Bountiful Baskets!

Have you heard of Bountiful Baskets?!


There has been a whole lot of this around my house.....

And This......

And THIS........

I am loving it! Here is the low down......

You go to THIS website. You sign up. You make a "contribution" every Monday morning. Your contribution is $16.50. That includes one basket. LOADS of fruits and veggies. Then you can add the bread pack for $10. It comes with 5 loaves and the bread is whole grain, no preservatives and totally awesome! You can also throw in other miscellaneous packs they offer, if you want. One week I ordered the tropical pack. It came with the most divine mango's I have ever had, banana's, honeydew, pineapple, a coconut, mint leaves, vanilla beans, limes, lemons and STARFRUIT! DELISH! I made a fruit salad out of some of it! Totally different than my norm and TOTALLY AWESOME!

Honeydew, pineapple, starfruit and chunks of raw coconut! I felt so tropical! I LOVED IT!

Anyway, back to the skinny....when you make your contribution you pick your state (they are ALL OVER!) and the pick up spot closest to you. It will have the location and time for pick up listed.

On Saturday morning, you show up at that place, no later than 20 min after your pick up time, and they hand over a load of produce! All for $16.50 (plus anything else you may have ordered).

Here is the thing, I have heard a lot of people say that they don't eat that much produce and they are afraid it will go to waste. Some people split one order with someone else to help with that. I have learned that I eat WAY more produce now days! I know I will be replenished next week. AND that there is a lot to eat by then. I find that I am filling my meals with loads of fresh veggies. For dinner the other night we had Chicken Marsala, delicious corn on the cob, watermelon & steamed asparagus! It was so great!

To give you an idea of what comes in a basket, last week I got a LOT of red potatoes, fresh blueberries, bananas, a pineapple, a canteloupe, brocolli, romaine lettuce, jicama, apples, oranges, etc. Sometimes I have had watermelon, strawberries, corn, etc.

It has all been good and SO worth it!

In reviews I have read that people have priced what they got out at anywhere from $33-$62 worth of produce! All for $16.50. All fresher than from the store! I LOVE IT!

Just wanted to share it with you! Check it out! Feel free to ask anything about it! I may not have all the answers, but if I can help, I would love to!

My friend from Rexburg posted about a year ago about how much she loves these baskets. It would be interesting to find out whether or not she still does it and if she found it worth the money. It seems pretty well priced to me. I'll have to check it out sometime.

I have done BB since it came to Heber a couple years ago. I still love it. My only problem now is trying to get a basket before they all sell out!
