Green Yums Review (and discount code!)

I am always looking for easy ways to bring organic produce into my kitchen.  I am part of a local CSA (which stands for Community Supported agriculture) and I shop at Whole Foods, but I often wish I could just have my favorite things delivered right to my door.  Enter GreenYums … a good friend recently told me about this company.  They are an organic fruit and vegetable delivery service that sends delicious (mostly) local produce right to your doorstep.  I contacted the company to get some more information and they graciously offered to send me a box to sample.

 

A few days later a box of beautifully packaged organic produce arrived at my doorstep.  Everything was wrapped up in an insulated bag with ice packs to keep my goodies fresh.  I couldn’t wait to dig in.

The box was filled with a variety of delicious looking treats.  I had kale, peppers, corn, mangos, pears, plums, nectarines, lemons, eggplant, melon and bananas.  I was in heaven before I even tasted anything!

I cut up a large plate of fruit for the kids as an after camp snack.  It was beautiful, delicious and devoured instantaneously!

I used the kale and lemons to whip up a batch of my favorite kale salad.

I tossed the corn into my sauteed corn and tomato salad.

Overall I really loved the quality of the produce and you really can’t beat the convenience of having exactly what you want delivered to your doorstep.  I would definitely use them again.

 

GreenYums.com is based in the Princeton, NJ area. During the season they look to source their produce from organic farms in and around Princeton as well as Lawrenceville, Pennington and other towns in South Jersey. However, since it is not possible to procure all the fruit and veggies from around here they also rely on wholesalers who supply quality USDA produce throughout the season. They currently deliver to Boston, MA, Hartford, CT, Philadelphia, PA, Washington D.C., all boroughs of NYC and all of New Jersey!

 

Check them out today…they are offering all Simply Beautiful Mom fans a 15% discount off of their first order…just use the code “SIMPLYSAVE” at checkout.  If you like the service (which I know you will!) just get 5 families in your neighborhood to agree on a weekly delivery day and they continue to offer a 5% discount on all future orders. What are you waiting for??
