Easy Post Holiday Healthy Eating with Hello Fresh

Thank goodness for Hello Fresh Meal Kits for making post holiday healthy eating easy! Eating healthfully during the season is hard enough; a healthy eating meal kit like Hello Fresh can help you pieces after a season of parties and traveling.

Post Holiday Healthy Eating Made Easy with Hello Fresh

This post is sponsored by Hello Fresh, who also provided product for my review. As a pre-existing customer of Hello Fresh, be assured that all opinions are my own. 

I knew that when we came back from our epic Thanksgiving Extravaganza, we would a) have no groceries to speak of, and b) we would be craving some less over the top eats that were still grade A delicious (I mean, the bar was set pretty high the week before). So I set up a Hello Fresh Delivery the day after our return from South Carolina, leaving Alex and I only to fend for ourselves for one night and to focus on getting ready for the week, rather than scrambling to meal plan or grocery shop.

And thank goodness we did. Between laundry, Alex prepping for his class, my prepping for clients and blog work, and general cleaning up, our Sunday after arriving home was packed! Or unpacked, I guess you could say πŸ˜€ 

Nail your post holidays healthy eating with Hello Fresh! Hello Fresh healthy meal kits are a life saver! Everything comes in a single box ready for you to make something delicious. Check out the review at @suzlyfe http://suzlyfe.com/easy-healthy-eating-hello-fresh-review/

 

Why I Love Hello Fresh Healthy Meal Kits

I’ve used Hello Fresh a number of times in the past, and I should say that the fact that I have continued to return to them over the other meal kit delivery services that I’ve tried should vouch for my feelings on the matter!

I prefer Hello Fresh for a variety of reasons:

  • The Variety: each week, 10 different meal recipes are developed for your selection. Meaning? You always have options. There are plenty of vegetarian meals, meals for families, meals for kids!
  • The Nutritional Value: Each recipe is developed by an in-house dietitian and a group of in-house chefs. Thus flavor + nutrition are at the forefront of the minds at Hello Fresh! Unlike a few of the other meal kit services, Hello Fresh doesn’t rely on butters and oils but instead on healthy fats while giving you the option to add butters and oils as you like.
  • The Satisfying, Healthy Recipes:  The healthy fats that they supply with complete proteins means that you get a meal that still satisfies without extraneous calories (for those watching their weight). Also, they give you a proper portion of protein (say that 5 times fast), which was an element lacking in the other meal kits. 
  • The Speed and Ease of Creation: I am a good cook, but I am not amazing. I have a certain amount of time, and I am not the most patient. Hello Fresh meals are devised so that ANYONE (seriously, anyone) can cook them from start to finish in 30-45 minutes (at the most).
  • The High Quality Ingredients: I love that they send you Sir Kensington’s condiments and Peanut Butter and Co packets (as they did for the peanut dipping sauce!). I’ve actually discovered new favorite companies from the ingredients in the boxes!

My one critique of Hello Fresh? As you know, I am a BIG FLAVOR person, and sometimes, the meals can err on the side of caution when it comes to spices. This is understandable, as many people don’t have a variety of hot sauces on hand (I actually keep Cholula packets in my car), and also, the refridgeration of the dried herbs might rob the flavor a little bit. Thankfully, Hello Fresh prefers fresh herbs, but it is something that I’ve noticed. If you are getting a package with dried herbs, I suggest that you pull them from the boxes and let them warm up before you use them! But, as with butter and oil, you are always free to add to meal kits as you desire. The main components are there, but you make it your own.

Hello Fresh healthy meal kits are a life saver! Everything comes in a single box ready for you to make something delicious. Check out the review at @suzlyfe http://suzlyfe.com/easy-healthy-eating-hello-fresh-review/

And that is another thing–you know that I always make it my own! As you will see, I tend to move some ingredients around to better suit our purposes.

