Fresh Revisited

Well, I am into my second round of Hello Fresh meals and here are my short observations:

They come with quality fresh produce in exactly the amounts needed for the recipe so there is NO waste. I don’t throw anything out. This is a big deal to me.

The recipes, (so far) are delicious.

I am trying new foods.

I’m learning new cooking techniques.

I don’t have to do as much shopping, nor gather up a passle of ingredients that I might not use again for half a year. (See waste above.) This also reduces my decision making, which is something that is a bit of a drain on me in my old age I have discovered. Too many choices wears me OUT!

I’m eating a more varied and nutritious diet.

Because I get at least three and sometimes four servings from these ‘two serving’ meals, it is actually economically feasible for my budget.

This observation is a bit on the intangible list, but I am having less anxiety about ‘what I’m eating’. I KNOW it’s nutritious, made at home from fresh real ingredients that haven’t seen the inside of a factory much. These days a person can have so much angst about ‘good’ and ‘bad’ foods. It’s emotionally exhausting.

And the most important thing of all?……

I’m having FUN!  :-)

Now that wasn’t so painful was it ()?

(Remarkably, I must admit. It was tolerable. That is if you stop right now. Otherwise I might have to revise my response.)

I’ll spare you any further input.

(I’m forever grateful.)

I’ll leave you with my favorite meal so far….. pretend the cilantro is disappeared. I gave it to Bruce.

  1. So glad to hear you didn’t have to eat the cilantro. I am sure Bruce dealt with it appropriately. If it were not for the NEW foods, as you mentioned, I might be tempted.
