My favourite way to eat healthily: HelloFresh Recipe Boxes

You could chuck a tall white hat, stripy blue apron and twiddly moustache at me and I still wouldn't become a natural chef. From Day 1 of moving out and living on my own (that's like, seven years now), I've never been able to get into the swing of food shopping and cooking for myself. It just doesn't work for me, and I've never found the enjoyment in doing it before.

I live with friends but we cook separately, meaning that I'll often start the day planning on cooking up something delicious from scratch for the evening. But then I remember that I live AGES away from a decent supermarket. I remember that I have zero useful ingredients in the cupboards. I remember that I'll only be cooking for myself anyway so literally what's the point. And I remember that I don't really know much about food, so I struggle to think of exciting, new things to make that I haven't already eaten four times that week. Sigh, cereal it is then.

But that's where HelloFresh comes in. I've used their recipe delivery box service a few times now after discovering it last year, and I can honestly say that it's completely changed the way I go about eating at home. I finally eat fresh, healthy, delicious and nutritious meals cooked completely from scratch by my own hands. This box literally turns me into a grown up.

Each week (or how ever often you fancy having a box delivered, they're super flexible), HelloFresh sources the highest quality ingredients for recipes designed by highly trained chefs. All you have to do is go to the website, choose the meals you fancy eating and how many people you wanna cook for. They then send all the food to your doorstep in a refrigerated box on the day that you choose, along with easy-to-follow recipe cards for your dinners.

It's all about saving you loads of time. HelloFresh cuts out your weekly food shop, drags you out of the rut of cooking the same things all the time, and it even takes away the faff of weighing and measuring ingredients. These boxes have had me cooking recipes which I would never have dared to try (or had the imagination to try), letting me experience ingredients and delicious dishes every single time.

I'm a MASSIVE fan of HelloFresh. Normally, when I opt for a Classic Box, 2 people, 3 meals, it costs £39 which is awesome value anyway, but they've actually sent over an amazing discount code for me to offer anyone who might fancy trying the service.

Just enter 'HFLUCY' to get £25 OFF YOUR FIRST BOX, meaning it'll cost you just £14 for what could be a week's worth of food. Super good value, and totally worth giving it a try as it'll save you on this week's food shop anyway. 

Just click HERE to get your first box (it'll add my discount code on automatically for you).
