Let’s talk CSA. Are you a member? All I know is that every other Tuesday, when I wake up in the morning, it’s like Christmas. There’s a box on my doorstep filled with a plethora of mystery goodies and I’m giddy like a 15-year-old girl at a Justin Bieber concert. Actually not gonna lie, I would be giddy at a Biebs concert. WHO WOULDN’T? So it’s Tuesday morning and here’s what I’m thinking: What will be inside the box this time? What recipes will I make with it? How many items can I properly identify? Kyle, will you go outside and get the box this time because my feet are cold?
It’s all so exciting! I love my CSA program because they deliver it to me in the middle of the night. I don’t have to go to anywhere to pick it up. Some may call that lazy, others may call it genius. Either way, I’m getting a box o’ veggies & fruit every other week and it’s changing my life. Here’s why:
+ The veggies/fruit are all organic and from local farms.
+ The produce is always seasonal. Right now, I’m getting lots of squash, apples, and greens.
+ It’s fairly cheap. I pay $25 for a small mixed box (that includes delivery) and it comes every other week. I easily spend that much on produce every week so ehhh not too bad?
+ It’s a LOT of stuff for 2 people. We pretty much gorge ourselves (Kyle and I) on healthy foods for the week that we get it. We’re talking veggie-centric meals every night and then a fruit cobbler for dessert. On the weeks we don’t get the box, I’m not going to tell you the crap we eat but it may rhyme with braft lacaroni & schmeese.
+ It really pushes me to try new foods and new recipes, which I love! For example, there is an acorn squash in the box I got this week and I can’t wait to make this with it.
My CSA program is called Farm Fresh to You and I have nothing but praise for them. If you’re in the LA or Southern California area, I would highly recommend. DO IT.
BRB, going to eat 5 pears.
