After Cora died, my own health spun out of control. I didn’t have the mental capacity to cook for several months. I remember my sister-in-law coming to visit a few weeks after Cora died, and trying to cook mashed potatoes, and I couldn’t figure out what to do after I skinned the potatoes. Parts of my brain just shut down.
We lived off fast food for many months. Needless to say, my weight increased and my health decreased.
I think that many of the fertility issues I have will clear up with some weight loss, so I’ve been really working on it for the past few weeks.
When I had the opportunity to receive a free delivery of fresh fruits and veggies from Grean B.E.A.N. Delivery, I jumped on it!
One major hurdle right now is getting healthy foods in the house at all times. I work from home, and we’re a one vehicle family, which happens to my husband’s work truck. It’s hard to coordinate our schedules for me to shop. Usually by the time I’m able to grab the truck, I’m starving and make worse choices, or my husband calls me at the end of a long day willing to go to the grocery store and I freeze and think of easy convenience foods for him to pick up.
Fresh foods delivered to our door step make making better choices so much easier.
My delivery came last Thursday, and was waiting patiently on my door step for me when we came home.
As you can see, it came in a nice heavy duty bin, that was also insulated and had ice packs inside so everything was fresh (this time of year that doesn’t matter so much, but in the summer, the chilled veggies won’t wilt).
Everything was organic, and so fresh. I know I keep using the word fresh over and over, but that’s the best way to describe the taste of everything. It was like I’d picked everything from my garden. It all blew away the veggies and fruit at my local grocery store this time of year.
The organic blueberries? Best blueberries I’ve ever had. I wasn’t that excited about them, so used to those mooshy over ripe little purple things the grocery store calls blueberries. These were so tasty!
The delivery definitely helped me cook healthier and eat better. The first two nights, I chopped up an amazing salad. I think one night the salad was all I had for dinner, and I was completely satisfied. I left it out on the counter (covered of course) and just got little bowls of salad when I was hungry again. So awesome.
Sadly, Green B.E.A.N Delivery doesn’t deliver everywhere in the states, but if you live in Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio or Missouri, you’re in luck!
I also like that the produce changes based on what’s fresh. Grean B.E.A.N. even has a blog with recipes that use the produce in the bins. I think that’s a fun way to try new produce. You can add or change items based on your needs. You can even add local dairy, milk and tons of other products.
My bin had organic blueberries, organic cauliflower, organic broccoli (I’ll drop the word organic, you get the idea it was all organic), 3 Asian pears, 4 Gala apples, red lettuce, celery, 2 mangoes, and cherry tomatoes.
We have three people living in our house, so not enough produce to last a few days, but we still have some of the items left over, and they’re in great shape five days later.
I was given the bin in exchange for this post, but am so glad I was introduced. I’m officially a fan, and going to keep and pay for the service, so I’m sure you’ll hear me gush about Green B.E.A.N. in the future.
It’s definitely an important tool in my “gettin’ healthy to get knocked up” journey. I’ll be writing more about that journey here, and on my personal blog, KristineBrite.com because blogging is such a great way for me to stay on track, get feedback and encouragement and share with others what’s working.
Hopefully, I’ll soon have a little BEAN of my own growing in my tummy.
