    Very cool i just ordered mine through charlies online…but didn’t get a box i ordered what we needed for a 2 week meal plan. HOpefully it will all last alright for that long. Otherwise i have my norwex fruit and veg spray that can apprently delay food from going off and it’s all natural!

    Also just wondering do you find you have to buy more fruit through the week? I find there’s never enough fruit in those boxes

    Man, I wish I were that organised. I usually go Masterchef challenge style: one beetroot, one cucumber, 50 million chillies and two tomatoes; ready, set, GO!

      I am not this organised very regularly, trust me! It’s usually every now and then, and I think it all up on the spot. Then I need to recover from the trauma for weeks afterwards.

    That”s some bloody good meal planning right there! I need to pull my finger out & get more organised, I am becoming super lazy in the kitchen because I’m going through one of those stages where I think “I’m hungry. What do I feel like? Nothing! But I’m hungry so I better eat something. Ok peanut butter toast/bagel /crackers it is!”” It’s shit! I wanna be like you 😉

      Dude, you’ve just described my life 99% of the time. This just appeals to my frugal side like “I just paid $8 for broccoli, like fuck I’m letting that go to waste!”. So every now and then when I get a box, I think up a bunch of recipes on the spot and go nuts. I DO recipe plan most of the time, but it’s like I pick 5 recipes for the week and end up making about three of them. But during the day I just eat seventy pieces of toast.

    Holy organisation Batman. We used to get veggie boxes, but then some weeks I’d get sick or things were super busy or I had a good book and things would get away from me. Or the kids would decide they would no longer eat corn. Or broccoli. Or food. Looking at all this is very inspiring however. Maybe time to get back into it!

      I don’t do it every week! But when I do it’s rad. meanwhile, my kids have never eaten veggies. Until now. So we buy eight miliion carrots and sweet potatoes because that’s the veggie du jour.
