Avoid robber baron-like take-out franchises by filling up on fresh, organic fruits and veggies. Today’s Groupon offers $50 worth of Greenling groceries delivered to your doorstep for only $25. Escape a preservative- and pesticide-filled life without leaving home or building a protective bodysuit out of toffee.
Here’s how it works: Log in to the virtual grocery store, push your mouse through the clickable aisles, and load up on everything from Baraka bars to baby foods.

Plus, Greenling's organic foods are free of hydrogenated fats, artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, and preservatives, making them richer in minerals and vitamins and more nutritious than your average frozen dinner or fast food. You’ll feel better inside, outside, and inside.

Greenling has gotten a ton of media buzz. There have been mentions in Austin Business Journal and Tribeza, and on News 8 Austin. Greenling won Austin Business Journal's Going Green Award, and Best Local Food Company in the _Austin Chronicle_’s Reader Poll two years in a row. Yelpers give the innovative organic grocer five stars:
- I know it's dorky, but coming home to a big green box of mystery food on my doorstep every Friday afternoon makes my day. – Anna G.
- I really love their local box, it is forcing me to eat more veggies. Every week it shows up with a variety of veggies so it really makes me eat more veggies and new veggies I would otherwise. – Joe S.
- I'm eating at home more, I'm bringing my lunch to work, I feel great cuz I'm eating healthy, and I'm saving money on lunches. – Cam R.
The Hunger Artist: The Movie
Since today’s Groupon gives you such a great deal on the groceries you need in order to live a healthy lifestyle, you’ll have the full stomach and the money left over to see the new film based on Kafka’s short story, “The Hunger Artist.” Like many Hollywood blockbusters based on literature, the film takes some liberties with the story:
In the Story: A performer whose talent is to go without eating for weeks at a time sees audiences tire of his act. Eventually, his death is met with indifference.
In the Film: To track notorious serial killer the Hunger Artist, rogue cop Jake Taggart must first confront his own demons.
In the Story: The hunger artist’s lack of physical spectacle causes him to be replaced as entertainment by a caged panther.
In the Film: A building explosion injures Taggart’s pet panther, Sleepy T.
In the Story: In order to fulfill his art, the hunger artist must die, creating a paradox whereby he can only achieve his life’s goals by dying.
In the Film: Before shooting the crazed killer, Taggart says, “Still hungry? Eat this.”
When Mason Arnold left the University of Texas with his chemical-engineering degree in hand, he was appalled at how chemical fertilizers were hurting the local environment. Empowered by his belief in organic farming and landscaping, he and his business partner sought to find a way to get nutritious and fresh food to homes while leaving a minimal carbon footprint. The result was Greenling, an online shop with an extensive selection of pantry items, meats, produce, and dairy products from local farmers and national organic brands.
