Transition to Organic

I have decided to write this post to keep track of my journey moving to organic foods and other healthier food options. You see, recently I was told to remove gluten, dairy, soy and red meat from my diet altogether for medical reasons. My first question was the same as everyone else’s- what’s left to eat?  Honestly- at first- I was stumped. When you work full time and have a 45 minute drive home, how do you keep food in the house, get to the grocery store, cook real food at home and make sure it fits within your diet?!  I was certain there was no possibility I could do this.

Luckily- as I started pushing through the inevitable challenges of change I came across a few tricks:

  • Meal Prepping – for example: I buy twice as much fish at a time, prep it, marinate it in a Ziplock back and freeze it. This way I have pre-prepped fish at anytime. You can see one of my recipes here: Lemon Honey Garlic Salmon.
  • Fresh fruits and Veggies – believe it or not, if you eat the right foods, you will honestly be ok eating less. The real nutrients in the real foods fill you up and keep you full much easier and much longer than processed items. Not too mention, they are way better for you than those genetically modified/chemical filled food items. yuck!

But again you ask- how do you get all of this done every night? The truth is – I’m not perfect, and I have become quite fond of the app – DoorDash to deliver food to my hosue from local restaurants on those nights that I just don’t want to cook. However, on the flip side- I found that by buying the right foods and keeping them in my house on the regular – Its really not too hard to keep things quick and healthy at home.

One of my favorite tricks is using “Farm Fresh” organic food delivery service. We have two alternating packages- one of veggies and fruits and the other of just organic fruits to snack on, I also have them deliver my cage free eggs.

Every 2 weeks a box is dropped off at my doorstep in the middle of the night so I have fresh produce available for in my fridge without ever having to go to the grocery store. Its amazing. If you are interested in trying – you can use this promo code:
