I have a serious love/hate relationship with going to the grocery store. I love the store when I go, it’s not busy and I can get in and out in a reasonable time (i.e. No searching in weird places for that one item that I just reallllly need!). I hate the grocery store when it’s super busy, takes way longer than necessary and when I forget my list at home (THE WORST). While I wish I could subsist on cookies and pound cake all day long, I do need some produce mixed in here and there. It seems like, most of the time, when I go to the store, the biggest thing I need are fruits and veggies to get me through the week. Since, I eat mostly plant based, I obviously go through them pretty quickly and try to pack as many into all my meals as I can. So, when Door to Door Organics reached out and wanted to know if I wanted to try their service, it was met with a ‘heck yeah!’ and some happy dancing in the kitchen. They are not only saving me from my love/hate relationship with the grocery store, but also saving me from myself and eating chocolate chips for dinner.
The Door to Door Organics concept is pretty simple, they deliver a box of fresh, organic produce to your door each week, while you get to add grocery items from their store and sub in different types of produce for ones you can actually use. For example, since I’m not a huge avocado fan, a few weeks in a row I subbed in blood oranges for the avocados, or added a bottle of locally made kombucha to my order. I love that not only do they have all this awesome produce, but that I can get some of my favorite local products as well (my new favorite coffee and the best locally made chocolate bar). Each week, they drop off my box of produce on the porch and I get to forgo running to the store during my lunch break, win! Using the service has also made it super easy to meal plan for the week, since I can see online what I’m going to get in next week’s box, I will plan around the produce and add in a few grocery items to supplement and round out the meal plan for the week.
