Two of my favorite things: local, organic, fresh food, and not having to grocery shop. Life gets SO busy and between school, work, blogging and maintaining a relationship/social life, when I get home for the day the LAST thing I want to do is go to the grocery store. Here’s where Green BEAN Delivery comes in, they deliver the best of the best groceries straight to you. YES PLEASE.
Green BEAN Delivery’s main goal is to ensure that healthy and sustainably-grown local food is affordable and easily accessible to the Midwest communities they serve. They focus on creating a self-sustaining food ecosystem, educating farmers and artisans on how to reach their full market potential, growing delicious food in their two certified organic farms, and conveniently distributing healthy, affordable food. My favorite part, however, is that they’ve donated 550,000 pounds of healthy food to fight hunger in their surrounding communities, and have a zero-waste policy. At the end of every week, they donate fresh produce to food banks and anti-hunger organizations. This company is on par with everything I stand for, and I am so glad I found them.

*not pictured-Skinny Piggy Sun Kissed Lavender kombucha and Sixteen Bricks Bakehouse Rye bread*
Everything was fresh and in impeccable condition, tasted amazing, and I loved having it come straight to my door.
Let’s talk about kombucha for a sec, because I’ve had many people ask why I’m addicted to this stuff and what the health benefits are from drinking it. Kombucha contains a significant amount of the healthy bacteria known as probiotics. Probiotics support a healthy immune system by lining your digestive tract, and improve overall gut health. Kombucha also naturally increases energy and metabolism, and the best part, it’s bubbly and DELICIOUS. It’s like drinking a soda without all of the bad shit.
I was very, very excited to find this Skinny Piggy White & Lavender Tea kombucha in my Green BEAN Delivery box, and had to snap a quick pic before taking the rest because I drank it immediately. Not kidding, it’s insanely good. Lavender is one of my favorite flavors, so I especially loved this one. I used to drink a lot of soda and when I was ready to ditch it, people always recommended drinking flavored sparkling water as a substitute. Nope, bland. Nothing worked besides kombucha, and now I actually prefer it over soda. HURRAY!
And last but not least, here is the recipe for this amazing avocado toast situation. I used ingredients that I received in my Green BEAN Delivery order. So many flavors, a bit of crunch, and very filling. Trust me!
- 2 slices of toasted rye bread
- 1 cup baby spinach
- 1 mashed avocado
- 1/2 thinly sliced watermelon radish
- 2 cage free eggs
- Microgreens (I used radish)
- 2 tsp. oil of choice (I prefer avocado oil)
Fry two eggs on medium heat until they are cooked to your liking. While they fry, sauté spinach in oil of choice until it is fully saturated and wilted. Divide mashed avocado in half and spread one half on each slice of toasted rye bread. Also divide sautéd spinach in half and add one half on top of mashed avocado. Place 3-4 thin slices of watermelon radish over sautéed spinach, and add fried egg on top of radishes. Top with salt, pepper, crushed red pepper (if you like spice), and microgreens. Enjoy!
