boxes with a run down of each recipe, and over the next few weeks we will show you the delicious food we made and let you know how successful the recipes were. We both cook every day, and love cooking – but it can become a chore so these boxes are such a treat for us – they really take the stress out of meal-times, planning your food, shopping for food, working out how to cook it, checking you have the ingredients etc. So here’s what we received!
The boxes are absolutely jam packed with goodies. I couldn’t quite believe the amount of food that amount been delivered to be honest, and it even came with it’s own cooler bag which is super re-usable (my boyfriend has been taking his pack-up to work in it!). The cooler bag had the meat; chicken, beef and salmon in it, as well as other ingredients that needed to be kept cool. I even got little sachets of tomato ketchup and mustard, as well as a sachet of peppermint tea leaves – so cute!
C: I ordered my box a week after Annie, so I received different recipes to try.
First up… look how full of food the boxes are! I love anything in miniature (I have a problem) so I loved the little mini pots of herbs etc – the boyfriend isn’t so happy as I have kept them for when I will obviously need them again. Hope you enjoy having a look through the recipe cards I received:
We are so excited to get started with these and can’t wait to show you our finished recipes! Keep following Foodie Friday’s to see how they turn out!
