In case you couldn’t gather from yesterday’s post, San Antonio was not the healthiest of trips. I always go with the best of intentions and end up failing miserably and overdoing it while I am away for work. While I know it’s not the end of the world, it’s frustrating that I can’t seem to master eating healthy on a business trip…
One good move I did make was on Saturday I decided to order a box of fruits and vegetables from Washington’s Green Grocer. I ordered a box from them one other time which you can read about here, and while I was overall satisfied, I wasn’t impressed enough to order it again since then, which was about a year ago.
When I placed the order from my iPhone, I think I misread something because I was under the impression it was coming Monday. My thought was that I wouldn’t have time to grocery shop and when I got home from my trip, I’d have a box of fruits and veggies waiting. After I placed the order though, I totally forgot that I did and there was no box waiting at home on Monday.
Yesterday, however, was a different story.
When I saw the box sitting up against my door like that when I got home, I had NO idea what it was until I took a closer look and realized it was a box full of fresh fruits and veggies!
This time, I was REALLY impressed with the value of the box. Everything was in excellent condition, and it cost $31.25 with delivery including all fees. I ordered a small mixed box, which includes some organic, some transitional, and some conventional produce.
Check out how much they packed into the box!
First up, the fruit.
- 2 grapefruit
- 3 naval oranges
- 3 red pears
- 6 fuji apples
*Note: This time I requested NO bananas, because last time they were a little bruised up and I am super particular about my bananas for some reason, so I’m not sure what they gave in place, but there was definitely a ton in the box!
Next up, the veggies:
- 2 portabella mushrooms (already gone)
- 1 bunch of carrots w/the greens
- 1 head cauliflower
- 2 avocado
- 2 cucumber
- green beans (in the bag)
- green leaf lettuce
Quite a lot of produce for just $31.25 including delivery! While I don’t think this will be a weekly thing by any means, I do think I’m going to try to make use of it during particularly busy weeks. I also love the idea of having it delivered when I’m just getting back to a trip and won’t have time to head to the store so that I have no excuses to get back on track immediately.
