Happy Thursday and thanks for stopping by day 2 of the Paleo Challenge with me, My Life Well Loved and Happily Hughes. Today I want to talk about something that is SO hard for us, and I'm sure many of you can relate: how to eat healthy. And the hardest part of that is eating healthy at home while still making the meal exciting while still on a budget. All while chasing after your toddler. Those phrases usually don't go together, do they? I have been hearing so many great things about food delivery services, I finally had to check it out myself because 1.) I don't have much free time. 2.) I'm a horrible cook. 3.) I don't have much time. = )
HelloFresh is a food delivery service where fresh ingredients are delivered to your door weekly to cook a variety of different meals selected by you depending on your food choices, your household size, your schedule and your budget. There are 3 different meal plans: classic, family and veggie. For 3 meals a week for 2 different people on the classic plan, the cost is $59.94. That is $9.99 per meal per person. Make sure you use the coupon code HIGHHEELS35 to receive $35 off your first box! That will make it just $4.15 a meal per person. It is definitely worth it in my opinion! When eating healthy, it definitely isn't cheap, but you get what you pay for. We already pay around $5-$10 per meal at our house because we buy so much fresh meat and produce to cook with. So for us, using HelloFresh was really a no brainer. It completely took the guesswork out of what to cook. There is a new list of recipes each week, so it was fun choosing what 3 meals sounded the best each week. And there was so much variety, we didn't get tired of any of them.
One of my favorite things about HelloFresh besides how fast, easy and convenient it was, was that it made it so easy to include the entire family. The entire meal was ready in 30 minutes, and it actually kept Leighton's attention for about half of that time for her to help me cook. Then off to watch Dora it was! With HelloFresh, you have the option of receiving 3, 4 or even 5 meals a week for 2 or 4 people. The portion sizes were really big, so we opted for the 3 meals a week plan for 2 people, and there was MORE than enough food for all of us! I'm pretty sure Shane couldn't believe that I actually cooked this meal myself. I am seriously the worst cook y'all. But that's the great thing about HelloFresh. It's perfect for everyone whether you are a great cook or still a 10 year beginner like me (it takes me a while to get domesticated haha!)
While HelloFresh doesn't have any paleo meal plans yet, it was so easy to tailor most of the meals for a paleo diet. For this meal, it involved steak, gravy, kale and potatoes. I ate the steak and kale, and Shane ate all the rest. I was still plenty full, and with a meal this yummy, I definitely didn't feel like I had to sacrifice. I'm so excited to be giving away a 3 meal subscription box to one lucky reader today! To enter, just use the rafflecopter widget at the bottom of this post and good luck! P.S.
