How does HelloFresh meal box delivery work?

  • Head to the HelloFresh website via our exclusive link
  • Choose a recipe theme: Meat & Veggies, Veggie, Family Friendly, etc.
  • Pick any combination of recipes in servings of 2 or 4 and the number of meals in each box
  • Head to checkout and select the day of your delivery – so customizable!
  • Score the automatic discount
  • Enter your payment information

Then comes the fun part! You will be automatically prompted to choose from a huge variety of over 100 tasty & wholesome meal options!😋

From there, your ingredients get delivered right to your door with freezer packs in the packaging so everything is super cold! One of my favorite parts is that HelloFresh packages all of the pre-portioned ingredients for each recipe in separate paper bags as a meal kit (except for meat) – so you can just get cooking!

Have kids at home? Let HelloFresh teach them essential life skills!

When we say HelloFresh meals are easy to prepare, we mean EASY enough even for kids to get involved with minimal supervision! That means more quality time together ✅ plus practice learning an essential life skill for them ✅ OR more time to get other housework done for you ✅!

In fact, this is Hip Sidekick, Melinda’s favorite reason to grab a HelloFresh meal delivery kit every now & then:

What I love most about Hello Fresh is how the meals are easy enough to get my kids involved. My daughter just turned 11 and my middle child is 9 and they tag-teamed on making us dinners a few nights when our box arrived. The step-by-step instructions are perfect for them to cook the meals from start to finish with minimal supervision needed. This gave them a boost of confidence in the kitchen and allowed them to see what they were capable of. They also tried out meals they aren’t used to having (like risotto with mushrooms in it) and realized they actually like more than standard kid food 😉

Hello Fresh meals are delicious and convenient but I love them the most for the experience this meal box gives our family. My husband likes to get involved too for these meals unlike a regular dinner night…haha!

One Pan BBQ Pulled Chicken Tacos with Creamy Slaw & Red Onion

hellofresh bbg tacos meal

These BBQ chicken tacos were a big hit with my kids! We love tacos, and the zesty BBQ sauce and chicken were delicious alongside some crunchy sriracha mayo cabbage slaw with chopped cilantro. The best part was this chicken was already cooked, so this was a true one-pan meal that was simple and quick to make!

Bahn Mi Style Meatball Bowls with Pickled Veggie Salad & Ginger Rice

Hello Fresh Banh Mi Meatballs

Okay, to be honest, this from-scratch meal had a few more steps involved like grating fresh ginger and garlic, and rolling meatballs, but the extra work was well worth this restaurant-worthy dinner! Oh my goodness, I loved this flavorful meal and want to create my own version soon. The Jasmine rice was so delicious and the aromatic beef meatballs were incredible!

The internet loves Hello Fresh and I’m confident you will too! 

In fact, on top of having the most 5-star meal kit reviews, HelloFresh was named America’s best meal delivery service by USA Today and received America’s best customer service among meal kits from Newsweek. This news does not surprise me at all because I personally find the quality to be well worth it!
