As a busy mom I sometimes can fall in a rut oft he recipes that are habitual for us. Good food, easy, quick meals I never have to glance at a recipe card for seem to have filled out table lately. Which is fine! But I have always loved experimenting with new recipes and trying new things but the business of life makes the research of execution of new meal planning, buying all ingredients and figuring out to make the meal seem daunting and exhausting.
I was so happy when Hello Fresh emailed me and asked me to try their meal prep delivery service. It seemed like the perfect fit to solve my problem! They send you all the ingredients needed, plus full detail recipes with pictures included of multiple delicious, healthy NEW meals! I was excited.
The delivery show up on your doorstep in a temp friendly package so it can stay fresh all day outside if needed. I was able to make all meals in less than 30 minutes each, and they were delicious and new.
The first day we tried the “Easy as (Shepherd’s) Pie” and absolutely loved how this one turned out. I had never made a Shepherds pie before and it was quick and delicious and my kids loved it too.
The next night we made my favorite, the “Pistachio-Crusted Chicken with Quinoa and Chopped Cucumber Jalapeño Salad” and I loved the flavor combo in this recipe. It was a bunch of new combos I hadn’t tried before and this was a really good hearty meal we loved.
Last but not least we made the “Little Ears Pasta” for the kids, and they really loved this one. It was a healthy version of Mac n Cheese and they also loved making this one with me.
I loved working with Hello Fresh, and I can’t wait to continue using their meal plan service a few times a month to help spice things up in our meal plan rotation and make this busy mamas dinner options a little more fun!
