Our Plans

Can I choose my meals?
Yes! If you sign up for our Classic box subscription, you can choose 3, 4 or 5 recipes for two people each week, or 3 recipes for four people. You can make your meal choice after you go through the sign up process! This way you know what you'll be cooking and can plan ahead for your other meals! You can now also select our Family Box, which includes family-friendly recipes for four people. Unfortunately, we cannot yet offer choice for our Family and Vegetarian subscription. But we are working on it! You choose the meals you get by logging on to your account page page and clicking on the "Meal Choice" tab and you will see the 5 options for this upcoming week. If you like the 3 highlighted, nothing more needs to be done. If you'd like to switch one meal for another, uncheck the meal, and then select whichever you'd prefer. The changes will save automatically.
Do your offer vegetarian plans?
Yes! We offer a vegetarian HelloFresh box which includes 3 tasty vegetarian meals per week.
Do you offer plans for people with special dietary requirements?
While we don't offer specific dietary plans, because our ingredients are delivered to you in separate packets, if you have any specific dislikes you can simply omit or replace these ingredients from a recipe. You can learn more about the ingredients we use in the Our Suppliers section.
Do you offer plans for singles?
Our entry level subscription feeds 2 people. We have many single-person households as customers who chose the 3-meal plan for 2 people, and gain eternal popularity with their friends or have amazing leftovers for lunch!

  • Have the box delivered to your work place.
  • Have the box delivered to a nearby business or restaurant that won't mind you picking up the box at a later time that day.

Will my groceries stay fresh for the week?
Your groceries will stay fresh for the duration of the week. Our recipes are created using ingredients that stay fresh long enough for you to enjoy them in the week you have received them. If we include ingredients that need to be used sooner rather than later (such as fish) we suggest that you prepare them at the beginning of the week.
Where do you get your recipes?
HelloFresh works closely on recipe development with a team of in-house chefs who've graduated from the Institute of Culinary Education and other esteemed Culinary Schools. Our in-house dietitian Rebecca reviews each recipe, ensuring you get a balanced meal on the table!
What do the recipe difficulty levels mean?
Level 1 recipes are all about simplicity and familiarity. They involve little multi-tasking and may require only 1-2 pots and pans.
Example: Honey-and-Ginger-Glazed Chicken with Snap Peas and Jasmine Rice
Level 2 recipes involve a bit more multi-tasking and concentration. They encourage you to experiment with different ingredients and cooking techniques.
Example: Vietnamese-Marinated Steak with Herb Salad, Quick Pickled Veggies, and Jasmine Rice
Level 3 recipes take it up a notch with the most amount of multitasking and a wide variety of adventurous ingredients and cooking techniques that are still totally doable.
Example: Spring Asparagus and Shrimp Risotto with Meyer Lemon
Why is HelloFresh a healthy option?
Cooking with fresh ingredients helps you stay healthy and beats any type of convenience food, frozen food or fast food.

Since our chefs and nutritionists create and select recipes on a weekly basis, they are able to ensure that your diet is balanced and provides all the nutrients you need for a healthy lifestyle.
How many calories do your meals have?
Roughly speaking our meals contain anywhere from 500-800 calories each.
Which ingredients do you assume I have at home?
All you need to have available at home is salt, pepper, sugar, a good cooking oil, and butter. We'll give you the rest!
