Pre-cut fruit and vegetables

If pre-cut is the only way you’ll eat fruit and veggies that don’t end up in the compost bucket, go for it. Otherwise, save close to 40% in food costs by avoiding pre-sliced and packaged produce.

New Year’s Day

A fresh start. A new chapter in life waiting to be written. New questions to be asked, embraced, and loved. Answers to be discovered and then lived in this transformative year of delight and self-discovery. Today, carve out a quiet interlude for yourself in which to dream, pen in hand. Only dreams give birth to change.
