Want to eat fresh & local?Join a co-op! This is such a great way to do both and save money all in one.
I have been doing a Co-op for about a month now and I’m not sure what I would do if I didn’t have it in my life. I knew when I heard about this group I had to take advantage of this because lets be honest I would be dumb to let this pass me up. I not only work full time, but I am a mom of 2 and a blogger on the side so I had to find something that works for me and my family.
Being a member of a co-op is only good! There are so many benefits to being in a cooperative group so I broke it down to 4 reason why you shouldn’t let this pass you!
- Veggies with every meal. Being apart of a co-op has mad me incorporate more veggies and fruits in my meals. I find myself cooking with all of my veggies and creating different meals with the veggies that I have in my refrigerator. I feel like I have to cook every veggie in my refrigerator because in a co-op you get so much veggies and fruits that you feel bad if they go bad.
- Keep it local. The veggies and fruits are usually grown by local farmers, which makes it that much better. I am all about supporting small businesses and shopping local to keep the money in my community.
- Saving money. I get an entire basket of fruits and veggies for only $20. If you have been to the grocery store lately then you know how cheap that is because I probably spend $40 a week just on my morning smoothie stuff.
- Healthy family. I not only make my 8 month old baby food with the fresh fruits and veggies but I also google different creative recipes that my picky 3 year old will eat. He loves pizza so I cut up all of the veggies and made a veggie pizza and on the side we had a salad! That’s a win in my house. My husband even complimented me on how I am using the co-op to make our family that much more healthier.
A special thank you to Brittany Harrison Broxton and Darcy Hollingsworth for putting this group together and sending out reminders everytime it’s co-op week!
