Healthy Food Delivered To My Door

23 Sep

I was recently given the opportunity to try out a food delivery service called Green Bean Delivery.   I had actually heard of Green Bean and had been curious about this service of getting fresh produce (organic and local when possible) delivered to my door step.  Fresh fruits and veggies make up the bulk of weekly grocery trip and therefor grocery expense.

I have mentioned before that our typical weekly grocery budget is around $130.  This includes toiletries and household items, and cleaning supplies.  The food bin I tried out was the small fruit and vegetable bin that runs $35 a week.  To feed my crew for the week, this bin had enough fruit, but not enough veggies.  I had to purchase a few additional items to round out my week.  I calculated the cost of the small bin plus my groceries this week was $131.  So the cost of the bin fell right within our budget and provided us a combination of local and organic produce.

It was really fun to get the bin and then formulate my meal plan for the week based around the food that was delivered.  We got apples, raspberries, grapes, and a cantaloupe for our fruit items.  The veggies were red potatoes, baby spinach, tomatoes, spaghetti squash, and broccoli.

 As you can see, Tink was super excited to dig in to help me unpack and eat all the grapes.

I pulled out all the veggies and started to brainstorm for our dinner this week.  I came up with my version of chicken tetrazzini with steamed broccoli and roasted red potatoes as a side.

This meal was a hit!  It welcomed the inspiration brought on by the Green Bean Bin!  If you want to try out the Green Bean Delivery service in your area, use the promo code 15FC2FCml for $15 off of your first delivery.  This promo code expires one week from today, and is only good for new members and reactivation accounts only.

Disclaimer:  I was provided the small Fruit and Vegetable bin for free in order to review this service.  However, all views expressed in this post are my own.

    I’ve been using Green Bean for years (literally since their first year in existence in Louisville) and love them! Did you know you can customize your bin? A lot of times they are heavy on the fruits so I usually customize mine to get mostly veggies (and apples!) Glad you like it :)

    LOVED this service when I had it. Did you know you can customize your bins? You can pick what fruits and veggies you want based on whats available, that way you can plan your delivery around your meal instead of the other way around!
