I am excited to share my first Hello Fresh Box with you.
So, a friend on my mine recently started using Hello Fresh and shared her coupon code with me- for $40 off my 1st box. I downloaded the app and registered for my first box on a Friday and my box arrived on Monday.
There are different plans you can choose from, there are also feature that allow you to select foods you wish not to receive. I selected the Classic Meal Plan, which includes 3 meals for 2 people. The app shows you the meals that you will be getting immediately. Here are my 3 (egg + nut free) meals :
- Chicken Sausage Flatbread Pizza with Broiled Zucchini and Fresh Oregano
- Beef Chiles Rellenos with Poblano Peppers and Chipotle Sauce
- Pulled Pork Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with Cucumber Tomato Salad
The box comes complete with recipe cards for each meal and the app also stores all recipes in the “my cookbook” feature.
The ingredients for each meal comes in separate recyclable paper bags. Here’s the ingredients for my 3 classic meals:
Everything you need is included, expect the pots, pans and stove of course.
I’ve already cooked my first meal and it was delicious. I mean, I can cook but I’m bad at finding good recipes. So having the ingredients sent to me and a detailed recipe card helps a lot.

Hello Gorgeous! Happy Sunday, today has been a very vibrant day. I got a chance to sleep in and get some much needed rest. I woke up, checked some e-mails and paid some bills. Then got dressed and ready for church. Sunday’s are great for relaxing and preparing for week to come. Which alway leads me to some type of store for something. So I went grocery shopping. Now this is my first real official grocery trip this year. And I just want y’all to know I am ABSOULELY hilarious we it come to food shopping. I honestly don’t know why. First, I was talking to myself and these kids on the aisle with me bust out laughing. Then, I almost fell chasing after my cart on the frozen aisle. And I almost pee’d myself. But on to my point!
I want to be healthier in 2016. I’m not looking to lose weight or anything like that. But I do think its important to have healthy eating habits and a work out plan to stay in shape. Once upon a time, I used to meal prep but not in a healthy way. I just used to cook all my meals on Sunday evening for the week so I don’t have to worry about cooking during the week. Lazy, right! I know. But I would go to the grocery store every Sunday and buy food to cook my meals for the week. So, now I want to get back into that but try to be a little bit healthier with it. Today, I got enough food for 2 weeks of planned lunch and dinners during the week days. The weekends will be my off days to eat whatever I like with considerations of my health plan.
I shop at Kroger and Trader Joe’s. But today I was being lazy and only went to Kroger. My cart was filled with ingredients for grilled chicken meals. My goal is to prepare grilled chicken, steamed potatoes, and mixed vegetables for dinner. And grilled chicken salad with cucumbers, tomatoes, boiled egg and lite dressing for lunch. I hope I don’t get tired of chicken by the end of the week. LOL.
As for my workout plan, I hate working out. I hate being hot and sweaty. But I think I can handle 2 days a week for 30 to 45 minutes. Luckily I don’t even need a gym membership. My complex has two gyms that I can use. So that’s a plus. I don’t have to add a gym membership bill to my budget and I don’t have to travel far to work out. I wish I had a work out partner, but for right now I have to be my own motivation. And yes I need a lot of motivation. I mean, like, I paid for a gym membership for a whole year and only went maybe five times. I remember one time I schedule to meet with a trainer to help me figure out a workout plan. And I came to the gym with a icy from the gas station because it was hot outside. The trainer was so mad that he re-schedule with me and told me to come back when I was actually ready to work out. I didn’t think it was that serious but he did. So I never got that work plan from him. Then another time I went to the gym and spent like 10 minutes on the treadmill. Then, I got bored and walked over to the bagel shop across the street for a cinnamon sugared bagel. I am the worst. OMG !!! Maybe it would be smart for me to find a back up work out plan I can do inside- just for those days I don’t feel like walking to the gym. Just pray for me.
I will give you all updates on my process and failures. I might even to a grocery haul video and share some recipes. I even got some stuff to make smoothies. So I will share recipes for that as well. But, feel free to share with me your workout and meal prep routines, I’d love to hear. But until next time, have a fabulous week!
