Eating Organic

One of the main goals I have in life is to be fit and healthy. As part of that I have decided that, as a family, we will eat more Organic produce. You may remember I was going to grow my own veggies, but that was a dismal failure (although I haven't given up on the whole idea yet!)

I was excited to find out that The Food Group would deliver Organic food right to my doorstep! We have purchased their Organic fruit and vegetable box for the last three weeks and I must say I am very happy with both the cost and the quality of produce in the box:

What I like most about the fruit and veggie box is that you really don't know what you're going to get (even though you do have the option to exclude certain items when you place your order). I have found that has forced me to be more inventive in my cooking, so that none of the produce is wasted.

The thing that surprised me most about the produce is that it lasts no where near as long as produce bought from the supermarket. I knew it wouldn't have as long a shelf life, but I was surprised at how little shelf life it has. Luckily we eat a lot of vegetables so it hasn't really been a problem.

While there are numerous benefits of eating organically, one of the main drivers for us has been Little Snicker starting on solids. I can't believe he is almost 6 months old! We are going to try and feed him organically for as long as possible to give him the best possible start to life.

As you can see, he really enjoys the Organic produce as well!
