Tired of Grocery Shopping?

As you know creating a weekly meal plan has been key to my weight loss success. However getting back from Spain last Sunday meant I was too tired and busy to create my plan for last week. I returned to work the very next day on Monday so I just went to Trader Joes and picked up a ton of fruit and salad ingredients because I ate a ton of bread in Spain. 

So I placed my first order with HelloFresh which delivers a weekly box of fresh ingredients and recipes to make three healthy meals out of it. Each meal should take less than 30 minutes to cook. The company prides themselves on using local farms, seasonal foods and high quality ingredients. They only deliver to states on the right half of the country and use recycled boxes, no styrofoam and gel packs to keep the temperature inside. Their meals claim to be low in calories, low in fat, and high in protein, however I got the two person serving box but the serving size was very generous and could be stretched out to more servings. It comes with a glossy card with recipe and ingredients to make it easy to prepare but I found the directions were often missing something.




My box contained foods for the following recipes and none of them wowed me. The directly heavily relied on salt for the main seasoning.
