Vegetables are the antizombie, rising out of the ground to demand we devour their artichoke hearts and cauliflower brains. Hunt down some new green friends with today's Groupon: for $23, you get $46 worth of certified-organic-produce delivery from Brown Box Organics. Each order must include one of any variety box.
Brown Box Organics, featured in Boise Weekly, transports non-GMO produce from a collection of certified-organic farms to local doorsteps, aiming to kick-start organic diets or supplement store-bought food. Variety boxes bundle ever-shifting seasonal produce into one handy package, sparking culinary inventiveness and fortifying a healthy body with potent vitamins. A small variety box ($22.64) feeds two to three people for a week, whereas a large variety box ($30.19) satisfies three to five family members for a week, or one elephant for 17 minutes. Groupon holders can use any remaining balance toward another variety box or toward one of the side packages such as the assorted fruit side ($9.99) that injects at least three extra varieties of fruit into kitchens. A three-item assorted salad side ($5.99) wipes guesswork out of green eating with heads of lettuce and salad greens. Though not valid for purchase with your Groupon, Brown Box Organics also offers other items such as a variety of locally roasted coffees ($12.49/lb.), Treasure Valley salsas ($4.99 each), and more.
Produce-packed boxes arrive between 3 p.m. and 9 p.m. on a delivery day designated by zip code. Since the gaggle of groceries arrives fresh from farms, it survives well on doorsteps without degrading or doodling absentmindedly on sidewalks until its lucky recipient returns.
