What in the world did I do before there was such thing as recipe delivery services?! I am obsessed with my meal deliveries, truly I am. I also kind of feel like I am a bit of a pro when it comes to these kind of subscription boxes because I have tried a few different companies and have been receiving regular deliveries for more than a year now. In regards to HelloFresh Canada specifically, I have received a 6 or 7 deliveries from them now and feel like I am really getting to know subscription and have really been enjoying my deliveries over the last couple months.
Today we are having a quick look at my October HelloFresh Canada delivery, I receive one delivery each month. I will be posting the recipes over the next week. Today I just want to show you what the box looks like when it arrives, and give you some details on your subscription options.
HelloFresh Canada has recently expanded their shipping locations to include – Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia, and the Maritimes. This is awesome!! If you are thinking about giving this subscription a try, here are your options:

Note: Recipe selection is limited. The Pronto Plan and Family Plan only offer 4 recipe options per week and the Veggie Plan only provides 3 recipes which means with the Veggie Plan you do not get to choose your recipes.
I review the veggie plan each month. Here’s a quick look at the recipes I received in this month’s delivery….
Creamy Butternut Squash and Sage Gratin with Cremini Mushrooms and Honey-Dijon Green Salad
Oh how we could sing the praises of butternut and sage, they go together like a culinary love story! The sweet, warm flavours of this blissful dish will wrap you up like a warm hug and have you going back for more!
Cannellini Bean Veggie Burger with Chipotle Mayo and Coleslaw
These filling burgers are a delicious way to enjoy a vegetarian meal. Finishing with a tangy, smoky mayo and buttery brioche bun turns this burger up a notch!
Tex-Mex Risotto with Corn, Red Bell Pepper and Monterey Jack Cheese
We’re not food purists by any means: we say, if something tastes good, why not run with it? Which is exactly the case in this transcontinental, mixed-up, mashed-up risotto that features some distinctly non-Italian flavors. Jalapeño, corn, and Monterey jack cheese give it a Tex-Mex edge, adding some larger-than-life personality to the extra-creamy grains of rice.
HelloFresh Canada Review October 2017 – Final Thoughts
One of the things I’ve come to appreciate about my HelloFresh Canada deliveries is the fact that with the veggie option I don’t have to choose my recipes, they just automatically show up at my door. The veggie option includes 3 new recipes each week, all of which are chosen for you. No need to login to your account, the work is done for you. I find this to be convenient and easy. Some of the portions are a little small, but this works out perfect for me as I often make my recipes for lunch. If I were to make them for dinner when the BF is in town I would probably have to add a side dish for him, but that’s not a problem at all. HelloFresh is extremely thorough with their recipes, which is another feature I love. Each recipe includes prep time, difficulty level, nutritional info, detailed instructions, a printable PDF if needed, and they also let you know if it contains dairy, wheat, sulphites, egg, etc. Stay tuned as we will be posting each recipe over the next few days……
