Let me Share with You my March Meal Idea and Tips

Courage, winter is almost coming to an end. And in the meantime, the month of March already offers a beautiful harvest of fresh seasonal products to feast on small savory dishes until sunny days!
It’s there in a few days on the change of season! The first flowers start to come out of the ground, and the little birds will start singing again! I love this time when everything comes alive when everything seems to come to life. Spring is upon us 🌱 In March, we say goodbye to some winter vegetables, but above all, we say hello to green celery, kohlrabi, endives, and spinach! On the fruit side, we continue with apples and pears and allow ourselves a few citrus fruits even if they are not local. Check out my March meal ideas.

Another meal idea, If you like to eat healthy and seasonal fruit & vegetable Farm Fresh to you is a perfect alternative. I love the concept, an organic farm retailer that delivers organically grown fruits and vegetables to shoppers’ doorsteps. Customers can add and swap out items as they wish and also enjoy foods such as handcrafted jams, pasture-raised eggs, artisan olive oil, and more. 

How Does it Work? 

1- Pick your box style; you can choose and change the size of the product you want 

2- You can make any change online to the product arriving 

3- The box is delivered directly to your door

What’s Include in the Box? 

  • Flexibility to change your box size, type, and delivery frequency
  • Ability to add artisan farm products like fresh eggs, dairy, pickled veggies, honey, and jams
  • Included your fresh and organic fruit and vegetables
  • Get a newsletter with recipes, stories from our farm, produce tips, and event info.

I like them because you can change whatever product at any time; you have an organic and fresh product essential to me. You can choose the frequency, weekly, every other week, every three weeks, or every four weeks, and they have a great service. Farm Fresh to You also has a blog with a different recipe to make delicious smoothies. You can create your box with the product you love, but they also propose six other packages ready to go! 

What are the Packages Ready to Go? 

  • Mixed fruit and veggie box, an excellent choice for families
  • No cooking (fun name), the package offers mostly fruits and only fast, easy to prepare the vegetable. 
  • Fruit only, I guess you know what it is. It’s 100% fruits. Perfect if you like to make smoothies or for snacking 
  • The traditional CSA, the unique and original box, I love the idea. This box offers a mix of products from their farm and neighboring partner farm. It’s most locally season. 
  • The box veggie-only, an assortment of organic vegetable, perfect for keeping your diet healthy
  • And you have the snack pack a box with fruit easy to eat.

And great news, you can also add your basic grocery, meat, drink, bakery. It is a wide choice if you want to eat healthy with fresh and organic products. I recommend them!
