Get Your Perfectly Imperfect Produce

Hi all!

As you know, I’ve started getting a weekly Imperfect Produce box. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I love my produce and I love the business model of Imperfect. Read about it and the types of box delivery they offer on their website.

To thank you for spreading the news, Imperfect is offering to me and my readers a discount to try our delivery service. The promotion code is for 50% off your first box, which you can receive by using the code LILY50.

I’ve been using my delivery to try to things, eat a wider variety, save some money and eat more seasonal fruits and veggies. I really have been enjoying it! One of the delights of opening the box each week is definitely looking at the weirdly shaped veggies and fruit. Some are only imperfectly colored. Some have a few scars, others are simply surplus. Regardless, the food is great-tasting.

Look for recipes and food preservation ideas in upcoming blog posts.

Unboxing Imperfect Produce Week 2

Totally unsponsored unboxing of my perfectly Imperfect Produce delivery. The opinions are all mine. 

Week 2 brought some variations on the winter squash and root theme. I got medjool dates, 4 limes, radicchio, cabbage, onions and a spaghetti squash. 

Some notes about cost. Food is a highly volatile market! There are some great findings in the organic box and some prices are not better than my local grocery store. 

Example: organic beets

Imperfect $2.99 red, greens removed

Fred Meyer $2.49 red or golden with greens

However, in that same box, I will get surplus shiitake mushrooms at $5.99 for 8 oz (.75/oz). At Fred Meyer, conventional shiitake mushrooms are $4.99 for 5 oz ($1/oz).
