As much as I enjoy cooking, I do suffer kitchen fatigue from time to time. The frosty grey gloomy weather in Canberra this winter feels a bit like ground hog day. Frosty is an understatement really, its been mind numbing and down right freakin’ freezing #arcticvortex You’d think after 20 years I would have found a way to enjoy the cold, but nope… I just can’t get into it! The worst thing about the winter blues is it saps the creative outta me, and I don’t think I’m alone with this, but I get over deciding what to eat, what to cook and even eating food can become a bit of a drag. Can’t have that right?!
I love anything that makes deciding what to eat easy, especially when battling the winter blues, I want my food to be loaded with flavour using good quality ingredients, is easily prepared, good value for money and doesn’t require a lot of fuss. Enter this winters foodie delight – Hello Fresh. A delivery service that brings all the ingredients and recipes for meals right to your door (high fives, fist bumps and & cheeky happy dance removing grocery shopping in the dark from the equation), and all I had to do was cook it.
A few things I love about Hello Fresh
– The meals are all designed to be cooked in 30 minutes or less and work out at about $10 per person.
– I love that Hello Fresh use Australian produce rather than imported ingredients (where possible).
– Everything is fresh. The few items that we haven’t prepared remained fresh longer than fruit and vegetables we have bought from the markets and supermarket.
– The protein is great quality and tastes like it is supposed too.
– The recipes are super easy and oh so tasty.
– No meal planning and no shopping #BEST
– No wastage.
– Serving sizes are huge.
– There is an excellent range of meat and veg dishes, pasta, stirfry and vegetarian too.
– The recipe cards are very visual.
– I’m out of my food rut and feeling inspired with some stella new homey recipe ideas.
