I received free groceries in exchange for writing this post, but all opinions are definitely my own.
If you have been following my blog for a while now, you will know that I am always busy. I am usually frantically dividing my time between photographing a recipe, writing a paper for college, and picking up my kiddos from school. On top of all that, there is the small matter of making healthy meals for my family. I love finding ways to make meal prep fast and simple. I usually focus on streamlining the process of actually making the meal to save time. But when I was approached by Milk & Eggs about their grocery delivery service, I was intrigued.
I began by trying out Milk & Eggs’ service myself. I ordered online, and two days later I woke up to find a bright yellow cooler bag of groceries waiting at the front door. Their produce was fresh and delicious, and their pantry items were perfect for making healthy meals. In fact, I used their ruby red grapefruits, smoked salmon, avocados, and dandelion greens to make this delicious grapefruit smoked salmon salad, and served it with their crusty French bread.
Three things about their service particularly stood out for me:
- Their produce comes straight from local farms
- Their prices are lower than many local grocery stores
- They deliver throughout Los Angeles and Orange County (check out their service map)
Not only does most of their produce come from local farms, they also source many of their pantry and specialty items from small local businesses who focus on fresh ingredients and excellent products. I just LOVE that. I mean, who doesn’t want to support local farmers and small business owners while eating delicious healthy food? And there is a subscription option to have groceries delivered weekly or bi-weekly. So I was sold.
The great news for you guys is, Milk & Eggs are now offering my Los Angeles and Orange County readers the chance to win $100 to spend on their groceries. And all you have to do is sign up for their newsletter.
