Eating clean and healthy aren’t something we’re accustomed to these days unless it’s made more appealing to us through convenience.
Making a trip to the grocery store, unpacking it all and then prepping the food seems like a full-time job in itself. Who has time for that?
It took me years to learn how to eat clean and prepare my own food due to the fact that I didn’t have the time or available resources to do so. (college)
Once I graduated from college, I had a little more of a steadier routine so I was able to balance nutrition and the rest of my life adequately enough.
Recently, I’ve had a schedule almost similar to the one I had in college (as I work three part-time jobs)…so this left zero room to plan and more room to fail.
If you fail to plan, plan to fail!
About a year ago, I was lucky enough to discover a company on groupon called Hello Fresh. It’s a meal delivery service. You have the option of having a few meals and all their ingredients boxed and sent to you and then all you do is the cooking! Easy peasy if you’re into cooking!
Hello Fresh offers a variety of box options to choose from, so if you follow a certain diet, like vegetarian/vegan, there’s no need to worry!
With the groupon I had purchased, I was able to receive two weeks of meals for free…so for me that meant 3 meals per week, coming to a total of 6.
The price was only $59 for the entire groupon (2 weeks) and was well worth it for those weeks! Regular prices are $69 per week for the classic box option.
I usually spend between $75-125 per week on one week of lunches and dinners alone!
This took a lot of the guesswork out of what I would be meal prepping for the week.
I was able to come home from work (or in between my shifts) and prep and cook everything all in about 40 minutes.
Not to mention…the meals are creative, portioned and delicious!
Here’s a few snapshots of some of my faves…
After the groupon expired, I became a Hello Fresh lover! I alternate it into my meal prep every other week and have never encountered a box of ingredients I didn’t like.
I highly encourage you jumping on board the Hello Fresh wagon! You won’t be disappointed.
Here’s my code to get $40 off your first box!
