Have you ever found yourself saying “I have to get to the grocery store” but simultaneously avoiding the grocery store? Maybe you spend a day or two or three dining out. You still make good food choices but know in your heart that you might be overeating and that you are for sure overspending. As much as I love to prepare food and eat it I truly dislike food shopping.
Without fail, I stock up, eat and go on about life until my fridge and cabinets start to look like one of those abandoned homes in an apocalyptic type TV show. Well friends, I have found the perfect solution to those grocery store blues; Grocery store pick up and produce shipments!
I recently stumbled upon Misfits Market, a company that ships organic produce right to your home. Their mission is to end food waste by purchasing and selling the imperfect produce that most grocery stores will not accept. Imperfect produce may vary in color, size, shape or even have some bumps and bruises but trust me still tastes amazing.
I get a mischief box delivered to my home every other week with a variety of fruits and vegetables. I then plan my meals around the produce I’ve received. This is where the grocery pick up comes in! I am able to load all my groceries into my virtual cart, “checkout” and pick up my groceries at my convenience. This has allowed me to save money while also prioritizing my needs and my dislike for food shopping. I find that I am eating more vegetables and because I prepare my meals myself I know exactly what goes into them and what is going into my body. We are all searching for what works for us and this method has for surely kept me on track with my goals to eat healthy and whole foods. A win-win if you ask me.
Whether you are avoiding the grocery store like myself or have a hectic schedule I wholly recommend giving it a try!
