It’s nice to know where the fish comes from. I would like to know more about verifiable food suppliers for HEALTH Fresh.

Tom Kehler says:

Thank you for the great work you’re doing to provide the best food possible.

Mary Malouin says:

Very happy to hear the fish is local and wild. I do not want farmed fish. Fish is a main staple for me and would like it from you regularly.

Jordan Schultz says:

Great to hear, Mary! We know sustainable fish just taste better too. Get cooking!

Can you do more education on oils? I use grape seed oil for everything.

Jordan Schultz says:

That’s great feedback to hear, and we’re glad you found this content useful! We’ll certainly pass that along.

Scott says:

Your recipes commonly say to use Olive oil for high heat oven cooking and pan searing, but make no mention of this distinction that it should not be EVOO. You should say something like “Olive Oil (not EVOO)” in your recipes, as most of your clients probably have not read this blog/do not know the difference, and are using EVOO instead.

Jordan Schultz says:

Jordan here, from our community team. Thanks for the feedback, Scott! We’ll pass that along to our team.

A Lockamy says:

I agree! I did not know that there was that much difference between Olive Oil & Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) – nor did I know the abbreviation for it!

Jordan Schultz says:

It’s a little distinction, but it makes a BIG difference when cooking!

Ellen DuBois says:

Am trying to reach someone to change plan to once a month. Need a way to contact on Web site/app

Jacqueline says:

Hi Ellen – feel free to give our awesome Customer Care team a call at 1-800-733-2414!

Unless I missed it, there’s no mention that it’s also WASTEFUL to use EVOO for cooking as the cost is MUCH HIGHER! I always keep BOTH kinds on hand for that reason.

Sharron says:

I can’t sign up for this until Sept but I love your site and I can’t wait to cook your food. We’re going to have a cook-off.

Jacqueline Parisi says:

LOVE THAT IDEA!!! Can’t wait for you to join the HelloFresh family, Sharron.

Awesome video! I would spend that extra hour with my friends and family!

Hi Austin – us too! We can’t think of a better way to spend that extra hour.

Such a cool idea – I would spend an extra hour sharing a meal with the people that I love.

Love this! I would spend the extra hour catching up with friends at happy hour!

Sabrina says:

I love this perspective! I would spent the extra hour doing yoga and keeping in touch with loved ones far away.

Mary says:

This is great! I would spend that extra hour cuddling my pup and reading a good book!

I’ve been trying to read more lately so I would definitely use that time to cuddle up with a good book 🙂

Jacqueline says:

Hi Janice. So sorry to hear that you had to cancel your subscription, but we’re glad you enjoyed your HelloFresh meals!! Let us know if you ever start craving some more HelloFresh fun – we’ll be here 🙂

Natalie says:

Please tell me what to do with the gray-black spots appearing on the outside of the fleshy part. In this video, and on cooking shows, it appears that they are either not there or totally ignored. Of course, I find then unappetizing and I cut them off.

Jacqueline says:

Hi Natalie – a few bumps and scrapes is totally normal. Feel free to cut around them – we promise the rest of the avocado is still delicious!

I believe beans compete for the top position also. Loaded with vitamins,protein,etc. Problem is as long as you do not have calcium oxalate kidney stones. If you do then beans are a no no. Lima beans occasionally are all you are allowed. I have been with beans now for over 5 years,when I found pout about stones are calcium oxalate stones.There are many other foods I can not eat like any with the word berry in it. That is right no strawberries, blueberries,black berries,cherries,fruit cocktail,raspberries and on and on. No chocolate,no nuts,no cocoa,no tomatoes or tomato sauce,no corn,no tea of any kind. Actually the list of what I am allowed is easier to remember since hardly any thing is on it.Be thankful you do not have calcium oxalate stones and can eat beans.
