Ottawa Organics

Just have to put a big shout out there for Ottawa Organics and the basket we received today.

I started having a basket of organic fruits and vegetables delivered every two weeks several weeks ago, and it was probably the best idea I have had in a long time.

Recent research out of the UK says there is little difference in dietary value compared to non-organic produce. Well I do know one thing, there is certainly a difference in taste (perhaps because it hasn’t been pre-washed in pesticides?). I don’t even know how you begin to compare. As far as costs, we find using a service that specializes in organics is much cheaper than buying organic at the grocery store.

So let me tell you about the finds in my order this week (all grown in Ontario or Quebec with the exception of the Washington apples):

  • carrots
  • Delicious apples
  • apricots
  • 1 canteloupe
  • yellow beans
  • potatoes
  • lettuce
  • cilantro
  • white onions
  • 1 hothouse tomato

You can also add other items to your order (including things like milk and yes, my favourite Cocoa Camino products).

Yum!

  1. This is a great idea!! I think I may try it, everyone that I’ve known to order those baskets has been really happy with the produce! What size would you suggest for 1 person? I eat a lot of fruits and veggies!

    Thanks Cait’s mom!
