I am the world’s worst planner ever! Aarrgh!
I hate everything about planning and organizing. And cooking? Well, let’s just say the kitchen is not my happy place. I would rather be elsewhere than chopping and prepping food.
Busy Weeknight Meals Made Easy with Hello Fresh
I do love to develop recipes and come up with new meal ideas but doing it every day? No way! It would be awesome if food magically appears on our dinner table each night after a long day at work.
My disposition towards planning and cooking goes hand in hand with a third pet peeve which is grocery shopping. Yep! No grocery lines for me. That’s the reason why my Husband does most of the grocery shopping in our house. Spare me the boring price match, tough grocery decisions and ridiculously long lineups.
These cold hard facts are a challenge when it comes to preparing healthy meals for my family on a daily basis. It is stressful planning the menu, make a list of items to buy, shop the groceries (yuck) and then cook (geez!) So you see, how I WOULD NOT survive doing this regularly?
Is there hope for people like me? If this is the question popping in your mind, I won’t blame you. Because I wondered about that too for a very long time.
This was before Hello Fresh made grand entrance into my life! Oh hello delicious meals, easy recipes, and NO grocery shopping! Say what??

I would love to try out Hello Fresh. I’ve been trying to be good with meal planning but sometimes I’ll run out of meal ideas or don’t have time to go to the grocery store. Hello Fresh sounds like it would help us out a lot! The meals you got sound amazing too.

I’d love to try Hello Fresh. I hate meal planning and don’t get me started on the chopping and dicing and shopping and ….
