Working full-time can often mean that we don’t have time to even think about what we want for dinner, much less prepare it for ourselves. If you’re in need of a meal kit delivery service to make your life a little bit easier in the evening, why not turn to HelloFresh? HelloFresh offers delicious meal plans that are so simple, you’ll have dinner on the table in under 30 minutes.
How Does HelloFresh Work?
Variety is a big part of what makes HelloFresh tick, so you should be able to craft a meal plan that’s right for you. When you select a meal plan, you can customize it according to your dietary requirements, the amount of people living at your home, and the number of times per week that you want to cook at home.
Once you’ve selected your plan, you can choose from a wide range of recipes, with 15 new offerings each week. After placing your order, the ingredients will come to your door within a few days—individually portioned and wrapped—with easy-to-follow instructions to get you from box to plate to kicking back on the couch.
Ordering meals and managing your account on HelloFresh is made a little easier by the company’s mobile app. HelloFresh understands that life happens when we’re busy making other plans, so the app gives you the opportunity to pause your deliveries or modify your meal plan to fit it into your schedule.
What Does HelloFresh Offer?
Like throwing a dart at a map of the world, you pick any random week’s menu on HelloFresh and you’ll hit something interesting.
HelloFresh offers a classic plan for 2 diners, as well as a family plan that feeds 4. So if you’re cooking for you and your partner, a family of 4 or just for one with leftovers—you’re in good shape. Also, with a veggie plan, you don’t have to be a meat eater to get in on the fun.
With dinner options like Chicken Cheddar Fajitas and Barbecue Pulled Pork Sandwiches, you shouldn’t be hearing too many complaints from the dinner table when it’s all plated and served.
If you’re looking to give your guests something extra to savor, you can also order wine from HelloFresh, including numerous top-quality red, white or mixed wines. And if you’d like to revamp your cutlery options, you can also order utensils and even appliances from HelloFresh.

What’s It Gonna Cost Me?
HelloFresh’s pricing is pretty standard for the industry, though it could add up a bit if you’re placing a lot of wine orders or find it hard to say no to new utensils.
