Healthy Eating Tip: Have Your Produce Delivered

Sometimes it's hard to eat enough fruits and vegetables each day. Many of us would eat more produce if we had it right in front of us and this could not be more true for me. Over here at Sugar HQ, we have fruit delivered into the office and I know I eat more yummy fresh fruits (not to mention more of a variety) because of it. Inspired by this, I have decided to have produce delivered to my home as well. In my searches I stumbled on a fabulous list that Women's Health has already created of produce delivery businesses nationwide. Check it out. After all, having your produce delivered might help you stock up on healthy foods instead of the unhealthy ones.

We have lots of delivery options in Boston but I still like being able to see what I'm buying when it comes to produce

I should consider this! I've really been trying to incorporate more produce, because when I have it around I definitely eat it, but when I go to the supermarket it's just not something I'm used to picking up (I know, it's a bad habit). Hopefully getting it delivered for a few months would make me get used to having it around, and then I'd think to pick it up when I'm at the store.

i used to think that something like Fresh Direct would be good since that would mean that i didn't have to go and pick stuff out on my own, but it's an added expense that i don't feel is overly necessary for me right now. i think that i'm lucky enough to have stores on my walk home from work that i can stop in to get produce - so i'm usually getting more than my 'suggested serving size'.... i can understand the merit of delivery though if you're not able to stop off somewhere easily - and anything that gets people to be more healthy about their diet is ok in my book.

I prefer to just buy mine at the grocery someone else said, I like to be able to pick through the fruit and vegetables and get the best ones!

I get a box delivered weekly from Farm Fresh to You (in the Capay Valley) and it is wonderful! All fresh, seasonal, organic produce. You just have to check the website to see what you're getting each week and plan your recipes around the box. Which inevitably leads to eating seasonally, which always is a good thing! They have an option for a small box that's only 20 bucks per week and is more than enough for 2 of us.

It actually depends on what neighborhood you live in. Not all grocery stores or neighborhood store have fresh veggies and fruits; and traveling out of your way more than an hour for a head a lettuce - some people do not have the option. This service will only help those who can afford it.

If you live in the NYC area, FreshDirect is a great online grocery store. Lots of organic produce to choose from.

I did this for a while through an organic delivery service. If you're really busy it's nice but otherwise you're better off going yourself. Sometimes you just want a certain size of a piece of produce and you get to pick the freshest ones!

There's a delivery company that services my area. How fun though, I mean, you get this fresh amazing produce delivered to your door? I know it may not be budget savvy but it sure makes you put more fresh produce in your diet. I like this. I'll try them out, the company that does my area delivers either weekly or every other week, and they have 2 different sized boxes. I think this is a neat concept, and I know my grocery store oftentimes has lackluster produce so this would be a welcome change.

It's not difficult to buy that stuff at the supermarket. Yet, when you have a crazy job and you get out of work late, it's nice to know that you can go straight home and your food will be delivered to you, instead of having to traipse to the grocery store. I live in Chicago, and there are lots of delivery services like this here (It's a lot easier being in a big city for services like these.). It's not that expensive either (around $5 delivery fee), and the produce is locally grown and/or organic.

Considering that there are NO services that deliver produce in Wisconsin, sounds like I'll be just buying mine at the store like normal. Seriously, how difficult is it to buy a bag of apples or lettuce and tomatoes at the store? I'm guessing the delivery service isn't cheap AND you don't get to hand-select the fruit/vegetable you want.
