What is HelloFresh?

HelloFresh will send you a box of fresh ingredients sourced directly from the farmer along with some recipes created by in-house chefs, every week. All you have to do is cook.

HelloFresh Delivery

Where Does HelloFresh Deliver?
HelloFresh now delivers across the United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland). To confirm that HelloFresh can deliver to your address, enter your postcode at the checkout. Exceptions include islands off the coast of mainland U.K. and the Scottish Highlands.
What if You're Not Home for Delivery?
When checking out, you can provide instructions on what to do if you’re not at home to accept your delivery. In fact, most customers are not present when the food is delivered. Some customers simply ask for their box to be left in a shed, with a neighbour or outside their front door. Whatever your personal circumstances, HelloFresh’s friendly drivers will do their best to find a way to make HelloFresh work for you.
How Do the Ingredients Stay Fresh During Delivery?
Don’t worry if you’re not in – all boxes are packaged using speciality insulation and environmentally friendly cooling agents in order to keep your groceries fresh (whatever the weather) for up to 30 hours!

What Recipes Does HelloFresh Have?

How Many Calories Do HelloFresh Meals Have?

HelloFresh describes their food as nutritious and well-balanced. If you would like your dinner to be low in calories, you can choose their “low calorie” menu preference after you’ve ordered your preferred box and all meals within that box are 600 calories or less.

Is HelloFresh Healthy?

Cooking with fresh ingredients helps you stay healthy and beats any type of convenience food, frozen food or fast food. By preparing your meals with fresh ingredients you ensure that important nutrients aren’t lost. In addition, HelloFresh’s chefs create our recipes to ensure a balanced diet. Since the chefs and nutritionists create and select recipes on a weekly basis, they are able to ensure that your diet is nutritious and provide all the nutrients you need for a healthy lifestyle.
To help you understand what you’re eating every recipe card lists the calories, saturated fat, carbohydrates and protein in each meal. You can also view these for your upcoming meals by heading to recipes.

Is HelloFresh Worth it?

That’s hard to say but here are some testimonials  – let’s see what the customers say:

“We are eating a lot healthier, it’s great knowing everything is fresh. We are even losing weight! A win win situation! Look forward to the box arriving and my daughter helps out in the kitchen now, taking a real interest and getting excited about cooking.”

 

“HelloFresh has allowed my wife and I to spend more time together. It has made meal times interesting again. Before I used to do all the cooking, and my wife would be doing other things. Now we cook together. We are learning new techniques and having fun doing it.” – Adam & Kate
“It really has changed my life. No more microwave meals, no more random concoctions of courgette based meals and no more 9pm supermarket dashes. I eat well and for the first time in my life, I actually enjoy cooking. I’ve never particularly enjoyed planning meals – it always stressed me out; Hello Fresh has taken this stress out of my life…” – Louise

As somebody who occasionally enjoys fish, I would love to have the option to choose a fish meal sometimes. That Moroccan spiced cod,above, looks great.
