We are getting busier and busier, yet increasingly, more and more interested in food and cooking, but how can we fit planning a delicious meal, shopping for it, and cooking it into our busy schedules?

Some of us (luckily enough), have the time for this, but more and more I am seeing people who say they simply ‘don’t have time to shop AND cook’…

Funnily enough, I was recently contacted by a company called ‘Hello Fresh’, to see if I wanted to try out their product. Hello Fresh is a Sydney based company, which delivers recipes and all the ingredients you need for each recipe to your door, so all you need to do is follow the instructions, and cook a delicious meal, and I must say I was intrigued.

A box was delivered to our office here at BJC Health, and inside was all the ingredients that I would need to make beef and lemongrass stir-fry for two people - all I had to do was cook it!

I was very impressed with the quality of the ingredients I received, and I loved that I was getting to try something a bit different (that was also a surprise) that I can add into my memory bank of recipes; I make stir-fry all the time, but mine would usually use some different ingredients.

The only issue that I can see so far is if you have very specific food requirements, such as intolerances, this may be difficult. That said, I think this is a great concept for those of you who a) find it tough to find time to get to the shops, but enjoy having a home cooked meal, or b) those who are feeling a bit stuck for recipe ideas and want to try something different.
