Bring On The Fresh Food 🤤
A couple of years ago, I used to get HelloFresh delivered weekly. If you've not heard of it, it's a meal subscription box. You get the ingredients for three, four or five meals per week (with recipe cards) delivered to your door.
I was still living at home and I was paying for it for my mum and I. Being a vegetarian, they only offer three meals a week, but for three meals I found it to be quite an expensive option so I cancelled it.
Now I am adulting and living on my own, I thought I would give it a go again (especially with the supermarkets as they are!). The three meals cover me for six days and I find the portions to be a perfect size for me. Isn't it impossible to judge pasta portion sizes for one person?!
I had my first box delivered yesterday and was so happy to see all of the fresh and healthy ingredients. I have been guilty of eating carby meals as they are generally quick and easy - I eat a lot of pasta, bread, pizza etc.
I find that the HelloFresh recipes are easy to follow but they're varied and introduce you to lots of new flavours! First up, I had Indian Chickpea Kofta's which smelt absolutely incredible. I love getting to play with lots of different herbs and spices.
One thing that is particularly handy for Diabetics is that HelloFresh work out the Nutritional Value of each meal once prepared, so it's nice and easy to bolus 💪🏻 I often find it a challenge working out how many carbs are in a meal with lots of different ingredients.
I find that cooking helps me to unwind after a busy day. I'm also appreciating having something to occupy my time during lockdown and am looking forward to eating more healthy food!
The first meal was delicious and I'm excited to try the other two recipes for this week 🤤 I've also discovered the new feature that you can now have wine and GU desserts added to your box 😉 will definitely be utilising that!
