How I’m Unwinding Post-Thanksgiving with HelloFresh

Geraldine Orentas
ByGeraldine OrentasNov 28, 2023


This year, my husband and I decided to sign up for the ambitious task of hosting Thanksgiving. Picture this: our kitchen is filled with pots and pans, brimming with roasted turkey and pumpkin pie aromas. Around the house, decorations hang in every corner, extra chairs are squeezed in for our guests, and a mountain of leftover containers awaits our attention. It was a memorable experience, buzzing with laughter and clinking glasses, but let's be honest, it was also incredibly exhausting.

As a long-time fan and subscriber of HelloFresh, I knew exactly where to turn in my post-Thanksgiving quest for simplicity. After days of extensive cooking and hosting, having a meal kit that takes care of the planning, shopping, and even portioning was more than appealing – it was a necessity.

Why HelloFresh Is a Lifesaver Post-Feast

1. The Joy of Unboxing

Receiving our HelloFresh box post-Thanksgiving was like unwrapping a gift of simplicity. Each ingredient, neatly pre-portioned and packed, promised a hassle-free cooking experience - a stark contrast to our Thanksgiving kitchen marathon.

2. Easy and Quick Chef-Worthy Meals

Our post-Thanksgiving meals, thanks to HelloFresh, were an adventure in themselves. From quick, 15-minute recipes to international cuisines, each dish brought a sense of exploration and fun that was much needed after the big day.

3. Flexible as Always

What I love about HelloFresh, and what was particularly helpful during this time, is its no-strings-attached policy. The option to skip or cancel is a blessing for those unpredictable weeks following a big event like Thanksgiving.

4. Ease Your Way Back to the Kitchen

The best part about returning to HelloFresh after Thanksgiving was how it rekindled our love for cooking. It turned our kitchen from a post-feast battleground back into a place of creativity and relaxation.

5. Convenient and Eco-Conscious

And it's not just about the ease. Knowing that HelloFresh is committed to sustainability, from using renewable energy to providing recyclable packaging, aligns perfectly with our values, especially after the excesses of the holiday.

Our New Post-Thanksgiving Tradition

Reflecting on our Thanksgiving hosting adventure, we're grateful for the laughter, the shared meals, and the festive spirit. But we're equally thankful for the return to simplicity with HelloFresh.

It's become more than just a meal service for us; it's a way to decompress, to enjoy cooking again without the pressure, and to bring a sense of order and joy back into our kitchen after the Thanksgiving whirlwind.
