Hello Fresh have a “$30 off on orders over $30″ coupon which allows you to order a classic box of delicious recipes and all the necessary ingredients (enough for 5 meals for two people) costing just $69.
Every week Hello Fresh chefs create amazing recipes that are easy to prepare. The recipes ensure that your diet is balanced and varied, assuming you eat only what they give you – if you add your own junk food during the week, it’s less balanced!
They then source “only the highest-quality and freshest produce”, which they deliver along with the recipes to your door every Tuesday.
In your box you’ll find everything you need to cook the meals, with recipes typically taking 30 minutes or less to prepare.
The ‘point’ of the service is that you ‘re cooking good quality, healthy, fresh meals in very little time, without trips to the supermarket. These are especially ideal if you live alone or cook for one only, or even for mums or dads who get home from work and then start thinking about what to cook for dinner. By the time you’ve browsed the fridge, opted for a takeaway menu, got everyone’s orders, and had food delivered, you could have had a fresh, healthy meal for the same price or less.
As a comparison, I visited the Hello Fresh website and selected their “Classic Box” with enough food for two people over five days. I then looked at one of the basic recipes that they would deliver for this week (Fresh Tomato Pasta). The ingredients are:
- red onion
- chilli (optional)
Doing an online shop at Coles, and going for everything in the smallest quantities, this shop would cost me $10.72.
Using this coupon, you’ll be paying $6.90 per meal. It works out maybe a $1 or $2 more expensive than Coles – but you still have to drive and use time and energy on the shop, not to mention the random off-shopping-list things we all pick up every time you walk into a shopping centre.
Also, this was a vegetarian meal. There was no meat or dairy, which you can be sure would bring the price difference up somewhat.
Realistically $6.90 is a very good price for minimal effort!
The Coupon Code you need to pop in at the Hello Fresh checkout is: FRESHX3772. I’m not sure how long the offer will be available, so don’t miss out!
