HelloFresh Stories: A Retiree Finds the Secret to Saving Time and Eating Healthier March 3, 2016
Remember Amy? She shared her HelloFresh story with us last week. And then there was Holly, too. Your stories really make all the hard work completely worth it. We love hearing that our boxes, recipes and ingredients are actually having a positive impact on our customers’ quality of life. So, we couldn’t resist – here’s one more story from Cyndi. She’s a retiree from beautiful Colorado and she’s got lots to say about HelloFresh!
Before HelloFresh, my husband, Mike, and I typically prepared and ate our dinners separately. He’d usually just have a frozen meal or soup and I’d eat cheese and crackers or popcorn, whatever was on hand and quick. We also ate out or picked something up 2-3 times a week. But thanks to HelloFresh’s boxes, this has changed drastically.
Time for a change
About four months ago, I found out about HelloFresh. I was very aware that we were eating unhealthy meals and spending a lot of time and money on eating out, so I was on the lookout for something better. HelloFresh has great prices, interesting recipes and it’s convenient and easy – so we gave it a try.
When our first box arrived, we were impressed with the packaging and how fresh everything was. The individual boxes don’t take up a lot of space in the refrigerator and the recipe cards are a single page. Easy peasy! We were beyond thrilled and thought we had found the answer to our struggles with preparing yummy, healthy and inexpensive meals. I remember turning to my husband as we were eating our very first meal, creamy avocado linguine with coriander shrimp and tomatoes, and saying: “This tastes like something you’d get in a fine restaurant!” He absolutely agreed.
Discovering a new passion
I used to despise cooking and having to come up with something to make. Hated it! Hated the planning, the grocery shopping and the ridiculous amount of time I had to spend in the kitchen. So funny that I now kind of enjoy the whole process. With HelloFresh, the meals have been selected, the ingredients are at hand, they are easy to prepare and I know they are going to be delicious. I have even gone so far as to replace my antiquated grater, peeler and other kitchen utensils because I feel like a real cook now.
A part of our lives
We are still using HelloFresh and I anticipate we will be for many years to come. Such a great solution for retired couples who don’t want to spend a lot of time preparing meals and want to eat healthier. I have told so many friends about the service and I know of at least one who has subscribed. We haven’t had a single meal yet that we felt was just so-so. We couldn’t be more pleased with HelloFresh.
Ohh, well now we’re blushing. It’s so great to hear our customers say such wonderful things about the HelloFresh experience.
