HelloFresh - a Fabulous Coupon Code!!

I love to cook...I hate trying to come up with what to cook. We tend to eat the same thing on repeat. A friend offered a $40 code for my first box of HelloFresh and so I decided to give it a try.

And let me start out by saying that this kiwi salsa from one of the meals was so good and so easy. It will become a regular recipe to have at our house and to share with others.

The regular price of the box I received was $60 (which does NOT fit in my normal grocery budget), but with the code, I was willing to try out 3 meals for around $20.

I chose the 2 serving portion option for my three meals. I know that they offer a family portion for a higher price, but I was sure that would be too much food for us.  Having two preschoolers that eat rather well, I knew that I could substitute a little here and there and make this two-person portion work for our family.

When the recipe had me roast potatoes, I added 2 potatoes. For the steak fajitas, I made the kids cheese quesadillas and added corn on the cob. Using the box this way worked for my family. We didn't really have tons of leftovers, but everyone was full.

The food arrived fresh and packaged well. There were two giant ice packs inside a well insulated box. The ingredients for each meal were bagged separately. Upon receiving the box, I put all the bags and meats into the refrigerator.

When it came time to cook, I simply grabbed the meat portion and my ingredient bag and got to work. The brown paper bag that the ingredients came in worked great for containing the scraps and trash from the meal prep. So, they even provided an easy clean up plan.

The recipe cards are large and super visual. The instructions were clear and the process was fun! The way the cards are laid out would even make them easy to let the kids help! They could easily see the ingredients needed and the next steps.

We thought the food was yummy. And I received new ideas from each meal that I will definitely repeat (like the kiwi salsa).  I loved that I could select what meals I wanted out of the 5 or 6 listed for the week. And, since I wasn't wanting to commit to the box every week at the full price, I simply canceled my subscription as soon as it said that my box was on its way. The process was easy.

If I ever want to try it out again for a week or so, I can easily reactivate my account and select my meals.

If you want to give this a try for the $40 off price...here's my coupon referral code.


You'll receive $40 off and I'll receive $20. This coupon is for new customers only.

And, if you do give it a try, I'd love to know what your favorite aspects and meal ideas were!
