Imperfect Produce!

On the day that Kim and I went strawberry picking she told me about imperfect produce. I had been seeing advertisements for it as well and was curious. She sent me an email that gave me $10 off my first order so I thought I'd give it a try. 

What I love about the whole process is....number one I can skip a week anytime I want and number two I get to customize my box with what I want and how much I want. 

This was my first box! It was around $20, but with my $10 off it was half that. Seriously there is nothing wrong with any of these fruits or veggies. The main thing I've noticed is the produce is smaller than what the grocery store wants. They want people to buy bigger items not smaller since it's priced by weight. 

When you are customizing your box some of the produce....say avocados tells you the count you will receive. For this box I order 2 - 3 count of avocado, but for others it's by weight. So I ordered 2 pounds of nectarines. It doesn't matter that they are smaller though because I'm still going to get 2 pounds of fruit.  

My second box...

All of this for $20!!! 

I love seeing my fruit basket full! 

It was so fun that they had cilantro and I just so happened to need it for a recipe and I didn't even have to run to the store. That can be the tricky part of ordering though because you are subject to what's available. You can't count on them having the same thing every time. 

This is my most recent box....$22!!!

Peaches, nectarines, Brussels sprouts  zucchini, avocados and apricots. Yum yum!  

If you're curious about trying out Imperfect Produce let me know and I'll get you the same $10 off deal that I got.
