A couple months ago, Marvin switched office locations which really put a kink in our normal schedule as it now means that he gets home later from work each weekday. I have to say, we were pretty darn lucky as Marvin did most of the cooking for our family, but with this shift, the burden has been put more on me now. :/ So when I found out about HelloFresh, I knew I had to try it. It’s all about healthy meal plans, delivered straight to your door, with all the ingredients and step by step instructions you need to make dinners easier. Because let me tell you, I was always a Google Recipes and follow directions exactly type of cook… as well as a let’s buy ingredients for one recipe and then let the rest go to waste type of person too. So really, HelloFresh solves all those issues for me.
HelloFresh offers classic, veggie and family meal plans where the menu changes every week. You can have the option of choosing how many meals you get per week, and the cost averages out to about $8-10 a meal. For my box, I chose the family plan which is for 4 people and asked for 3 meals (that total is $68.92).
Vivian absolutely loves being my little shadow and helper, so when I asked her to help me cook, she was ecstatic. Yes, she is only 2 but full of personality! In the past, we would use stools, but they weren’t quite tall enough, but when I discovered the Learning Tower, I was absolutely sold. It sits a lot higher than other stools, is super sturdy and can be pulled up right to the counter. Vivian LOVES her “tower” and I can’t wait to get the art easel attachment for it too.

Over the course of last week, we got to try out all 3 of the meals that were sent to us and I have to tell you, even Marvin was impressed with the ingredients and meals. For those busy mamas or individuals out there, who don’t always have the time to go grocery shopping or come up with your own recipes, I highly recommend HelloFresh.
And just for my readers, HelloFresh and I are offering $35 off with code ALAMODE35 (for new subscribers)! That’s pretty much like half off a week’s family plan!
