My week with HelloFresh

Posted by Natalie Sexton on

I have always enjoyed trying out new recipes and cooking. I find it calming and even more so I LOVE to eat! But, as a business owner and stylist I am very busy. My work schedule has me traveling all over Canada, which doesn’t leave me a lot of time to enjoy the art of cooking anymore. That is, until I was introduced to HelloFresh! The concept is fantastic, HelloFresh delivers ‘cook from scratch’ meal plans straight to your door with carefully curated, easy-to-follow recipe cards and locally sourced pre-portioned fresh ingredients in just the right quantities. The best part is that HelloFresh delivers to every province in Canada.
Last week, my partner and I enjoyed 3 delicious meals and even had leftovers for lunches. We devoured the Sage and Butternut Squash Risotto which, was creamy but not too heavy, Vegetable Calzones that were light and fluffy, and savoury Veggie Shepherd’s Pie. It took me under 30 minutes to prepare each meal, and the clean-up took minutes! It is really hard to find yummy and creative vegetarian options but HelloFresh nailed every recipe. Each meal was unique and had its own fresh flavours and spices. There was never a feeling of eating the same thing over and over. 
I have been eating a vegetarian diet for 6 years now, so the Veggie Plan is right up my alley. Every week offers an abundance of seasonal produce, hearty grains, and vegetarian-friendly proteins. My partner isn’t a vegetarian and now that HelloFresh has added more vegetarian meal options to its Pronto Plan, which also features meat meals, the plan is “flexitarian” friendly. This means you can better cater to the taste buds of the whole fam.

What is flexitarian you ask? Well, with HelloFresh’s Pronto plan for example, you can now choose two veggie options and one meat option, which works for both of us. There has been a big push to try the Flexitarian diet, which is basically eating primarily vegetarian but occasionally also having meat or fish. A friend sent me the link to a recent report that even suggests that if the world wants to limit climate change, then we all need to embrace flexitarian diets. Don’t just take my word for it, HelloFresh CEO Ian Brooks says, “The findings of the study confirm that adopting a flexitarian diet and reducing food waste, both benefits of being a HelloFresh customer, are instrumental in the move towards a sustainable future by 2050.”


I highly suggest you give HelloFresh a try! The expertly curated recipes with farm fresh ingredients delivered right to your door are a life changer!  Say Hello to home cooked meals again! Check out the HelloFresh Instagram stories for some awesome recipe ideas.
