EATING WELL IN KANSAS CITY - September 2017 - Kansas City

Your Culinary Canvas Delivered to Your Door

By Gloria Gale

 

Off to the grocery store, again? Ugh. Rely on a service that saves you the trip.

 

When I go to the store, regardless of my list, inevitably, I forget something. 

 

Discovering Door to Door Organics has picked up the slack.

 

It’s an online grocery delivery company around since 1997. 

 

Door to Door Organics digs in deep to uncover local farms and purveyors of fresh, good-for-you food.

 

When I looked at the online list of providers, here’s a few: Great Grans Pickle Company, Heil Produce, KC Buffalo Company, Mean Vegan, and Quixotic—all of them offered humanely raised meats and chicken, sustainably raised seafood, grains, fruits, and veggies grown and packed with the consumer in mind. 

 

According to Door to Door Organics, “We scour food labels to ensure every item at our Shop meets our minimum Good Food Standards: No artificial sweeteners, preservatives, colors, and flavors; hormones; antibiotics; high-fructose corn syrup; trans fats; nitrates/nitrites; bleached/bromated flour & a list of about 75 other banned ingredients.”

 

The idea of an online non-gmo, organic-in-a-box delivery is long overdue. Come to think of it, crafting your own box to your specs makes eating clean so smart.

 

Once you join the online community, you can mix and match, try a new flavor profile, or restock favorite items.  From organic, whole-wheat bread to Vanilla Hemp Milk, there’s a variety of food to temp the pickiest palette.

 

Don’t like certain fruits or veggies? No problem.  Just jump on the website and design a box, from small to large, and fill it with your favorites.  The box arrives to your door, insulated for whatever season necessary.

 

So, for $19.99 +$5 shipping, here’s what’s in a Bitty Box. 

  • 3 Organic Bananas

  • 2 Organic Pink Lady Apples

  • 2 Organic Bosc Pears

  • 1 Organic Grapefruit

  • 1 Organic Baby Carrots 1 lb

  • 1 Organic Cucumber

  • 1 Organic White Mushrooms 8 oz

  • 1 Organic Butternut Squash

  • 1 Organic Grape Tomatoes pint

 

There’s more.

 

Door to Door Organics not only makes eating well easy, they keep up with the latest foodie trends, have meal-planning tools, frequently offer exclusive deals and giveaways, and help connect you with the local farming and artisan food scene. 

 

There are very few excuses left not to eat well.  This is one of those companies that will make it easy for you. 

 

It’s worth a try.
