Easy, quick, and delicious Mexican Chicken & Avocado Corn Salsa from The Produce Box

I love using my Produce Box ingredients to create fresh and delicious meals. It’s inspiring to use locally-sourced ingredients to create new recipes.

I’ve found a few ways to get dinner on the table when I’m busy, and one of my new favorite ways is using a meal kit from The Produce Box and Paradise Provisions. The Produce Box is a fantastic service in North Carolina that provides boxes of fresh produce, meats, dairy, and bakery items directly …

Copycat Chick-fil-A Market Salad Featuring The Produce Box

The Produce Box is a wonderful service here in North Carolina that provides you with fresh produce, meats, dairy, and bakery items directly from North Carolina farmers and other small business owners.

It’s like a farmer’s market brought right to your door. (Want to become a member? Check it out here!) Because of my Produce Box deliveries, I have become much more aware of the parts of food that we use and the parts that go to waste.

Meatless Monday Featuring The Produce Box: Vegetarian Lasagna

So, like most everyone in January, I decided it’s time to get healthy and eat better. This time I decided I’m not doing it by myself, but will also include the whole family. It’s so much easier to stick to a healthy meal plan when you only have to prepare one meal for everyone. The Produce Box One thing that has made this decision much easier in my very busy life is The Produce Box. The Produce Box is a wonderful service here in North Carolina that brings fresh produce, meats, dairy, and …
