HelloFresh


Ich wette, du hast schon mal was von Kochboxen gehört. Vielleicht weißt du nicht viel darüber, aber ziemlich sicher sind sie dir mal auf Instagram, Facebook oder Pinterest begegnet. Und für alle Neulinge unter euch: Kochbox-Anbieter wie HelloFresh liefern Rezepte und alle Zutaten, die du z.B. für 3 Gerichte und 2 Personen brauchst, direkt zu dir nach Hause. Lieferhäufigkeit und Anzahl der Rezepte sind dabei flexibel wählbar. Und du hast ohne großen Aufwand was Leckeres selbst gekocht.

Obwohl mir das Kochbox-Konzept schon lange bekannt ist, hatte ich nie vor sie selbst auszuprobieren. Ich kann sechs oder sieben Rezepte aus dem Effeff zubereiten und habe nicht die Notwendigkeit gesehen einen solchen Service zu nutzen. Bis mich eine Freundin zum Abendessen eingeladen hatte, die bekanntermaßen eine sehr schlechte Köchin ist. Und genau die servierte mir ein super-saftiges Rindersteak mit Champignon-Senf-Soße. Als ich sie fragte, ob der Lieferservice da war, zeigte sie mir die HelloFresh Rezeptkarte. Da kam mir der Gedanke, dass Kochboxen auch für all diejenigen spannend sind, die in der Küche mal etwas Neues ausprobieren wollen.

Ich habe daraufhin direkt eine Box bestellt, um meinen Freund Paul zu überraschen. Die Bestellung ging super einfach und ich konnte die Rezepte ganz nach meinem Geschmack auswählen – gar nicht so leicht, da alle Gerichte sehr lecker aussahen. Ich bin ein großer Fan von Einfachheit, gerade nach der Arbeit, wenn Paul und ich nicht noch 2 Stunden in der Küche stehen wollen. Mit HelloFresh schaffen wir es, in nur 30 Minuten ein leckeres Abendessen zuzubereiten und lernen nebenher noch neue Länderküchen und Zutaten kennen.

Pauls erstes Kommentar am Esstisch war: "Das ist so lecker." Und ich war super stolz auf mich. Das Gericht kam super gut an und ich freue mich, dass wir jetzt endlich eine gemeinsame Routine haben, was kochen angeht. Vielleicht verbinden wir mit „Einfachheit" manchmal etwas, das nicht gut für uns ist, oder langweilig oder nicht lecker. Aber das ist sicher nicht der Fall mit HelloFresh. Uns hat es wirklich inspiriert nicht ständig das Gleiche zu essen und wir sind seither mit 3 Gerichten pro Woche dabei. So haben wir immer noch die Möglichkeit auswärts zu essen. Bei dieser Vielfalt an Rezepten, der bequemen Lieferung und einem Preis ab 2.62€ pro Gericht kann der herkömmlich Einkauf im Supermarkt nicht mithalten.

Wahrscheinlich bist du immer noch ein wenig skeptisch und ja, ich kann es verstehen, denn ich war es auch. Aber ich kann wirklich behaupten: Die Kochboxen haben unsere Art zu kochen nachhaltig verändert. Sich abends keine Gedanken mehr über das Essen zu machen oder einkaufen gehen zu müssen, hat bei uns neue Kochfreude geweckt und macht das Abendessen wieder zu einer entspannten Zeit des Zusammenseins. HelloFresh ist die perfekte Geschenkidee für mehr Quality-Time zusammen!

As a regular lifter, I need workout clothes that are comfortable, high quality, and perform well in sweaty conditions. Like everyone on the planet, I’ve tried Nike and Lululemon apparel, which were solid. But every time I purchased an item my bank account screamed.

After seeing countless ads about Fabletics’ crazy low prices, I decided to see if the hype was real. Could I save money on gym gear without sacrificing quality?

I ordered the One Short Lined 7in, the Go-To Joggers, and the 24/7 Tee to see how they compare to the activewear giants like Nike and Lulu. Here’s a breakdown by clothing type:

Shorts:

Every lifter knows that a good pair of shorts is essential — especially for leg day.

My Nike Unlimited 2-1 Versatile Shorts ($60) are decent, but I’m unimpressed with how they fit. I know it sounds impossible but they are both too big and too small at the same. The liner is tight and constricting while the shorts themselves are huge. The large leg openings also make me look like I skipped leg day, even though I hit them twice a week.

The Pace Breaker Lined Shorts 7" ($78) from Lululemon are definitely high quality and function well. My only complaint is that they’re pretty loose around my thighs, and do not give my quads the justice they deserve. For $78, I expect something that fits a little better.

