When I heard that Imperfect Produce was now available in our area, I was excited. Last year, I had tried Hungry Harvest and really enjoyed it, but then life got crazy and I decided to cancel. Life is still insane, but I’ve been eating a lot of plant-based meals lately, so it seemed like a good time to sign up for Imperfect Produce.
I love that they have an organic option and that you can customize your box. This is very helpful. You start with a “base” price depending on the size you select, and you can always add more to your box. The Small Organic box runs about $16-$18. For my custom box, I added two extra items which increased the price to $22.15. Here’s what I got:
Not too bad if you ask me, especially since I didn’t detect a lot of imperfections. Perhaps they sent me a better looking box my first time to wow me. Who knows! Two of the items were “conventional” (i.e. not organic), but that’s okay. I try to eat organic as much as possible, of course. I will be getting a small box of organic fruits and veggies every other week. Depends on how much I consume.
Tonight, I combined a zucchini, a carrot, half of the onion, and half of one of the tomatoes to serve with some potatoes I had made the other night. I am going to have a pear for breakfast.
I can’t wait to have the Spaghetti Squash this week! I usually just roast it with EVOO, salt, and pepper and simply have it like that. Do you have any favorite spaghetti squash recipes? Let me know!
