Ugly produce! At your door!
By Esteal Streaker / March 13, 2019
What’s one of the first things you think when you hear the words “organic produce”?
Our indoor chemical load can be off the charts, if we are using conventional cleaning products. And many consider Whole Foods to be the most expensive way to buy produce and grass-fed meats.
OK, we all know that we need to minimize the amount of toxic chemicals we take into our bodies. And if you live in an urban area, that can be a real challenge. Seems to me like toxins are everywhere.
Well, I have been thrilled with a company called Imperfect Produce. Did you know that farmers often either
throw away ugly fruits and veggies, or sell them to feed companies for pennies?
I have received three boxes so far of so-called ugly, unloved produce. Honestly, I think I am not meant to be a food photographer, because I don’t mind some odd shapes in fruit and veggies. Sometimes, it’s just fun!
The produce in my boxes have been delicious, and not really very ugly. So I’m thrilled to get anywhere from 7 to 9 pounds of produce delivered to my home for under $17. And you can customize what you want! Man, what more could you ask for?