Now for the Fabletics 7” One Short Lined (2 for $19 when I became a new VIP). These shorts feature a comfortable lining that holds my phone securely while doing any exercise. The fit of these shorts makes my legs look proportionate and toned. Plus, the quality and materials feel the same if not better than Nike and Lululemon. I can’t believe that when I signed up for a Fabletics Men VIP membership I got two of them for only $19!

Joggers:

Similar to my Nike shorts, I’m not a fan of the fit of my Nike Sportswear Tech Fleece Joggers ($125). Although the material feels fantastic, the fit gets pretty tight once I get a leg pump going. Not worth the price in my opinion.

My Lulu Surge Joggers ($118) may look sleek but they just don’t have the stretch I need for deep squats and lunges. I end up wearing them to the office instead of the gym due to their stiff construction.

The Go-To Joggers ($24 when I became a new VIP) from Fabletics is the perfect blend of a casual, loose fit and a sleek, athletic look. I love the zipper pockets that keep my phone safe, and they offer the ultimate stretch for any workout. I also lounge around the house in them all the time cause they’re super cozy. The best part is I can buy 5 pairs of these awesome pants for 1 pair of the others.

Performance Tees:

My Nike Dri-FIT Men's Fitness T-Shirt ($30) is an overall great shirt. I like the color and materials, but the fit of the shirt is a little boxy for me.

The License to Train Short-Sleeve Shirt ($78) from Lululemon fits well and adequately absorbs sweat. My only problem was it started pilling after a few washes.

My 24/7Tee (3 for $19 when I became a new Fabletics VIP) has the ideal fit, features soft, stretchy material, and soaks up sweat like a sponge. After many gym sessions and washes, it still looks awesome. For any lifter looking for quality and affordability, I’d highly recommend this shirt.

Final Thoughts:

The hype is real. Comfortable, durable, and designed with a gym goer in mind, Fabletics Men’s workout clothes perform well and don’t hurt your wallet. Now I hit my workout targets and bank account goals with ease.

Don’t sleep on the premium quality and crazy deals from Fabletics Men!

HelloFresh Review by Hudson, the Passionate Hobby-Chef

For my first week, I ordered the Garlic & Herb Salmon & Roasted Potatoes, the Moroccan Lentil, Currant & Veggie Stew, and the Creole Pork & Zesty Roast Pumpkin Slaw.

I started with the quickest dish — the Mediterranean Salmon — ready in only 30 minutes.

Amazingly, I had no idea how easy and time-saving it is to cook with pre-portioned ingredients. The instructions are easy to follow and even include photos that make the recipes suitable for all abilities.

The salmon was fresh and the Parsley Yoghurt Dip was truly genius. Initially, I expected the meals to be bland, but HelloFresh sends intriguing spices with each recipe. So the Garlic & Herb Seasoning added some surprising flavors to this one — not boring at all!

The Moroccan Lentil, Currant & Veggie Stew took under 30 minutes to prepare and tasted heavenly. The Creole Pork & Zesty Roast Pumpkin Slaw dish is my favourite — so juicy and crispy. I’ll definitely cook this meal again and invite my friends over.

As someone who loves to explore new recipes, HelloFresh offers lots of variety — from good old classics to international delights. I now enjoy trying out all of HelloFresh’s latest combinations and flavours.

HelloFresh Review by Isla, the busy mom who'd rather not

With my busy job, I usually order takeaway to feed my family of 5. Besides the guilt about not feeding my kids homemade meals, it’s expensive! — not to mention boring since we stick to the same restaurants. But cooking is not an option for me. I don't have time to plan meals and shop for all the ingredients. And, honestly, I have little experience in the kitchen.

For some reason, I thought meal kits would be a hassle. But when I went on the HelloFresh site and discovered their Kid-Friendly recipes, I got excited.

For the first week, I went for the Southeast Asian Chicken & Garlic Rice, the Chermoula-Spiced Beef & Rainbow Slaw Tacos, and the Herby Cherry-Glazed Chicken & Garlic Mash.

Some of the dishes looked complicated to cook so I was a bit nervous. But the step-by-step instructions are really helpful. It’s simpler than I thought — even my kids helped along and loved it. All dishes were ready to serve in less than 30 minutes and taste so much better than the reheated takeaway we usually have.

Each HelloFresh meal is packed with seasonal produce, nutritious proteins, and whole grains, ensuring the kids get all the important nutrients. I’m so proud of myself. I can cook such wholesome meals from scratch. And I’m so happy to see my kids' smiles after cleaning up their plates night after night.

Is HelloFresh worth it?

Hudson:

Overall, I enjoy cooking meals that arrive each week with pre-portioned ingredients. It makes the process smooth and I don't miss the supermarket runs — far from it! I was pleasantly surprised with the results. The dishes turn out wonderful and my partner adores them, too. So yes, HelloFresh is completely worth it, if you want to eat delicious meals while saving time and money.

