Hello Fresh!

My family was recently given this great opportunity by  Mosaic Reviews to review a Hello Fresh box. To view more reviews click this link: 

The company sent us a box in return for my honest review.

Hello fresh is a company that delivers boxes of fresh food right to your doorstep. not only is this food fresh and good, but it is already put together into meals with recipe cards for you. All you have to do is cook it. Everything is clearly labeled, and seasonings, meats, veggies are all included in your shipment.
These are the three meals my family received:

Sautéed Chicken with parsnips & Carrots

Classic Beef Stew

Yogurt Marinated Shrimp

All three meals were simple to make, but they were still very nutritious and flavorful.
Anyone who reads my blog or follows me on FB or Instagram, knows that the food served regularly at my house needs to be healthy.

The only drawback for the meals for me personally is that I can't be more picky with them. While I am okay with serving my family these foods, they are definitely nutritiously dense, I don't make it a habit to include some of the starches that were included in the recipes.

I WAS very pleased to see as many vegetables 

Two things you should know about my family and food:

1. I burn almost everything I make.
2. I have an extremely picky family.

I didn't have a problem with either of those things with the help fresh box. The directions were so clear and all the ingredients were separated perfectly. I didn't have to think much, and still got the joy of whipping up some amazing food in the kitchen.

And it was amazing.

My family ate it. Even my husband tried everything. He even. ate. his vegetables. Unless he was feeding our dog under the table when I wasn't looking, he cleared his plate. He's not one for vegetables. Hello Fresh gets huge bonus points from me for that.

We will use Hello Fresh in the future. Because of our food budget it will not be on a regular basis, but it will be happening. It will be great for a holiday, or dinner party, having any kind of company over, or for a super stressful(Busy) week at home.

The fact that someone else puts together a delicious recipe, shops for me, then just tells me what to do in a step by step process -with pictures- is magical. A working mom's dream come true.
When they come up with crockpot meals I'll be the first one to let you know!

Hello Fresh Boxes come in a few variations:
The Classic Box: $69 for 3 (2 person) meals. Or $129 for 3 (4 person) meals.
The Vegetarian Box: $59 for 3 (2 person) meals. Or $109 for 3 (4 person) meals.

You can opt to get one box a week, or change the schedule to fit your needs. You can also pause your subscription at any time(or even cancel it for any reason). The delivery is punctual, at least from our experience, and the boxes are very well insulated and packed with ice packs to keep the food very fresh.

Best part about this? Hello Fresh has given a code for 20 $ off for all of my readers to use on their first order! Just type in the code CT6KU2 when you place your first order!


A big thank you to

Just another story.

I have been told telling my story will help.. people. I don't see how that is the case but I figure there is some reason I have dealt with the things that I have. So I'll start out simple.


Crippling. Suffocating. Like a straight jacket warn under water.

Sounds so dramatic. So exaggerated. But it's so real. There's a quote that describes it perfectly "You don't need water to feel like you're drowning, do you?" no. I don't.

I've always had anxiety. for as long as I remember. After I had my youngest child it got significantly worse. It was no longer a panic attack that I would get over once I figured out or was proven everything would be okay. It was tightness in my chest all night and I didn't know why. It was someone is going to get sick and I know that will kill us all. It was sleeping in his room every night for months. It was waking up every few hours to check his breathing. It was my daughter has a sore tooth it's all goi…

Meal Prep Monday 11/25/13

My days are a haze of dishes laundry sweeping meal prep dog poop people poop making people foods and watching people eat cake and pizza. And Ice cream.  I never realized how much junk food I was surrounded by until very recently.  But it's cool. I have coconut butter, dates, coffee and Lara bars. Life is good. :)
Sun- chicken "fingers" and sweet potato fries with mixed veg.
M- Shrimp and (leftover) chicken and "fried riced cauliflower"
T- chicken tortilla-less soup
W- breakfast for dinner - self explanatory. Easy. Cheap. Favorite.
Th- thanksgiving !! At someone else's house ;)
Fri- taco night. I have renamed pizza night taco night. Because I can. Because I'm mom. This week will be ground turkey tacos because it's the cheapest if bought in  bulk.
Sat- leftovers

Breakfast: I made myself a frittata and  hubby has breakfast sandwiches I make him. He's super picky about healthy foods and if left to his own devices lives off bagel bites and chips. Which …

Whole30 again? Why?

I'm on day 9 of a whole30. I've done them before and I eat FAIRLY decent(I have my moments) but I felt like it was time to do another.
I was feeling fatigued, anxious, depressed, and my skin was atrocious. I wasn't sleeping well and my hormones were very obviously out of whack. I know a whole 30 improves all of these things so much so my goal was to just jump in and do one. I know how this goes, I've read all the books, I've done a handful of them within the last few years, and I am not new to meal prep. In fact, I have had several false starts in all of January and February of 2017 and I meal prepped almost every weekend of said months. My best friend said that she was ready to do one after a long time of considering it and I jumped on board. Something clicked this time and I have so far been successful.
Why am I doing it this time.
Besides the obvious benefits everyone explains about a whole30, I specifically wanted to feel my best mentally and physically because…
