Local Mom Take the Hassle Out of Your Resolution to Get Healthy

A local mom has used her knowledge to take the hard work and high price tag out of your resolution to get healthy. Forget dragging your kids through the grocery store; just drive up, pick up and go!

If you're anything like me, you would love to feed nutritious, organic food to your families – and would love to get shocked looks when they realized they're eating "that healthy stuff."

If you're anything like me, you probably feel overwhelmed at the thought of scouring metro Atlanta for all the organic produce you'll need – and even more overwhelmed by the thought of finding recipes to fit your week's haul. Not to mention the high price tags that normally come with the “organic” or “local” label.

If you're anything like me, you wish there were an easy answer.

Six years ago, I was you. And six years ago, I made the commitment to change my life and kitchen table.

Mommy Made Green is the product of years of work, research, and building relationships with local farmers and vendors. I have poured my passion and time into finding local, affordable, organic options for my family – food that is flavorful and colorful, and that they actually enjoy. And with Mommy Made Green, I am proud and excited to offer other families a cost-effective, time-saving, and EASY way to get healthy, too.

Each year millions of us make resolutions to eat better or lose weight or go local or… well, you get the drift. But then February rolls around and we get discouraged by the challenges that arise: Organic food is expensive; local produce is hard to source (especially in the winter); and it's nearly impossible to find recipes for exactly what is available right now. Mommy Made Green removes those challenges from your path. It really is that easy.

With our organic box program, we offer fresh, local and organic produce at a 15-75% discount off your local grocery store, as well as other items such as grass fed beef and other meats, baked goods, household items, natural body care and cloth diapers. Even better, every week I post a full menu of recipes online – recipes that incorporate this week's selections to weave a healthy, delicious menu that even your picky eaters will enjoy. It's grocery shopping and menu planning, all in one fell swoop.

When you sign up for our email list, check your inbox each Saturday for details on what we're offering that week. You'll have until Monday night to fill your box with all the organic and local items you desire. On Thursday afternoon or evening, simply pick up your box at one of our convenient locations in Lawrenceville, Sugar Hill, or Loganville. Forget dragging your kids through the grocery store or being tempted by bakery goods; just drive up, pick up and go!

So what are you waiting for? Healthy doesn’t have to be a hassle. Let me help you make 2013 the year you actually keep your resolution!
