Win A $100 Visa Gift Card & Learn Why I Love Fresh Direct


As a food blogger (well, half food blogger, half mom and all the other stuff I blog about, blogger) you might have guessed that my food is really, really important to me. More specifically, my ingredients are really, really important to me.

You might recall me talking about this a little bit last year, when I started my very first garden. I decided to grow a lot of my own herbs and vegetables. This year, I've expanded that garden which now includes fruit. Chris is building a green house for me so I have even more room.

Why?

Because I'm all about quality control. Little known fact about yours truly? I grew up in the food business. I'm a bit of a food snob, in fact. And I'm not a fan of not knowing where my food is coming from, or knowing when it was harvested.

Let me introduce you to an awesome company, FreshDirect. When I heard about them I was SO excited. They aren't in my area yet (visit their website to see if they service your town) but I'm hoping they will be here one day soon! FreshDirect offers a great solution to my aforementioned problem with produce, with their Star Rated Produce program.

The great people at FreshDirect know what's in season so you don't have to. They test all of the produce they buy every single day, and give it a rating based on their 5 Star Freshness scale. They even go as far as to offer you a satisfaction guarantee. Want more information about how they source their food? Check out their informative and entertaining videos on their YouTube page.


Even more awesome? Your orders are delivered how you want it, when you want it. You can order your prosciutto sliced extra thin with paper in between each slice, and that's how it will come. You can ask for your New York steaks to be cut extra thick, and you've got it. Want something tied up a certain way? No problem. You can customize all of your deli meats, cheeses, steaks and roasts just about any way you want. Check out this page for more information on customizing your order.

Did I mention you can buy in bulk? Their website has some great bulk packaged items that I would totally be taking advantage of! Oh, and if you're not a big cook, no worries. They offer freshly prepared meals from famous chefs!


FreshDirect is unlike any other grocer. Their dedication to knowing where the products come from, their quality and freshness, the treatment of their food, and their price really sets them apart. They also offer 24 hour customer service, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, have nearly perfect order fulfillment and one of the easiest websites to use. It's so easy!

Wow, I am so jealous of all of you who are able to get FreshDirect Deliveries! Try them out and let me know what you think!
