With summer in full swing, I’ve been cooking with and eating a lot of fruits and vegetables. They’re fresh and perfect for the warmer weather, and fit in perfectly on my WW journey. Plus, now that our daughter is almost 16 months old and eating more, it’s nice to offer her healthy options.
So I was really excited to hear about truLOCAL‘s new add-ons: non-GMO fruits and vegetables! We’ve been long-standing subscribers of this incredible service, and trust them for the high quality products they deliver month after month. I also love how convenient it is to have these products added to our monthly box and then delivered, instead of purchasing them from the grocery store.
In today’s post, I’ll share the scoop about these new add-ons.
What are truLOCAL Add-Ons?
For the first time, you can add more than truLOCAL‘s staple meat, poultry, and seafood items to your box. Add your choice of up to four types of frozen fruits and/or vegetables, each packaged in 1 kg bags.
Add-ons are added on a one-time basis and don’t renew with your subscription, so you can switch up your items from box to box.
Learn more about them here.
Which fruits and vegetables are available?
truLOCAL currently offers the following non-GMO frozen items:
- Baby carrots
- Brussel sprouts
- Sweet potatoes
See pictures of their beautiful produce here.
Where are they available?
As of August 17, 2020, truLOCAL add-ons are only available in Ontario. They will likely be introduced in Alberta, British Columbia, and Illinois in the near future.
Are they locally sourced?
While truLOCAL‘s new additions are all non-GMO, they aren’t necessarily all local to the province in which you’re ordering. It’s incredibly difficult to source non-GMO produce in large quantities locally, so truLOCAL is working with a supplier that sources some of the best non-GMO products in the world.
In short, you’re getting the same high quality you’re used to, but your frozen broccoli or mango may be from a little further afield.
How should I use them?
The options are endless! Salads, side dishes, and smoothies are just a few options. I like putting frozen fruit in overnight oats, and frozen broccoli is perfect in veggie tots.
How can I add non-GMO fruits and veggies to my order?
If you end up ordering some add-ons, please let me know how you like them! Have any other questions? Leave them in a comment below. Bon appetit!
