It’s Hello Fresh For Dinner…. Again

by jem614

I’m a sucker for a good deal and every single time that Hello Fresh sends me their little coupons for 50% off, I jump on it (even full price, these meals are worth it!).  I received the package of 3 vegetarian meals on Thursday afternoon and have made the Tuscan Ribollita and Curried Thai Rice Bowl, both delicious!  These boxes make me feel like a fabulous chef and even though my husband doesn’t relish the taste of Thai food (in fact he refuses to eat Thai), he asked me to pack what was left for lunch.  Too late! I packed it for myself.

The Tuscan Ribollita was a suprise to me.  I thought I was going to hate it because it seemed there were too many veggies and not even spices but it was absolute perfection when paired with the ciabatta bread croutons.  The perfect combination of savory and fresh.  I honestly wish I could have these boxes delivered to me every week because it makes things so much simpler and I always have leftovers in our three person household.

As a reminder, you can check them out here:

by jem614

As proponents of healthy eating, Ashley and I have tried many of the meal delivery services here in South Florida.  We thought we’d make you a short list so you know what is available and can try them for yourself.  It’s always great to be able to have your options laid out for you:

Supa Kitchen– Run by Kelsey Vasquez in Pembroke Pines- Current rates (as of March 2015) $70 for two meals a day for five days.  Please check with her to see how far she delivers.  She can do- vegetarian, 21 day fix, weight watchers meals. https://www.facebook.com/SUPAKitchenHollywood
Eco Healthy Meals– Out of business it appears
The Fresh Diet– I have done this one several times when they are on Groupon but can be a bit high otherwise $249 for 7 days.  http://www.thefreshdiet.com/
Fit2Go– Also one that I’ve done on Groupon- about $20 a day for two meals and you can add on extra meals. http://fit2gomeal.com/en/
Catered Fit– can deliver all your meals for the day- 5 day plan is $125 depending on your area.  http://www.cateredfit.com/meal-plans/vegetarian/

Hello Fresh Meal #1 “Caramelized Shallot Risotto”

by jem614

I just received the Hello Fresh box yesterday and busted it open to make dinner last night. Ermergerd!!  I had to stop myself from eating the entire meal. I felt like the best chef in the world, I wanted to invite people over so I could force feed them my dinner.  I never knew you could eat two whole shallots in one serving and not be overwhelmed by the onion-y taste.  This was also the first time I baked them first before adding them to my meal.

The Hello Fresh box was on special for dirt cheap on Groupon a couple of weeks ago plus I had a 20% discount so I paid almost nothing for three whole meals for 2 people.  I would have paid much more at the grocery store.  It was worth every penny… and then some.  I can’t wait to make meal #2 and #3.

Meal delivery services are so much fun, if they are good, they can turn you into an expert chef in one meal.  I love that every single step is laid out for you and all you need to supply is the salt, pepper & oil (*butter as well this time).  Hello Fresh is definitely going to be ordered again in my home.
