No Time to Grocery Shop?
Feeling pressed for time to shop for healthy food in the busy summer months (or all year around for that matter!)? Here's a way to get at least a few staple items, such as produce (which tends to run out quickly) in your kitchen without spending time at the store: online shopping!
If you're a stickler for cost or for quality, fret not! There's a variety of choices to suit your tastes and needs. Check out a few of my favorites:
- Produce Delivery
- Full Circle http://www.fullcircle.com/
- Freggies http://www.freggies.com/coop/
- Grocery & Home Goods Delivery
- Amazon http://www.amazon.com/grocery-breakfast-foods-snacks-organic/b?ie=UTF8&node=16310101
- Safeway http://www.safeway.com/ShopStores/Home-Grocery-Delivery.page
- CSA (community supported agriculture programs)
Choose one near you!

Another way to streamline the shopping process and support local farmers in the meantime is by picking up your produce box from a farmer in your area.

Remember online shopping doesn't have to be all of the grocery shopping you do for a week (but it can be!) It can help your family stay stocked up on produce Thursday- Saturday (ever run out of fresh veggies by then?) and save you time spent wandering the store aisles (get outside and play this summer!) Try it as a part of your routine this month and see if it makes life a little easier food-wise!
