Local Organic Experimenting

I love food. It’s pretty obvious. Food is the best.

So I should be more conscience of what exactly I’m putting into my body. Thankfully, this seems to be a trendy and popular topic. This means that I can easily find information, research, articles, and so many other people looking into this topic with great information as well.

I want to start eating more “real” food. You know, foods you know, can pronounce, and are amazing for your health. That being said, I don’t have time to search for local farms or visit farmer’s markets every week. I also don’t have time to have my own tiny garden again because of how little I’m at home to tend it. And the fact that the chickens would eat it up before I could. Rude!

I found a great little website called Greenling. It’s a delivery service that will deliver to your house local and/or organic produce. They also inform you of what’s in season and which farms your food is coming from. A DREAM COME TRUE!

I just had to try.

Let’s talk about the food. I got “juicing” oranges. They were not pretty. They were a little smooshy. Little did I know that these were optimum oranges to be transformed into juice. This made the best, most delicious orange juice I have ever tasted in my entire life. WOW.

I also bought butter lettuce and tomatoes. The texture and color of both is amazing. The taste is, for lack of a better word, real.

I think we are going to try this service on and off. The price is just a bit more than what I’m interested in (but that’s because you are supporting local farms directly AND it’s getting delivered straight to your front door).

One thought on “Local Organic Experimenting

  1. I think one thing that is great about cooking is that you know exactly what is going into each meal. You’re also going to use less salt and butter than restaurants use. I get a fruit and vege box delivered once ever few weeks. I don’t do it every week because sometimes I crave certain things (like mushrooms) that never seem to arrive in the box. Add to this a monthly shop at our local free-range (but cheap) butcher and we have a lot whole or real food to get through. I would love to raise my own chickens too!
