Eat Your Organic Veggies

We planned on eating a wide varieties of veggies, really we did. It just seemed like, with kids, our fruit and veggie shopping never really made it past the B's on the food alphabet chart - we were stuck at Apples, Bananas, Beans and Broccoli - maybe some Carrots. We never got anywhere close to Squash or Zucchini. That was until we signed up with Urban Organic, a Brooklyn-based business that will deliver a box of organic veggies to your door once a week. You don't get to choose what you get. They send the same box to everyone, although you can make up to three alterations a week and you can tell them a couple things you never want to get. That might sound like a nightmare to some people - having beets arriving unbidden, but it forces us to incorporate a wider range of fruits and veggies than we used too and inspired a wonderful roasted beet and goat cheese salad with pistachio nuts this week. Boxes come in several sizes starting at $25. This week a box contains: lettuce, red chard, carrots, yams, cabbage, mushrooms, green onions, avocado, mango, apples, oranges, tangerines, kiwi, and, yes, bananas.
