Fresh Organic Produce Straight to Your Door– Enter the Giveaway!

After recent holidays like ‘Eid ul Adha and Thanksgiving, everyone is tired- tired of shopping, cooking, and maybe even tired of eating! It is, however, a great time to get healthy and commit to eating more fresh produce to detoxify the body and rejuvenate health.

You might be thinking that with the change of season (to cold, gloomy and blustery winter) your days of getting fresh organic produce were over, at least until the spring. Or, maybe you’re just too busy to get to the indoor farmers markets on Saturdays or even fight the long lines at your favorite grocery store over the weekend.

The answer to these shopping woes, in my opinion, just might lie in the middle between the two: *home delivery of fresh, organic produce that’s sourced locally when possible, and always looks great when it comes to you in their cheery square boxes. (*home delivery is currently for Chicagoland customers)

 

Door to Door Organics offers a few great tips for surviving wintertime in a happy and healthy way:

1. Local may not be available in the winter, but you can still eat organically. Visit the Door to Door Organics ”Learn” page for more information on why eating organic is important to your health.

2. People tend to eat fewer fresh fruits and veggies in wintertime – a weekly, or biweekly, delivery of Door to Door Organics produce keeps your “Good Food” intake consistent.

3. By committing to regular deliveries of the freshest organic fruits and veggies, you’ll find you can’t help but incorporate more healthful eating into your life- what a great way to start the new year and recover from all that holiday eating!

  1. I usually look for fresh, locally grown organic produce. My family needs quality produce at a reasonable price. A delivery service for organic produce would give me more time to be with my family and work. This service would be a life saver

  2. I look for quality in my organic produce. As a stay-at-home mom of three, it is very difficult to take the whole family out to the farmer’s market; there just isn’t room for a double-stroller. My husband goes, but I usually don’t think of what I need until I actually see it so he doesn’t pick it up.

  3. I like to partake of veggies that really need to be organic. Things with thick peels that are discarded like avocados don’t really need to be organic as the skin is a barrier and is discarded. Having it delivered is awesome cos that is less time in the store with an unpredictable toddler and I don’t have to worry the bagger will get it banged up or it get banged up in the car cos I loaded it in a hurry due to that toddler. Knowing what will arrive will help me to plan meals better and to look for new recipes calling for whatever comes so it gets consumed and not wasted. If I win this great prize I will request it donated to a Chicago family since I don’t live in Chicago.

  4. I do not live in Chicago, but this is an interesting service and I enjoyed reading more about it. Presently due to the expense, I only tend to purchase organic foods whenever it is something where the vegetable is not going to be peeled or the skin is very thin, or I have grown it in my own garden. Herbs, tomatoes things like that. I look for fairly healthy color and ripeness.

  5. Now you are talking, I would love to win and donate to a family in need. What I love about Organic is for it to be 100% organic. As for delivery to my door, I love the convenience, in case I am unable to go shopping, then I can still have healthy produce as much as I can.

  6. i think the biggest thing with organic produce for me is cost. i would usually go to a local farmers market because of the relatively cheaper prize than the stores and also because there is some option to bargain. it would be really cool to have the produce delivered right at my doro step, but again the cost of it would be a big factor for me, but it would definitely save time to shop around for it, especially for a large family.
