Posted by Boston Organics on Sep 19, 2022 1:00:00 PM

If being more environmentally-friendly was one of your New Year’s resolutions, good for you! You already contribute to sustainability by choosing to support Boston Organics, and, by extension, organic producers. These growers don’t pollute our soil and water with toxic pesticides and synthetic fertilizers and help build the soil to ensure that organic farming can continue for generations. This week, we’re thinking about ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions related to food, especially those associated with eating meat and with food waste. Read on for ideas for experimenting with reducing your food's carbon footprint.

Power Up with Organic Smoothies

Posted by Boston Organics on Sep 19, 2022 12:45:00 PM

The power suit is a staple of many offices, but what about a power smoothie? Organic smoothies are a delicious and easy way to get in a serving of fruit or vegetable (or three!) and keep your energy up between meals. A break room blender and the contents of your Boston Organics box open a world of snacking possibilities for you and your office staff. By combining a liquid (almond milk, dairy milk, juice, coconut water), a thickener (banana, avocado, oats, yogurt), a protein (nut butter, yogurt) and fruit or vegetables, you can mix and match endlessly. Here are some of our favorite recipes, simple enough for a healthy office environment.

Refresh your Root-ine

Posted by Boston Organics on Mar 7, 2022 5:00:00 AM

In the cold months, we slow down a litte, spend more time inside, bundle up in layers...and eat root vegetables. With the yearning for sunshine and warmth may come a yearning for springtime vegetables. While we're not quite at the point where winter and roots are going away (regardless of what the occasional spring-like day might suggest), there is still plenty of good eating to be had from these relatively low carbon-footprint local vegetables. Explore techniques and recipes for The Classics, Glazing, Braising, Pickling or Fermenting, Chips, Gnocchi, Au Gratin, Latkes, Salads and more!

Beans, beans, the musical fruit, the more you eat, the more you.....!!

Posted by Boston Organics on Feb 7, 2022 9:20:41 AM

Beans are high in protein making them a popular food for vegetarian and vegan diets. But you don't have to be a herbivore to enjoy these nutrient rich legumes that lend themselves to all kinds of wonderful dishes.  And we've got a terrific new local source (ME) for heirloom beans, Baer's Best.

For the past three decades Charley and Carol Baer have been specializing in heirloom bean varieties that have grown here in the Northeast since colonial days. Many years ago beans were a New England staple and some local people may remember the traditional Saturday night meal of baked beans and brown bread. Now many people are rediscovering the benefits and pleasures of having beans as a regular part of their diet and finding new ways to enjoy these specialty beans.
