Thank you HelloFresh for sponsoring this post!
I am no stranger to meal delivery services. I’ve tried many, but always find myself coming back to using HelloFresh!
The ingredients are always fresh, the meals are simple to cook, and so far every recipe we’ve been delivered is kid friendly.
Why HelloFresh Makes Me a Better Mom
I know it sounds weird to say that a meal delivery services makes me a better mom, but I promise it does!
The main reasons why I believe this are:
- It frees up time in my day to spend with my daughter.
- It lowers my stress level when it comes to planning and cooking healthy meals for my family.
- It gives me something to bond with my daughter over.
Cooking with HelloFresh
One of the biggest reasons why I love using HelloFresh is that it saves me a ton of time. I don’t have to search for recipes on Pinterest, I don’t have to make a grocery list, I don’t have to shop for the groceries, and lastly, I don’t have to meal prep!
As a business owner who works at home and has my daughter home with me full time, any time saved is extra time that I get to spend with her. Instead of me spending hours per week grocery shopping and prepping meals HelloFresh takes care of it all. I’d say HelloFresh saves me about 8-10 hours per week total because we typically eat at home every meal!
As my daughter gets older, she is way more interested in helping me in the kitchen. She loves to scoot her stool up and help me mix things or measure out spices. I love having her in the kitchen with me, but most days I am rushing from my office to the kitchen at the last minute and trying to rush through figuring out what we want for dinner. I have found that when I started using HelloFresh I am much more relaxed about dinner and am more patient with her helping me out in the kitchen.
It is a great way to spend some one on one time with your kids while still getting your house duties done. She loves helping me “read” the HelloFresh instruction cards and finding the right ingredients. It is some of the best bonding time we spend together now 🙂
The best part about HelloFresh recipes is that they are really great about introducing you to new recipes without going completely exotic. It is all stuff we would normally eat just in different kinds of recipes. Please tell me I am not the only one who has the same 10 recipes on repeat? My family was really getting tired of weekly spaghetti. Using HelloFresh we can keep it interesting without making foods that we wouldn’t normally eat.
We’ve used HelloFresh a few times now and have never made a recipe that my three year old wouldn’t eat. Now, that is a mom win if you ask me.
This week we received 3 recipes all of which were super easy to make and finished in under 35 minutes. All of the meals are super healthy too! None of the recipes exceeded 670 calories and were full of delicious veggies.
Before I started using HelloFresh I was worried about the quality of meat and produce that would be delivered, but I actually found that the veggies were super fresh and the meat was better than what I can normally find at my local grocery store!
This week we made Sesame Honey Beef Stir Fry, Sliced Steak Tagliata, and Chicken Pineapple Quesadillas!
