MJ May says:

My first! Lovely. What do I do with the nice packaging?

Jacqueline says:

Hi MJ – welcome to the HelloFresh family!! The honeycomb paperboard is 100% curbside-friendly (same with the separators and meal kits). Take summer liners to a nearby recycling center. Trash winter liners. When it comes to ice packs, use scissors to cut a small corner and empty water soluble contents into the trash before recycling this plastic pack. And for the HelloFresh box – fold and discard with the other household recyclables.

Colorful veggies, for the win!!

Rwan Sabuch says:

I do looooove peas! Way to be. Nailed it. My husband and I want to thank you and tell you how much we love HelloFresh. It’s been a life changing experience. We love the portions, the recipes, the ingredients, and the fact that you seem to be environmentally conscious. I love that you don’t waste food by sending ridiculous portions and amount of ingredients. We love that the packaging is paper and not PLASTIC!!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU.

Jacqueline Parisi says:

WOW! Thank you so much, Rwan!! We love getting feedback from everyone in the HelloFresh family and will be sure to pass this along to our chefs 🙂

Brigitte says:

I cannot walk away from a fresh, lusciously plump, organic bunch asparagus.

Jacqueline Parisi says:

We’re with you, Brigitte

Audrey Waggoner says:

Broccoli is my least favorite vegetable.

Nita R says:

We just tried HelloFresh for the first time…We loved it!

Jacqueline Parisi says:

Welcome to the HelloFresh family, Nita!

Uma Mondal says:

Wonderful preparations by HF thanks for the fantastic blend of exotic ingredients and recipes from different cultures. Really makes my day when I cook Hello Fresh. Keep up the good work folks.

Uma Mondal says:

Food cooks same as pictured. Not only looks good but tastes good too. What’s more its filling too.

Cindy says:

I only wish there were more broccoli in my boxes. Wayyyyyyyyyyy too much zucchini. You need to incorporate more vegetable choices in your meals. It seems you get stuck in a rut with the same old veggie and carb choices every week. Please mix it up a little and give us more choices. For instance for each meal choice for a particular week all the choices come with zucchini, or all the carbs are roasted potatoes. How about mashed or cauliflower mash or anything besides the same choices with a different meet. Thank you 🙂

Jacqueline Parisi says:

Thanks for the feedback, Cindy! We really appreciate it and will be sure to pass this along to the rest of the team.

LaVita Santiago says:

We love salty and some spicy, I like seafood, he DOES NOT, he’s a me and tater man…

Nestor says:

HelloFresh has been a lifesaver. Great ingredients. FRESH meats and seafood. and most of all, fantastic recipes. HELLO FRESH, glad you’ve become a member of our family. Great to have the family involved in the prep and cooking. LOVE IT!

Jacqueline Parisi says:

We LOVE it when HelloFresh gets the whole family excited about dinnertime!!

Gail C says:

I can’t believe quiz says broccoli (ick). I prefer white, yellow, orange & red vegetables. My favorite veggie is sweet potatoes with beets a close follow-up. However, one of the reasons for joining Hello Fresh is to try new foods especially vegetables. So far all three meals sent have been delicious. Thank you Hello Fresh

Toni Valente Justice says:

Love some summer peas!

Barbara Glenn says:

My carb of choice is legumes and lentils.

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.

Thanks for reading and cooking with us, Alan!!

Theresa says:

When receiving the boxes, can they go right into the refrigerator or should the veggies be taken out and shelved? I don’t know if potatoes, lemons or avacados should go into the frig.

Jordan Schultz says:

Hi Theresa! You can store your recipe boxes right in the fridge. There are some items which should be removed (like basil and avocados), but we’ll remind you on the label in that case.

Mikel says:

Love that “Hangry Hour” lol!!
