GreenBeanThere comes a point in life for most of us where we’re grown up enough to realize that we like vegetables and for the most part will eat and can enjoy any of them.  The problem, we rarely go out of our comfort zones.  We get in a sort of veggie eating rut.  We head down the produce isle at the store with a list in hand and generally buy the same things week after week. 

The reason?  We know exactly what we’re going to cook with them, which recipes call for them and it’s easy.

Then I met the lovely folks at Green Bean Delivery, they deliver organic produce direct to your door , and guess what?  It’s easy too, in fact it’s actually easier than going to the store.

At first you may get your delivery and think-”man, what am I going to do with all these vegetables I don’t normally buy?”  Then you realize you’re kind of excited to be forced to step out of that monotonous meal planning rut you were in.

Since my Green Bean deliveries have started I have really been experimenting with fun new recipes and they’ve all been delicious.  The best part, I may not have ever tried them if I hadn’t received the variety of produce found in my Green Bean bin.

VeggiesTwo of my favorite new recipes using my Green Bean produce I have already shared on my blog.  Easy Pan Roasted Veggies makes the perfect side to any dish.  Think about it like veggie kabobs but without the sticks!  Simply slice up all those miscellaneous veggies you aren’t quite sure what to do with, toss them with olive oil and seasoning and then bake!  Easy-peasy, you’ll definitely end up making this dish a staple in your household.

MushroomTwice Baked Portobello Mushrooms became another filling favorite.  Sliced and diced kale, tomatoes, spinach, feta and other yummies topped a portobello mushroom cap and baked.  This recipe is satisfying, perfect for a family dinner and fancy enough for a special party.

So what else can you expect from Green Bean?  Well they’re dependable.  They maintain a great selection of fresh, often local, and always organic fruits and veggies.  The service is really affordable.  Often you hear “delivery” and immediately your mind sees extra dollar signs.  This really isn’t the case with Green Bean Delivery.  Because they deliver to several places in your area they’re able to keep costs down so you’re getting a great value and better selection than you’d find in your local grocer.

Overall, I am pleasantly surprised at just how much I like getting my bin delivered each week and I look forward to creating fun new meals and treats for my family with the green goodness they provide. I’m thankful to have such a great service in my area.

People seem to think that natural, healthy, and sustainable food is either A. Too Expensive or B. Impossible to find. I’m glad to say that the prevalence of places like Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s has started to change that thinking! Keep it up, folks!

This sounds like a very interesting approach to forcing yourself to get out of your comfort zone regarding food. I agree with James’ comment here, good healthy food does not necessarily have to be expensive nor impossible to come across. This sounds like a great company though, I will definitely check out whether they supply to my area.
My way to get out of my “veggie comfort zone” was to look for new recipes and hope to stumble upon an ingredient I don’t often use, but this seems like a good idea, too.
Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for the comment back, sir! My wife is vegetarian, so she’s slowly getting me to see that veggie-friendly recipes aren’t the end of the world. However, I will never be able to resist a good pork chop or filet….

We do a CSA (community supported agriculture) and have found that we love trying new recipes. It is also great to know that we are supporting a local farm.
