I Tried HelloFresh And It Spiced Up My Mealtimes! (+ Glossy Discount To Try Yourself!)


In a time when we’re all juggling multiple plates at the same time, anything we can do to simplify everyday tasks is a huge help. We’ve manage our money online to not have to visit the bank, buy clothes from the web to avoid visiting busy shopping centres so why wouldn’t we make food shopping and meal prep a breeze too? So, in a bid to make mealtimes less hassle and a lot tastier, I decided to turn to HelloFresh.

No one really wants to head to the supermarket right now unless they desperately have to – that’s a given. But when I do, if I don’t go with a plan, I end up buying loads of ingredients for all the meals I want to cook, then end up seeing most of it go to waste. One of the biggest appeals of HelloFresh, to me, is that waste is non-existent. All ingredients come pre-portioned. Not only does this mean less time weighing out ingredients to prep, it also means that every little bit gets used. 

Another huge appeal to me was the chance to try making, and tasting, meals that I likely wouldn’t normally get to. 1. Because I wouldn’t even think to put these specific foods or ingredients together to make a meal, but also 2. even if I did, I wouldn’t know how to do it successfully! 

Plus, seeing neighbours getting HelloFresh deliveries throughout lockdown made me want to get involved with all the foodie fun too! Because food is pretty much the main thing we can get excited about right now!


What Did I Order From HelloFresh? 

Wanting to try options I wouldn’t normally go for, I ordered three HelloFresh meals – two veggie options (a Korean-style rice bowl with tofu and a goat’s cheese risotto) that I’d never had before, as well as a meaty dish (chipotle chicken tacos) that I knew I’d love. 

Despite their differences, all three were incredibly easy to makeThe printed-out instructions included how long each dish would take from start to finish and all the equipment I’d need (as well as how many of my five a day it would include!) and perfectly explained each step of the method with handy pictures too. 

So, How Does HelloFresh Work? 

Getting started with HelloFresh couldn’t be any simpler if it tried. All you have to do is… 

  1. Pick your plan – Cooking for one or the whole family? Got all the time in the world to make your meal or need options that are super quick? Whatever your lifestyle, there’s a HelloFresh plan to match. 
  2. Get your delivery – Each week, you’ll receive your order of simple step-by-step recipes, each complete with nutritional information and fresh, pre-portioned ingredients! 
  3. Cook, eat, enjoy! – No more ‘what should we have for dinner tonight?’ discussions. Instead, in a world where dinner is always planned, simple and deliciousthings are seriously straightforward!

What Kind Of Meals Are On The HelloFresh Menu? 

HelloFresh offers a whole host of meals, that change every week. There are vegetarian meals, quick and easy recipes, low calorie and protein packed optionsas well as world flavours and street food inspired dishes that will enrich your taste buds. 

This means that really, you’re going to be spoilt for choice. And that every member of your family will be able to find something they love. You can easily see what’s on the menu for the next four weeks too, so planning in advance is incredibly simple! 

How Much Does HelloFresh Cost? 

How much your HelloFresh delivery costs all depends on how many people you’re cooking for, and how many meals you would like delivered each week. The more you order, the more you save. But you can get started from as little as £3.25 per serving – which in my opinion is a steal! 

Obviously, because being a Glossy means we’re always bringing you the best offers on brands we know you’ll love, we’ve of course got a Glossy discount especially for you!

I'm someone who loves getting glammed up, but I feel like I never have enough time. Frequently running between work, the gym and seeing friends means my makeup routine is quick and often touched up on the go. Therefore, beauty products that serve as multi-purpose are perfect for me - a blush that works for cheeks and lips is a must in my makeup bag!
