HelloFresh categorizes this meal as a breakfast according to the recipe card. I think this would make a divine breakfast but it is just a little too much work for me to do while on my first cup of coffee. Don’t get me wrong, I love a hot breakfast. In fact, I have a hot breakfast pretty much every day! I can cook a veggie omelet with one eye closed and one hand on that coffee mug; but this recipe was just a bit too involved for that level of attention (or rather that lack of attention…).

There is a need for education about food and nutrition and people seek out RD’s opinions; but this does not make our opinions valuable to anyone other than ourselves. Our opinions have no place in someone else’s dietary choices (except maybe our partners or children… and boy-hardy don’t they feel lucky to live with RDs #sarcasm). Let’s try to stop focusing on being right, stop talking so much, and start listening more. Let’s focus on helping people be real with their food choices instead of making them feel “bad” for not eating “right.” Let’s use our expertise to give people evidence-based information instead of our opinions.
I was so excited to make this meal! The pictures on the recipe card look amazing! This recipe was prepared on a work-night and did not take much time from start to finish. This recipe is definitely more cost effective from #HelloFresh than if you had purchased ingredients from the store! Final review: This meal is flavorful yet subtle and is made with familiar foods – I will be making this meal again!
The instructions were easy to follow and the pictures helped to keep me on track. One thing that really impressed me, since some of my clients are newbies in the kitchen, is that even a novice cook could make this meal beautifully. HelloFresh is a great way to gain experience in the kitchen and build confidence as there was nothing complex or confusing and the result is a beautiful and delicious – and fast – meal!

This meal delivery box could not have arrived at a better time. My hubs and I had just gotten back from an out-of-state trip with an 11-hour travel day the day before this box showed up on my doorstep. It took all the effort I had to shoot the video of opening the box as I just wanted to dig in and get to cooking a meal for dinner; but I wanted you to have the first-timer experience just like I was about to have. So, this. This is what it is like to open up your first meal delivery box!
As a practicing dietitian and health coach, I’ve talked to many people about how to use food to improve health. People want to eat healthy food – but they won’t give up flavor, enjoyment, convenience, or pay too much for that healthy food. I get it. Me too! But after my clients tell me they know they should cook at home; they follow up with how they don’t have the time… they don’t know what to make… or they don’t think they have the skills to cook if it involves more than heating something up.