Isla:

While a bit more work than ordering takeaway — and a few more dishes to clean up — this means my kids get to eat nutritious meals. On top of that, we're saving so much money, it's worth sticking with HelloFresh. Meals start at only $6.50 per serving!

HelloFresh Review by Hudson, the Passionate Hobby-Chef

For my first week, I ordered the Baja Salmon & Spinach Garlic Rice, the Warming White Bean & Veggie Soup and the Beef Koftas & Homemade Yoghurt Flatbreads.

I started with the quickest dish — the Mexican-inspired Baja Salmon — ready in only 20 minutes.

Amazingly, I had no idea how easy and time-saving it is to cook with pre-portioned ingredients. The instructions are easy to follow and even include photos that make the recipes suitable for all abilities.

The salmon was fresh and the lemon-yoghurt dip was truly genius. Initially, I expected the meals to be bland, but HelloFresh includes intriguing spices with each recipe. So the Tex-Mex spice blend added some surprising flavors to this one — not boring at all!

The Warming White Bean & Veggie Soup took under 30 minutes to prepare and tasted heavenly. The Beef Koftas dish is my favourite — so juicy and crispy. And the homemade yoghurt flatbreads came out perfectly — fluffy and airy. I’ll definitely cook this meal again and invite my friends over.

Editor’s Note: I used to be a Fabletics VIP Member, but canceled my membership in order to try out other brands. Read this to find out why I restarted my subscription.

As a proud crossfitter, I need workout apparel that’s premium quality, comfortable, and high-performing. My go-to brand used to be Fabletics, but I canceled my VIP membership after my fellow gym goers swore that there are better options out there. Maybe it's worth paying more for other brands if they offer better performance?

So I succumbed to the peer pressure and ditched my subscription to see what Nike and Lululemon had to offer. I bought shorts, tees, and joggers from each brand and here’s my honest comparison:

Shorts:

Every lifter knows that owning a reliable pair of shorts is essential — especially for those brutal leg day circuits.

The Nike Unlimited 2-1 Versatile Shorts ($60) I bought are decent, but I’m unimpressed with how they fit. The liner is pretty tight while the large leg openings make me look like I have chicken legs. I do like the moss green color, but overall these shorts are lackluster.

The Pace Breaker Lined Shorts 7" ($78) from Lululemon are definitely high quality and function well. However, similar to the Nike shorts, they’re pretty loose around my thighs and don’t give my quads the justice they deserve. For $78, I expect something that fits better.

Now for the Fabletics 7” One Short Lined (2 for $19 when you become a new VIP). These shorts feature a comfortable lining that holds my phone and keys securely while doing any exercise. The fit of these actually makes my legs look proportionate and powerful. Plus, the fabric and quality feel the same if not better than Nike and Lululemon. Overall, Fabletics takes the cake in this category.

Joggers:

I purchased Nike’s Sportswear Tech Fleece Joggers ($125) per my friend’s recommendation. Although I like the fit and slim profile, the material feels scratchy and isn’t the most comfortable. Not worth the hefty price tag in my opinion.

The Lululemon Surge Joggers ($118) look really sleek and provide a great stretch for deep squats and lunges. The only problem — my phone tends to fall out of the pocket because they lack side zipper pockets. I end up wearing these more to the office than the gym due to this very reason.

The Go-To Joggers ($24 for new VIP members) from Fabletics are the perfect blend of a casual, loose fit and a sleek, athletic look. I love the zipper pockets that keep my phone safe, and they offer the ultimate stretch for any workout. I also lounge around the house in them all the time cause they’re super cozy. The best part about these is that they only cost a fifth of the price compared to the others.

It’s a close race between Lulu and Fabletics here, but I’d give it to Fabletics for their double zipper pockets and affordable price.

Performance Tees:

I copped Nike’s Dri-FIT Men's Fitness T-Shirt ($30) and it definitely does the job. I like the color and materials, and the price isn’t that bad. My only complaint would be that the fit of the shirt is a little boxy for me.

The License to Train Short-Sleeve Shirt ($78) from Lululemon fits well and adequately absorbs sweat. The fabric is stretchy and soft, but started pilling after a few washes. I’m not sure if this quality is worth the price.

My Fabletics 24/7 Tee (2 for $15 for new VIPs)features an athletic fit and is crafted from soft, stretchy material that soaks up sweat like a sponge. After many gym sessions and washes, it still looks awesome. So when it comes to fit and price, Fabletics edges out the competition.

Final Thoughts:

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. I honestly wish I didn’t listen to my friends because now I’m down a couple hundred bucks and still prefer my original Fableticsgear.

Fabletics Men’s workout apparel performs exceptionally well and doesn’t hurt your wallet when you sign up to become a new VIP. Plus, you can easily avoid getting charged if you skip your membership by the 5th of each month. It’s safe to say that I’m definitely restarting my Fabletics VIP membership and never looking back!
