Have y'all ever tried Hello Fresh? It's a food subscription service that delivers fresh produce and meats with wonderful recipes directly to your home. Recipes include easy to follow step-by-step instructions, and all nutritional information is included on the recipe cards. Shipping is free, and if you do the math, it's a very good value. The only thing you need in your kitchen is salt, pepper, sugar, and olive oil. Everything you need to cook delicious and nutritious meals is delivered to your door.
I call this adventure eating because I'm learning new techniques and dishes I wouldn't have tried on my own. Subscribers do get a choice of three (from five) dishes per week, so there is some choice involved. We haven't had a bad meal yet, and some we enjoyed so much I saved the recipes and have cooked again.
I also love the convenience of taking the meals to the lake cabin with us. It makes planning and packing much easier!
Another plus: there is no waste. I've spent a fortune on spices and ingredients for recipes with tons left over that I never use again. I think this is the perfect service for a small, active family or empty nesters! Most of the time we have just enough left over for one person's lunch the next day, but not always. But we've never left the table hungry.
A few days ago, I cooked a Crispy Falafel Salad. It was delicious, and it's something I would not normally choose to cook.
