Hi loves! In this article I am not writing about fashion or beauty, but about food. Because 1, we all love food. And 2, we all need food. Only thing I do not like about it? The recipe stress! When making my shopping list I never know what to cook. Thanks to the new foodboxes trend, this stress is gone! I tried out two different boxes, Hello Fresh and Foodbag, and I’ll give you an honest comparison.
Let’s start off with Hello Fresh, I think they are the most well-known foodbox brand in Belgium. I already tried their boxes a couple of times, but never really liked it because I couldn’t choose the meals I wanted, you just had a certain box and had to take these recipes. But now you can choose the meals you like the most yourself. And even better news, they now also offer a quick&easy box for people who don’t have a lot of time and want to cook fast & healthy. I tried out this box and really liked it, the recipes are indeed done after 25 minutes and are full of vegetables. My favorite recipe of this box was the chicken with cranberries. So yummy! A bit of a minus, you need to be into ‘exotic’ flavors. My boyfriend really likes the simple meat-potatoes-vegetables combinations and isn’t such a big fan of the unknown Hello Fresh flavours.
Foodbag is a brand I did not yet know or try out but I absolutely loved this one! They also have different boxes like Original, Easy Dinner and even a Sana box full of Sandra Bekkari recipes, so yummy! This time I chose the Foodbag Easy Dinner, which is perfect for people who love the more typical food with a fun twist. Even though this box is a bit more expensive, I really loved the recipes. The box is called ‘Easy Dinner’, and all the recipes are indeed not that difficult but they take around 35-45 minutes, which is sometimes a bit too long in my opinion.
In short, are you into the typical Begian food but with a twist? Then Foodbag is perfect for you! Fancy something more experimental? Hello Fresh is your thing! They will make you discover a whole lot of new flavors.
