As a nutritionist, I am always on the lookout for new easy, healthy AND delicious recipes. Pinterest is great for this but it always seems to lead me to on-line shopping, and I really just can’t afford to keep up this “1 new recipe – 2 new tops” lifestyle. This month it occurred to me, why don’t I ask my favorite healthy and delicious people for help?
However, I can’t expect you to do this solely out of the kindness of your heart. Luckily the delightful people over at organicgirl have offered to reward one of you generous people with free produce!
So who is this organicgirl? Well, truth be told, I had no idea either. But once I put them on my radar, I realized they were everywhere. I snapped this picture at Von’s last week:
Not the best picture, I know! Here’s one of their pictures that was probably not taken on a phone.
Basically, organicgirl makes high quality organic produce with an extra emphasis on minimizing the environmental impact during their growing, packaging and delivery process.
From a food quality standpoint, I absolutely love their greens! They are fresh and delicious and you can honestly taste the extra care and effort they put into their product. I also applaud their environmental effort. All of their packaging is made from 100% recycled material and they make sure that your spinach hasn’t seen more of the country than you have. However, I think what I really like the most is they are making a high quality product available to everyone – not only those who can get to the farmer’s market or can afford the price tag that usually comes with organic. This way a busy person can run to their local store and buy something that they know will be healthy for their family and is making an effort to protect the world around them. We all know how I love small steps!
So, if you want to try it yourself you can find a local store on the organicgirl website. If you want to try it for FREE you can share a recipe in the comment section below! Here’s a quick rundown of the rules:
- Each post of a recipe here in the comments section of this blog or on my Facebook account will count as an entry.
- The postings must occur between now and May 22nd at midnight (unless you just want to keep sharing!).
- Each entry will be assigned a number and that number will be chosen at random.
- You win and then get to relish in your free greens…get it, relish?! (i’m sorry, please don’t hold that against me.)
