Earthbound Farm Review and Giveaway Ends 11/5/11


The older I get -- the more I want to eat healthy foods. I suppose with age comes some wisdom. I am also still losing weight -- slowly but surely.

Eating healthier, for me, means eating more vegetables and trying to eat more organically grown produce.

I discovered Earthbound Farm a while back. I started buying their salad greens and pre-packaged salads.

I was so delighted when asked to host this review and giveaway. I knew right away this was a company I wanted to share with my readers.


Earthbound Farm's Mission:
Our mission is to bring the benefits of organic food to as many people as possible and serve as a catalyst for positive change.

I'm sure by now that you're all aware that my daughter, Lizz, and her fiance have become very aware of the importance of eating healthy foods due to his Diabetes. That boy can eat his weight in greens, onions, and tomatoes!

Their new found love of veggies is positively influencing Mike and me daily.

Earthbound Farm is devoted to bringing only the finest fruits and vegetables to your table. They are committed to providing clean organic produce at reasonable prices to every home.

Personally, I am a greens freak: spinach, arugula, lettuce... you name it, I'll eat it. I especially love the fact that I don't have to be concerned about pesticides or residue from chemicals that I can't pronounce or don't understand. Toss some greeens with chopped red onions... sliced tomatoes... and top with a little parmesan cheese... BLISS!


Why is ORGANIC so important? Let the folks at Earthbound Farm explain.

Why Organic?
Earthbound Farm’s delicious organic salads, fruits, and vegetables are grown with a concern for the things we all value most — the health of our families, the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the future for our children and generations to come.

As organic farmers, we use a variety of environmentally friendly methods to grow healthy crops without relying on synthetic pesticides or fertilizers.
*Organic farming helps protect our air, soil, water, and food supply from potentially toxic chemicals and other pollutants.
*Organic produce is grown without synthetic pesticides. We use no synthetic herbicides, fumigants, or fertilizers.
*Organic produce is never genetically engineered or modified, and is never irradiated.
*Organic farming conserves natural resources by recycling natural materials.
*Organic farming encourages an abundance of species living in balanced, harmonious ecosystems.




Earthbound Farm doesn't just offer veggies. They also offer a varied selection of fruits, cookies, granola and more!


One of the best things to come from Earthbound Farm recently is their amazing new cookbook, The Earthbound Cook from author Myra Goodman. The Earthbound Cook: 250 Recipes for Delicious Food and a Healthy Planet by Myra Goodman (Workman Publishing 2010).


Delicious Food from a Greener Kitchen:
As a busy working mom and creative cook, Myra Goodman knows how to make food taste good. And as the co-founder of Earthbound Farm, she knows how producing food sustainably can do good. Put those two things together, and you have her new cookbook, The Earthbound Cook: 250 Recipes for Delicious Food and a Healthy Planet.

In this, her second cookbook, Myra weaves all new recipes into an Earth-friendly theme from starters to seafood, meat to side dishes, breakfast to dessert. For example, there’s a chapter devoted to Vegetarian EntrĂ©es; the Vegetable and Grains Salads chapter shows imaginative ways to create tasty salads with substance; and there’s a Baking chapter full of wonderful breads, pita, and pizza.

Together with the delectable food, Myra includes easy guidance for conscientious shoppers about making eco-friendly choices at the market, plus primers on cooking methods and tools, sidebars with insightful ingredient information — and tons of Green Living tips, too.
