Hello Kindness, Hello Guidance, Hello Support... Hello Fresh Giveaway






Mother's Day is coming up in a few weeks. While I do not go crazy with fanfare and celebration over the holiday itself it is worth noting who it was designed for, mothers. I believe Mother's Day is a celebration of the special women in our lives and that does not mean just our actual mothers but other influential women as well such a teachers, aunts, grandmothers, friends, neighbors and sisters.  To recognize those women Hello Fresh is giving away a gift card to one Crumbs in the Couch reader.  That winner may choose then to keep their week of free meals or gift it to a special mother figure in their life.

We have been subscribing to Hello Fresh for three months now.  You may have read my original post about all the reasons we love it for our family.   I added a little more love for Hello Fresh with each week we used them.  I did my first giveaway in February and am thrilled to be at it again.  If you haven't heard of Hello Fresh before then let me take a bit of time to explain the concept.  Chefs create amazing recipes that are balanced, varied, unique yet easy for a novice cook to prepare.  The recipes accompany the exact ingredients that you will need to create the meal for two or four people.  The ingredients are packaged and delivered free to your doorstep.  The boxes contain three different meals and you can choose between meat or vegetarian.

I have had many people ask me questions about why Hello Fresh would be worth the cost.   I myself bought that first box at a discounted rate and thought I would immediately cancel.  The cost is worth it for many reasons but the two that come first to my mind are quality and health.  The quality of the food that is delivered is top of the line.  I live in an area where to get the best produce, I need to travel 15 minutes to a higher end grocery store.  That for me is not a problem, but what I have found is that their produce just doesn't compare to what I am getting through Hello Fresh.  I did a shopping trip to recreate some of our favorite meals and found that I did not have any savings and the Bok Choy that I ended up bringing home had perhaps a day left in it.  My Hello Fresh produce can easily sit for a few days before I use it.  Secondly, it has improved our health.  The meals are balanced and when left to our own cooking well things just don't always go that well.  We have learned to enjoy new foods that I would have not imagined would become favorites.  We now purchase brussel sprouts in bulk.

 

I have had my mom visit for two of our Hello Fresh meals and she agrees that the quality and taste is excellent.  Our last meal was a very simple encrusted chicken, but the taste was superior to anything I have ever tried to make on  my own.  You can win the giveaway even if you are already a member of Hello Fresh, so sign up to try a delicious week using my code 8UAUKY for $40 off.  Try it and if you like it order again!

For Mother's Day week there is an amazing selection available.  We are fortunate enough to get a sneak peek at the offerings. With all this variety I am sure you will find something to love!
  1. Apricot Chicken
  2. Meatloaf, Gravy, Baby Carrots, Turnips
