As mentioned in my health blog I am trying to do better about eating better/healthish in doing so based on the recommendation of my friend Jessica Irvin (her blog is linked here ) I started using Imperfect Produce! Every week I enjoy a lot of fruits and veggies its currently making up majority of my diet. I was going to the grocery store once a week to get a new supply of produce for the week. When I looked into Imperfect Produce it appeared to be the perfect solution to getting my produce. First off they deliver so that cures my laziness issue and appeases the side of me that absolutely hates shopping. Second, its customizable so I can pick out what types of produce I want and how much. Lastly and most importantly it helps fight the food waste problem that is happening in America.
“Food is a terrible thing to waste. It’s bad for people and the planet, and yet 40% of all the food produced in the US goes uneaten . From farms to fridges, waste is a massive problem that has infiltrated every level of our food system. It’s a problem we can all play a role in solving.”
Imperfect Produce fights this with using the rejected produce from the grocery stores. Now i know what you are thinking you are just getting shipped bad produce but you really aren’t. Most of the time produce is rejected for aesthetics not quality. So if i am getting a asymmetrical red pepper I am cool with it.
I really hope you check them out I am on my third box and couldn’t be happier.
