Everywhere you go, you hear about organics this, organics that. It can get overwhelming because the word "organic" can mean anything. I'm no expert when it comes to healthy eating, but I know that not everything labeled organic...is truly...well...organic. While it's best to put naturally grown vegetables and meats inside my body, it's just not economically feasible to do so. And I know some may argue that as long as you value it, eating healthy can be doable on any salary. Don't get me wrong, healthy living is one of many priorities in our current life. We choose our organic products carefully and sometimes one trip to Whole Foods amounts to over $100 with barely a basket full of produce.
That's why when my friend Marla told me about Full Circle, I was immediately intrigued.
Full Circle here in Washington was started by a couple who had a passion for providing locals with good, organically grown food. They've since grown and partnered with other local farmers, but the best thing about them is that they deliver produce right to your doorstep!!! You can opt to sign up for a standard or family sized box to be delivered every other week. Chris and I opted for the standard box because Marla said the amount of veggies in the box should last a good week or two for two adults. You receive an email from them the week when they are due to deliver with a menu of items included in your shipment. You can then go online and customize if you want to select more of one item vs. another. You can also skip shipments or cancel all together without any penalty. That's not all, rumors have it that deliveries arrive prior to 6 am on Thursdays...before you go to work. So before you leave, you can put your shipment right in the fridge.
So...what's the best part about this? The price of course! Each shipment costs only $35...shipping included. I don't know about you but I think a box full of organic, locally grown veggies for $35 is a steal of a deal! I'm excited to try the different veggies I'll get. It'll force me to be more creative with my cooking, that's for sure. My first shipment comes next Thursday and I will definitely be posting about it!
