Everyone knows the feeling, that glassy-eyed, unfocused haze that descends over the office around 2pm. The afternoon swoon may have you wishing you could curl up under your desk for a nap, or send you slouching to the break room coffee maker or vending machine for a caffeine or sugar boost. Though this afternoon energy dip may be partly due to our body’s natural rhythms, below are steps you can take to fight this sleepy slump and form healthy office habits.
We hope everyone is having a restful and meaningful Memorial Day. This week, we're experimenting with new items on the grill, exploring the many faces of cauliflower and getting creative with a new chef kit. No matter what you have cooking this week or as the summer starts to roll, you'll always be able to prepare delicious, produce-packed meals with help from your Boston Organics box.

(And don't forget to check out our blog for inspiration for how to use your custom box for all of your summertime adventures.)

Summer is so close you can literally taste it.
Summer doesn’t officially start until next week and Boston public schools are still holding classes (thanks a lot Snowpocalypse), but our fruits and vegetables don’t seem to care. The peaches, nectarines and plums are ripening rapidly and the scallions, chives, kale and zucchini are ready for harvest.

***UPDATE: Effective the week of 6/22/2015 we will no longer offer al FreshCo meal kits.***
Homemade always seems to taste better than the stuff you buy at the store. It's true with cookies, it's true with pickles, and it's definitely true with hummus.
Our new Hummus Meal Kit makes it easy for you to create a tasty, healthy snack that will impress all your party guests and might even encourage your kids to eat more vegetables!
The Hummus Meal Kit includes:
- Organic Garbanzo Beans (1 lb.)
- Garlic (1/4 lb.)
- Lemon (1)
- Recipe Card
The kit does NOT include olive oil, but you can always purchase Pons Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil as a separate add-on. If you purchase a new bottle, you're sure have plenty of quality Spanish olive oil left for stir-fries, pastas, and salad dressings!
Never made your own hummus before? Don't worry! The kit includes a recipe card that walks you through each step of the process so you'll be making hummus like a pro in no time.
The seasons are definitely changing now: the first plums, peaches, and cantaloupes of the year are going out in the 2/3 fruit and all fruit boxes this week!
Meanwhile, vegetable boxes are getting some flavorful zucchini, crisp green beans, and fresh leafy greens out of Florida where winter is just a faded memory.
Read this week's newsletter to learn about our new Pasta Meal Kits and see how we're planning to celebrate Earth Day!
