#CurvaLishFav: Restaurant Quality Food at Home

After at least 40 texts and 10 recipes cooked with members of my family from my blog partner Hello Fresh, I can officially tell you that their services are the most underrated subscription home delivery service I have ever known!

I initially wasn't sure what I would think of Hello Fresh because I itch whenever someone claims that they can help you make healthy, nutritious meals at home. Normally from my experiences, that has meant card board tasting food.

But Hello Fresh not only delivers on their promise of flavorful at-home meals delivered to your door but more importantly to me...I was shocked at how much the food tastes restaurant quality!

They create weekly, subscription service recipes with difficulty ratings (1 to 3) that are diverse in how it appeals to different taste buds.

For example, for this upcoming week, one of the choices is this shrimp and chorizo recipe that's easy as paella!

And don't worry about your current culinary skills. All deliveries include individual boxes for each recipe that includes all ingredients except salt and pepper (other seasonings for recipe are included). They also include recipe cards that give you nutrition information and step by step instructions for preparing the recipes.

I can't say enough about how delicious, healthy (especially compared to fast food), easy, fast (recipes normally can be made in 20 minutes) and restaurant quality the food is...

Even better: I have a great coupon code for you to try it!

Get $50 off any box selection (Classic, Veggie, or Family) by clicking "April50Off" should automatically be applied! Hurry, it expires 4/30/2016!

Here are a few of my absolute favorites from the past three months to give you an idea of the vast weekly selection:

The Healthy Kale in This Ground Pork Ramen was Delicious!!!
Pan-Roasted Chicken with Dijon Mushroom Sauce & Brown Rice

The Peanut Sauce You Make with This Thai Beef Satay is Awesome!!!

Vegetarian Option: Spring Tortellini Gratin, Asparagus & Parmesan was Crazy Good!!

Best Hello Fresh Qualities:
* Flexible subscription service with no hassles
* Diverse, weekly meal selections
* Robust portion sizes for both 2-person and family service
* Competitive pricing on the level of quality meals compared to eating out or your Whole Foods grocery bill

My worst critique of Hello Fresh is that their vegetarian meal selections seem much more limited compared to their regular, meat options menu. Also, as of this post, they don't offer any gluten-free meal selections.

And I plan on using this next level eating for upcoming dinner parties (they will have no idea it's Hello Fresh!), Girl's Night In, etc.

Lastly, I want to share this quote from my foodie sister: "...I don't know what life was like before Hello Fresh!"
