I am so excited! On Thursday, I got my second box from ‘farm fresh to you‘. It’s a local community-supported agriculture project, that collects the freshest, organic, seasonal fruits and vegetables and delivers them to your doorstep. For a good price. What??
Here’s why I love this idea so much:
1. I get a variety of fruits and vegetables weekly. I tend to stick with the same fruits and vegetables because, well, it’s easy and mindless. And while I usually love most of them, it’s become a routine to get apples, bananas, carrots, squash and onions. So, with this new box, I get different fruits and vegetables every week and I’m forced to try new recipes and such. So exciting.
2. I also love that I am getting different vitamins and minerals by eating a variety of produce. We all know that we are supposed to get a variety, but how many of us do? With this box, I am forced to get variety. Love.
3. I love eating organic, but let’s face it, it can be expensive and sometimes a hassle. With this place, I feel like the prices are super reasonable, and the quality of organic is just unmatched. And it makes me feel good that I’m doing something so healthy for my family.
And because posts without pictures are boring, here is one of me cooking my favorite soup 🙂
What about you? Have you tried a CSA before? If so, what do you think?
