Whats for Tea – with Hello Fresh Review

What’s for tea ? I hear these words on numerous occasions from either one of my kids and also my husband. So when the lovely people at Hello Fresh sent me one of their family meal subscription boxes I couldn’t wait to give it ago.

Hello Fresh Recipe Box that Fits your Lifestyle

So lets get started, I simply choose my favourites from the weekly menu of exciting recipes and decide how many meals I’d like for however many people. Then, they delivered those recipes and fresh ingredients to my door, this then can be done each week if you choose to do so. There is recipes for everyone from meat eaters to vegetarians, families to couples and from those with low calorie diets to others who want quick, easy recipes. Most importantly, you’re in control of your box, so you can skip a week or two whenever you like in your account area.

I chose the Family box , my box contained four family friendly meals with all the ingredients and step by step recipes for me to follow. If you’re like me this was a breath of fresh air from the weekly pressure of planning, shopping and coming up with healthy meals the whole family can eat.

So grab a cup of tea and check out what we cooked and how we got on with the Hello Fresh Box.

Day 1

Penne all’ Arrabbiata with Smoked Pancetta and Fresh Basil

Day 2

Mexican Tostadas with Guacamole and Cheese

Day 3

Chicken and Chorizo Pilaf packed with plenty of Veggies

Day 4

Pan Fried Tilapia with Tarragon Sauce

I have apologie for the lack of pictures on this recipe as I forgot to take any. We were that eger to eat it.

I was really impressed with all the recipes and the quality and quantity of the box, especially the fact that there was no waste. All the ingredients are measured out so there was no weighing or measuring involved and better still no half used bottles or jars of ingredients I will never use again. I was also amazed at how much more variety of healthy food the kid ate, we encouraged them to help choose which of the meals we were going to have each day. They both helped prepare and cook the meals which I think really encouraged them to try out new things. My son isn’t really into spicy food but really enjoyed the Mexican Tostadas which was a big win from us.

I would highly recommend the Hello Fresh box to anyone who feels that family meals are a chore, I’m sure you will be as impressed as me.
