One of the things that holds people back from cooking at home is the perceived inconvenience of grocery shopping. We’re so busy these days with kids, work, extra curricular activities, exercising and social events that the idea of grocery shopping can be overwhelming. These days food delivery services make it super easy to get healthy ingredients delivered right to your front door. Let’s talk about a few grocery food delivery options. If you haven’t tried it, you may be surprised at how easy and affordable it is!
Thrive Market is like Whole Foods meets Costco online. You pay an annual membership fee and you have access to hundreds of products at below retail prices. Thrive offers products such as dried herbs and spices, cooking fats, household products, beauty products, fresh meat and seafood, nut butters, and much more. The website is organized by categories which makes it easy to find what you’re looking for. They offer free shipping on all orders over $49 which is another great benefit. It’s a great way to stock up on pantry staples and fresh meat if you have a freezer big enough to store extra food. Thrive also donates a membership to a family in need for each membership purchased.
Amazon Prime Now
Amazon Prime Now offers grocery delivery from Whole Foods if you’re an Amazon Prime member. You can get fresh groceries delivered within two hours. You can order before you leave work and have fresh food waiting for you when you arrive home.
Local Grocery Store Delivery
Many of your local grocery stores such as Safeway, Vons, and Ralph’s also offer online ordering with pick up or delivery options. Often times they will have promotions for delivery options only so you will not only be saving time but saving money as well. Ask your local grocer if they offer a grocery delivery service.
Local coops are another great way to get fresh food delivered right to your door. This is a great option because most of the time the produce, meat, and eggs come from local farms and ranches so you’re getting the freshest produce and supporting local businesses in your community. Most of the produce from small farms are organic (even though they may not be certified organic) meaning you’re getting the highest quality food. Most of the time it’s more affordable to buy organic from a local farm than from a grocery store so you’ll save money as well. Search for local coops in your community and try it out to see how it works for you.
Butcher Box is another great online company where you can order fresh meat to be delivered right to your front door. They offer a variety of different packages or you can customize your own box. This is a subscription service which is really convenient because you automatically get a box shipped once a month. What’s even better is you can update your options each month or cancel your subscription at any time. We just received our first Butcher Box order last week. One of the items we received in our box was a whole chicken. I cooked the whole chicken in my Instant Pot and it was incredibly juicy. It was quick and easy to make and it has provided us with a healthy protein for multiple meals. This is a great option if you have a freezer big enough to store extra meat.
I encourage you to find a grocery delivery option in your community or order from one of the services mentioned above to see how it works for you. It’s a convenient way to healthy ingredients delivered right to your front door to make cooking in your kitchen much easier.
