Organics Live: Contest

orgbox

Moms, let’s talk for a moment about grocery shopping, trying to eat clean, trying to figure out what ‘eat clean’ actually means, and of course, the elusive challenge of trying to get your children to eat more vegetables. The struggle is real. Let me introduce you to Organics Live London delivery box.

Organics Live London delivers certified 100% organic, sustainably produced, and locally focused food and grocery items to homes and businesses for up to 20% less than the cost of retail with FREE delivery. Not only are they driven to provide your family with the cleanest organic produce, but they do it with a large focus on the environment as well by running a carbon neutral operation and sourcing from local farms for seasonal produce whenever possible. Clean food, clean eating. 

HOW IT WORKS

With only a few clicks, you will have a huge chunk of your weekly groceries delivered to your door on Tuesday evening.

Their website is very easy to navigate (if you’ve managed to read this post, you’ll be fine!). Sign up, enter your delivery and payment information. Choose from either a small box (1-2 people), regular box (2-4 people), large box (4-6 people) or fruit box. Done. Your boxes will magically begin arriving.

CUSTOMIZE

I know, I know, you have picky eaters. We all do!

Instead of receiving things in the box that you just know that no one will touch, you have until 10pm Sunday night to customize your box by removing and adding from the set lists. You can even list up to five items that will just never appear in your boxes.

If you find it’s too much produce to get through in a week, you can get your boxes every two weeks.

If you are going away, put the boxes on hold and they won’t show up.

Be brave, be bold. Challenge your family (and yourself!) to get one new thing each week and find a way to eat it. I discovered this week that roasting rainbow Swiss chard with feta cheese is the stuff of food dreams, whereas putting it in my morning smoothie is not something I plan on repeating. Experimenting is awesome for you, awesome for kids.

PAYMENT

There are multiple payment options available: VISA, MasterCard, VISA debit, and eTransfer.
