Switching our Lifestyle to Fresh Food Meals with HelloFresh and Fresh Pet

Thank you Freshpet for sponsoring this post. Check out Freshpet refrigerated pet food, made with fresh, all natural ingredients and no artificial preservatives, truly making a difference you can see and your pet will feel!

Guess what? We’re 5 weeks away from our little one’s arrival! So you bet hubby, and I are extremely ecstatic and thrilled. As I have been sharing (tirelessly) on my updates, I am still coping with morning sicknesses. If that isn’t enough of a challenge, I just got diagnosed with gestational diabetes. That’s why it is essential, now more than ever, for me to eat healthily. But many of you would undoubtedly agree with me when I say that eating healthy (and fresh can be so tricky! That’s why we are fortunate that the concept of HelloFresh food delivery came to the picture.

No more waiting in lines or waddling my way through the grocery aisle looking for ingredients. Eating fresh, delicious, and healthy meals have been made so much more comfortable and convenient. One thing we know for sure, embarking on a new lifestyle change is easier to do with the Whole Family! That means making sure our fur baby Pebbles, gets to enjoy fresh meals too – which is made possible with the help of FreshPet.

Let me share a quick breakdown …

Fresh Food for You

HelloFreshPIN IT!

HelloFresh is a food delivery service with a mission to save home cooking. The company is interested in showing people how fun and easy cooking can be instead of just delivering them the final product. They aim to help their clients enjoy all the things to love about not only eating—but cooking as well!

It is a complete breath of fresh air from the usual food delivery service because they deliver fresh pre-packaged ingredients instead of cooked meals!

The ingredients come with step-by-step recipes that allow you to enjoy whipping up unique and flavorful meals. The easy-to-follow recipes take 30 minutes so you can whip up these meals, no matter how busy your schedules are.

HelloFreshPIN IT!

HelloFresh delivers all-natural and fresh ingredients which are far from the canned goods and frozen meats that I usually work with. And their recipes are absolutely Ahh-mazing—I would never come up with those on my own!

Fresh Food for Your Pet

And since my husband and I are already eating healthy and fresh, we also want Pebbles to enjoy delicious, healthy meals. After all, she is a part of growing family. Thankfully, FreshPet got us covered!

Unlike most pet foods, FreshPet is an all-natural pet food that contains no additives and preservatives. The fridge is the only preservative you will EVER need! It also doesn’t have any meat powder, chicken meals or meat by-products.

FreshPet food products resemble the appearance of the classic American meatloaf because it is made with real US meat and vegetables. In fact, you would even see and distinguish chunky real vegetable pieces!

The 30-Day Plan

Derek, Pebbles and I started our 30-day lifestyle change. My husband and I are enjoying a 4-week subscription which includes 3 meals (good for 2 people) a week. The delivery service offers different plans like Family Plan and Veggie Plan so you can choose the right one that will suit your needs and lifestyle the best. On the other hand, Pebbles will be enjoying 30 days’ worth of FreshPet products.

Honestly, I am so excited, and I can’t wait to see how this change can benefit our growing little family (as well as my health). If you’ve been eyeing HelloFresh as well as FreshPet and have been considering it for your family, make sure to stay tuned for my future updates!

At this day and age, eating and cooking meals made of fresh ingredients seems like a farfetched idea. How can we find fresh fruits, meat and produce when canned goods, fast foods, and junk foods are all around us? With HelloFresh, you can bring back freshness to your meals. And with FreshPet, your pet can get to enjoy fresh foods to and you can #FreshWithYourPet!

    I’ve always wanted to try one of these services. I like the idea of fresh groceries being delivered right to my door.

  • Charnita Fance

    Good decision. I’ve been wanting to try Hello Fresh myself but I cannot afford it. I sure wish there were more affordable alternatives – everything I’ve found is just too much money.

  • Hunter S. Jones

    Is this the best idea ever, or what? My husband’s heard about this–we love to eat fresh, healthy food–and he loves to cook. We’re going to give it a try based on your insight! No pet tho…but if we had one, they would eat good food, too. Thanks!

  • Kristi mcallIster

    Now this is pretty awesome! Most of the meal delivery businesses I’ve heard of deliver it asssembled, but I like the idea of a box with all the ingredients to do it yourself! And I also love love love that they have a pet line as well. I’m totally checking this one out and trying it for myself! Congrats on your little bundle of joy arriving soon!

  • Akamatra

    These look amazing. We have chosen a way of eating as a family that includes only fresh foods and nothing over refined (well except some sugar free chocolate that is, lol)

  • Erica Schwarz

    I have been considering signing up for a service like this. This food sounds fresh and delicious, I thing my family will go for it!

    I love this cleaner living and eating concept! Fresh is def key to leading that kind of lifestyle. And I love how the pets are included on the healthy living as well!!

  • Yona Williams

    That HelloFresh meal looks so good. It’s definitely something that I would like to eat because it really looks so fresh and clean! My pooch would like anything really, but I know that grain free is the best way to go. I hope all goes well with the gestational diabetes.

  • Rachel

    First off..I love you guys!! Second.. This is simply an awesome way to get fit, eat healthy and enjoy it as you go. Hello fresh hasn’t made it into our home yet, but we did think about it!! We definitely will enter into the givaway too!! 2nd..We have a kitty, so I am not sure if Fresh Pet makes cat meals too but that would be pretty awesome to try if they did!

  • Tanvi Rastogi

    I have never tried one of these services but looking at your post I definitely want to give it a shot in the coming weeks.

    This is so awesome! I’ve always wanted to try one of these services before. It’s so neat that you get all the natural ingredients instead of ready made meals.

    Both services are pretty awesome! and super easy to follow and make. I actually felt like I could cook!
