Each week it is a bit like Christmas when our organic fruit and vegetable box arrives on the backdoor step. You never know what is going to be in the box, it all depends on what is in season and what the growers have sent to the market.
We choose 80% vegetables and 20% fruit.
and ask for extra kumera and avocados.
I took the time to take photos for you all to see what we get for $80.50
(this includes delivery to our door)
We eat more vegetables than fruit so get a smaller amount of fruit which is more than enough for us. I send 3 pieces of fruit a day in the boys lunch box.
This week we got pears, limes, kiwifruit, bananas, apples, nashi pears, avocado, and feijoas.
rhubarb (yes it is a vegetable but we tend to stew it for breakfast) cauliflower, bok choy, courgettes and eggplants.
We eat to the seasons and if I had to put a label on what kind of diet we follow it would be Western A Price principals. I cook all our food from scratch, The main meal I cook for 6 adults and the two extra portions I send to work for the boys lunches.
We find it is good value for money and love the fact that it is organic, you can taste the difference! My vegetable garden supplements the boxes - but not much is producing in my garden at the moment a few chillies, lemons, feijoas and rhubarb.
