Send Me Gluten Free Subscription Box

Send Me Gluten FreeIt’s hard to find healthy food subscription boxes, and almost impossible to find any that taste good. Send Me Gluten Free is one company that is out to change that! When the box arrived I was greeted by a bright orange package which put me in a good mood. Sure, they could’ve sent it in a plain brown box, but they took the time to make this subscription special for each person.

When I opened the box I was surprised at the sheer number of items. With subscription boxes you will normally get 4-5 samples, but this box was filled with really unique and healthy food options. I found some familiar and loved names like Justin’s, but there were also some really unique snacks in the box such as chocolate rocks!

The next step was to try the food and see if it actually tasted good. I am pleased to say that every item in the box passed the taste test with flying colors. The food not only looks good, but it taste good too. For some shoppers finding foods that are gluten free is a real task. This company does all of the hard work for you, and in fact they take things a step further and send along coupons and relevant information about the products in the box so that you can continue to enjoy them even after you’ve finished off the food in your subscription.

One of the coolest parts about the Love With Food box is that they donate a meal to a hungry child each time you have a box delivered to you or a loved one. You can enjoy the food that comes in your box while knowing that you helped make a real difference. To date they have donated over 17,000 meals to children in need! That number grows every month and you get the opportunity to be a part of that.

Actually, it’s only $10 a month and you can pay in advance for months to get a discounted price. That’s a really affordable subscription that anyone could enjoy.

If you like something that comes in your box you have the opportunity to buy more of it on their website at discounted rates. Who doesn’t love a good deal on things that they enjoy to begin with? We sure do. When you order more of the things you enjoyed you also earn points which can be redeemed for free stuff! It’s a great thing to be a part of.

The natural ingredients in their teas really makes all the difference in the smells and flavors. There really is no comparison in a store bought bag of tea that has been mass manufactured to a hand packaged fresh bag of tea from Donna’s Bounty. The flavors in a single cup of their Donna's Bounty Herbs and Spicestea are robust and bursting with taste. One really cool thing about Donna’s Bounty is that they are a New York State Department of Agriculture inspected and licensed facility and they guarantee that their products will taste fresh, not many independent tea companies can brag about that!

Perhaps a fantastic cup of tea doesn’t interest you. If that is the case then you will be pleased to know that their mulling spices are also superb.

It’s Organic!

These days it seems like the only thing people aren’t growing at home, is money.  With the buzz around the U.S. about eating, growing, and processing ‘organic’ food, could it really be better for you? Maybe cheaper? Or simply does it taste a little better than normally processed food, and where do you buy it? A-lot of people ask themselves the same questions.

To start off, organic foods are grown and prepared completely and entirely different.  While traditional growing habits are involved with the use of numerous chemicals, organic growing techniques stray from that sense.  With the only added unnatural ingredient being elbow grease, many people look to organic foods as a safer alternative to typical dining choices. There is no use of herbicide, or chemical fertilizer,  in the organic growing process, and while antibiotics and growing hormones are widely used in original methods, grazing that is rotated and access to the outdoors are preventative measures to prevent disease in livestock; also the use of organic feed!

Organoleptic value is a system to show how organic food is experienced by the senses for example: taste, sight, smell , touch. Organic food tends to have a better shelf life, this probably due to the higher level of antioxidants, and a lower level of nitrates which make fruit and vegetables age quicker. Also studies have shown that the higher the crop yield, the lower amount of antioxidants in the crop. This is why most people, when put to a blind taste test, will choose organic fruits and veggies showing that they have a higher organoleptic value.

Now where can I buy organic foods and will they but a whole in my pocket?  As the nation grows more aware of organic foods, expect to see it in all types or grocery stores along with standalone stores that specialize in just organic products.  Although the dramatic differences in growing techniques, the prices for organic fruits and vegetables are roughly the same. For non organic apples at a supermarket expect to pay around $3.99 per pound, while organic apples would be placed at $4.49, so expect somewhat of a price hike, but nothing that will break the bank.  Organic foods are  becoming more accessible, cheaper, abundant so we may see some families start to take a more natural approach to cooking and eating once exposed to it.