Hello Fresh Recipe Review

Thai Beef Skewers with Peanut Dipping Sauce from Hello Fresh Healthy Meal Kits! Check out the review from @suzlyfe http://suzlyfe.com/easy-healthy-eating-hello-fresh-review/

Thai Beef Skewers with Peanut Dipping Sauce

We had the Thai beef skewers the Monday after Thanksgiving. The high quality of the ingredients really make this dish sing: top notch beef and PB & Co PB for the sauce. Simple, delicious. As you all know, I’m not a huge white rice fan, so I had mine with wraps.  But I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Autumn Quinoa Salad from Hello Fresh Healthy Meal Kits! Check out the review from @suzlyfe http://suzlyfe.com/easy-healthy-eating-hello-fresh-review/

Autumn Tricolor Quinoa Salad

I utilized the majority of the quinoa for the eggplant stew, so we used the ciabatta that came with that stew for sandwiches that we had alongside the salads. I will say that this was the recipe that I was least impressed by–I am not a huge walnut fan, so the amount of walnuts that came with the salad was a bit overkill for me. I would have liked to have seen another roasted vegetable in there along with the eggplant, like a squash, or even sweet potato.

This Sicilian Eggplant Stew from Hello Fresh Healthy Meal Kits is AMAZING! Check out the review from @suzlyfe http://suzlyfe.com/easy-healthy-eating-hello-fresh-review/

Sicilian Eggplant Stew

What I loved most about this eggplant stew was the fact that. Alex loved the pork, and I served it over quinoa (we saved the ciabatta it came with for a sandwich, lol). It was a deliciously hearty meal, and it got better and better the longer it sat. I am already planning a slow cooker version! I added extra red pepper flake to it to kick it up a notch.

One aspect of Hello Fresh that I have really loved is the fact that it makes healthy eating accessible for me again. I have loved reviving some old and learning new techniques–from 5 ingredient sauces that are the star of the show, to how easy it is to make a stew with just a few things on hand.

    Sounds like they have some great choices. I like that they have vegetarian options as well.

    I’ve ordered a couple of boxes from HelloFresh and loved the convenience and quality of the food but I had a really bad experience with their customer service so I won’t be using them anymore. Be warned, you cannot use HelloFresh credits in conjunction with any promotion they run. This policy isn’t stated anywhere on their website or in any e-mail they send out so I didn’t know and ended up getting charges on my bank account when I thought it would come out of my earned hellofresh credits. Customer service never responded to my first attempt to contact them. My second attempt I was told a manager would get back to me in five business days. Five days later I was told they were sticking to the policy even though its not written anywhere. I was really disappointed because the quality of the food and the recipes were great and I was looking forward to ordering more boxes but customer service was so bad I gave up on them. I hope others have a better experience.

      I’m sorry to hear that. I’ve had a pretty good experience with their customer service thus far. I’m really sorry that you got such the run around!

    My struggle is just taking the time to prepare food for myself and sitting down to eat it. It’s just me and often other things are more important at the time, than sitting down to a meal. I’ve never tried a meal service and don’t eat out or eat processed food, so Hello Fresh meals would be a glorious option. It would get me thinking about putting myself first more often!

    Maybe 2017 will be the year I try this. I really am tired of fixing dinner!

    I have never used one of these services before. I like cooking and I don’t mind creating new things to try. I should just try it and see what we think.

    Oooh, all of these look SO good! I kind of feel like I’m forced to try new things and get back to cooking normally after the holidays because I can’t exactly order takeout so that’s kind of a blessing in disguise, ha!

    That Sicilian eggplant stew sounds amazing. And, as I was reading your description I was thinking “I could make a version of that” but then I see you are already planning to do that with a slow cooker version, so that’s fine with me! Hope it’ll be soon so I can try it out. (I’m also hoping that I get a slow cooker for Christmas too. Ha ha!! πŸ˜€ )

    Seriously though. What I wouldn’t give for some help like this during my show season next year, when I have zero ZERO time to cook yet really really need to make sure I’m eating well (aka real food) to keep my energy up. This company really does look great – especially if its got the Suz stamp of approval.

    I tried Blue Apron and enjoyed it. Would love to see how Hello Fresh compares. I overindulge on sweets a bit too much during the holidays so having a healthy eating meal plan when I get back home would be great!

      I like it better than Blue Apron because it is less “heavy.” You can always add more fats to it if you want, but it is a good balance for me!

    Trying to stay healthy during the winter is hard because I’m not a fan of winter veggies and I reach for things like hearty meals. If I make soup with veggies it helps.
