As a lover of fresh and whole foods I try my best to incorporate as much local, organic and fair trade foods into my diet as possible. Many see this as too much of a challenge to partake in, but in reality its just as easy, if not easier than buying GMO from a grocery chain.
Still doubting the simplicity of it all? Desert Lake Gardens to the rescue. This is a lazy girl’s guide to getting all those fresh greens without burning a hole in your pocket, or even leaving the house for that matter. For a small price of $25, Desert Lake Gardens, who produces and supplies local and organic foods, will deliver a bundle of health right to your doorstep. Want to take it a step further? They also have a great local deli and dairy selection along with a variety of prepared foods including sauces, soups, frozen entrees and baked goods! It’s almost too good to be true.
So if I, a busy student on a budget, can figure out how to make it work, I’m sure you can too (…with a little help).
Note: Desert Lake Gardens serves the Kingston area, however there are many options available for the Toronto area as well! – just google it!
