This showed up on my door steps yesterday

And I May have squealed a tiny bit.

Two weeks ago I found a groupon for $11, for a $25 box of organic fruits/veggies delivered right to your door. As I was clicking the check out button my husband forwarded me the groupon w a title- We should try this in the header. Great minds think alike!!

Inside of the box looked like this.
And after I unwrapped it all, like this.
Two apples, three peppers, 4 tomatoes, 2 oranges, a mango, a head of lettuce, a bunch of spinach and carrots, all organic, all for $11!! Hooooly steal! I'm not sure if it is as much of a steal for $25-but soon I  go to Whole Foods or Vitamin Cottage where we usually shop, I will get all of these things and see the price difference. We shall see! But I love the idea of having a 'surprise' box of fruit and veggies show up on my doorstep every Thursday. Will make me have to get more creative w/ foods since I never know what fruits and veggies I'll get!

Jasper immediately dug into the fruit and ate an apple and a banana for a snack. I tried a bit of the apple- and it was juicy and crunchy, exactly what I want my apple to taste like!

This morning he ate the mango and other banana for breakfast w/ some yogurt. Not a bite was left- if that tells you anything. And mango isn't a usual fruit i pick up at the store- but J LOVED it, so I'm glad we got it.

Last night I made a delicious veggie taco on pita bread- an idea stolen borrowed from the lovely I just sauteed some green peppers in some oil, threw it on a whole wheat pita halve, added some tomato, lettuce, cheese and sour cream. Simple- healthy yet Suuuper delicious. Even the meatarian hubby asked for seconds (and thirds) and jasper ate seconds also! Which isn't that surprising since he's the healthiest little eater I know.

And lastly- my lunch today. A little salad with my organic lettuce, spinach and carrots with a small..okay, large, piece of brie and crackers. This post it making me hungry-time to go get the brie back out.


  1. This is so cool. I had no idea they did this :)

  2. Yeah it's brilliant!! :) Wish I would have come up with it!
