Recently Green BEAN Delivery asked if I would like to try out their service. They delivery fresh organic fruits and vegetables right to your doorstep. I love this concept! Read on to see my thoughts and get a coupon for your own delivery!
When you sign up it is for a specific plan, but you can adjust it as needed weekly (or however often you like) and even make changes to the list of items that will be included in your delivery. Green BEAN Delivery will send you emails reminding you of your upcoming shipment and give you the link to go in and make any changes that you want the weekend before. Then on your delivery day you will receive a box just like this:
On my delivery day we actually had a winter storm move in and they still delivered that morning. I was expecting to maybe get a call or email saying that they would have to reschedule, but nope, there was my delivery right outside my door!
This delivery was their small bin which (in my area) is $35. Remember this is ORGANIC food also – so the price was actually about the same or a bit less than what I would pay at my regular grocery store for organic produce. So many foods we eat the entire thing, including that outer skin, this is why I have been trying to buy more and more organic for myself and my family.
In my Green BEAN Delivery bin I received:
- 10 oz Crimini mushrooms
These were delicious! I used them to make my Beefy Barley and Mushroom Soup
- 32oz Yukon Gold Potatoes
These are the best for making mashed potatoes by the way!
- Broccoli bunch
This stayed fresh in my fridge much longer than what I buy at my regular grocery store – I was impressed! I used this to make a Sausage, Broccoli, and Mushroom Omelet Roll recipe from Feels Like Home Blog.
- 2 large yellow sweet onions
- 4 Murcott Honey Mandarin – Stem and Leaf
OMG these are sooooo delicious and I love that they are small! Perfect snack!
- 2 Meyer lemons
- 1 Avocado
I love avocados! Just on their own, in salads, on burgers, or mashed into my easy homemade guacamole
- 2 Gala apples
My son called dibs on these to take for a snack at work with him
- 1 lb strawberries
- 1 head of garlic
This was my least favorite item, not because of taste, but because I was already sprouting a bit.
- 5 Roma tomatoes
A nice bunch of bright red ones!
- 1 bunch Romaine lettuce
I am happy that I can have salad once again since my surgery – I love an ice cold crisp salad! This was very fresh also!
Currently Green BEAN Delivery has service in Missouri, Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky. Hopefully they will expand to other areas as well. This is a great way to get your family eating more vegetables and fruits. Try out some unique items in your delivery, get the kids interested in new things, and cook together as a family. I love that they source the produce locally so much, it’s not everything all the time, but that is a big focus for them.
I will be subscribing to this service for my own family. I am just waiting a bit as I get a handle on re-thinking my cooking post weight loss surgery. Our quantities and many of my recipes are changing right now and I do not want any of these yummy items to go to waste! I really do recommend you giving Green Bean Delivery a try.
