Last week I tried out a box of organic produce from Organics Live. I ordered the small box ($37) designed for 1 to 2 people. The box included bananas, Ambrosia apples (from B.C.), mango, blueberries, avocados, red swiss chard, celery, kale, gold beets, white mushrooms (Ontario) and french fingerling potatoes. Talk about a clean eaters dream!
I was SUPER impressed by the variety, freshness and quantity. It is definitely enough produce to fuel Chris and I through the week. I love how the box included foods I wouldn’t normally think of buying in the grocery store - forcing me to try new recipes, cook with different ingredients and fuel my body with alternative clean foods. I also received an email on the day of delivery with six recipe ideas based on the contents of the box - such a great idea!
Organics Live delivers to the GTA, Kitchener-Waterloo, Cambridge and Guelph regions. I’m so excited to try out these new ingredients and create some clean recipes throughout the week. Check out Organics Live and try out a box for yourself here.
In the meantime, here’s an easy peasy delicious single serving salad I whipped up with ingredients from this weeks Organics Live box. It’s perfect for lunch or dinner. The maple roasted beets are the perfect mix of sweet, salty and warm n’ cozy. Enjoy :)
Sweet n’ Salty Roasted Beet, Blueberry & Kale Salad
Makes: 1 serving
Prep Time: 40 minutes
- 1 cup finely sliced kale
- 1/4 cup blueberries
- 1 golden beets, cubed
- 1 tbsp hemp seeds
- extra virgin olive oil
- pure maple syrup
- Preheat oven to 425.
- In a mixing bowl, mix cubed golden beets with 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tbsp maple syrup and 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil. Season with sea salt and black pepper. Toss until well coated.
- Place beets on a foil lined baking sheet. Bake in oven for 30 minutes.
- In the mean time, place your finely sliced kale in the same mixing bowl you used for the beats (to soak up that left over maple-cinnamon flavour!) and toss well with 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil.
- Remove beets from oven. Serve while hot on top of a bed of kale. Top with blueberries and hemp hearts. Enjoy!
