Look who was in the news this week: our beekeeping hero Brandon Pollard of Texas Honeybee Guild was featured in the Dallas Observer as part of their “100 Favorite Dallasites of 2013.” Brandon and his wife, Susan, are the bees knees, and their honey is bee-yond delish. Kudos, Brandon, for the well-deserved recognition!
There’s a diet out there for everyone. Whether you’re eating Paleo, Vegan, Gluten-free, or some other way in the New Year, lettuce support you by bringing healthy groceries to your door! From the Local Box to special-diet friendly Meal Kits, Greenling can help you to eat clean in 2014.
Get on a Delivery Schedule
Eating healthy gets much, much easier when good foods come to you automatically. Setting up a weekly delivery is hands-down the easiest way to stick to your goals this year. Plus, think of all the time, calories, and money you’ll save by avoiding the junk food aisles at the grocery store!
Ignore Temptation with Easy Online Shopping
Greenling’s new shopping page makes it super easy to load up on healthy choices. You can browse by categories like produce or healthy snacks to find healthy, fresh foods without all the junk. The local, organic, vegan and gluten-free filters at the top of every shop page make it easier than ever to find the foods that are just right for you. Choose the filter you’d like, and only those types of products will be visible!
Keep a Meal Kit (or 5) in the Fridge
Defeat the drive-through temptation with meal kits! These convenient kits use all local and organic ingredients, and everything arrives ready to cook. If one of your resolutions is to cook at home more frequently, Meal Kits are a great way to stick with it when times are busy.
