Very glad you have switched from plastic bags to recyclable paper. However, those of us with septic tanks cannot flush the gel in the cold packs. Please push your suppliers to find an alternative that can be recycled by everyone, along with an alternative to the fiber padding.

Jordan Schultz says:

Hi Suzanne– Jordan here, our community team lead at HelloFresh! Our suppliers tell us that the gel is septic safe once dissolved in water. They recommend dumping the liquid down the toilet and recycling the plastic.

Hope I win ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks Hello Fresh!

Carl says:

I got my first Hello Fresh shipment and it was disgusting. The chicken leaked all over everything else, it all went in the garbage. I contacted their customer service, and it was middling. I got a credit, and new meals coming 2 wks out. The whole point was meals this week while inlaws were in town. Now I just have extra garbage in the garbage bin. It was gross.

Jordan Schultz says:

Hi Carl– Jordan here from the HelloFresh community team. We hear you, and we’re so sorry to hear about the disappointing delivery experience. If you wouldn’t mind, please reach out to our customer care team at hello@hellofresh.com or 1-800-733-2414. We want to make this up to you!

An Interview with Our Registered Dietitians, Rebecca and Sarah!

Behind the Scenes March 8, 2017

What better way to celebrate Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day than hearing from HelloFresh’s very own RDs, Rebecca and Sarah? Continue reading to learn what inspires them and the one nutrition myth they wish you’d stop believing.ย

Dovas says:

Happy Nutrition Day! Great read and very interesting to know that Juice detox cleanse is a myth… I wish I knew that before buying all those detox shots.

Jordan Schultz says:

Live and learn, Dovas. Live and learn!

Marie says:

Do you have low sodium recipes?

Rebecca Lewis MS RDN says:

Hi Marie,

As the Head Dietitian, I’d be happy to help answer your question. HelloFresh has a large variety of recipes and options each week to pick from. We list out all of the nutrition information on the website next to the meal choices up to 6 weeks in advance before your box arrives. You can log in and see the nutrition (including sodium) ahead of time in order to select the recipes that work best for you. If you are ever uncertain about something, you can also reach out to the dietitian’s directly at nutrition@hellofresh.com

Love your very balanced approach to clean, healthy eating! I agree with you about the juice fasts. They are just sugar water with the fiber (“pulp”) removed! If you are using them to detox, it is NOT going to help with that because one of your biggest cleansing organs, the colon, needs that discarded fiber to bind to toxins and eliminate them from the body. Thanks for your post!

Jordan Schultz says:

Hi Camille! Jordan here, from the HelloFresh community team. So glad you enjoyed our take. We’ll let Rebecca and Sarah know!

Lisa says:

Are any thee plans sent with Organic ingredients?

Jacqueline says:

Hi Lisa – The focus of HelloFresh is on helping our customers make those first steps towards cooking well-balanced meals at home. While our product is not organic, what we do concentrate on is what produce looks and tastes best. We work with sustainable business partners to ensure high quality, seasonal, and farm-sourced produce is delivered to our customers at peak freshness. All of our suppliers have a wealth of experience, and we feel they really are some of the best! If you have any questions about our fruits and veggies, please feel free to reach out to the produce team directly at produce@hellofresh.com.

Linda says:

Hi there-I must be overlooking the nutritional values on your meals. For example, the sodium is of particular interest to me-but, I can’t find it! Can you help me out here? Thank You

Jordan Schultz says:

Hi Linda! All of our nutritional information is listed on the website. here is our current menu. Simply click the recipes and you’ll be able to see the nutritional breakdown on the page. We also send a nutrition card in our boxes!

Elizabeth says:

As a retired RD in a rural Va town, l am enjoying hello fresh foods. Beats our lonely grocery. But we do hit farmers market and local seafood. Thank you

Jacqueline Parisi says:

Thanks for being part of the HelloFresh family, Elizabeth!!

Andrea says:

This is great news!

Bobby says:

Great decision by Hello Fresh to source species and environmentally safe seafood.

Nia says:

Don’t forget scallops. Scallops please ease ๐Ÿ˜€

Tahla says:

Is there any chance of a pescatarian box?

Jacqueline says:

Tahla – currently we don’t offer a pescatarian box. However, we’re always looking to improve and will be sure to pass this along to our culinary team.

Merrill Turner says:

Thank you for your concern about the health of our oceans!

Lauire says:

Is all of your sea food wild caught. I refuse to eat farm raised fish and if not wild caught do you let people know that it is farm raised.

Jordan Schultz says:

Hi Laurie! Jordan here, from our community team. Our seafood is a combination of wild-caught and sustainably raised.

Rob Coble says:

Is the salmon wild caught? I have some of your salmon here but I want to know before I decide if I am going to cook it.

Jordan Schultz says:

That varies by location, week and certain other factors. Part of this Monterey partnership means that we are making choices based on sustainability guidelines. That means that if wild-caught salmon are overfished at the moment, sustainably farmed salmon would rank higher.

Evelyn O'Connor says:

I have recommended in the past utilize pearl couscous or quinoa, bulgur or red rice. much more appetizing. Just saying.

Jacqueline says:

Thanks for the tip, Evelyn! We’ll definitely pass this along to our culinary team. They’re always looking to improve and experiment with new ingredients.

Gweneta Borden says:

This is great news! However, just would like you to know that I only eat fishes that a kosher.

Jordan Schultz says:

We’ll pass that along to our team, Gweneta!

cheryl says:

I think this is WONDERFUL! I don’t eat fish because 20 years ago I heard a spokesperson from the Shedd Aquarium speak at length about how our oceans are empty due to over fishing.

I am behind you 100%.

Ellen Weeks says:

Sounds like a great idea! Those of us away from coastal markets will appreciate that option!

Valerie Franklin says:

THANK YOU! As a long-time subscriber, I want to thank you for teaming up with Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch to select sustainable seafood options, and all your efforts to choose sustainable meats and products. When I open the box every week, I read every label to see where it has come from and what is in it. Thanks again, it makes our decisions easier!

Jacqueline says:

Only the best ingredients for the HelloFresh family!! We’re so happy to hear how much you’ve been loving HelloFresh, Valerie ๐Ÿ™‚

Denise Bell says:

Soooo appreciate your commitment to sustainable fisheries!

Lisa says:

As long as we get seafoods other than cod and salmon I’m happy… Yuck. Keep the shrimp coming, would love to see things like scallops in boxes

Jacqueline says:

Duly noted, Lisa!! We’ll pass this along to the culinary team.

I am sharing HelloFRESH with my patients.

I have shared Hello Fresh with many of my patients.

Jordan Schultz says:

Jordan from the community team, here. That’s amazing to hear! Thanks for sharing the love!

Linda says:

Thanks we love fish!!!

Jacqueline says:

We’re with you, Linda!
