Healthy living, like catching a really fast pig, requires balance, discipline, and a lack of grease. Move toward a healthier existence with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of herbs, oils, and more from the online marketplace Sweetwater Growers.
Featured on the Food Network, Sweetwater Growers cultivates and hand picks fresh herbs and greens within a controlled greenhouse on their family farm. Peruse the online marketplace to create savory spaghetti sauces or to garnish beef mozzarella rolls with a package of crisp living basil, freshly grown only four to six days before purchase ($2.99). With a wide selection of micro-greens to choose from, veggie connoisseurs can fortify multifarious foods with micro-cilantro ($15) and micro-celery ($15), or add a prismatic pop to a bowl of sofa-cushion crumbs with a package of micro rainbow confetti ($15). A large selection of award winning gourmet extra-virgin olive oils allows customers to baste their frying pans with basil- infused oil ($10.99), or to intensify staring contests after sipping on an infused crushed red pepper canola-and-EVOO blend ($5.99).
Rather than relying on the traditional forms of voodoo-harvesting rituals and crop seeding in soil, the crafty cultivators at Sweetwater Growers sprout their goodies in water. This system, called hydroponics, ensures larger yields and healthier plants. Sweetwater Growers releases more than a thousand ladybugs each week to ward off aphids and other plant-damaging bugs, ensuring plants are nurtured without the use of harmful pesticides or stern lectures about proper posture. Standard shipping is $6 per package and takes between three to four business days to arrive.
