We all know that we’re supposed to eat our fruits and veggies. But apparently, there are only an elite few who actually hit the nutritional mark. Less than 9 percent of Americans are eating the recommended two to three cups of veggies per day, according to a recent U.S. Center for Disease Control report. And it’s not without consequence; more of us are overweight than ever before. Considering numerous studies have found an inverse relationship between fruits and vegetable intake and obesity, it’s really no surprise. Thankfully, Organicgirl is here to save the day—and your gut!
The California-based company got their start as a supermarket greens purveyor and soon expanded to create a line of “clean” salad dressing. (Eat This, Not That! editors love them!) And most recently, Organicgirl launched a line of beverages that are primarily made from fresh greens and vegetables. Sure, all these products can be a bit pricey when purchased à la carte, but that’s what makes their new delivery service so genius! Yes, that’s right; Organicgirl is now delivering customizable bundles of their salad greens (which range from classics like kale and spinach to trendy picks like pea shoots and mustard greens), dressings, and fresh pressed juices right to your front door.
A small “Lunch Bunch” bundle is just $34.99 and comes with two salad blends, two dressings, and two greens juices. (Considering one bottled juice can cost up to $10, that’s not a bad deal!) Pair the dressing and greens with some grilled chicken, cold quinoa, and some chopped veggies, and you’ve got lunch ready to roll for the entire week. Typically reach for a soda or coffee drink to get yourself over the 3 p.m. slump? Swap in an Organicgirl juice for a wholesome, more sustainable source of energy. If cooking for a big family complicates your healthy lifestyle, you can buy their family-sized packages, which include four salad blends, two dressings, and six green juices. In short, no matter what healthy-eating obstacles you may face, with just a click of your mouse, you can get your daily serving of greens and kick your weight loss progress into high gear.
