A healthy lifestyle consists not only of proper diet and exercise, but also of adopting the practice of being environmentally conscious. Here in Chicago, residents have the luxury and convenience of healthy, naturally grown fruits and vegetables and organic produce. Although as a busy mom, dad, student, or professional you may not have the time to venture to the local farmer’s market to pick-up organic produce, there are a few organic produce companies that deliver right to your door.
Newleaf Natural Grocery Inc. is one local pick for organic produce delivery in Chicago. Delivering to both Evanston and Chicago, Newleaf currently delivers to most Chicago neighborhoods including: the Loop, South Loop, Wicker Park, Logan Square, Ukrainian Village and Pilsen. Whether your preference is fruits or vegetables, Newleaf offers different size and produce combinations to satisfy your taste buds. If a combination of fruits and vegetables is what you crave, you can choose the box for $15, $25.50 or $33. The “Just Fruit” box can be delivered in either a $15 size or $25.50, and the “Just Veggies” comes in a $15 box. Regardless of your selection, delivery is only $5.
If you’re curious as to what may come in your box of fruits and vegetables – and I’m sure most of you want to know if you will be receiving bananas or oranges – their website lists the contents of each of the boxes for each week. Newleaf also offers other local and organic items – with free delivery over $10 – including Co-op hot sauce, organic extra virgin olive oil, honey, marinara sauce, and many other goods. ongkir Surabaya Jakarta
