5 reasons why I switched and you should too

5 reasons why I switched and you should too

I love cooking for my family, but let's face it ⁠— it's hard to mix it up. I tried HelloFresh and have tried the others. I keep coming back to HelloFresh, and I really want to tell you why. Tap or click here to try HelloFresh and save $80.

We all get stuck in the rut of making the same meals over and over again. Barry and Ian refuse to eat chicken because they said we had it every night for 10 years. It's not true, but I did cook a lot of chicken dishes!

After a long day, getting up the energy to prepare dinner is tough. We all know how easy it is to end up eating takeout once again or throwing up your hands and heading to a restaurant. But there goes your diet and they load up dishes with a ton of sodium that's bad for your body.

That's why HelloFresh is so great. Every week, pick your favorite mouth-watering recipes, and everything you need (down to a teaspoon of a particular spice) is delivered right to your door. And everything is fresh.

I'm so particular about what I eat

We're always watching our weight, right? If you want to lose a few extra pounds and improve your health, you know you have to exercise and eat right. But even if you can't make it to the gym every day, HelloFresh makes it a snap to eat sensible meals.

Their low-calorie recipes make hitting your goals easier, and they don't taste anything like traditional, boring diet food. Just look for the blue Calorie Smart label for meals around 650 calories.

These dietitian-approved options include Pesto Crusted Lamb, Bulgogi Chicken Tacos and Steakhouse Pork Chops. I don't know about you, and this may sound harsh, but those dishes sound a lot yummier than a sad salad or bland skinless chicken breasts.

Just for two and fun activity for couples

With Ian off to college, meal planning is different. Gone are the tater tots (too tempting anyway!).

Let's face it, cooking for just two is tough. How many times have you whipped something up and you're stuck with way too many servings? If it's just you and your significant other, you want enough to eat for dinner, not a fridge full of leftovers you'll never touch.

HelloFresh is great for empty nesters because you get just enough ingredients for two perfect portions. You can also customize your order based on how many meals a week you want to prepare, so you're never stuck with meat and produce languishing in the fridge.

It just makes sense. And it's fun.

Insider secret: Barry and I make dinner together and I think it's a great way to keep being a fun couple. You make dinner, cook it, have a glass of wine, eat and remember what it was like before kids. Tap or click here to try HelloFresh for this reason alone, save $80, and you'll see what I mean.

Dinner's done in 20 minutes

One of my favorite things about HelloFresh? It saves so much time! I know you're busy, like me, and you'll love this too.

Forget figuring out what to prepare and spending time getting all the ingredients at the grocery store ⁠— it takes forever, and that's before you even step foot in the kitchen.

No more of that with HelloFresh. Just pick the meals you want that week, and you'll receive all the ingredients you need (down to the spices!) plus an easy-to-follow recipe.

And we're not talking an hour of prep and cooking time every night. You'll be eating in as few as 20 minutes. And because these meals take so much less time to prepare, you can happily drive by fast-food restaurants knowing you'll have a good meal on the table in under half an hour.

On your schedule

Not every week is the same, and sometimes you'll want more meals than others. If you've got a slow week and want to cook all your dinners at home, load up. If you have dinner plans a few nights, no problem!

And if you're not home to cook at all, just pause your order at no charge. Log into your account or open up the HelloFresh app to skip a week, add more meals or even change your order. Just be sure to make your changes before your order deadline.

If you pause your box while you're out of town, be sure to start up again when you get home. I can't tell you how convenient it is getting everything you need to make fresh meals after a vacation. You know what I'm talking about. Sometimes you need a vacation after your vacation!

You're not locked in

HelloFresh is a subscription, but that doesn't mean you're locked into a contract. If you ever decide it's not for you, cancel your subscription. It's quick and easy, and you can always come back when you're ready.

Have I convinced you yet? After you try it, you'll say, "I get it! Now I know what Kim was talking about!"

I'm telling you, you're going to love HelloFresh. And get this, I love a deal and I know you do too! So, I arranged for you to get $80 off!
